SM Entertainment has taken the time to step forward in order to address some of the questions and concerns regarding EXO’s upcoming repackaged album! A representative from SM Entertainment released a statement on July 7th saying, "EXO's repackage album is currently in discussion; however, nothing is finalized yet."
At a recent fan signing event however, EXO member Sehun released some details himself about the repackaged album, hinting at the release date by saying, "It's likely in August."
EXO is a South Korean-Chinese boy group based in Seoul. Formed by S.M. Entertainment in 2011, the group debuted in 2012 with twelve members separated into two subgroups, Exo-K and Exo-M, performing music in Korean and Mandarin, respectively. Exo rose to fame with the release of their best-selling first album XOXO (2013), which contained the breakthrough hit "Growl". XOXO was a critical and commercial success, winning both Disk Daesang at the 28th Golden Disk Awards and Album of the Year at the 15th Mnet Asian Music Awards. It eventually went on to sell over one million copies, putting Exo as the best-selling Korean artist in twelve years and earning them the title of "King of Male Idol Groups" for achieving such a feat as rookies.
