K-pop boy band EXO was selected as this year’s best seller among K-pop artists by a major Japanese music store on Monday.

The rookie group topped Tower Records’ “2014 K-pop Best Sellers 20” chart with its second EP, “Overdose,” outshining veteran idol groups Big Bang, Super Junior and TVXQ.

Tower Records, Japan’s largest online music store, highly praised the band for its unique music that has “intoxicated” fans around the globe.
“EXO firmly established its own identity,” said the music store.

Junho, a member of the boy group 2PM, snatched the No. 2 spot with his solo album “FEEL.”

Popular girl group Girls’ Generation’s “The Best” landed in third place, followed by TVXQ’s “TVXQ Vol. 7” and SHINee’s “I’m Your Boy.”
