[NEWS] 120124 Possibility of TVXQ reunion through Avex?

Recent news on the possibility of TVXQ‘s reunion is sending shockwaves throughout the industry.

On January 22nd, a Japanese article titled, “Will Avex act as the savior? TVXQ’s reunion project” surfaced. It reported of rumors of a reunion concert at Tokyo Dome orchestrated by Avex, who was previously accused of hindering JYJ‘s Japanese activities. In light of Avex’s recent under-performing releases, it is said that they are willing to go head with this project and stop hindering JYJ’s Japanese activities. Japanese superstar Ayumi Hamasaki is rumored to be negotiating on behalf of both sides.

While the news of a possible reunion is being met with enthusiasm by fans all over the world, many are skeptical of the chances of such a reunion actually occurring. The fact that this reunion is being orchestrated by Avex instead of SM Entertainment is also a cause of skepticism.

The article goes on to state, “While the reunion of TVXQ is something that many fans are waiting, the small possibility of this actually happening is an indicator of Avex’s desperation,” hinting that Avex’s recent lack of success may be reason for pursuing such a unlikely project.

TVXQ fans responded to the news with, “While it would be great if reunion happens, it seems unlikely“, “They say Avex will lead the project but I can’t trust them“, and “I hope they stop writing these pointless reunion articles“.

[TRANS] 120123 Park Yoochun Shouts “Kiss Me” Out Loud…

The Ottogi GisMyun CF, which JYJ’s Park Yoochun appeared in as the CF model, achieved 1st place last month for advertising effectiveness.

According to Korea CM Strategic Studies Institute, GisMyun’s recorded a CPCM (cost per consumer mind) of 253 won last month. CPCM is a value projected by consolidating aspects such as the feedback of customers to the CF, advertising costs etc, and is one of the criteria in determining advertising effectiveness. The overall average CPSM for last month was 1621 won.

The GisMyun CF makes a pun on the words “Gis” and “Kiss”, and moves female hearts through JYJ’s Park Yoochun. Ottogi GisMyun is called “Kiss Myun” in English, and this special point and others are also featured in the CF.

(The CF) left a deep impression in the minds of consumers by using the lyrics of “Kiss Me Darling”, which is well-known, as the background music, then (changing the lyrics) to “GisMyun Darling”, which is similar in pronunciation. Coupled with the gentle image of the CF model, managed to garner good responses. This CF was ranked 1st place for CF effectiveness among the top 30. (T/N: the original article had this mistyped as 3rd place)

[TRANS] 120119 “Missha To Release New CF In Spring” – CEO Seo Yeong Pil

Today, we had the presentation for the CF which TVXQ will be appearing in. The cover photo and video…I am personally very satisfied with it. It’s like a movie… and seems like it will be able to present the image of the two celebrities well. Filming should be able to commence once the schedule is confirmed (I guess).

This product is prepared based on the experience that Missha has gathered over this period of time, and is a product that would have a competitive edge in the global market. But I think having a stable foothold in the local industry is the first step towards the global market. Because only when you are able to stand firmly in the local market, can you stand firmly in the overseas markets ke ke.

This is why (we are) thinking of holding large-scale preview screenings. Matters pertaining to this are also being negotiated…I hope that (we will) come to a good conclusion…and we plan to release the information on the Missha homepage at a later date.

For the fans who love TVXQ, please wait for warm spring when flowers bloom. You will see the best CF that no one in Korea has imagined…or even tried^^. (Why? Perhaps it’s because they do not have TVXQ)

ps) Since we’re making such big promises, we’ll do our very best~~
