His concerts combined elements of musical performance with audience engagement.
EXO toured throughout China in support of their extended play release, "Overdose." In 2014, EXO-M engaged in heavy promotional activities throughout the region, particularly during the period following the Sewol Ferry tragedy. The group continues to maintain popularity in mainland China, even after the departure of Wu Yi Fan (Kris) and Luhan. 

The list published by the Cultural Industry Research Center also included top artists in Chinese music. Singaporean singer-songwriter JJ Lin, who collaborated with CNBLUE's Jung Yong Hwa for "Checkmate," was highlighted for his Timeline World Tour.
