Exo M and K are SM’s newest artists meant to target the Chinese and the Korean market respectively. They are the most anticipated rookies of the first half of the year with already a legion of super supportive fangirls. EXO’s primary purpose is to target the Chinese market which is both extremely lucrative and difficult for foreign artists to break into. EXO, specifically EXO-M, is SM’s first foray into truly conquering the heart of Chinese fangirls. And that’s all fine and dandy. The problem lies in the disturbingly obvious symbolism found in their teasers (23 in total!!!) and in their recently revealed music video for their debut single, “MAMA”. Watch the video here.
In this post, we will further explore the symbolism.
WARNING: LONG POST
The video begins with a fairy tale like story about the tree of life that was destroyed because of unknown ‘evil forces’.
Interestingly, the tree of life is found in the Jewish mysticism religion known as Kabbalah. Kabbalah is known to be used in mind control programming which is why it is so popular amongst the Hollywood elite. Many of the religion’s most well known followers are strongly rumored to be mind control slaves or mind control handlers (Madonna, Barbra Streisand, Britney Spears, among others).
The similarities between the tree of life found in EXO’s video and the tree of life worshiped by misguided Kabbalah followers doesn’t end there. The elements that are found in each of the circles correspond with the elements that the EXO members have in the music video.
The first element called ‘Keter’ is known as ‘limitless light’ which is Baekhyun’s superpower.
The second element is called ‘Chokmah’ which controls both time and space. This could also be called ‘telekinesis’ which is Luhan’s superpower.
Third element is ‘Binah’ which is time. Tao super power is Time control.
Although not all of the elements correspond perfectly with the Kabbalistic tree of life, there’s strong evidence to conclude that both trees of life are strongly connected.
The intro continues by stating that the tree of life had to split into two opposite forces. And that when they are reunited again, a new world shall open up. I hope I don’t have to explain why this phrase is significant to the subject of this blog.
Just from the intro alone we understand that this group is not simply any ordinary group, this group is going to set the stage for occult symbolism in KPOP. No other KPOP group till date has been as blatantly clear about the people who work in the shadows — the real leaders of this world and therefore the real leaders of KPOP.
The setting quickly changes to a dark and ominous secret place, where all 12 members of EXO unite to chant and worship an unknown ‘god’.
The robes that they sport are known attire for Illuminati rituals and celebrations. A few examples:
The last most significant symbol is the monarch butterfly found very briefly in the MV:
It’s not just any butterfly. It is a monarch butterfly. Monarchs are special in occult symbolism because they are the specific butterfly used to program mind control victims. It’s found all over popular culture and especially in those who are rumored to be monarch slaves (In Asia, it’s pop queen Ayumi Hamasaki and in the west, Mariah Carey). It’s very interesting that the editors/producers/director chose this specific butterfly out the millions of species.
There are various other minor symbols (one eye, checkerboard floors, sun-themed jewelry and lots of mirror imagery towards the end) the ones mentioned above are the primary and most striking symbols that command the most attention.
It’ll be very interesting to observe EXO’s journey as talents and see if their symbolism manifests into success that can rival the current cash crop – Girls’ Generation (a post on them coming very soon).
