EXO isn't dominating in just overall album sales - they're also dominating first-week sales!

In a list of all first-week sales compiled since January 1st, 2008, EXO took up 9 of the top 10 places, and all 5 of the top 5. They've broken their own record by selling more than 300,000 in the first week with 'EX'ACT', and they're also the only group to have sold more than 200,000 in the first week (they have 3 albums that did this), and one of the 3 that sold more than 100,000 in the first week.

BTS is the only group that's not from a big label that has sold more than 100,000 in the first week, and TVXQ's 'Mirotic' is also notable as it sold more than 100,000 even in 2008. Seventeen is the only rookie group to have made it in the list (and in top 15, no less!), while Girls' Generation and f(x) are the only females on the list that sold more than 50,000 in the first week. Taemin, Kim Hyun Joong, Jaejoong, G-Dragon, Junsu, Taeyeon, and Jay Park are the only soloists on the list, and Super Junior's subunit D&E also makes their name known.

Check out the list for yourself below!

nice one Exo !!!!but for the other fandom. please dont feel offended because of NUMBERespecially for TVXQ fans --> TVXQ deserved a king title. 100k first week sales in 2008? that was a great number! i can say that 100k in 2008 almost equals to 300k in 2015. there a lot of different things between now and old daysanyway, thats the fact that EXO doing well nowdays. personally, i'm not a fan and i dont even give a small interest. the reason? i'm a Man and of course i'll make a Girlsgroup as my fav idol. but as long as it's SM artist, i'll be happy for every their good news.

so the conclusion is sm smarter than yg right ? or i think bigbang not as hard working like exo , did you think its easy to make 2 version you must respact them, they got what they deserve, if you that jealous with exo go help your idol with buy 100 copying, and if you dont even buy it you dont deserve to judge exo L , LOL

vkookbtsbtsbts Sunday, June 12, 2016

hey all kpop get your shits right. that's the chart for ONE DAY not a week, exo hit 400k album sales in 2 days + it hasn't even been a week since the album's release it was only 4 days wtf

j123m vkookbtsbtsbts Monday, June 13, 2016

but i dont think is her fault tho.. this chart was made by a fan and posted online portal.. i think she just took it and wrote the news... she might nit be a fan of exo she wont know exo sales

Kija j123m Monday, June 13, 2016

Well it sure is her fault for using a fan as a legitimate source to write and article about
