The data gathered regarding the pre-order numbers and the Google searches only seem to confirm this even further, as the group is currently at the centre of Worldwide talks.”

“These numbers are not only a testament to the group’s great beginning but also a prediction of their shining future, as pre-orders and support only seem destined to grow as the group solidifies itself as a pillar of a newer and fresher generation of K-pop artists”.
