Members: Sehun, Suho, Kai, Chanyeol, Kris, Lay, Xiumin, DO, Chen, Baekhyun, Luhan, Tao – 2013


It took more than a year to create the final line-up. In April 2011, the team would have included only 7 members, and their names were also uncertain. The rumors were finally dispelled by SM CEO Lee Soo Man, who revealed his future plans for EXO.

The 12-member boy band will be divided into two sub-units: EXO-K and EXO-M. While the members of EXO-K sing in Korean, the members representing M perform the same songs in Mandarin, and their goal is to break into the Chinese market effectively.



By December 2011, it was decided who the debut members of the team would be, then the first teaser of the line-up (promotional video) was released, and then the members were introduced one by one. They also explained the choice of the team name EXO, which comes from the term ‘ exoplanet ‘, which symbolizes an alien, unknown planet outside the solar system, thus hinting that the team is ready to amaze the inhabitants of Earth.


Chen was introduced as the fourth member. However, the official debut of the team had to be waited for no less than 100 days, but even during this time, those interested in the team did not let their attention wane. Because on January 30, 2012, they released a prologue song and music video called What is Love. The song was released in both K and M versions. While the M version was sung by Chen and Luhan, the K version featured the voices of DO and Baekhyun. Not long after, on March 8, 2012, they came back into the public consciousness with their song History.

This time, all 12 members could play their part in both the song and video, rapping, singing or dancing. On the first day of April, they held their first showcase in China, including Beijing, and on the 6th in Seoul, they performed several of their songs as a group, and also shared various details about their upcoming debut music video.

The next day, on April 7th, EXO made their official debut with their song called MAMA. The clip made for it is more than 6 minutes long, in which the concept built around the team is explained in detail thanks to an English-speaking narrator. In the clip, it became visible which member has which supernatural ability. Chen’s superpower is lightning. After the video clips, the arrival of the first mini-album didn’t have to wait long either, as their debut mini-album MAMA hit the shelves on the 8th, and EXO split into K and M and began a series of promotions in South Korea, and in China.

The boys’ debut was a huge success, as evidenced by the fact that EXO-M’s album reached first place on Chinese online retailers and music charts 1 day after its release, second on China’s Sina Album Chart, and fifth on South Korea’s Gaon Album Chart and peaked at number 12 on the Billboard World Albums Chart, while EXO-K’s release peaked at number one on the Gaon Album Chart and number eight on the Billboard World Albums Chart.

And their individual successes continued, strengthening the team as a whole, as a result of which they were able to receive the award for the best new Asian artist group at the 2012 MAMA in November 2012, as well as individually bagging 1 award each at other award ceremonies.

In the coming period, there were a lot of speculations and false dates about EXO’s comeback, which fans couldn’t wait for, even leaked demo songs were uploaded to the world wide web, and finally, on June 3, 2013, EXO’s comeback happened, not just by any means: with their first full studio album entitled XOXO.

There was a Kiss and a Hug version of this: the first was the Korean version, the second was the Chinese version, and this time the team did not separate, but together, the twelve of them did the promotions with the album’s lead song, Wolf, with which they already succeeded on music TV also reach the first place in shows.

For the first time on the Music Bank show, June 14. In view of the great success, a repackaged version of the album was also released, on which additional new songs could be heard, one of which was the lead song of the album, Growl. The music video was released on the first of August, and the repackaged album was released on the 5th. Promotions were also held jointly with Growl, and this song of theirs became the group’s most successful song, with which they collected the most awards so far.

The boys didn’t rest much in the midst of the awards, because they planned to release a special album, which finally arrived in the form of a Christmas album on December 9, it was Miracles In December, for the ballad-style title track, a sadder but festive music video was shot. This song was only performed and promoted on music shows by Baekhyun, Chen, Luhan, and DO, but there was another song, Christmas Day , that they all performed. With Miracles In December, they managed to win an award for the first time on December 14 in the Music Core show.


Their next comeback was due on April 15, 2014, when their second mini-album, Overdose , was released, which they started promoting again by splitting into K and M, and also tried a new style. A music video was shot for the song, in Chinese and Korean versions.

However, the promotion was interrupted by an unexpected and even sadder event, as the leader of EXO-M, Kris, decided to leave the group, and the reason for the grievance, according to him, was that SM repeatedly did not pay him or release him to decide what kind of individual work he wants to do outside of EXO’s activities.

His exit was also unfortunate, as EXO was holding its first solo concert tour, EXO From EXOPLANET: The Lost Planet, which was planned for 12 members, so the program plan, vocal parts and choreography had to be changed. Kris has since settled with his former employer and is hugely popular in China.

On August 5th, the name of EXO’s fan club was revealed, which became EXO-L. The choice of name was explained by the fact that L is between K and M in the abc and also symbolizes the word ‘Love’.

————————————————– ————————————————– ————————————————– LUHAN’S LEAVING FROM THE TEAM

On October 10, more shocking events took place around EXO’s house, because shortly after Kris’s departure, Luhan also decided to leave the team, but he initially cited health problems, so EXO continued to operate with 10 members, including EXO- M now with four. In February 2015, SM stated on behalf of Kris and Luhan, who in the meantime started their solo work in China, that they were operating illegally, as they had not yet fully terminated their contract, so it is as if they were still working under the name of SM, therefore the company initiated proceedings in the case . Since then, the parties have managed to reach an agreement.

