Highly recognized Korean groups, 2PM and After School both landed in the top 10 of the vaunted Oricon’s weekly chart.
On August 23rd, according to Japan’s ‘Oricon‘, 2PM’s second single, ‘I’m your man‘ sold around 69,000 copies, which was good enough to place them 4th on the weekly charts. In addition, After School’s first single, ‘Bang‘, sold around 23,000 copies and proudly placed 7th on the chart.
