Kara’s DVD Kara Vacation 2, which was recently released in Japan, earned a record amount of sales in its first week.

An official from Japan’s Oricon chart stated on December 28, “Kara Vacation 2, which was released on December 21, sold 7,000 copies in the initial week of its release. It set the record of the highest sales in the first week among DVDs which were released this year.

The official continued, “Kara pulled off the highest results among idol groups who released DVDs. The sales amount is much higher than the sales of popular idol group AKB48’s DVD, which sold 4,000 copies during [its first week of sales] in July.”

Having started with Golden Disk Awards on December 11, the group has been invited to almost all the major year-end events including Best Hit Song Festival, Fuji TV’s FNS Song Festival, Asahi TV’s Music Station Super Live 2011, and NHK’s Red & White Song Battle.
