Korean rock band CNBLUE's first full-length album "FIRST STEP" has placed at the No. 1 spot on a music chart in Taiwan.

According to Taiwan's G-MUSIC during the week of April 1 to 7, CNBLUE's new release "FIRST STEP" took the top spot under the J-POP category, further solidifying their popularity in the country after going double platinum in the country last year with "Bluetory" and "Blue Love."

"We were surprised to see that 'FIRST STEP' came in first place on the music chart even though it hasn't officially gone on sale in the country yet," an official from the group's agency FNC Music was quoted as saying. "The boys and the rest of agency are extremely pleased to hear this news."

CNBLUE -- composed of members Jung Yong-hwa, Kang Min-hyuk, Lee Jong-hyun and Lee Jung-shin -- made their debut in Korea early last with their hit single "Alone" and mini-album "Bluetory" after releasing two singles in Japan.

The boys have been enjoying a successful return to the music scene with "FIRST STEP," receiving over 100,000 pre-orders and having sold 30,000 copies of their special limited edition of the album.

They have also been dominating a number of online music charts with "Intuition" and have scored various wins on televised music programs.
