KARA climbs Oricon charts amid controversyPosted: January 26, 2011
As the saying goes, “controversy sells”.
Falling into an ugly battle between their company DSP over unpaid wages, KARA‘s popularity in Japan has grown among the controversy.
On January 18 their 1st album “Girl’s Talk” ranked 10th on the Japanese Oricon Daily Rankings, but by January 21st the album quickly climbed to the no.2 spot only 2 days after their lawsuit was announced.
Also rising in the charts was their best of album which ranked 45th on January 18th and later climbed to no.18 on the 21st. Their debut single “Mister” reached #3 seven months after its release.
Coincidence? Maybe not, but clearly all eyes on KARA‘s next move in this sticky situation.
