Super Rookie KPOP group ITZY tops major music chart in 10 days after debut

Girl band ITZY has taken K-pop fans by surprise by reaching the summit of one of the nation’s major music charts only 10 days after its debut.

Korea’s music-only cable network Mnet said Thursday the five-member band had conquered its “M COUNTDOWN” chart with “Dalla Dalla.” Such a quick rise to the top is unusual and the band’s ranking on other charts will be announced in the coming days.

ITZY, comprised of Yeji, Lia, Ryujin, Chaeryeong and Yuna, is JYP’s first all-girl group after TWICE, which debuted in 2015. The team differentiates itself from TWICE with a “girl crush” concept, taking aim at same-gender music consumers.

It released its first digital single album “IT’z Different” on Feb. 11. The music video of the lead track “Dalla Dalla” had garnered over 55 million views as of Friday.
