‘Exodus’ breaks million-sale mark
Popular K-pop boy group Exo topped a million combined sales for their second regular album “Exodus” and repackaged album “Love Me Right,” unveiled on Wednesday. The boy band’s feat is particularly impressive because it’s the second time they’ve sold a million, after their successful first album, “XOXO.”
Exo hit a million in sales just two months after their second record was unveiled. Their first album took seven months to reach the same figure.
With the release of their repackaged album, the popular boy band will compete against another top Korean boy group, Big Bang, on various music programs such as KBS’s “Music Bank” and SBS’s “Inkigayo,” which are expected to grab audiences’ attention due to the two boy groups’ large fan bases.
Big Bang, who released their new songs, “Bang Bang Bang” and “We Like 2 Party,” on Tuesday, have been competing against Exo since the release of their repackaged album on various music charts.
