+ Added latest news about the album’s sales status
With their current popularity in Japan, it is little wonder that the angelic 9
manages once again to earn another feather for their proverbial cap of achievements.
On July 6th, Tower Records Japan released the results for the K-Pop Chart listing for June 2011.
As expected, our 9 ladies’ maiden 12-song track Japanese album “Girls’ Generation” easily earned the top spot in the listing, despite having only a short release date (the album hit the store shelves only on June 1st 2011).
In addition to debut Japanese songs like “Mr. Taxi”, “Let It Rain”, “The Great Escape”, “Born To Be A Lady”, the song list also included Japanese versions of the Girls’ favourite hits like “Genie”, “Gee”, “Hoot”, “Run Devil Run”.
Pre-orders for the album hit the proverbial roof, making it No. 3 in the Japanese charts. A large portion of pre-orders actually came from fans outside of Japan, attesting once again to the global popularity of the 9 ladies.
Results from Japan’s Oricon charts showed that total sales figures for the debut album hit the 232,000 copies sold sales mark for the week the album was officially released (June 1st).
To date, approximately 325,658 copies of the album have been sold so far, and, with no visible decline in sales, easily secures the album’s place among the top 10 best selling albums for the 1st half of the year 2011.
What with the on-going Japan Arena concerts and their innumerable product endorsements in Japan, the angelic 9 ladies have certainly established a firm foothold in the Land of the Rising Sun (or Rising Soshi, as the case may be ;)).
Latest News (Thanks, LadyIgraine)
[The album is now at double platinum status (certified by RIAJ, or the Recording Industry Association of Japan), with physical sales of over 500,000 copies sold to date].

The feather in SNSD’s cap. Songs like “The Great Escape” and “I’m in love with the hero” have been circulating around in my head nonstop. The musical experience gets better every time I hit replay on these two songs, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to end any time soon. Same can be said for their alarmingly fast attainment of awards and the top spot in charts, surveys, and the like.
Good job, ladies.
it would be weird if the title was guess which idol group and the answer isn’t SNSD in this website =_=
I request kenneth not to come up with those childish and lame tags for every post instead of the more proper ones. Anyways, congrats to the gals ^_^

Great escape is a good song. the best.
according to oricon approximately 411972 copies of the album have been sold so far.
GO SOSHI! SNSD JJANG^^ ❤
Kenneth, you’re on fire with these articles. Lol, good job. But I have something to say. I was quite astounded with snsd’s album sales. I was just at allkpop and for the idol group that sold the most albums was tvxq with a little under 300,000 copies in six months but soshi sold 400,000 copies in a month. Am I misinterpreting something?
tvxq korea album… snsd japan album… so snsd album not include at korea chart… every time snsd out album at japan they go up…they album japan get the most sold (the latest)… but why kara single album more sold than they full album (kara full album out first but snsd get more sold and claim no1) and now the new single album little down than before… some say cause effect of hara love… i don’t want that happen to snsd… i hope snsd fans have open heart and what happen the fans still and always support snsd… ok… snsd didn’t yet out korea album for this year but the news snsd will comeback korea album in ogos or september so sones don’t forget buy it!
Thank you for your response 🙂 All will anticipating SNSD’s Korean comeback.
I hope SNSD brings songs like this back to Korea. Various fanclubs have already stated that SNSD’s music before wasn’t all that but if they come back with ones like this, then they’ll be no stopping them. And I agree. Oh! album was eh~ but I have no song on this album that I don’t like. I’m happy their topping it, they deserve it.
Can’t wait for the next comeback.
good to hear. i actually love like 95% of their songs. This album is so different from their previous albums, and i guess this new concept of songs gives us sones a something to listen thats out of the ordinary from snsd. I heard they were coming out with a new album like early september.
and with this we can kiss SNSDs Korean career goodbye… just like BoA’s. sales of 500,000 already add up to almost all their total album sales in Korea. SM wants the money.
