Thai fans immediately took to Twitter to express their excitement:
Aside from Thailand, NewJeans’ debut EP also topped the iTunes charts in nine different regions including South Korea, Indonesia, Finland, and Russia. The K-Pop group also made history by debuting at No. 20 on the Melon chart, the highest chart entry of any girl group in three years.
NewJeans is a quintet act made up of members Minji, Hyein, Danielle, Haerin, and Hanni. They are the latest girl group formed by HYBE, the same agency that launched K-Pop stars BTS, Enhyphen, and Tomorrow X Together.
