‘Oh!’ and ‘Girls’ Generation Complete Video Collection’ certified Gold by RIAJ two weeks after release!October 11, 2012
After just two weeks of release, Girls’ Generation’s 5th Japanese single ‘Oh!’ has appeared on the list of singles with Gold certification.
The Gold certification by the Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ) is given to releases with shipment figures exceeding 100,000 copies and in just two weeks, the 5th single ‘Oh!’, which was released on September 26th, had managed to achieved such amazing feat. Other than the single, the ‘Girls’ Generation Complete Video Collection’, which was released on the same day had also received the Gold certification as well, an indication of the girls’ huge popularity in Japan.
Earlier this year, the first Japanese album ‘Girls’ Generation’, which was released back in June 2011, smashed the 1,000,000 million figure and was certified as a ‘Million’ selling album.
There will be more exciting releases to come this year as the girls’ 6th Japanese single ‘Flower Power’ and 2nd Japanese Album (title yet to be revealed) will be hitting the stores come November 14th and 28th respectively.
Girls’ Generation captivated the Japanese audience with their dazzling beauty and ever-impressive dance moves on Nippon TV’s ‘Music Lovers’ aired on October 7th, where they performed the Japanese version of ‘Oh!’, ‘All My Love Is For You’ and ‘Mr. Taxi’.
The broadcast attracted a lot of attention, especially with the appearance of Imada Koji, a comedian who claimed to be the girls’ hardcore fan. Watching Girls’ Generation’s performances together with the audience, Imada Koji made gestures of having heart attacks several times and fell to the floor, drawing laughter from everyone in the studio. Imada Koji, an actor cum comedian, once appeared in Girls’ Generation’s ‘Time Machine’ music video. The ballad was one of the songs included in the 1st Japanese Album (repackaged) ‘Girls’ Generation~The Boys~’.
After their performances, Imada Koji met up with the girls on stage and said, “I came here, leaving my 27 years of experience in the entertainment world at home”, showing a warm welcome to the girls not as a colleague in the industry but as a fan. The girls responded by saying, “Thanks to Mr. Imada, we were able to deliver more powerful performances.”
Besides that, during a corner of the show where the girls were asked to show their charms, Imada Koji once again fell to the floor due to Sunny’s irresistible aegyo, showing his true side as a fan and at the same time, keeping the audience entertained with his sense of humor.
