The K-pop boy band Exo achieved a massive feat this year, managing to place on two year-end lists from Billboard.com.
SM Entertainment, which represents the 10-member group, said on Thursday that Exo had ranked No. 7 on the World Album Artists Chart and eighth on the World Albums list with its second regular album “Exodus.”
According to SM, the group was the only Korean act to make both lists.
Exo released “Exodus” in July, releasing a repackaged version of the album, “Love Me Right,” in November.
Many K-pop acts choose to repackage their tracks for marketing purposes, changing the cover of their previous albums and adding one or
two new singles.
Exo’s two album sold more than 1 million copies.
