Jo Jin Kook, the screenwriter for MBC’s “Soulmate”, “Hello, Francesca” , the movie “M” and other shows, wrote on his twitter:

“A few days ago, I heard a song while I was in writer Jung’s car, and it has been stuck in my head since. I personally feel that this attracts me more than the music during their period as TVXQ~ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3sjCLl4iuCw&feature=related%20%E2%80%9D

The Youtube link he included was for JYJ's Mission!

(Narration)
Tohoshiki’s first song for their restart, the look awaited single is; Why? Keep Your Head Down.

His powerful stage presence and perfect vocals earned him the "Male Rookie Award" at the 2010 Musical Awards.

News of Junsu landing the leading role on a Broadway musical came out in December 2010, and with quick progress, an open rehearsal was held in early January 2010. When tickets went on sale, fans went into a frenzy and all tickets were sold out within minutes. After the first show, those in attendance gave Junsu positive reviews and some audience members were even seen crying.

As the lead role in the musical ‘Tears of Heaven’, JYJ member Kim Junsu caused the tickets in the first round to be completely sold out in 3 minutes, showing his immense ticket power.

In addition, MUCHA has created a line of merchandise for fans of ‘Tears of Heaven’, attracting their attention with the launch of the ‘Joon Series’.

In this initial preview of the ‘Joon Series’, the merchandise includes a shoulder bag, handbags, compact mirrors, necklaces, bracelets, as well as keychains. What’s particularly special about this line’s necklace is that the main theme and inspiration came from the main character’s name and it’s combination with the bugle.

TVXQ recently made their Korean comeback with their chart-topping single, “Keep Your Head Down“. The duo has been busily promoting their new album in both Japan and Korea, but they recently made time to stop at a radio show for their fellow SM labelmate, Shindong.

Seizing the opportunity to have some fun with his guests, Shindong encourages them to show off their aegyo. Both Yunho and Changmin played around with their aegyo for a bit, but when Changmin learned that Super Junior’s Kyuhyun was listening to the show, he summoned up all his aegyo power to deliver this ‘KO’ message: ”Kyuhyun-ah, are you listening? I love you.”

Don’t believe it? Check out the video below!
