Kim Hyun-joong may be the new ‘Prince of Asia’

Prince of Asia, aka Jang Keun-suk, better watch out because another Hallyu singer is about to take his place in Japan.

The contender is none other than Kim Hyun-joong, who topped the Oricon chart with his debut album “Unlimited” on the day of its release.

The new album, which was launched on Dec. 12, proved to be a success with 56,473 copies being sold on day one. Nana Mizuki and Flumpool trained in second and third place with 36,779 and 20,449 sales.

Kim’s record is even bigger than Jang’s Japanese album, “Just Crazy,” which was launched in May and sold 53,000 copies on day one.

Kim only made his debut in Japan this year and released two singles there before “Unlimited.”
