[KARA] FIRST FOREIGN GROUP TO MAKE TOP 10 ON JAPANESE ORICON

Kara became the first foreign Asian girl group to make the top 10 on the Japanese Oricon charts.

Oricon is the most influential music statistics publisher in Japan.

The group’s debut single “Mister,” which was released on Aug. 11, sold 29,000 copies in the first week. This allowed Kara to reach No. 5 on the daily Oricon singles chart and fifth on the Aug. 16 weekly chart.

The first foreign female group to make to the Oricon hall of fame is the world famous Irish disco group the Nolans, with their 1980 single, “I’m In the Mood for Dancing,” but Kara is the first non-Japanese Asian female group to hit the charts.
