[ADMIN POST] Selling: U-Know Yunho's "Close to You" Single 1st Limited Edition

Hey guys, its not confirmed but I was wondering if anyone would be interested in buying U-Know Yunho's "Close to You" Single (from the T.R.I.C.K. Series) 1st Limited Edition? It's a rare find, still has the gigantic Yunho sticker inside, basically NEW without plastic wrap, and never been played. I basically bought this when all T.R.I.C.K. Singles were coming out and I was desperately waiting for Yunho's single to come out, and I got my hands on a copy. My reason for selling this is because I need money for textbooks D: If you're a college student, you should feel my pain T_T

Here are some pics:

[TRANS] The Real TVXQ was in Japan


New article from GQ Korea for September. Really interesting because it covers a lot of aspects.

HIGHLIGHTS

1. DBSK and Johnny's Entertainment spearheading the recent rise of the so-called "Hosomacho style"
2. Host clubs in Kabuki-cho adding "DBSK style guys" on their "menu".
3. How the lawsuit against SM may be bad for DBSK but good for THSK.
4. Koreans underrating the popularity of DBSK in Japan.
5. The entrance of DBSK in the A-list in Japan after 6 years of hard work.
6. Expounds on why Korean fans are one of the most fickle.
7. The unwavering support of the Japanese industry for the boys.
8. SM is planning a new 6-unit male group in case DBSK leaves.


TVXQ sings "I got you~ooo, Under my skin," and dances. When the buttons on the shirts that cling onto their bodies cannot handle their powerful moves and burst, U-Know Yunho's well-developed and chiseled pectoral muscles are shown. Fans from all over Korea, who may have had ill feelings towards the long stretch of Japanese activities, act as though the group had never left and stare at their TV and even go up to the TV screen and stroke it. I'm talking about the comeback stage of that happened after the album's release last December. Fans found something a little odd about TVXQ during this stage. Although the five members' faces were the same, it was as though their faces had been stuck on someone else's body. This was because of their 'muscles'.

TVXQ's thin and muscular bodies are completely different from SM Entertainment's preceding idol groups. The direction that the members of TVXQ are headed is being influenced by the Japanese activities they have been carefully and diligently doing. In Japan these days, their is a 'Hosomacho' or 'thin muscle' trend blazing through the nation. The biggest reason for this trend is because the majority of young Japanese women prefers the thin muscled hosomacho look over the heavily muscled gorimacho (gorilla macho) look.

What am I talking about? There are probably going to be some people who tell me that this trend has been around for a while with the majority of singers in Johnny's Entertainment and with the majority of males in Tokyo having a thin muscle body structure. But what they are talking more about skinny guys who look as though they have muscles because they are skinny, not the 'thin muscle' look. But to think that TVXQ is just one of the many hosomacho groups is a big mistake. This is because the popularity of Tohoshinki, as they call themselves in Japan, is so great and out of this world that it cannot be fully comprehended or understood in Korea.

If we divide the dominating Japanese male idol groups into three categories, the first would be 'role Lolita', groups comprised of pretty boys, the second would be 'Yankees', groups comprised of members who have a bad boy vibe to them, and the third would be the TVXQ style. The TVXQ style's popularity can be properly felt in Japan's host clubs. Koreans may connect the words host or hostess with adult clubs and see these words with a negative outlook, but to many young, handsome and popular college students in Japan, it is the most preferred part-time job.

Different from Korea's hosts, Japan's hosts serve only alcohol and there is a different term for those who provide sexual intercourse and they are called 'Urisen'. In these host clubs that can easily be found in Shinjuku's Gabukicho area, the pictures of the hosts in the clubs tell women what kind of style each host is. Before, most of the people in the pictures copied the style of Johnny's Entertainment's idol groups. But now, at least one or two hosts in every club very conspicuously copies the style of one of the members of TVXQ.

In this area, there was once a time where the most manly people were nabe (a girl dressed up as a guy or a trans gender female). with their thin, pretty bodies. But now many Japanese women are asking for the hosomacho style, men who are not only pretty, but are also manly, and who are not only skinny, but has muscles. The TVXQ wind is blowing through the clubs of Gabukicho.


Since many Korean idol groups are popular not only in Korea but all of Asia, many Koreans may think that TVXQ's popularity is similar to that of other celebrities. Shall we delve deeper to see just how popular TVXQ is in Japan? TVXQ's most recent Japanese single sold almost 200K copies in one week. This sets TVXQ with the second highest first week sales in their agency, Japan's biggest company Avex.

