SHINee piques interest in Taiwan
The recent performance of SHINee’s new EP “Sherlock” in Taiwan is proving what the group’s members already knew about themselves - Their popularity isn’t limited to Korea.
The EP reached the No. 1 spot on Taiwan’s G-Music Asia Chart and Five Music K-pop and J-pop Chart over the past week. It also reached the top spot on the Kunang Nan K-pop and J-pop Chart for the week running from April 20 to April 26. And on Sunday, Taiwan’s leading radio chart show “Hit FM” picked “Sherlock” as its No. 1 track.
Meanwhile, SHINee is currently touring Japan and will perform from today until Saturday in Nagoya. It already held concerts in Fukuoka on April 25 and in Hokkaido on Sunday.
The tour will continue until July 1 and will eventually encompass a total of 20 concerts in seven cities.
The original tour consisted of 14 performances, but the group’s management decided to add six more shows after tickets for the planned concerts sold out almost instantly.
