What seemed to have started from a mixture of fan creativity and boredom may now be the next big thing on social media, all thanks to EXO-Ls and EXO’s newest single, “Ko Ko Bop.”
In the August 7 episode of popular Filipino noontime show “It’s Showtime,” comedian and TV host Vice Ganda did the #KoKoBopChallenge which included dancing the quick hip thrust succession choreography, a signature move of EXO’s 2017 comeback song, “Ko Ko Bop.”

Some fans even got their parents doing the challenge!
