SEOUL, Oct. 10 (Yonhap) -- "BDZ," the first Japanese full-length album by South Korean girl band TWICE, has been certified platinum by Japan's recording industry association, the group's agency said Wednesday.
The album, released on Sept. 12, recently received the certification from the Recording Industry Association of Japan for selling more than 250,000 copies, JYP Entertainment said.
It became the fifth album or song by the nine-member act to be certified platinum by the association after its Japanese debut compilation album "#TWICE," and the three singles "One More Time," "Candy Pop" and "Wake Me Up."
The latest album has stayed atop Oricon's daily songs chart for seven days since its release. It also took the top title on Billboard Japan's "Hot Album," "Download Album" and "Top Album Sales" lists.
The band, currently on tour in Japan, is set to perform at the World Memorial Hall in Kobe from Oct. 12-14 and at Musashino Forest Sports Plaza Main Arena in Tokyo on Oct. 16 and 17.
On Oct. 28, it will hold a fan meet-and-greet event called "Once Halloween" on the outdoor stage of Yonsei University to celebrate the third anniversary of its debut.
