Hi there, I'm a member of staff from Grazia.

It is now late autumn, and cold, chilly season. How are you all?

In a week's time (on December 1st), we will be releasing the January 2011 issue of Grazia featuring Tohoshinki's Changmin!

Following the August issue, which featured Yunho, we will be releasing a New Year's edition with Changmin!

The theme - Sexy! All 8 pages of it!

This photo was taken on the set of the photoshoot. The ones last time were a little blurry but this was taken with a proper digital camera.

When I met Yunho last time, I was entranced by his gentleman's charm and deeply touched by the way he was so considerate of others. It seems as though Changmin has it even worse!

Putting aside the figure of a top notch editorial model, the heart warming smile and the strong sex appeal, Changmin's unique personality is perhaps his greatest asset.

Having just landed in Japan, he had a hard time adjusting to speaking Japanese and he apologized profusely to the team, trying as best as he could to convey his thoughts and considerations. As we conversed, Changmin gave me his undivided attention, giving honest, straightforward answers whilst also showing his good sense of humour.

Despite his tight schedule, he was willing to remain on set for a little longer, slipping smoothly from one pose to another so we could get as many shots as possible and present the best of Changmin to our readers.

The article will include stories revolving Changmin's career, his personal life, his plans for the future, and of course, his love life!

Whether you are a Changmin fan or a Tohoshinki fan, or simply a casual reader of Grazia, please look forward to our feature on Changmin!

Yours Truly,
Grazia Editorial Team

Finally SM Entertainment has to release TVXQ comeback with only 2 members namely U-Know Yunho and Choikang Changmin.

It’s been a year since SM Entertainment released the “return” ultimatum to the three members Micky Yoochun, Xiah Junsu, and Youngwoong Jaejoong in last November.

At that time, SM Entertainment released a statement to reporters through a public press conference, “We will start the activities of TVXQ in spring 2010, we’re welcoming them to comeback before then.” After the previous announcement, SM who had been waiting for a year, has to formulated the comeback of TVXQ to consist only 2 members eventually.

The two members will return to music industry with a new album in spring 2011, activities schedule that ranges from Japan, Korea, and all over Asia is expected to unfold. Since TVXQ was highly popular, whether the TVXQ that only consists of 2 members is able to keep the big name of their own group starting to become a hot issue recently.

SM on the 23rd at the official website, “As been implied by the preliminary injunction rule, TVXQ activities should be held under SM. We had proposed to the three members to have activities as TVXQ, unfortunately we keep hearing nothing from them. Therefore in consideration to the long future of the group, we have to make this following decision.” explaining the background of the two members’ comeback.

SM Kim Young Min on November 2nd last year stated the company’s ultimatum in the press conference through an official representative. “The recent condition implies that eventhough the three members are able to determine their individual activities, they’re still only able to work as TVXQ under our company. We have scheduled TVXQ comeback activities in Korea in next spring. Hence to prepare for it the three members have to respond to this proposal by the coming 10 days which is on November 12th.”

U-Know Yunho, Choikang Changmin also revealed their feeling through a written document today, “We will continue to keep the promise with SM. Before the other three members started their cosmetic business, we shared the same dream to be able to comeback together as well. Yet in order to have a comeback in next year’s spring we’re required to prepare for at least 6 months. So if we still want to work as TVXQ, we need to make a decision soon before it’s too late.”

The remaining three members, in the other hand, had formed a new group called JYJ and already started to mark their start by launching their first album ‘The Beginning’. ‘The Beginning’ stands for ‘a brand new start’ and is released in both South Korea and United States through Warner Music. It seems that JYJ has committed for a prolonged activities.

Hello, this is SM Entertainment.

Since a series of events occurred including three members of TVXQ breaking away from the team, we SM Entertainment (noted as SM) have been refraining from having U-Know Yunho and Choikang Changmin participate in music-related activities for a long period of over a year.

For the feelings and dreams of the two members and the company to protect 'TVXQ',
and thinking about the hearts of the fans, who have been showing an unchanging love to TVXQ, we have been waiting for a long time.

As it was stated in the injunction verdict, all TVXQ activities must be done through SM.
Regardless of this fact, the trio have unfortunately continued to be unresponsive to the proposal SM sent them regarding continuing activities as TVXQ.
Therefore, after much thought and consideration, we have made the following decision.

For U-Know Yunho and Choikang Changmin, who have not given up their dream of 'TVXQ',
and who have been unchanging and kept their place,
and to continue the existence of 'TVXQ', a group we have created with much care over such a long period of time,
we have decided to keep preserving 'TVXQ' with the two members.

This is because we made the decision that 'TVXQ' must continue,
no matter what happens,
at least for the love and faith of the countless number of fans who have been helping make TVXQ what it is with us.
But, we will not rule out any possibilities that many appear in the future.

Also, we believe that continuing the existence of 'TVXQ'
is the least we can do to repay all the fans for loving and waiting for 'TVXQ'.

As the people who have been with 'TVXQ' since the group's birth and growth,
We SM will keep preserving 'TVXQ' into the future.
Furthermore, we will not hold back when it comes to effort or support for the 'TVXQ' activities that will soon commence,
We will do everything we can for them.

We ask you for great anticipation and warm support for 'TVXQ', who are finally making a comeback in 2011.

On November 23, SM Entertainment released an official statement announcing that DBSK would return in 2011 with the original two members Changmin and Yunho. A pop-up message on DBSK's official website announced that the three-member team of Junsu, Yoochun, and Jaejoong had decided to go their own way, and SM in turn decided in turn to move on as well. The remaining members Changmin and Yunho had abstained from participating in any musical activities as DBSK because they were waiting for their fellow members to return. SM wished to continue supporting the fans who had waited for DBSK to return. Therefore, DBSK would make their comeback sometime during 2011 with the original two members Changmin and Yunho.

We hope to return to you with a better translation of the statement, so keep checking back for more details.

TVXQ is set to comeback in 2011.

SM Entertainment revealed on the 23rd via TVXQ’s homepage, “2011, TVXQ is returning to you all.”

SM released a statement saying,

“After the 3 TVXQ members left, for over a long year, both U-Know Yunho and Choi Kang Changmin have refrained from musical activities.

The two members as well as the company wanted to keep TVXQ alive, thinking about the never changing hearts of our loyal fans who have waited a long time.

As indicated by the ruling, all of TVXQ’s activities need to be done through SM, unfortunately, the three members that left have regretfully not responded to any of our offers for activities as TVXQ. After long and careful consideration, we made this decision.

For U-know Yunho and Choi Kang Changmin, who never left and kept their dreams as TVXQ, we have decided together with the two members to keep TVXQ alive.

No matter what happens, we believed that TVXQ should be continued for the love and trust of the fans who created TVXQ together with us.

We are not ruling out any possibilities in the future. Continuing TVXQ is the best way to repay the fans who love and waited for TVXQ.”
TVXQ is scheduled to make a comeback in January 2011.
