Twice tops Japan's Oricon chart for fifth straight day

K-pop group Twice has led Japan's main music chart for the fifth day, with combined sales of its latest single album in the country poised to soon break the 200,000 mark, its agency said Monday.

"One More Time," released in Japan last Wednesday, held on to the pole position on Oricon's Daily Single Chart as of Monday morning, according to JYP Entertainment. Combined sales stand at 191,157 copies to date.

Twice has become the fastest-selling K-pop girl group album in Japan based on first week figures. The previous record holder was Kara, who sold 122,820 copies of "Jet Coaster Love" during its first week in 2011.
