Popular boy group EXO will not take part in this week’s music programs due to their first asian tour. As EXO-K had been actively promoting their new song “Overdose” on Korean programs, the group will be absent on this week’s music shows.
A representative of SM Entertainment expressed, “EXO will not take part in this week’s ‘M! Countdown,’ and ‘Music Core.'” As KBS 2TV‘s ” Music Bank” roles on to it’s seventh week of postponement that started after the Sewol ferry tragedy, EXO will only be featured on SBS‘ “Inkigayo.” However, as the “Inkigayo” performance was recorded two weeks in advance, the members of EXO-K will not be present at the broadcast.
The first asian tour will start on June 1 and June 2 at Hong Kong. Afterwards, EXO plans to head to China, Thailand, Singapore, the Philippines, Indonesia, and Japan. Since the group will be busy with their weekend concerts, EXO-K’s promotional activities on music programs will be in consideration. SM Entertainment further elaborated, “We are thankful for the warm response towards ‘Overdose,’ and we will do our best to manage the group’s schedules between concerts and music shows.”
EXO held their first Korean concert from May 23 to May 25 to a sold out crowd of 42,000 fans. It is expected that this asian tour will be a time for EXO and their fans to become closer.
Good luck EXO!