The only group above TVXQ is the 14-member group Exile, the group that received the highest award from the Japanese Record Association and the group that even creates big changes in society with their raging popularity. This means that TVXQ's first album sales beats that of the female leaders of Japanese pop, 'Amuro Namie'. 'Hamasaki Ayumi' and 'Koda Kumi'. This is a feat that not even popular star 'BoA' has achieved. These are the kind of top singers we can compare TVXQ to now.

But I am not basing their popularity on album sales only. TVXQ has set a huge record of being on Japan's representative music chart 'Oricon Chart' as 1st on weekly single sales six times already. Since the year 2000, the number of stars who have attempted to enter the Japanese market is enormous, with stars such as S.E.S, Sugar, Park Junghyun, Rain, Lee Soo Young, Se7en, SS501, Ryu Siwon, Park Yongha, Lee Byunghun, Yoonha, K, Sunmin, Big Bang and Super Junior.

But the only singers who have reached first on Oricon's weekly single charts are BoA (once) and TVXQ (six times). TVXQ also succeeded in being invited to hold two concerts in July at the Tokyo Dome which is considered the Dream Stage, even to Japanese singers. This has never been completed by any other Korean singer before.

But the Bible sends a message, "Prophets do not get respect from their homelands." For some odd reason, TVXQ's outstanding achievements do not seem to be reported or praised in Korea. Also, it is sad to see that TVXQ's success of almost selling 200K copies of their single was buried under the dispute between SM Entertainment and three members of TVXQ (Micky Yoochun, Xiah Junsu, YoungWoong Jaejoong) and the disbandment rumors that followed it.

They are not something something 'sama' (like Yonsama) who were washed ashore by the Hallyu Wave. No, they even asked all Japanese media agencies not to associate the word 'Hallyu' with them (even asking for news articles to be pulled down if the word was used in relation to them), to show that they wished to succeed with their own powers and were able to become widely known in Japan. TVXQ had to erase their nationality in order to gain the acceptance from the Japanese population.

The rumors of disbandment at the height of their popularity has become a hot topic of conversation in the Japanese music industry. Japanese media has been created a daily special to update everyone about what's happening in Korea with regards to TVXQ, and this has caused Avex's CEO to come forward and give an explanatory statement to clam the Japanese fans. He announced that TVXQ's Japanese activitees would continue regardless of what was happening in Korea and he decided to announce this himself. This has never happened before.

It seems as though the way Korean agencies set the income division when writing up the contract has surprised the people of Japan who are used to the Japanese agencies' way of working that gives monthly salaries that may change. Since the first official event TVXQ held after the disbandment rumors came out was in Japan and not Korea, the source of such rumors, with the Fireworks Festival Concert, the Japanese media was more vigilant when it came to reporting the issue than the Korean media.

Therefore, whether they wanted this or not, this case has opened TVXQ up to a wider fan base including the younger generation. YoungWoong Jaejoong, who is the most popular amongst the members in Japan, was even seen in a paparazzi scandal magazine that only extremely famous Japanese celebrities appear in.

Although the situation in Korea is a complete mess, TVXQ might be able to take one step further in their Japanese activities through this happening. But they must once more grab hold of their Korean fans. There are already rumors that the 'light fanbase' is ready to embrace the new 6 member male idol group SM Entertainment is preparing.

As faithful as Korean fans are, they are also able to turn their backs on a singer very quickly. If even the fans who used to embrace them turn their backs on TVXQ, the group will become the prophets who are not respected in their homelands.

[NEWS] Fans File Petition for TVXQ @ National Human Rights Commission

More than 120,000 fans of the K-pop idol group TVXQ, which is embroiled in legal battle against its agency, filed a collective petition with the human rights agency on Friday, judging a working contract made between three members of the group and their agency to be “unfair” and “inhumane.”

Three representatives of the fans visited the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) in Seoul and submitted the petition and a bulky package of papers with their signatures of support.

They said in a statement, “The contract banning TVXQ members from changing their agency for 13 years since their debut is the same as a life-long working contract, which is extremely disadvantageous to the singers.”

They claimed the period is far longer than that of other agencies. “Singers have the right to change their agency to one offering better conditions. Under the contract, however, they have no choice but to work with the present agency virtually until they retire. This is an infringement of human rights,” the statement said.

