[100220] A message from a member of a resort that TVXQ went to.

I had never imagined that TVXQ's interview at 예다울 (Yedawol) would attract so much attention!
Thanks to TVXQ's fans for so many comments. (I hope everyone will divert all those warm-hearted attention into the concern of our 예다울!)

Hence, in order to satisfy fan's curiosity, we will post up pictures that only the owner of 예다울 (Yedawol) has! (*Weep* I had no other ideas what to do! ㅠ.ㅠ)

(T/N : He is describing the situation when the picture was taken)

Honk Honk! A handsome young man driving a charming car -- Micky Yoochun!
The in-love-with-cars owner of 예다울 (Yedawol) heart beats twice as fast as he saw Micky.
Later, he took a picture with his camera, but at a distance as far as possible! (What a coward! Haha!)


Anyways, on that day when TVXQ arrived, it was raining heavily and it was dangerous to drive on the road.
Fortunately, no accidents happened and the vehicle was not damaged.
The manager was worried and asked whether the boys were tired, yet they kept smiling and everyone felt glad.

However, Jae Joong was abit shy as he didn't spoke alot. I understand that it's our first time meeting and
there were no topics that we could discuss about, but I see he was trying his best by giving his smile.


The boys said that they didn't know that 예다울 (Yedawol) had an entertainment room,
hence, they suggested that they should play for a while since they were already here.
Even though it's time to leave the place, the boys continued to play "Battle of the Iron Fists"
and Jae Joong was so serious at it!

I originally planned to buy a CD and request for their autographs, who knows, there was a snow storm!
In such a situation, I had no choice but to replace the CD with a white A4 paper.
(Micky said if there's the need, he is willing to sign for more.)

Later, we went for a BBQ and I asked Micky if he needed any thing, to my surprise, he answered "I need love." (T/N : LOL)
It was getting late and the boys were heading back. Despite the cold temperature, they didn't close the window (of the car)
and greeted us with new year blessings.
At that moment, I thought to myself, "They are really people who are polite and respectful!"


After the visit of TVXQ, colleagues discussed for a long time and we thought that celebrities were cold and scary.
To our surprise, they were even nicer than normal people, to the extend that I can't describe using praises!
I hope that they will stay strong, rise as Asia's handsome TVXQ and be recognized by the world!
Our staff will always support you!

Fans of TVXQ, please support TVXQ more!

[NEWS] 100220 Musical Mozart Starring Xiah! The Audiences Exceeded 10,000 People for the Performance in Daegu

Musical Mozart starring Xiah Junsu in Daegu has resulted in a blast box office number.

A press release is made by MUK Company regarding ‘Musical Mozart!’, “‘Musical Mozart’ Daegu performance has reached the number audiences of 10,000 people in one week,”

In the middle of economic recession, for a provincial local tour to have 10,000 people already paid for reservation even before the show opens is extremely unusual.

- omitted -

Currently the districts which are selling ticket of Mozart are Daegu, Busan, and Changwon. However, since Kim Junsu will only appear at Daegu, therefore the Daegu performance is getting more popular.

Many musical fans state their Wish, “From the performances in Seoul, due to his voice power, Kim Junsu has been getting many praises, so in this 9th public performance of ‘Mozart!’ we hope to see even more perfect feature of him.”

[TRANS] 100220 “Tokiwo tomete” Composer’s Blog Ichiro Fujiya’s Blog

"Tokiwo Tomete"
2010-02-18 Thursday

Today (passed midnight, so already yesterday), Tohoshinki’s "BEST SELECTION 2010" was released, and in the album, two of my works are included. The two songs are, "Forever Love" and "時ヲ止メテ" (T/N: Tokiwo Tomete)!
The song "Tokiwo Tomete" was already decided last spring to be recorded, but there seemed to be some problems (with their management company), so the release was once doubtful. I heard rumors that the song will not be CD released, and I was really worried. But I am so delighted that the song is now released to the public in the form of the CD!
I am confident that I was the person who was waiting the most for the song to be CD released, even more than all the fans! (Lol)
I composed the song "Tokiwo Tomete" imagining the 5 members singing the song.
This is the first time that I heard the recorded full version of the song, and the completed works are far beyond my imagination, so lovely!
Well, this song is only included in the 2CD+DVD, the most expensive version, so I thank you for your consideration. (Lol)
And the single CD will be released next month. Will they film the PV?

