2PM (Jun-K, Nickhun, Teak Yeon, Woo Young, Joon Ho, and Chan Sung) are heating up Japan with their new Korean album Grown. Their agency, JYP Entertainment, announced yesterday that the group’s new album hit the ground running.
Grown, Version A ranked second on the weekly imported album chart of Japanese HMV and first on Tower Record’s Daily Chart, which was announced on the 20th of May. The B Version of the album, which is scheduled to be released soon, ranked at the top on HMV’s weekly pre-order chart. The album also ranked second on the weekly general album chart of Tower Records and tenth on the Oricon weekly chart.
Grown, Version A is 2PM’s first album in two years and is in great demand. Version B is to be released on the 23th. Officials of the Japanese music industry were astonished at the albums’ salesbecause they are imported albums that haven’t even been officially released yet. The group’s EP “Give Me Love” ranked at the top on Tower Record’s daily pre-order chart, so the group has swept both Korean and Japanese album charts.
The group is scheduled to hold a concert in June.
