NewJeans’ ‘Attention’ lands 2 music show wins over Girls’ Generation, fans say ‘even prouder’

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA: The summer of 2022 sees stiff competition between the rising popularity of Seventeen and Ateez and iconic groups like Girls’ Generation and Blackpink returning after a long hiatus. But the NewJeans “monster rookies” live up to their title as they have won not once but twice against Girls’ Generation aka SNSD. Along with two music show wins, we got NewJeans’ “Attention” first win against “Girls’ Generation” “Forever 1” on Mnet’s music show “Mcountdown” on August 18.

The win was extra special because “Attention” is co-written by NewJeans member Danielle. And it looks like the new girl group is on a roll as they won their second music show the next day. On August 19, “Attention” and “Forever 1” were again nominated for No. 1 on KBS’s “Music Bank” with NewJeans winning. They also happen to be the second girl group and fourth K-pop group overall to score the highest points on “Music Bank” in 2022 with over 11.1,000 points. Their digital score, airplay score, and physical album score were higher than Girls’ Generation.
