Pengsoo, the popular costumed penguin character from EBS, took the top place on music charts and became the ‘Genie’s Daily Chart # 1’ within 24 hours after debut.
Pengsoo, who made his debut as a singer on April 21, was ranked # 1 on the daily charts in just one day. In response, Pengsoo said through his social media, “Thank you and love you. Peng-LUV-U”
The song, released on Tuesday for domestic streaming charts, is part of Pengsoo’s first digital single album, titled ‘Billboard Project Vol. 1’. Pengsoo collaborated with hip-hop musicians Tiger JK, Bizzy, and Bibi. Through the lyrics, Pengsoo delivers its hope to make it onto the Billboard chart.
In particular, the title song ‘This is PENGSOO’, which ranked No. 1 on the chart, is a song about Pengsoo’s desire to be listed on the Billboard. All proceeds from the song sales will be donated to an environmental organization, commemorating World Penguin Day.
Meanwhile, Pengsoo’s ‘This is PENGSOO’ from the first digital single album ‘Billboard Project Vol. 1’ is flying high, ranking top place on Genie and Bugs, 17th on Soribada, and 29th on Melon.
