One of K-pop's biggest acts is coming on its first tour to North America.

EXO is the nine-member boy band that are the latest sensations to take over Asia (they've scored No. 1 hits in Korea, Japan and China), and they're making inroads in America and Canada (they currently hold the biggest sales week ever for a K-pop album in the U.S. with their Exodus LP from earlier this year and sent their single "Call Me Baby" to the Canada Hot 100). The nine-piece will make five stops in North America in February after locals fans voted for which cities they wanted the act to visit via K-pop concert kickstarer site MyMusicTaste.

EXO's upcoming trek follows a year that was particularly high on U.S. K-pop shows thanks to the likes of Epik High (12 North American shows), BTS (eight shows), BIGBANG (seven shows).
