Korean female idols Girls’ Generation has worked their magic in Japan once again, winning a gold disk with single “Gee” to make it their second time to receive the title.
According to the prestigious Oricon’s weekly singles chart, the girl group’s second Japanese single “Gee” gained the acknowledgement by selling over 100,000 copies.
As of November 9, the single has accumulated 102,811 in total album sales in three weeks of going on sale.
Just last month, the girls received their first gold disk when their first Japanese single “Genie,” which was released in the country on September 8, sold over 100,000 copies as well.
Composed of members Taeyeon, Hyoyeon, Sunny, Tiffany, Jessica, Seohyun, Yoona, Yuri and Sooyoung, Girls’ Generation made their debut in Korea in 2007 with their single album “Into the New World.”
The group officially branched out into the Japanese music market in August this year and have led a successful career there, becoming the first Korean girl group to reach the No. 1 spot on the Oricon chart.
The girls are currently enjoying their successful comeback to the local music scene with their third mini-album “Hoot” and its title track of the same name which has topped various online music charts as well as won the top spot on televised music shows.
