K-pop boy band EXO’s official fan club surpassed 3 million members on Wednesday.

The fan club now has 3,003,949 members as of Wednesday morning.

EXO-L, the band’s first-ever official fan club, saw its membership growing at an unprecedented rate since its launch in August 2014.

The fan club’s name EXO-L is a shorter form of EXO-Love. The alphabet L comes between K and M, meaning EXO, composed of sub-units EXO-M and EXO-K, and their fans are one.

The immense popularity of the 10-member band prompted overseas fans to flock to the fan club site (exo-l.smtown.com), which led to its temporary shutdown.

Those seeking to gain membership to the fan club should go through an application process on EXO-L’s official website or mobile application.

Only the members can access EXO’s schedule of activities and can participate in some of the events, according to SM Entertainment.

Meanwhile, EXO will attend the upcoming Gaon Chart K-pop Awards along with other K-pop acts on Wednesday.
