Six Korean groups are on the Top 14 of Billboard's World Albums Chart this week, showing the growing popularity of K-pop music across the world.

Sitting at the No. 1 spot on the World Albums Chart is Aespa's mini-album "Savage," which is the first physical album by the girl group since SM Entertainment formed it in 2020.

Aespa released purely digital singles in the past, beginning with its 2020 debut track, "Black Mamba," which was hailed as the fastest debut track by any K-pop group to surpass 100 million views on YouTube.

The group's latest release, "Savage," also debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Independent Albums this week and ranked 20th on Billboard 200. It also snatched the No. 2 spot on Billboard's Top Albums Sales chart.

At the fourth spot on the World Albums Chart is NCT 127's latest studio album, "Sticker." The album is also spending its fourth week on the Billboard 200, which ranks the 200 most popular albums in the U.S.

NCT 127's "Sticker" is the second K-pop album of 2021 to rank on the Billboard 200 for four consecutive weeks, following TXT's achievement with "The Chaos Chapter: Freeze" in June.

Global powerhouse BTS has five albums on this week's World Albums Chart, starting with "Map Of The Soul: 7," which is at No. 5. It is followed by "BE," "Love Yourself: Tear," "Love Yourself: Her" and "Love Yourself: Answer," which occupy the No. 9, 11, 12 and 14 spots, respectively.

Currently at No. 6 on the World Albums Chart is Itzy's first studio album, "Crazy In Love." It has so far spent three consecutive weeks on the chart.

This no longer comes as a surprise since Itzy, the five-member girl group that debuted under JYP Entertainment in 2019, is considered one of the most popular fourth-generation K-pop groups in Southeast Asia.

"The Chaos Chapter: Freeze" of Tomorrow X Together or TXT, another leading fourth-generation K-pop group, rose to No. 8 this week, effectively extending its record as the longest-charting K-pop album of 2021. The said album also made its re-entry to Billboard's Tastemaker Albums this week, snatching the No. 2 spot.

Finally, K-pop leader Blackpink marked the 54th week of "The Album" on the World Albums Chart by claiming the No. 10 spot.
