How EXO Captivated Millions Of Hearts While Solidifying The Hallyu Phenomenon

Define EXO—a charming group of boys gifted with the singing, dancing and entertaining prowess. They are not the ordinary boy band who would simply perform on the stage for their influence goes beyond it as evidenced by how their fans widely support them like in social media. How did they became a bigger phenomenon this 2015? Let us recall some of their highlights.

They are solidifying their position and popularity in the Hallyu wave early this year as they received more support following the release of their “December 2014. (The Winter’s Tale)” single last year, as reported by Korea Herald.

They made more massive waves in their fame as time passes by, particularly in March. That was the period in 2015 wherein their “Exodus” LP was released and the result was quite impressive. They landed in top local music charts and recorded a big number of sales. They are not showing any signs of stopping or slowing down.

In fact, their lead single of the Exodus album entitled “Call Me Baby” was a sensational hit to listeners that it even grabbed the no.1 spot on various music shows for 18 times.

The month of April became a witness to another achievement by EXO as they debut in a local online drama series entitled “Exo Next Door” broadcasted in the Naver’s TV Cast. It drew more than 10 M views, which is a first in the Web drama industry.

Few months after it, they released another album which was the repackaged “Love Me Right.” Starting June, it sold over a million units while their Exodus is still selling like a hotcake.

EXO’s last gift for the fans this year is their latest album with the tracks “Sing For You,” “Girl x Friend,” “Unfair,” “On the Snow,” and “Lightsaber.”

EXO proved their dominance this year and can create again another successful era.
