NewJeans’ first encore stage: The members were visibly anxious, Hanni received the most praise 

Overall, NewJeans did a standard encore performance. 

On January 15th, the music program Inkigayo officially took place with the competition among three sensational songs: ANTIFRAGILE (LE SSERAFIM), Ditto (NewJeans), OMG (NewJeans). Having two songs nominated, it suffices to say that NewJeans is a “monster rookie.” As expected, NewJeans won with “OMG.”
