Last week, two of the country’s biggest record retail chains – Astroplus/Astrovision and Music One announced that Super Junior’s 4th album “Bonamana” was their NUMBER ONE ALBUM after two days of release in the market! This week, another big record retail chai…n, Odyssey, released their latest bestselling album chart and guess who’s at the #1 spot. You’re right, it’s Super Junior’s “Bonamana”.
This is SECOND TIME that a Super Junior’s album became NUMBER ONE in THREE MAJOR RECORD RETAIL CHAINS SIMULTANEOUSLY. The first time Super Junior had three simultaneous number one was for their 2nd album “Don’t Don”. “Bonamana” is the group’s FIFTH NUMBER ONE ALBUM in the country – “Sorry Sorry” in September 2009, “Super Girl” in November 2009, “Super Show 2 Live Album” in February 2010, “Don’t Don” in May 2010 and now “Bonamana” in July 2010. They are only K-Pop group to have FIVE NUMBER ONE albums and a Gold Record for “Sorry Sorry” in the Philippines.
Close to 3,000 Super Junior fans trooped to Astroplus The Block SM North Edsa, Music One One Greenbelt and Odyssey SM Megamall last July 3rd, some as early as 6:00AM, in order to attend Finding Miina Day , the Bonamana Album Launch Event organized by Universal Records and Super Junior United Philippines and get their advance copies of Super Junior’s 4th album “Bonamana” Version A & B plus its freebies. The main event during that day was the photo taking of Super Junior fans with the portraits of each member. According to one of the record store’s personnels, “Bonamana” is also one of their fastest-selling CDs this year. Universal Records confirms this by saying that the sales of “Bonamana” CD has reached the 1 MILLION PESO mark in just 4 HOURS! They also predict “Bonamana” will achieve GOLD RECORD status in less than a month, which will be Super Junior’s 2ND GOLD RECORD after “Sorry Sorry”!
Congratulations Pinoy ELFs for another achievement ! Universal Records is gearing up for the release of Super Junior’s “Bonamana” Version C. Watch out for further announcements here!
