Now that “Ditto” has entered the “Hot 100” chart, NewJeans has set a new record among Kpop artists, having entered the chart in 6 months – the shortest period since debut for a Kpop artist. 

In addition, with this achievement, New Jeans became the first Kpop 4th generation group to enter Billboard’s “Hot 100”, joining the league of Wonder Girls, PSY, 2NE1 CL, and TWICE.
