TVXQ breaks a 31 year old record and appears on Peruvian TV?

The boys of TVXQ / DBSK / Tohoshinki are no strangers when it comes to breaking records for foreigners in Japan. In February they broke records held by Elton John and Bon Jovi, now here’s another to add to their growing list.

Last week, the boys released their 30th Japanese single Toki wo Tomete which quickly became #1 on the Oricon Weekly Singles Chart moving 195,000 units. In conjunction with this they released their special remix album TVXQ NONSTOP – MIX VOL.2, which placed 3rd on the Oricon Album Chart moving 38,000 units. Because of this feat, this was for the first time in 15 years that a foreign artist held top 3 spots on both the Oricon Singles and Album chart for the same week. The last time this happened was 15 years ago (1995) when Mariah Carey’s Lover’s Christmas single was third and Merry Christmas album was first.

For a male foreigner, the last occurrence of this was more than 31 years ago (1978) when Billy Joel held the third place ranking for both his single and album The Stranger.

TVXQ’s single BREAK OUT!, released in January achieved first on the Oricon. In addition their BEST SELECTION 2010 album has been one of the top albums in Japan for 2010. They continue to do big things in Japan, and their influence is slowly spreading beyond the Pacific Rim.

Their music video for Mirotic also recently appeared on a Peruvian TV show titled TOP Latino, check it out below. Thanks to stefany for the tip.
