IVE Just Became The Second K-Pop Girl Group Ever To Reach A Huge Hanteo Milestone

They haven’t even been in the industry for a year yet!

Even though IVE debuted less than a year ago and isn’t even from a “Big Four” company, the rookie K-Pop girl group has been making huge waves in the industry!

The Starship Entertainment artist recently had their third comeback with the single album After LIKE and title track of the same name, which came out on August 22.

After LIKE was already set to make major sales after its first day sales numbers were released, which revealed the album had already sold over 460,000 units according to Hanteo. This also broke their previous record which had been made by Love Dive, which made a little over 338,000 copies in the first week.

Their most recent album’s first week sales, by comparison, skyrocketed up to over 920,000 sales, becoming the 22nd best-selling album on Hanteo within the first week of release!

And now, as of the September 2 update, After Like has surpassed one million total album sales, making them the second K-Pop girl group to ever accomplish this on Hanteo.

Aespa is the only other girl group to have reached over one million sales on Hanteo with their album Girls.

On top of this, After LIKE has also surpassed one million album sales according to Circle Chart (formerly Gaon), showing just the kind of K-Pop powerhouse that IVE already is.
