Daily Kpop News | TVXQ Sales in Japan: 129 Billion Won!

TVXQ ranked second in Japan’s album and DVD sales rankings this year.

According to the ’2010 Artistes’ Total Sales Ranking’ (tallied up till November 22nd), released by Oricon Biz Online on the 6th, TVXQ ranked second behind popular Japanese group Arashi. By ranking higher than Japan’s representative groups such as AKB48, Ikimono-gakari, EXILE, Kat-tun and Koda Kumi, TVXQ maintained their pride as the only Korean group amongst the groups.

It was found that TVXQ raked in sales of 9,411,500,000 Yen through singles, albums and DVD releases this year, which amounts to approximately 129 billion Won (112,081,694.21 U.S. Dollars or 4,958,494,340.17 Philippine Pesos)

Their accomplishments predicted such an achievement beginning with their single ‘Break Out’, which was released in January and sold over 250,000 copies in five days, making TVXQ the foreign artiste with the most singles ranked #1 on the weekly charts (7 times).

Also, their ‘Best Selection 2010′ album sold 413,000 copies in a week in February and their DVDs, such as their ‘TVXQ History in Japan Special’, were very popular as well.

TVXQ were able to prove that their popularity in Japan has not changed as they were able to achieve such feats although they have not been active due to YoungWoong Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun and Xiah Junsu’s legal dispute with SM Entertainment.