A NHRC spokesman told The Korea Times, “It will take at least three months to the complete investigation of the case.”

The controversy over the five-member group’s working contract touched off early this month after three of its members ― Micky, Xiah and Hero ― asked the Seoul Administrative Court to terminate the validity of their contract with their agency, SM Entertainment. The other two members, Max and U-Know, did not take part in the action.

According to the legal document filed, the agency prohibited their freedom as artists by claiming that the group’s and members’ activities belonged to the agency, requiring them to follow the agency’s demands to appear at certain performances and broadcasts, and to stay under the agency’s wing for 13 years.

Reports of dissension started circulating about a month ago.

The three members were said to have conflicting interests with SM regarding their private business endeavors in the makeup industry. Max and U-Know, meanwhile, had been busy pursuing individual acting careers in TV soaps in addition to their work with the group.

This raised concern among fans about the group’s potential breakup. Despite the rumor of internal conflicts, the five singers appeared all together, as planned, at a concern in Japan early this month.

SM said, “TVXQ is a group that represents Asia and we believe that their career should continue. We hope to figure things out soon.”

TVXQ debuted in 2004 with the album “Hug” and shot to stardom in Korea, Japan and other parts of Asia. Their subsequent albums were well received and their fourth album, “Mirotic,” released last year, sold 500,000 copies here despite sluggishness in the Korean record market.

[News] An Offering Of A Sacrifice To Spirits Done For HTTG To Pray For The Success Of The Drama

There was an offering of a sacrific to the spirits done for MBC's new Wednesday-Thursday drama 'Heading to the Ground.'
On the 24th at 2pm, the offering was one at MBC's Yangju set and actors such as Jung Yunho, Ara, Lee Yunji, Lee Sang-yoon, Kim Jaeseung etc camealong with Director Park Sungsoo and all the staff.

Jung Yunho, who plays the lead role of Cha Bong-goon, prayed for the success of 'Heading to the Ground' by saying "Please help this drama be a big hit!" and praying alongside fellow actors Ara, Lee Yunji and Lee Sang-yoon.


Director Park Sungsoo said, "I was touched by the passions of these young actors who threw themselves into everything and anything we asked them to do. I think that the hard work of the actors will be seen in the eyes of our viewers," and "I directed this drama with a fun and happy heart because the actors and staff always made the set come alive with their jokes and antics."

Ara, who plays the role of Kang Haebin, said, "Overall, there are a lot of action scenes. Cha Bong-goon (Jung Yunho) especially has a lot of them, but he would rarely use a stunt double and worked hard in all his scenes and that gave all of us strength to work harder," and "Because the script itself was funny, shooting the drama was fun too."

JungYunho, who plays the lead role of Cha Bong-goon, said, "I'm doing everything for the first time so it took me some time to get comfortable, but all the staff members are excellent and all the actors on set were cheering each other on so I'm expecting this drama to be really good," and "I still am lacking in some areas but everyone will be able to see me grow more along with Bong-goon each time an episode airs," and was very modest.

The drama 'Heading to the Ground', which is gaining a lot of attention as this is TVXQ's U-Know Yunho's debut into acting, will first air on September 9th.

[TRANS] 090827 U-know Yunho Successfully Ended a Long 5-Hour Filming Underwater



MBC's new mini-drama "Heading to the Ground" main lead Yunho has successfully ended a long five-hour filming underwater. On the 5th of August, the group had started filming at the Han River.

The protagonist Bong-goon heard about his ex-girlfriend getting married and he felt sad. While talking to Yeon-yi (portrayed by Yoon-ji), he used his head to hit the ball and as a result, he accidentally fell into the water.

Bong-goon continued to shout for help and seeing the situation, Yeon-yi jumped into the water, pulled him out and did CPR.
Yunho actually went through nonstop shots of jumping into the water, showing how professional he could be.

The production team prepared both scenes of Yunho jumping into the water and in the water to show real acting. Yunho requested shot after shot to be retaken even if the director already liked it because of his desire for the drama to be perfect as it can be.

[TRANS] 090826 CreBeau vs. SM Entertainment in 26 Days









It has been previously mentioned that CreBeau, a cosmetics company in which three members of TVXQ (Youngwoong Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun and Xiah Junsu) have invested in, is planning to sue SM Entertainment on the charge of defamation.

On the 31st of last month, the three members of TVXQ went to the Seoul Central District Court to initiate procedures to terminate the company of SM Entertainment's exclusive contractual effect.

