Boy band SuperM on Sunday came in at the top of the U.S. Billboard 200 Albums Chart with their debut album.
According to Nielsen Music, which tracks music record sales for Billboard, SuperM sold about 164,000 albums in the U.S. in about a week after releasing their first self-titled mini album on Oct. 4.
Bangtan Boys, also known as BTS, have also topped the chart a number of times, but SuperM are the first K-pop act to do so with their debut album.
Although formed only recently, the seven-member SuperM are familiar to many K-pop fans as they have been cobbled together from members of established bands like EXO, NCT 127, SHINee and WayV.
They will embark on a North American tour next month and perform in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and Vancouver.
