    I love when people make premature threads lmao. Glad to see they're doing so well. I knew they'd start rising with time.

    Keep supporting, Orbits <3

    Ppl use the word flop very lightly, I see nice numbers for a debut group, but after such a long time of fuss around them I did expected for them to do better tbh.

    Agreed. This isn't comparable to a basic debut-I mean after two years of hype and 9 million dollars of predebut investment and marketing you would hope for charting on some of the major Korean streaming sites.

    Oh, so coming from Cube didn't give them advantage??
    I thought (and it's true) G-idle has done better overall...

    Probably peopel compare them because they are one of sucessful rookies.

    Soyeon being on shows helped a lot too.

    Great achievements, makes me proud!
    On that note though,
    Is this a benchmark or something? Why is MelOn so important? Have nugu group even managed to debut on the top 100 of MelOn before? Or only new groups from known companies?

    Edit: I had a bit more of a look, and from what I understand the MelOn chart captures an approx 50% market. Though it still stands, has a debut nugu group managed to place on top 100 in the past?

    Yeah, LOONA come from a well known company with so many iconic sunbaenims as brand value.

    The biggest problem with this is - they didn't had predebut since 2016 as Loona but as Loona yyxy, Loona OEC, Loona 1/3, Loona as soloists, some people only like 1 sub unit, some people only like solos. If they released songs as 12 from day one they would probably have more fans imo.

    With sub units it's a problem that sometimes people lik ethem mor ethan group itself. The best examples for me are tts & orange caramel, where idgaf much about groups itself but sub units are amazing (and for solos I only like Jessica & Taeyeon when group songs don't interest me at all).

    People still have to get used to them as 12.

    This legit wasn't shade, it was an actual question, nugu groups tend to actually do better on day 2-3 on MelOn than day 1-so I knew Loona didn't get top 100 yesterday-but was interested to see have they rose up or w/e.

    All good, sorry I was a bit defensive, been a bit of a crazy day of people basically saying Loona flopped when it has been only 1 day since debut (talk about high expectations for a group they don't stan..) I haven't seen any movement onto MelOn, but I'm hopeful they will rise once they start formal promotions.

    Regardless of MelOn they are doing real well on Hanteo and they are the type of group I can see having quick concerts anyway so they will do well in that area and eventually they'll likely start entering streaming charts too.

    Well IDLE is the top or the standard for 2018 Rookie Girl Groups right now so I guess it's okay to compare to them.

    It's been open season on LOONA this past day so I can see why Orbits are on full defense mode lol