February 19, 2010, 2:25pm

K-pop groups aiming to capture the Japanese music market should take their cue from boy band TVXQ
(aka Tohoshinki in Japan).

Proving once again their awesome ability to surpass their own records, TVXQ topped the Japanese Oricon chart
recently with their “Best Collection 2010” CD album.

The collection sold a whopping 228,542 copies on the first day of its release last February 17,
according to Oricon data.

TVXQ beat Japanese pop group AAA’s “Heart and Soul” album, which sold a measly 16,822 copies;
and hip hop band Funky Monkey Babys’ greatest hits album “Best,” which garnered only 10,868 copies in sales.

With the feat, TVXQ's “Best Collection 2010” is now the sixth best-selling album in Japan since 2007 based on
first-day sales, according to TVXQ’s Korean fan forums

“That number is staggering for the first day of sales. Congrats to the boys. I bet that they are over the moon,”
wrote an Australian fan with the username Hoodwinker on the TVXQ international fan forum

“This is the power of TVXQ,” posted a Filipino fan on the Cassiopeia Philippines forum.

The new record comes just a week after TVXQ’s 29th single, “Break Out,” was certified platinum in Japan,
selling 255,917 in just one week since its release on January 27.

In the Philippines, Tohoshinki’s “The Secret Code” is also making brisk sales.

“The Secret Code” is at No. 3 in the Music One album chart. The ranking is based on the sales tabulation from
three Music One stores from February 8 to 14.

“The Secret Code” edged out the international album releases of Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, the "Glee" Soundtrack
and Alicia Keys.

The album is also at No. 4 based on Astrovision and Astroplus music stores’ top selling foreign albums chart for the period February 8 to 14.

“The Secret Code” is Tohoshinki’s fourth Japanese studio album.

[TRANS] 100217 Oricon Style - Tohoshinki Special Issue, Special Oricon Chart


1st: Why Did I Fall In Love With You?
2nd: Share the World
3rd: Stand by U
4th: Purple Line
5th: Mirotic

In the “2009 Artistes' Album Sales Ranking Chart,” TVXQ, who has gained immense popularity over the past year, took the top three spots in the chart. Recently, they became the first boyband to grace the cover of popular women’s magazine "JJ," attracting much attention again, with their popularity soaring even higher. ORICON STYLE looked into the popularity of TVXQ’s "BEST SELECTION 2010" top five choices, and came up with the following information.

1st Place – Extremely Sad Ballad “Why Did I Fall In Love With You?”
“This was the first TVXQ song I listened to, and I was moved by the amazing harmonization. I can still remember how touched I was to this day. The harmonization of the five members was just too beautiful, I really liked it. This song is my motivation to like them.” A lot of people recognized TVXQ through this song. Harmonization is their forte, and many agree with this. Other than that, a 20-year-old male admitted that “When I first heard it, I was so touched, I was about to cry.” “It really is very easy to understand what the lyrics are trying to convey.” This song, which can almost make men cry, has garnered high popularity with the fans, both male and female.

2nd Place – “Share the World”
“I learnt about this song through the anime "One Piece," and I’ve really liked it since I first listened to it!” “I first listened to this song in "One Piece" and I had many feelings about it.” Being the theme song of popular anime "One Piece," this song is familiar with many. “This song melded with the anime itself.” The perspective of the world in the anime and the song are the same and soon, this song soon became firmly embedded in the heart of "One Piece" fans.

3rd Place – “Stand by U”
“The sad lyrics of the song and TVXQ’s voices match perfectly; the chorus just gets stuck in your head.” “I can actually feel the excellent singing skills of the five members.” The perspective of the world that the song portrays and their voices garnered a lot of attention and won everyone’s hearts.

4th and 5th Place – “Purple Line” and “Mirotic”
“Because of their superb dance skills, the song is quite a hit.” “Dance fuses TVXQ’s visual charisma into the best song.” Both songs got good comments about their superb dance skills.

As for 1st place “Why Did I Fall In Love With You?” and 3rd Place “Stand By U,” they were awarded the big prize in the lyrics department, as well as good reviews in a Japanese albums' awards ceremony. Of course, it is because of TVXQ’s skill in harmonization, dance performances and personal charisma that we can call TVXQ's "BEST SELECTION 2010" a beautiful selection. Whether it is people who have just heard for the first time or old fans, this album is certainly a classic not to be missed.

