After getting long-deserved attention from JR, Ren, Baekho, and Minhyun's appearances on 'Produce 101', the boys' old songs have been shooting up on music charts. It isn't just their songs that are doing well as the boys have pretty much taken over Naver, Korea's biggest search engine.
The boys' videos are currently featured on the front page of Naver. Their dance video for "Look", their MV for "Love Paint", and JR-Minhyun's unit song "Daybreak" MV were on Naver TV's music category.
Even more shockingly, the boys' "Hello", a song from 2012, is now up as a possible candidate for #1 on 'Inkigayo' this week, as their song can be voted for before the live broadcast airs and will be used to determine the ranking. It'll be hard for them to actually get #1 as they'll have no album sales, but it's still an amazing feat.
Congratulations to NU'EST.
