Baekhyun (EXO) is the first million-selling solo singer after 19 years in Korea

On May 25, Baekhyun made a comeback with the 2nd mini album ‘Delight’ featuring the title track ‘Candy’.  Immediately, the album ‘Delight’ made a series of ‘huge’ achievements. However, the most remarkable achievement of Delight was confirmed on July 1st.  Accordingly, Baekhyun has sold a total of 1,018,746

1million eighteen thousand 7 hundred forty six copies in just one month. The male idol has officially become the first million-selling soloist of Kpop after 19 years since the singer Kim Gun Mo in 2001.

 In addition, as a member of EXO, Baekhyun continues to affirm the title million seller of the group. All 5 albums in a row of the SM boy group have sold more than 1 million copies. Thus, Baekhyun became the golden boy of Kpop because whether as a group member or a soloist, he is still a million seller.

Baekhyun has also continued the success of the legendary Seo Taiji after 20 years – who sold more than 1 million solo albums released in 1998 and when active with Seo Taiji & Boys in 2000. This is the second time in the Korean music history that an artist has sold million copies with both group albums and solo albums.
