And ASAP debuted very low too so what's your point? My point is that you should never make conclusions so pre-maturely as I'm pretty sure no one expected ASAP to do this well.
And expecting ITZY to have a song to do as well as Dalla Dalla is sort of unrealistic as there were many factors that played into the song's success. Despite this, as I said, the charting is impressive for a Friday and 1PM KST release, and they're still doing MILES better than most 4th gen groups.
ASAP’s rise is coming from word of mouth. ITZY is already well known with the public but they aren’t taking interest to their new title. ITZY’s fandom is already streaming hard for them but either their fandom needs to grow or they need public to start liking the song
While ASAP might still continue to grow as more regular Koreans (who don’t follow kpop) start to know about it
