TVXQ Comes to Shanghai For Concert – Most Expensive Ticket Worth 5000 Yuan

TVXQ’s appeal was always surprising. Throughout the various cities in Asia, there is always a lot of people going to their functions and concerts. On October 12th, they will have their concert at the Shanghai Hongkou Football Stadium. After a week of ticket-selling, most of the tickets were already gone. This led to prices being pushed up, and some are worth up to 5000 yuan. (T/N: $731.84 U.S. dollars)

The concert called “TVXQ 3rd Asia Tour Shanghai Stop” started selling tickets last week. The lowest price was 450 yuan (T/N: $70.26 U.S. dollars), which was a few times more expensive than the cheapest tickets for other concerts held in that location, and those tickets were worth 80-180 yuan (T/N: $11.71 U.S. dollars – $26.35 U.S. dollars). The organizers set the prices after accounting the costs for the concert. This concert’s most expensive ticket was priced at 1280 yuan, but through the internet and other ways, each of those tickets was already priced at 5000 yuan.

The design of the dance stage for the Shanghai stop will be different from those in the Beijing and Nanjing stops. The site will be in a “王” shape. Therefore, the audience from the front and the back will get to see TVXQ close up, and the closest distance will be only a few meters.

U-Know Yunho “Can’t Get Enough Of Bong-goon”

Group ‘TVXQ’’s U-Know Yunho finished his first filming for the new MBC Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘Heading to the Ground’ <script: Park Sol Ji, Directing: Park Sungsoo> with co-star Lee Yoonji.
U-Know Yunho plays ‘Bong-goon,’ a soccer player who has nothing and lives an unlucky life but lives passionately to fulfill his dream of becoming a national soccer player while surviving three near-death experiences. This is U-Know Yunho’s first attempt at acting since debuting five years ago.

The day’s filming was shot in Bong-goon’s house in Sangsoo-dong in which Bong-goon (U-Know Yunho) hears from Yeonji (Lee Yoonji) that the girl Bong-goon liked, Mi-gyung, is getting married and Bong-goon leaves the house furious. U-Know Yunho, who was known to be fully committed about his role and who had many in-depth discussions with the staff to fully understand the character that the script writer had wanted, was seen talking seriously with Director Park Sungsoo and listening to every direction so that he could capture the right character that was needed for ‘Bong-goon.’

U-Know Yunho stated, “I thought I would be very nervous but we had a lot of active scenes from the first shoot so I had a lot of fun. I do feel burdened and pressured a bit as this is my first attempt at acting but I want to work hard to correctly portray Bong-goon who lives life to the fullest even though he doesn’t live in the best conditions.” U-Know Yunho, who is required to play center-forward in the drama, also showed off some of his soccer moves as he stated that he liked to play soccer during his free time.

On a side note, no fewer than 100 fans gathered around Bong-goon’s house to catch a glimpse of the star in action. The Human Victory Spectacle, Human Drama ‘Heading to the Ground’ will begin airing on Spetember 9th.

Nikkan Sports Daily: YUNHO’s Interview

A dream to be prosecutor

The fact why U-Know Yunho (23) was chosen as the group’s leader.

All members said that it’s because his “charismatic charisma”, and he himself is someone who has a high awareness about the surroundings (T/N: care with other people).

His father is very strict. He’s been taught about a sincere manliness for a belief that “a man should be like this” in him. Due to his father’s lesson, from the very young age, he’s trained to not easily whinny when he made mistakes.

He becomes a natural leader and always been chosen as captain. His dream was to be a public prosecutor back then.

From what being heard, he used to withstand his father a lot.

“It’s true. When I was in middle school, I was in my rebellious stage.”

But now he already gave up to make a change of the natural flow of his life.
“This is what I’m supposed be. I think it’s perfect.” he laughed excitingly.

He added, “When I was still as trainee in my agency, I had never got a compliment like “you did good”. I was wondering whether I wasn’t praised because the expectation of the company was greater. I so missed to get credit of what I did, back then.”

Just like other members, there’s a while in Japan when he’s thinking “Why can’t we be accepted?”. Many nights had passed sleeplessly. The unusual sense of responsibility in him forced out, thus the agony was doubled. “I was thinking about returning back to Korea. Whether this is what we really want to do. I was so scared.” he revealed.

Right now, their stardom has rose steadily in Japan with the stages in Budoukan and Tokyo Dome, however, the most surprising effect happened after they’re invited for the first time and debuted at NHK Kouhaku Red-White concert last year.

January this year.
When they went to Saipan in the PV shooting, the women of the local residents said, “We know Tohoshinki. We watched them in Red-White concert.”

“Not only young people, but Grandpa, grandma, and even people abroad, they know Tohoshinki. This is amazing.”

