The 19th teaser starred by KAI (again!!! >.<) on February 16th 2012.

Then, the rapper of EXO-K takes the attention on February 22th 2012 in the 20th teaser. The teaser song titled El Dorado. El Dorado means golden one, the name of a Muisca tribal chief who covered himself with gold dust and, as an initiation rite, dived into a highland lake. Later it became the name of a legendary “Lost City of Gold” that has fascinated many explorers since the days of the Spanish Conquistadors. Though many have searched for years on end to find this city of gold, no evidence of such a place has been found.

But, Chanyeol bewitched us with his own gold-alike face. The rhythm of a song, the melody, even though we haven’t know the legendary, we feel the different atmosphere from another teasers. We have explored the treasure in this teaser.

A week later, “Baby Don’t Cry,” 21st teaser of KAI released on February 28th 2012.

SM Entertainment moved fast, on February 29th, teaser of main dancer on EXO-M and lead dancer on EXO-K, LAY and Sehun, out of the box.

Three days straight, the teasers keep appeared. On March 1st 2012 is KAI turn. Astonished, because on the last minutes, another EXO member, whether K or M danced along with KAI. The smooth move and gentle music spell on viewers.

And then, 8 March 2012 is a big day for EXO fans. Again, they released music video, “History.” Unlike “What Is Love” that showed the singing ability, this MV focused on dance ability of each members, not only lead or main dancer. We can see how cohesive is their move with harmony and rhythm. Just like the name of this MV, EXO made the real history.

Check this out. EXO-K. EXO-M.

Some rumors appeared when EXO came to K-Pop showbiz. It said that EXO created to replace Super Junior. This rumor is totally hoax. No matter how long Super Junior will take a rest from public, they won’t disappoint their fans. EXO made because they are prepared since several years ago. It said SM Entertainment will create M-1. One of the members are SM The Ballad member, Jino. The facts, SM changed their mind for some reasons. Maybe this is what we called company strategy, Jino will appear in bigger opportunity.

Although there are still so many rumors which are not cleared yet, EXO made a history. EXO with their extraordinary talent refreh K-Pop showbiz. We don’t have to leave our previous idols, they have their own space. All we have to do is enjoy K-Pop as long as we can. Is bashing really necessary when we know there is something more important to do?
