As of Tuesday morning, the music video for EXO-K’s Korean version had been viewed more than 7.3 million times on YouTube in less than a week, while its counterpart EXO-M’s Mandarin version had drawn more 3.2 million views, for a combined total of over 10.5 million hits.
“Overdose,” the lead track from the group’s latest EP of the same name, topped all major local music charts almost immediately after its release.
The members of EXO kept fans waiting longer than initially scheduled as they decided to postpone the release because of the Sewol ferry tragedy. EXO’s six-track EP was eventually released last week on May 7.
