SHINee's 'SHINee The First Concert In Japan - SHINEE WORLD' DVD was released in Japan on January 11th and sold a total of 29,000 copies within the first week of sales. With this, SHINee has made their mark in history, securing the #2 spot with their DVD on the Weekly Oricon DVD chart.
According to Oricon, the only overseas male artists to rank so high on the DVD chart since April of 1999 was 2-member British group Underworld, as well as Korea's very own 2PM who previously had a DVD weekly ranking at #4.
The DVD contains footage of the boys performing at their independent concert in Tokyo last December.
In related news, the boys made a breakthrough in Japan with their first Japanese single "Replay - You Are My Everything" on June 22nd last year.
They sold 91,000 copies the first week, setting a new record for a debuting overseas artist from Korea.
