Rookie band aespa set a record with its second EP Girls.

The EP sold more than 1 million copies in the first week of sales, a first for a girl group in K-pop history.

The album consists of nine songs including titular track and its first English-language song Life’s Too Short which was dropped in advance to the full release.

The quintet “has been surrounded by a lot of buzz since its debut ... but the root of it all is the music,” said a Rolling Stone article recently, adding that it is time to “realize that the girls make it work.”

Expectations are high for the EP as to what result it will reap at Billboard chart next week. Its first EP Savage from last year debuted at Billboard 200 at No. 20, a record for a debut album put out by a K-pop girl group. – The Korea Herald/Asia News Network
