Korean artists TVXQ and Kim Hyun Joong both won the Golden Disc Award in Japan.

A Japanese record association stated that TVXQ's single, ANDROID, which was released on July 11, and their Japan Live Tour 'Tone' DVD had both been seen on the 'gold' list.

In order to be on the 'gold' list, an artist's album had to have sold over 10,000 copies. TVXQ along with Kim Hyun Joong and his new single, HEAT, were both seen on the chart.

TVXQ also holds another record in that this new single, ANDROID, is the 11th time their album has ranked on the Oricon Weekly Single Chart.

TVXQ has ranked number 1 with 11 of their songs and this will be the first time in 45 years that an artist has broken the record for a foreign artists ranking number 1 on the weekly chart over 10 times. 

TVXQ has recently just finished their large-scale Japan concert and fan meeting. Kim Hyun Joong will continue his Asia activities.
