2016 is going to be a good year for K-Pop fans because EXO, the popular idol boy group from SM Entertainment, is coming to Malaysia in March as part of their 2nd solo concert tour, “EXO PLANET #2 – The EXO’luXion”.

Local event organiser Star Planet confirmed rumours about the highly anticipated earlier on 18th December last year.

EXO is a Korean-Chinese boy group that made their debut with their first mini album, “MAMA”, in 2011. It originally consisted of 12 members separated into 2 subgroups, EXO-K and EXO-M, performing music in Korean and Mandarin, respectively. However, the group has been promoting with 9 members since June 2015.


EXO’s addictive music and charming looks have gained them devoted fans from across the globe. Over the past few years, they captured global attention with several hit singles such as “MAMA”, “Growl”, and “Overdose”. Their increasing popularity helped them sell over a million copies every time they release a new album.

Their first studio album, which was titled “XOXO”, proved successful as it won both “Disk Daesang” at the 28th Golden Disk Awards and “Album of the Year” at the 15th Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA). Over a million copies of the album were sold as well, making them the fastest-selling Korean artiste in 12 years.

In 2014, EXO held their first solo concert tour “EXO From. EXOPLANET #1 – THE LOST PLANET” after releasing their 2nd mini album “Overdose”.

Following the success of the tour, the group then announced their 2nd solo concert tour in 2015. Titled “EXO PLANET #2 – The EXO’luXion”, the tour first kicked off in Seoul in March 2015 on 5 separate dates.

They went on to perform at several sold-out shows in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand, and Japan.
