PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) _ As if a silver medal wasn’t enough, Evgenia Medvedeva is getting an ideal end to her Winter Olympics:
A chance to meet K-pop supergroup EXO.
The nine-member crew was set to perform at Sunday night’s closing ceremony, but first they met with Medvedeva to sign autographs and take a photo.

The South Korean-Chinese group has released five studio albums that have sold millions worldwide and won numerous awards, and the 18-year-old Medvedeva is a diehard fan. She even listened to EXO before her record-breaking short program on Feb. 11.
"It's unreal inspiration and it really improved my mood," the Russian skater said at the time. "I feel more confident because of them."
That much is obvious from Medvedeva’s social media and YouTube pages. The ladies' silver medalist routinely posts videos of herself dancing to K-pop jams, including these EXO-inspired grooves.
