EXOs latest album is a huge hit!
After surpassing a record-breaking 800,000 in album preorders, EXO released their fourth studio album The War on July 18 at 6 p.m. KST. The title song Ko Ko Bop entered the Melon realtime chart at No. 1.
What is even more special about this achievement is that EXO is the first K-Pop group to debut as No. 1 after recent chart changes. Especially after revamping the realtime music chart system, it has been increasingly difficult for artists to enter the charts as No.1. The only other artists to make this achievement are IU and G-Dragon.
