‘Catch Me’ if you can: TVXQ is No. 1
Gaon Chart, the nation’s official music ranking organization, announced last month’s sales records - and TVXQ has come out on top.
According to results for October, the duo’s new album “Catch Me” sold 131,882 copies, taking the No. 1 spot, leaps ahead of Psy, who sold 28,359 copies of his sixth album, and Epik High, who sold 27,161 copies of its new release.
To date, TVXQ’s album has sold more than 246,838 copies since being released on Sept. 26.
The title track was ranked 71st on the Gaon General Chart, surprising many.
The duo’s album has been eagerly anticipated by fans, as it is TVXQ’s first in more than 20 months.
Earlier in the year, the two remaining members of the boy band, which was formed in 2003, toured Japan. The “Tone” tour ended in April and drew more than 550,000 fans.
The shows were jam-packed with dynamic performances and speeches given by the band in Japanese.
