JYJ member Junsu, known as XIA while promoting solo music, has set a new record on the Goan chart for selling the most records out of any solo artist.
Recently, XIA's first solo album "TARANTALLEGRA" sold over 120,000 units. This was enough to beat all other solo artist albums in terms of units sold.
XIA has also proven his popularity outside of Korea. The album topped various charts in Japan upon its release, including Japan's iTunes, Tower Records Japan's chart, Japan's Rakuten and Amazon Japan. In addition, the title track's music video ranked first on the Chinese website Yin Yue Tai for the month of May.
"We know that China people have difficulty accessing Youtube and Twitter, and that any album that rises on their music video site reflects the public interest and standards of China. There is a great significance attached to XIA's accomplishment, especially considering the fact that 'TARANTALLEGRA' ranked above the music videos of Super Junior and Taetiseo, who both have had broadcast performances and promotions," a representative for C-JeS Entertainment stated.
