K-pop group ILLIT is making a “magnetic” impression. On March 25, ILLIT, a new five-member girl group from HYBE/BELIFT LAB, officially released their first mini album, SUPER REAL ME.

South Korea‘s Hanteo Chart reported that SUPER REAL ME sold a staggering total of 380,056 copies in the first week of its release (March 25 to 31), setting a new record for the highest sales of a debut album for a girl group to date, reports Soompi. NewJeans, another rookie girl group of HYBE, set the previous record back in August 2022, when their self-titled debut EP “New Jeans” sold 311,271 copies in the first week of its release.

Due to SUPER REAL ME’s record-breaking sales, it not only holds the record for the highest first-week sales of a debut album by a girl group in Hanteo history but has also secured the fifth spot for the highest first-week sales of any debut album. On top of that, the K-pop girl group’s title track, “Magnetic,” entered Spotify’s Daily Top Songs Global chart on its very first day of release, making this a first for any K-pop girl group

Furthermore, in addition to setting a new record for the fastest entry by a K-pop group into Spotify’s Weekly Top Songs Global, the group obtained the highest streaming record on the debut day for any K-pop group, with the song “Magnetic” debuting on the Chinese music streaming service QQ Music. In addition, “Magnetic” has also made it into Billboard’s Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart at #102. It was previously predicted that the group would enter the Hot 100 this week at #99. However, ILLIT didn’t make the list because many US/UK artists dropped new releases in the same week.
