Girls’ Generation’s success in Japan is evident yet again as Oricon released their yearly sales chart. Amassing a revenue of over 4.3 billion yen (550 billion KRW; $51 million USD), Girls’ Generation tops Korean sales in Japan and was the seventh highest grossing artist overall for 2012. This news comes days after their second Japanese album achieved platinum certification from the Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ).

“Girls’ Generation II ~Girls & Peace~” and three singles, “Paparazzi”, “Oh!”, and “FLOWER POWER” earned high spots in daily, weekly, and monthly Oricon singles charts for the year. The “Girls’ Generation: Complete Video Collection” released in September sold over 87,500 copies and was certified “Gold” by the RIAJ.

Oricon’s yearly chart for 2012 recorded sales from December 26, 2011 to December 17, 2012.
