Kang Daniel Joins Forces With Warner Music To Advance To Japan
K-Pop soloist Kang Daniel has confirmed his entry into Japan.
Kang Daniel joins hands with Warner Music Japan and starts his Japanese activities in earnest. As his first Japanese event, the "Upside Down" singer opened his fan club "DANITY JAPAN" on the 1st.
The opening of his fan club at the same time as his announcement of entry into Japan shows the local popularity of Kang Daniel in the country. Just having his name on the lineup for the upcoming music festival "Summer Sonic 2022" in Tokyo shows the hot public perception of the singer. The news of Kang Daniel's appearance was welcomed by the major media in Japan.
Local officials are paying attention to Kang Daniel's activities in various fields such as acting, and MCing aside from his music. Kang Daniel showed stable progress as an MC in Mnet's "Street Woman Fighter" and "Street Dance Girls Fighter." The former Wanna One member has also expanded into acting by taking the lead role in Disney+'s "Rookies" which is a romantic drama set at an elite police academy.
The success of his first full-length solo album "The Story" also served as a foundation for his Japanese activities. Kang Daniel's "The Story" sold 316,630 copies in the first week of release, confirming its unrivaled presence.
Kang Daniel also dominated the music charts with his recent release. Along with the top spot on the real-time charts in Korea, Kang Daniel's "The Story" also climbed to the top of the iTunes album charts in more than 20 countries, including Japan.
Starting with Japan, Kang Daniel plans to expand his career map to the world with his music and performances.
