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


SEE ALSO: EXO break the 500,000 mark in album sales!



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!

It might be a little early to say this but I would recommend EXO to start preparing their winning speech for the Golden Disk Award since it's a huge award and it's highly likely they'll get the Daesung but they are only rookies so a formal thank you to the audience might embrace those who are not satisfied with them taking home the award since they only debuted last year. Congratz EXO on this huge achievement, you guys are getting way too popular these days, not that I'm complaining. I knew the ghost they encountered in Russia meant good luck.

The repackage is count as a different album, it doesn't get combine with the original album for the end of the year award. For them to get daesang, their highest album has to surpassed the current lead which is snsdas of right now. That is how the GDA work, it would not be fair for an artist who sell more album with no repackage. If the artist is good, they shouldnt need a repackage to make them pass the one with out it. The repackage album is mainly for fan who buy it for new photobook, photocard, etc. That's is why it is usually low (except for EXO case).
