Kim Jung Hoon recently ranked fifth on the Oricon daily album chart with his Japanese album Voice.
The album, which was released in Japan on May 23, ranked fifth on the Oricon daily album chart on the day of its release. It includes 10 songs and “Orion,” “Fragile,” and “Love Love Love” are getting a lot of attention.
A spokesperson for Kim says, “His album ranked fifth on the Oricon daily chart right after it was released. The album is a cover album which includes remakes of songs that were sung by female singers who were popular in the 80s and 90s. The record proves that Kim is very popular in Japan even though he took a 2 year break.”
An official for Kim says, “Japanese officials in the album business are also surprised. We worried a lot about this return because he had such a long break. We didn’t expect this to happen. It’s very meaningful to us since he is competing against Hallyu idol stars.”
Kim previously played the role of a neurosurgeon named Lee Jae Ha in SBS’s series Foolish Mom.
