[News] Tohoshinki at Line-Up Guest for 僕らの音樂 (Our Music)



Tohoshinki is listed in guests line up for Fuji TV’s Bokurano Ongaku (僕らの音樂) - Our Music show on March 20th.
No other info mentioned, and since I’m not so into Japanese’s TV programmes, can anyone tell us about this Bokurano Ongaku show?? ^^
I’m waiting for their second attempt to perform SURVIVOR. The previous one at Music Station didn’t impress me much, so I hope this one will be better and LONGER :D

[Translation] Oricon Style Magazine March 09 - Interview on Members' Secrets Revealed (TVXQ/DBSK/Tohoshinki/東方神起/동방신기)

With their popularity rising everyday, TVXQ has become the Monthly Artist in Oricon Style. They will now reveal their true side to everyone. This week, Yunho and Junsu will be revealing Yoochun, Changmin and Jaejoong's secrets.


#1. JS, YH, YC, CM & JJ's secrets

Q: We'd like to know more about each member this time, so please do tell us some secrets the members have as they're not here now. First, we have Yunho and Junsu to tell us about Changmin, Yoochun and Jaejoong's personalities. We'll also reveal some of their secrets along the way.
JS: Sigh~no! We know each other too well, so there aren't any secrets between us.

Q: It doesn't have to some shockingly huge secret, something small like an odd habit or a past experience would do as well. Shall we start by introducing each member's personality? Junsu, what do you think of Jaejoong?
JS: Ah~ he's very open minded, and a very warm person. He has a really bright personality, and his muscles are great too.

Q: What about Yunho?

YH: I agree with what Junsu said. Jaejoong is a very warm person, and full of feelings as well.

Q: Do you know any secrets about him?

JJ: Ah, let me give you a hint (JJ interrupts the interview suddenly). What am I wearing inside my pants?
YH: Yeah, that's right! Jaejoong always wears a pair of tights, those that you wear when working out. He wears that all the time.
JJ: -looks very happy- Yes! Because these tights seem to have calorie-burning properties, so I've been wearing them; it'll be like working out all the time. There're various styles with varying lengths, from ankle to knee-length. I'm wearing the shorter kind now. I won't be able to live without these. Oh, and one more thing! Another hint. What is it that I always can't remember?

Q: Who gets this hint...?

JJ: -doesn't wait for members to respond and starts talking by himself- I can't remember the songs. I always have to practise my parts 10-20 times. Its probably around 5-6 times of what the members practise. At those times I'd think, "Am I stupid?" -bitter laugh-

Q: Jaejoong told us his own secret. Next is Yoochun. He seems to be the one with the best English, and has a knowledgeable kind of image, personality wise.
YH: You're right, indeed it is like this.

JS: His secret is... its really cool. Yoochun likes to modify cars. He's very familiar with musical gadgets/equipment as well, so he's really knowledgeable about machinery. He's also good at guessing riddles and making plastic models. Yoochun's also the only member who has two notebooks.
YC: I like IT stuff a lot.
JS: I'm worst at those. I'm not really good with the iPod even. But, I feel very blessed the way I am now, its enough already. -laughs- Displaying Yoochun's potential to the fullest is a game in itself already. When we play RPG (Role-playing Game), Yoochun would try new weapons and grow stronger; find secret pathways. But I wouldn't do anything other than moving forward. Its too tiring to think of so many things. Yoochun on the other hand really enjoys the process of gaming.

Q: Then, please talk about Changmin' secrets next.
YH: He's 21 isn't he, but he doesn't look like it so people usually get a shock when they know his age. He looks the most mature out of all the members, is the tallest and has big eyes, nose and mouth.

Q: His personality is the most mature as well?

