YG new group WINNER hit a home run after their debut. With a strong fan base, they were able to top the online music charts with not only their title song but the rest of their songs in their album.

These results were from a fan base the members had even before their debut. WINNER was on a survival program before debut and won the show to earn their ticket to debut.

Their fan base was built for many reasons.

One was being on the opening stages for the other artists in YG for their concerts. They had a lot of experiences on stage even before their official debut stage.

Another was the fact that two of the members were from audition shows including "Superstar K" and "Kpop Star."

Lee Seung Hoon took fourth on the show "Kpop Star" and Kang Seung Yoon also placed in the show, "Superstar K" at a young age. Kang Seung Yoon also had his own solo album as well as being on the show, "High Kick!"

The familiar faces in WINNER is a big contributing factor for their current early popularity.

Lastly, their title of being a part of YG Family and being the little brothers of BIG BANG also gives them more value to their name.

In addition, the CEO of YG, Yang Hyun Suk has shown confidence of the new group.

WINNER also attracted attention with their recent participation in their title song. Song Min Ho wrote the lyrics and Kang Seung Yoon was the main producer of the song.

Their skills and strong background is helping them be the hottest debut group as of now.

WINNER will have their official debut stage at the 'AIA REAL LIFE: NOW FESTIVAL 2014' with the YG Family.
