We are one, we are EXO!

"We may be separated into two groups, but really, we are one big family."

EXO (Korean: 엑소) is a South Korean-Chinese boy band who debuted under SM Entertainment on April 8, 2012, after 23 teasers. They are split into two sub-units, EXO-M and EXO-K, who promote in China and South Korea, respectively.

The group is composed of 11 members from South Korea and China. Namely, Xiumin, Lu Han, Suho, Lay, Baekhyun, Chen, Chanyeol, D.O, Tao, Kai, and Sehun. Member Kris is currently inactive due to his filing of a lawsuit to terminate his contract, although it is expected he will be leaving. There was debate about the group disbanding for a while, but members have reassured their fans that they will continue on.

The group's two albums, the 2012 debut EP Mama and the 2013 comeback studio album XOXO, were major commercial successes, selling over 1.5 million units in total worldwide. The group was also named the Best Korean/Japanese Act at the MTV EMA Awards.