[NEWS] 100219 Tohoshinki Enters Philippines' Music One Charts!

On February 11, 2010, Universal Records released Tohoshinki's "The Secret Code" to the Philippines. And in just a few days, Tohoshinki entered the Philippines' Music One Chart for their huge number of album sales.
hough the album had no photobook, this didn't stop our beloved Cassies from grabbing a copy.
Also, I'm pretty sure that the 2nd cd which was of course the non-stop mix of some of their tracks, made up for the lacking photobook
Plus, there's a free poster!
Now, which Cassie wouldn't want to have a poster of our boys, right?!

Anyway, congratulations THSK!

And to the Filipino Cassies, keep up the good work and keep supporting them!

[TRANS] 100218 Yahoo! Music Japan, "What Tohoshinki Has Been Feeling While Having Activities in Japan"

By music writer Itou Hironobu

Tohoshinki just released their first best album "BEST SELECTION 2010" in 2/17. On this occasion, I have recollected and compiled all the interviews and information I made about them up until now. Moreover, in the photo gallery, there is a collection of photos from their 2007-2008-2009 live tours, as well as photos from their various release events and jacket photos from the singles whose songs are included in this album.

What Tohoshinki Has Been Feeling While Having Activities in Japan
Five years after making their debut in Japan, Tohoshinki finally released their first best album "BEST SELECTION 2010". With their skillful dancing and excellent singing abilities where every each of the five members can be the lead vocal, the miracle named Tohoshinki has swept away the Japanese music scene. While listening to this album of Tohoshinki, I recalled my memories of them up until now.

I first met them in their dressing room during their live tour in 2007 at Nippon Budoukan. It was for the report of the live for their "SHINE" photobook. Half a month later, I had a chance to meet them again in Okinawa where they were having photoshoots for "SHINE". Since I was in charge of writing about the photoshoots, I had a chance to talk to them while we were eating together. Through their talks of Korea, of their life in Tokyo, etc.… their honest personality has left me a very deep impression.

Tohoshinki already had their big break in Korea when they first set their feet on the land of Japan. When they first arrived at the airport, "there was hardly any fan," said Yoochun. Although they were already a Korean top star to the point that there would be no empty seat at their concert, they debuted in Japan as a new artist. While still having culture and language barriers, they accepted the reality and started out singing acapella at small live houses and going to handshake events. Junsu recalled that they were very frustrated for not being able to convey their feelings due to their lack of language skill.

"For us, Japanese activities were our very first challenge, so we felt very anxious and insecure. However, when we looked at the faces of our fans while singing, we felt very happy and thought that we should work even harder." (Junsu)

Changmin also said, "When we first had our debut, we were so busy everyday that it became a luxurious dream for us to do what we wanted to. However, when we saw the smiles of our fans during our tour, we were able to gain more confidence to carry on to our next dream."

Three years after their debut in Japan, in 2008, their Japanese became fluent, and it seemed like they were also able to enjoy their private life. Yoochun also talked about it.

"I do go to Shibuya sometimes. Those are times when I want to eat hokke [mackerel] (LOL). Tonkotsu ramen is also very delicious, isn't it!"

"The moment I take a bath after coming home is my most relaxing time! However, I'm also the type of person who only take a quick dip in a bathtub and get out dancing when I bath by myself (LOL)" (Junsu)

Even though they are a top star, their every life is just as normal as everyone. I still remember their simple and down-to-Earth personality even now.

About the Songs of "Member's Choice" in DISC 2

The process of the five years that they earnestly spent growing up together is engraved in this "BEST SELECTION 2010". From their debut song "Stay With Me Tonight" to "Stand by U", all of the singles were compiled and put together in DISC 1. While listening to it, we are able to feel their talent and individuality as well as their flexibility and sense in different genres of music.

The included songs are probably there to remind their fans of the memories they made. When one listens to a song, that person might be able to recall the time and place that are related to that song. I think such kind of deja vu songs are not rare. For me, that deja vu song is "Summer Dream". It reminds me of the first time I wrote about their photobook in Okinawa.

