Group EXO celebrated its 10th anniversary.

EXO, which debuted on April 8, 2012, has shown differentiated music and performances over the past decade, showing brilliant performances like the "K-POP King." Our debut song "MAMA", "Wolf", "Growl", "Overdose", "CALL ME BABY", "LOVE ME RIGHT", "Monster", "Lotto", "Koppottob", "Koppotbob", etc.

Since its debut, EXO has attracted attention by introducing differentiated identities and contents based on its unique worldview with different superpowers. EXO continued its storytelling of the worldview through various contents such as music, music videos, and performances, and EXO's success left an impact so strong that the artist's worldview became common in the music industry.

In addition, EXO is the main character who reopened the era of 1 million album sales by becoming the first million seller with its first full-length album "XOXO (Kiss & Hug)" released in 2013. With the first achievement in 12 years in the music industry, which was stagnant due to the recession in the music industry at the time, the birth of a new million seller was a catalyst to revitalize the industry.

Starting with the first full-length album, EXO has surpassed 1 million copies of five consecutive full-length albums, including the second full-length album "EXODUS," the third full-length album "EX'ACT," the fourth full-length album "THE WAR," and the fifth full-length album "DON'T MESS UP MY TEMPO." The special album "DON'T FIGHT THE FEELING" released last year also sold more than 1.08 million copies a week after its release, becoming the sixth million seller in his career and showing unwavering power. He became the first singer to debut since 2000, setting a milestone of achieving 10 million cumulative sales of albums in Korea.

EXO won the Rookie of the Year award at various year-end music awards in its first year, followed by the 2013 Melon Music Awards (MMA) and the 2013 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) Album of the Year award the following year. In particular, MAMA continued its popularity at the top of the list, winning the Grand Prize for the first five consecutive years as a Korean singer from 2013 to 2017, and being listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most winners.

In addition, EXO attended the closing ceremony of the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics as a Korean representative singer, and EXO's hit song "Power" was used as ground music in the semifinals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia and proved Korea's global status by being selected for the first time.

Meanwhile, EXO will hold the "2022 Debut Anniversary Fan Event: EXO" at 7 p.m. on the 9th at Jamsil Indoor Gymnasium in Seoul to commemorate the 10th anniversary of its debut. The site is expected to be broadcast live online simultaneously through Beyond LIVE's global platform and receive enthusiastic responses from global fans.
