Kim Jaejoong’s pre-released song ‘Sunny Day’ has taken over iTunes Japan chart once again.
C-Jes Entertainment official said, “Last Oct 15, Kim Jaejoong’s pre-released song ‘Sunny Day’ topped iTunes Japan. Last January, his pre-released song ‘One Kiss’ also ranked number one in the chart. Also, JYJ’s Only One, his mini-albums I and Y also topped singles and album charts respectively, making it 5 golden crowns.”
Official said, “A song by a Korean singer topping Japan music charts is great. It shows Kim Jaejoong’s unparalleled popularity in Japan.”
Pre-orders for Kim Jaejoong’s new album also bagged 6 crowns in Rakuten, Japan’s largest online store that sells more than 120 million items. The pre-released song ‘Sunny Day’ also topped the iTunes chart in 4 countries – Japan, Thailand, Taiwan, and Hong Kong proving his reign as world star.
Pre-orders for Kim Jaejoong’s 1st full solo album will start on October 18 in online and offline stores. The album will be released on October 29 in record stores.
With the iTunes chart last Oct 15, it is the first time ever for a song whose title is in Korean language (Hangeul) to win 1st place in iTunes Japan. Including Oricon rankings, it seems like this is the first time in the history of the major music charts in Japan to have a song in Hangeul to win 1st place.
The song that won 1st place is the solo song of JYJ’s Jejung called “햇살 좋은날 Shiny Day (feat. 이상곤)”, with that, Jaejoong has 2 number 1 songs this year.
When you search all music charts in Japan, one can’t find a title song in Hangeul to have ever ranked number 1. Therefore, it seems that “햇살 좋은날 Shiny Day (feat. 이상곤)” is the first one to have that record in history.
Songs from abroad winning 1st place is not unusual, around 99.9% of these songs have English titles (sometimes written in Katakana). There is none, however, from a Korean singer with full Korean lyrics and Korean title, that won 1st place.
It should be noted that a song by Tsuyoshi Kusanagi *, released in 2002, called Ai no Uta ~Chonmaru Sarangheyo (愛の唄 ～チョンマル サランヘヨ～), ranked no 3 in Oricon singles chart. However, the Korean part of title song is not written in Hangul but in Katakana. Therefore, a song title written in Hangul is indeed very rare.
