On May 16, Kim topped the Oricon’s Daily Chart with the DVD of his live concert in Japan titled First Impact. It also topped the Oricon’s DVD Weekly Chart as over 16,000 copies were sold.
It’s the second time that a foreign solo singer topped the Oricon DVD Weekly Chart after Micheal Jackson with Micheal Jackson Vision in 2010. It’s especially more meaningful because Kim is the first Korean solo singer to set such a record.
BoA ranked third with 8 Films & More in 2003 and Jang Keun Suk ranked fourth with Jang Keun Suk 2011 Asia Tour Last in Seoul in 2011. However, Kim set a new record on the chart and he’s attracting wide attention both in Korea and Japan.
Its Blu-ray Disc version also ranked third on the Oricon’s Blu-ray Disc Chart with over 7,000 copies being sold.
Kim has recently finished his fan meetings in Singapore, Hong Kong, and Taiwan and will hold large-scale fan meetings in four cities of China from June.
