When EXO debuted in 2012, they received of criticism. Critics assumed that EXO became famous thanks to their managers and great looks.

They were called:

“SM’s biggest failure”

During their debut days, the members didn’t have enough money and they even charged street performances with rice packages. During their first fan sign in 2012, only 18 people attended. We wonder how the haters are doing now that EXO became one of the most famous K-Pop groups in the world.

When SM Entertainment named the band EXO in 2011, people made fun of the name because of its meaning. The name of EXO came from exoplanet, a term referring to planets outside the Solar System, where the members Suho, Xiumin, Lay, Baekhyun, Chen, Chanyeol, D.O., Kai, and Sehun supposedly had superpowers. People laughed at EXO because of their superpower concepts.

3. For losing members

Haters believed that EXO wouldn’t last after three Chinese members, Kris, Luhan, and Tao, left in 2015. Fans thought EXO Lay would be “the next traitor” and would leave the group as well. EXO’s leader, Suho, sacrificed himself for the members and managed to surf this criticism wave with great courage and leadership.

4. For their 'bad' rap lines
