His original solo album I blew through the charts with its release, rising to the top of the Hanteo Chart′s weekly, daily and live charts at the same time just five days after its release. It also topped album charts in Taiwan and Japan and landed on the no. 2 spot on Billboard′s World Album Chart.
An official told enews on February 7, “The 120,000 pre-ordered copies of Kim Jae Joong′s first solo album were sold out completely as soon as they were released, and the 20,000 additional copies that were released later also sold out in about a week. We′re currently printing yet another round of copies. This is a new record considering how he′s never appeared on televised broadcasts, and proves the high quality of the album as well as Kim Jae Joong′s popularity.”
Another official from C-JeS Entertainment commented, “As Kim Jae Joong′s first solo mini album has been so loved inside and outside Korea, we expect his repackage album Y to be a good present for those who are thirsty for more of Kim Jae Joong′s new image. The new version will contain the original five tracks and two more new ones, including the unreleased dance song Only Love performed at his Kintex concert. It will also hold a set of new, special photos.”
Only Love is a self-written track by Kim Jae Joong, and is a trendy dance single in the dubstep genre. The singer first performed it at his exclusive concert You, My and Mine held from January 26-27.
The repackage of his album will be released on February 26, and pre-sales will start from February 13. The singer will launch an Asia tour with the release of his new album.
