The number of subscribers to their official YouTube channel exceeded 2 million in 129 days, the shortest record for a K-pop girl group, even before their official debut, and currently exceeds 3.19 million. The cumulative number of content views is more than 450 million. The US Billboard selected them as ‘K-pop artists to watch’ and predicted that they would “create a new wave in the K-pop genre.”
