EXO has become a double million seller and broke their own record while doing so with the release of the repackaged version of second studio album EXODUS, LOVE ME RIGHT.
As of today (June 3), they have sold a total of 753,860 copies of EXODUS and 371,160 copies of LOVE ME RIGHT, bringing their total sales to slightly over 1.125 million copies.
As EXODUS was released on March 30, they reached the million copy mark in a little over two months, which is less than half the time it took for their first album, XOXO to do so. XOXO was released on June 3 and hit the million copy mark on December 27 and was the first Korean million-selling album in 12 years.
The group has been under the media spotlight recently amidst rumours of Chinese members Tao and Lay possibly leaving the group, which were dismissed by label S.M. Entertainment. Tao will not be participating in any of the promotions for LOVE ME RIGHT as he is reportedly currently in the USA.
EXO will be holding their first comeback stage for LOVE ME RIGHT tomorrow on Mnet’s M!Countdown.
