BLACKPINK has also been nominated the no.1 spot of SBS’s Inkigayo chart for two weeks in a row.
Last week, BLACKPINK won the trophy in just 14 days after its debut and set a new record of taking the no.1 spot on a music show in the shortest time. This week, BLACKPINK’s “WHISTLE” and “BOOMBAYAH” were both nominated for the no.1 spot, and many are wondering whether BLACKPINK will be able to keep the no.1 spot for two consecutive weeks.
BLACKPINK had their debut stage on August 14 on the same music show. After the show was aired, BLACKPINK became the hot topic of various portal websites, and their debut stage video posted high views.
BLACKPINK has achieved astonishing success and writing new history although it is a mere rookie. The group dominated Korea’s music charts upon debut, became no.1 on the iTunes charts of 14 countries, and took the top two spot of Billboard’s World Digital Songs charts.
