[News] High F/X Rate a Boon for Korean Singers

Posted in News with tags , , on March 7, 2009 by kenkyu

The soaring won-dollar exchange rate has prompted Korean singers to look overseas for more lucrative deals. Rain, TVXQ, Jewelry, Shin Seung-hoon and other famed Korean pop singers have upped the number of their engagements overseas. The weakening Korean won against the U.S. dollar and Japanese yen means more earnings for K-pop singers on foreign stages. Their representatives are reportedly very busy planning concerts, fan meetings, and other events in foreign locations.

For instance, Rain held fan meetings in Tokyo and Osaka on January 12th and 14th. He drew more than 3,000 fans at each of four meetings, once again demonstrating the power of his stardom. He’s now planning an Asian tour. TVXQ already released the group’s 26th single in Japan and is getting ready for third Asian tour concerts. Korea’s ballad king Shin Seung-hoon will also release his second regular album in Japan on April 25th. He’ll also tour four cities in Japan from late April to early May.

Finally! Finally!

TVXQ will appear on 「ザテレビジョンHOMME」 Magazine!

You can’t see much from this *cough*tiny*cough* picture, but it’s a really dreamy and cool picture.
It was really cold during the photo shoot but five of them kept telling themselves “It’s cold…No, no…It’s not!” and were then overheard laughing.
They finished the photo shoot really well.
Please look forward to all kinds of poses from TVXQ which were done while they were half-freezing!

“TVXQ’s MIROTIC is hard to sing along”

America’s singer Natalie a.k.a Pumashock did a cover of SNSD’s Gee using R&B style making it a hot topic online with over million views on her youtube. For Natalie, TVXQ’s MIROTIC is the hardest to sing along.
On the 4th, Natalie participated a press conference held by Seoul’s Broadcasting System (SBS). That had caused a rise of popularity for her, acknowledging how it feels to be a Korean artist. Natalie said, “MIROTIC’s lyrics are long, the tempo is too fast so it’s hard to take in”. She also mentioned that she decided to sing ‘Gee’ it’s because the song gave her an urge to dance, so that caught her attention/interest.

After listening to ‘Energy’, she expressed that she is happy a musician like BoA is crossing over to America’s music industry. Natalie appraised Star King’s MC Kang Ho Dong as “Best Dresser”, Shinwa is her favorite group, even indicated her love for Kpop music. Natalie will participate on Star King on 7th this month. This again will make her a hot topic.

The county of Sendai organised an “Eco Live Sendai” concert on the 28th of February to increase the youths’ awareness of protecting the environment. Popular K and J pop artists such as LGYankees and TVXQ performed and encouraged the idea of preserving the environment, and an extremely good atmosphere was created.

“Environmentally Friendly Bags”, “Saving Water” and “Saving Electricity” were the themes of this concert. In between songs, the performers would share their own little tricks on how to care for the environment. For example, Hiro from LGYankees shared about how he would “link caring for the environment to every tiny action [he] does.”

This year was the fourth year this concert was held. 500 lucky members of the audience received an energy-saving light bulb from a lucky draw.

DBSK Pictures, Images and Photos

A guy from http://www.tvxqbro.com/

I only know,
I like you guys,
not because of your appearances.
It’s only because of your kindness, honesty, courage, genuineness,
only because of your extraordinary strengths.
You guys are my role model,my purpose.
A group of God’s children.

Donated blood because were penniless to buy cookies,
Relief though life’s torturous,
Although the oldest but very pure,
Such Hero JaeJoong,
Who would not like?

Taking on an everlasting mission,
Canonical dancing king,said “I will not let anyone leave” firmly,
Caused everyone to forget that he is only a child.
Loving such U-Know YunHo still need a reason?

Wage because of his little brother,
Tears fall till dawn because of a broken home,
Self learned talented pianist,but says, “I’m not a good composer”.
He is Micky YooChun whom we love so much.

Being called as invincible teenager,
Worked hard for six years to succeed his dream,
Painfully cried a lot when he lost his voice during puberty,
but still never said “give up” these two words.
support you, Xiah Junsu!

Never really talk during variety shows,
Didn’t give up education though live such hectic life,
Humbly says, “I’m not important”.
Sincere, honest, mature.
He is ChoiKang ChangMin whom many are envious of.

Great at rapping,
Heavenly voice,
Perfect composing,
Causes giddiness kind of choreography,
Amazing advancing speed for foreign languages,
Loving such TVXQ still need a reason?

Everyone is perfect to the limit,
Timeless perfection,
Making us having hard time to choose our favorite,
Each of them are uniquely perfect,
Loving such TVXQ still need a reason?

Whatever the setbacks,
Regardless of the low tide or high tide,
Good times and bad times,
Unity from beginning to the end,
sharing the glory or shame,
Loving such TVXQ still need a reason?

Forthright,
innocent,showing everyone their mischievous side,
regardless of their image,
doesn’t have a diva’s attitude.
Loving such TVXQ still need a reason?

Micky YooChun’s perfect sexiness,
ChoiKang ChangMin’s intelligent cuteness,
Xiah JunSu’s artistic talents,
Hero JaeJong’s bumpy indomitableness,
U-Know YunHo’s strong determinations,
Loving such TVXQ still need a reason?

I really want to know,
loving and supporting them really need a reason?
If it’s really necessary for ten thousand reasons,
I’ll still say the same thing for ten thousand times,
“Because universally there’s no one like TVXQ!”

Making it hard for people not to love them.

Cassiopeia understands, that’s why they’ve build one large red ocean.
Heaven’s Cassiopeia will keep shining.

Therefore, please continue to hwaiting! AZA FIGHTING!
Hwaiting together!!

[Trans] TVXQ and Smap’s Performance on SMAPxSMAP

Korea and Japan’s shining stars in the singing industry become one through music.

Group TVXQ appeared in a music show hosted by Japan’s SMAP, “SMAPXSMAP”, which is an immensely popular show aired on FUJI TV. The two groups also performed on a common stage.
The episode, which was aired on the 2nd of March, featured the two groups performing TVXQ’s “Purple Line” and “Why Did I Fall For You?”; this also served to build up friendships between the two groups. Not only were the SMAP members familiar with the choreography of “Purple Line”, they were also relatively familiar with and able to perform both of TVXQ’s songs. This made fans of the two groups elated.

Other than the interactive stage between members of the two groups, the show also aired humourous scenes of TVXQ and SMAP joking around with each other and bringing laughter to the audience.

SMAP members asked TVXQ, “Did you guys learn Japanese through Japanese dramas?”, to which Hero Jaejoong replied, “Engine, Good Luck, Long Vacation etc, these shows were quite interesting.” All the shows Hero Jaejoong mentioned casted Takuya Kimura. After hearing this, Masahiro Nakai commented that “All of us have acted in dramas before.” Mood maker Xiah Junsu said, “Utaban was very interesting as well.”, causing SMAP members to laugh loudly. Utaban is not a Japanese drama, but a music programme hosted by Masahiro Nakai. Laughter also ensued when Xiah Junsu performed his gags.

Other than that, U-Know Yunho also performed his version of counting in 3s. The other members also showcased their various talents, causing the audience to laugh continously.
This particular episode of “SMAPXSMAP” introduced TVXQ as “A super group that started from Korea, a group of 5 who are equipped with extraordinary performing abilities and vocals.”
