NewJeans (Minji, Hanni, Danielle, Haerin, Hyein) has made a big splash with their debut in Japan, reaching No. 1 on the Oricon chart right away!

Their Japanese debut single ‘Supernatural‘ topped the ‘Daily Single Ranking‘ on the latest Oricon chart as of June 21.

NewJeans also took over both the Hanteo and Oricon charts on the release day, showing their strong presence in both Korea and Japan.

The single’s title track ‘Supernatural‘ also ranked first on real-time charts of local music sites like Line Music and AWA for two days straight, showing how much fans in Japan love them.

Back in Korea, NewJeans also did great. ‘Supernatural‘ hit 34th on Melon‘s ‘Top 100‘ just an hour after it came out and climbed up to 13th by midnight on June 22. Their other song ‘Right Now‘ also made it onto the chart, showing they’re popular with more than one song.

It’s not common for a Japanese single to do so well on Korean music charts. This shows that NewJeans’ unique style and emotions connect with fans no matter the language. Right now, NewJeans has ten songs on Melon‘s ‘Top 100,’ including ‘Supernatural,’ four new songs from last month’s double single ‘How Sweet,’ and six older hits.

The music video for ‘Supernatural‘ is also getting lots of attention. It has a mystical feel and lively performance that fits the New Jack Swing genre. It was the second most popular music video globally on YouTube as of June 21. It’s popular in Korea (1st), Japan (13th), the United States (16th), and the United Kingdom (32nd).

On June 22, NewJeans performed on Nippon TV‘s ‘with MUSIC,’ showcasing ‘Supernatural,’ ‘Right Now,’ and ‘Bubble Gum.‘ This was the first time they performed ‘Right Now,’ and their setup with tables and chairs was really cool. They’ll also be on TBS‘s ‘CDTV Live! Live!‘ on June 24.
