EDIT:


ok, the official list just came:



http://www9.nhk.or.jp/kouhaku/artists/index.html


for these of you who do not know what kouhaku is:


Kōhaku Uta Gassen (紅白歌合戦, Kōhaku Uta Gassen?), more commonly known as simply Kōhaku, is an annual music show on the New Year's Eve produced by Japanese public broadcaster NHK and broadcast on both television and radio, nationally and internationally by NHK's networks and some overseas (mainly cable) broadcasters which bought the program. The show ends shortly before midnight (when NHK switches to a frenzy of "Happy New Year" greetings from around the nation).

Literally "Red and White Song Battle," the program divides the most popular music artists of the year into competing teams of red and white. The "red" team or akagumi (赤組, 紅組, akagumi?) is composed of all female artists (or groups with female vocals), while the "white" team or shirogumi (白組, shirogumi?) is all male (or groups with male vocals). The honor of performing on Kōhaku is strictly by invitation, so only the most successful J-Pop artists and enka singers can perform. In addition to the actual music performances, the costumes, hair-styles, makeup, dancing, and lighting are also important. Even today, a performance on Kōhaku is said to be a big highlight in a singer's career because of the show's large reach.

yepp saw on soompi that theres even a news article about it too. =D Cant believe DBSK's dream is coming true. They got invited to kouhaku!! But i'd think somethings wrong if Tohoshinki DIDNT get invited..i mean...Four #1 weekly's on Oricon. Made history again and again lol. This is a breakthrough for their career in Japan~ Lol

It's the first time I heard of Kohaku and it's really great that the boys are invited. They totally deserve it. I can foresee that they will bring the house down... They always do so anyway!
