T-ara Sets a New Record By Topping Oricon Weekly Singles Chart


T-ara has set a new record through their Japanese debut last September. The group’s Japanese debut single “Bo Peep Bo Peep” has placed first in the popular Japanese Oricon weekly charts.

Last October 4, it was published through Japanese media that, “T-ara’s ‘Bo Peep Bo Peep’ placing number one on the daily charts on it’s release day and on the weekly singles charts on it’s debut week is a first for a foreign group and an international female artist ever in history.”

Regarding this success, T-ara released their statement saying “Hello, this is T-ara! Our debut single ‘Bo Peep Bo Peep’ ranked one on Oricon because of your support! We’re very very thankful! Sincerely, thank you so much! We hope we can continue to be loved in the future and please continue to support T-ara! Thank you!”

DBSK’s latest Japanese album, “TONE,” has also ranked first in the Oricon albums chart. This week is a milestone for both DBSK and T-ara because it is the first time that Korean groups have simultaneously placed first in the singles and album charts of Oricon.

T-ara is currently promoting “Bo Peep Bo Peep” in Japan. “Bo Peep Bo Peep” placed first in the Oricon daily singles chart when it was released last September 28. The group is also slated to make a comeback in Korea on November 1.
