Regular readers of my Astrovision and Astroplus Music Charts know that I’ve been experiencing difficulties recently acquiring my copy of that chart. So I was really happy to find out that the Korean girl group f(x) became Number 1 for the week of June 14 to June 20 after a very successful Special f(x) Fan Day.
Based on the sales trends, K-Pop albums launched by Universal Records usually top the charts after each of their Fan Day Events. So I really expect f(x) to do well in the Odyssey Music & Video Store Charts which is released a week later.
Reports have confirmed that this is the group’s first time to top an international chart. So I’m sure f(x) fans, especially the local fan group Perf(x)tion Philippines, are very proud for being a part of this moment in the group’s career.
According to Newsen, their agency have even commented that “f(x) was ranked number 1 on the Philippine albums chart and they have learned about this news, they have showed their happiness for topping an overseas chart for the first time”.
Thanks to Blueprincess824 @ dailykpopnews for the info and to Universal Records for the photo.
