The returned man, Jaebeom, has raised a record amount of sales in two weeks.
Jaebeom has raised over $700 thousand in two weeks with his mini-album, Count on Me, released on the 13th.
Warner Music Korea, who is in charge of the distribution of this album revealed “The 50 thousand offline albums are depleting rapidly. Also, we are assuming the profit for online singles to be over $200 thousand. We would need to do an accurate count of sales but the speed of sales is so fast that its hard to know where it all comes from. ”
Jaebeom’s song was listed in the solo album he released for the first time after leaving 2PM. “Count on Me” is a very meaningful song for Jaebeom. This song is a Korean version of B.o.B.’s “Nothin’ On You”, which Jaebeom revealed through YouTube in February. The cover, which contained his gratefulness towards the fans, made a huge impact online as it recorded 1 million hits the day of its release. DMW (Digital Media Wire), who watched this hype, approved his ability as a star and provided him the base of his comeback.
The reactions were even hotter as this song was released officially in an album five months later. Count On Me swept all sorts of online charts in first place. It seems that the heat will continue. As Jaebeom is planning to perform “Count On Me” on the stage of Summer Week & T taking place August 6th and 7th, it can be predicted that the interest of fans will spike even higher.
Jaebeom is currently filming for Hype Nation, a movie dealing with the subject of b-boys. It is known that Jaebeom has recently signed with SidusHQ and that it is highly possible for him to star in the SBS drama, Secret Garden. On August 28th, he will be meeting his fans through the “Jaebeom Fanmeets Tour 2010, Seoul” which takes place at the Hwajung Gymnasium.
