John Park Reaches First Place in Album Sales
John Park has reached first place in sales for his debut album, stirring buzz in the entertainment industry.
Park, reached number one on Hanteo, which tracks the sales of music albums, on February 26 and his album has continued to sell solidly. His album even sold 13,000 copies alone on February 24 leading to additional copies having to be rushed. What′s more surprising is the fact he has managed to accomplish all this in the tightly competitive idol-dominated music scene.
Park’s agency, Music Farm, spoke about the album’s success with enews on February 26 saying, “We even heard some places sold out their shipments entirely early on resulting in additional shipments having to be rushed over.”
Park’s mini album, Knock, was released on February 22 with the title track Falling and additional songs, Why is it like that, It shouldn’t be like this. Good Day and That song, and has managed to enter into the top ten of Naver and Daum’s real-time music charts.
Music Farm continued, “The quality of John Parks’ debut album as well as its unique color that differs from today’s trends in music is being well received by the hearts of music fans.”
This album took nearly a year to produce and release since Park first joined Music Farm and its label mates such as Kim Dong Ryul, Lee Juk and Cherry Filter, in April of last year. The title song Falling was written by Andy Platts, the leader of the English band Mamas Gun, and the song’s lyrics and producing done by Park himself.
