[TRANS] 02.22.10 Xiah Junsu Mesmerizes Audience in "Mozart!"

The incarnation of love and freedom child musical prodigy Mozart, [Mozart!] the musical’s last performance in Seoul was on the 20th, and Xiah Junsu’s explosive live performance mesmerized the audience.

Child music prodigy Mozart’s legendary life has been presented in front of an audience, Xiah Junsu’s performance on that day won the unanimous praise of seniors, the dreamy live singing getting favourable reviews.

In the eye-catching chapter 12, at the playground, while dressing up a new stage, with a Mozart who reunited with the Beverly family, to match their silly image, four words “TVXQ” and “Xiah Junsu” were called out, causing the audience to collapse with laughter.

When Constantine and her loved one Mozart reunited, Constantine’s skirt rolled up a bit, a charming yet innocent joke by Junsu “I can see your underwear” was also made.

The most spectacular was Chapter 14. The Archbishop of Cologne was in front of the emperor for opportunistic theft of Mozart’s chance to perform. When Mozart found him in a fit of anger, in the situation of a opposition, the words “You are an idiot” exploded. The archbishop did not understand and asked, “What do you mean by idiot?” “Count Arco! Do you know what is an idiot?” When the lines came out consecutively the audience burst out in fits of laughter.

With structured conflicts in the extreme, such performances let audiences feel fast and tense dramatic action. Following the story’s epic progression, passionate live performances let the piece of work show fluent rhythm and made the musical doubly interesting.

The audience have said that “This kind of singing is in no way inferior to the explosiveness of a bullet, it makes people forget this is live, it’s like being in a dream.” “Especially Xiah Junsu’s natural yet not indifferent kind of singing, it’s like a child who hasn’t grown up yet, the pure image of Mozart lets people feel closer to the character.

His partner on screen, Ara, is also nominated. The ceremony will to be aired on KBS 2TV the 26th of March.

[INFO] 02.25.10 DBSK's "Tokiwo Tomete" to be Used for Cosmetics

As a number of idols make their big comebacks in Korea, DBSK will be busy making a return of their own with a new single overseas in Japan.

It’s been revealed by AVEX that DBSK will be dropping a brand new single that will include Toki Wo Tomete (Let’s Stop Time), TVXQ NONSTOP-MIX VOL.2 (this is so wrong. the guys nonstop mix vol.2 is a whole different cd...=__=) and Yunho’s solo track Checkmate. Toki Wo Tomete will reportedly be used to endorse MENARD, the internationally-known beauty/cosmetic brand.

Although Toki Wo Tomete was also featured on the BEST SELECTION album, this release combined with the new endorsement has led fans to believe that DBSK will grace Japan with fresh activities next month.

Meanwhile, the Blue Light DVD version (Blu Ray) of 4th LIVE TOUR 2009 ~The Secret Code~FINAL in TOKYO DOME is set to be released next month on March 17.

Let’s hope that DBSK is indeed cooking up some new activities this month; it’d definitely be relieving for fans after the unsettling news earlier regarding DBSK's agencies, SM Ent. and AVEX.

[TRANS] 02.2410 Tohoshinki is Yet to Disappear!



Three of DBSK's members in Korea are still in a dispute with their company, while in Japan, they have once again proven that they are Asia's best. Oricon Chart news reported on the 23rd that DBSK's "BEST SELECTION 2010" has sold 413,000 copies, and that it took the top spot in the March Oricon Monthly Chart; this is the highest record for a foreign group. The record was previously set by Bon Jovi's "These Days" which was released in June 1995 with 379,000 copies sold. From the 17th of February, the local sales of "BEST SELECTION 2010" came to a total of more than 200,000. From this, we can see how they took first place consecutively for days, and after a week created the record of selling more than 400,000 copies. After their debut in Japan last April 2005, this is the first time they claimed the top spot through an album, and not a single; of course, they were also the first Korean boy band to do so. Up until now, the best album chart ranking was their 4th Japanese album "The Secret Code" last March.

Oricon stated that, "Just like last year's total album sales got the good result of 'BEST 3' in the charts, the DBSK who soared high in 2009 were chosen to be models for the cover page of women's magazine 'JJ.' Their popularity cannot be stopped," and more comments like these.

