Dear Henecia members and fans of Kim Hyun Joong who supported our 606 project.
Here's a huge bow and thank you from all of us at OnlyKHJtimes.
We are very happy to report that our purchase target of 606 copies of 'Tonight' was successfully achieved with your generous and undying support for Hyun Joong-ssi.
We must also say that every dollar and cent that was received in this project was especially invaluable to us because it was also an indication of the level of trust that was accorded to us from fellow fans from all around the world. It is truly humbling. Thank you once again.
Yes, our little project only involved 606 copies and yes, it is a small amount compared to the total 116,000 copies sold. But as in every endeavour in life, every little bit of effort helps. So to all who have contributed, congratulations on having helped shoot Hyun Joong to #2 on the Oricon weekly chart on the first week of the release of ‘Tonight’, right after the hugely popular home-group, SMAP. Truly, that is no easy feat.
Now, as is our practice, we would like to also give a brief update on the bulk purchase that was carried out. The purchase of 606 copies was spread out over a period of 14 days, with the help of an OKT coordinator in Japan. There were a total of 45 donors/contributors. In no particular order, we have listed their names below:
Special thanks to Japan Fans who helped us in purchasing & carrying the cds to Korea :-
