In August, 2010, Girls’ Generation broke records in Japan with the release of their

DVD, “New Beginning of Girls’ Generation”. It reached the 3rd and 4th spots on the Oricon weekly music DVD ranking and the weekly DVD ranking respectively, making them the first female k-pop group to enter the Oricon DVD Top-5 ranking.

But a year later, Girls’ Generation have surpassed themselves, proving their popularity in the Japanese music industry once again. Tower Records’ newly released ranking of the week’s sales show that Girls’ Generation’s first concert DVD; “1st ASIA TOUR: Into The New World”, released on August 19th, has taken the top spot being the highest selling DVD between August 15-21st, despite being released more than halfway through the week.

The concert DVD shows footage of the performances from Girls’ Generation’s Korean encore concert in February 2010 in Seoul, and has been long anticipated and has already proven to be explosively popular amongst Korean and international fans.
