The album is predicted by many to reach the one million mark very soon because of the undying support it receives from fans and would-be fans up to this day.

Reaching the one million mark is already a big feat for Korean artists and only quite a few have achieved it. One of the few was Kim Gun Mo and his seventh album "Another Days", as well as g.o.d.'s "Chapter 4 Road". Since 2001, album sales all artist has shown a comparable decrease due to the rise of online illegal downloading. The launch of a legitimate online music market back in 2005 helped alleviate the issue with online piracy. EXO's "XOXO" is the first album to reach this much success since.

EXO made it through the 740,000 mark in September, and their album has only been selling for three months by then. It is dubbed the fastest selling album in 12 years.

The boys of EXO have recently concluded their promotional activities for "XOXO" and are now reportedly working on their new album. EXO is also confirmed to be one of the first foreign singers to perform at the Beijing Olympic Stadium in "SMTOWN Live World Tour III in Beijing".
