EXO (엑소) is a Korean-Chinese boy band, based in Seoul. Formed under the label of SM Entertainment in 2011, they debuted on April 8th, 2012 with 12 members, divided in two groups:
• EXO-K, consisting of Suho, Baekhyn, Chanyeol, D.O., Kai, and Sehun who promote in Korea;
• EXO-M, consisting of Xiumin, Luhan, Kris, Lay, Chen, and Tao, who promote in China.

Their debut single “MAMA”, released in Chinese and Korean, performs extremely well in both countries and the band flourishes. The band’s big success comes with the song “Growl”, from their first album “XOXO”, and the album sells over a million copies, making EXO the first group in Korea, sold this many physical albums for the last 12 years.

In 2014 EXO-M’s members Kris and Luhan sue SM Entertainment and leave the group, and in 2015 a third Chinese member – Tao, also leaves the company and respectively EXO, leaving Lay the only Chinese member and merging the two subgroups in one whole – EXO!

Despite the leaving of the three Chinese members, EXO move forward, selling over a million copies with each subsequent album. In 2017 is released their fourth studio album “The War”, which is the first one where Lay doesn’t take part in the promotions, because of political relations between South Korea and China.

At the end of December 2017 their gold album “Universe” comes out, and the song “Universe” itself lasts the longest in Melon’s chart – over 50 weeks.

In January 2018 is released EXO’s first official Japanese album “Countdown”, in which are included 10 songs. Only 9 days after the release it is certified as gold.

The group’s fifth studio album “Don’t Mess Up My Tempo” comes out on November 2, and reaches over a million sales days before the official release. So far (February 2019) the album has over 3 million physical sales, and EXO is the first group that has sold over 11 million physical copies of their albums.

The repackage album “Love Shot” comes out on December 13, in which the members provoke their fans as they appear sexy and drop a music video that will hold the fans awake for quite a long time.
