Debuting as a subunit in 2016, Chen, Baekhyun, and Xiumin made up the successful CBX subunit that has since gone on to create a number of hit songs. But in 2019, there’s one member of EXO that decided the trio needs a bit of a changeup and was only too happy to volunteer!
During the latest episode of Travel Around the World on EXO’s Ladder, Chanyeol became teammates with Baekhyun and Xiumin. Knowing that “ChenBaekXi” could easily be turned into “ChanBaekXi”, he soon declared that his team was CBX!
“ChanBaekXi! We’re CBX!”
The announcement didn’t go over so well with Chen, who wasn’t so happy with suddenly finding out he wasn’t a part of CBX anymore!
Despite Chen’s objections, Chanyeol’s sudden “Blooming Days” performance had an effect on his fellow members and even led Suho to admit the trio did need a rapper!
“They do need a rapper.”
Fans have been getting a kick out of Chanyeol’s CBX plans and find the members reaction to the news pretty hilarious!

And while Chen knows it was all said in fun, he really doesn’t need to worry about Chanyeol taking his spot in CBX since there’s a rumor that EXO will be debuting another subunit very soon with Chanyeol!
