Make way for K-Pop’s monster rookies — ITZY!

JYP Entertainment’s new girl group ITZY took home the trophy during the February 21st episode of M Countdown.

The girls now hold the record of being the girl group to get a first win on a music show the fastest, achieving such feat only nine days after their debut.

The “Dalla Dalla” singers secured the top spot on Mnet’s music show with 8,527 points. They won against MAMAMOO’s Hwasa, who recently made her solo debut with “Twit”.

During their speech, the members thanked the people who helped and supported them.

Additionally, JYP Entertainment’s Park Jin Young shared a video of the girls on Instagram where they told him about their first win and thanked him.

In his caption, the producer congratulated ITZY and also relayed his worries and hopes for the members.

He wrote, “Congrats, girls! But I have to admit that I’m also worried about the speed of your success. The true quality of a star is ‘how long you can maintain your rookie attitude’. So, I hope you don’t lose focus and become an everlasting shining star.”

Composed of Yeji, Lia, Ryujin, Chaeryeong, and Yuna, ITZY debuted on February 12 with the single album It’z Different with “Dalla Dalla” as its title track.

The song peaked at the fifth spot of Gaon’s Digital Chart and at the third spot of Billboard’s World Digital Songs Sales Chart.

Additionally, the song’s music video garnered impressive views at 14 million in its first 24 hours.
