[NEWS] Kim Hyun Joong is first solo artist this year to hit 100,000 in sales!

Kim Hyun Joong’s first mini album “Break Down” has achieved sales of 100,000 albums just two weeks after its full release and making him the first solo artist to do so this year.

The “Kim Hyun Joong syndrome” is in full force at the moment. In a recent official album showcase at Seoul Junggu Janchung Gymnasium, 4,000 fans came to flare his full-fledged solo activities, while his title song “Break Down” quickly became a sensation on the music programs.

On the 22nd, music album sales tracking site, Hanteo Chart, reported that almost 2 weeks after the release, sales for his album rose by 80,000. Adding to the already 20,000+ copies already sold, he has broken the threshold of 100,000 albums sold.

A little over a decade ago, before the advent of digital internet media, 1 million album sales were readily available but album sales are not easy to raise in the current music situation. Additionally, solo artist releases are a bit more difficult in this current idol group market craze.

With this in mind, this makes Kim Hyun Joong’s efforts significant and keeps him in company of other idol groups such as TVXQ and Big Bang.

One music official stated, “The burden of Kim Hyun Joong’s solo comeback has paid off as he has a positive impact on the music industry and inspired the music industry to become alive again.”
In August, Kim Hyun Joong plans to start his Asia tour in 9 different locations.

[NEWS] Super Junior appointed ambassadors of ‘Seoul Summer Sale 2011

On June 17th, the members of Super Junior attended the opening ceremony for the ‘2011 Seoul Summer Sale‘, where they were appointed as its ambassadors. The group was represented by Sungmin, Ryeowook, Eunhyuk, Leeteuk, Shindong, and Yesung.

In a survey conducted earlier this year among foreigners, Super Junior clinched an overwhelming 76% of the votes when asked which celebrities should represent the Seoul Summer Sale.

The event was originally created in 2008 under the name “Seoul Grand Sale” in an effort to accommodate increasing tourism. Seoul has become a shopping mecca for tourists, many of whom are attracted to the country due to the Hallyu wave. The newly renamed “Seoul Summer Sale” will last 38 days (June 24th – July 31st), and is meant to promote the high quality and competitive pricing of the city’s shopping centers.

The mayor of Seoul, Oh Se Hoon, noted in his address, “Super Junior is a group that is not only popular in Asia, but even in Europe as well. I hope we all, including Super Junior, do our parts in representing Seoul beyond what Hallyu has to offer.” He also claimed that this year’s Seoul Summer Sale will be critical in attracting more tourists to the city.
