Korean boy band MBlaq’s best-of album reached the ninth spot on Oricon’s daily album chart on the day of its release on Wednesday.
The album, titled “Memories Best in Korea,” comprises of the group’s hit songs “Y” and Mona Lisa,” both sung in Japanese.
The Korean band is no stranger to the Japanese music charts, having secured second place on the singles chart on October 26 with its second single “Baby U!” The song achieved the phenomenal feat on the day that it was released.
On March 14, the five-member group is slated to release a second best-of album. The band is currently promoting its song “Run” in Korea.
At a recent taping of the song on “M Countdown!” on March 1, band member Seung-ho was rushed to the hospital after collapsing. MBlaq’s agency calmed fans, telling them that he was in stable condition.
