EXO’s Baekhyun Becomes 1st “Million Seller” Solo Artist In 19 Years With “Delight”
According to SM Entertainment, Baekhyun’s second mini album “Delight,” released on May 25, has sold a total of 1,018,746 copies as of June 30. Baekhyun is the first solo artist in 19 years to surpass a million copies in sales since Kim Gun Mo‘s seventh album in 2001.
Moreover, EXO’s first full album in 2013 had been the first album to sell over a million copies in 12 years at the time and is deemed to have opened a new era of “million sellers”. Baekhyun is the second artist to earn the “million seller” title both as a solo and as a group following Seo Taiji of Seo Taiji and Boys.
Baekhyun posted a video message on EXO’s official Twitter account to thank his fans for the achievement. He shared, “Hello, EXO-L. Thanks to you, our EXO-L, I’ve set a grand record. I’ve told you through V Live in the past that you should feel proud. The record was achieved not on my own, but with our EXO-L, so please enjoy feeling proud. I’ll continue to make you happier, so please wait a bit. Until the day we can meet offline, let’s meet online often while we wait for that day. EXO-L, thank you so much. The words ‘thank you’ are not enough to express how thankful I am. I love you, EXO-L, and thank you for always making me happy. Thank you for being there to allow me to make you feel happy. I’m not sure what I’m saying, but thank you. I love you!”
