Korean actor Kim BumBeom [King Kong Entertainment]
Korean actor Kim Bum has topped Korea's J-pop music chart with his Japanese debut album, according to his agency King Kong Entertainment on Tuesday.
"Christmas Eve's Sky", the title track from his single album released in Japan last month, was ranked at No. 1 on various Internet music sites including Melon and Bugs Music.
"The song had ranked high on charts since its release, but we didn't know it would reach No. 1", an official at the agency was quoted as saying. "Everyone [at the agency] was surprised. We would like to thank the fans in Korea for their huge support".
The actor-turned-singer held a five-city tour in Japan over the Christmas season, performing dinner shows and meeting with some 3,000 fans to promote his debut album.
The 20-year-old actor, who first gained popularity through MBC sitcom "High Kick!" in 2006, shot to stardom early this year through KBS TV series "Boys over Flowers", which is based on a popular Japanese comic series.
He recently starred in the Korean film "Flight", where he played an aspiring actor working as a host at an upscale bar.
