Good news for Exo-Ls who haven’t been able to get to Dubai Fountain yet - it’s just been announced that Power will be on show at The Dubai Fountain for longer than anticipated.

It was originally planned to only play in January, but the light and water show that is choreographed with the K-Pop song has been extended until March 31.

There will be five performances a week until then: Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday at 8.30pm and Thursday and Friday at 10.30pm.

The massively popular K-pop boy band came to Dubai on January 16 to watch the first showing of their hit song at Dubai Fountain: it is the first K-Pop melody to be part of a Dubai Fountain show.

Their arrival caused a social media frenzy as their fans waited at Dubai International Airport at 5am and made the hashtag #WelcometoDubaiExo a top trending topic in the UAE.

Even though their appearance at the Dubai Fountain was short (they only came out for a few minutes to watch the performance from the steps of the Burj Khalifa), they uploaded other photos onto their Instagram showing themselves enjoying their time in the UAE:

Band member Chanyeol uploaded his view of the fountain performance:

So will Exo be back? It seems that they would like to, as Suho suggested they want to return for a concert while asking fans to "wait for them".

But, in the meantime, Exo-Ls might just have to settle for the fountain performance (but at least you now have until March to enjoy that).
