Considering that Baekhyun sold more than one million copies with both a group album and a solo album in the same year, he has eventually earned the title of "double-million seller."

Because of this, EXO Baekhyun is the first artist to become a double-million seller with both group and solo albums since the legendary singer Seo Taiji of the boy group Seo Taiji and Boys.

In addition to this, EXO member Baekhyun got the "double-million seller" as a solo artist with "Delight" and "Bambi."
