EXO’s long-awaited group comeback is off to an exciting start!
On July 10 at 6 p.m. KST, EXO made their highly-anticipated return with their seventh full-length album “EXIST,” marking their first group comeback in over two years.
Within hours of its release, “EXIST” became EXO’s first album ever to surpass 1 million first-week sales—and it achieved the feat in just one day.
According to Hanteo Chart, “EXIST” sold an impressive total of 1,074,914 copies on its first day of sales alone—smashing not only EXO’s previous first-day sales record of 647,010, but also their previous first-week sales record of 902,210 (both set by their 2021 special album “DON’T FIGHT THE FEELING“) in just one day.
Not only is “EXIST” already EXO’s first album ever to surpass 1 million first-week sales, but it has also made EXO the male artist with the seventh-highest first-day sales in Hanteo history (following SEVENTEEN, BTS, Stray Kids, TXT, ZEROBASEONE, and ENHYPEN).
With six days of sales still left to go, it remains to be seen just how much higher “EXIST” will climb in the week to come.
Congratulations to EXO on their amazing achievement!
