[News] 2PM’s debut Japanese single, “Take Off”, tops Tower Records pre-order chart

Source: allkpop

Although 2PM’s debut in Japan is still a month away, their debut single “Take Off” has been topping many pre-order charts, especially with Tower Records‘!

Tower Records Japan revealed that all three versions of the single placed in the top three slots of their chart. “Take Off” will be distributed in ‘Regular Edition‘, ‘Limited Edition Version A (CD + DVD)‘, and ‘Limited Edition Version B (CD + Photo book)‘.

Many are expecting 2PM to grab an ‘all-kill’, for they could very well combine the future successes of “Take Off” with their past Oricon Charts domination. The boys made headlines late last year when their Japanese DVD, “Hottest“, ranked extremely high for both its pre-sales and sales figures.

JYP Japan stated, “2PM’s last Japanese endeavor with their DVD raised many expectations and created much interest in the group. 2PM will start their full-fledged activities in Japan, and will do their best to be successful. Whether in Korea or Japan, always cheer them on.
