TVXQ's Yunho and Changmin will be making their Inkigayo comeback tonight and it looks like BoA has shown up to support her juniors! BoA tweeted "Totally handsome TVXQ! Yeonhee who came to support! We are waiting...Yunho said this hehehe". They will be performing "How Can I", "Maximum", and "Why (Keep Your Head Down)".
The coach of Hwaseung, a Starcraft pro-gaming team, recently uploaded two new pictures and praised Junsu's soccer skills. Han Sangyong tweeted "I played soccer with the MBC game team. The opposing team was the 'celebrity' soccer team, MEN. Afterwards we ate and took pictures together". He also said "Xiah Junsu and Lee Wan are very good at soccer. Because there were professional soccer players present, we lost. We must have a rematch!"
Following Super Junior's Eunkyuk support for TVXQ, (U-Know Yunho and Choikang Changmin), other SM artists have started to show their love for TVXQ as well.
On January 8 at MBC 'Show! Music Core', SHINee and Jay from Trax visited them in the standby room MBC Dream Center, showing their warm friendship between each other. An SM representative told Newsen that "SHINee and Jay were unfortunately unable to attend yesterday's comeback stage because of their schedules, but were able to make it to today's 'Music Core' standby room to support TVXQ."
On another note, TVXQ will once again present an energetically charged stage on the 9th on SBS 'Inkigayo' with their title track 'Why (Keep Your Head Down)'.

Amidst the recent controversy over Junsu's tweets, a friend of the trio JYJ has stepped forward to defend Junsu. John Egg, also known as elbowyeish on Twitter, posted the lyrics to "Fallen Leaves" on his Facebook recently. He explained in a tweet that the song was written by Junsu for Cassies and the two remaining members of DBSK. It was because of this dedication that he was so "devastated by the lyrics to [Keep Your Head Down]."
Be sure to read John Egg's message: “This is Junsu’s heart not for a girl he loves… but it was written for you fans (Cassies) and the other 2 members (Homin). This was why he was so devastated by the lyrics to KYHD. Please stop bashing Junsu. He is a sweet angel from heaven…. He only deserves our love and support. Let’s always stay by his side so he can stand on a grand stage to sing this song for us again with a HUGE smile and joy in his heart. We love you Junsu! We’ll always stand by you no matter what… because we know who you really are… we know your true heart… we know your character… that’s who we all fell in love with… and nothing will ever change that.
"This line, “빛의 별들의 향연 the brightness of the star’s lights” is referring to Cassies… the stars in the sky… Cassiopeia shining bright… but where is that bright light now? It’s being stifled by bitter fighting and hate. Please let the li…ght shine brightly again. Please be proud stars in the sky. Please show not only JYJ or Homin but to the rest of the world… that Cassies are a proud fanclub… Cassies show love and not hate. Cassies forgive and do not point fingers… Cassies always stand by the boys… because love never changes.
"One day, I was with Junsu… he shared a song with me in the car that he’d written. It was still unfinished and we heard it through his phone… It only had the music with no lyrics yet… I asked him where the lyrics were… he smiled and …started sharing the lyrics with me… he started talking about how most people would interpret this song as love between a man and a woman. But he said his intentions were written that this song is between him (JYJ) and the fans (Cassies). He also said it was towards Homin. He looks forward to standing on the same stage with them someday. Until then, he’ll just wait and love. Junsu’s last 2 tweets after all this happened were the lyrics to this song. He was very emotional that day thinking about the DBSK days as 5. Can you imagine how he’s feeling now? People have totally misunderstood his heart and made him a liar and betrayer. Junsu is so innocent. You can see and hear his pure heart in this song. Remember, this song was written BEFORE all this chaos started. Please… don’t spread and increase the hate. Cassies must stay united. Cassies must stay strong for their boys. Don’t let something that took 7 years to build crumble overnight.”
