Korean group Tohoshinki (TVXQ/DBSK) continues to make music history by landing their 5th #1 song on the Japanese Oricon Weekly Charts.
The beautiful ballad Bolero, the title soundtrack to the upcoming movie Subaru, also contains two other songs written by TVXQ members “Micky” Yoochun and “Youngwoong” Jaejoong.
The upbeat, feel-good song Kiss the Baby Sky was penned by Yoochun and the deep, heart-wrenching ballad Wasurenaide (Don’t Forget) was written by Jaejoong.
A few days ago, news broke that Bolero was #1 on the Oricon Daily chart. After seeing the sales figures for that day, many had already concluded that the single would be #1 for the week.
Tohoshinki are the first Korean artists to have 5 #1 songs on the Japanese weekly charts. They are the first non-Japanese artists to obtain that feat as well.
(Note: Oricon is like the Billboard charts in America in terms of importance to the Japanese music industry)
