As a soloist, Kim Jae Joong was able to overcome fierce competition from 2PM (#2), Super Junior (#3), and TVXQ (#4) to top the chart, and thus garnering much attention for the feat.
Meanwhile in the daily best-selling album chart at Japan’s Tower Record for February 2nd, Kim Jae Joong overtook Big Bang and Japanese diva Amuro Namie to come in at 6th spot.
Since November of 2013, Kim Jae Joong has been holding his 1st Album Asia Tour in Japanese cities like Osaka, Yokohama, and Nagoya where he has performed in front of over 100,000 fans.
【JaeJoong, Thank you!】Thank you for your hard work during the two days in Nagoya! We know no others like you, who put your emotions, so deep as if it hurts, into the songs. From the past to the present, and to the future, it’s only you. The songs you sing reflect who you are. Thank you so much for bringing warmth to this night.
JYJ‘s Junsu (XIA) has topped the overall daily chart at Japan Tower Records with his second full-length album, “Incredible.”
In addition, he ranked at number two after Japanese group NEWS on the overall weekly chart (July 15-July 21). He also placed first on the weekly K-Pop chart.
A source close to Junsu stated, “Junsu’s album ranked number one on Tower Records’ overall pre-order rankings before the release, which raised the anticipation of Japanese fans. It is amazing that Junsu was able to rank first and second without being able to do album promotions, surpassing other Japanese artists.
Junsu moves on with his solo Asia tour from Thailand on July 28 to Shanghai, Seoul August 3-4, and Busan August 10-11.
