The teasing made the wait agonizing. But EXO-Ls can finally enjoy the second official comeback of EXO-CBX starting today. The group is the sub-unit of the hugely popular South Korean boy group EXO. CBX stands for the names of the trio who are part of the sub-unit. They are Chen (Kim Jongdae), Baekhyun (Byun Baekhyun) and Xiumin (Kim Minseok).
The official music video of their mini-album title song “Blooming Day” was uploaded today, April 10, 6 p.m. KST (5 p.m. local time).
EXO-CBX leader and lead vocalist Xiumin first hinted their 2018 comeback on his birthday post on March 26 through the official EXO-L app. He did not give the date right away. Instead, he made his fans work it out themselves through a puzzle shared in the official EXO-L app.
EXO-Ls, in return, did not disappoint as they were able to deduce within minutes the exact release date of the album.
