Among rookie girl groups, aespa and STAYC are having the most outstanding achievements.
Right now, Kpop has entered the 4th generation with many new rookie Idol group. In an article that is receiving much attention on Theqoo, the topic talks about 2 of the best performing gen 4 girl group recently: Aespa and STAYC
The poster pointed out that both aespa and STAYC had very good comebacks when it came to digital achievements on Melon. Accordingly, STAYC’s ‘ASAP’ ranked 16th and aespa’s ‘Next Level’ ranked 7th in Melon Daily chart.
However, although STAYC does not have a good digital music ranking as aespa, they receive more attention from Knet. The reason is because aespa is from SM Entertainment, a famous entertainment company, while STAYC debut from a small company, so it took more effort to be known.
