[ORICON NEWS JAPAN] 100330

Korean group of five, TVXQ accomplished a splendid achievement for the first time in 31 years. Their 30th single “Toki wo Tomete” which is released last week on the 24th made the first place of the single ranking with 195,000 pieces in sales.

Also on the 4/5 week raking at Oricon, their new album “TVXQ NONSTOP – MIX VOL.2″ entered the third place of the album ranking with 38,000 sales. Both with their single and album sale, TVXQ recorded TOP 3 at the same timeline.

For both single and album sales to be the top 3 in the ranking in Japan by the overseas artist was achieved 15 years 3 months ago by Mariah Carey’s “Lover’s Christmas” (single ranking/third place) & “Merry Christmas” (Album ranking/first place) in 1995.

For the male foreign artist, it is the first time after 31 years 8 months which was achieved by Billy Joel on 07/31/1978, with his single and album, “Stranger” (single ranking/ third place) & “Stranger” (LP/third place).

TVXQ’s first place acquisition of their single piece is the second time this year, after their single piece “BREAK OUT!” which was released this January, and it is the continuation in a series of eight first places in total by TVXQ. (*Their eight single pieces made top/number one in sales ranking in Japan.)

Their single piece “Toki wo Tomete” which was released last month on the 17th is single cut music from their best album “BEST SELECTION 2010”.

In addition, their album “TVXQ NONSTOP – MIX VOL.2″ is their second re-mixture album following “TVXQ NONSTOP – MIX VOL.1″ which was released in 2007. “TVXQ NONSTOP – MIX VOL.2″ includes, “Doshite Kimi wo Sukininatte Shimattandaro“, and “Beautiful You”, etc.
