EXO‘s fifth world tour,”EXO PLANET #5 – EXplOration – in Japan“, opened the Japan leg of the tour on October 11 at Merine Messe Fukuoka. Their most recent performance was on October 22 and 23 at the Yokohama Arena, attracting a lot of fans. EXO is not only popular in Korea and Japan, but boasts worldwide popularity that has kept them at the forefront since their debut.
Their long-awaited Japan leg of the tour was held and members cheerfully greeted fans, who they haven’t seen in a year and a half, by saying: “It’s been a long time! Everyone, did you want to meet us and hear our voices?”
Additionally, the physical release of their original new Japanese song “BIRD” will be released on November 4 with a mu-mo limited edition at Marine Messe Fukuoka.
The new song “BIRD” is a medium number with a clear sound and message from EXO for the future and thoughts for their fans. When it was pre-delivered to Japanese fans on October 10, ahead of the Japan leg of the tour, social networking sites were lit up with praise for the group and the song. Comments from netizens included, “a refreshing song with beautiful singing”, “the lyrics are really good”, and “thank you for singing for Japanese fans!”
Japanese EXO-L couldn’t get enough of their favorite group and were left, quite understandably, feeling totally enchanted and mesmerized by the men of EXO.
EXO’s Yokohama Arena performance will be broadcast on WOWOW Japan on December 30.
