It goes without saying that Twitter has been going off in the past few days in regards to EXO's upcoming comeback, with millions of tweets being sent out about the group around the world. Among the numerous locations around the world where fans are sending in their tweets, some have noticed that a few tweets have been coming in from a very unexpected place - North Korea.

Twitter Korea recently tweeted out an EXO trend map that highlighted all the areas around the world where EXO fans are from. One of these areas happens to be the North Korean capital city of Pyongyang.

This is quite surprising as according to North Korean criminal law, watching or listening to South Korean media is punishable with at least 10 years of hard labour.

Upon this discovery, netizens have taken to Twitter to express their concerns for the North Korean EXO-Ls, as well as their amazement at how much love EXO are getting from North Korea.
