Sm and SBS Presents: DBSK + Super Junior Untold Story = Hoax?

Earlier News spread of a new SBS special featuring famous idol bands Super Junior and DBSK. The show was said to reveal the real story behind their boys' lives from early struggles to fame. Just the advertisement of the news on fansites alone caused huge stir in the K-Pop world.

However, now a new claim emerges from netizens as well as fans of both DBSK and Super Junior.
Some claimed the show is nothing more than a hoax created by a random netizen who wanted to toy with fans' emotions.

one fan wrote:
The TV show on SBS about SM artists… it’s a hoax. IF there were to be a show such as the one they were talking about, there would have been press releases in the media AND it would be on cable, not network TV (most older people who watch network TV couldn’t care less about the lifestory of any idol stars). Besides, no show EVER guarantees that a show will air for 20+ weeks, not even on cable and definitely not on network TV.


Along with accusing the show to be fake, some netizens also claimed the story revealed about DBSK Yuhno Uknow was also fake. They believed that even if the show really does aired the stores in the show will be fake.

While the two sides debate over whether or not the show is real or fake. SBS and SM still have not yet spoken up directly.

Rumours Confirmed: Music Station refuses to accept Tohoshinki/DBSK as guests

I wanted to bring to your attention a post by S-San (one of the staff members of Tohoshinki) who made a recent post in his blog confirming the rumours about Music Station's refusal to invite DBSK into their program.

Many fans have been speculating for quite some time the reason why DBSK never appeared on the show, especially with the recent #1 on weekly Oricon (their third one, which broke a record as foreign artist with three #1s). DBSK has been consistently in the top 10 weekly in Japanese Oricon charts with their singles and last album. Music Station usually invites singers in top 10 in Oricon atleast once to perform. However, this has not been the case with DBSK, as S-San points out even with the insistence of the company to let them on fairly.

Their lack of promotions in such a major show as Music Station has become jarringly apparent and discussion spring up everytime they release a single as to why they are still not invited. Majority say that its because of Johnny's Entertainment stronghold on Music Station, pointing out that no bands/artists that posed a threat to that agency have ever been invited.

S-San never expicitly states the show's name, however he mentions that Tohoshinki was on the show's #1 list this week, yet still weren't given the chance to perform.

The post also explains the lack of sales of the group, owing to the fact that they are still placed in Foreign Artist category in music stores even though they should be under Jpop! Fans who recently visited Japan confirmed this. They all found it quite hard to find Tohoshinki's CDs in stores, sometimes they were not there at all. Many times, they were put under K-pop or foriegn artists section. So this really explains why sales get poor after promotions stop ... their CDs aren't in visible places for someone just browsing the jpop section can pick up and see.

I was wondering how S-San posted about this sticky topic, knowing how hush-hush Japan usually is about these matters. He sounds frustrated, and is probably making his last desperate attempt to try to change the situation - by letting fans know what we all sort of feared existed behind the scenes (of the group not exactly getting equal oppotunity), isn't going away anytime soon. And it seems like their staff is trying everything in their power to improve things for the boys. But S-San urges fan and says that "...the store's customers will have the most impact" and that fans in Japan must speak up to store managers about DBSK's CDs being put under "Foreign Artist" section instead of where they rightfully should be - under JPOP.

The whole situation is quite sad. Seeing them all work so extremely hard (including their awesome staff) in a foreign industry, trying to improve their Japanese, travelling back and forth one city/country to another for promotions, bascially doing all they can...yet still be treated as the underdogs. Now I know why they felt so disheartened earlier when they mentioned they almost gave up on Japan in their 2008 Korean interviews.


Brief Summary:
He hasn't written in a while. It's been really hot in Japan and he's been thinking about various things when working.
The boys wonderfully reached #1 in the weekly singles chart with the fans' strong support.
Also the members are really happy, and their self-confidence has been boosted.

The TV-promotion continues busy this week. They're being in more shows than ever before this time, they're for the first time in 「THE M」 and 「CDTV」.
The in-brackets -part I think hints to Kouhaku Utagassen (the traditional men vs. women -"contest" that sums up the whole Japanese music year).

T/N: I translated this part sentence-for-sentence because I think this is what interests people:

There's a certain really popular program where the boys haven't been able to appear since they've [the program] been rejecting any interest the [Avex] promotion-team's been showing that way.
The promoter in charge has been fighting hard and will keep trying.
The boys have reached #1 in this program's ranking, but when it comes to the offer about guesting in the show and a performance...
Even after three weekly #1s, there's nothing from that direction (a sniffing emoticon here).
There hasn't really been any kind of an explanation offered about the issue either, but the team will keep working hard for an appearance in that show!

But if it continues like this and the inquiries keep coming from the viewers as well, how can a music program explain this kind of behaviour?

