October 4 marked a new era for Kpop fans worldwide as SuperM debuted their first single after a summer long tease with clips, images and interviews. The newest (and oldest, depending on how you look at it) Kpop group on the block had arrived and meant business.
Comprised of seven members, the boy band is made up of four of the most impactful and successful Kpop groups in the industry. In terms of Mergers and Acquisitions, SuperM just became a monopoly.
With the release of ‘Jopping,’ SuperM’s first official single, a mini-album was made available for purchase on their website and on all streaming platforms.
And, all of their hard work, promo and marketing paid off this week when their mini-album “SuperM – The First Mini-Album” debuted at Number One on the Billboard 200, marking them the second Kpop group in history (BTS, we’re lookin’ at you baes) to do so.
The band quickly took to social media to celebrate and thank their fans for the monumental accomplishment.
This is a huge step for Kpop, with SuperM hoping to become ambassadors for the genre in the West. What do you think? Have you been ‘Jopping’ your way into the fandom? Let us know in the comments below, or by tweeting us @THPMag!
