During a recent CBS radio broadcast, anchor Park Jaehong and the director of the search engine Daum, Choi Jaewon, talked about the most popular K-pop group in North Korea. Anchor Park Jaehong then asked Choi Jaewon to reveal which K-pop groups might receive warm welcoming from North Koreans.
To the question, Choi Jaewon said, "The first place is EXO, second place is INFINITE, third is Girls' Generation, fourth is Psy, and fifth is MAMAMOO." It turned out that, on one survey conducted in the country, EXO received 5,056 votes, while the second to 5th place received each, 1,954 votes, 1,833 votes, 651 votes, and 281 votes, respectively.
Choi Jaewon also said, "For EXO, we even found tweets coming from North Korea about the group in July last year. EXO is a popular K-pop star even in North Korea."

I've already heard this before, regarding EXO and GG's popularity in North Korea. I've even read that their albums are one of the most smuggled item they sneak in to that country.
