No matter which country, as long as it’s a stage with EXO’s fans,
You guys were unanimous in selecting EXO-K as K-pop’s next big thing, with the boy band beating out runner-up, Juniel, by roughly 90,000 votes in our tournament to determine the K-pop act most likely to go huge in 2013. It’s a landslide victory for SM Entertainment’s latest creation, but not at all a shock one. While EXO-K didn’t promote nearly as much as their rookie rivals, B.A.P, this year, their debut EP, MAMA, was one of the highest selling K-pop releases of 2012. In fact, it’s been so successful on the charts that it can’t even be compared to other rookie acts — the disc has actually shifted more copies than albums released by top-tier superstars like JYJ’s Junsu, CNBLUE, KARA, and even PSY himself.
Even at this early stage in their career, EXO-K have already shown off multiple musical styles through their MAMA promotions. Buzz single, “What is Love,” is a beautifully lush ballad built around the silky smooth vocals of members D.O. and Baekhyun, the tropical dance-pop of “History” recalls some of SM’s finest earmworms, and the explosive “MAMA” breaks all the pop rules by incorporating operatic chanting and a screamo breakdown (that that, dubstep!). After all this dabbling, we’re looking forward to seeing the boys narrow down a specific concept in 2013. They’ve already slam dunked their debut, so next year is EXO-K’s chance to really take things to the next level and show that they’ve got what it takes to last the distance. And judging by their mammoth win in our tournament, you guys have every faith that they’re going to be able to do it.
Long Yang’s comments during her TV show: “Coming home empty-handed for the New Year is still forgivable. What’s not is showing up in these ‘wash-cut-blow’ hairdos!”
Long Yang’s apology on her Weibo: “I offer my apologies to everyone! The topics of talk shows are sometimes targeted, however, sometimes they are just descriptive about a picture without any specific contents. Nonetheless, it is an error on our part for causing the misunderstanding. I wish to offer my most sincere apologies for that. EXO-M is fortunate to have you as fans and I hope to give them my support too. ‘8090-Liners’ support EXO-M who fights to achieve their dreams! I apologise once again for causing everyone’s worries.”

Sina Entertainment: After finish the long period of practicing at a trainee, were you satisfied with the feeling after performing onstage for the first time?
Suho: After finishing the showcase, the feeling we had wasn’t “we’re finished”, but rather “we’re starting from now”. I don’t know how the other members feel, but personally I was not completely satisfied with the first stage. In the future I have to practice even harder, to present a more impressive stage.
While preparing for the birthday party, a cut with the cute maknaes EXO! They are thankful dongsaengs that did a pose especially for Naver Star Column. They are friends that work hard so I request a lot of encouragement. ^^ They are too kind!
This time I moved seats to see EXO dongsaengs. As thought, because it’s a chartered plane, we can freely move around and it’s nice.~ A cut that was taken while talking about various things! It seems like it was a serious conversation. Next to me, the member with the cute face is EXO-K Baekhyun.

I, who has talent in drawing
Am planning to type a love letter to everyone whom I love.
The end of fall is slowly becoming the cold winter. Everyone be sure to wear warm clothes^^
We met super popular group @EXO-M at the concert scene yesterday, they’re not bad you know, they’re all friends who really love hip hop dance, they’re all very friendly, the communication between Korean and Chinese was very cheerful, speaking of which, we, oldfish, have a lot of brothers from Korea, even if I say they’re not, they’re their choreography teachers! Yup! Let’s work hard together! Korean fans who like dancing, remember you definitely must come to our special group to learn dance, alright!
A season has passed after meeting EXO for the first time„
Then another season went by and we’re already in mid-October.
