Sextet girl group GFriend claimed its 12th victory on K-pop TV shows, by winning in SBS’ “Inkigayo” on Sunday.

“Rough,” the group’s title track of mini album “Snowflake” released in January, has bagged three wins each on Mnet’s “M! Countdown” and KBS 2TV’s “Music Bank.” The group also had two wins each on “Inkigayo,” SBS MTV’s “The Show” and MBC Music’s “Show! Champion.”

“Rough” also continues to hold top spot on MelOn, Korea’s leading music streaming service, for 19 consecutive days.

Local media believes “Rough” is on par with K-pop megahits such as “I” of SNSD member Taeyeon, “Lion Heart” of SNSD, “Call Me Baby” and “Love Me Right” of EXO and “Loser” of Big Bang.

Given the song beats SNSD member Taeyeon’s “Rain” and hip-hop artist Zico’s “You Are Me, I Am You,” some local media have called the group debuted in Janurary 2015 “formidable,” and their victory “miraculous.”
