    Lay is the most successful as a soloist with over 3 million overall sales. And successful, composer, songwriter, model and actor.

    DO is the most successful actor and voice actor with over 500K sales of his solo, OST and collaboration singles.

    Kai and Suho are succeeding as actors. You can tell that they're seriously into it and they'll not turn back, Suho is also a songwriter and Kai is a successful model.

    Chanyeol is a successful MC and songwriter who has been contributing to writing songs since 2014 from Run in overdose to Sweet lies in The War and, composing Young Street and Last Hunter. He also has successful collaborations has has over 2 million sales. And is an actor.

    Sehun is a successful model successfully getting into acting.

    Chen loves musicals but has starred in only one. He is a successful songwriter who has been writing songs in their albums since 2015 ( love me right era )
    Chen is also an OST king. He has almost 4.5 million sales of his songs and collaborations.

    Baekhyun is a variety king. He has successful collaborations with Suzy and Soyou. And is a songwriter with over 3 million overall sales of his solo songs.

    Xiumin is into acting and variety and has successful collaboration singles with over a million sales.

    Meanwhile, Kai and Sehun have both contributed to making their solo stages at Exo concerts and their solo singles.

    IMO and from my observation, they're growing pretty strong and are doing amazing.

    What do you think?

    The only member without a solo award is Suho. And useless Sehun has solo awards too for those that find him useless.

    And one thing I've noticed is that people don't consider Exo's composing and songwriting and OSTs.

    Exo do compose, songwrite and have some of the most successful OSTs and collaborations.

    Chen won MAMA and MMA award for his collaboration.

    Baekhyun won a digital Bonsang for his collaboration with Suzy.

    Chanyeol's stay with me was a massive hit on the charts.

    You can try to deny that they are relevant but can't delete their achievements.

    Sure they are doing well as actor's but it help's they are in top movies etc.. and dont tell me they made them big because they didnt.

    Kai is a pretty average actor ive watched some of his stuff and its not the best , you can tell hes a idol actor.

    Lay is the only one doing pretty good others are pretty eh.

    I'm not the one that calls him that, many people here call Sehun useless. I'm just trying to show them that he has power too even in his useless state. Lol!

    Whether they made the big movies big or not, it doesn't Matter, what matters is them doing well as actors. The only reason pure love got any attention was because of DO and Kim So Hyun.

    Kai is an actor doing so well for rookie and he'll definitely improve. He has not received any hate regarding his recent projects but praise. And of course he's an idol.

    They don't need to be Bigbang to do well and Bigbang didn't start big either.

    He isn't useless. If you actually are a fan, you will know that he is a fashion icon too. He has individual photoshoots and represents exo during fashion week. Try reading up on them before commenting !

    Well they are doing fine in their solo projects, even if their names are not big names individually now I can see them all going there especially as they enter that stage in every SM group in which their solo activities increase.

    They are not Big Bang but they are surely on their way.

    Suho will break that curse of not having any solo awards this year. Dinner and Do you have a moment? will change that. Also he'll be starring in another drama and he did well in both Glory Days and Star Universe. And a musical to boot.

    They are on their way to create succesful careers in the entertainment industry. They have what it takes.

    You use the word successful very liberally lmao. Imo D.O and Lay are the only ones who have recognition as solo artists not as part of EXO. But the others have potential

    I think xiumin is such an underrated actor. In "the man who sells the river" he played SOOOO WELL

    Wait, I don't get it.

    Do you mean successful as a solo musician? Or all around?
    Because all around I think they all have their own strengths but as a solo musician Lay is the one who's made the most impact. Which is why I chose option 2.

    Lay is Absolutely killing it and making more money alone than most top kpop groups.(Lay made like 18 million this year at this rate he is richer than G dragon).Other members are nowhere near lay in terms of money income(No one in Kpop is) but they are doing good just that sm should capitalise on xiumin and baekhyun's popularity and give them more solo projects

    The knetz would have bashed him already. He's not the best actor yes but for a rookie he's impressive. And you don't have to like his acting so it's ok.
