[Update] Japanese ‘Hoot’ CF added.
Korean artists are conquering Japan’s twitter community that is. 🙂
of course our very own SNSD/Shoujo Jidai girls are one of them.
SNSD rounded up the top 5 in Japan’s Twitter Search Statistic Site while other Hallyu stars such as JYJ’s Hero Jaejoong and KARA ranked 1st and 3rd respectively in the ‘famous individual’ category this year. SNSD’s seniors, TVXQ also came in 7th and JYJ’s Xiah Junsu secured 10th place.
Both SNSD’s and KARA’s phenomenal popularity in Japan is evident as they were among the top 3 Korean artists ranked within the top 5 of the list despite being ‘rookies’.
Lets have a little recap of SNSD’s success in Japan shall we?
-Since their Japanese debut in September, they have released 2 Japanese singles ‘Genie‘ and ‘Gee‘ where both singles recorded sales exceeding 100,000 copies and received the Golden Certificates from Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ).
-In August, SNSD’s first Japanese showcase recorded a total attendance of 22,000 at Ariake Coliseum.
– As we previously reported, SNSD’s newly released Licensed Japanese Edition 3rd Mini Album ‘Hoot‘ recorded a massive sale of 21,271 copies on the first day, putting the at #2 on Oricon Daily Album Chart.
With popularity that is increasing exponentially by day, it sure comes as no surprise that they are one of the hottest search items on Twitter!
