The EP and it’s title track have both taken the number one spot on the iTunes Kpop chart. Which is an incredible achievement for a rookie group. The EP also garnered attention in Europe as it reached #5 on the iTunes chart in Russia, and has also charted in Sweden, Austria, The UK, Germany, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Belgium and Switzerland.
Astro also came back on the 16th, after a 14 month hiatus, with their first full-length album ‘All Light’.
At the comeback show, the group expressed their desire to rank #19 on music charts this year, and the group is already showing their potential as the title song ‘All Night’ and the album have both charted in Europe. ‘All Night’ reached #25 in Sweden and #73 in Ireland. The album has peaked at #14 in Denmark, and also charted in Belgium, Russia, Ireland, The Netherlands, The UK, Germany and Italy. The album and title song also both reached #2 on the iTunes Kpop Chart.
Let’s hope we see many more Kpop artists charting in Europe this year, and that both these groups continue to thrive.