At that time, I went to Okinawa to write about their music video of "Summer Dream". At that time, the temperature was over 30°C with a very extremely sun. However, no matter how much they were sweating, they kept dancing and dancing until the scene became perfect. When I listen to this song, I am able to recall the figures of them dancing at that time. Moreover, I heard from the staff that even though they had filming schedule from early in the morning until late at night and only had a few hours of sleep, when they had some free time, they would immediately dive into the hotel's pool. I remembered them also for their ability to distinguish between on and off, and their ability to concentrate when they have to work.

"BEST SELECTION 2010" comes with 3 versions - 2CD+DVD, CD+DVD, and CD. Amongst the three of them, CD+DVD version contains the songs of "Member's Choice" in DISC 2. That reminds me of the question, "What song would leave the most impression in their memories?"

"For me it's "Love in the Ice". When we first sang it at and event, I saw people who were shedding tears while listening, I felt like crying too. This is a very deep song that leaves a great impression in my memories." (Yunho)

"For me it's "Purple Line". The highlight is Yunho's rap. I thought to myself, "He's so cool. Doesn't he sound like an American?" (LOL)" (Jaejoong)

Jaejoong also talked about "Forever Love", "No matter how many times I sing it, I always get goosebumps, and that's how much I love the song." The song he chose this time is a little bit different from what he said that time. It's probably because that as time passes, he was able to make new memories with the song he chose this time.

I suddenly remembered something. It was during the photoshoots for the photobook at Araha Beach in Chatan, Okinawa. While the sun was slowing approaching the horizon, they were having a break. Without having to say a word to each other, they immediately took out the bats and balls, and started to fool around like teenagers on the white sand. No matter if it's working or playing, they always give it their best. Even now, I still remember vividly the figures of them who were soaking in the orange color of the setting sun.

Tohoshinki is a group of five people who have the best performances and personalities. As the time piles up, I believe that they will keep fascinating more people into their charisma and never stop shining.

[TRANS] 100215 Year of the Tiger: Jaejoong, Vietnam News "The Most Beautiful Face" ^^

Điểm mặt sao Hàn sinh năm Hổ
Thứ Hai, 15/02/2010 10:16
-Translated Jaejoong’s part-

Jaejoong, Hyunjoong, and BoA all have one thing in common: they were all born in the Year of the Tiger. They make fans' hearts skip a beat because of their talent and beauty!

Jaejoong was born with the blood type O... so this handsome singer has the typical characteristic of an O-blood-type
man. He always gives his opinions and ideas about every matter concerning the group with his deep thinking
and clear explanation.

"Hero" (stage name) is also very neat and clean. We can see it through the way he organizes his room.
Besides being hardworking on cleaning the house, Jaejoong also loves to cook and make the most delicious food
for the members of DBSK. They all love his cooking.

This caring and mindful man can cook 15 different dishes easily. That's why he is called the "mama/umma/mommy" of the group.

When Jaejoong was a child, he had a tough time earning a living. He had to do a lot of part-time jobs like doing
deliveries, selling magazines etc... and that lead him to who he is now, very good in taking care of people around him.

He never thought of becoming a singer. His wish when he was a child was to become the manager of a
supermarket with a very simple and cute reason. "He can eat as many candies as he wants!" ^^

Even though Jaejoong has a feminine face, he has a really built body, thanks to his eagerness in going to the gym.
He was rewarded to have "The Most Beautiful Face" at his entertainment company.

Always Keep The Faith!

[TRANS/NEWS] 100217 G-Dragon’s Confession, “We Are Close To TVXQ”

"Hero Approached Us First"

Gwangnam News:
기사입력 2010.02.17 21:54 최종수정
-Translated TVXQ part

I became close to the other companies singers a lot, and Big Bang became particularly close to TVXQ members of the SM entertainment who is a senior with much experience in Japanese activities.

We became particularly close to TVXQ seniors a lot these days. the past we did kind of have the time to compare each other due to belonging to a different corporation office, but there were many areas we could understand each other because we both are group singers.

Hero, a big brother approached us first, and naturally we became closer to Micky Yuchun too, and I felt becoming their younger brother.

When I am in Japan, I ask TVXQ seniors (big brothers) to buy food for us. And TVXQ gave us all kinds of advices. They are our seniors who stayed in Japan (oversea) for many years where it has different culture. We respect them a lot. It does not matter if we belong to JYP or SM or others, we all belong to a singer’s world. So, we feel that if there are others who are going through tough time, then we may support them together no matter which company we belong to. We feel that our hearts are open more and more now on days. I wish that younger singers will be able to approach to us easily as well.
