SEOUL -- K-pop boy band Ateez is garnering explosive popularity through its ninth mini album titled "The World EP.2: Outlaw." The album, released on June 12, was ranked second on Billboard's top 200 popular album chart.
"ATEEZ scores its highest-charting album on the Billboard 200 as The World EP.2: Outlaw bows at No. 2 with 105,500 equivalent album units earned — the Korean pop act’s best week by units," Billboard said in a statement on June 25. The music video for the album's title track "Bouncy" has gained more than 30 million views on YouTube.
