In addition, unexpected network errors occurred on biggest Korean music sites such as Melon and Synnara Records after EXO's album was released because there were so many fans who visited the sites to listen to the album and buy the album. There's no other k-pop idol group who has such a great influence with k-pop fans.
On July 18, EXO appeared in V-app's live broadcast. You know, you can give hearts to k-pop idols while watching the live broadcast, and EXO received more than 100 million hearts on its live broadcast. EXO is the only k-pop idol group who can receive so many hearts on V-app's live broadcast.
Not only Korean fans but also a lot of foreign fans watched the broadcast to communicate with EXO, and the fact that EXO received lots of hearts means the boy group is that much popular all over the world and fans around the world have been really looking forward to the group's comeback.
New records to be set soon
But that's not all. It is expected that EXO will set other records soon too. First, EXO had 800,000 copies of its album pre-ordered, and it seems certain that EXO will become a "quadruple million seller" soon by selling more than million copies of its fourth full album. You know, EXO has become a "triple million seller" by selling more than million copies of its first, second and third full albums.
Second, it is expected that EXO, who made a very successful comeback will win the grand prize at the end-of-year music awards 5 years in a row. There's no other Korean singer who has achieved such a thing in the k-pop history, and EXO will make new k-pop history if the group win the grand prize at this year's end-of-year music awards.
Third, it is expected that EXO will break its own record by winning more than 32 trophies of k-pop chart shows. In 2015, EXO won a total of 32 trophies, and nobody broke the record yet. Of course, it's never easy to break such a record, but you know, EXO always achieves more than expected.
