Initially, SM Entertainment formed the group in 2011, and the group debuted in 2012. The SM Entertainment CEO, Lee Soo-man, revealed his plans to debut a new boy band in 2011, and later, he said that the group would be divided, as it would be parted among to sub-groups. Both groups would promote the same music simultaneously. Both groups were instructed to perform in separate countries as one would perform in China, and another would perform in South Korea. They would perform songs both in Korean and Mandarin. After many changes, the group’s final name was kept Exo, and it was taken from the word ‘exoplanet.’

Suho was first to join the group who is now Exo-K’s leader. Later, Kai, Chanyeol, Sehun, and the last member was a trainee named Baekhyun, who joined in 2011. Talking of the Chinese group, Kris auditioned in 2008, then joined Lay. Then it was Xiumin, Luhan, Tao, and Chen.

Both groups debuted with the single “Mama” on 8th April 2012 and later EP Mama, which was released on 9th April.


The two subgroups later promoted their first album separately as the Korean group then performed their single in the South Korean music program The Music Trend, whereas the Exo-M performed on the Top Chinese Music Awards in Shenzen. All this happened on the same day.

The group saw significant success in 2016 as Exo’s third studio album Ex’Act and its singles, “Lucky One” and “Monster,” were released on June 9, 2016, and pre-orders of the album exceeded 660,000 copies.

Their 4th album received much more success as “The War” got 807,235 pre-orders.

Group saw another major success when its K-pop song “Power” became the first K-pop song to play at The Dubai Fountain at Burj Khalifa Lake, Dubai. The group traveled to Dubai to view the song’s first showing. In 2018 another record was surpassed by the group as Exo’s sixth studio album ‘Don’t Mess Up My Tempo’ received record-breaking 1,104,617 pre-orders and later it sold 1,179,997 copies by November 30.

  1. Yes. I Salute for this great message. That’s why I deeply fell in love in #EXO’s even I meet them in 2016 first I saw a mv on you tube a music video of monster and wolf. From the I search from the started. And every activity of the group I looking at it. And I watched them movies and kdrama one by one. I loved them all even they separated and leave them one by one like #EXOakris, #EXOLUHaN, #EXOTAO and last #EXOLays. But even they leaved the group members got connected for each other and helping and support each other for there activities. And they make sure that they support the others member. That’s why #EXO’s expired #EXOL a lot. We love ❤️ you guys and we miss you a lot… Hoping the #EXO12 gathered again if possible. #weareone

  2. I am super proud of their achievements and many more to come.. I am super proud of myself too for liking them that much.. I am new to this fandom but it’s like I’ve known them for a long time..I believe their talents will come a long way… Fighting

  3. You got drippin’ bars, you got the sauce, you on , exo on fleek. I started knowing you this year with your track called “for life” and am loving it. Then i went on to listen your old tracks and yhey are well sang, you voices are so amazing i wish if one day you coulda shoulda once host a show in africa Zimbabwe

  4. You got dripping bars , men on fleek, you are leading in the race, keep the fire burning. I like your track called for life and am loving it. Can you be the voice of the voiceless #zimbabweanlivesmatters on insta or Twitter even on YouTube

  5. lol don’t know what I’m doing here hahahaha I’m so depressed cause I miss seeing them complete… I’ll just focus on my career so I can spend millions for exo…

  6. In the “INCEPTION” text D.O. name found missing.

  7. I’m confused at how EXO can be said to have 1 billion dollars. If you take 8 members and multiply the amounts listed as their individual wealth – it is no where near 1 billion. It isn’t even 100 million.

    • Lol babe that’s not their net worth they’re not worth more than SM entertainment itself I don’t know where they got these numbers from SM entertainment is worth $100 million so it’s no way XL alone could be worth 1 billion

  8. How are you computing net worth for a group though? Their individual net worths when added up don’t even come close to 1B dollars. How are they even richer than Hanson?

  9. U said Baekhyun only net worth 8 million, when other sources says his got the most higher Net Worth of 15M. U did not not count his EXO-CBX and his Super M and his solo’s sales for Delight/Candy sold more than 1million copies the same thing with his Bambi mini album his second 1million seller? His also a model and ambassador of Burberry and Tirtir Cosmetics, besides his fashion designer of Privee. He also has more OST songs, collab and Station, even Suho mentioned its Baekhyun is the most richest in EXO, but Baekhyun says “he is poor,” lol!

  10. Exo net worth isn’t based on their net worth from their SM only net worth, duh! Exo are actors, models, has many collab, OCT songs, and most of them are soloist/vocalist, besides of their royalties, CFL or advertisements or they endorse or endoresement. Exo, mostly got outside gigs Exo actually besides of being models, most of them were brand name ambassadors. Exo has 2 sub units;Exo-CBS and exo-SC. Most of the members are soloist/vocalist and successful to this. Plus, u also forget that they make many tour concrts, with their EXO Planet $1-#5. They have those concerts every year for those concerts mail to in Asian countries, why they don’t have enough for the requests touted or concerts in other continents like;Europe, Latin America, Africa and in the U. S. A, or even in other Asian countries as Middle East. What more if they have those world tour? They also has those extra concerts like: Octofest, and others. So, u can’t just count their individually net worth. And no, those going to their SMITH company already not included. Their individual Net Worth only from their album and other recording or songs. Exo also has many guesting in the shows, radio, etc. Their individual Net Worth is just their bunos!
