[TRANS] 101217 TVXQ’s Surprising Sales In Japan..’129 Billion Won’

Group TVXQ ranked second in Japan’s album and DVD sales rankings this year.

According to the ’2010 Artistes’ Total Sales Ranking’ (tallied up till November 22nd), released by Oricon Biz Online on the 6th, TVXQ ranked second behind popular Japanese group Arashi.

It was found that TVXQ raked in sales of 9,411,500,000 Yen through singles, albums and DVD releases this year, which amounts to approximately 129 billion Won.

Their accomplishments predicted such an achievement beginning with their single ‘Break Out’, which was released in January and sold over 250,000 copies in five days, making TVXQ the foreign artiste with the most singles ranked #1 on the weekly charts (7 times).

Also, their ‘Best Selection 2010′ album sold 413,000 copies in a week in February and their DVDs, such as their ‘TVXQ History in Japan Special’, were very popular as well.

[TRANS] 101215 Junsu’s Fans Donate To Help The Hearing-Impaired For The Third Consecutive Year

Xiah Soul’, a fan community dedicated to (Xiah) Junsu, who is currently working as a member of JYJ and a musical actor, has donated money to the ‘Finding Sound for Hearing-Impaired Children’ foundation for the third consecutive year.

As the fans wished to gift Junsu with a meaningful gift rather than a materialistic gift to celebrate his birthday, Xiah Soul made their first donation to the ‘Finding Sound for Hearing-Impaired Children’ foundation on Junsu’s birthday, December 15th, 2008.

The first child to receive the donation was hearing-impaired Kim Dan Hee (Grade 6 at the time). Xiah Soul donated enough money to cover her artificial snail surgery and speech therapy fees and since the successful surgery, Dan Hee has been receiving continuous speech therapy. Currently, she has improved greatly and is able to engage in every-day conversations with short sentences.

Xiah Soul was in the spotlight last December for donating money to Dan Hee’s sister Dan Ah, who was also hearing-impaired, and decided to make their third donation this year to Song Yoo Chan (3 year old boy) to celebrate Junsu’s birthday.

Junsu and his fans impressed many with both singer and fanclub donating to a good cause as Junsu donated treasured belongings to the Snails of Love’s 119 Event of Love Charity Bazaar in January for Xiah Soul, who had been doing charity work in his name, and for the rehabilitation of many more hearing-impaired persons.

The administrator of Xiah Soul stated, “We find it meaningful that our relationship with the ‘Sound Finding Journey’, which began with the hopes that those who couldn’t hear could be given the chance to be moved by Xiah Junsu’s music, has been going on for three years,” and “As Xiah Junsu and Xiah Soul are both very interested in the culture of giving, we wish to keep donating to the worthy cause as long as Xiah Soul is around.”

Xiah Soul’s continuous support for the cause became the stepping stone in changing people’s perspectives of pop culture and fan clubs. Xiah Soul is being used as a desirable example of a fanclub sending a positive message to the youth of Korea to be more active in society.

[TRANS] 101217 TVXQ Official - Message from Changmin

Hello everybody! I'm Choikang Changmin ^^

I went to watch the musical Trax's Young Duk hyung is taking part in - 'The Three Musketeers'.

Despite hearing of Jay hyung's extremely busy schedule what with filming his drama and participating in activities with SM The Ballad, I thought he looked extremely handsome, sang amazingly and had an outstanding performance today in the musical.

There were also many other talented musical actors who took the show very seriously and I found myself completely drawn into the musical.

Although the whole 'good always triumphs over evil' theme was really obvious, it was heartwarming to watch as truth and reason prevailed once again…

Even though I've been so busy recently that I'm really quite drained, seeing Jay hyung's wonderful stage and his charismatic acting today made me even more eager to take my place on stage again as soon as possible.

Jay hyung has been showing off good sides of himself in so many aspects lately and for some unknown reason, it's really excited me ^^ Hahaha

In the near future, I'll be stepping on stage once again. In order to show you all a charming image of myself, I seriously ought to prepare ^^

Please look forward to Dong Bang Shin Ki's return.

The reason I've been so busy recently is to show you all a better side of myself.
Also, I hope you'll support our Jay hyung~
Since he's so cool, I feel like becoming a fan of his.

Everyone, fighting!!~

[NEWS] KBS confirms JYJ’s performance for the ‘2010 Drama Awards’

Last week, JYJ’s first broadcast appearance in Korea via KBS’s “2010 Drama Awards” was reported to be under discussion.

Recently, a representative from KBS’s drama team confirmed on December 14th that JYJ will be performing “Found You” – a track from the “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” OST – for December 31st.

Representatives of JYJ and KBS were said to have argued over the number of songs to be performed in the beginning, but both sides ended up agreeing to KBS’s initial request for a one-song congratulatory performance.

JYJ met with various obstacles in October after the release of their debut album, “The Beginning“, due to legal issues with SM Entertainment. Yet KBS came forward and requested their appearance, reasoning that Yoochun was one of the leading stars for its drama “Sungkyunkwan Scandal”, and that JYJ sang the OST for it.

This performance may allow future opportunities for the boys to perform in additional public venues.

[TRANS] 101214 Tohoshinki to Sing Theme Song for Fuji TV's Drama

On the 23rd of last month, the shocking news that the "new" Tohoshinki would be making a comeback next January was made; and now, their new song will become the theme song for a drama.

The new song, named "torn", is described to portray the gloomy torn feelings in a tangled relationship between a man and a woman. They commented, "It is a powerful dance song that you will be able to enjoy." Although the number of their members has been reduced from 5 to 2, they will not let if affect them in order to come up with the song and to show the audience a powerful stage. With powerful beats, the partial lyrics of the song is revealed, "Is love a crime? Is pain a punishment?". They expressed, "Please expect us to show you our tough and manly side."

The producer of the drama, Toyofuku Youko, personally chose the song for the drama. The drama is titled "Utsukushii Rinjin" (Beautiful Neighbor). In this drama, actress Nakama Yukie will portray an evil woman, while her co-star Dan Rei will be playing the character of a happy housewife who lives next door; and this suspense drama is about how their quiet everyday life is destroyed. Since this story is about woman vs. woman, to avoid creating an overly sweet atmosphere, the producer interfused the world of this drama with a song sung by male vocals.

Upon learning about their comeback, producer Toyofuku immediately offered them the chance. She expressed her thoughts upon listening to the song for the first time, "It is a very thorny and captivating song that captures the instinct of a woman such as jealousy, love and passion. It portrays perfectly the poison that every woman carries, and I immediately thought that it was the one."

The drama will air every Tuesday 10pm starting from January 11.

-Omit general information on Tohoshinki, DVDs, and SM Town in Tokyo-
