EXO Introduction

For most people who still remember the 1990’s, boy bands were on top of the charts and all over our bedroom walls. N’SYNC and Back Street Boys were the two biggest boy bands to come out in the 1990’s. They had the perfect formula; matching outfits, crazy hair, good looks, adoring fans, and killer vocal range. Girls love them and guys wanted to be them. If anyone out there is thinking that those days are long behind us, think again.

There is a recent pop boy band group from Seoul, South Korea, stealing girls’ hearts and the music pop charts and their name is EXO. They were created in 2011 by S.M. Entertainment and are made up by twelve members.

EXO is comprised in two sub groups, EXO-K and EXO-M, which performs music in Korean and Mandarin. This huge group has been growing in popularity since the release of their debut album in 2012 titled, “Mama” and their second hit album, “XOXO” which was released in 2013. They have won over forty music awards, including MTV Europe Music Award for Best Korean Act, World Music Award for Best Selling Korean Artist, and the youngest act to win Album of the Year at the Mnet Asian Music in 2013.

Going Out Of This World With EXO

EXO is revolving Korean music scene

The music scene has seen many bold, risky, and wild fashions over the years. With any music act, whether it’s regarding their music or style, it’s all about collaboration, timing, and execution. What’s interesting about EXO is that their name is taken for the word exoplanet, leaving people to believe that they could be “out of this world”. EXO is revolving around the Korean music scene, making other countries stand and take notice.

After all, they do have worldwide success with a sound that is R&B pop for screaming fan girls to enjoy. Many of their group photo shoots are styled in suits, ties, sneakers, and snapbacks. While other times they are dressed casually in jeans and white t-shits with their brand name as their logo. Their style may be more form-fitting and polished up, but they show a sense of individualism with each member, making it hard to pick just one cute member of EXO.

How To Wear- KPOP

Showing individualism can be a slippery slope when you’re in a pop boy band. However, there isn’t a single member in the boy band that looks physically like the other. When you see their group photo shoots, they always mix up the location, setting, and details, giving each member their moment to shine and stand out.

This is really the most “out of this world” way of thinking because they are able to provide their fans some range of personality; to be goofy, serious, and showing attraction to girls, making their hearts melt on any given hot summer day. Something like this hasn’t been successfully done in quite some time in the music industry. Their style speaks to a younger, preteen generation for Koreans.

For example, you can find photos of EXO wearing blue suits, red ties, and black sneakers. But their hair style and faces are not identical, which makes them quite unique for a group so young to the music business. EXO’s style is bound to evolve and take on different forms as the years go by, but their upbeat dance music will sure to leave their fans wanting more of what’s to come.

Elizabeth likes to follow Korean bands arena of glamor, style and beauty. She is also recently introduced to the Jpop, anime and Asian drama. She is fascinated by the versatility of the oriental pop culture.
