Its idol madness on Oricon!
This week KARA released their 1st original album Girl’s Talk while BEAST released their first album BEAST – Japan Premium Edition and 2PM released their 1st Japanese DVD Hottest ~2PM 1st MUSIC VIDEO COLLECTION & The History~
But sadly, neither one has made no.1
KARA unfortunately picked a nasty week to go against Utada Hikaru one of the Japan’s biggest and most popular singers who released her farewell album Utada Hikaru SINGLE COLLECTION VOL. 2 as she goes on hiatus, throwing KARA in the no.3 spot which is still impressive and a first for female K-pop groups but clearly everyone from SNSD to Big Bang is itching for that no.1 spot that no other Korean group besides TVXQ has held.
Despite their relative unknown status BEAST faired not too bad debuting at no.6 for a group only in their 2nd year.
And finally 2PM shined bright on the charts as the only reason they didn’t win no.1 was because of the King of Pop, Micheal Jackson’s Visions DVD so that certainly is still impressive!

For the recent couple of years, idol groups have been taking over. Amongst the many boy and girl groups, there were a lot of new appearances but also exits. With a lot of teams coming in at once, the battle between idol groups in order to survive was brutal. Of course, this is still continuing till this day.
Amongst the idol groups, the feverous battle continues since in the current music scene, it’s not difficult for a new boy group to snag a spot as a popular team.

“B2ST’s 3rd minialbum is not just a simple comeback, but something that holds so much more meaning. B2ST has managed to succeed with just their talent alone after overcoming prejudice and hardship, much like a ripened grain that has gone through a summer of both sunshine and storm. It’s your support and love that has become their foundation, enabling them to become acknowledged.We will now be showing the two biggest plans that await B2ST as they stand before the starting line of their adventures.
If the ‘Mastermind’ released on September 28th and 30th is considered part 1, another part of it will be released in November. Part 2 is not just a simple repackaged album, but will consist of entirely new songs. We are working hard to make sure that the two albums properly capture the charms of the six members of B2ST.
Secondly, B2ST will be holding their first ever concert on December 12th. Since every moment spent with B2UTYs is precious, only the greatest performances will be prepared. Please come together for B2ST’s special stage.
With the doors of ‘Mastermind’ just now opening, we hope that this becomes an autumn, and a year worth remembering. Thank you.”
