EXO soon to hit a million milestone!

Posted: 14 Oct 2013 04:40 AM PDT

The power group EXO may soon be hitting a million milestone with their first full-length album 'XOXO'!

As of October 11th, EXO's first full-length album which was released back in June, has already sold 441,332 and first repackaged album sold 469,641 copies, totaling to a whopping 910,973 albums in total.

The number of sales is still increasing, and it seems that EXO will likely break the million milestone before the end of the year.

Since Kim Gun Mo's 7th album and g.o.d's 4th album back in 2001, no one has managed to achieve a million sales due to the rampant illegal downloading and the beginning of online markets in 2005. Thus, many people are now focusing their attention to EXO's achievements.
