As a member of Korean boy group EXO (and subgroup EXO-K), vocalist/actor Baekhyun topped the charts around the world with the energetic K-pop nine-piece.
With his smooth R&B vocals and sensual energy, he became the third EXO member to branch out as a solo artist. After a handful of standalone singles were released through the late 2010s, he unveiled his official debut, City Lights, in 2019.
Born Byun Baekhyun in Bucheon, South Korea, he sang from a young age, inspired by early-2000s K-pop idol Rain. In 2011, he joined the SM Entertainment machine, debuting with EXO in early 2012. The group went on to top the Korean charts multiple times while maintaining a similar chart-topping presence on the U.S. World chart. Additionally, he also formed subunit EXO-CBX alongside bandmates Chen and Xiumin.
In 2015, Baekhyun issued his first solo output in the form of singles "Beautiful" and "Like Rain Like Music." The next year, he released singles "Dream" with Suzy and "The Day" with K. Will. Balancing his duties with EXO and EXO-CBX, he continued to deliver singles into 2019 when he unveiled his debut EP, City Lights. The short set became a best-seller in China, while going number one in Korea and soaring into the Top Ten of the Billboard Heatseekers, Independent, and World Albums charts. ~ Neil Z. Yeung, Rovi
