EXO's first solo concert, 'EXO FROM. EXOPLANET #1-THE LOST PLANET', will be held on May 23-25 in Seoul and has been produced by celebrity favorite Tony Testa.
Tony Testa has worked with big names including Britney Spears, Janet Jackson and various other artists.
Within the K-Pop industry, he has worked with TVXQ and SHINee. This isn't his first time working with EXO as he's choreographed various other performances for the group in the past.
This concert is definitely one of the most highly anticipated by fans from all over the world because it is EXO's first solo concert since their debut. The group is expected to showcase an upgraded performance as they will be the sole performers receiving the spotlight this time.
EXO is currently busy promoting their new mini album in both Korea and China.
The demand for "Overdose" has been exploding internationally.
Since its release on May 7, the idol group's second mini album has topped the daily and weekly album sales charts on various sites including Hanteo, Hot Tracks, Sinnara Records and Yes24, according to Yahoo Celebrity Philippines.
On the Hanteo Chart, the album sold over 230,000 copies in just five days.
Outside of Korea, the album has ranked number one on Taiwan's album sales site as well as Five Music's Korean-Japanese chart for the first week of May.
During their appearance on "Entertainment Relay" on May 10, the members of EXO explained the meaning behind "Overdose" while they charmed the audience with stories about one another.
"Our title track 'Overdose' is about fans and us being hooked on each other and that love so we expressed that 'overdose' with a heart," explained Kay and Lay, according to Allkpop.
Chanyeol stated, "We hope that 'Overdose' can also sell one million copies."
The group also joked that Tao is the crybaby of the group, which forced Tao to explain why he began crying during the group's fan meeting in Japan.
"The fans were holding up glow sticks and when the lights turned off, I was very touched," stated the idol member.
EXO also shared that due to the large number of members within the group, there have been incidents when one of them would get left out in the shuffle of all the transitions they need to make as a team.
"Since we have a lot of members, if we don't check, we always accidentally leave one member behind. We had a lot of such incidents," stated Kai.
Chanyeol added, "Yesterday, we finished practice and returned to our dorm but we got contacted by him. He asked 'Where are all the members?' It turns out he was at the agency headquarters by himself."
