Guess placing first on the Oricon’s Daily DVD Chart just wasn′t enough for Kim Hyun Joong.
According to the Oricon Chart on May 23, Kim Hyun Joong’s concert DVD titled First Impact sold 16,000 copies in the first week of its release, confidently taking the number one spot for the Overall DVD Chart.
This is the second time a foreign artist has taken the number one spot on the charts, the first being Michael Jackson, with his 2011 DVD. The highest a Korean artist has gotten on this particular chart was BoA in 2003 when she placed third for her DVD, 8 Miles and More. Kim Hyun Joong has set a new record of being the first Korean to ever take the number one spot.
The content of First Impact included footage from Kim Hyun Joong’s Japanese concert tour in November of 2011, where he traveled to eight different cities, specifically focusing on his Yokohoma Arena concert in February.
While setting new records and getting published in famous news publication, Kim Hyun Joong is preparing to release a new Japanese single album titled Heat on July 4.
