Exo achieves major sales milestone
Boy group Exo has sold more than 10 million total albums since their debut in 2012, a major milestone in the Korean music industry, its agency said Monday.
SM Entertainment said more than 12 million copies of the group’s albums - five full-length albums, two EPs, a winter special album and a live album - have been sold since 2012. Among K-pop artists who debuted after 2000, Exo is the only one to achieve the record, the agency said.
All five of its albums have sold at least 1 million copies.
The latest, “Don’t Mess Up My Tempo,” released on Nov. 2, has sold 1.17 million copies as of Sunday. The album topped iTunes albums chart in 47 countries and China’s Xiami Music’s overall chart.
