[ADMIN POST] To Celebrate DBSKnights' 10Million Hits

We have two surprises for you guys~! I already mentioned it at the last Admin Post and have you guys been anticipating since then? Well, we are really thankful for all the support you guys have been giving us and we're finally going to hit 10 million hits despite all the criticisms and bashing T_T

The first surprise is going to take place in January. We're setting up a contest to win a BreakOut CD. We are still planning but please anticipate! We are going to do this contest to support the BreakOut Project.

The second surprise... TADA. We subbed Heaven's Postman. YES. WE DID. WE FINISHED. However, we are still worried with the people's reaction... So please comment if you want to watch Heaven's Postman even if it's LQ. The subs are great as always even if some don't think so :[ (But I worked on it really hard!) If you guys decided no... DBSKnights staff would be the only ones watching it and our subs will come out with the HQ file. (ps. The file won't come out till next year xD)

So, please comment :) Now, I'm gonna watch it alone xD

PS. If everyone said yes, it would be posted obviously... but once we hit 10 million hits.. The release is to celebrate our hits. So once u see that we hit it... anticipate.

YOU GUYS misunderstood! I will release the subs LQ if everyone said yes. We will also release another version once the HD file comes out next year.

Oh, no~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ (I found in your comments)

It seems that Tohoshinki sang Oda-san’s (T/N: Kazumasa Oda. Original singer of the song) “Kotobani Dekinai”.
I wanted to watch it..
I wanted to watch “Bokurano Ongaku”.
I wanted to watch it so much, I want to borrow a video tape from Fuji TV.

Please inform me. Please inform me well in advance. Please inform me on a timely basis about those things.

2009-12-20 17:12:36
Wow~~~~~~~ (I found in your comments)
Thank you for the person who informed me of the youtube address~
I went to watch it.
It was lovely. Tohoshinki’s “Kotobani dekinai”.
I think Oda-san will be delighted, too. They have sung the song so lovely.

By the way, who was playing the piano? Suga-san?
Suga Shikao?
Looking from behind, it was similar to him.

2009-12-20 17:16:12
Their pronunciation of “To”

I love their broken Japanese.
I just love their pronouncing “to” of “Tohoshinki”. It’s so lovely. It makes your heart beat.
I like the way they sing “to” in “Koto~bani♪”.

Thank you very much for your informing of youtube.
It was a 4 minutes experience for a change.
Where did they film that song?
That is a lovely place.
The window was so large, and you could see the Tokyo Tower.
I thought, if it is a restaurant, I would like to go there.
But I think that was a studio.

avex's president Matsuura Masato. His "passion" for music has built up a new era in the music industry.

His first step into the entertainment business industry was his part-time job at a rental CD shop. Speaking of himself at that time, Matsuura said, "Anyhow, at that time, I was inside my dream." During his college years, he encountered dance music. He said it himself, "It was a shocking music experience for me." From that moment, Matsuura's life has made a turn, and he immersed his life into the music industry. Starting off with a small record company, in the 90s, Matsuura's passion has created a new era. With dance music as the main genre, he swept away the music industry. Moreover, during that time, Hamasaki Ayumi was born. What has Matsuura been thinking during those big times?

The program will start off with the unseen scenes of a-nation09 and a close look at Matsuura's daily life. Beside Matsuura Masato, we will also look back at the interviews with artists whom he has raised and the numerous hit songs that he has produced. And by watching that and following the miracles that he has created, we will able to have a look into a man who has created a revolution in the music industry.

We also conducted a special talk with Gentosha Pubisher's president and looked for other sources that we could on Matsuura Masato, to make sure that we will be able to draw the complete picture of a legend who has become the frontier of the entertainment industry that has captured the hearts of young people.

Nobody knows the lyrics for sure yet, these are just a good guess.
For instance, "I keep break the heart and baby, we keep the faith eternally" could be "I keep praying. Don't forget it. Baby, we keep faith eternally!"

[NEWS] 091219 JJ phone call in Love Faith; born to be TVXQ Event



Love Faith; born to be TVXQ Event,

The event took place at IT Square , Bangkok Thailand around 10:00 – 18:00

The event organizer called Jaejoong’s sister and out of the blue it’s Jaejoong on the phone.

I can only translate the comment

Comment 1 “when we 1st heard Jaejoong voice, All cassiess did scream like crazy. We told him we are all gonna fly to Jaejoong. And He said PLEASE COME.

The organizer asked how’s he doing. JJ said he’s doing fine and happy.”

Comment 2 “We said we love you. Jaejoong said I love you too”

(t/n: We’re verifying this news and we’ll find the vid for u)

Don't forget I'm monitoring the comments.


During the phine-in to Sook Jin Unnie (Jaejoong’s 4th sister) I never thought I’d hear Jaejoong’s voice on the phone XDDDDDDD

Many Thai Cassie must have seen from the schedule that Sook Jin Unnie would record Jaejoong’s voice for us but it’s not! It’s real Jaejoongon the phone!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was holding hand with my sister thinking “are we dreaming or what”

It’s not the record. It’s the real Jaejoong LIVE on the phone for Thai Cassies

I wanna die and reborn and die for many many times. I was out of my mind while he’s on the phone.

I can only remember a few conversation

The translator “Thai Cassie will take the whole plane and fly to Korea (to fight against SM? – - this part i am not sure) for Jaejoong”

and Jaejoong said “OK I got it”

At one part we all yelled out “Jaejoong Oppa Saranghaeyo” for at least 3 times.

The translator asked Jaejoong “Do you love us”
Jaejoong said “YES”

[T/N she gave more cute comments of Jaejoong's voice on the phone like it's different than how we hear him via the microphone cuz it's a phone and the speaker that makes him sound a bit different]

After that many Cassie started to cry because of the happiness

They tried to call Yoochun’s mom but she’s not at the shop and also Junsu’s dad.

Regarding Junsu's Solo Song to Become the Coupling Song of the New Single

I heard from the staffs that they have been receiving different opinions regarding the fact that Junsu's solo is going to become the coupling song of the new single.

This is something that has been decided in the beginning of the year, as a part of Tohoshinki's solo project.

In Japan, Jaejoong and Yoochun released their own single, and in Korea, Jaejoong and Yunho both took part in their own dramas.

And now Changmin is also going to act in his own drama. These are all parts of the solo project.

At first, avex and SM were thinking of having solo projects that are suitable to each member's own special ability.

Of course, we are also under consideration to release Yunho's solo song, so please do not worry about that.

I really don't see anything wrong with Xiahtic although, I do admit I want another new song.


I disabled the comments due to the bashing of the other members. If you guys can't stop complaining and bashing other members, we will shut down the comments. DBSKnights is a TVXQ blog so we don't allow any insults to any TVXQ members. You think you're helping them with complaining to get more solo projects and insulting other members? You are not! You're hurting them. I now can see who are the real TVXQ fans and who are not. This is so disappointing. What happened to the "Always Keep the Faith in you guys?
