Some rumors appeared when EXO came to K-Pop showbiz. It said that EXO created to replace Super Junior. This rumor is totally hoax. No matter how long Super Junior will take a rest from public, they won’t disappoint their fans. EXO made because they are prepared since several years ago. It said SM Entertainment will create M-1. One of the members are SM The Ballad member, Jino. The facts, SM changed their mind for some reasons. Maybe this is what we called company strategy, Jino will appear in bigger opportunity
