EXO's 1st full-length album 'XOXO(Kiss&Hug)' broke another record by selling 740,000 copies in just three months since its release!

As of September 3 KST, EXO sold 424,260 copies of the regular version of their 'XOXO' album which was released on June 3 and 312,899 copies of its repackaged version released in August, bringing the total up to 737,159 copies sold. 


SM Entertainment stated, "According to the Korean Music Industry Association, [EXO] is the first artist to break the record of selling over 700,000 in 12 years since 2001 following Kim Gun Mo's 7th album (1,390,000 copies sold) and Jo Sung Mo's 4th album (960,000 copies sold)."


This achievement is significant especially considering that physical album sales have been on the decline since the start of the online market and the increase of illegal downloading.


Congrats to EXO and their fans!
