As it climbs nine spots to become the first-ever Top 10 by a K-pop girl group, Cupid's success proves the genre's ever-growing popularity in the UK.

In 2020, BLACKPINK scored their first-ever UK Top 40 single with Lady Gaga collaboration Sour Candy; with the track lifted from Gaga's Chromatica album peaking at Number 17.

The group also secured the first-ever UK Number 1 album by a K-pop girl group last year, when their second studio record Born Pink reached the summit.

More recently, members of K-pop boy band BTS have seen phenomenal UK success with their solo output.

In March of this year, Jimin scored the group's first solo Top 10 single with Like Crazy (8); beating his own record scored just one week prior with Top 40 hit Set Me Free - Pt 2 (30).

Earlier that month, bandmate j-hope became the first member of BTS to sink a solo UK Top 40 entry with J. Cole collaboration on the street (37).
