Exo subunits win top honors



Exo’s musical career reached a peak last week, according to local media, with the boy band ranking No. 1 on both Chinese and Korean live music programs.

Exo-K, a Korean subunit of the band, took first place on MBC’s music program “Show! Music Core” on Saturday for “Overdose,” the lead track on their latest mini-album. They also received top honors Thursday on Mnet’s “M! Countdown.”

On Saturday, Exo-M, the Chinese subunit, received first prize on the Chinese music-ranking program “Global Chinese Music,” which is broadcast through local channel CCTV.

This is the first time the two subunits have received top honors simultaneously for the same song.

Last week, Kris, one of the members of Exo-M, filed a lawsuit against his agency, SM Entertainment, to nullify his contract. The Chinese sub-group will continue with their upcoming schedule with the band’s remaining five members.
