The boys of EXO have finally become the first artist(s) to sell over a million copies in a single year in twelve years!


SEE ALSO: Will EXO become the first million seller in 12 years?


As of December 27, EXO's 1st full-length album 'XOXO' has sold a total of 1,007,577 copies including 471,570 copies of its first full-length album and 536,007 copies of its 1st full-length repackaged album. 


To put this in perspective, no artist has sold 1 million albums in a year since 2001, the year when Kim Gun Mo's 7th album and g.o.d's 4th album both surpassed the 1 million milestone. Since the implementation of the online music market in 2005, EXO are the first artist of this era to accomplish this remarkable feat.

SM Entertainment stated, "If you add the 430,000 sold copies of EXO's special winter album 'Miracles in December', which was released this month, EXO's total album sales this year remarkably reached 1,440,000 copies... Both nominally and virtually, they are showing an album king-like power."


EXO shared, "We sincerely thank everyone who helped us break the valuable record of being a million seller. 2013 has become an unforgettable year for us as we received a lot of love from many people and received good results. In order to return the love, we will become an EXO who will continue to work hard next year."


Congrats, EXO!

i do not understand. People here are saying that there are 4 version of the album or whatsoever, and saying as if the 1 million album sales can be achieved so easily. If it was so easy, other artists could have achieved it easily in these twelve years.

Because other artists didn't think of selling 2 versions of the same album ................... that is cheating.

@vatmax how is it cheating when others didn't think as cleverly as they did?
