The nine-member girl group expanded their singing career into Japan in August this year and both their Japanese singles "Gee" and "Genie" have become certified gold disks in the country, selling over 100,000 copies each.

They have enjoyed a success return to the local music scene with their new song "Hoot" from their third mini-album of the same name, topping numerous online and offline music charts since its release October 25.