MBC TV is still filming the drama "Heading to the Ground" that stars DBSK member Yunho and Go Ah Ra.

MBC staff has stated that because of the fans support for Yunho and Go Ah Ra, the two are exerting their full effort for the filming of this drama.

"Heading to the Ground" is a story about a warm-hearted man who thinks that efforts can achieve dreams.

[Info] TVXQ Special Album 「Always keep the faith」Released!


this is not real,,people in DNBN made this only for fun^^
------------------------------------------------



TVXQ Special Album 「Always keep the faith」Released!

"The five members of TVXQ return for the first time after overcoming the hardships they faced!
They started off with a bang with a special album full of songs composed by the members themselves.
This album can be reveiwed as an album full of love for their fans who have believed in and waited for them."
Reviewer - DNBN SangsangYaechan


Album Name: Always Keep the Faith
Artist: TVXQ
Album Type: Domestic/Studio
Agency: Cassiopeia Ent.
Stars: Five stars (10 out of 10│ there are 1226 reviews)



01. Intro │*Composed/Written/Arranged by: YoungWoong Jaejoong
As the opener of TVXQ's magnificent comeback, the strong beat in this song is noteworthy.
YoungWoong Jaejoong takes on a genre never been taken by him, and the result is a big success.

02. Always keep the Faith│*Composed/Written/Arranged by: TVXQ
The title song which all five members composed/wrote/arranged together. The warm melody is beutiful.
One should listen to the lyrics closely when listening to this song as they talk of their stories of overcoming hardships.
The lyrics also tell of the heart-wrenching tales of what pulled them through.

03. It's business [Narr. Ara]│*Composed/Written/Arranged by: U-Know Yunho
U-Know Yunho says he wrote this song for the fans who are spending their nights alone, envying the female lead role in his upcoming drama.
The song has a warm melody that envelops the hearts of the fans.
Actress Ara, who will be in charge of the narration of this song, gave an alibi (?) saying, "A drama is strictly business, nothing more, nothing less."

04. XIAHmolTIC (You can't Escape it)│*Written by: Choikang Changmin Composed/Arranged by: Micky Yoochun
The melody is extremely addictive, and it is a trendy hook song. Composer Micky Yoochun, said the song was, "A song that, once you listen to it, you can't get out of your head and makes you addicted to Xiahmori."
Regarding the lyrics of the song, which have caused 'Xiah Junsu Loner' rumors to spread, Choikang Changmin said, "The lyrics have a basis on our love for Junsu. The people who have been watching over us know all about it."

05. Lies (A Song dedicated to SM)│*Composed/Written/Arranged by: Cassiopeia
TVXQ's talented fanclub Cassiopeia's present to them.
The lyrics metaphorically talk of the fans' annoyance at SM's 'lies'.
Words cannot describe it, one must listen to it for oneself. Even people who weren't at all interested will become furious after listening to this song.

06. Red Hot Pepper ~Jollokia~│*Composed/Written/Arranged by: YoungWoong Jaejoong
YoungWoong Jaejoong is well known for his love for all foods spicy. So it is easy to misinterpret the contents of this song just by looking at the title.
However, this song is actually a controversial song that make girls blush *sleep.gif* just by listening to the sound 'Ring ring'.
In truth, this is a song that exceeds the sexiness of 'Ride On'. It is about a man who has fallen in love with a 'hot' girl.
YoungWoong Jaejoong has once more deprived the fans of sleep by saying, "I've already thought of the choreography for the concert."

07. Charisma Life (Stuck on me)│*Composed/Written/Arranged by: Xiah Junsu
This is a song written by member Xiah Junsu who says (claims) he is in charge of charisma in the group.
This song is a must for people who can only imagine him as cute. You might not be able to escape the charismatic wrinklies between his brows.
On the other hand, there was a rumor that Choikang Changmin refused to record this song because he did not like the lyrics,
but quickly conceded when Xiah Junsu offered him some game items.

08. A Farewell in November - Flip-flops Bye Flip-flops│*Composed/Written/Arranged by: Micky Yoochun
Mikcy Yoochun, who received a lot of attention when he revealed on a Japanese show that he "tried to wear flip-flops till November", wrote this song with his unique melancholy feelings to represent his feelings when he could no longer wear flip-flops.
This song is a ballad that tells of his promise to his flip-flops that he will see them the year after as he puts them back in his closet.

