The Gaon Album Chart is a korean national chart that ranks the best-selling albums, including mini-albums and singles released in South Korea, provided by the Korea Music Content Industry Association. The charts are made up of charts tracking domestic album sales, international album sales and a combined overall album sales in weekly, monthly and year-end format.
Kim Jaejoong’s NO.X Album was released in February 12th, 2016.
Despite Kim Jaejoong is being banned to promote his music for almost 7 years, he can’t perform on music shows, he can’t appear on variety programs and radios, etc. without promo at all, and while he is currently serving in the army, which means no fansign events, Kim Jaejoong’s NO.X Album ranked in the top 10 of Gaon Album Chart (2016 1st Half ) with 85,499 copies sold.
- Note 1: Although Gaon Chart is suppose to take the sales of Hanteo + Oricon Charts, this time seems like there is a discordance,
Just by your information, the cumulative sales of NO.X Album till February 29th was:
Hanteo Monthly Chart: 73,160
Oricon Monthly Chart: 19,930
Cumulative Sales in February: 93,090 copies sold
Since Jaejoong’s NO.X Album is released with limited copies, we are not sure how much he sold, but certainly we don’t know why Gaon Chart didn’t count Hanteo + Oricon like they do with other idols in the ranking. Either way, we are still proud that Kim Jaejoong ranked in the top 10 of Gaon Chart despite everything ^^
- Note 2: This list will change by the end of the year.
