Japan's Recochuku's mobile music chart
Korean boy band 2PM has dominated a mobile music chart in Japan, securing all top five slots on the chart with their songs.
JYP Entertainment announced in a press release Friday that 2PM's hit songs "Without U", Heartbeat, "Again & Again", "My Life 4 U" and "10 Out of 10", which were released as ringtones on Wednesday, have placed on the top five spots on Japan's Recochuku's mobile music chart.
"The members of 2PM and the people at JYP Entertainment are surprised that fans in Japan have shown great interest in the group even before holding their official showcase in the country", an official from JYPE was quoted as saying.
Composed of members Nichkhun, Wooyoung, Lee Junho, Hwang Chan-sung, Junsu and Ok Taecyeon, 2PM has released a number of hit songs since their debut in 2008 including "Tired of Waiting", "Without U" and "Tik Tok".
The six-member boy band have been enjoying a successful return to the local music scene, promoting their latest title track "I'll Be Back" from their latest mini-album "Still 2:00PM".
They are now preparing for their official debut into the Japanese music market with their DVD "Hottest" which will go on sale on November 24 and their showcase "2PM 1ST CONTACT IN JAPAN" on December 8 at The Kokugikan, a venue famous for holding sumo and martial arts tournaments.
