More about ILLIT

ILLIT is a fresh-faced South Korean girl group nurtured by Belift Lab (same agency as ENHYPEN), a subsidiary of HYBE, emerging through the JTBC 2023 survival competition show R U Next? Their debut took place on March 25, 2024, with the release of their EP Super Real Me. The name I'll-It, previously undisclosed, was unveiled during the climactic finale of R U Next?

The significance behind the name lies in its flexibility, encouraging individuals to insert their own verb between I'll and It, symbolizing the members' autonomy and capability to make choices independently. 

The girl group has been making waves in the industry since its debut. For the week concluding on April 20, ILLIT's debut anthem Magnetic made a striking entrance onto the Hot 100, claiming the 91st spot. This achievement not only marks their first appearance on the chart but also positions them as the first K-pop group to achieve this feat with a debut song. Additionally, they join an elite club as only the ninth K-pop group ever to grace the Hot 100.