09. Bolero (Korean Ver.)│*Written by: Choikang Changmin
The song 'Bolero', that has been dubbed by fans as the 'not mythical, but legendary live', has been reborn into a Korean version.
Choikang Changmin, who received much praise from his work with 'Love in the Ice', once more rewrote the lyrics in Korean.
The five members brilliant harmony that is finally heard in Korean shows just how different they are from other idols in terms of skill.

10. To my lovely fans...│*Composed/Written/Arranged by: TVXQ
This is a warm fan song for the fans who waited for and believed in them.
When listening to this song that is filled with their love for their fans, the fans will come to believe that becoming a fan of TVXQ was the best thing they've ever done,
and people who weren't fans will end up reconsidering their current state.

11. Always keep the faith [less vocal ver.]


"Although they had to overcome a big hardship, TVXQ came back with that much more maturity.
There is no one to stop them now that they've bounced back,
and there will be one to surpass them now.
All fans have to do now, is prepare to enjoy their time with these five. Are you ready?"


Until this NR becomes reality. Always keep the Faith. [DNBN Sangsangyechan]

[News] SM x DBSK Lawsuit: “Will The Evidences Application be Accepted?”


As had been reported, besides the provisional disposition to terminate exclusive contract effect, 3 members of DBSK namely Jaejoong, Yoochun, and Junsu also submitted Preservation of Evidence request so that they could calculate the exact amount of their income.

However, in the first hearing held on last August 21st, SM responded regarding the Preservation of Evidence request, “This immediate appeal for Preservation of Evidence can’t be executed.” SM expressed disapproval regarding the submission request. The company explained that DBSK income receipts along with other documents and materials needed for this settlement is company’s trade secret. And if they’re to be exposed to the media, it can lead to fatal effect.

Regarding the problem, the court described an “in camera” system to invalidate SM’s claim of a fatal risk. The “in camera” system is the process in which the viewers of the evidences are to selected/limited number of people only. Because of this, DBSK’s payment issue can be resolved and the current conflict can be raised.

SM officials therefore approved the DBSK’s ‘Preservation of Evidences application’ and the submission deadline is tomorrow, August 26th.

The court judgment whether SM’s application is received as valid evidences or not is to be determined on Friday, August 28th.

Meanwhile, on the same day (August 28th), DBSK fanclub Cassiopeia is showing support to their idol by submitting petition which is signed by approximately 121,073 people at 1:30 p.m to National Human Rights Commission. “DBSK members have been victims of serious human rights violation and now are seeking way to escape from it. We asked the help from National Human Rights Commission to give human rights protection for DBSK members through their court hearing.”

On last August 20th, Cassiopeia had already submitted their petition which was already signed on-line by 120,000 people from August 12th to 18th (six days) to Seoul Central District Court to support the terminate of unfair contract.

[News] Japan Singers Fumiya Fujii Praised Tohoshinki

huaaaa..i love fujii fumiyaaaa...

----------------------------

Japan singer and the lead vocal of popular group Checkers, Fumiya Fujii praised performance of Tohoshinki.


On last August 20th at musical event held in Tokyo Odaiba: “BOY POP FACTORY 09″, Micky Yoochun and Hero Jaejoong’s duet performance on stage led Fumiya to wrote about the memory of him meeting the two Tohoshinki members in his diary blog on the next day, August 21st.

“The atmosphere of the venue was heated up, two Tohoshinki members performed in one color creating big stage. No wonder the tickets went up high at the auction sales site to ¥ 200,000.” he started the introduction. “But I think the visitors there would feel a little awkward with the wide hot response by Tohoshinki fans, yet they’re really creating a good excitement atmosphere.”

“From two members of Tohoshinki I received CD and also handshake. Yatta! Yatta! It’s a rare chance to meet them.” he continued, “I feel the great charm and they’re really someone whom you want to meet. Tohoshinki is getting more and more popular these days. They’re good looking, having great songs, and also good in dance.”

At the Boy Pop Factory event, Tohoshinki’s Jaejoong and Yoochun sang 4 duet songs.

He gave us a good-looking shot when we turned the camera to him. (^0^)

Jaejoong praised the rice crackers a lot, and Yunho praised the sweet rice cake (kaminari okoshi)
Yunho told the staff that he wanted to take some of it (laugh)


The way to the stage!


We'll do our best for today's second show in Tokyo too!
