EXO-Ls have proven themselves time and again to be one of the most dedicated fandoms in the world of K-pop and their latest feat continues to build on their reputation. EXO fans managed to sell out the 72,000 seater Jamsil Stadium for EXO's encore concert EXORDIUM in less than an hour.

According to a report by SBS Pop Asia, this makes EXO the youngest K-pop group to hold their concert at the Jamsil Olympic Stadium and the youngest act to sell out the venue. This does not even factor in the fact that all 72,000 tickets for the venue sold out in the space of a few minutes.

The first night of the encore concerts on May 27 has already sold out in mere minutes but it is expected that the second night of the concert on May 28 will sell out as well because of EXO's strong fanbase. According to a report by Soompi,  EXO is no stranger to "blood ticketing" which means that thr group can sell out stadiums in a matterof minutes because of strong fan clamor for their performances.

With the recent feat of selling out the Jamsil Olympic stadium, EXO joins the ranks of local artists Seo Taji and Boys, SECHKIES, god who have similarly sold out the stadium which is not often booked for performances due to the huge venue. International acts like Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Metallica, Michael Jackson, and Lady Gaga.have similarly performed in the Jamsil Olympic Stadium.

Having a sold out concert seems to be the norm for the five year old K-pop group, which recently celebrated their debut anniversary with worldwide activities initiated by their fans. EXO-Ls from around the world pooled their funds to feature EXO-Ls anniversary in 11 billboards in New York's Times Square which cost the fandom some $1-$4 million.

Chinese fans also bought an estate in Scotland's Highlands along with a lordship for EXO maknae Sehun. The property which was purchased under his name earned him the title of Lord Oh Sehun of Glencoe, reported Kpopstarz.
