Welcome to HelloKpop Daily News Recap as we round up the significant events that happened today (April 8).
Celebrating #6YearsWithEXO: 6 Reasons EXO’s Debut Is Unforgettable
When SM Entertainment announced in 2012 that it will be launching a new boy group, the K-Pop world watched, looked, and listened.
It was SM in the first place — the company which gave birth to some of the most successful boy groups in K-Pop history such as H.O.T, Shinhwa, TVXQ, Super Junior, and SHINee. And it has been four years since it introduced a new boy group in its line up of artists.
On 8 April 2012, SM finally debuted EXO, introducing new faces in the industry and successfully engraving on people’s mind the names Suho, Xiumin, Luhan, Kris, Lay, Chen, Baekhyun, Chanyeol, Tao, Kai, D.O, and Sehun. This milestone also shaped the rest of the history later on and till now.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to SHINee’s shining star KIM JONG HYUN
Late SHINee’s Kim Jong Hyun wrote, composed, and arranged songs and albums — a rarity in a company who is known for limiting its artists’ creative control over the production of their releases.
But the singer-songwriter, who debuted as a member of SHINee in 2008, broke the wall and became the first artist of SM Entertainment to significantly participate in album production, beginning with “Juliette” from his group’s second extended play Romeo.
Thank you for the music, the artistry, the inspiration, and for giving us so much to remember and celebrate about you.
“Always be with you.” #jonghyun_day #영원한_너의봄 #종현아생일축하해
