It seems that 2022 will be remembered as a year in which the presence of popular girl groups shone more hotly and splendidly than ever before. And at the center of it all is Ive (IVE, Ahn Yu-jin, Ga-rei, Jang Won-young, Liz E-seo).

The achievements that Ive has achieved at the point of celebrating the 1st anniversary of its official debut in December 2021 are truly amazing. After winning a total of 37 awards on domestic music shows, he vomited his spirit by completing a total of 3 paintings that won both the rookie award and the grand prize, which are difficult to achieve at the same time at the year-end awards ceremony. (AAA Melon Music Awards Mama Awards)

This is not the first time that the group has won both the Rookie of the Year award and the Daesang. However, the comet-like appearance of artists with both skill and recognition showed signs of becoming more noticeable again in the recent K-pop scene. Already in 2021, aespa was a representative case, and 2NE1 miss A led the sensation before.

In fact, top 10 of the Melon Top 100 chart in August 2022 was dominated by girl groups, proving why 2022 was the year of girl groups. (1st place New Jeans 'Attention', 2nd Black Pink 'Pink Venom', 3rd New Jeans 'Hype Boy', 4th Ive 'After Like', 5th Girls' Generation 'FOREVER 1', 6th WSG Wannabe 'Then and then As it is at the moment', 7th Ive 'LOVE DIVE', 8th WSG Wannabe 'I Missed You', 9th ITZY 'SNEAKERS', and 10th New Jeans 'Cookie') 

Among them, Ive's performance this year was clearly remarkable. Although there were only 3 active songs, the performance peaked one after another. Their debut single 'ELEVEN' sold 150,000 copies in the first week, followed by 'LOVE DIVE' with 330,000 copies and 'After LIKE' with 920,000 copies in the first week.
