K pop boy group EXO made a fan signing appearance at the Nature Republic store in Shinchon. The boys of EXO are the official endorsement models for the brand. Police were called in to supervise the massive event.
Unsurprisingly, the SM Entertainment group attracted an immense crowd of 30,000 fans to the fan signing events, and police had to be called to supervise. EXO were able to sign some autographs, but they greeted the fans they weren't able to see personally.
'Nature Republic' stated, "Global idol group EXO successfully finished the fan signing event for the customers. We'll prepare events to show love to the customers in the future as well."
EXO is a Chinese-South Korean boy band based in Seoul. Formed by SM Entertainment in 2011, the group consists of twelve members separated into two subgroups, EXO-K and EXO-M, performing music in Korean and Mandarin, respectively. The group officially debuted on April 8, 2012, with Suho, Baekhyun, Chanyeol, D.O, Kai, and Sehun under the Korean subgroup while Xiumin, Luhan, Kris, Lay, Chen, and Tao under the Mandarin group.
The fastest-selling Korean artist in twelve years, Exo rose to fame with their breakthrough hit "Wolf" and solidified their success with "Growl," winning the Disk Daesang at the 28th Golden Disk Awards and the Album of the Year at the 15th Mnet Asian Music Awards for XOXO, making them the youngest boy band to do so. Exo has also set the record for being the highest-charting Korean male act on Billboard 200 with their third extended play, Overdose.
