JYP Entertainment’s new girl group is already smashing records despite only debuting a month ago!
ITZY, made up of members Yeji, Lia, Ryujin, Yuna, and Chaeryeong, debuted February 12, 2019 with “Dalla Dalla.” Since their debut with their catchy, upbeat track, ITZY has been on fire.

Their MV for “Dalla Dalla” has also performed well on YouTube. As of March 14, 2019, the MV has over 78 million views, so they definitely caught K-Pop fans’ attentions!
Now, ITZY has another honor to add to their young-but-impressive-résumé as they eclipsed first-generation idol group S.E.S’ 22-year-old music-show-win record.
