Boy group EXO took first place in the US and globally at the 10th TOP TEN AWARDS (TTA)
Hosted by Ten Asia, “TTA” is an event where K-pop fans from 10 regions, including Korea, the US, the UK, Mexico, China, Japan, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines, vote online and via mobile to determine the best artists.
EXO released their 7th full-length album “EXIST” in July this year. The album surpassed 1.07 million copies in sales on the day of its release, according to Hanteo Chart, with a first-week sales figure of 1,562,649 copies.
Despite a comeback after 3 years and 7 months, EXO showcased their enduring power as the title track “Cream Soda” secured first place on music shows without promotional activities.
EXO’s leader Suho recently gained recognition as an actor under the name Kim Jun-myeon through JTBC’s drama “Behind Your Touch”. “Behind Your Touch” marks Suho’s return to the acting scene after starting his military service as a public service worker in 2020 and completing it in February last year.
