100915 Tohoshinki’s Trio Sets A New Record for Foreign Artist, W (Double) Achievements

The first live DVD of Tohoshinki’s members JUNSU/JEJUNG/YUCHUN “THANKSGIVING LIVE IN DOME” (rhymthzone, released on 9/8) sold a total of 119,000 copies in the first week, snatching the top spot of Oricon DVD Weekly Chart.

Their album “The…” which was released on the same day also ranks first on the Oricon Album Weekly Chart, selling 140,000 copies. The last artist who held a record of having both album and DVD ranked first on both charts was ZARD with their album “Golden Best ~15th Anniversary~” and DVD “ZARD Le Portfolio 1991-2006”, which were released on 11/6/2006. The record was made 3 years and 10 months ago, with ZARD being the 6th artist to do so. For a foreign artist, this is the first time one has made such a brilliant achievement.

Moreover, they are the second foreign artist to sell more than 100,000 copies of a music DVD. The first artist to hold that record was Tohoshinki with “4th LIVE TOUR 2009~The Secret Code~FINAL in TOKYO DOME” (released on 10/12/2009) with 171,000 copies and “TOHOSHINKI VIDEO CLIP COLLECTION-THE ONE-” (released on 3/29/2010) with 109,000 copies.

T/N: since the reporter regards JYJ as an artist apart from Tohoshinki, they’re considered the 2nd one to achieve the 2nd achievement. for the 1st record, Tohoshinki never released an album & a DVD on the same date, so JYJ is the first to set this record as a foreign artist.

Congratulations to JaeJoong, Yoochun and Junsu! Even when they are not complete, they are still setting Oricon records. That is how amazing the boys of TVXQ are. :)