The lyrics John Egg posted to "Fallen Leaves": 바람이 분다 the wind is blowing 노을이지고 a glowing of the sky 운명이 우릴 fate has us 멀게만 해도 even if it’s a distance away 시간 흐르고 the time passes 지나간 자리 길다 the spaces that passes by is long 사랑인가봐 it seems to be love 그리움인가봐 it seems to be longing 네 미소가 your smile 내 안에 물든다 has captivated me 꽃이 진 후에 after the flowers have fallen 우리는 다시 시작 we will start all over again 낙엽 위를 걸으면 if we walk on the fallen leaves 함께만 있자며 while we’re together 내마음 삼킨 그대 the lady who took my heart 영원을 약속할게 I promise eternally 눈이 부시게 shimmering to the eyes 아름다운 꿈에 in the beautiful dream 시련이 다가오나봐 seems like an ordeal has come 어둠이 가고 gone the darkness 새벽이 오면 come the morning 어느새 그기억에 머문다 remain in the memory unaware 오직 널 향한 always towards you 내마음 이슬에 맺힌다 my heart fills with tears 낙엽 위를 걸으면 if we walk on the fallen leaves 함께만 있자며 while we’re together 내마음 삼킨 그대 the lady who took my heart 영원을 약속할게 I promise eternally 눈이 부시게 shimmering to the eyes 아름다운 꿈에 in the beautiful dream 시련이 다가오나봐 seems like an ordeal has come 같은하늘아래서 under the same sky 같은꿈을꾸는 we dream of the same dream 빛의 별들의 향연 the brightness of the star’s lights’ 그 축제에 내 몸을 실어 this occasion captivated me 언젠가 다시 부를 노래 a song that will be sang someday 그날이 찾아오겠지 that day will come for sure 사랑한다 말할게 i will say I love you 온몸을 다해서 with all my heart-felt feelings 옛순간의 떨림을 the fear of the past 영원히간직할게 i will cherish it eternally 현실에 가려 going towards the reality 널볼수없어도 even if I can’t see you 다시널 찾을테니까 I will come back for you 사랑인가봐 seems like it’s love 그리움인가봐 seems like it’s longing 네 미소가 your smile 내 안에 물든다 has captivated me 꽃이 진후에 우리는 after the flowers have fallen, we~ 다시 시작 start over again 다시 시작 start over again 다시 시작 start over again
Here is a video performance of Junsu singing "Fallen Leaves."
"All this time I've had a critical attitude towards pop idol culture. In full honesty I look down on the Korean music industry that leans too heavily on idols, so I've never thought of writing songs for idols either. This side of me met Jaejoong and Junsu last October autumn when I wrote the OST for SungKyunKwan Scandal. On the day that I worked with them on the recordings, it was the most impressionable day in the 10 years that I have produced so many varieties of music. Were the stubborn prejudices that I had had for so long wrong? Was I the ignorant person? If you look from the results, the two gave their best performance and sentiments in the limited amount of time they were given. They both have unique vocals, which allowed me to know about their individualistic characteristics. These things form from hard work and experience. For singers, it is the most incomprehensible and hardest to resolve - like fate. After they finished recording, I exclaimed how such a deformed idol-based Korean music industry could create such perfect idols. This is definitely not flattery or sweet-talk."

While there’s been a lot of buzz over TVXQ’s official comeback this week, representatives from within the music industry have also praised the duo for their impeccable manners and humility.
TVXQ completed their second comeback stage through MBC’s “Show! Music Core” on January 8th, and reportedly visited all the waiting rooms with autographed CDs in hand for the other singers.
Considering how they’ve been in the industry for seven years, this distinguishes them as ’seniors’ to most of the participants of the show. However, representatives were shocked at how they personally made a visit to each waiting room and made an effort to greet and reach out to everyone first.
One representative commented, “TVXQ suddenly came into our waiting room and greeted us, so I was very surprised. Their gazes weren’t one of arrogance, but full of genuineness.” One girl group member, who asked to remain anonymous, spoke with a reporter from Sports Today and commented, “The TVXQ seniors visited all of their juniors’ waiting rooms and greeted them. It was surprising, but also amazing. They’re seniors that I want to learn from.”
A lot of juniors were said to have been impressed by the act of respect the duo showed, instead of the haughtiness one would expect from people of their stature.
The boys of TVXQ have been quite busy with their comeback promotions. The duo took a break from their busy schedules to sit down with "Entertainment Relay" to answer many questions the fans have been asking.
During the midst of the current controversy, TVXQ remained professional and revealed the true meaning behind the song "Why (Keep Your Head Down)". The song is about a "man's strong determination to overcome a breakup." The boys laughingly joked around as well, as Changmin explained that in addition their new strong masculine image, they wear heavy necklaces too.
TVXQ has already made their comeback on KBS's Music Bank and MBC's Music Core. They have not only demonstrated their strong dancing ability with their latest single "Why (Keep Your Head Down)", but also have proved that they have what it takes in vocal ability with "How Can I" against a now tougher K-Pop competition.
2 years and 2 months is a long time for these guys to be away from the Korean stage, so be sure to check out their latest interview below as they express their feelings of gratitude to the fans for their patience.
The trio of JYJ has been chosen to be the honorary ambassadors for ‘FLL Korea‘.
‘FLL Korea’ is a cultural festival that brings in participants from elementary school up to high school for a robotics competition. Scheduled for January 29th at the Ilsan KINTEX, the event was a collaboration between the ‘First Scholarship Fund’ and ‘FEST’. The organization aims to promote STEM training with professors specializing in engineering and science.
FLL Korea’s organizing committee commented, “We decided that JYJ’s passion and teamwork fit well with the concept of the competition. Their album has also ranked in the top five on the Billboard and have been attracting much interest in the U.S. They will work well as models to our global competition.”
The theme for FLL Korea this year is “Body Forward,” and 5-10 teams from Korea will be chosen to compete worldwide.
