With TREASURE’s official debut in Japan just 15 days away, local media and fans’ interests in the group are heightening every day.
According to YG Entertainment on the 16th, TREASURE’s pre-released song for their Japanese debut album, “BOY”, has been ranked first for six consecutive days on Line Music Daily Chart, Japan’s largest music platform.
The responses were exuberant for the Japanese versions of “BOY”, “I LOVE YOU”, “MMM”, and “MY TREASURE” which were pre-released on the 10th. “BOY” reached the top of the charts within an hour, and other songs also entered the top of the list, once again proving the rapid rise of TREASURE’s popularity.
The interest from the Japanese media is also on the rise. Their expectations for TREASURE’s debut in Japan have been made evident as Fuji TV’s Mr. Sunday and Nippon TV’s Sukkiri screened videos of their past audition process, them as trainees, their current activities as a global rookie group, and interviews.
Members of TREASURE said in an interview that they are looking forward to their debut in Japan thanks to the support of Japanese fans. “Our goal is to have a world tour with all 12 members,” they stated. As the group is set to debut in Japan on March 31st, they have been launching various local promotions, including a pop-up store at Shibuya 109 on the 12th.
