Mr. Taxi, Taxi, Taxi, I am landing at first place on the Oricon~!
Ok, so that’s not really how the song goes but, Shoujo shidai who released their Japanese debut album snagged first place on the weekly album charts. Congrats to them.
Single Weekly Rankings: Jang Geun Suk’s single is still in the top 20, 2pm and SNSD are still in the top 30, and Kara is still in the top 35.
Album Weekly Rankings I Missed: Big Bang where I expected a lower top 10 or upper top 20 spot came in at number 7. That’s lower top 10~ FT Island also had their album take the number one spot on the weekly rankings!
Kpop in Japan Round Ups have gotten a bit boring on my end. Do you like them? If so say so.
Do you like the round ups?
Daesung from Big Bang was involved in a car accident around 1AM about 40 minutes outside of Seoul.
A motorcyclist who had been hit in a hit and run accident was being assisted by the driver of a stopped taxi. Daesung was unable to stop in time to avoid hitting the stopped taxi and the unfortunate turn events lead to the motorcyclist, already injured from the previous hit and run, dying. After the accident Daesung was tested for alcohol levels in his blood and it was confirmed that he was not drinking and driving. Daesung was taken to the Yeongdeung police station after the accident.
There are no mentions of him being injured, so fangirls don’t fret about that. Please, keep the family of the deceased in your thoughts and prayers, they’re going to need them. How heartbreaking for them.
