[News] TVXQ’s Video Showcases Saipan


The sand, surf and scenery of tropical Saipan served as the backdrop
for a recent video taping by popular East Asia boy band “TVXQ.”

Also marketed as Tohoshinki in Japan and Dong Bang Shin Ki or Dong
Bang Shin Gi in Korea, TVXQ visited the Northern Mariana Islands on
January 13-17, to video tape for an upcoming music video and SBS TV,
one of three major national channels in Korea.

With a band name roughly translated as “Rising Gods of the East,”
TVXQ members Xiah, Micky, Hero, Max, and U-Know showcased several
island locations during the taping, including the white sand beaches of
Managaha Island and the scenic natural sites of the Grotto, Bird
Island, Suicide Cliff and Banzai Cliff. They also visited the Korean
Peace Memorial and highlighted the numerous outdoor sports activities
available year round at their lodging at Pacific Islands Club Saipan.

“TVXQ is a South Korean band that also happens to be quite popular
in our major tourist market of Japan, so we’re quite fortunate to have
them video tape here,” said Marianas Visitors Authority managing
director Perry Tenorio. “Their visit provides a unique opportunity for
us share the beauty of our islands with their many music fans
throughout Asia.”

Since their debut in 2003, TVXQ has become one of the most popular
singing groups in East Asia, gaining great popularity in such countries
as China, Singapore, Thailand, and other East Asian regions. Their
repertoire across these diverse markets ranges from a cappella to pop.
