SEOUL, Oct. 26 (Yonhap) -- Popular K-pop acts NCT and BLACKPINK both ranked in the top 10 on the Billboard's main albums chart with their latest albums.

The 23-member boy band NCT debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 with its new album "NCT - The 2nd Album RESONANCE Pt. 1," the Billboard reported Sunday (U.S. time).

The Billboard 200 is one of the U.S. music publisher's main charts, ranking the most popular albums of the week in the United States based on data, including album sales and streaming.

NCT's album earned 43,000 equivalent album units, with 40,000 coming from traditional album sales and the remaining coming from digital streaming.

While NCT's spin-off act NCT 127 has made it to the Billboard 200, it marks the first time that an album by the full-member act has reached the main album chart.

"The Album," released Oct. 2, debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard chart -- the first time for a K-pop girl group -- and ranked No. 6 the following week.

Billboard said the group's album units slipped 15 percent from the previous week to 29,500 units.
