[TVXQ] U-KNOW YUNHO’S ‘NO LIMIT’ DVD TOPS ORICON CHARTS
The newly-released DVDs for MBC TV series “No Limit,” starring TVXQ leader U-Know Yunho, is selling off the shelves in Japan, according to the country’s Oricon charts.
According to Oricon’s weekly DVD charts for television drama category, the two DVD box sets for “Limit” were the two best-selling DVDs in the country, ranking at No.1 and No.2 for the week of June 21.
This week, “No Limit” DVD Box I and Box II, released in Japan on June 16, each fell a notch to No. 2 and No. 3, respectively.
It is the first time in over three years that a Korean television drama has topped Oricon’s DVD chart — Hallyu star Bae Yong-joon last conquered the charts in 2007 with TV series “Taewangsashingi.”
“Limit,” which aired in Korea last fall, starred U-Know Yunho as a soccer player named Cha Bong-goon and Korean actress A Ra as his sports agent.
The two lead actors, U-Know Yunho and A Ra, attended a fan event in Japan to celebrate the DVD launch of “Limit” over the weekend.
