Filipino K-pop fans have been wanting to see EXO perform in Manila.
This year, Pinoy EXO-Ls (fan club name) will be able to see them once again as the all-male K-pop group is set to rock the SM Mall of Asia Arena on January 23 and 24, 2016.
EXO is currently composed of nine members namely: D.O., Chanyeol, Sehun, Kai, Chen, Lay, Suho, Baekhyun, and XiuMin.
