SEOUL, July 2 (Yonhap) — K-pop girl group TWICE’s Japanese debut album has sold over 100,000 copies in just four days, its agency said Sunday.

“#TWICE,” released last Wednesday, has sold 100,953 copies in Japan as of Saturday, according to JYP Entertainment, holding on to number two on Oricon’s daily album sales chart.

The record, which holds TWICE’s past hit songs both in Japanese and Korean, topped nine Apple iTunes charts, including in Japan, Indonesia, Macau and Malaysia upon its release last week.

The nine-member girl group, which has two Japanese members, has stormed the K-pop scene since its debut about a year and a half ago.

Starting with its debut song “Ooh-Ahh,” TWICE has had five consecutive No. 1 tracks — others being “Cheer Up,” “TT,” “Knock Knock” and its most recent hit track “Signal” — at home.
