Produce 101 Season 2 ended a few days ago, with NU'EST member Minhyun managing to finish with the top 11 and thus winning the right to debut in the temporary boy group Wanna One. However, Minhyun's success and the end of Produce 101 has resulted in another surprise - the resurgence of NU'EST on the Korean music charts!
In the early hours of June 17, shortly after the final episode of Produce 101 Season 2 had aired, 6 of NU'EST's songs - "Thank You", "Look", "Overcome", "Love Paint", "Daybreak", "Hello", and "FACE" - managed to top the Melon Music Chart, taking up the top 6 spots. At the time of writing, "Hello" is still holding strong in the Melon Music Chart at No.4.
It's not just NU'EST's back catalogue of music that's experiencing a resurgence. The group's official fan cafe membership numbers have been rapidly increasing over the past few weeks, and has currently topped out at at over 52,000 members (and is still continuing to rise)!
Membership numbers were originally around the 25,000 mark at the beginning of May, but has since steadily increased as NU'EST received more exposure due to their appearance on Produce 101.
A huge congrats to NU'EST for this second wave of popularity, and we hope that it continues on for some time!
