[TRANS] 04.04.10 Reporter Noumura Etsuko's View on Tohoshinki

On the 3rd, an announcement was made by avex that the Korean dance-vocal quintet Tohoshinki, whose total sales in Japan have exceeded 5 million copies and who has appeared on NHK's Kouhaku Utagassen for 2 consecutive years, will be taking an indefinite break. The reason of this is known to be because of the contract dispute between their Korean company and the 3 members, and after a conference made between the 5 of them and the officials from both Japan and Korea, they have come to a decision to suspend their activities. From now on they will be focusing on their solo activities.

Tohoshinki who had already been a top star in Korea started in Japan as a new artist, mastered the language, and did their activities steadily and honestly. In the beginning, most of their fans consist of women in their 30s and 40s who are Hallyu fans. However, after their great efforts to improve their dancing and singing in Japanese, their fanbase has spread to females who are in their 10s and 20s, and they have become a top star in Japan.

Because the cause of this is the contract dispute with their Korean company, with such great efforts that they're carrying, this break is not something we should be sad about. Because the cause is definitely not that the members hate each other. I want them to do well with their solo activities, and I want to wait believing that the 5 of them to come back with great success and smiles on their faces.
