According to the Oricon chart, the girls' record "KARA BEST 2007-2010," which went on sale in the country on September 29, came in second place with 18,223 copies sold, following behind Japanese songstress JUJUs album Request, which went on sale the same day, with 19,974 copies.
Kara, who signed with Universal Music Group's sub-label Universal Music Sigma for their music activities in Japan, have made a successful debut into the country which came in May.

They will be releasing their second Japanese single in early November.
