LE SSERAFIM and (G)I-DLE enter Billboard 200 for the first time


According to the Billboard's latest chart released on November 1 KST, LE SSERAFIM's comeback album "ANTIFRAGILE" will be ranked 14th on the Billboard 200 chart on November 5. (G)I-DLE's fifth mini album "I love" will also be ranked 71st.

Both are seen as very meaningful results in that they entered the Billboard main chart for the first time since their debut.

Through the first entry into the Billboard 200, LE SSERAFIM set a new record of entering the chart in the shortest time since debut among K-pop girl groups. LE SSERAFIM, who debuted with "FEARLESS" in May, is also leading to the success of new album "ANTIFRAGILE." In addition, LE SSERAFIM continued to perform well in detailed charts, including 42nd on the Billboard Global Excl. US chart, 8th on the Billboard World Digital Song Sales Chart, and 79th on the Billboard Global 200 chart.

On the other hand, (G)I-DLE's first debut in the Billboard 200 is unique in that it is a feat achieved four years after their debut. (G)I-DLE, who announced their comeback with "I love" seven months after their first full length album "I NEVER DIE" released in March, had high expectations after their previous mega-hit song "TOMBOY." Reflecting this, new album title song "Nxde" still maintains the top and ranks high on major music sites in Korea, and the pre-orders for the album have reached 700,000 copies, far exceeding 170,000 copies of "TOMBOY."
