    Tohoshinki Once Again Breaks Oricon Charts Record

    Post by shana on Tue 30 Mar - 4:42

    5-member Korean group Tohoshinki, achieved a feat that hasn’t been accomplished since 31 years ago. Last week on 24 March, they released their 30th single [Toki Wo Tomete]. With the amount of 195,000 copies sold in the first week, it earned them #1 on the weekly Oricon singles charts.

    On another note, [TVXQ Nonstop-Mix Vol.2] was also released along with the single [Toki Wo Tomete]. It had a huge number of 38,000 copies sold, earning TVXQ #3 on the album charts. As overseas artists, both TVXQ’s single and album were placed in the Top 3 rankings at the same time, breaking Mariah Carey’s record of [All I Want For Christmas Is You] (single #3) and [Merry Christmas>] (album #1) since 1995, a record of 15 years and 3 months. As overseas male artists, TVXQ also broke Billy Joel’s record of [The Stranger] (single #3) and [The Stranger] (LP album #3) since 1978, a record of 31 years and 8 months.
    (T/N: Following paragraph translated from Japanese original article)
    This is the second single this year that achieved #1 on the Oricon weekly charts, the first being [BREAK OUT!], which was released in January this year. Altogether, this is their 8th work to achieve first on the charts. [Toki Wo Tomete] was also released as part of the [BEST SELECTION 2010] album that was released on 17 February 2010. Also, [TVXQ Nonstop-MIX VOL.2] is the second remix album released, following [TVXQ Nonstop-MIX VOL.1] which was released in 2007, and this album includes songs like [Beautiful You] and [どうして君を好きになってしまったんだろう].

    t/n: the record is for having both the single & album in the top 3 of the charts at the same time
