How would EXO member Tao look like as a fantasy soldier or a magician? A new video shows the idol wearing costumes and playing the role of two characters in the Chinese mobile game Chao Shen Zhan Dui , reports Allkpop.
The video, which is shown below and uploaded on May 19 on the EXO Live VOD Youtube account, shows Tao posing in front of the camera for what seems to be a promotional campaign for the videogame.
Tao first wore what looked to be a magician’s costume with a flowing cape, and stylized golden cuffs and mantle.
Then he changed costumes into an oversized soldier outfit with plated armor, humongous shoulder pauldrons and a one-handed sword.
After watching the video, fans found Tao to be a natural at costume play or cosplay.
“Wow I always thought he resembled an anime/game character but now the thing got serious XD,” “This is a dream come true! Look at my baby in cosplay,” and “OMG he looks so damn hot and handsome here!” said fans on the comments threat of the YouTube upload.
Aside from wearing fantasy costumes, Tao also wore stylish suits for the photoshoot.
Some fans were curious as to when the photoshoot was taken.
While the video shows the number 150520 – which could stand for the date May 20, 2015 – Tao has reportedly broken away from EXO and has been spotted in California, United States where is said to be seeking treatment for his injuries, leaving the possibility that this was shot weeks or months before.
