Korean girl group Kara’s new album “JUMPING” has entered Japan’s prestigious Oricon daily album chart at No. 5.
Kara’s agency DSP Media announced through a press release on Thursday that “JUMPING,” the girls’ second mini-album in Japan, placed fifth on the chart yesterday, on the day it went on sale in the country.
Also, the music video for the title track on the album also of the same name, became the most downloaded music video at iTunes Store VIDEO CLIP and the third-most downloaded song at iTunes Store Pop.
Kara has led a successful singing career in Japan, seeing their first Japanese single “Mister” landing at No. 5 on both Oricon’s daily and weekly chart and then second on both charts with their best album “KARA BEST 2007-2010.”
Five-member girl group Kara is currently in Japan promoting “JUMPING” but will return to Korea on November 15 to promote the same record as their fourth mini-album back home.
