The album sales for Super Junior’s 5th album ‘Mr. Simple’ exceeded 500,000 copies.
According to the Gaon chart announced on the 12th, Super Junior’s 5th album ‘Mr. Simple,’ which was released on August 3rd, sold a total of 502,830 copies by the end of March this year.
Especially, Super Junior’s record of half-million sales follows those set by Kim Gun Mo’s 8th album ‘Hestory,’ released in 2003, and TVXQ!’s 4th album ‘MIROTIC,’ released in 2008, and is meaningful in that it helps revitalize the depressed album market and increase the interest in KPOP all over the world.
Also, Super Junior’s 5th album had swept 1st place on various music charts not only in Korea, but also in Taiwan, Thailand and the Philippines. Super Junior’s ‘Mr. Simple’ has currently been holding the 1st place on Taiwan’s KKBOX chart for 34 consecutive weeks following ‘BONAMANA,’ which set the new record of 63 weeks at No.1.
In addition, Super Junior drew audiences totaling over 500,000 people through their three previous Asia tours.
Meanwhile, Super Junior became the first Korean group to hold a solo concert in Paris, France on April 6th and they are scheduled to hold ‘SUPER SHOW4’ in Shanghai, China on April 14th and Jakarta, Indonesia on April 28th and 29th.
