Red Velvet celebrate their 6th year anniversary
Red Velvet Celebrate their 6th year anniversary in the K-pop industry. Here’s a look back on South Korea’s beloved girl group’s achievements since their debut in August 2014
SM Entertainment’s biggest group to date, Red Velvet, is at the peak of its career – with countless advertisements, award show performances and chart-topping, record-breaking comebacks. Recently, the South Korean outfit debuted their first-ever subunit, Irene & Seulgi, whose concept and song Monster quickly went viral worldwide.
Celebrating their sixth year in the K-pop industry, here’s a look back at the beloved girl group’s achievements since their debut in August 2014.
‘The ReVe Festival: Finale’ 24-hour achievement
Released in December 2019, Red Velvet’s first compilation album “The ReVe Festival: Finale” became the band’s most successful LP to date, alongside the track Psycho.
Some of their accolades include being the only idol girl group to have a Melon “roof hit”, being the first girl group in history to have three No 1 albums on US iTunes, and ranking No 2 on Billboard’s Social 50 Chart – the highest ranking for a girl group.
4 times on Billboard’s World Albums chart
The band’s most successful period began in 2017 when no less than four albums charted on Billboard’s World Albums Chart. Fourth EP “Rookie”, first summer EP “The Red Summer” and second full album “Perfect Velvet” all ranked No 1 almost immediately after release, while the reissued “The Perfect Red Velvet” charted at No 3 in 2018.
A rare performance in North Korea
At a rare 2018 Pyongyang concert, Red Velvet was chosen among the 160 South Korean artists to perform in front of the country’s leadership, including supreme leader Kim Jong-un – making them only the seventh idol group to perform in the country and the first since 2003.
The girl group performed their hit songs, Red Flavor and Bad Boy and North Koreans’ reaction to Red Velvet became a hot topic within South Korean media. Kim Jong-un was deeply interested in the girl group and made sure to clear his schedule to attend their performance.
In-demand first concert, Red Room
Three years after their debut, Red Velvet held their first solo two-day concert titled “Red Room”.

It was an instant success as the tickets sold out in seconds, and another date was added to the initial plan due to public demand.
Top girl group status achievement
With the overall success of “Rookie”, “The Red Summer” and “Perfect Velvet” worldwide in one year, and the huge popularity of their song Red Flavor, Red Velvet was able to achieve top girl group status in South Korea in 2017 – an accolade most girl groups in the industry wish to attain.
