EXO venturing into the Japanese entertainment industry with “EXO Channel” show

Popular Korean male group EXO is looking to make their official debut in Japan by launching their first Japanese television show, EXO Channel.

It is quite an unusual move for a foreign artist to enter the Japanese market through a television show instead of through an album release, making EXO’s Japanese debut even more impressive should they succeed on the charts when they do release a single.

EXO made their official debut in South Korea and China simultaneously in April 2012 and have quickly risen to be one of the most popular male idol groups in the few past short years.

The show will begin airing on Friday, August 7th at 1:53 through Tokyo TV.
