Enhypen Ties SuperM And Big Bang For The Fifth-Most Billboard 200 Albums Among K-Pop Boy Bands

2021 has been an incredibly exciting year for Enhypen, one of the newest and hottest names in the K-pop industry. The boy band only debuted in late 2020, and in less than a full 12 months, they’ve gone from homegrown favorites to one of the most successful South Korean acts to chart in the U.S. Now, with a second win to their credit on the most important albums ranking in America, the troupe has proved that not only are they ones to watch, they’re rapidly becoming more and more successful.

On this week’s Billboard 200, Billboard’s ranking of the most-consumed EPs and albums in the U.S., Enhypen’s first full-length Dimension: Dilemma opens at No. 11, missing out on becoming the band’s debut top 10 by a single spot. While it’s a bit surprising to see the release come so close to the important region and fail to enter, the project does help Enhypen make history on the chart nonetheless.

Dimension: Dilemma is Enhypen’s second album to appear on the Billboard 200, and while there have been many artists from South Korea that have reached the list, the number of all-male vocal acts that have done so more than once is still fairly low. In fact, Enhypen is now tied with two other names from the K-pop world to land on the tally several times.

Enhypen first reached the Billboard 200 this spring with their sophomore EP Border: Carnival, which rose to No. 18. The band’s debut EP Border: Day One missed the ranking entirely, but it did launch an incredible career.

At the moment, Enhypen is tied with both SuperM and Big Bang, two other South Korean boy bands that have appeared on the Billboard 200 twice. Of the two, SuperM is the more successful, as the supergroup has hit No. 1 and No. 2 with their only two collections. Big Bang helped K-pop break in America, as they landed on the list in 2012 and 2016, but they never climbed higher than No. 150.

BTS are far and away the most successful South Korean boy band in U.S. history, especially when looking at the Billboard 200. The septet has placed 14 different collections on the ranking, with half a dozen of those breaking into the top 10 (and all but one reaching No. 1). 

Three South Korean boy groups are tied for the second-most Billboard 200 placements, with Exo, NCT 127 and Tomorrow X Together all claiming four charting titles, with that sum improving all the time.
