[2010.11.30] KARA, First Asian girls group to break 100k in album sales in the first week in six years and nine months

Korea's five-membered girls group, KARA's first original Japanese album, "Girl's Talk," released on the 24th, sold 107k copies in the first week and debuted on the December 6th Oricon Weekly Album Chart on the No.2 spot. This marks the first time an Asian girls group (excluding Japan) has managed to sell 100k copies in the first week since Twelve Girls Band's album, "Kikou - Shining Energy," from six years and nine months ago.

"Girl's Talk" includes KARA's Japanese debut single, "Mister," and second single, "Jumping," as well as KARA's Korean hit, "Lupin," for a total of ten Japanese tracks. KARA has broken their own highest first week sales record of 51k, which was set by their Korean best album, "KARA BEST 2007-2010," released in September. "KARA BEST 2007-2010" has obtained the highest Oricon position of No.2 and has sold 109k since then.

wow, so best album is still doing really well. Let just hope that best album hit 150K, and GT hit 200K by the end of the year. Cong to our girls they work their butt of the get to where they are. Another record broken by KARA again, I guess when KARA goes on korean variety show, they are going to mention this. Since the last time they mention KARA was the first foreign girl group to be in the top 10 after 30 years. Now here another one you can talk about KARA the first asian girl group to break 100K in one week after 6 years and nine months. Cong to our girls, another gold in the bag, they defintely should of won the best newcomer. KARA is number 1, let hope this album hit 200K like what UMJ predicated.

Not a big revelation, after all Kara is the best :D still I'm really glad that my favourite k-pop group is getting so much attention in Japan, maybe there will be a day they will outrun AKB48 in the numbers of sold CD's :)
