In just two years, IVE has quickly gained recognition and success in the industry, earning multiple accolades. Regarded as one of the most successful girl groups of the fourth generation, their releases consistently top the charts. Beyond South Korea, IVE enjoys a massive global fanbase, showcasing its widespread popularity worldwide.
IVE achieved their first Perfect All Kill (PAK) last year with the hit song "After Like," accomplishing this feat 21 days after its release. In 2023, IVE not only broke that record but also secured multiple Perfect All Kills (PAK) with their subsequent releases.
Perfect All Kill (PAK) is a rare and prestigious achievement on South Korean music charts. A song earns a PAK when it secures the top spot in real-time and daily charts of music streaming platforms such as Melon, Genie, Bugs!, Vibe, Flo, and YouTube Music. This rare achievement serves as a powerful indicator of a song's immense popularity in South Korea and is attained by only a select few. Achieving a PAK signifies the exceptional success of a song in the highly competitive K-pop world.
In K-pop history, only 15 girl groups have achieved a Perfect All-Kill (PAK), including iconic names like 2NE1, SISTAR, TWICE, BLACKPINK, NewJeans, and IVE. Notably, IVE stands out in 2023 as the sole K-Pop girl group to secure multiple Perfect All-Kills (PAK), marking a remarkable achievement in their career.
For this year, only six songs have achieved the Perfect All Kill (PAK) status. These songs are IVE's "Kitsch," IVE's "I AM," (G)I-DLE's "Queencard," NewJeans' "Super Shy," AKMU's "Love Lee," and lastly, IVE's latest title track song "Baddie."
IVE has made a significant impact in the K-pop scene, with three out of six songs achieving Perfect All-Kill (PAK) status. This accomplishment solidifies their position as one of the most influential girl groups from the 4th generation of K-pop.
