The Gaon Chart, South Korea’s official music chart run by the Korea Music Content Industry Association, released their list of bestselling albums in 2010 yesterday. All three of Girls’ Generation’s 2010 Korean albums claimed spots two through four, making them the only female artists to place in the top five.

Coming in second place is their second full-length album “Oh!”, having sold 197,934 copies last year. In third is their third mini-album “Hoot”, with 163,066 copies purchased. And in fourth is the repackaged version of their second album, “Run Devil Run”, with 136,851 copies sold, a monumental feat for an album with only two new songs and a remix of Star Star Star. In total, the girls sold 497,851 copies of their new studio albums in South Korea alone in 2010.

Super Junior received first place, having sold 200,193 copies of “Bonamana”, and G-Dragon and T.O.P came in 5th with 130,000 sold.

Other Girls’ Generation albums making the list include: “The First Asia Concert Tour: Into the New World” at 29th with 44,999 copies, “Gee” at 48th with 31,087 copies, “Sowoneul Malhaebwa (Genie)” at 49th with 29,968 copies, “Baby Baby” at 54th with 27,154 copies, and “Girls’ Generation” at 61st with 24,802 copies.

In other 2010 Gaon charts, Girls’ Generation had four songs make the top 100 in the online chart, with “Oh!” at 5th, “Hoot” at 10th, “Run Devil Run” at 25th, and Taeyeon and the One’s duet “Like a Star” at 53rd.
