After competing with 28 trainees on 'YG Treasure Box', long drought, and a member loss, the next scenario happened on TREASURE is what fans didn't see coming!
1. TREASURE debuting at #40, #39, #19, #18 on Billboard Social 50
This newest boy group from YG Entertainment enterted the Billboard Social Chart not just once, not twice, even thrice... but FOUR times before debuting! Their name appeared first on late-May this year until it re-entered on June and got its peak on July at #18.
2. Bang Yedam inventing the word "First" with 'WAYO'
TREASURE main vocalist Bang Yedam launched his pre-debut solo single 'WAYO' last June 5. At its first 24 hours, it bags several achievements:
Yedam being the first ever 2020 rookie artist to land on iTunes Worldwide Song Top 20, sitting at #19, iTunes Global Digital Artist at #88 and Billboard Digital Songs at #10.
On the other hand, WAYO also swept the iTunes chart in 10 countries, ranking at #1.

They set the record within 69 days, with an almost 2-month gap from X1 who had it 10 days before their debut.

TREASURE set a back-to-back record after their debut single album The First Step: Chapter One reached 20,000 on its first day and 100,000 pre-order sales in just 2 days.
They broke the inter-agency record as the highest debut album sales among YG artist and the 2020 rookie highest first week sales, beating CRAVITY's Season 1 Hideout: Remember Who We Are with 52,000 pre-order.
6. Most Liked V LIVE Broadcast of a 4th Generation Idol
