Wow! It’s been such a long-time since I updated the Astrovision/Astroplus Charts! I checked my last post of the complete charts and it was way back in June 10 when T-ara was the top K-Pop album at #2. Hopefully, I can finally bring this back among my regular posts since these charts are very important to determine how well your favorite K-Pop artists are selling their albums.
After a long hiatus, I finally bring back the charts from one of the biggest record bars in the country.
Bonamana Version C by Super Junior continues to be strong on the Astrovision/Astroplus charts. It stays at #2 among all foreign albums and #4 overall. The album had previously topped the chart for the week of August 23 to 29 when it was first released. The Bonamana album has had multiple versions so I am still at awe at all the fans who continue to support the group.
I’m always happy to see other K-Pop artists on the charts so imagine my surprise when I saw Back To The Basic by Rain at #4 among foreign albums and #13 overall. I’m not a big fan of Polyeast Records, the label distributing his album locally, since I feel they haven’t done enough marketing and promotions to take advantage of Rain’s concert in the country last week. In any case, it seems like Rain is doing well on his own.
Also on the charts is Hit Your Heart by 4Minute at #10 in the foreign chart. This is quite interesting since their album was released about a month ago already – August 28 to be exact. Looks like some fans who weren’t able to get their albums then finally managed to save up for their copies.
