by Adrian Besley



Barnes and Noble Indiebound
A K-pop band like no other, EXO has been dominating charts and stealing hearts since they debuted in 2012. For the first time, this unofficial biography tells their extraordinary story.
EXO records their songs in Korean, Mandarin, and Japanese, and their music videos clock up hundreds of millions of views from fans. And when this Korean-Chinese band closed the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea, a global audience watched, captivated by their performance. No wonder Dazed magazine called them the “biggest Korean boy band in the world.” Extensively researched, this first-ever unofficial biography looks at each of the nine current members—Suho, Xiumin, Lay, Baekhyun, C hen, C hanyeol, D.O., Kai, and Sehun—as well as previous members Luhan, Kris, and Tao, and the history of the group as a whole. It delves into what makes EXO stand out from the K-pop crowd, as well as their incredible fan base, EXO-L. Accessible and upbeat, this book is a must-have for everyone who loves this musical sensation. 

A former BBC copywriter, Adrian Besley is the author of many successful nonfiction titles, including the bestselling BTS: Icons of K-Pop.
