SEOUL (May 15, 2023) - The one and only LE SSERAFIM have yet again proven themselves with their first-ever studio album "UNFORGIVEN" landing at No.6 on the Billboard 200.
Within one year since LE SSERAFIM's (KIM CHAEWON, SAKURA, HUH YUNJIN, KAZUHA, and HONG EUNCHAE) fearless debut, the group has shown unparalleled success while putting out two EPs, one Japanese EP, and their first studio album UNFORGIVEN.
In October last year, LE SSERAFIM became the fastest girl group in the history of K-pop to enter Billboard 200 with their sophomore EP "ANTIFRAGILE" debuting at No.14. With the group’s first studio album "UNFORGIVEN", they are now the fastest girl group in the history of K-pop to enter the top 10 on Billboard 200, earning the title just a year after their debut.
As of last week, LE SSERAFIM reached their new peak on Spotify surpassing 10 million monthly listeners, while the group’s YouTube channel has just exceeded 3 million subscribers.
The quintet’s record-breaking album "UNFORGIVEN" reflects their resolution not to back down in the face of standards set by others in paving their own path. Through the album, LE SSERAFIM makes the bold statement that they will not ask for forgiveness when moving forward in the direction they believe is right.
