VII. Domestic Achievements
by Jaybee (@jaybee238)
BLACKPINK was surely missed as the support domestically in Korea has been so warm and overwhelming since. As soon as their mini album dropped, they’ve gained so much attention and recognition, even gathering 1,015,669 unique listeners in MelOn on its first 24 hours, the best record in 2018 for girl groups. They are basically the talk of the town these days and is clearly validated through recent surveys, polls, and brand reputation research. DDU-DU DDU-DU, with its addicting beats, lyrics and choreography, has been receiving unexpected love and remains high on charts despite being released almost 2 months now. The track’s popularity even extends to music shows where it has received a total of 11 wins with triple crowns on SBS Inkigayo & Mnet M!Countdown and a quadruple crown on MBC Music Core. Forever Young, a b-side track, is also doing relatively well keeping its position even with new songs dropping everyday. Check out the more of BLACKPINK’s achievements in the Korean music scene below!
