EXO shows relentless momentum even in their 12th year since debut

Boy group EXO topped the global rankings at the 9th TOP TEN AWARDS (hereinafter referred to as TTA), where they compete for the “best global artist” position.

Organized by TenAsia, the 9th TTA is an event to select the best global artist in the second half of 2022. As a result, EXO ranked first in the global rankings, as well as in the US and Indonesia, boasting their unchanging popularity.


Xiumin, who represents EXO, expressed his feelings regarding the achievement. In particular, the male idol said, “Our EXO has won the Best Global Artist Award for the second half of 2022 at the 9th TTA. We also ranked first in the United States and Indonesia”, adding, “I think we were able to receive such a wonderful trophy thanks to the efforts of EXO-Ls around the world.”

At the same time, Xiumin mentioned EXO’s upcoming full-member comeback and continued, “Please look forward to EXO’s comeback this year”, adding, “Please continue to support us. We always appreciate and love our EXO-Ls.”

EXO, who won the global 1st place at the 9th TTA, will begin activities as a full group following Baekhyun’s military discharge. On April 8th and 9th, the boy group will hold the fan meeting “EXO’ CLOCK”. In addition, they will also hold fan meetings in Japan to meet fans directly.


Expectations for a full-member comeback are high. EXO’s last special album before their military service, “DON’T FIGHT THE FEELING”, sold 1,089,681 copies within a week of its release, making it their sixth “million-seller”.

Starting with their first full album in 2013, EXO has also recorded million-seller status with their second album “EXODUS”, third album “EX’ACT”, fourth album “THE WAR”, and fifth album “DON’T MESS UP MY TEMPO”.

On the other hand, from January 26th to February 8th, TTA preliminary voting was held in 10 countries, including South Korea, the United States, China, Japan, the United Kingdom, Indonesia, Thailand, Mexico, Malaysia, and the Philippines. Final voting took place from February 10th to February 23rd.

ENHYPEN won three crowns in Japan, the United Kingdom, and the Philippines. Meanwhile, Kang Daniel ranked first in South Korea, ATEEZ in Malaysia, and Secret Number in China. Additionally, ASTRO topped the chart in Mexico, and GOT7 in Thailand.
