Seventeen again tops Japanese chart with single ‘Fallin’ Flower’

Boy group Seventeen topped Japan’s Oricon weekly singles chart with its second Japanese single, “Fallin’ Flower,” for the first time, its agency Pledis Entertainment said Tuesday.

Since topping the Oricon daily singles chart last Thursday, the group has sold over 334,000 copies. Its first Japanese single, “Happy Ending,” also sold over 200,000 copies during the week of its release.

It is the first time for a foreign boy group to sell over 200,000 copies of its singles twice in a row in Japan, the agency added.

In the single “Fallin’ Flower,” the lyrics use the metaphor of the flower as a signal of a new beginning, rather than the end. Members Woozi and Dino helped to write lyrics, and Woozi also contributed in the song’s composition.
