The K-pop scene is getting more exciting than ever with talented new groups and the return of famous groups. 

After approximately 9 hours of receiving orders, BLACKPINK’s “Born Pink” reached 84 thousand pre-order albums on Ktown4U. This made them the girl group with the highest pre-order figures in 24 hours on this platform. After that, BLACKPINK hit another impressive record of 140 pre-order albums.

After 2 years of absence, BLACKPINK returns and breaks in various domestic and international music charts. They are ready to show off their prowess before other “heavyweight opponents.” On August 19th, BLACKPINK is releasing its title track, “Pink Venom.”

On July 26th, 2022, NewJeans succeeded with their exact name album, which reached 81 thousand pre-order albums in 24 hours on Ktown4U. This milestone resonated because the group surpassed second and third-generation idol groups such as Girls’ Generation and TWICE.

Since their debut, NewJeans has continuously taken up airtime, leaving strong impressions of their appearance and talent. All 5 members are highly regarded for their energy and dynamics. Their latest releases, “Attention,” “Cookie” and “Hurt,” all achieve high rankings on music charts.

Recently, aespa released their second mini album in their career titled “Girls.” According to Ktown4U, the SM girl group received a whopping figure of 78 thousand pre-orders on their first day. That time, they broke BLACKPINK’s record in 2020 with their album release “THE ALBUM.” Currently, however, aespa falls in third place after NewJeans and BLACKPINK.

Speaking of “THE ALBUM,” this is proof of BLACKPINK’s expanding influence. Released in 2020, the album recorded a 41-thousand pre-orders in 24 hours. After two consecutive years, this achievement has not met any rivals. Currently, BLACKPINK breaks their record with the pre-order figure for “Born Pink” twice that of “THE ALBUM.”

TWICE also garners amazing achievement with 36 thousand pre-orders for their album “Between 1&2” on Ktown4U. This is the group’s 11th mini album, to be released on August 26th, 2022. Since their debut, the girl group has also consistently performed in the music race. Now that TWICE has renewed its contract with JYP, the group will continue working with its full force and treat the audience with incredible music products.
