ONEUS bags their first-ever music show win, fans say ‘great things take time’
The K-pop group ONEUS made their comeback with their sixth mini-album, ‘Blood Moon’ on November 9 and appeared on KBS’ ‘Music Bank’ to perform their track on the music show on November 12. Following their performance for ‘Luna’ (also known as Wolha Beauty), the group recorded amazing responses from fans as they were soon dubbed as ‘stage genius’ by giving an undisputed performance. One thing that was still impending was that the group have their first music show win.
ONEUS debuted in the year 2018 but after multiple lineup changes while their 2018 debut was not as fruitful as one may wish, the group came through with their first mini-album, ‘Light Us’ that was released in January of 2019. ONEUS made not just one but three comebacks in the year 2019 but the group was yet to have a music show win. ONEUS released a single album as well as their fourth mini-album in 2020 titled, ‘Lived’ and then finally came out with their first studio album, ‘Devil’ in January of 2021 followed by their fifth mini-album, ‘Binary Code’ and now their most recent release, ‘Blood Moon’.
‘Luna’ first win, ONEUS first win!
This album sure will go down in the history of ONEUS’ career. ONEUS appeared on MBC’s ‘Show Champion’ on November 17 and took the first win in their career of two years and ten months following their debut. Ever since their debut To Moon’s (ONEUS Fandom) has been trying their best to get the group to the top for them to be able to grab a music show win. But now it looks like the group has finally received its due recognition.
After ONEUS members took their first win in their careers as a group, they were extremely emotional as the six members hugged each other on stage bursting into tears. Xion, the group's vocalist said, “I still can't believe that we won the first place here since our debut. This feels like a dream.” He thanked his family members first and then thanked the RBW staff, the label that manages the activities of the group. In a special mention, he thanked fans saying, “...and thank you to the world's most beloved Two Moons.” RAVN the group's lead rapper also took the opportunity to thank fans as he said, “Starting with this first place, we will write a new and positive history in the future.”
The success of ‘Blood Moon’
With only two days following the release of their music video for ‘Luna’, ONEUS recorded a new high. The music video for ‘Luna’ or as translated, ‘Beauty under the Moon’ video crossed 10 million views under 48 hours of its release and now is soaring high towards 15 million-plus views for the group.
This achievement made ‘Luna’ the fastest music video from ONEUS to record such high view counts. Not only that, but ONEUS is also attracting a lot of fans as their album, ‘Blood Moon’ has been recording remarkable results. The new album from ONEUS sold more than 130,000 copies within three days of its release, exceeding the last Chodong records.
