This isn’t bad considering there is almost no promotion. For comparison with previous single sales on the first day:
110622 50,270 Replay
110830 25,595 JULIETTE
111012 18,409 LUCIFER
120516 28,045 Sherlock

FYI, Lucifer sold more (over 20,000) on the 2nd day.
2nd day sales & ranking: 3rd 8,889
This doesn’t look good (well, not too behind compared to Lucifer JP?). Can this be because some JP fans who bought the Korean version don’t buy this JP version? because this was released too soon after the Korean one? I’m afraid the weekly sales may not even reach 50K.
*FYI, Lucifer JP sales in 1st week:
18,409 + 20,426 + 3,689 + 2,424 + 1,761…=50,398
3rd day sales & ranking: 3rd 3,991
*I think Sherlock JP will make 50K at least. A more positive view is that SHINee can sell this much even without any promotion, that SHINee has a solid fanbase in Japan.
4th day sales & ranking: 3rd 2,971
