AESPA FIRST PAK: aespa Obtains First-Ever Perfect All-Kill on Korean Music Charts with 'Savage'
Since their debut in November of last year, aespa ranked high on various Korean music charts with every release: "Black Mamba," "Forever," "Next Level," and "Savage."
SM Entertainment's new girl group also succeeds in topping different domestic charts every now and then, but they barely secure the No. 1 spot on all charts at the same time, until today.
On Oct. 15 at 1:30 p.m. KST, iChart announced that aespa's "Savage" has officially attained a perfect all-kill on Korean music charts.
A song receives a perfect all-kill when it ranked first on the daily and real-time charts of Genie and Bugs, the real-time chart of FLO, VIBE's daily chart, and iChart's real-time and weekly charts.
"Savage" becomes aespa's first-ever song since their debut to attain a perfect all-kill in South Korea.
Because of this, aespa becomes the latest artist to score a perfect all-kill this year, following IU, Brave Girls, BTS, MSG Wannabe, Canadian singer Justin Bieber, and The Kid LAROI.
In addition to this, aespa becomes the fourth-fastest girl group to obtain their first perfect all-kill in history, doing so in only 10 months. The quartet surpassed Miss A, who achieved the feat after a year since their debut.
