Kim Hyun Joong Places 5th on Billboard World Chart

Singer and actor Kim Hyun Joong has proven that he has the potential to become a world star. 

Kim Hyun Joong’s new album “Lucky” took up a confident 5th place spot on the Billboard World Chart for the week of Ocotber 29, 2011. This album also the took the title of “Biggest Jump” on the chart, a huge signifier that his popularity has the potential to reach beyond Asia and to the rest of the world. 

This achievement has more significance as he has not directly promoted overseas yet. For a male soloist to be put on the billboard chart with a Korean album is an unprecedented achievement. 

Kim Hyun Joong, who is focusing his activities in Korea now, will be taking the stage in Japan next month. Starting November 9 he will travel to seven Japanese cities (Osaka, Sapporo, Sendai, Hiroshima, Yokohama, Nagoya, Fukuoka) for a period of 15 days and meet 30,000 fans nationwide. 

Congratulations on the achievement!
