4. CNBLUE (15 Days)
CNBLUE held the record for the fastest first win for years but were recently dethroned. “I’m A Loner” won first place on Music Bank just over two weeks after it was released.
5. BLACKPINK (13 Days)

8. WINNER (9 days)
WINNER, back when they were a 5-man group registered their first music show after a staggeringly short 9 days after their debut. “Empty” isn’t exactly the type of song we associate WINNER with these days but it’s still a great song in its own right.
9. Wanna One (9 Days)
The recently disbanded Wanna One immediately won Show Champion with their debut song “Energetic”, matching WINNER’s record of 9 days.
