B.A.P′s ′One Shot′ Scores Again on Taiwanese Charts
B.A.P′s One Shot took over the no. 1 spot on two of the largest music charts in Taiwan as soon as it was released.
According to the weekly charts of g-music and Five Music released on March 22, B.A.P′s second mini album One Shot topped their Korean and Japanese album charts with its release.
G-music and Five Music are the largest album retailer administrators in Taiwan, and their Korean-Japanese album charts are deemed highly reliable as they bring together online and offline sales statistics.
This isn′t the first time B.A.P has topped a chart on g-music, as its first mini album No Mercy released in July 2012 stayed on the top of its K-Pop Weekly Album Chart for five weeks in a row.
The feat is even more meaningful in that it was achieved amidst competition from such big names as Super Junior, Girls′ Generation (SNSD), SHINee, CN Blue, Teen Top, AKB48 and KAT-TUN.
A rep from Sony Taiwan, in charge of distribution, commented, "Local officials are in awe at the rate B.A.P has been growing. We believe it was their different style of K-Pop that found a break."
B.A.P will continue to promote One Shot in Korea.
