SS501 Heo Youngsaeng has ascended on Hanteo Chart’s Weekly No.1 throne.
On May 12, Heo Youngsaeng who’s released his first solo mini album ‘Let it go’ had achieved No.1 for Realtime results on the Hanteo Charts with his album sales, and also No.1 on the Daily Charts. In addition to this, the total album sales across 4 days (until May 16) has also been calculated as a total of 17,000 pieces, which is thus No.1 on the Hanteo Weekly Charts. This is a very luxurious opening to his solo debut.
Heo Youngsaeng broke out of the impressions of everyone by singing a dance track ‘Let it go’ instead of ballads, and has successfully showed a different side of his from SS501 days. He has since been receiving good comments like ‘Rediscovery of Heo Youngsaeng’ from the masses.
For an idol group singer like Heo Youngsaeng, he’s also been showing signs of unusual success digitally-wise. Though usually an idol group-borne singer who turns solo after that could not achieve as good results digitally-wise when compared to album sales, for Heo Youngsaeng’s case, he’s managed to maintain his ranking in the Top 10 charts of music sites like MELON, Bugs, Dosirak, Soribada etc, and has also been receiving good responses with his stages through music programmes.
