Who are EXO? Get to know the K-Pop boyband who are as big as One Direction

We know you directioners are totally missing your 1D boys in your life while they’re off on their extended hiatus.


So we at Maximum POP! have been doing our best to find your new fave and help fill that missing void. And now we think we’ve found the perfect solution to your boyband-shaped hole in the heart.


Meet… EXO!


This super cool K-Pop boyband were brought together S.M. Entertainment, who are known for giving us acts such as BoA, Girls Generation and f(x); all names you’ll be familiar with if you’re already into the K-Pop sound.


They’ve already got One Direction beat in terms of band members; forget four, they’ve got NINE members. NINE. In fact, they used to have 12 but two members decided to leave in 2014 and 2015.

EXO are a really special group in that they actually have two smaller groups inside the main group, to satisfy their various fan bases across different regions and acknowledge their varying background. EXO-K sing in Korean while EXO-M sing in Mandarin. Check out the videos for one of their biggest hits ‘Growl’.

In February 2016, EXO embarked on their US tour while the second single from their third album ‘Ex’Act’ landed in the Billboard World Digital Songs Chart at number one. Check out the video for ‘Monster’ below:
