Korean singer and actor Kim Jun's Japanese drama has remained the most-watched mobile show in Japan for two weeks straight, according to his agency Planet 905 on Monday.

Planet 905 announced in a press release that "The Love of Pygmalion," shown on mobile-exclusive broadcaster Bee TV, has remained the No. 1 drama amongst all shows shown on some 40 other channels in the country.

Starring Kim as the male lead, "Pygmalion," about a woman named Mika (played by Japanese actress Minamisawa Nao) who has lost her memories about her lover Hyung-joon (played by Kim), has been gaining increasing popularity since first going on air on March 20.

A representative from show's Japanese producer spoke highly of the drama saying, "It is popular amongst viewers in their 20s and 30s. ‘Pygmalion’ has targeted the middle-aged female group, which is a rare occurrence."

Kim, 26, made his debut in the entertainment industry in 2007 as a rapper of K-pop group T-MAX. He rose to stardom playing one of the famous F4 characters in "Boys" last year.

He is currently promoting T-MAX's first studio release titled "Born to the Max."
