    WE ALL were super thirsty for our homegirls big comeback but did y'all expect them to break so many records with such huge numbers?

    It starts with YT views, goes on with PAKs, strong physical sales, over a million UL, still reaching around 800k UL each day, charting in the Billboards, #1 in Korea, hitting #1 in so many countries on iTunes, amazing amount of music show wins, B-side charting on #2,...

    We all know how popular they are international and that they are hyped since it's a YG group, but their fanbase in Korea was comparatively very small. Also they were on a one year hiatus while only released 5 songs before.

    Tbh I didn't expect much in terms of success for this comeback but they exceeded all my expectations.
    I'm so proud of these 4 rich, beautiful, talented ladies.

    i did. everyone complained about the hiatus but its worked for YG many times before
    having to wait for a year means i'll buy whatever is thrown at me even if it's just an auto-tuned queef on loop

    I knew it would happen. Adele did the same thing starving people for nearly 5 years then smashing every record imaginable even though she released a really mediocre album after all of that wait.

    When you build up a fanbase of rabid fans and then starve them for a whole year, they're gonna go crazy when there's finally some content to consume. If this same exact song was released Fall 2017 we wouldn't be seeing the same results. It would be a successful comeback ofc but nowhere near this magnitude.

    I think this was a one time trick for YG though and BP will be on a normal release schedule from now on. Comebacks every few months.

    blinks and bp were put in a tough position imo because the anticipation for the comeback was just so huge. they had to make enough impact to show it was all worth the wait. there's so much they had to prove considering there's so many people who wanted to see them fall

    i was confident they'd do well, but i didn't expect them to do this well

    To be real watching their YouTube views skyrocket was really exhilarating for me and this is exactly what BP needed. They shut down the haters and completely proved themselves and I think a lot of people were scared of this happening and to be honest I hope the girls and the fans relish in this victory.

    Me too. As an example I thought Blinks who said that they would break Fake Love's record were delulu but blinks who said they would only record 15m views too, haha :teeheek:

    I'm waiting to see Blackpink's album sales before judging if the comeback was successful or not

    Yes I did for this exact reason. You don't just have an explosive debut and then leave the fandom on read for a year and NOT expect the fans to go rabid for when they return. They're gonna go all out for this comeback probably in hopes that this will encourage YG to give them more frequent ones (which I will admit that I hope so too :oops:) based off how well he did with this one.

    In conclusion, thirsty fandoms = success in some cases

    It did look unbeatable TBH... but BLINKATION was a sleeping dragon... we all knew the fanbase was growing even during hiatus but did not expect such big impact... I think in the last hours of first 24 hours we went all out because we realized that we could beat the views.

    178K in Gaon for 10 days - only TWICE topped that number.
    if that is still a flop for you - then you are calling every girl group's comeback apart from the one mentioned to be flops.
    thank you
