By Tae Hong

Count EXO-M in for The Korea Times’ 12th Korean Music Festival on May 3.

The sub-group of six, comprised of Chinese, Korean and Canadian members, is managed by S.M. Entertainment.

Since debuting in 2012, EXO has fast risen to the top of the K-Pop charts.

“XOXO,” their first full-length album that was released last year, became the first Korean record to hit one million sales in 12 years. The title track, “Growl,” swept the charts and came in at No. 1 on Billboard’s “2013 K-Pop Best 20” list.

EXO-M will join nine other teams — Crayon Pop, B1A4, 2AM, Jung Dong-ha, Insooni, Kim Jong-seo, Ulala Session, Shim Soo-bong and Dal Shabet — for this year’s KMF at the Hollywood Bowl.

The KMF is an annual festival that brings together the Korean American community, as well as K-Pop lovers, of all ages.

Buy tickets at or at The Korea Times offices located at 4525 Wilshire Blvd. For more information, call (323) 692-2055.
