Group Treasure is achieving the shortest and best records of K-pop rookie artists this year on YouTube.
According to YG Entertainment, Treasure's music video "BOY" surpassed 20 million views on YouTube around 12p.m. on August 14.
This was achieved in less than a week after its release at 6 p.m. on the 7th. Since the music video for "BOY" surpassed 10 million views in 26 hours, it has been on a steady rise, drawing attention from global fans.
Choreography video is popular as well. The choreography video of "BOY," which was released on the 10th, is moving towards 3 million views just in four days after its release, and it is unusual for a rookie to have such a high number of views on not only music videos, but also choreography videos.
The global popularity of Treasure has already been shown in many objective figures. It has achieved remarkable results on both domestic and foreign music charts, further anticipating its move as a global idol group.
Treasure is especially popular in the Japanese market. Treasure's title track "BOY" ranked No.1 on all top 100 charts of Line Music, the real-time ranking of Rakuten Music, and the AWA surge chart on the release date. 'Boy' is still ranking No.1 in the top 100 daily charts of Line Music, for the past three consecutive days.
In addition, Treasure's first single album "THE FIRST STEP: CHAPTER ONE" released on the 13th, recorded the highest record sales among K-pop rookies who debuted this year, topping the Hanteo Chart album category.
Meanwhile, Treasure is a big rookie group announced by YG after four years since the debut of BLACKPINK. The group consists of 12 members: Choi Hyun-suk, Ji Hoon, Yoshi, Jun Kyu, Mashiho, Yoon Jae-hyuk, Asahi, Bang Ye-dam, Doyoung, Haruto, Park Jung-woo and So Jung-hwan. Their debut song, "BOY," had heralded an unusual sensation by topping iTunes' top song charts in 19 countries on the first day of its release.
