DBSK - who are they?

DBSK or TVXQ is a pop group from South Korea, TVXQ (initials mean Tong Vfiang Xien Qi, also know as Tohoshinki at Japan and Dong Bang Shin Ki at Korea). Their group name means ''Rising Gods from the East''

The group is conformed by 5 members: U-know Yunho, Xiah Junsu, Hero Jaejoong, Max Changmin and Micky Yoochun.

The group was formed under SM Entertaiment in 2003, later on they debuted in Japan under Avex Trax in 2005.

Since their debut, TVXQ has been one of the most popular groups not only on their country but also on Asia, now their music is on different parts of the world.

TVXQ was supposed to be an ''A capella'' group but their music goes from K-pop and J-pop to even rock and ballads. Their first single was called ''Hug'' and it became popular pretty fast.

''Their follow up single "The Way U Are" was a dance/R&B number, complete with stylized outfits and choreographed dance moves. Their third major single release, "믿어요" (I Believe), in contrast, was a ballad. TVXQ concluded the year with a Christmas album that also had an a cappella version of "Jesus, Joy Of Man's Desiring". With their releases in 2004, the group showed a versatility in style and has managed not to be permanently typecast as a certain "genre style" (as opposed to Fly to the Sky's R&Bs or Koyote's dance songs).

With consecutive releases, they have not moved from this formula, as their second and third albums have had a similar mixture without moving outside of the mainstream label. The second album's singles, for example, included a dance song (their first release) and a ballad (their follow up). The third album's releases have been dance, ballad and pop tracks. The group also recorded a cappella tracks for official albums released in both Korea and Japan, in which they rearrange original songs as a cappella versions. In the 13th single released in Japan, TVXQ arranged their debut single 'Hug' as a cappella track and performed it in their 2nd Live Tour in Japan.

In Japan, the group's image and music has shifted towards a different market from the one in South Korea. Owing to their more mature fan base in Japan, TVXQ has gravitated towards a cappella and melodic pop songs rather than the heavy and fast pop tunes, coupled with intensive dance choreography, that are commonly seen in their usual hits in South Korea.''
