This year, TVXQ! sets a record on Japanese Oricon Weekly Charts for the most number of “First Place” rankings this year.
The group’s 24th single, “MIROTIC,” was released in Japan on October 15th and on the day of its release, the album took first place on Oricon’s Single and Weekly Charts.
MIROTIC is TVXQ!’s fourth single to rank first on the Oricon Weekly Charts, following “Purple Line” (January release), “Beautiful You” (April release), and “How Did I End Up Loving You” (July release).
“This is the first time anyone has ranked first on the Oricon Weekly Singles Chart four times in one year,” said a TVXQ! representative from SM Entertainment agency. He added, “This has never happened with a Japanese singer, let alone a group from overseas, and it proves that TVXQ! has become a top group in Japan, as well.”
MIROTIC is also the title track of TVXQ!’s fourth album in Korea, where the song has also proved to be successful. The title track ranked first place for the past two weeks on SBS TV’s “Popular Music” program and on the weekly charts of the music website, “Dosirak.”
