Korean boy band Astro (Hanteo Chart)
Korean boy band Astro topped a local music chart with its fourth mini album “Dream Part. 01.”

Following its release on May 29, the band secured a weekly top spot on Hanteo Chart, which tracks the popularity of major music records in Korea.

The artists have introduced a concept called “Dream Store,” whereby they play songs conceptualized in selling dreams. The group has toured across Asia, including Thailand, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore this year, and is planning performances in Japan.

Astro debuted in February last year with song “Hide and Seek” from the mini album “Spring Up,” which reached the 6th spot on the Billboard World Albums Chart in the US as well as fourth spot on Gaon Music Chart. Billboard named the group one of the best new K-pop groups of 2016 last year. Astro has six members MJ, JinJin, Eunwoo, Moonbin, Rocky and Sanha.
