The debut K-pop group X:IN has been making waves this year, particularly due to Aria’s rise to fame on Chinese social media. She gained massive popularity by becoming a viral sensation on Weibo, drawing in millions of fans and landing her at the top of the list, with over 100 million views.
With its stunning visuals, ARIA captured the hearts of Chinese netizens and expanded her fan base beyond just her current supporters. Her striking appearance and charismatic nature drew in an abundance of attention from those who were not attracted to her until recently.
A fan-filmed performance by Aria on Inkigayo, titled “Keeping The Fire,” quickly became viral, with over 1 million views within a few weeks of its release. The video’s popularity continued to rise, and it now has more than 1.9 million viewers on YouTube.
X:IN’s energetic rendition of “SYNCHRONIZE” on Music Bank received widespread appreciation earlier this year. It was ranked #4 among the most-watched stages on KBS World TV in September 2023, with an impressive 447,800 views.
