TVXQ and Kim Hyun Joong have achieved gold status in Japan.
The Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ) announced that TVXQ’s latest single “Android” and its Japan concert tour DVD ‘Tone’ have both been certified ‘Gold’, after selling more than 100,000 copies.
In addition, Kim Hyun Joong has also registered high sales of around 183,000 copies in just a week after his new single ‘HEAT’ went on sale on July 4, giving the singer a ‘Gold’ certification as well.
The success of both records was predictable, as they easily moved over 100,000 records in just a week after the album’s release. The two stars have been breaking numerous records which have been built by themselves or former Hallyu stars on Oricon’s chart.
Meanwhile, TVXQ completed a large-scale tour concert for 550,000 fans, and also concluded a fan meet with 100,000 fans while Kim Hyun Joong is currently busy filming his new drama, City Conquest’.
