“Super Real Me,” the debut mini-album of rookie K-pop girl group ILLIT, has reached new heights as it landed on the Billboard 200 at the 93rd rank.

The mini-album debuted at No. 93 on the Billboard 200 chart — which ranks 200 of the most popular records and extended plays (or EPs) in the US — dated May 11.


ILLIT’s milestone comes a month after the EP’s title track “Magnetic” made its debut on the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 91 in April. This is the fastest time a female K-pop artist entered the particular chart, and was even done with a debut song.


In a statement from Belift, the girl group “shattered records” following their recent debut, with “Magnetic” nabbing the No. 12 spot on the Billboard Global 200 and retaining its position for six consecutive weeks. It also entered the No. 6 spot on the Billboard Global Excl. US charts.

“On album sales, the quintet sold over 380,000 copies of their four-track debut album and set a new record for the highest first-week sales for a debut album by female K-Pop artists,” the label added.

“Super Real Me” consists of four tracks: “My World,” “Magnetic,” “Midnight Fiction” and “Lucky Girl Syndrome.”

ILLIT’s milestone comes on the heels of accusations of their concept being allegedly similar to K-pop girl group NewJeans, which is under another HYBE sub-label All Doors One Room (ADOR). Despite this, the controversy seemingly unnerved the rookie girl group.

ILLIT, which debuted in March 2024, is composed of Yunah, Minju, Wonhee, Moka and Iroha. The girl group was formed through the survival show “R U Next?”
