K-pop girl group Girls' Generation topped local music charts with its new LP "Lion Heart."

On Wednesday, eponymous lead track "Lion Heart," which was released at noon on Tuesday, ranked No. 1 on five charts -- Genie, Bugs, Soribada, Naver Music and Monkey 3. Another lead track "You Think," which was released at midnight, ranked No.1 on two other charts -- Mnet and Olleh Music -- while following a close second place on four charts.

The eight-member group's fifth studio album contains 12 songs with double lead track. Girls' Generation will perform onstage Friday on KBS music programme "Music Bank." Following the appearance, the group will continue its promotion on MBC's "Show! Music Core" on Saturday and SBS' "Inkigayo" on Sunday.

Earlier in July, Girls' Generation released the single "Party" ahead of the full-length album, topping local charts and music ranking programs.
