Korean singer and actor Kim Hyun-joong has become the first K-pop artist to sell over 200,000 copies of his Japanese single album this year.

According the data by the official Oricon website, Kim moved 200,580 copies of his second Japanese single titled, "HEAT," since it went on sale in the country on July 4.

Kim’s jaw-dropping record has proven his popularity in Japan, recording high sales compared to iconic K-pop artists Super Junior's "Opera," which sold about 184,000 copies since going on sale on May 9, and singing duo TVXQ!'s single "Android," which moved about 175,000 editions since its release on July 11.

Meanwhile, an official with the "HEAT" singer's Japanese agency said in a press release Tuesday that Kim has solidified himself as one of the leading artists in the current music scene even with the fierce competition.

Making his debut as a member of K-pop group SS501 in 2005, Kim expanded his career into acting after starring as one of the main characters in KBS' teenage series "Boys Over Flowers" in 2009.

Kim will soon mark his return to the small screen as the male lead in the upcoming drama "City Conquest," which will hit airwaves later this year.