T/N: Here we go for the record store -issue:
Of course the promotion-team is striving for the best possible set-up in the stores (but obviously, so are all of the other artists' promotors as well).
It depends on every store (chain) where they put the releases; and some of the stores have the Toho-boys in the "Foreign acts" -section instead of "Jpop".
The store's bought the CDs so naturally they can advertise it how they want to and how they think it will sell the best.

They've been trying to have some type of an agreement on this, but especially now when they changed the release date for "Kimisuki" in such a short notice, it became even harder to get the majority of the shops to put the single in the Jpop-section instead of Foreign acts.
It's better when you have time to talk to the stores way before the release and assure things, because all the things are mostly decided abour 6 months before the release already. So a date-change doesn't make things easier at all.
So they had to cancel the space reserved for the CDs in the stores for the original release week, and ask for another setting for the new week.
Of course that messes up the stores' plans and they have to be quick and get a Plan B up. And most of them decided to give the maximum exposure by putting Kimisuki in the foreign-shelves.
-more stuff about the Jpop- and world-corners in the shops-
Tohoshinki will continue releasing Jpop (with good results).

They hope that the fans will understand the managing team and the stores' policies. The team will keep working and he believes that the sales will do well during the next few weeks.

He apologizes for the long entry, but thinks that it will be useful for the people interested in the music industry in general.

I don't and will never expect to see them in Music Station...I won't, I understand that...I know where MS is coming from and where Johnny Kitagawa is coming from...but this whole entry just really wants me to...ah...I haven't been watching any shows that JE's are in...I've been mad ever since the release and MS showed that they're num 1 and they don't invite them...I love our boys more than Kame and Ryo...I want to see them in MS but I think it's good enough to see them in Hey!3x and Music Japan....but seriously, if its battle of the bands around Asia, DBSK will win....cut the JE crap when they can't even sing and dance!...
It's just sad though...
but the last time I came there, one of the major music stores in Shibuya has DBSK's "Purple Line" single with its own spot and they have DBSK posters...
but I wish this will turn out good...the boys bowed down their heads even if they are on the top just to reach out to the Japanese Music Industry, I hope they appreciate that at least...
and a one on one with Johnnies would be great...just height...they're taller...ahaha
Let's just support them, shall we? It would be hard but we won't leave them, right?

i used to like JE groups until i discovered DBSK........lol after i found about them i haven't even looked or listen to many JE groups because DBSK beats them all, their songs are way better and i love their personalities........it's so sad to hear about this and how they treat "foreign" artists. even though they are Korean the CDs shouldn't be under KPop.if they wanted it to be under Kpop they would have sung in Korean,why would they try so hard to learn Japanese and sing in Japanese?.....why can't they just recognize each artist talents? it doesn't matter if your Korean, Japanese, Chinese or any other country i thought music had no boundaries.......ahhh this is really frustrating me specially knowing how hard they all worked...........

P.S my anger is ONLY directed at Music station and part of JE *cough* *cough* Johnny Kitagawa *cough*

I still like JE groups but then DBSK is different...DBSK has TALENTS...while JE groups...as far as music concern...has none...some can sing...1 or 2 in each group I say....but then...JE groups are the real manufactured talents!!! Idols with no end...they can act...
but DBSK is not even promoting themselves as idols! Why can't they invite them? DBSK is a vocal group not an idol group like JE's...it makes me mad at the same time sad...They work so hard and one music show will bring them down!? that's stupid...Is it because Johnny Kitagawa gives money to MS?! JE's single is not even out yet but they perform it while DBSK was on top 10 and topped their num charts and they're still not guaranteed of going there...I say LSM should put his money in the line for the boys! ahaha...jk^^

anyways...for the real update:

Hey!3x Preview

http://youtube.com/watch?v=OD2HdKOihQk

I can't wait to watch it!!! If no one's going to sub it, I might will...no one has been subbing the boys Japanese shows these days...and hey! they're invited in Hey!3x multiple times...and Hey!3x is one of the prominent music show in Japan, too...

and let's think in the brighter way...even other groups in Japan were not invited in MS because of JE's

Dong Bang Shin Ki back with 4th album end-August?

Dong Bang Shin Ki will be back after 2 years back to Korea.

They received Golden Disk Award in 2006 after the release of their 3rd album. And they are currently having their activities in Asia region.

They also achieved number 1 on Oricon chart with the release of 3 of their Japanese singles. It is said that plans are set for them to come back to Korea for their promotional activities sometime around end-August to beginning September.

It is planned they will return after A-nation 08 soldout concert for AVEX singers is done in July-August period.

If things are settled down quickly, they will be back with their 4th album in end-August

But netizens and fans are all doubtful about the early comeback as A-nation 08 is one concert tour that goes around the country.
Also on SM Entertainment side, there are no special announcement on their comeback.
Meanwhile, SMTOWN LIVE 08 concert will open next month. And on 15th August a special fanmeeting will held and Dong Bang Shin Ki, SHINee, So Nyeo Shi Dae and Cheon Sang Ji Hee the Grace is said to appear on the fanmeeting.
