The success of NewJeans’ 2010 single “Ditto” in the UK shows no signs of slowing down. Last week, NewJeans made history when their single “Ditto” debuted at No. 95 on the Official Singles List in the United Kingdom, making them the fastest K-pop girl group to join the chart.
On top of all that, “Ditto” spent its second week in a row on the Official Singles Chart, remaining stable at No. 97 from January 20-26. Of note, NewJeans is the second K-pop female group in history to spend two weeks on the Official Singles Chart (following BLACKPINK).
I think what NewJeans has accomplished is fantastic, so congrats to them!

In the 2000s, the word “K-pop” gained widespread usage, particularly outside of South Korea. Gayo (Hanja, Korean) is still commonly used in South Korea to refer to Korean pop music.
