On January 18, Epik High returned with the first part of their 10th full album “Epik High Is Here.” The album includes double title tracks “Rosario” featuring CL and Zico as well as “Based on a True Story” featuring Heize.

Soon after release, the two title tracks grabbed the No. 1 and No. 2 spots on the realtime charts of major music sites Bugs and Genie, while their b-sides were also ranking high on the charts.

At 8 p.m. KST on January 18, the album’s 10 songs almost completely took over the Top 10 of Bugs’s realtime chart, with “Rosario” in No. 1, “Based on a True Story” in No. 2, “In Self-defense” (featuring Woo Won Jae, Nucksal, and Changmo) in No. 3, “Acceptance Speech” (featuring B.I), in No. 4, “Leica” (featuring Kim Sawol) in No. 5, “Lesson Zero” in No. 6, “True Crime” (featuring Miso) in No. 7, “End of the World” (featuring G.Soul) in No. 8, and “Social Distance 16” in No. 9. “Wish You Were” grabbed the No. 13 spot.

Over on Genie’s realtime chart, by midnight KST on January 19 “Rosario” was No. 1, “Based on a True Story” was No. 2, and “In Self-defense” was No. 3, with “Acceptance Speech” in No. 5.

“Rosario” has also hit a peak of No. 8 so far on Melon’s 24Hits chart as of January 19 at 5 p.m. KST, while “Based on a True Story” reached No. 9 at that time. The chart is calculated based on accumulated streaming (40 percent) and downloads (60 percent) from the past 24 hours.

Tablo has tweeted to express his gratitude toward the group’s fans HIGH SKOOL. When a fan shared a screenshot of the songs lined up in the Top 9 on Bugs, he wrote, “Unbelievable. Thank you so much, HIGH SKOOL.” He also shared a tweet showing the tracks’ success on Genie, writing, “You’re all truly………” with crying emojis.

As of 1 a.m. KST on January 20, “Rosario” was No. 1 on the daily and realtime charts of Bugs and Genie. “Based on a True Story” was No. 2 on the daily and realtime charts on Bugs and on Genie’s daily chart, and it grabbed No. 3 on Genie’s realtime chart.
