Although BoA is a top artist in Asia but she’s a newbie in America. SM representative said she’ll start off one step at a time with the basics such as talk shows and interviews.
TVXQ experienced all kind of difficulties and went through a lot of suffering on Japan’s stages. After ‘MIROTIC’ promotions, they quickly took off to Japan to promote this month’s new single and soon after that there’s the 4th Japanese album coming up.
First half of the year, TVXQ will stay in Japan doing promotions. 2nd half of the year they’ll come back to Korea with activities.