In January, due to the great success, EXO started their second concert tour called EXO From EXOPLANET: The EXO’luXion, which counted five venues and more than 1.2 million fans. Not long after, it was announced that EXO would return, which arrived on March 30th with their second full-length studio album, Exodus, which they will be promoting again together as a 10-member group.

The appearance was preceded by individual teasers about the members, in which the supernatural abilities of the members were discussed again, and each of them appeared in different parts of the world. The leading song from the album was Call Me Baby, for which the music video was released on the 31st, of which the Korean version was seen by 4 million people and the Chinese version by 2 million people within 24 hours on the biggest video sharing site. With Call Me Baby, they managed to win the first prize on the M! Countdown show on April 9.
Their web drama EXO Next Door also concluded its final episode on May 28, which aired for 16 episodes since April 9.

————————————————– ————————————————– ————————————————– TAO’S SEPARATION FROM THE TEAM

On April 22, Tao’s father released a letter to the public through his Weibo account, expressing his outrage at the company and expressing his fatherly concerns. At the time of writing the letter, Tao was trying to recover from leg injuries, which unfortunately was not the first time. The father also asked his son to leave the team, believing that his health and family are more important than his career. On the 23rd, SM Entertainment responded to the letter. Tao later announced that he would like to leave both the band and the company.

The team is considered by many to be the uncrowned vocal king of the k-pop genre, and its three lead singers DO, Chen and Baekhyun have already received many professional and media recognitions.
Starting in 2013, Exo regularly releases special winter-themed EPs that fall in December each year. These EPs feature a lot of classic, emotional ballads, which contrasts with most of the songs on the group’s studio albums.

In 2017, Billboard recognized their song Universe, saying, “Swinging, emotional vocals courtesy of Exo.” The mentioned song is a “hitting” ballad that fairly presents the talents of the members. The band has collaborated more than once with both veteran and foreign producers, to whom they owe many catchy hits. Here are some examples: Kenzie, Dean, LDN Noise, The Underdogs and MARZ Music are also on the list.

Many Exo songs – especially the singles – are mixed with pop, hip-hop, R&B genres supplemented with some electronic dance sounds, such as house, trap and synth-pop. They are created so that the producers take into account the stage abilities of the team. In the words of producer Harvey Mason Jr., “We listen to their material and try to take it one step further. We try and do things that are new, original, but still sound Exo. They can sing, dance, have explosive energy… it’s like when a painter uses all the colors for his creation.”

At the beginning of their career, Billboard described their music as: “Totally inspired by the sound of the 1990s and 2000s…with bigger beats, more rap and dance parts.”
In 2016, the group continued in a different sound direction, showing a much more mature and darker side with their third studio album, Ex’Act. The disc represents an electronic dance style, such as house, synth-pop. Their fourth studio album, The War, deepened the group’s desire to experiment in the direction of trap music. With their hit Ko Ko Bop, they received much critical acclaim for their hybridization of reggae basics with elements of heavy electronic breaks.


At the beginning of their career, the group received several criticisms, as they did not do their part in writing the lyrics and in the production work. In 2015, however, their first song was released, for which none of the above is true, because the lyrics of their song Promise were written by Chanyeol, Chen and Lay. The song is considered special among both the fans and the members of the team, since with this composition they thanked the fans who stood by them even after the separation of the three Chinese members.  Since then, several of their songs have been released where they either helped as a producer or a lyricist, some examples of which are: Heaven, She’s Dreaming  from their third studio album, their special single Lightsaber  or known from the 2017  disc Ko Ko Bop .

In 2017, Chanyeol talked about Chill ‘s composition in an interview with Billboard . According to him, he worked on an empty track without demo text, so the process was much more natural for him. In the same interview, Chen commented on their hit Ko Ko Bop , saying: We wrote the lyrics separately and then worked together to put the parts together. I don’t feel like I have any regrets about the song as we managed to achieve the best possible result. Chen is also credited with the song Lights Out , from their Universe EP. Lay is also responsible for songwriting and production on his solo albums. Chanyeol also wrote the lyrics for Gravity and With You .  

The team has been praised numerous times for their synchronized choreography and carefully crafted stage performances. Already at the beginning of their career, they worked with famous choreographers such as Tony Testa and Nicholas Bass, to whom the Wolf and Growl choreos are  due. Recently, they have been working together with Kim Tae Woo (Kasper).

Dazed magazine recognized the group’s seamless, hair-to-the-eye choreography, adding that it would elevate them to the forefront of pop domination. Water, rain and a shallow pool are a recurring stage element on the group’s world tours. According to Cleo magazine, Exo’s “winning recipe” is to incorporate water into the choreography, and during the performance of their songs White Noise and Lightsaber, they created a waterfall, which caused the members to get completely drenched. Yahoo wrote about it like this:  during one segment, the boys stood on a raised hexagonal stage (shaped like the band’s logo) and danced sensually while water poured down on them from above.
