WINNER has reached another important milestone on their climb to the top as they hit 1 million likes on their official Facebook page.
The K-Pop boy band was formed under YG Entertainment last year after the five members won the record label’s self-produced reality show WIN: Who’s Next.
After several delays, the group made a successful debut in August of this year.
While members Kang Seung-yoon, Song Min-ho, Nam Taehyun, Kim Jinwoo, and Lee Seunghoon had already gained a lot of fans as trainees on the program, their popularity as a group has only exploded since the release of their first album, S/S 2014 , over the summer.
The group is currenly in the running for a couple of Mnet Asian Music Awards including Best New Artist and Artist of the Year.
While competition is tough, they are going up against JYP Entertainment’s GOT7 for the rookie award and SM Entertainment’s EXO for the overall award, the latest boom in their Facebook fans has certainly helped push the group in the lead .
To give back their thanks to all their supporters, on November 22, WINNER shared a snapshot of their group celebrating their Facebook milestone.
