With their new album "BORDER: CARNIVAL," ENHYPEN has become the second fourth-generation K-pop group to stay on the Billboard 200 chart for more than a week, proving its constant popularity in the United States.
Billboard 200 is one of the major music charts around the world and ranks 200 extended plays and albums based on their total sales (digital and retail) in the US for a particular week.
ENHYPEN Is Now the Second Fourth-Generation Group to Chart on Billboard 200 More Than Once
On June 1, all of the Billboard charts for the week ending on June 5 have been released. On the Billboard 200 chart, ENHYPEN is one of the K-pop groups that were able to secure a spot.
With their comeback album "BORDER: CARNIVAL," ENHYPEN claimed the No. 190 position, becoming the last entry of K-pop groups on the US chart.
Previously, "BORDER: CARNIVAL" debuted at No. 18 on Billboard 200 for the week ending on May 29. This is the first time the rookie group landed on the chart, and this makes ENHYPEN the only K-pop act that debuted in 2020 to be included on the rankings.
Other than this, ENHYPEN "BORDER: CARNIVAL" scored the highest rank among K-pop albums released this year that entered Billboard 200. It is also the second-highest-ranking to be reached by a Korean group this year, following BTS who scored the No. 7 spot in March with their 2020 album, "BE."
Considering that the rookie group secured a spot on Billboard 200 for two consecutive weeks, ENHYPEN has now become the second fourth-generation K-pop group to achieve this milestone.
The first one to do so is Big Hit Music's five-member boy group, TXT. The quintet landed on the Billboard 200 chart twice with their 2020 album "minisode1: Blue Hour."

This achievement is more meaningful given that ENHYPEN is only a six-month group, yet they can join their senior group, BTS, on Billboard 200.
