Default Issue adding link with kanji

I was trying to add a link for this album pointing at the iTunes store, however it doesn't seem to work. I suspect this is because the iTunes store url has kanji in it.
When I press submit it tries to take me to an incorrect address so you go back and it hasn't stuck.
I can't paste the original URL in notepad or this post, it converts it into numbers but if you paste the result back into chrome it manages to translate it back.
The link is
Is this a known issue and is there a way around this?
BTW I used the same URL for the translation credit and that didn't have any problems.

The problem is general i think since a very long time, the database have a problem verifying httpS links (at least on Firefox, it have been doing this to me for years).
It will give you an error, but just ignore it, the link is working fine when you open it from the album entry.

Correct - the db doesn't like it when you use https links on most forms. I believe it happens on all browsers.

Seems like it would be an easy thing to fix, but maybe I'm wrong.

Ok, I thought it didn't link at all yesterday but maybe I just needed to be more patient with it as I can see it today.
Next time I'll try typing it in without https or maybe substituting http for https and see if that works better.
