EXO and Kangta were counted among the winners at China's Asian Idol Awards on July 28.

At the awards ceremony held in Bejing on Sunday, Kangta took home the honor for 2013 Overseas Entertainer and EXO was awarded the 2013 Asia Popular Group Award.

This year marked the second annual Asian Idol Awards in China and serves to honor entertainers who have had a significant impact on Asian pop culture over the past year.

At the end of the event, EXO amazed the audience of 8,000 with a performance of their hit songs "MAMA" and "Wolf."

The twelve-member boy band also drew a lot of attention from Chinese fans outside of the venue as well as at the airport for their arrival in Beijing on Sunday morning.

EXO is comprised of two six-member groups, EXO-K and EXO-M who specialize in singing in Korean and Mandarin respectively. Although still relatively new to the music industry, their popularity seems to increase daily and their fanbase is extensive.

Kangta is a popular R&B solo singer who initially rose to fame in the 1990's as the leader of popular first-generation idol group H.O.T.

In 2010 he made his official Chinese debut with the mini-album Rest in the Seven Tunes and the title track "Love, Frequency."

Since then, Kangta has frequently performed and promoted in China, helping to secure a huge fan-following in the country.

Meanwhile, the veteran singer has been appearing on the reality show I Live Alone, giving fans a glimpse into his personal life.

EXO is preparing to release a repackaged version of their most recent release XOXO on August 5 along with a new single, "Growl."
