The achievement comes although they did not appear in any Japanese TV music programs or talk shows to promote their album.

Their label mate Super Junior, the 13-member idol group, also topped the Oricon Daily Singles chart with their album “MAMACITA-AYAYA,” released the same day.

TVXQ and Super Junior will hold a live concert in Beijing, China, on Friday and Fukuoka, Japan, on Saturday, respectively.
