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.
