[TRANS] 120130 Tohoshinki’s Yokohama Arena Live – Huge Popularity, Even “Restricted View Seats” At 8,500 Yen Sold Out Immediately
“Ever since restarting their activities in January last year, we have always wanted to do their own solo live tour. We wanted to show our thankful feelings to those who gave us their support even when we couldn’t do activities as Tohoshinki, so we worked really hard in preparation for this tour.”
On 18-19 January, Tohoshinki started their largest tour in Tohoshinki history, the “Tohoshinki Live Tour 2012 ~TONE~”. With 24 performances at 11 location, it is expected to attract a total audience of 450,000 people.
It has been 3 years since their last solo tour. For Yunho (25) and Changmin (23) , this is the first time they are doing a tour as two. And Yunho spoke about these thoughts during the opening MC.
The location was covered in red penlights, from the seats in the stands that extended to the ceiling.
“Tickets this time were hard to obtain, even for fanclub members. Although a ballot was held after submitting their entries, they mostly couldn’t get tickets (weak laugh). Eventually, just before the concerts, not only “standing seats” but also “restricted view” and “restricted experience” seats were sold.”
Often unheard of, avex explains what these “restricted view seats” (8,500 yen) and “restricted experience seats” (8,000 yen) are, on their website, explicitly stating that they are “Seats where members cannot be seen during the performance and videos, and ‘restricted experience seats’ are seats at the ends of the stage, where there is a high chance that you cannot see videos as well as the main stage performances.”
However, this was still great news for fans who “want to see the movements of the two people,” and those seats were completely sold out as well.
Ms A, (45 years old, housewife) who was actually sitting at the restricted view seat, testified that, “Although there were stage equipment placed nearly, but actually compared to those at the back of the arena, and those at the 2nd and 3rd levels of the stands, I think we probably had a better view. I don’t really know why such good seats were considered as restricted view seats.” Also, Ms B (48 years old, office worker) who sat at the “restricted experience seats” said, “For the performance at the hanamichi (t/n: the part of the stage that extends into the audiences’ seats) and the main stage, I could only see the backs of Yunho and Changmin. But as the two members walked in and out from the ends of the stage very often, the view then was so clear that we could even see the sweat on their faces. “ (Josei Seven, 9 February Issue)
[Trans] 111201 This Year’s Results Slip Of The Two Groups After TVXQ Split
After the split of two major boy bands TVXQ and SS501, which were formed in the first half of first decade of the 21st century, they have started events officially this year. Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun and Kim Junsu, who were members of TVXQ, left their previous agency SM Entertainment, after filing a lawsuit regarding their personal contracts, and have been active in the industry under the name of JYJ.
Alhough the 5 members are not able to attend activities together currently, this year is the crucial period for them to display their personal capabilities. They have been able to cause a big influence in the local music industry, and their current and future events would cause a greater influence overseas.
U-Know Yunho and Choi Kang Changmin, who had a different thinking from the 3 members of JYJ, remained in SM Entertainment, and have started activities as a duo since January this year. After 2 years and 3 months, although TVXQ remains active with only two members after the split, they have not disappointed fans with the energy recouped during that period.
Their fifth album “WHY (Keep Your Head Down” which was released earlier on 5 January, clinched top rankings in many major music websites and local music programs, proving their undying popularity. In Japan, their popularity was even greater. They broke the 130,000 sales record within a day after releasing their Japanese single “WHY”with their overwhelming popularity, and clinched 1st place in the Oricon Charts on the current and following day. They broke their 170,000 sales record within 2 days, displaying their outstanding capabilities.
In September, TVXQ released their Japanese album “TONE”, once again clinching the 1st place of Japanese charts on the day of release, garnering great album sales which amounted to 105,484 copies.
In comparison, JYJ had restrictions in performing on broadcasts, and mainly met fans through world tour concerts. However, they were just as outstanding as the TVXQ duo. After releasing their Worldwide album “The Beginning” last October, they have been active in world tours since April.
JYJ has had concerts in a total of 13 countries and cities, performing to over 200,000 audiences. They started their world tour from Thailand, Taiwan and Beijing, then moving on to North America, Japan, and ended their world tour in Busan and Gwangju. They started entering the Europe market, performing their solo concerts in Spain Barcelona and Germany Berlin, after releasing their first Korean album “In Heaven”, which garnered over 300,000 preorders.
JYJ’s agency representatives expressed, “With their soaring popularity overseas, JYJ would continue to have a world tour next year. They would be having activities in Asia, and even in the North America.”

[TRANS] 111124 Tohoshinki’s Song To Be Used As Ending Track For Changmin’s First Drama
It has been revealed that Korea’s two-member group Tohoshinki will have their song featured as the ending track for “Paradise Ranch,” which stars Changmin from the same group, aired on Fuji TV’s Korean drama slot “Hanryu α.”
(Story synopsis omitted)
The song to be used as the ending track is “Duet,” which is recorded in their new album “TONE.” This song has a flowing melody, and is characterized by Changmin and Yunho’s beautiful harmonization.
