Over the past year, Le Sserafim have amazed audiences. After achieving an initial modest success with their debut single Fearless, the group quickly improved in their success following their latest release, Antifragile. Subseqently, they have brought about a wave of interest. They are also now frequently cited for being a strong contender amongst the stiff competition in girl groups.
However, what’s being achieved by the group is not completely new. In terms of charting, we can compare Le Sserafim’s current success to T-ara who returned similar results on the charts with their first two releases: Lies (Part 1) and Bo Peep Bo Peep.
For example, on MelOn:
Fearless and Lies (Part 1) eventually entered the Top 10 at #9 and #7 respectively on the monthly digital chart.
Antifragile and Bo Peep Bo Peep also achieved the same peak position of #3 for two consecutive months. Both also achieved the same peak of #2 on the weekly chart.
More recently, the group have been praised for their energy and diverse performances they bring to end-of-year festivals. For example, MMA and SBS Gayo Daejeon. So, it’s likely they can become a likely contender for the top spot this year on the country’s biggest music platform, MelOn.
Only time will tell but all we know is that better things are yet to come for the quintet.