This album is a collection of the members' chosen songs; the CD+DVD version includes 11 songs' PVs. The 2CD+DVD version is a compilation if the members' handpicked songs, new song "Tokiwo Tomete," public download limited song "Endlessly Sweet," and the theme song of this year's movie to be released in September, "With All My Heart." "Endlessly Sweet" and a mix of currently hot song "TVXQ NONSTOP-MIX VOL. 2" will be meeting everyone shortly.

On the other hand, this time's "BEST SELECTION 2010" will be released in Korea on the 5th of March; album stakeholders are concerned about the result because it's difficult nowadays to sell CDs in Korea. In 2008, the official 4th Korean album "MIROTIC" exceeded 500,000 copies in Korea, being hailed as the top-selling album for that year.

[FANACC] "I'm A Man, and I Love TVXQ!" by BigEast



13 years old, Junior high school student: My mom loves TVXQ and since my friends tell me I look like Junsu, I started to see their DVD’s and became a fan. ^^ I have few guy friends who are also TVXQ fans at school and it is so much fun to share new stuff about them with my fan friends.

18 years old, student: My young sister loves TVXQ. We are so close, so I watched DVD with her, and without knowing how and when it happened, I became fan of TVXQ too! ^^ They sing and dance so well and all five of them look great! I love the fact that they are such a good friends with each other. That's how we guy friends should be! I purely love all members of TVXQ!

21 years old, student: I am Xiah fan. I am a guy who likes women. But, TVXQ is the guys who look super cool in my eyes. I love “purple line” and I often imitate TVXQ fashion. I would love to find more male fans of TVXQ to be my friend.

25 years old, businessman: I liked backstreet boys in the past. TVXQ is from Korea which is near from Japan so it makes me feel closer to TVXQ and I easily became their fan. When I sing TVXQ song, everyone loves it. (Do I sound like bragging? hahaha.) I wish to know even more about TVXQ!

35 years old, businessman: I was interested in Korea before. And when my friend gave me TVXQ’s album “T” last year, I loved it! So I joined Bigeast and after a-nation I became even bigger fan because real TVXQ is even cooler! At my company's Karaoke gathering, I sing “Beautiful You”. When I attended Kobe Fan meeting, Yuchun and I had an eye contact with each other and he yelled “Oh, there is a man here!” And he looked so happy! LOL

[TRANS] 02.25.10 Japanese Idol NEWS Postpones Release Date



Johnny's Entertainment idol group NEWS has decided to postpone the release of their new single 'さくらガール(Sakura Girl)', which was scheduled to be out on March 24th, by one week.

A representative of the Japanese Records Association analyzed the situation and said in an interview with 'Saijo Woman' that "Korea's top idol group DBSK is releasing a new single '時ヲ止メテ(Please Stop Time)' on the same day," And "It can be analyzed that NEWS moved their release date because they are afraid to meet DBSK on the charts."

He also said, "NEWS holds the record of 11 consecutive albums ranking first on the Oricon Charts ever since their debut. It can be seen that they fear this record might be broken if they release their single the same day DBSK does," and "If it had been Arashi, who ranks first in overall annual sales, or KAT-TUN, who sold 350,000 copies of their single 'Love yourself〜君が嫌いな君が好き〜' that was used as the main theme song of drama "Sassy girl Snako", they would have gone up against DBSK but this decision was a wise one."

(omitted)

But despite their soaring popularity, they seem to be showing a weak side in front of 'DBSK' and fans felt upset at this saying things such as, "This makes me feel complicated." and "Why are they pushing back their release date?"

On the other hand, NEWS' '恋のABO' that was released last year has sold an accumulative 234,000 copies. 'Saijo Woman' says "These sales may reflect the best of NEWS' capabilities."

[TRANS] From Cassiopeia to International Cassiopeians

This is part of Tohosomnia's project Thanks to..., where translators from Tohosomnia generously translated letters from International Fans to Cassiopeia and the reply letters to International Fans from Cassiopeia.




To. Tohosomnia

Five people who have gathered full of passion under the four letters that are TVXQ..
and us, who gathered full of love for them under the name Cassiopeia..

And in a far away place..
In an unfamiliar.. and different place, there are fans who care for them too..

When I saw the letter talking about the fact that international fans
rely on.. care for.. and support Cassiopeia as much as they do TVXQ
my heart swelled with emotions..

Although I am only a small presence in comparison to Cassiopeia as a whole..
I am so thankful to the international fans for sending us heartfelt letters
that I decided to send you all my thanks, small as it may be..

