TVXQ is #2 ORICON Monthly Charts for May 2009


Popular group TVXQ / DBSK / Tohoshinki placed second on the Oricon Monthly Sales chart for their One Piece OP single, “Share the World / We are!” The sales were tabulated from April 20th – May 17th and TVXQ had a sales of 129,000 during that time period.

TVXQ’s 28th Japanese single titled Stand By You is scheduled to be released on July 1st. They will have very stiff competition with this release, Popular JPOP group Arashi will be releasing “Everything” on the same date. Other popular artists such as Flumpool, Gackt, and Mao Denda are also scheduled to release new singles around that time frame.

If i’m not mistaken, when Toho released Survivor it was at the same time as KAT-TUN’s Rescue being released. Well, we’ll see about this time’s competition. It will undoubtedly  be fierce! 😀

ORICON: Fresh Actors to Keep An Eye On

SATO TAKERUmizushima hiroharuma miura

Several weeks ago, Oricon polled a group of 300 high school girls about up-and-coming young actors. The women were asked to identify which “fresh” actors they have been paying close attention to.

#1 was Takeru Sato, who first got his break as the star of “Kamen Rider Den-O.” He has recently picked up a few major television roles in dramas such as “Bloody Monday” and “Mei-chan no Shitsuji.”

Ranked 2nd was the highly popular Hiro Mizushima, who also appeared in “Mei-chan no Shitsuji.”  Haruma Miura, the star of “Bloody Monday,” was #3.

  1. Takeru Sato
  2. Hiro Mizushima
  3. Haruma Miura
  4. Junpei Mizobata
  5. Masaki Okada
  6. Shohei Miura
  7. Eita
  8. Hiroshi Tamaki
  9. Toma Ikuta
  10. Ryosuke Yamada


Idk but I guess thos 300 HS girls didn’t get the idea “Fresh” -____-
Some of these guys are already senpais and had a lot of experience already

I guess they thought artists they have discovered just recently (“fresh” to them) not actors new “fresh” to the industry
