Apink hit a bit of a rough patch last year when their single, "Only One," under-performed on the charts compared to their previous releases. However, the group's latest comeback is proving to be a smashing success that has well and truly put Apink back on top of the charts.
The group's mini-album, Pink Up, has topped the Gaon album charts to become the second No. 1 album of their career. Sales for the disc are incredibly strong so far, with Pink Up shifting over 41,000 copies (and counting)!
The girls are also doing well on the Gaon digital chart. Their new single, "Five," just debuted at No. 4, beating the No. 5 peak of last year's "Only One." It's still selling well on Melon's real-time chart too, so you can probably expect "Five" to have some serious longevity over the summer.
Apink are also winning first place on music programs again. After failing to pick up any wins for "Only One" last year, "Five" has already placed first on The Show and Show Champion.
It's safe to say that this has definitely been an incredible comeback for Apink!
