Overdose

“Overdose,” EXO’s third extended play (also known as an extended play; will hereafter be known as EP) was released on May 7th, 2014. “Overdose” was released and distributed by SM Entertainment and KT Music worldwide. The EP was released and distributed on multiple digital music streaming applications: YouTube, iTunes, Spotify, QQ Music, MelOn, Genie, and Naver. The EP was simultaneously released in Korean and Mandarin in all regions. The EP’s initial release was delayed due to the unfortunate Sewol Ferry Disaster. Promotions for the EP began with a showcase at Jamsil Arena in Seoul on April 15th, 2014 following a ticket contest led by Samsung. This is the last release which would include members Kris and Luhan. It is also the last release to include the EXO-K and EXO-M designations.