It could have been that... It was easy for us to know about them -
Because we saw them constantly on programs ever since they debuted..
They were on whenever we turned the TV on..
And falling in love with them was so natural that I don't remember when it happened exactly..

It could have been that... It was easy for us to find out what they wanted to say to us -
I am always thankful to God for this..
We were born as people on the same land... under the same sky as them..
Under the same emotions.. the same language.. we were able to hear what their hearts wanted to say to us very easily..

But for the countless number of international fans... It's probably not the same for you..

You cannot see them unless you put in some effort..
You cannot understand what they are trying to say unless you set aside some time..

When they perform in Japan,
when I support them as Tohoshinki, not TVXQ..
I feel as though I am able to experience a little of what you all go through,
although I cannot confidently say that I know how you feel completely..

Thanks to all of you,
who nevertheless try to..
love them... and understand them as much as we do..

I am learning that even their mere presence is a great gift..
I am learning that even their mere presence greatly moves people..

Whether they are TVXQ or Tohoshinki..
No matter where they were born or where they sing..

I am learning that the music, the heart's melody, can unite us all as one..
Regardless of the fact that we do not live under the same sky..
Regardless of the fact that we do not speak the same language..

It may be... that we are all united as one
under the same sky.. the same land.. the same emotions.. the same language.. that is TVXQ^^

I am sure that you all are going through times as hard as ours are right now..

But let's endure these troubled times together..
Let's overcome this together being thankful and moved
by their presence.. and their music..

These are my words of thanks that I send to you, this is the most I can give you in words..
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart..

And I love you..♡

I keep praying, Don't forget, Baby We keep the faith eternally!!

Always keep the Faith★


Excerpt from Separate letter:



And in the midst of that, I read your letters.. Yes.. As soon as I read your letters I began writing this e-mail..
Because I was filled with emotions, my letter got long.. and convoluted..

But please send my letter to them..
Please.. Please..
I'm not threatening you..

But.. You could say that I am pressuring you just a little.. lol..

I beg of you..

To our TVXQ, the international fans are as great a strength to them as we are..
For that, I am thankful.. and thankful once more..
If the heavens are watching over us
I wonder why they wouldn't pay attention to so many people's earnest wishes..

Cassiopeia, We are one!
Thank you for the heart-warming letters.
Really, thanks for acknowledging us i-Cassies T___T
We really are joined by 5 people.
I am truly grateful for all the love we share and the one thing that brings us together
Our Dong Bang Shin Ki.
Our lights in the dark sky.
Our reason's for the existence of "Cassiopeia".

Thank you...
to Every single Cassiopeia out there.
No matter if you're a little fan who just listens to their music,
or a major fan like I, we are still connected.
I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for support our boys.

Now more than ever, We must keep the faith!
DBSK must receive our faith!

[TRANS] 02.25.10 Lee Soo Man's Resignation Has "No Particular Change in SM"

Daily News Korea
ⓒ 매일경제 & mk.co.kr
2010.02.25 11:24:37 입력


A founder of the SM entertainment resigned from SM Entertainment.

SM entertainment spokesman explained that,
"from now on Lee Soo Man will focus only for future foreign production activities."

Lee Soo Man will withdraw from his duties at SM (Korea) which he founded in 1995.
He will formally resign from a public management director's position on the 25th,
and stay only as a main shareholder of the SM entertainment in Korea.

However, it is expected that no particular change will be made at SM after his resignation from the director's position since SM (in Korea) has been administered by the representative Kim Myongmin.

However it could bring the case that the SM artist's situation/내실
(*No specific word written here about what kind of artist's "situation/내실")
could be strengthened/improved/강화될 due to this change at SM entertainment (Korea).

Recently Avex sold their stock to Lee Soo Man and Neowizbugs.
Even if Lee Soo Man has resigned from SM director’s position,
he remains strong as the main shareholder of the SM owning total of 28.3% in share.

[INFO] 01.24.10 Z100 (NY Music Station) Adds A Tohoshinki Artist Page



It was previously reported that Z100, New York's popular FM radio, introduced "BREAK OUT!" last February 18th through the morning show "Elvis Duran & the Morning Zoo."
Now, they even added a Tohoshinki artist page to their site! It still looks empty, but they have filled in the Biography and Discography section (incomplete).

