EXO-Ls living outside of Seoul are sharing their disappointments for being excluded from Oksusu’s Travel the World on EXO’s Ladder.
When the return of EXO’s reality show was announced, international EXO-Ls living overseas already knew they couldn’t enjoy the show with fans living in Korea since the site blocks streaming in overseas countries. They were understandably disappointed for missing out on the chance to see the show in real-time and frustrated to be overlooked by the media platform.
Its amazing how this company dont give a damn about their international fans!You know how hard it will be for us..but that wont stop us. Watch me stream it everyday on oksusu like I did with CBXs ladder!But its sad you dont want more ppl to see #EXO!Useless company@weareoneEXO

But this time around, it wasn’t only the international EXO-L that felt the exclusion from the show.
On January 8, Oksusu revealed a treasure hunt event that will be held on January 10, between 3pm-10pm. The instruction stated exclusive poster cards and QR code to access messages from the members will be hidden throughout Seoul for the fans to find.
Although it encouraged all EXO fans to join the fun, the fact that the event was being held on a weekday in Seoul location isolated fans that are living in other provinces.
엑사세 결론 : 서울 살고 시간 많고 인내심 있는 에리들이 서울 돌아다니면서 런닝맨식으로 연두색 봉투 찾아야함

“Event Conclusion: Eris who live in Seoul with a lot of time and patience must run around Seoul like Running Man to find light green envelopes”
엑사세 뭐하니….. 지방러들은……? 나 서울 가는데 기본 4시간 넘는데……?

“What are they thinking… How about those who live in other provinces…? It takes me more than 4 hrs to get to Seoul……?”
It seems like many fans were not happy with the event and didn’t see the need for making fans running around the big city in cold winter temperatures. While they share the disappointments for the show officials, fans wished all of the participating EXO-Ls good luck and hope everyone will be safe in harsh weather condition.
