After approximately a year and six months, the "K-pop Titan" returned to the music scene with their special album, "DON'T FIGHT THE FEELING."

Aside from being a commemorative album as they celebrate their ninth debut anniversary, the release is more special with the participation of their lone Chinese member, Lay, who has been busy promoting as a solo Mandopop superstar.
Along with him, Xiumin and D.O. graced the stage as well with their first comeback after completing their military services. Despite Chanyeol and Baekhyun currently in the military, they were able to participate in this special album.
The album features seven members, excluding Suho and Chen, who are fulfilling their military duties after both enlisting in 2020.
Meanwhile, the much-anticipated comeback made a huge impact on the music charts. "DON'T FIGHT THE FEELING" topped the music charts weekly, including the Hanteo Chart and Synnara Records, which were released on June 14.
On the same day, EXO's special album topped the Gaon Chart's weekly retail album chart for the 24th week as well. The chart then declared at 5 p.m. on June 9 that the special album is the best-selling one.
