Korean singer and actor Kim Jeong-hoons' ninth Japanese single has placed within the top 10 slots of the prestigious Oricon daily music chart.

According to his agency Mersenne Entertainment on Friday, Kim's latest single titled "Ardente", which entered the charts at No. 13 spot when it went on sale on August 18, came in at ninth place on Oricon's daily music chart yesterday.

"It is amazing to see his single rise up the chart even while he is in the military", an official from Mersenne told 10Asia over the phone.

Kim, 30, made his debut in 2000 as one of the vocalists in the duo UN. The group disbanded in 2005 and he branched out into acting, starring in several movies and TV series, most notably in MBC's hit TV series "Princess Hours".

He then resumed his music career in Japan, releasing his seventh single "Blue Moon" which debuted at No. 7 on Oricon's singles daily chart in July.

Kim entered the army in April 2009 to fulfill his two-year mandatory military duties, where he is serving as a DJ on military radio show "Kim Jeong-hoon's Voice Mail" at Korea's Defense Media Agency. He will be discharged in February 2011.

He will be making an appearance at the Dream Concert, hosted by the Defense Media Agency, on August 28 in Seoul Plaza.
