  1. I do some research and find out that CNBLUE and Kim Hyun Joong have not released anything in Japanese yet in 2013 but their sales are surprisingly high. I'm so confused :-?

  2. Yes they have both release music during Oricon's 2013 year which started the 2nd week of December 2012
    It doesn't follow the Gregorian Calender year.

    CN Blue had released 2 DVDs, their korean album and their single Robot on Oricon's 2013 year.

    Kim Hyun Joong released his album unlimited
