    The ladies of SNSD who are actively standing on stages all across Asia are about to sell 1 million copies of their first full-length Japanese album, ‘Girls Generation‘.

    According to Japanese media outlets such as Sankei Sports, ‘Girls Generation’ which was released in Japan back in June has already sold more than 850,000 copies.

    A repackaged album is scheduled to be released on the 28th, and therefore with it’s inclusion in the sales figure, it is highly likely that their first album will surpass the 1 million sales mark. The repackaged album contains songs like “Time Machine” as well as the Japanese version of the “The Boys” from their third album which was released globally in October.

    In the event that SNSD sells 1 million copies of ‘Girls Generation’, they will become the first overseas artist to accomplish such a feat in Japan. There has yet to be a Korean group in Japan to sell 1 million copies of an album (Note: BoA as a solo artist already accomplished this feat), so needless to say, all eyes are on the SNSD girls.

    Additionally, ‘Girls Generation’ ranked #1 on major Japanese album distributor Tower Records‘ ‘2011 K-POP Album Sales Ranks‘, tallying the number of albums sold between January 1st and November 30th of this year.

    In related news, SNSD has attended FujiTV‘s ‘FNS Song Festival‘ on the 7th, and will be rounding out the year at NHK‘s ‘Red & White Singing Battle (Kohaku)‘ on the 31st.
