ITZY recently became the fourth K-pop girl group to land in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200, joining BLACKPINKโ€™s 2020 studio debut โ€˜THE ALBUMโ€™, labelmates TWICEโ€™s โ€˜Formula Of Love: T+O=<3โ€™ last November and aespaโ€™s โ€˜Girlsโ€™ in July with their latest mini-album โ€˜Checkmateโ€™, which debuted at number eight on the chart. The mini-album was released on July 15 alongside the music video for its title track โ€˜Sneakersโ€™, and includes 7 new songs, as well as an English-language version of the title track.

In an interview with NME before the release of โ€˜Checkmateโ€™, the group discussed the pressure of making a comeback and their strengthened bond. โ€œIt would be a lie if we said we felt no pressure at all,โ€ vocalist Lia shared. โ€œBut I guess [this time], we just tried to focus on showing what kind of group we are, what kind of group ITZY really are, and how good we can be.โ€

In other K-pop news, BLACKPINK kicked off their world tour in support of their sophomore LP โ€˜Born Pinkโ€™, with back-to-back shows at the Olympic Gymnastics Arena in South Korea on October 15 and 16. The group are now headed to North America for a series of concerts.

ITZY’s 2023 Asia tour dates so far are:

January 14 โ€“ SM Mall of Asia Arena, Manila, the Philippines
January 28 โ€“ The Star Theatre, Singapore
February 4 โ€“ Tennis Indoor Senayan, Jakarta, Indonesia
February 8 โ€“ Thunder Dome, Bangkok, Thailand
