In a recent interview, Han Geng (aka Hankyung), a former member of Super Junior, praised EXO-M and EXO on April 8th in Shenzhen, China at the 12th Annual Billboard Music Festival. He was interviewed by on-site reporters.
He praised EXO, saying “They’re [EXO-M] really just a fantastic group, and I’m really impressed by their debut.”
His comment received mixed reactions from netizens. Some were happy that Hangeng commented well on his former entertainment company’s artists, and some who disliked S.M. Entertainment felt dismayed by his comment.
After leaving Super Junior, Hangeng has had a relatively successful career by broadening his activities, such as starring in films. So, for EXO-M, who debuted only a day ago, to receive praise from China’s Prince is already quite an accomplishment. In addition to Hangeng, EXO-M have also won over producers in the Chinese music industry, “EXO will most likely do very well in China. S.M.’s social networking strategy has already garnered a lot of attention for EXO. Their [EXO] superior vocals and musical style will definitely interest those in the large and profitable Chinese market.”
EXO debuted on the 8th in Korea and China and will continue to promote MAMA in both countries.
