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?

Congrats to exo..they deserved this title..and based in the itunes chart, there are only 2 album for exo and not 4 as the kor ver n mandarin ver also included in the XOXO album n XOXO repackaged album..

Oh SMART MOVE SM !! With the 1,000,000 sold album EXO can win the GDA this year.
Wow !! So, super junior didn't have a comeback this year because the knew that EXO is ;
going to surpass their album selling !!!! If Super Junior had a comeback this year, they would ;
have lost the GDA :) & Sm doesn't want Suju to lose their " king of hallyu" pffft. Has super junior ever sold 1,000,000 copy of their album? NOPE. HAHAHAHAH. So, next year no EXO comeback because they want super junior to have it lol losers. :) ; Although I hate both bands but ;to me - ;EXO > Super junior. Always. :) ;

I'll just quote Lee Soo Man: ''If there was no BoA there would be no SM.'' Don't praise your guys too much, they wouldn't be nothing if there was no BoA, Kangta, TVXQ, SuJu, SNSD.

Hahahahahah xD Thats funny because SJ doesn't need to sell 4 albums to get as high sales as EXO xD

People, did you even read the article? The whole article? Every single phrase?! It says EXO is the first artist to sold 1 million albums IN A YEAR. It doesn't says EXO sold XOXO (Wolf) in 1 million copies... So, it doesn't matter if it's XOXO (Wolf) XOXO repackage (Growl) MAMA I don't know which album/version as long as they sold in 2013 more than 1 million albums.

Their music is amazing! And they have only just started with albums and..WAOH!! They did so well and they are doing so well. Though I wish they could get rest it seems they are doing concerts, shows, interviews every minute. I love them so much. They are so talented and so kind and pure. I hope they stay healthy (most importantly) and I love that they are doing so well in album-sales <3
