Exo, an Idol Group in International Spotlight
In 1997, there was a female idol group called Morning Musume in Japan.
Around 10 pretty girls sang many different songs in a group.
The group drew a huge popularity, but now is merely a part of history
with many new similar idol groups that have appeared since then.
However, there is a male idol group that still maintains such powerfulness.
It is Korea’s EXO, which made its debut in 2012.
(EXO is a name driven from ‘exoplanet’ that
means a superior planet in the solar system.)
Exo is a male idol group in international spotlight that is incomparable to other groups.
EXO successfully had its concert tour in major Asian cities
such as Hong Kong, Wu Han, Chongqing, Chengdu, Taipei, Shanghai, Singapore,
Guangzhou, Jakarta, Bangkok, Beijing, Fukuoka, Tokyo, and Osaka.
They drew about 320,000 audiences through 30 concerts in
17 major Asian cities for 7 months.
This means that at least 10,000 people attended the group’s one performance.
The musician that is sweeping Asia and
is in the focus of international attention is EXO.
