[101015] SM rocks Billboard chart

A blockbuster concert by a group of K-pop singers from SM Entertainment a month ago earned the 10th ranking in the Billboard Boxcore chart, published on Oct. 9, the Yonhap news agency reported Friday.

SM Town Live Tour, which was featured on Sept. 12, brought 15,015 fans to the Staples Center in Los Angeles, the United States, marking $1,101,582 of ticket sales.

The Boxcore chart took the following factors into consideration: overall popularity evaluated after overseas performances for the last three months, ticket sales and the size of audience recorded by performance promoters around the world.

SM Town toppled pop celebrities such as Shakira, Sting, Justin Bieber and Guns N’ Roses, who ranked 16th, 20th, 24th and 27th, respectively. It is surprising that artists officially ranked from 1-9 in the music chart have performed more than twice, while the SM Entertainment performed just once, an official from SM Entertainment stressed.

“It is very rare for K-pop singers to enter top 10. Through the landmark performance in Los Angeles, we saw would-be potentials for both SM and its artists,” an official from SM Entertainment said. At the stadium, a group of SM musicians such as Boa, Kangta, TVXQ, Super Junior, ShiNee appeared on the 9/12 music showcase, each showcasing their hit numbers. The SM Town Live Concert is slated for January in Tokyo, South Korea’s largest entertainment agency added.
