Korea's five-membered girls group, KARA's first original Japanese album, "Girl's Talk," released on the 24th, sold 107k copies in the first week and debuted on the December 6th Oricon Weekly Album Chart on the No.2 spot. This marks the first time an Asian girls group (excluding Japan) has managed to sell 100k copies in the first week since Twelve Girls Band's album, "Kikou - Shining Energy," from six years and nine months ago.
"Girl's Talk" includes KARA's Japanese debut single, "Mister," and second single, "Jumping," as well as KARA's Korean hit, "Lupin," for a total of ten Japanese tracks. KARA has broken their own highest first week sales record of 51k, which was set by their Korean best album, "KARA BEST 2007-2010," released in September. "KARA BEST 2007-2010" has obtained the highest Oricon position of No.2 and has sold 109k since then.
