JYJ's Junsu achieves a new record on Gaon Chart with 'TARANTALLEGRA'!


JYJ Junsu's solo album, 'TARANTALLEGRA', is seeing a lot of success despite the lack of broadcast promotions.

It has passed the 120,000 sales mark, achieving a new record on Gaon! AGaon Chart representative commented, "XIA - TARANTALLEGRAhas reached the 120,000 mark last week, and recorded the highest number by a solo artist on Gaon Chart... This is the biggest number of sales for a solo artist since Gaon Chart was established. Even though there hasn't been any broadcast promotions, because this is an album with a variety of genres incorporated into it, it has brought in new fans in addition to existing fans."

As well as his domestic success in Korea, Junsu's music video is gaining interest in China.Back in May, the music video for 'TARANTALLEGRA' achieved first place on Chinese music video website Yin Yue Tai's monthly chart.Junsu's record label representatives from C-JeS Entertainment commented on the feat, saying, "We know that the people of China have difficulty in accessing Youtube and Twitter, and that any album that rises on their music video site reflects the public interest and standards of China. There is a great significance attached to [Junsu's] accomplishment, especially considering the fact that 'TARANTALLEGRA' ranked above the music videos of Super Junior and Taetiseo, who both have had broadcast performances and promotions."

Furthermore, Junsu's Asia Tour is in the process of achieving great success. This past May, Junsu held a series of 10 concerts at the Jamsil Stadium in Korea, selling out 15,000 seats. His tour stops in Thailand, Indonesia, and Taiwan, have also sold out.

In light of Junsu's recent achievements, C-JeS Entertainment's CEO Baek Chang Joo stated, "We expected the restriction from broadcasting activity, and decided to take a more direct approach. We set our goals on making an album of 12 songs, enlisting the best American choreographer, and organizing a series of perfect concerts. Furthermore, we produced a world class quality music video and didn't hesitate in investing in it, and the outcome was a success. I believe this was possible because we had belief and confidence in Junsu's ability as an artist."
