With crowds lining up to greet them at Dubai Airport this morning, it's safe to say they have a fan base here, but will the members of Exo return for a concert in the UAE?

While at a press conference in the Burj Khalifa today, band member Suho hinted that the band is keen to return to the UAE perform: “We want to come back again here to perform our next concert, and sing our next song. So, wait for us, okay? Wait for us. We hope to see you again,” he said.

But this trip is all about the K-pop boy band's inclusion into the Dubai Fountain’s list of melodies (their track Power to be exact). Keen fans began to arrive at the Downtown Dubai location in the early afternoon today, to make sure they get a good vantage point for the show at 5.30pm tonight.

Those who are unable to be there should keep an eagle eye on Twitter, as many local fans have promised that they will stream the moment on their accounts.

Looking dapper and refreshed, the band appeared before a few lucky fans at a press conference in the Burj Khalifa to the chants of “E-X-O”.

They even took a giant group selfie:

While the popular boy band has never performed in the Emirates, with such a warm reception upon their arrival this morning, might it happen?

The past couple of years have seen more Korean events come to the country, including the Korean Film Festival (as part of UAE's K-Fest), KCON (a convention celebrating Korean pop culture) and even the opening of a new Korean Cultural Centre in Abu Dhabi.

We'll keep our fingers crossed.
