YG Entertainment continues to prove its legacy in the Korean music industry.
In the first half of 2018, iKON broke a record that no K-pop group and solo artist had achieved in the past years.
It’s the first time in Korean music industry that a group remained #1 for 204 hours on all Korean music charts.
After five months since Love Scenario‘s debut, iKON’s song is still in the top 20 on all Korean music charts.
iKON’s Love Scenario also achieved the #1 spot on Gaon Digital Chart for 6 weeks, most weeks recorded by a Korean artist.
Love Scenario was also the fastest Korean song to reach 100 million streams.
New K-pop fans are surprised of iKON’s amazing achievements that despite being a two-year-old group with a small fandom and the fact that they didn’t have vacation or rest from doing tours for two years since debut, iKON still managed to become Billboard Korea’s #1 Korean song in the first half of 2018.
Meanwhile, iKON’s sister group, Blackpink, is creating their own records as well.
Blackpink becomes the fastest girl group to get 100 million views on YouTube.
Just 10 days after its release, Blackpink’s Ddu-Du Ddu-Du already received more than 100 million views.
Blackpink is a one-year-old group from YG Entertainment.
Despite being a new group, they are already one of the most successful Korean groups in history.
