Girl group Kara continue to enjoy sweeping popularity in Japan. As of Friday, their debut Japanese album "Girl's Talk" sold 501,999 copies since it was released at the end of last year.
"Girl's Talk" was an instant hit with sales of over 100,000 copies in the first week of its release, and fans continue to snap it up almost a year after its launch.
Meanwhile, the band's full-length second Japanese album "Super Girl," which was scheduled to be released on Wednesday, has already received more than 360,000 preorders.
The new album includes a mixture of the group's hits from their previous albums and the Japanese versions of songs from their third Korean album, which was recently released here.
