kpoplive | Super Junior "Bonamana" Album Hits Gold in the Philippines!

Even though Super Junior’s latest album Bonamana was released around two months ago, the craze has yet to die down.

Asian pop superstar group Super Junior’s 4th album Bonamana is now certified Gold in the Philippines after just 10 days of release in the market. Super Junior holds the distinction of being the first and only K-Pop artist with two Gold record albums in the Philippines – first time was for the Sorry Sorry album last December 2009, and now the Bonamana album this July.

Bonamana albums are enjoying brisk sales in record stores nationwide. In fact, it charted number one in three of the country’s biggest record retail chains simultaneously – Astroplus/Astrovision, Music One & Odyssey (album charts dated June 28 to July 4, 2010).

The album launch event entitled Finding Miina was able to reach the 1 Million PHP mark (around $21,612.28 USD) in a span of hours. That’s pretty amazing, isn’t it?

Other than that, Super Junior is also the first, and only, K-Pop artist with five albums that reached number one in the country – Sorry Sorry in September 2009, Super Girl in November 2009, Super Show 2 Live Album in February 2010, Don’t Don in May 2010 and now, Bonamana this July 2010.

The power of the ELFs in terms of supporting their favorite idol group is really admirable.

Super Junior albums are released in the Philippines by Universal Records, the first record label to release K-Pop albums in the country.
