Kim Hyun Joong Breaks DBSK’s record with “HEAT”
Currently Kim Hyun Joong’s second Japanese single album “Heat” is really heating up! After its release on July 4, “Heat” has already reached 138,000 in sales in a day and reached #1 on the Oricon Daily Chart. This beats Kim Hyun Joong’s own record for his Japanese debut album “Kiss Kiss/Lucky Guy” that sold 72,000 copies. But, it also beat DBSK’s record. In January, DBSK’s “Why” had sold 133,000 copies on the day of its release.
“Heat” created a lot of waves when it was revealed that the famous Japanese musician “B’Z” had worked on the album.
A representative in Japan stated, “The response for Kim Hyun Joong’s album ‘Heat’ is explosive. Kim Hyun Joong’s Japanese popularity and the high quality producing of ‘B’Z’ have created a great synergy. We believe this is the reason for the success of ‘Heat.’”
On July 7, Kim Hyun Joong will hold a handshake event in Osaka.
