After becoming the first Korean artist/group to make it onto the Billboard Charts with their hit “Nobody”, the Wondergirls are showing no signs of slowing down by dominating the music charts in Taiwan and Hong Kong.
After releasing their “Taiwan Special” album in Taiwan last February 10th, they quickly shot to number one on several of the major online and offline music charts such as G-Music, E-Momo Music Channel, Chinese Telecom emomo Charts, etc. It was announced that they even took the top spot on the major KK Box chart this week!
The Wondergirls have sold 25,000 copies of their album in less than two months time. To put that into perspective, the record number of albums being sold by a foreign Asian artist in Taiwan or Hong Kong during a short amount of time stands at 30,000 albums.
A JYP Enteratinment source commented that on top of “Nobody” doing so well in Taiwan, the girls’ “Hong Kong Special” album is also being received favorably in Hong Kong. He added that “Nobody’s” popularity is growing by the day.
The super girl team has expressed their gratitude in garnering such a great response for their song in not only Korea, but America, Southeast Asia…and now Taiwan and Hong Kong.
The Wondergirls returned to Korea on March 26th, and are currently working on their latest album which is slated to be released in the U.S. sometime in May.
