Kim Hyun Joong’s “Break Down” is a hot seller


Kim Hyun Joong’s first mini album “Break Down” has achieved sales of 100,000 albums just two weeks after its full release and making him the first solo artist to do so this year.

The “Kim Hyun Joong syndrome” is in full force at the moment. In a recent official album showcase at Seoul Junggu Janchung Gymnasium, 4,000 fans came to flare his full-fledged solo activities, while his title song “Break Down” quickly became a sensation on the music programs.
On the 22nd, music album sales tracking site, Hanteo Chart, reported that almost 2 weeks after the release, sales for his album rose by 80,000. Adding to the already 20,000+ copies already sold, he
has broken the threshold of 100,000 albums sold.
A little over a decade ago, before the advent of digital internet media, 1 million album sales were readily available but album sales are not easy to raise in the current music situation. Additionally, solo
artist releases are a bit more difficult in this current idol group market craze.
With this in mind, this makes Kim Hyun Joong’s efforts significant and keeps him in company of other idol groups such as TVXQ and Big Bang.
One music official stated, “The burden of Kim Hyun Joong’s solo comeback has paid off as he has a positive impact on the music industry and inspired the music industry to become alive again.”
In August, Kim Hyun Joong plans to start his Asia tour in 9 different locations.
