Exo takes home 100th music show trophy

Sept 16,2017
Boy band Exo took home another first prize from Mnet’s weekly TV music show, “M Countdown,” marking the band’s 100th music show trophy since their debut. Exo released the repackaged edition of their hit fourth album, “The War” on Sept. 5.

In addition to their first prize, they also received full marks on the show’s judging criteria - preference, popularity on social media and number of total albums sold.

Since their debut album was released in June 2013, with the lead track “Wolf,” every album they have released has topped the charts.

The recently released repackaged album not only topped music charts in Korea but also grabbed the No. 1 spot on 38 global iTunes albums charts immediately after its release.
