K-pop mega group EXO has just successfully wrapped their concert tour here in Kuala Lumpur over the weekend.
During the event, a concert-goer posted a short clip on Twitter. It shows an EXO-L (EXO stan) performing her prayer in a small room before entering the stadium to watch the award-winning group in action. The tweet soon became the talk of the town on the social media.

“Idk (I don’t know) who are you but yeah may Allah bless you,” the netizen known as @IzzaOnly wrote on the caption, before adding, “See her level?” emphasising on how she put her major responsibility first beforehand. The tweet has received over 14,000 likes at the time of writing (Wednesday, 18th December).
One user with the tweethandle @immabefan questioned why the girl didn’t perform her prayer at the nearby mosque instead. In response, another fan clarified by saying that the girl chose to pray there since the weather was bad at that time. Furthermore, they also weren’t allowed to enter the prayer room located inside the stadium.
Ada masjid kat luar tapi mungkin sbb hujan so she decided utk solat situ je. Surau kat dalam usually tak boleh guna selagi tak masuk

Looking at the replies, most of the local netizens have came forth with words of praise and respect towards the girl. They have pointed out that despite the joy of witnessing her favourite act live on stage, she didn’t forget to fulfil her responsibility as a Muslim.
Some fans also asked everyone to shed their shallow view when it comes to K-Pop music. They argued on how some people would say that K-pop fans are typically obsessed with everything related to K-pop that they often neglect other priorities.

The girl is a good example for other youngsters out there that there is no excuse for them to neglect their responsibilities. Do you agree?
