Korean netizens are in an outrage after a new SBS drama titled, “Modern Farmer”, was revealed to be using the name “EXO” for their fake-band in the drama.

The main lead is also a senior singer so I’m worried there will be war amongst fandoms in the future. For us EXO-L, EXO is a precious team name, but it will cause confusion for people who watch the drama.” ...
