Kim Hyun Joong is Fifth on Billboard World Album Chart
Singer Kim Hyun Joong’s second mini album Lucky is currently fifth on the Billboard World Album Chart.
According to Billboard, the album claimed the fifth spot on the World Album Chart on October 21. The accomplishment is particularly notable because it points to Kim’s potential for success in the American music market. Super Junior, 2NE1 and Park Jae Bum have appeared on the chart in the past as well.
Kim ranked number one on the Biggest Jump chart as well, confirming the singer’s growing popularity in Asia and beyond.
Lucky made the Billboard chart just 10 days after its release, which is significant considering the Korean album was not officially released overseas and Kim is not promoting it in the U.S.
The mini album swept online and mobile music charts upon its release in Korea on October 11.
From the beat-heavy, band sound of rock and roll track Do You Like That to the official single Lucky Guy, the album contains a total of five tracks that showcase Kim’s various charms.
