EXO made their long-awaited comeback last night with the release of their new album "The War," and the boys are already breaking records left and right!

Following a record-setting number of pre-orders for "The War," EXO's new album have managed to top the iTunes Worldwide Albums Chart in a whopping 34 countries at the time of writing, managing to set a new iTunes record for an album released by a Korean group.

It wasn't just the iTunes charts that were being lit up by EXO. Within hours of the release of their "Ko Ko Bop" MV, EXO have managed to enter the Melon Realtime Chart at No.1 (at the time of writing). Not only did the Melon servers crash under the weight of EXO, but this achievement was particularly impressive as the boys are the 1st K-pop group to debut at No.1 after chart changes intended on making No.1 debuts more difficult were introduced back in February.


A huge congrats to EXO for their massively-successful comeback! To celebrate, let's get bopping once again with their awesome "Ko Ko Bop" MV:
