Rookie girl group aespa's latest EP "Girls" sold more than 1.64 million copies last month, setting a record as the most-sold album by any K-pop girl group, the band's agency said Thursday.

Released on July 8, "Girls" topped the monthly album sales chart of Korea's benchmark Circle Chart for July by selling 1,645,255 copies.

It marks the largest monthly and accumulated album sales that have been achieved by any K-pop girl group, according to SM Entertainment.

The album was also received well in overseas markets, including the United States where it reached No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart. (Yonhap)