CM: Not at all. I have a very low threshold for resisting stress. -laughs- And I'm very stubborn as well.
YH: Well, Changmin would have very strong determination to achieve what he wants to if he has a goal. But he also does take others' suggestions and comments into consideration.
JS: This is a secret. He sweats especially easily these days. -laughs- I used to be the one who sweats the fastest, but now its Changmin. He bathes really fast as well. If you get closer to him, he has a masculine smell. Maybe this is the smell of the tough guy that sends girls' hearts aflutter.
YH: But Changmin has very strong, unwavering thoughts. If he thinks so, he'll remain constant throughout til the end. I find that admirable.
JS: Changmin's forehead is really wide as well. This is really another secret as well. -laughs-

[Info] "Survivor" in Oricon Ninki-Chart (TVXQ/DBSK/Tohoshinki/東方神起/동방신기)



"NEXT LEVEL" tops the Oricon's "Ninki-Chart" in the launch of the week. In March, "This Is The One" from Utada to score the highest. NINKI is a list that provides a forecast for the interest for new launches. 356 of 400 people said they are interested in buying the albums. Figures from Ninki can be very divergent from the final sales results, so do not have too high expectations.

The NINKI ratings are the results of a poll conducted by Oricon indicating interest in an upcoming release. Although the ratings are never a true reflection of sales, it does give a strong prediction about where the single/album will place in terms of popularity amongst the Japanese public. having said so, they are NOT an indication of how it will perform in terms of chart positioning and total sales for the week.

[Info] CD Japan Top 10 CD Chart Ranking (TVXQ/DBSK/Tohoshinki/東方神起/동방신기)

Tohoshinki occupied four spaces in the top 10 CD charts on CD Japan today with 4 different versions of their soon to be released CD's.. Unfortunately none of those CD's were ranked number 1 and neither was their upcoming 27th single 'Survivor'.

The 'Secret Cord' jacket A (Ok.. isn't it secret CODE?! I'm confused but that's what it says on CD Japan), was ranked second after fellow label mate Ayumi Hamasaki who had the number 1 spot. The other positions in which Tohoshinki occupied included 4th place with their single 'Share The World/We are!' jacket A, 'Secret Code' jacket C at 9th place and 'Secret Code' jacket B at 10th place.





Their single 'Survivor' which is to be released three days from now occupied the 14th position on the chart.

This is a pretty good result considering that other artists on the top 10 chart are extremely popular artists in Japan, including Ayumi Hamasaki, Utada Hikaru and Koda Kumi.

[Info] TVXQ on Our Music on 20th March

"Tohoshinki" carries the meaning of "Gods rising from the east". They were named thus as they wanted to be able to establish for themselves a name worldwide while starting from Asia. The group debuted in Korea in February 2004, and quickly became one of the most popular artistes in Asia, where they also received a lot of support. Although they are modern singers, the group is able to harmonize their voices perfectly in acapella, and all the members have the capability of being lead singers.

Tohoshinki comprises of:
Changmin (Max) -1988/02/18
Yunho (U-Know)- 1986/02/06
Jaejoong (Hero)- 1986/01/26 (T/N: Jae's year was mistakenly put as 1982 in the original ad T_T)
Yoochun (Micky)- 1987/06/04
Junsu (Xiah)- 1987/01/01

Not only is the group active in Korea, they also introduced a new side to Jpop when they officially debuted in Japan in April 2005. The group sang in Japanese, and managed to gain popularity slowly but steadily. They eventually managed to hold a live tour, "Tohoshinki 2nd Live Tour 2007- Five In The Black", which was wildy popular and had fans fighting over the tickets. With this never-before-seen situation, the company added another 2 shows in Japan Budokan, for which tickets were sold out as well. Their performances were well-received and positively reviewed by many. The same summer, the group also took part in SOUL POWER 2007/ Naniwa SUMMIT, alongside artists such as Masayaki Suzuki, Gospellers and Skoop on Somebody, which received positive reviews. "Tohoshinki 3rd Live Tour 2008 ~T~" was held in the first part of 2008, which saw 150 thousand audience members, and the large-scale live tour ended successfully. The group's amazing popularity is not only evident in Asian countries such as Korea, Japan, Malaysia, Taiwan and Thailand, the five-member group will also continue their activities with the goal to acquire the world, with their base in Japan and Korea.

Their new album "The Secret Code" will be on sale on 25th March.
