Transcript of EXO
The South Korean Monster Rookie Group
Who is EXO?
They are a twelve member group which is divided into two sub-groups, EXO-K is the Korean sub-group and EXO-M is the Mandarin/Chinese sub-group, each consisting of exactly 6 members. They became an official group back in April 8 2012. Their sign label, SMTOWN, had promoted them since December 22 2011 with a teaser of their song "My Lady" which then is released in 2013 in their album. The teasers released consisted of 23 in which the members of the group were slowly revealed. Demonstrating their dancing and singing skills. They are supposed to be from outer space, in other words from EXO Planet.
Debut Song | MAMA
Their dance styles are mainly influenced by Michael Jackson as their choreographer was one of Michael Jackson's backup dancers and Tony Testa is another one. Including three Korean choreographers.
For their main singing influences: Michael Jackson, The Journey, Bruno Mars, Maroon 5, Adam Lambert, BOYZ II MEN and Justin Timberlake.
Miracles in December
Meaning Behind MAMA
"MAMA" means "Your Majesty" in Korean which is what the Queen was called back in the days but the real meaning behind the song is about the grievances and complains people have nowadays about world problems such as how ungrateful, untrustworthy and disrespectful people have became.
In the music video, there are a lot of symbols which some will think are part of the Illuminati since they don't know much about the Asian mythology and history. In the ancient times, the King was known as the Dragon/Sun and the Queen as the Phoenix/Moon, they could only meet each other every eclipse that happened. Which is why the group also says "We Are ONE!" whenever they meet and introduce themselves.
They won exactly 21 awards, all ranging from Best Rookie Group to Best Single to Best Music Video to Best Single of 2012 to Group Popularity, Best Selling Albums and Best Dressed. They won four awards for their group concept which is about Supernatural Powers and the fact that they are from "outer space".
They had released two different albums (XOXO & Growl - Repackage) including the same songs but different title tracks with the addition of two new songs in the repackage album. In South Korean music shows they had a total of 14 consecutive wins with their repackage album's title track, Growl, and 4 consecutive wins with the title track for XOXO, Wolf.
Dec. '13 - February '14
They had released a winter album called "Miracles In December" which included exactly six songs. They had exactly seven consecutive wins with the title track of the album and won many awards which included best concept and dance like in their first year as artists.
