[INFO] 100408 HMV Public CD Sales Survey

NetEase Entertainment reported on the 7th of April 2010 that the results of the survey by HMV Japan about the fans’ purchasing desires have been released. Tohoshinki dominated the list; Ayumi Hamasaki, leader of pop, was crowned number one among the female artists.

This time around, HMV Japan chose 4000 user accounts from their official website to take the survey; 50% belongs in the age group of 10-19. According to the evaluator, this age group has a very strong purchasing power.

Tohoshinki triumphs over the popular groups Arashi and KAT-TUN of Johnny & Associates, based on the statistical results by the customer management system of the fans’ buying trends. Ayumi Hamasaki is ranked number 8 in the list of top female artists.

It is understood that Arashi’s latest album has achieved an outstanding number for the weekly sales, but on the other hand, Tohoshinki’s singles sales are long-lasting. As for the leader of pop Ayumi Hamasaki, she’s still standing strong with excellent sales, far more than any other female artist.

This survey closed at the end of last month. According to an insider of the music industry, the buying passion of Tohoshinki’s fans might continue to rise due to the start of the members’ solo activities.

HMV Public CD Sales Survey Result:

#1 TOHOSHINKI (????)
#2 Morning Musume
#4 Arashi
#5 ° C-ute
#6 Perfume
#7 Berryz Kobo
#8 Ayumi Hamasaki
#9 YUI

“Xiah,The Long- Awaited Solo Debut”
May 26 (Wed), Junsu’s Solo Single Album will be Released

Junsu, who has the best or second best vocal in Tohoshinki,
will release on May 26 two versions of the solo single album (with/without DVD).

The title and details are not announced yet, but as Tohoshinki, he has charmed us with his performances with many songs, so our expectations are rising to its limit.

Junsu’s vocal was highly appraised from his childhood days, and he was called “a child prodigy”.
This single is full of his vocals, and is a double titled single album.
On of the songs is a song with an adult’s atmosphere, and the other is a ballad song which you can find Junsu’s true value.
For the DVD plus version, there will be a video clip of the songs, and in the first release, there will be an approximately 10 minutes’ offshoot movie.
For both the first released limited DVD + CD and CD versions, there will be a jacket card enclosed with the product.
The first release should be immediately sold out, so for those who want the album, we would recommend that you to make the reservations.

Wonderful vocal, wonderful dancing skills, and full of humor off stage.
For those who are not yet aware of Junsu’s charms, who is very popular with those characters,
you should fall for Junsu with this opportunity!

For those who will hear Junsu’s song for the first time, our recommendation is “Asuwa Kurukara”.
It is a comfortable and cozy ballad.
The highlight is the solo part after the second chorus.
Junsu’s dynamic and also soulful vocals will echo in your ears.
You cannot talk about Junsu without hearing this song.

Oh, the person is charge is talking passionately about Junsu~ UreXiah (T/N: so happy)
“Asuwa Kurukara” is a great song~

[TRANS] 100209 HMV TVXQ Awareness Survey

February 9th 3:50 pm WoW!Korea

TVXQ Awareness Survey give to around 3800 HMV users.
TVXQ’ charm divided between “Teamwork (36.9%)” and “Vocal talent (34.1%)”!
48% of fans spend 2~3 hours on TVXQ-related activities every day!
The most times one fan visited Korea was 40!

TVXQ will be releasing their first best album “BEST SELECTION 2010″ on February 17th. To commemorate the release, HMV Japan Corporation used HMV ONLINE (http://www.hmv.co.jp) abd HMV MOBILE (http://m.hmv.co.jp) to ask approximately 3800 HMV users on their awareness of TVXQ with a “TVXQ Awareness Survey (http://www.hmv.co.jp/pr/tohofan/).

Super group TVXQ debuted in Japan in 2005 and became top artistes there. 98% of the survey takers were women, so the results were heavily biased towards females. However, the age of the survey takers ranged from those in their teens to those in their fifties, proving that TVXQ had a fandom that crossed over generations. It was voted that TVXQ’s biggest charms that sucked in fans was “Teamwork” (36.9%) and “Vocal talent” (34.1%). “Good looks” only made up 1.3% of all the answers.

The main method in which people found out about TVXQ was “TV” (60.0%); other answers included “Through their CM songs”, “Through their drama opening songs” and “Because Sekine Tsutomu recommended them”. Regarding time spent on TVXQ-related activities, the majority said they spent 2~3 hours every day on such activities (48.4%). However, 5.1% stated that they spent at least 10 hours on TVXQ related activities every day. A large portion of the survey takers replied that they found out about TVXQ “Online” (38.4%); other answers included “TV”, “Magazines” or “From a friend or someone I know” which showed that ‘word of mouth’ was quite effective for TVXQ.

Also, the majority of the fans were deeply interested in Korea with one fan visiting Korea 40 times. 76.3% of survey takers were interested in K-POP other than TVXQ. According to data from HMV Japan, many people who buy TVXQ related goods also buy goods by (in order of quantity) Shinhwa, Big Bang and Arashi. This was backed up in the survey when many said that they also liked Big Bang (15.5%), Super Junior, SS501, SHINee and other K-POP idol groups as well as Japanese artistes such as EXILE and Arashi.

For the question “What is something you cannot live without, almost as much as TVXQ?” in the free response section, many showed interest in music (24.0%) with answers like “iPod”, “K-POP”, “Live” while others showed their interest in Korean culture other than K-POP with replies such as “Korean” and “Korean food”. It may be because of the fact that the information exchange between family and friends has improved, but some fans were seen writing “Family” and “Friends” as well.
