    Girls’ Generation has achieved a major breakthrough as a foreign artist in the Oricon charts. The 9 members of Korean girl group Girls’ Generation have topped the “1st Half of 2011 Oricon Ranking” in the foreign artist category with record earnings of 2.6 billion yen in total sales. The girls were also placed 5th overall, after top Japanese artists like AKB48 and EXILE.

    Girls’ Generation started off the year with the release of their 3rd single “MR. TAXI/Run Devil Run” which was released on April 27th. They sold more than 150,000 copies for that single alone, and continued to make their mark with their self titled 1st Japanese album, “Girls’ Generation”, selling more than 326,000 in album sales.

    Fellow Korean artists like KARA and Tohoshinki were also mentioned as having made significant milestones. The former was ranked 6th on the charts, while Tohoshinki was ranked at 15th.

    After breaking the 100,000 mark in album sales after only 2 days, and with their ongoing successful Japan Arena Tour, it's clear that Girls' Generation has no plans to slow down with promotions.
