The single also broke the previous record for first-week sales of a Japanese release by a K-pop girl group, which was set by TWICE themselves, with their first Japanese single “One More Time.”
“Candy Pop” also set a new record for the highest album sales by any K-pop girl group in Japan. on the day of its release.
Not just that, TWICE also spend its third consecutive day at the top of the Oricon daily chart. Many industry observers speculate that “Candy Pop,” the group’s fastest-selling Japanese release yet, will become its third release to go platinum in Japan.

According to the RIAJ’s certification thresholds, albums are certified platinum once they reach 250,000 sales.
