10Asia News: CNBLUE tops weekly music charts in Taiwan

Four-member rock band CNBLUE has topped two weekly music charts in Taiwan with their mini-album “Bluetory,” according to their agency FNC Music on Tuesday.

FNC announced in a press release that the group’s Korean mini-album “Bluetory” took the No. 1 spot on Taiwan’s G-Music and Five Music weekly music chart during the week of August 6 to 12, placing ahead of Super Junior’s fourth full-length record “BONAMANA” and SS501’s first Japanese single “Kokoro.”

Super Junior’s album has ranked in second on G-Music and third on Five Music while SS501’s album is at third and fourth place on the two charts, respectively.

In addition, August 14 data from Taiwan’s music retailer books.com.tw has shown that while “BONAMANA” ranks first in online album sales, three of CNBLUE’s records rank within the top 10 — their Chinese limited edition “Bluetory” version A (which includes the CD and DVD) in second place, version B (just the album) in No. 4 and the exclusive Chinese release of “Bluelove” at No. 10.

CNBLUE (Code Name Blue) first made their debut in Japan, releasing two singles before breaking into the local music scene in January with “Bluetory.”

The band’s second mini-album “Bluelove” hit the stores on May 19, which have placed in the top three on Taiwan’s music charts in June.

The group, who is currently on their Asia Tour, recently sold out three shows in Japan and will continue onto Taiwan, Thailand, Hong Kong and Shanghai.
