Congratulations to HyunJoong for winning No. 1 in Oricon Weekly chart, a great accomplishment considering that his contenders were Yamapi & Morning Musume! He was working so hard to promote his album last week with non-stop appearance in TV, guerrilla concert performances in Odaiba & Nagoya, handshake fanmeetings in Odaiba & Osaka. 
Once again, fans has worked hard in supporting him, the sales would not be so high without his die hard fans buying loads of albums to support him, it was also great to see that he has lots of follower with him in all his events, be it the long and unending queues in Odaiba & Osaka, or the crowd which surround him in his guerrilla concerts. He must be happy to see the support which his fans had given him! Keep it up, Henecians & TripleS!
