So, they’re even on French news? Woah, DBSK sure is conquering the world! LOL.

Apart from that, this news article also reveals the upcoming releases of DBSK. I’m pretty excited with the Best Video Clips. I wonder what clips will be included there? :)

“TVXQ at The Top!” French News “Ongaku Dojyo”

While their single “Break out” started the New Year 2010 with honorific sales; the Korean group Tohoshinki,
the top artist of Avex, started this week with the release of their first Best of album.

With more than 200.000 sold copies on the first day, “Break Out” became the top-selling album of the year 2010.
But Tohoshinki don’t stop here, them already announcing the release of another new single, and album and a DVD.

Their new single is called “Toki wo Tomete” and it will be released on March 24th, 2010.
This song is already included in their best of album. “Tokiwo Tomete” accompanies the new product line
from the cosmetic company Menard.

The album will actually be a remix compilation of 20 songs, similar to their “TVXQ Nonstop remix” released in 2007.
Some of their Korean songs may also be included in this album. It will be released on March 24th, 2010.

Kind of like Arashi’s DVD released in 2009, Tohoshinki will release a DVD including a compilation of their video clips,
which is called “Best video clips”. This new DVD’s release date will be March 17th.

I’m actually not familiar with this music station but just the thought of the boys’ song gracing the airwaves in other parts of the world apart from Asia is really exciting so I just felt the NEED to post it. =)

TVXQ on New York’s Hit Music Station, Z100!

The ever-popular Z100 (100.3 FM), which is based in New York City and the nation’s largest radio station, has a special segment on their morning show (Elvis Duran & the Morning Zoo) in which they play short segments of top songs from around the world. Guess who was featured from Japan? None other than TVXQ/DBSK/Tohoshinki and their latest hit, Break Out!

And here’s a screencap of it.

Two days ago, I posted about the Backstreet Boys mentioning DBSK on an email interview they had with the Korean media. Now, here’s an article where DBSK shares a conversation they had with the members of BSB.

TVXQ responds to the Backstreet Boys’ remarks

Yesterday, we got to hear the Backstreet Boys‘ take on TVXQ; today, TVXQ exchanged their side of their encounter with the “living legends” as well.

During a recent program recording at a Japanese broadcasting station, TVXQ recounted their meeting with the Backstreet Boys at an episode of Japanese Fuju TV’s Music Fair 21 last year. “[When they met us,] the Backstreet Boys asked, ‘How long have you guys been performing?’ and we answered, ‘Around six years,’Yoochun revealed.

He continued, “They then asked us, ‘Are you going to perform together for long?’ We replied, ‘We’d like to continue performing together forever. That’s part of the reason why we’re concentrating with our best efforts right now.”

Yunho then added, “The Boys then said, ‘This is interesting … you remind us of our past days,’” presumably referring to the height of the Backstreet Boys’ careers & popularity. The Boys reportedly proceeded to praise TVXQ for their excellent vocal talent.

After the report connecting these two groups was released yesterday, many fans jumped up to defend TVXQ in response to the comparison. However, we must remember that the Backstreet Boys arguably paved the way for the boy band trend worldwide, including groups before TVXQ’s time.

This article is (I think) from a recent Korean news but I’m not sure of the part where DBSK met BSB and Yoochun and Yunho’s account of their conversation was recent as what the article sounds like.

First and foremost, the DBSK members aren’t in Japan right now. They are actually in Korea (at least that’s what I know since no fancams or airport pics came out the past few weeks) so it’s quite impossible for them to have a guesting on a broadcasting program in Japan and mention about their meeting with BSB (unless it’s a phone interview, which I doubt).

Second, it may be true that BSB went to Japan last year but I don’t think it was last year that they were on Music Fair 21 together with DBSK. Check out this video and also this one. Both are the same cuts from Music Fair where BSB and DBSK are both guests but even though the date of upload of the videos are in the year 2009, I believe this wasn’t in 2009. Why? Because from what I remember (you can search it on if you want), BSB visited Japan in the later half of 2009 (September or October) and I don’t remember the boys going on Music Fair during that time. JaeJoong and Yoochun were the only members who appeared on Music Fair for the promotions of their single back in early September and I’m pretty sure BSB wasn’t on that episode. I think DBSK met BSB back in 2007 when they were promoting “Last Angel” with Koda Kumi. So unlike what the article says, it’s definitely not last year that the two groups met.

Third, the “Japanese broadcast” mentioned in the article where Yoochun recounted the conversation they had with BSB was in a radio program called FM Yokohama back in 2007. Yoochun said in the interview that Nick Carter of BSB was the one who asked him about the group. His answer is similar to the one in the article above. I’m just not sure about the one with Yunho. I didn’t check Yunho’s interview from that radio program.

EDIT: Ok, I’m getting confused now. Some people say that this is actually a RECENT interview of the boys and that Yoochun’s answers weren’t from his FM Yokohama interview. It is said that they really made a recording for a Japanese broadcast just recently. I just don’t know what program it is, though. When did they leave for Japan? Why didn’t I see pictures of them in the airport? Hmmm… strange. Anyway, whether this interview of Yoochun and Yunho is really recent or not, we’re going to find that out once a video of them on a Japanese show comes out.
