Idol group EXO was featured on Billboard’s list of “14 Artists to Watch in 2014,” which includes artists from all around the world. EXO was the only Asian artist named on the list.
Billboard said, “EXO looks positioned to be K-Pop’s next crossover phenom with an American fanbase brewing for the 12-member boy band. The video for Southern hip-hop-inspired ‘Growl’ was 2013’s third most viewed K-Pop music video in the U.S., after the internationally-recognized PSY and Girls’ Generation. They also snagged the fifth and ninth biggest-selling K-Pop tracks in America last year for “Growl” and dubstep-inspired “Wolf,” respectively.”
EXO recently attended the 28th Golden Disk Awards held on January 16 at Kyunghee University’s Hall of Peace, where they were awarded the daesang, the biggest award of the night.
