A lot of great music has been released in 2017 so far, and one of the most successful albums to be dropped on K-pop fans this year is EXO's The War, which broke several pre-order and sales records in its first few weeks of release. And now there's official confirmation of how much The War has sold, and it's a LOT!

In a new Instagram story update from producer Otha "Vakseen" Davis III, who has worked with EXO on various songs since their EX'ACT album, shared a photo of a special platinum plaque that was recently presented to him in commemoration of The War selling over 1 million copies.

Not only is The War being certified platinum for selling 1 million copies an impressive achievement, this marks EXO's fourth album to be certified platinum after xoxoEXODUS, and EX'ACT.



With such a positive reception to the album from critics and the public, The War is shaping up to be a frontrunner for the "Album of the Year" honours at this year's awards shows!
