SEVENTEEN Receives Platinum Certification For 1st Japanese Single “Happy Ending”
SEVENTEEN earns another achievement under its name after its latest Japanese-language single album Happy Ending received a platinum certification from the Recording Industry Association of Japan.
RIAJ awarded the platinum certification to Happy Ending, which serves as the boy group’s first single album in Japan, after it surpassed 250,000 copies sold since its release on May 29. Additionally, the single album proved to be a success as it ranked first on Oricon’s daily singles chart and second on Oricon’s weekly singles and monthly singles charts.
Happy Ending included the tracks “Happy Ending” and the Japanese versions of SEVENTEEN’s Korean-language releases “Oh My!” and “Healing”. In commemoration of the new release, SEVENTEEN held showcases on June 7 at Yokohama and on June 12 in Kobe.
SEVENTEEN has established a strong following in Japan even before its official debut in the country in May 2018 with We Make You, which also went to earn the boy group a gold certification from RIAJ. The boys’ Korean-language releases ranked within the top ten of Japan’s Oricon chart.
Additionally, they sell out venues of their fan meetings and concerts in Japan with the HARU tour being the most recent display of the immense popularity of the boy group.
