The name who has awaken the entire pop world. Tohoshinki, their popularity and talent are growing rapidly. After making debut in 2005, they’re experiencing a steady high-speed growth until now. In August a-nation 09 held in Nagai stadium (29th, 30th), as reported by Korea Daily News, they would make the 4th times appearance. In addition of the first concert at Tokyo Dome which turned to be successful, Tohoshinki, for has been noticed, is running their very own “best summer”.
A Crushing Force
Tohoshinki is having their sweeping attack. Yunho, the leader, “We just happened to finally realize that our popularity is growing high recently. It’s an unbelievable feeling. Thank you very much for that.” he said in wide smile. Hero Jejung who is responsible as the main vocal of the group explained what it means by just realizing their popularity. “More people now could suddenly aware of our appearance” he said. “Before, when I had no make up on, I could walk around without everyone notice, but now, even when I’m wearing a hat to undercover, people just suddenly knows. For example, when I’m in convinience store, I could hear people starts to questioning who is me, like ‘Don’t you think he’s just like TVXQ member?’ and another one will say ‘No, he couldn’t be!’” Jejung laughed. “But I better pretend not to hear anything.”
The desire for the 5th stage
Does not lose the original intention even when popularity and capability are zooming
The most eye-catching thing among the members is the increasing number of male fans. “We heard for this year, the number of male fans who get interest to us is increasing plentifully. They said we had good songs. I must say, as an artist, this is overjoyed me much.” Yunho said. However, as an idol group, there’s one possible thing that can’t be avoidable. Following an increasing popularity, is a rapid decreasing of privacy. “We can’t have a truly rest day. There’s no day where you can actually relax all day.” (Hero Jejung), good thing that all members are still in their beginning 20 years old. It’s an agony for popular stars, however, “The hard moments when we have to work all day, abandoning our resting time, yet when we come up the stage in many regions to see a lot of people coming to our concert… the hard times are swept away.” (Park Yuchon) said to keep on faithful day by day. Since 2004 in Japan, five of them are still living together in a mansion in Tokyo downtown. “We talk about a lot of things. We talk about music, about game, about anything people in their 20 years talking. There’s always Junsu who keeps telling jokes. No matter what, we always want to be like this, the five of us. Things we’re impossible to do alone, becomes possible when we all five people do together.” Yunho said proudly about the good teamwork in them.
Hero Jejung on behalf of other 5 members talked about the 5th a-nation, “It’s a great show with a lot of artists performing, there are many people who are not our fans as well. How we can live up the stage with our power, that’s the burden of this big stage.” Yunho added, “Also there are many collaboration stages we can’t do with a lot of artists before, that can be done on this stage. I’m so looking forward to it.” he showed his desire.
Awaken (We’re aiming for a new Tohoshinki’s goal)
Changmin revealed, “Until now, I still have the rookie feeling whenever we perform that never changes.” he told in calm expression of him.
“Of course we’re looking forward to get awards like anyone else. However, to get that, it’s not likely that we will do something we won’t do. We will just work our best, and see how’s the result later. Being number one is not always the most important thing.” Yunho said emphatically.
Ever since January 2008 release “Purple Line” until April this year relese “Share The World”, they already have six continuous Oricon Weekly Chart 1st singles (except planning work). They have become the first foreign artist that record such success. It’s in the end, a result of them not losing their original intention everytime they create a new record album.

TVXQ Comes to Shanghai; Groups of fans buy tickets
On October 2nd Korean idol group TVXQ will come to Hongkou Soccer Standium. Since May 31st of last year, this will be their second time coming to Shanghai for a concert. According to reporters, TVXQ's fans tend to buy tickets as a group, and there is usually a group of fans who go to every show.
For TVXQ's tour in China, the Nanjing stop sold tickets worth more than 10,000,000 in total; the Beijing stop was sold out 1 week before the concert, and tickets for the 2 day concert in Shanghai are hard to find now. It seems like there are very few tickets left. However, even though the sales are impressive, there aren't a lot of fans in the total box office of the Shanghai office [T/N: As in the ticket-selling places]. The people in charge of the tickets told the reporters that waiting in line was never something that TVXQ fans did; instead, buying in groups was their specialty. "The key to maintaining TVXQ's charms [T/N: poplarity] is network. The fans create fan clubs and forums and every group of fans have close relations with each other. When there are news on the internet, fans from different countries would know immediately. Even before ticket-selling for a concert started, the fan groups would communicate to buy as a group, and the people in charge would place orders for the tickets. Therefore, there are only a few people in the ticket-selling places, but they usually buy in large quantities."
With an attendance rate of 100% at their concerts, is TVXQ's mainland fan community actually that big? From reporters’ knowledge, those that watch the concerts are basically the same group of fans. No matter where TVXQ goes to hold a concert, the fans would follow them to that country.
The Shanghai stop in October 2nd will be the last stop in mainland China. The concert song list and schedule will be similar to those from the Nanjing and Beijing stops. As for the dance stage, the Shanghai stop will be a new challenge – the audience will not stand and watch like in the Nanjing stop; the stage also won’t be like the one from Beijing, where it was extended from the center stage. Instead, the stage will ingeniously be a "王" shape. This not only benefits the audience in the front. Those in the back can also see TVXQ face-to-face. The organizers stated, "The audience from the Shanghai concerts will stand on the chairs to view. The stage design will allow the audience's view to be parallel with the stage, and not have any blind corners. The stage that will extend to the audience will allow those in the 680 yuan and 480 yuan seats to enjoy the view that usually only those in the inner areas would enjoy, because the distance between the stage and seats will not exceed 10 meters."
