The rookies, IVE from Starship Entertainment are showing no signs of stopping and it is not their fault. The K-pop industry is at its all-time peak and the rise of newly debuted groups is the talk of the town. With monster rookies like aespa and Enhypen first breaking records all around the world within the first year of their debut, something much bigger was the need of the hour, and IVE is promising that with the success of their debut single, ‘Eleven’.

IVE, the six-member girl group made their debut on December 1, and not even a month since their debut, the group has already bagged not one but five music show wins with their debut single. The song ‘Eleven’ from IVE was released as a single album and had initially made the news for being mentioned by Forbes magazine for their amazing success over the last few weeks be it in terms of sales or in terms of charting by making an entry in the international chart, Billboard days after their debut.

IVE 5th win

Over the period of the last 20 days, IVE has been bagging trophies one after another. The six-member girl group bagged their first music show win with their performance of ‘Eleven’ on December 8, merely a week after their debut at MBC’s ‘Show Champion’. The group then won their second music show win, days after at SBS’ ‘The Show’ on December 14. Then IVE bagged their third career win on December 15 at MBC’s ‘Show Champion’ again.

IVE then showed steady progress by winning their fourth music show title at KBS’ ‘Music Bank’ on December 17 and now have recorded their fifth music show win at MBC’s ‘Music Core’ as of December 18, 2021. For their recent successes, IVE have been sharing video messages thanking Dives (their fandom) for their constant support which has enabled the rookie group to reach such unimaginable heights.


Member Wonyoung who presented the group with their fourth win as the host and MC of KBS’ ‘Music Bank’ on December 17 said in her message to Dives, “We were able to win the first place with such an honor. Thank you very much, Dive, and I am proud to be able to give the trophy to the members as the MC of ‘Music Bank’. Let's meet again with good news next time.”


IVE’s scary growth

The pace at which IVE is slowly moving to the top is unrivaled and scary yet well-deserving for the rookie group with hardworking trainees and ex-members of IZ*ONE. IVE debuted with the single, ‘ELEVEN’, and is continuing with an unprecedented record streak as a rookie group in the industry. Their debut album, ‘Eleven’ not only achieved sales of 150,000 copies in the first week alone but also consistently maintained the top spot on major domestic music sites.

Not only that, but IVE made their debut on not one but two Billboard charts like Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. with ‘Eleven’ proving their monstrous rise to the top within days of their debut. IVE has also appeared on various charts such as Spotify's ‘Global Top 200’ chart, China's largest music chart by QQ Music, Japan's chart, Line Music, and Billboard Japan’s chart, breaking records day after day and making unstoppable progress days after debuting.


As of December 18, IVE has ranked at Number 3 on Bugs Chart, Number 4 on FLO Chart, Number 6 on MelOn Chart, and Number 6 on Genie’s Chart.
