EXO has been selected as ‘2014 Korean Masterpiece Most Loved by Chinese People.’
According to SM Entertainment on October 23, EXO was the only entertainer that was named as ‘2014 Korean Masterpiece Most Loved by Chinese People,’ which was a poll done by Korean Marketing Association along with People.cn, which is the internet version of People’s Daily of Central Committee of the Communist Party of China.
The poll was conducted between July 30 through September 30 taking votes from 10,768 Chinese people currently residing in Beijing, Shanghai and Korea and a total of 42 items were selected in three categories (consumer goods, durable goods, service).
EXO caught attention by being selected as the only entertainer in this poll. This proves SM’s outstanding producing ability and global brand power by making EXO into one of the hottest stars in Asia within a short amount of time after its debut in Korea and China in 2012.
Promoting in Korea and China simultaneously, EXO won various awards in China, including Most Popular Group and Best Group from Top Chinese Music Billboards Newcomers Awards and Most Popular Group from Baidu Awards in 2013, Album of the Year from Yinyuetei V-Chart Awards in 2014 and more.
