    @ usagi no yousei
    I don't know where you heard that from, but I'm not sure. From what I see this is fake which is the only thing I could find that's about "EXO-J".

    Look at the articles again. I'm not too sure, but I don't think they there is going to be a EXO-J. Unless someone from SM Town says, you're going to have to wait. Sad

    @ disasterologist.
    AJDSKJD Shannon, did you know that EXO-K appears in a kdrama? Wink
