According to Gaon Chart’s ‘October Album Chart’ released on November 10th, Girls’ Generation’s 3rd album ‘The Boys’ took the no.1 spot with a total recorded sales of 227,994 copies in October.

In just about two weeks after its release on October 19th, the sales of ‘The Boys’ had surpassed 200,000 copies. This sales figure is the highest among female artistes and it also places the girls among the top 3 artistes with the best selling albums this year.

A representative of Gaon Chart said, “Due to the influence of the Kpop wave which is becoming the craze all over the world, the album sales of popular Hallyu idol singers have increased compared to last year. This is also probably due to the increase in purchases of albums by international fans through Korean music sites.”

In terms of cumulative album sales this year, Super Junior’s 5th album ‘Mr. Simple’ is in 1st place with 329,035 copies, followed by TVXQ’s ‘Keep Your Head Down’ in the 2nd spot with 244,128 copies.

The popularity of South Korean girl group, Girls’ Generation continues to soar undauntedly in Japan.

According to a Japanese music site, CDV-NET, Girls’ Generation’s “MR.TAXI/Run Devil Run” single came in 7th on the weekly charts and was the only South Korean group which made the top 10. Ever since their label mate, TVXQ, made the entry into the top 10, there has not been any other South Korean artist on the list. The data was collected from the 4th of July to the 10th, and even though both singles were roughly released 3 months ago on the 27th of April, they remain just as popular as ever.

Girls’ Generation’s Japanese debut single, “Genie” is also still on the charts after a good 9 months, and is currently at the 35th position. Ever since the release of the single on 20th October 2010, “Gee” has remained on the top 100 weekly charts for 38 consecutive weeks, further proving their takeover in Japan. This week, the certified Gold single was placed 25th on the chart. As there are more than 3,500 artists on CDV-NET, the popularity of an artist can be easily judged based on the ranking of their albums and singles.

Ever since Girls’ Generation first announced their plans to break into the Japanese music industry back in September, their album sales have increased in folds. Their debut single, “Genie”, was awarded the Gold certificate for selling more than 100,000 copies. Less than a year later, Girls’ Generation’s self-titled first Japanese album sold more than 100,000 copies in less than 2 days, and has since been certified as Double-Platinum for selling more than 500,000 albums.

Meanwhile, Girls’ Generation will be starting off their 2nd tour on the 23rd of July at the Seoul Olympic Park Stadium, 5 days after wrapping up their Japan Arena Tour. Following that, they will also be making an appearance as the first South Korean female artist to attend Japan’s “Summer Sonic 2011” on the 14th of August.
