SEOUL, Oct. 31 (Korea Bizwire) — K-pop boy band TVXQ rewrote Japanese Oricon music chart history by having six albums hit the top of the weekly chart, a first by any foreign artist group, its agency said Tuesday.
S.M. Entertainment said “FINE COLLECTION～Begin Again～” became their latest album to rank first on the weekly chart. The duo’s previous five albums — “Best Selection 2010,” “Tone” in 2011, “Time” in 2013, “Tree” and “With” in 2014 — also topped the chart.
With the latest feat, the K-pop band beats records held by Simon & Garfunkel and Bon Jovi.
One of K-pop’s first-generation boy bands, the group has returned to the K-pop scene earlier this year after finishing mandatory military conscription.
TVXQ will embark on a concert tour “TVXQ Live Tour 2017 ~Begin Again~” in five Japanese cities including Tokyo and Osaka, on Nov. 11.
