KARA’s sixth single “Speed Up/ Girls Power” released on March 21 recorded 155,117 copies of the single to date recently. Thus bringing the grand total of six singles sales to 1,000,999 copies, the group marked this achievement in just a year and 11 months following their debut in Japan with “Mister.”

The only Korean artists that have sold over a million sales in singles in Japan are BoA and TVXQ so far and now KARA has joined them along as they proven to be one of the leading representatives of K-Pop wave.

Looking closely at the numbers truthfully displays KARA’s strong presence over in Japan. Frist KARA achieved selling a million singles in the shortest time, being less than two years with merely 6 singles. The same achievement by TVXQ took 3 years and 7 months after releasing 24 singles following their debut in Japan. Girls’ Generation is following closely after so far releasing 4 singles with current record of 569,896 copies sold.

KARA is currently preparing for the rest of their Asia tour as they successfully finished Japan leg as they performed over a total of 150,000 audiences 12 times in six different cities, as well as their comeback in Korea.
