Wonder Girls debuted in Japan last month through a showcase. They ranked 14th in Oricon chart the first week of their debut and sold 7,460 albums. Those results are not that impressive as how popular Wonder Girls is.
The representative said, "They did not go to Japan to get more popular. They just wanted to meet their fans in Japan, that is all." Wondergirls' Yoobin had also said during an interview in June, "We did not go to Japan to get rank 1 in Oricon charts, we just wanted Japan to listen to our music."
Wonder Girls will be moving onto promotion in the U.S. after 'JYP Nation' concert in Japan on 18th and 19th.
