SEOUL, Feb. 14 (Aju News) -- MOMOLAND, a girl band that gained sudden attention with eye-catching characteristics, claimed the group has not been involved in chart manipulation about its mini album "GREAT!" released in January. 

Double Kick Company, the group's management company, said in a statement that it was digging into groundless accusations sparked by an irregular daily movement at Hanteo Chart which sums up album sales from offline stores and the sales are reflected onto the weekly music rankings of TV music show "Music Bank".

According to Hanteo, more than 8,200 copies of "GREAT!" were sold solely on Tuesday, compared to a total of 5,000 copies sold for a month in January.
 
MOMOLAND, which debuted in 2016, was an obscure girl band until members started gaining popularity in January for their unique characteristics. "Ppoom Ppoom", the title song from the group's album, topped various music charts last month.