With regards to the song, the two men said in a message that, “As this is a song about bonding, it suits the way the love story between the lead couple progresses and grows.” Also, the song will be played during Changmin’s offshot movie, so fans, do remember not to miss it!
This is the 「TONE」Buyers’ Event that was held on 1 & 3 November in Osaka and Tokyo. There were live performances, member talks, as well as secret videos, it was an hour packed with lots (of activities)♪ It was an event where you could feel really close to the two members, so it was really enjoyable!
The Tohoshinki album “TONE” release event was held in Tokyo and Osaka on 1 & 3 November.
For this event, nearly 200,000 applications were received, and among them 15,200 people were gathered at the location. This event was approximately 1 hour long, and included the members’ talk as well as song performances.
Yunho and Changmin talked about the secret story behind the album release, and also about the shoot for the recently released photobook “El Sol.” With such a special talk, the fans’ eyes sparkled involuntarily as they smiled. They could feel the members’ thoughts that were not communicated in magazines and television programs, and this was probably very satisfying.
Furthermore, questions for Tohoshinki that were gathered from the public, and a corner with things that the fanclub wanted Tohoshinki to do were held at the event, and fans definitely caught a glimpse of a new honest side to the members.
For the live performance, 「B.U.T（BE-AU-TY）」, 「Duet」, 「I Don’t Know」 were the numbers performed, that excited the crowd. Also, this time, the album version of 「Duet」 to be released in the single on 30 November was revealed for the first time, moving the participants to tears. At the end, they announced that there will be additional performances for their nationwide tour that starts in January 2012. Tohoshinki’s tour will see 20 performances held at 9 locations, gathering an expected crowd of 250,000 people.

[Trans] “I Love JK” TVXQ’s Interview on TONE while they were in Beijing
credit: Get Beginning
Host: From the start, let’s introduce TVXQ and this is their latest Japanese album. This album reaches 200 thousand sales during the first week of release and attained the first place on the charts. This is the first album for Yunho and Changmin and the results through the release of this album gave the duo a confidence boost. Yes, that’s right. For this album, there are unique designs within the album packagings. I’m going to introduce to everyone in today’s programme and what are the unique designs? These are the 3 versions of the albums that were not released in Taiwan. Red, Blue and Yellow. When we placed the three together, we’ll get something amazing. What’s that? See, right here. What is written there? “It Is My Way.” It can only be seen when you piled them together. It’s quite a special design. There’s a card inside the album too which I’ll introduce to you all later. Let’s now take a look when they arrived in Beijing and though their stay was not that long, we managed to arrange an interview from them. We really did our best to get this interview and though the (interview) was short, please support us and now let’s take a look at the interview.
TVXQ: Hello, we are TVXQ (in Chinese)
YH: Hi, I’m Yunho. (in Chinese)
CM: Hi, I’m Changmin. (in Chinese)
About new album
YH:First of all, we released an album in Korea after a long while. Therefore we had a chance to meet with Japanese fans. This album was prepared with great work and we anticipate fans’ responses. We involved a lot of our feelings in this album and were done with a heart of thankfulness. Thus we hoped that fans will be able to hear our improvement while listening to this album.
Japanese album released in Taiwan
CM:For this album.. This album is named TONE. There are various meaning to it, eg. sound, color etc. When we first heard of this title and knew of the various meaning when used differently. As an singer, if we are able to control the various tone, it should be the best joy, isn’t it? To name this album as TONE, and in this album, other than the ballads and dance numbers we are used to, we tried something that’s similar to a fast tempo band-type and club music etc. As we tried various music genres, it is an album that’s worth everyone’s attention.
About the good sales results of the Japanese album
YH: Firstly, we want to thank everyone and other than loving TVXQ, we enjoy our work and would like to close up the distance between our fans and us. Hopefully everyone will listen to our songs and we will become an even more hardworking TVXQ.
About TONE’s train
CM: When we heard about this, we felt that it’s very novel. When I saw the photos on the net, I really wish to go there and take a commemorative photo myself. However due to some problems and time issue, I wasn’t able to do it. If I had the chance, I would like to take a ride on that train.
Any plans for performances in Taiwan?
YH: To be honest, there’s no confirmed plan as of now. But next year, there’s a plan for Asia Tour and it’s still under discussion. We’ll let Taiwanese fans know if it’s confirmed. Maybe in the near future, the good news will arrive.
TVXQ: You are currently watching, I Love JK. (in chinese)
Host: This interview was done in Beijing recently where TVXQ went for a fan meeting and we managed to get an interview for everyone. Hopefully everyone enjoyed it. Let’s continue to introduce the album. There’s a card inside each album and let’s see what we’ve got. It’s about the size of the album and this is Yunho and Changmin’s. Next, this is also a duo photo. Next we had Changmin’s solo photo, Changmin’s again, then Yunho’s, Yunho’s and duo photo. This is their card in the album and now let’s introduce a song from this album, B.U.T.
