[NEWS] JYJ’s Junsu, Album Sales Ranked The Highest For Any Solo Artist Since The Gaon Charts Were Established
JYJ’s Kim Junsu (XIA)’s first solo album since his debut has been producing shocking results.
On 11 June, C-Jes Entertainment expressed, “The sales for Kim Junsu’s solo album “XIA-Tarantallegra” surpassed 120,000 copies last week, and has set the highest record on the Gaon Chart cumulative sales charts since the charts began.
Management personnel of the Gaon charts expressed, “It is the highest sales recorded for a solo album since the Gaon charts began. Although there have not been broadcast activities, as it is an album with a variety of genres, aside from the original fans, there are also many cases of new fans going into shops looking for the album.”
In addition, Kim Junsu’s solo album has also been very popular in China. Kim Junsu’s “XIA-Tarantallegra” ranked number 1 on the YinYueTai charts for the month of May.
CEO Baek Chang Ju of Kim Junsu’s management agency, C-Jes Entertainment, stated, “The restrictions in terms of television broadcast promotions were expected, so we chose a straightforward approach. We produced a full-length album with 12 tracks, and set producing a perfect full concert as our goal, by working with a top choreographer from America. Also, we spared no expense to produce a high-quality MV, which brought much success. I think that it was only made possible because of the trust in the artist (Kim Junsu).”
On another note, Kim Junsu released the dance version MV of “XIA-Tarantallegra” at 2pm on 11 June via the official Youtube channel.
