BIG BANG, Oricon chart

BIG BANG, who released its Japanese mini album “For the World” last January 4, has put its name in the Oricon chart for the group ranked 14th in Oricon’s Monthly World Music section. Not only did the group achieve a spot in the monthly chart but also in the Weekly World Music chart. In the 3rd week of January, BIG BANG placed 13th and then maintained the 10th rank for a month.

“We prepared for the Japanese debut but we certainly didn’t expect to see BIG BANG’s name up in the Oricon chart. Since the songs are neither Korean nor Japanese, we considered that as a weakness because Japanese fans are not familiar with them. We didn’t think the group will receive popularity in such a short time. We’ll securely work our way up and widen activities in Japan,” YG Entertainment commented.

  1. yeay for Big Bang..they deserve it,, they have been working so hard..it also showed us how far the boys have grown and achieved up till now and to stand where they are standing now is far by reach

  2. The world music chart? So not the real charts that like BoA and DBSK rank on then. No wonder this isn’t getting an coverage in Japan, and why it’s so high for being in album all in fobbly english. I mean yeah english albums can take the top spot on the real charts but not likely for a KOREAN boy band you know? They aren’t even in the top 20 on the charts on the site. *sigh*

    It’s the same chart.
    Being on top of the Oricon is a big deal.
    Being “IN IT” is already an accomplishment.

    Though I am not crazy about BB, they’re cool though.

  4. Though I love Big Bang, they ranked in the WORLD MUSIC section of the Oricon charts, which isn’t that great compared to BoA and DBSK ranking in THE Oricon Chart.
