Their rise in followers is most likely due to how active the girls were in May. Since the girls made a comeback with "Mafia in the Morning" on Apr. 30, they spent the whole of May promoting their single and their fourth mini-album, "Guess Who."

"Guess Who" is ITZY's best-selling album to date, selling 260,000 pre-order copies, surpassing their personal best record of 200,000 copies with "Not Shy." "Guess Who" debuted at the number one spot of the Gaon Retail Album Chart.

On the Gaon Weekly Album Charts, "Guess Who" debuted and peaked at number two, while it ranked at number five on the Gaon Monthly Album Chart. All songs from the mini-album entered the Gaon Download Chart.
