SEOUL, Oct. 23 (Yonhap) -- K-pop band SuperM's debut album edged down to 11th on the Billboard 200 albums chart this week, after debuting at No. 1, chart results showed Wednesday.
The album, "SuperM: The 1st Mini Album," topped the chart for the week of Oct. 19, making the septet the second-ever K-pop artists to conquer the chart following BTS.
This week marks the second week in a row that the album has ranked high on the chart.
The septet was formed in a high-profile collaboration project between South Korea's biggest music label SM Entertainment and American music giant Capitol Music Group.
