On the 21st, TVXQ was awarded the "Best Representative for Asia" award.
Xiah Junsu stated:
"It's been a long time. It's an honor just to be able to attend such a huge event, but being able to receive an award, thank you so much. This award is not for one single member, but because all 5 members have put forth so much effort we are able to receive it. Thank you so much to all of our fans in Asia for allowing us to receive such a huge award."
Micky Yoochun stated:
"I think this is the first time I've wanted to sing so badly. After becoming a singer, I was able to meet such great members, that's why I think we are able to be here. We will work even harder to expand beyond Asia. We hope for even more support than now."
Youngwoong Jaejoong stated:
"I can't be happier because this award is coming directly from the fans of Asia. To our fans who are watching and possibly our two friends who are watching, I wanted to say that I love you."
Although Changmin and Yunho were unable to attend due to SM Entertainment's boycott of the MAMA's, all three members, especially Jaejoong made it clear that TVXQ is still as close as ever.
