This achievement is a first for RIIZE and has led them to become the first non-survival show boy group to attain the feat. In Hanteo’s history alone, they are also the first to exceed 1 million sales in the first week with a debut album.

This record was achieved by project boy group, ZEROBASEONE, who was formed from Mnet’s popular survival program “Boys Planet.”

With RIIZE being under SM Entertainment, one of the “Big 4” K-pop agencies, the group also managed to get attention ahead of their debut. Earlier on September 4, JTBC reported that RIIZE had reached 1,032,144 million stock pre-orders for “Get A Guitar.”
