Fans crash EXO-L website

The official website for K-pop boy band EXO’s newly-established fan club EXO-L crashed after too many fans tried to access it following its launch on Tuesday (August 5).

SEOUL: The official website for K-pop boy band EXO’s newly-established fan club EXO-L crashed after too many fans tried to access it following its launch on Tuesday (August 5), reported Korean media.

Those who wanted to join their official fan club EXO-L, short for EXO-Love, had to complete an application form on the website in order to register.

But the website crashed on Tuesday afternoon after too many users attempted to access the site at the same time, leaving many unable to register.

The band’s management agency SM Entertainment said they did not expect the EXO-L website to attract so many visitors, and are working to improve the situation.

EXO’s popularity has steadily increased following their debut in 2011.

Tickets to the band’s upcoming Singapore gig on August 23 were sold out just two days after going on sale last month.
