Girls’ Generation’s first Japanese album “Girls’ Generation” has sold over 850,000 units, becoming one of the top selling albums in Japan this year. However, with the recent announcement of a re-packaged album going on sale, the countdown to one million copies has officially started.

Pre-orders for the re-packaged album have already started today, which will arrive in stores on December 28. Two new songs will be present in the new album, one which will be the Japanese version of “The Boys”, which was released worldwide on October 19. The second of the two songs is titled “Time Machine”. Also included on the album will be the remixed versions of “Mr.Taxi”, “The Great Escape” and “BAD GIRL”.

Once the album reaches one million copies sold, it’ll be the first time any Korean group has ever accomplished this feat in Japan. With such an incredible milestone in reach, Girls’ Generation’s appearances at major shows such as the “FNS Music Festival” and the “62nd Kouhaku” are well deserved.

If Girls’ Generation’s album reaches the one million sold mark, it will be the first album to reach this difficult plateau in Japan this year.
