SNSD recorded a total sales of 2.6 billion Yen in the first half of 2011, according to ‘Oricon 2011 first half ranking’ which placed them at the no.1 spot in terms of total sales among foreign artistes and 5th among the top selling artistes in Japan.

AKB48 sold the most with 6.66 billion Yen, followed by Arashi with 6.59 billion Yen. EXILE came in 3rd with 4.68 billion Yen while Japanese diva, Namie Amuro was just a spot in front of Shoujo Jidai with a total sales amounting to 2.7 billion Yen. Kara took the 6th spot with sales of 2.15 billion Yen. SNSD and Kara who are the symbols of Kpop fever in Japan since last year had managed to be in the top 10 best selling artistes in Japan for the first half of 2011.

After 3 weeks of its release, SNSD’s 1st Japanese studio album ‘Girls’ Generation’ has recorded a total sales of 378,534 copies. With sales volume reaching 400,000, the initial shipment of 500,000 copies proved to be too little. In order to cope with the demand, additional 100,000 copies are being shipped.

Well, believe it or not, half a year has already come and almost gone, in a blink of an eye. How have our favourite 9 fared so far in the music popularity stakes ?

Quite well, actually, as far as the Oricon charts are concerned .

Our favourite Korean girl group was placed 5th overall for the “1st Half of 2011′s Oricon Ranking” with a record total sales earnings of 2.6 billion yen.

The girls were placed after top Japanese artistes like AKB48 and EXILE and have, in fact, emerged as the top performing foreign artiste on the list.

Girls’ Generation started off the year with the release of their 3rd single “MR. TAXI/Run Devil Run”(release date: 27th April 2011). For that single alone, they sold more than 150,000 copies.

They went on to make their mark with their self-titled 1st Japanese album, “Girls’ Generation”, garnering an album sales figure of more than 326,000 copies sold.

In addition, “MR. TAXI./Run Devil Run” was ranked 21st in the “Top 50 Singles” category, whilst their 1st Japanese album and Hoot were placed at 10th and 21st positions respectively for the “Top 50 Albums” category.

Their DVD “New Beginning of Girls’ Generation” was also ranked 15th for the “TOP DVDs” category.

In the same report, fellow Korean artists like KARA and Tohoshinki were also noted to have made significant milestones in this respect. The former was ranked 6th for the foreign artist category, while Tohoshinki was ranked at 15th.

What with breaking the 100,000 mark in total album sales after only 2 days, and with their extremely successful ongoing Japan Arena Tour, it certainly looks like there’ll be no stopping our favourite 9 angels at all for the remaining portion of 2011.

SNSD Daebak !!!

KBS CoolFM Radio conducted a preference survey for their 46th Anniversary from June 7th till 9th to find out which songs Koreans most like to listen to. The survey involved more than 26,000 participants between the ages of 10-50 and of both genders. The internet voting also included music critics and a selection committee, resulting in a list of the top 89 songs of all time. As pictured above, the survey was divided into rank, title and artist.

Girls' Generation's "Gee" was ranked 9th among veteran artists like Lee Moonsae who placed 1st with "Kwanghwamun Love Song". Kim Hyunshik's "My Love By My Side" and Yoo Jaeha's "Because I Love You" were placed 2nd and 3rd respectively. Some idol artists who made the chart include Big Bang (Lies), IU (Good Day) and 2NE1 (I Don't Care) who were ranked at 35th, 44th and 50th respectively. Fellow labelmates Super Junior and BOA made the list as well.

Considering the diversity of the participants, Girls' Generation's high placing is indeed an achievement and has further proven the group's appeal among the masses.
