It is known that Billboard’s Emerging Artist Chart takes into account several numerical indexes every week since August 2017 and it is a chart that announces potential emerging artists from all over the world. With that said, NCT managed to clinch the top spot which is the first for a K-Pop act. It also proves that the group is gaining reputation globally as well.