BIOGRAPHY
Formed by SM Entertainment in Korea as a standard boy band of sorts, Tong Vfang Xien Qi (also known as Dong Bang Shin Ki and Tohoshinki, depending on which country one is from) quickly became a leading front in the "Hallyu" Korean wave of entertainment across Asia, akin to the Latin wave of the late '90s in the U.S. The group was assembled in a Menudo-esque manner, with the similar intent of rotating members out when they became less popular or photogenic. After massive backlash by fans, the group was left alone. Luckily for the record label, the band also became one of the biggest acts in Asia. The band's debut in Korea, Hug, proved to be just the type of bubblegum pop hungrily devoured by the fans. After a successful full-length debut in Tri-Angle and a strong follow-up with 2005's Rising Sun, the band embarked on an Asian touring and media blitz, picking up fans along the way, despite singing primarily in Korean and English. After a third Korean album and a series of scandals, the band focused on the Japanese market, releasing tracks in Japanese (learning the language as they went) and scoring hits with a full Japanese album (Five in the Black) and a series of concerts that included the massive Budokan. While developing beyond bubblegum into still mainstream but more mature pop and a cappella vocalists, the band released numerous albums across three countries throughout 2006 and 2007. Further touring throughout Asia (including a memorable concert during a typhoon in Taiwan) led to more Japanese success, culminating in the number two slot debut on the Oricon charts for the album T in 2008 (preceding singles also marked the first time non-Japanese artists grabbed the number one Oricon position). ~ Adam Greenberg, All Music Guide

[TRANS] 02.24.10 Message from Kim Jaejoong!

T/N: This plan was to collect 3000 messages (in a post card form) in total, from Korean, Chinese, and Japanese fans to celebrate Jaejoong’s 24th (in Korea, 25th) birthday. The target for the Japanese fans were to collect 1000 messages, but in the last, there were 2012 messages! The following pictures are the post cards collected from both the Korean and Japanese fans.

Though you're older than me, it feels like you're a baby.
I'll keep thinking that way, you are the baby of the group.
That will never change. No matter how old you progress to be.

Put on a smile.

Don't you know it makes us smile filled with love?
I hope you had an awesome time with friends/family/dogs/trees or anything else you could've celebrated with. ^____^

Good day, Bigeast members.

We think most of you have already known this from various newspapers, but on the Oricon weekly ranking chart for the week of 3/1, Tohoshinki has broken the record for having the highest initial sale for a foreign group, and this is also their first album that ranks first on the chart.
We believe that we are able to obtain this wonderful result is thanks to the unceasing and earnest support of Bigeast members. Thank you very much.

Please keep supporting Tohoshinki for a long time.

"Please keep supporting Tohoshinki for a long time."
Well that's a given.
I had no intentions of swaying from them. ^___^
DID YOU?
If you did, do me a favor, slap yourself.
Thankies! =]

[NEWS] 02.22.10 Another Record Broken; Held for 14 Years

Okies, this is the newest broken record so I'll start here...
though I'll probably post a few more from before this but yeah..
we start here! ^__^


The Best First Action Sales: Oricon Chart:

[#1] 413,000 "BEST SELECTION 2010" TVXQ//DBSK 2010/02/17
[#2] 379,000 "G's Days" Bon Jovi 1995/06/12
[#3] 311,000 "Greatest Hits Chapter One" Backstreet Boys 2001/10/24




It is announced on the 22nd, a Korean popular dance vocal group of 5, DBSK's first best album "BEST SELECTION 2010" (released on the 17th ), recorded 413,000 pieces of the best first action sales of the foreign group category and acquired the first place by album ranking (dated March 1) for Oricon Weekly Chart.

It updated the past record of 379,000 pieces of Bon Jovi "G's Days" after an interval of 14 years 9 months from June, 95. DBSK's best selection album is also the first place acquisition of DBSK's album after their Japanese debut from five years ago. DBSK also accomplished the first splendid achievement as an Asian male artist. (*No other Asian artist sold so many pieces of albums in the history of Japan. Japan is the second largest market after the USA.)

The album had the complete conquest to keep the first place daily chart from the first day release. The national CD shops labeled "SPECIAL Store DAY" on the release day on the 17th, and the fans rushed to purchase the album. It was sold out on the same day, and an album gave a vivid description of horrifying (incredibly appealing) popularity in all the stores.

DBSK will appear at "Music Fair" (Saturday, 6PM) affiliated with Fuji TV on the 27th, and they will release a new single "Tokiwo Tomete" on the 24th and also release a DVD "BEST VIDEO CLIP" (temporary titled), on the 24th in March.
