The members of EXO-M, the Mandarin unit of popular K-pop band EXO, recently returned home to China, where they performed their newest single “Overdose” for the first time on CCTV’s “Global Chinese Music” live stage music ranking program on Sunday.
EXO’s upcoming “Overdose” mini-album was originally set to be released on April 21, but has been officially postponed as the nation continues to mourn for the victims and missing passengers, mostly students, of the Sewol ferry sinking. Because of the tragedy, SM Entertainment has suspended all of EXO’s activities in Korea, including scheduled showcases and broadcast appearances.
“As we hope for the safe return of the passengers and offer our condolences for the victims, we ask fans who have been waiting for the album release for their understanding,” said a representative from SM Entertainment.
The official postponed release date for EXO’s upcoming mini-album has yet to be announced.
