5 member group TVXQ, who is currently active in Japan, has been picked as one of the most successfully active celebrities of this year.

TSUTAYA, Japan's biggest CD-DVD chain store, conducted a survey from November 19th to December 1st asking people who they thought were the 'Most successfully active celebrities of 2009' and revealed the results.

According to the results, TVXQ ranked 2nd following Arashi and this proved that the group was extremely popular this year in Japan.

One woman in her 20s who participated in the survey said she picked TVXQ because, "They were extremely succesful in their Tokyo Dome concerts and they were very active this year."

Another woman in her 20s said, "They are participating in Kouhaku Uta Gassen for the 2nd consecutive year."

(omitted for redundancy)

This ranking was more meaningful as it took into account singers, actors and comedians of 2009.


Fifth place was taken by EXILE who sold 1 million copies the day their new album was released and 7th place was taken by Michael Jackson who passed away in June.

Q5: There were difficult and hard scenes from the start as falling into the river or soaking wet in rain. What was your impressive filming scene?

A: I’m not making lies, but all the scenes were impressive. There were many hardships and adversities, especially when I fell down from someplace, or experienced getting hurt. I fell down into the 5m depth of Hangang river, it was the first experience in my life. I thought for the first time in my life, "Oh~~~~~~~ I may really die if I make a mistake."
And that was the start for me to feel that I should love and take care of myself, and it was a fresh feeling. There were other scenes as hovering between life and death in a hospital, and since I have never experienced them, I was troubled how to express them. Going through those experiences, they became a part of my own life. Though I expressed them as my performance, those good experiences became a part of Jung Yunho and my life.

TVXQ Changmin in Legal Dispute? "Entertainment Tonight Caption Mistake, a Frowning Error

KBS 2TV ‘Entertainment Tonight’ made a caption mistake.

Broadcast on December 26th, ‘Entertainment Tonight’ featured Year-end special questionnaire to select stars of “Top News Maker in Year 2009″.

The members of TVXQ who are currently in legal dispute with their label SM Entertainment were selected by votes as the Top 4 of 2009 News Maker. During the vote process, ‘Entertainment Tonight’ put a caption “Junsu, Changmin, and Yoochun are facing lawsuit against their label company” in introducing the case.

As the problem is, TVXQ members who are actually in lawsuit against SM are Micky Yoochun, Xiah Junsu, and Hero Jaejoong. While Choikang Changmin and U-Know Yunho are the rest members who remain in position with SM. This caption mistake is not a problem that can easily be ignored. Moreover, the news wrote ‘Micky Yoochun’ (‘믹’키유천) as ‘Meiky Yoochun’ (‘미’키유천).

TVXQ fans demanded a correction from ‘Entertainment Tonight’ regarding these mistakes. “If it’s me who get it wrong, it may be okay. But how can you have this kind of mistake?” “Names are sensitive issue in this case, and you get it wrong… it’s ridiculous.” “Just quick correct it and make an apology to TVXQ and their fans.” as the fans accused.
