Korean ballad group 2AM's first full-length album "Saint o'clock" has landed on the No. 1 spot on a music chart in Taiwan.
The website for the prestigious G-Music chart showed Wednesday that 2AMs latest album "Saint o'clock" topped its weekly K-J POP chart as of November 18, just a week after the album's release in the country on November 12.
The album is 2AM's first full-length release in Korea after several singles but their first-ever release in Taiwan. The record has also gone on sale in China, Hong Kong, Singapore, the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand.
Over 20 media outlets from neighboring Asian countries had turned up at the showcase for the album in Korea on October 20 where 2AM introduced the newest release and announced their plans to expand their singing career into markets overseas.
Meanwhile, "Saint o'clock" has fared well in Korea as well, with its title track "You Wouldn't Answer My Calls" taking the top slots of numerous major music charts for several weeks straight.
The group is currently preparing for a nationwide tour which kicks off at University's Hwaseong Tiger Dome on December 24.
2AM composed of members Jo Kwon, Jinwoon, Seulong and Changmin, debuted in 2008 with single "This Song" which immediately topped Korea's music charts.
They are known for their hit ballads including "Can't Let You Go Even If I Die" and "I Did Wrong" as well as having branched out into various facets of the entertainment industry such as hosting radio shows and appearing on variety programs.
