EXO-L (EXO’s fans) have always been misunderstood by others and was even named one of the worst fan clubs in the K-pop scene due to the rude behaviors of new and minor fans. But behind this bad reputation, EXO-Ls have proven themselves as one of the best K-pop fandoms numerous times in the past. Today (Aug. 5), EXO-L is celebrating their eighth anniversary.

As our way to commemorate this special day, here are five reasons the fandom is one of the best out there.

Moreover, Egyptian EXO-Ls successfully collected more than 126 million won to donate to the cancer hospital in the country called 57357.

Another reason EXO-L is one of the best K-pop fandoms because of the birthday projects they launch yearly. Some of the members’ birthdays are celebrated through donations as well.

One of the first birthday projects was when D.O celebrated his 22nd birthday back in 2013. The fans donated 2.2 million won to a children’s center in Ilsan along with 1.12 million won and 2,200 briquettes to UNICEF.

In the Philippines, EXO-Ls paid thousands to Mall of Asia to display Chanyeol’s birthday ads and Suho’s birthday ads on the mall’s giant globe.

Notably, EXO-Ls often gift the EXO members with billboards at New York’s Time Square for their birthdays and special events.

Over the years, EXO-L prepared foods for the fans attending EXO’s concerts. It is also their way to show their support for the EXO members in their activities.

When Chanyeol was shooting for the “So I Married an Anti-Fan” film in 2015, the male idol’s fan sites sent a food truck to the filming site. Baekhyun Fan Union also sent a food truck and food support to Baekhyun when recording “Scarlet Heart Ryeo.”

In 2016, EXO-L in Dubai sent a coffee and ice cream trucks for EXO-Ls who attended “EXOrDIUM” in Seoul.

The fan club also does fan projects, including the ones on the first and second day of “EXOrDIUM [dot]” in Seoul (Day 1: NO XO, NO LIFE; Day 2: EXO <3 EXO-L).

During “EXO’luXion” at Tokyo Dome, Japanese EXO-Ls prepared a fan project for the group, in which they surprised the group by singing “Promise.”

Undoubtedly, the silver and rainbow ocean that EXO-Ls make during concerts is one of the best K-pop oceans and one of the things unique about them.
