It’s only been seven days since it made its debut in Japan, but My Name still seems to be on a fast lane to the top.

On Tower Records’ K-Pop Hit Chart, the K-Pop chart for the biggest album seller in Japan, My Name beat out the big names IU, Girls’ Generation (SNSD), 2PM and After School to prove its popularity in Japan with a no. 1 win.

The album that brought My Name the good news was its Japan debut single album Message, released on July 25.

The album topped Tower Records’ weekly chart, and even managed to sell more albums on its second day than on its first day nationwide, moving from no. 9 to no. 7 on the Oricon Chart.

Just three days after its debut, My Name also made it onto the stage of the Tokyo Dome, entertaining a 50,000-member audience with its awesome live performance.

From August 5, the group plans to meet with more fans in Japan through a series of handshake events to be held in Osaka and Tokyo. On August 10, it will perform in Japan’s biggest summer festival, the Jingu Gaien Fireworks Festival.

Its next album in Korea is coming up in September.
