Oh my! Word on the street is that EXO (엑소) is coming to Malaysia again.

EXO-Ls (as EXO’s fans are lovingly known) went into a frenzy when local concert organiser Star Planet (星艺娱乐) shared a black-and-white photo of a 9-member group on their Facebook page yesterday (14th December). In the caption, they wrote, “Coming up soon in 2017! Guess who is next on stage.”

Though the photo did not reveal the faces of the members, fans were quick to jump into the conclusion that the group in the picture is EXO. Fans are also speculating that the boys will be holding their 3rd world tour, “EXO PLANET #3 The EXO’rDIUM”, in Malaysia next year as they just embarked on the tour in July 2016.


This is not the first time Star Planet brought EXO to town. Earlier this year, the K-Pop idol boy group held their “EXO PLANET #2 The EXO’LuXion World Tour” at Stadium Merdeka in Kuala Lumpur. Also organised by Star Planet, the one-night only event attracted 14,000 EXO-Ls from Indonesia, China, Singapore, and Thailand.

Sorry, EXO-Ls, we have bad news for you.

Dreammaker Entertainment, the promoter for EXO’s “EXO PLANET #3 The EXO’rDIUM” tour, has confirmed that Lay (full name Zhang Yixing) won’t be attending the Malaysian leg of the concert. Aside from Malaysia, the singer will also be skipping the Singaporean and North American shows due to “other commitments”.

Don’t worry though, the show will still go on with the other 8 members!
