Woah, DBSK is everywhere in Japan now. Every year-end festival/music show/awards show is attended/will be attended by our boys. Since they are invited to attend such shows, this only shows that hey really are big in Japan right now. They were able to break into the Japanese music industry and make themselves known not as mere Hallyu stars but asrespectable Japanese singers. I’m so proud of them! :D

TVXQ Attending TBS’ Year-End Program For The Third Year

TVXQ will attend Japan’s TBS CDTV Premiere Live for the third year.

Through a message on their official Japanese website, TVXQ has confirmed that it will attend the year-end program on the 31st from 11:45PM to 5AM. They spent their last moments of 2007 and 2008 here as well, so it’s essentially a tradition for the group.

Despite the issues that TVXQ has with SM Entertainment, their Japanese company Avex has a full schedule for them. The quintet will be attending the Japan Record Awards on the 30th and will also be attending NHK’s program on the 31st, which is before the TBS program.

Yay! Congrats to DBSK! They’re really popular in Japan now. I’m so happy! :)

TVXQ Ranks 2nd As ‘Most Successfully Active Celebrities of 2009’ In Japan

5 member group TVXQ, who is currently active in Japan, has been picked as one of the most successfully active celebrities of this year.

TSUTAYA, Japan’s biggest CD-DVD chain store, conducted a survey from November 19th to December 1st asking people who they thought were the ‘Most successfully active celebrities of 2009’ and revealed the results.

According to the results, TVXQ ranked 2nd following Arashi and this proved that the group was extremely popular this year in Japan.

One woman in her 20s who participated in the survey said she picked TVXQ because, “They were extremely successful in their Tokyo Dome concerts and they were very active this year.”

Another woman in her 20s said, “They are participating in Kouhaku Uta Gassen for the 2nd consecutive year.”

(omitted for redundancy)

This ranking was more meaningful as it took into account singers, actors and comedians of 2009.


Fifth place was taken by EXILE who sold 1 million copies the day their new album was released and 7th place was taken by Michael Jackson who passed away in June.
