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.
