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.
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 ^^
