As expected 🙂
oh I’m so obnoxious xD
On the 21st, the Japanese Version of SNSD’s mini album ‘Hoot’ was revealed, which was followed by
an expected a hot response!
Today (22/12), ‘Hoot’ [Japan] ranked 2nd on Oricon’s Daily Album Chart with 21,271 copies sold, second only to the “Empress of J-Pop”, Ayumi Hamasaki, with 70,609 copies sold. Considering the fact that SNSD are still rookies in Japan AND the fact that it is a Korean album…. 2nd ain’t too shabby. 🙂
The day before the actual release on the 20th, Tower records was filled with SNSD and ‘Hoot’ was played endlessly throughout the store (like my iPod xD) A Tower Records employee, Tanaka, stated,
Because the anticipation for SNSD was so high, we set up the stands a day before (20th) the release day. We have been receiving consistent calls since last week regarding the release. The positive attention is high, regardless of gender.
The hot response from fans continued online. The CD+DVD+photobook version of the mini album ranked in 2nd on Tower Records’ preorder chart on the 20th, while the other two versions ranked in 9th and 10th. The mini album contains a total of five tracks, ‘Hoot’, ‘Mistake’, ‘My Best Friend’, ‘Wake Up’, and ‘Snowy Wish’.
