[trans] 110210 JYJ Takes 4 Spots In The Top 20 Charts For 2010 Without Any Broadcasting Activities
The group JYJ (Jaejoong, Yoochun, Junsu) gained attention as they took up 4 of the Top 20 spots on the Gaon Chart Total Album Sales for 2010.
JYJ’s Worldwide Album “The Beginning” recorded sales of 99,903 and took 8th place, with “The Beginning (New Limited Edition)” and “Luxury Edition” recording sales of 98,311 and 92,649 at 10th and 11th place respectively.
Also, the OST for KBS 2TV’s Drama “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” which starred Park Yoochun, sold 76,951 copies, and was at the 13th placing. It was the only OST that made it on the chart.
For JYJ, who is embroiled in a lawsuit with former management company SM Entertainment, who have been restricted from participating in music show recordings and other broadcasting activities, these are their results and rankings. This is the difference between them and other artists. And this also shows the existence of JYJ’s strong fanbase and star power.
On another note, “The Beginning” which saw contributions by the world-famous artist Kanye West, as well as the famous producer who worked with Michael Jackson, Rodney Jerkins, has garnered attention not only from the fans but also from people in the recording industry, even before sales had started. It was also ranked 5th in the American Billboard Chart for Readers’ favourite albums of 2010.
