Top K-pop acts Girls’ Generation, Super Junior and 2PM have proved their strong popularity on Japanese music charts.

Girls’ Generation topped the Oricon’s daily album chart on Wednesday with their third Japan studio album “LOVE&PEACE,” while Super Junior’s fifth Japan single “Blue World” grabbed No. 2 on the Oricon’s daily singles chart the same day.

Over on the daily DVD charts, 2PM’s live recording of their April Tokyo Dome show, dubbed “LEGEND OF 2PM in TOKYO DOME,” topped both of the aggregated DVD chart and the music DVD chart as soon as its release on Wednesday.

The nine-member girl group will celebrate the new album’s release through “GIRLS’ GENERATION Free Live ‘LOVE&PEACE’” at the Yokohama Arena this Saturday.

Super Junior will continue their activities as its sub-unit SUPER JUNIOR DONGHAE & EUNHYUK, who confirmed to embark on their first Japan nationwide tour at Nagoya’s International Conference Center’s Century Hall next March.

2PM’s new live concert DVD includes not only splendid performances held at the prestigious concert venue as well as “2PM the Movie Road to TOKYO DOME,” which features 2PM members at the back stage.

The six-member group will also embark on their new Japan arena tour next month, starting at Nagoya’s Nippon Gaishi Hall on January 27 and 28.
