Doesn't surprise me in the least tbqh. Boys are staying strong and awesome single is awesome as glorious album is glorious. It's been a basically flaw-free year thus far and they still have the lives coming up <33
EDIT: big thanks to hana8796 and apneatic_melody for pointing out the major mistranslation by the source, it's top 10 singles not #1, which actually makes much more sense considering their track record in their very early years |D Still flaw-free boys are flaw-free.
