The six Chinese members of SM’s new group, EXO-M, have been keeping busy lately. Earlier this month, EXO-M finished up their concert in Taiwan and then the group was in attendance for stops on the SMTOWN Live World Tour. During this time they were somehow able to participate in various photo shoots. They continue to lead the way for the Hallyu Wave in China with one of the shoots in particular, which was for the June issue of the Chinese magazine, “The Journal of Contemporary Pop Music.”
Earlier, the group’s official Weibo made an announcement to fans about their upcoming magazine appearance. With the announcement, a few teaser photos were released, in which the six members looked charming in their black suits.
