Here’s another achievement to add onto EXO’s list. The boys have just sold 740,000 copies of their XOXO album (both the Kiss & Hug versions as well as the repackaged albums).
The Korean Music Industry Association stated that EXO is the first artist to break the record of selling over 700,000 copies in the past 12 years. The last artist to be able to make this achievement was Kim Gun Mo with his 7th album, which sold around 1,390,000 copies. Before him was Jo Sung Mo, who sold 960,000 copies of his 4th album.
EXO sold 424,260 copies of their first XOXO album and 312,899 copies of their repackaged album so far. They’re just 3k shy of the 740,000 mark, with 737,159 copies sold… but knowing EXO, they’ll reach that 740,000 mark by tonight.
EXO is on the high rise, with their popularity skyrocketing beyond all imagination this year. They were able to grab 11 wins with their Growl comeback this year, as well as their 1st Triple Crown from Music Bank. They were able to beat K-Pop acts like f(x), 2Ne1, Seungri, Crayon Pop, and more for win.
Congratulations to EXO on yet another great achievement!
