It was just the first comeback, but BTS’s brother group quickly set an impressive record as a 4th generation group.
On the afternoon of April 27, the rookie male group coming out of the survival show I-LAND, ENHYPEN, officially had their first comeback in their career with the title song Drunk-Dazed and the album BORDER: CARNIVAL. The Pop Rock song – Drunk-Dazed with lyrics contains strange emotions that the boys feel for the first time after their debut.
ENHYPEN’s new album has a total of 6 songs. Besides the title song Drunk-Dazed, the remaining songs are: Intro: The Invitation, FEVER, Not For Sale, Mixed Up, Outro: The Wormhole.
ENHYPEN is a group under Belift Lab (a sub-label of HYBE Entertainment). As expected, before its release, the mini-album BORDER: CARNIVAL has exceeded 450,000 pre-order copies. And only on the first day of sale, this mini-album sold 319,073 copies, even surpassed the first week sales of debut album BORDER: DAY ONE. This is the highest number that a 4th generation Kpop group has done so far.
More remarkable, compared to the artists who have debuted/made a comeback in 2021, BTS’s brother group is only behind EXO Baekhyun’s BAMBI L, surpassing BLACKPINK Rosé’s -R- (319,073 copies on 1st day).
Top best-selling album on Hanteo on the first day (from the beginning of 2021 up to now):
1. BAMBI – Baekhyun: 760,154 copies
2. BORDER: CARNIVAL – ENHYPEN: 319.073 copies
