Cassies in the Philippines are on fire! For the first time, the Universal Records released a
TVXQ (DBSK, Tohoshinki) CD last December 15, 2009. Even before December ends, they already reached #3 top selling album!!.
Well, this was a good chance for Filipino fans! Buying TVXQ goods online is quite expensive..
here's the UR's article:
Asia's superstar group TVXQ's first Philippine CD release "The 3rd Asia Tour Concert Mirotic Live Album" debuted at #3 in two of the country's biggest record retail chains - Odyssey and Music One! The album charts are based on the total sales tabulated from the three Music One record stores (Glorietta, Greenbelt and Quezon Avenue) from December 14 to 20, 2009 and Odyssey's more than 50 record stores nationwide.
Although it's not an official 5th album, the boys of TVXQ release their live concert album, "TVXQ: The 3rd Asia Tour Concert Mirotic Live Album"! The new live concert CD will consist of tracks from their February 2009 concert at the Seoul Olympic Stadium. Naturally, the guys performed many of the songs off their "Mirotic" album including "Hey! (Don't Bring Me Down)", "Crazy Love" and "Wrong Number" but they also made room for older dance hits like "Rising Sun" and "Purple Line", as well as a few of their Japanese tracks including "Somebody To Love" and "Sky" plus remix versions of perennial favorites "Hug", "The Way U Are" and "Balloons" adding up to a whopping 34 live tracks!
What’s unique about their new 34 track live concert CD album is that it includes solo tracks from each member. Yunho’s contribution is the self-produced track titled "Checkmate". Junsu also produced his own track titled "Xiahtic" featuring SHINee member Key. A solo by Chang-min titled, "Upon This Rock" and one by Jae-joong titled "It’s My World" have also been included. In addition, TVXQ fans can also hear a piano track, performed by Yoo-chun himself titled "Love Bye Love".
TVXQ, an acronym for Tong Vfang Xien Qi, are a South Korean boy band quintet formed under SM Entertainment in 2003. In South Korea they are known as Dong Bang Shin Ki. They were later introduced in Japan as Tohoshinki under the Avex sub-label Rhythm Zone in 2005. Their name roughly translates as "Rising Gods of the East". Since their debut, TVXQ has become one of the most popular singing groups in East Asia, gaining great popularity in such countries as China, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and other East Asian regions.

My favorite parts were:
Hey! Don't bring me down
Are you a good girl?
Opening Ment---(they were hilarious!! XDD)
Somebody to love
Actually---the whole concert was superb! (wish I was there..and at the Secret Code concert too.)
These boys know how to make the crowd go wild..lol
TVXQ will attend Japan's TBS CDTV Premiere Live for the third year.
Through a message on their official Japanese website, TVXQ has confirmed that it will attend the year-end program on the 31st from 11:45PM to 5AM. They spent their last moments of 2007 and 2008 here as well, so it's essentially a tradition for the group.
Despite the issues that TVXQ has with SM Entertainment, their Japanese company Avex has a full schedule for them. The quintet will be attending the Japan Record Awards on the 30th and will also be attending NHK's program on the 31st, which is before the TBS program.
Ahhh I wanna end 2009 with them--unfortunately, i'm still here..and they are already there..lol
Anyway--Thank God Avex is there--keeping them busy..because of Avex they could still work together despite the chaos with SME.
Let's pray 2010 's a great year for everyone!! Happy New Year!
I guess Japanese TVXQ fans aren't the only ones striving to put their feelings in print on Korean papers - Baidu BAR, a TVXQ fan group on Baidu, purchased an advertisement that was printed on Gyunghyang, a daily Korean newspaper on December 26, TVXQ's sixth anniversary.
On the advertisement, the members of Baidu BAR left a message to SM Entertainment expressing their full support for TVXQ and request for SME to stop its alleged harassment of the five members:
"You are trying to cut the dreams that [TVXQ] has been creating for the past six years,and are hurting the hearts of hundreds of thousands of people who felt joy because of them. Stop your actions that are hurting the five members. Let them sing freely without any constraints. The storm will wither soon. We will protect them forever so that they are not harmed. We will forever wait.
We are always standing by TVXQ"
- China's TVXQ Baidu BAR -
Baidu BAR was also helped by Korean fans, who distributed this advertisement to various media and press outlets. "Because this is TVXQ's sixth anniversary, Chinese Casseiopeians wanted to deliver an advertisement that expresses our current feelings across the sea," one of the participants explained, adding, "Right now, SM Entertainment is constantly hurting TVXQ. However, all of the TVXQ fans will unite to form a solid knot in order to help TVXQ keep their dreams."
In the advocates' press release, the fans stated, "We will wait until the day that TVXQ can sing without burden when the rain stops and the sky is clear ... Until [SM Entertainment] stops harassing TVXQ, we are committed to protect them."
On a brighter note, TVXQ appeared as five on Asahi TV's Music Station Super Live on Christmas day and is scheduled to attend the Japan Record Awards on the 30th and NHK's Kohaku Uta Gassen on the 31st.
Despite the lawsuit controversy that has been going on for half a year now, we would like to wish TVXQ a happy sixth anniversary and hope 2010 brings an optimistic resolution to these issues.