Motsunabe is the best.

Currently he’s been addicted to Japan motsunabe. “There are a lot of delicious food in Japan. But if I have to choose one, then motsunabe is. There’s also food like this in Korea, but Japanese’s has more simple taste. When I ate it in Japan for first time in Hakata, it was so delicious that even surprised me. Definitely perfect for my taste.

Everytime I went to eat in Hakata, it’s just like a melody: when being asked, ‘Do you want to eat motsunabe?’ I’ll answered. ‘of course. I want it so much!’”

There’s a hope within the mighty arms.

When being asked about the goals in the future, he cited the name Michael Jackson. “No matter the time has passed, his music remains forever. I’d like to sing songs like that. For everyone who always support us, we’ll never be forgetting our dream.”

With the fans, U-Know Yunho will always keep Tohoshinki at the top pace.

YUNHO’s Profile

- Born February 6, 1986. Always becomes a leader ever since elementary school.
- Leader.
- Bass voice
- 184 cm, 63 kg.
- Blood type A.

TOHOSHINKI?
- My friends and family. The most important treasures.

If not become Tohoshinki?
- Prosecutor. What I always dream in my childhood.
Grandfather, father, and paternal relatives are all from the Faculty of Law.

Specialty?
- Aikido. I’d been taught since a very young age and also taekwondo.

Favorite singer?
- The Gospellers. I love all the members.
Eventhough we already had opportunity to perform together with them few times, they still look big for me.

Strong and weakness point?
- My strong point is my concentration, I can actually be addicted to something. While my weakness point is my forgetful attitude. Recently the goods of mine I’ve been missing out are increasing…

DBSK Lawsuit Issues

T/N:DO NOT TRANSLATE INTERNET ARTICLES. THEY ARE JUST RUMORS. It's nothing new that they blow the news up. seriously.SMent is using MEDIA PLAY . I'm constantly over at DNBN (biggest dbsk fansite). and they are chill over there. they know the real deal. which is basically this:

1. DBSK's 3 members are putting lawsuit to FIX and REARRANGE the contract. it does NOT mean they are breaking up.

2. Dbsk is not in the same situation as their sunbaes were. HOT and SES

3.Sm.Ent will in the end have to listen to DBSK. Reason? it's by a fan who is a lawyer (cassie). --> IF DBSK was to come out of SM ent to move to a different company, the huge hit SM.ent will face from AVEX is beyond imaginable. because AVEX and SM are linked. IF DBSk get's out of Sm. it means they will end contract with AVEX as well. Dbsk is literally making huge money for AVEx if not all of it from their fan base which hit like 120,300 well that's the last ticket number the newest bigeast fan got (Ameblo japan site), concert, goods. DBsk has the biggest number of fanclub members in avex. The money flowing in through avex and dbsk's popularity in japan cannot be ignored. avex will be pissed at sm. so will the commercial deals that dbsk has in japan (2) will be lost. Avex deals with dbsk's commercials. if dbsk breaks with sm. they break with avex. avex lose money. avex will also have to deal with lawsuit with the two commercial companies. and domino breaks from there. so SMENT will in the end have to negotiate to fix the contract with dbsk. thats what DBSK wants. it happened to SMAP as well back in the days. these aren't new. it's just getting a bigger media attention because its DBSK.


DBSK KNOWS THIS. They are the only idol group out there that has this much power to do this. that's why they are using the chance to fix their contracts "slave contracts" they will succeed obviously. It's so obvious because of the domino affect with the 2 linked companies. DBSk is going to help change slave contracts in korea with all idols. Another history. like always they are the first sunbaes. you guys have to trust them. It's NOT a big deal. It's NOT them breaking up. Cassies knows this. they've already sent out a letter to bigeast fans assuring them its not a big deal.

SM.ent is trying to make the 3 members look bad with their cosmetic line as well. and not using media attention to promote the Tokyo Dome Concerts ( have u noticed there weren't many tokyo dome news out about dbsk in korea? Sm.ent doesnt want to show how much dbsk's power and influence they have right now. DBSK is getting HUGE. sm.ent is scared.) its called MEDIA PLAY (언플...) it's always out about. yg is notorious for it as well.
that's basically the translation.

red]DNBN Cassie explanation - "Always Have Faith"

Here is a nice explanation from Korean Cassies of what's really going on. Hopefully this will help clear up some rumors and confusion.



ALWAYS HAVE FAITH
by : CASSIOPEIA 데니제제

1. What is DBSK's break up, and why did this break up news pop out?
and Are the news about DBSK true?


+ The words about DBSK breaking up came up as the news of the 3 members Jaejoong, YuChun, and Junsu filing a "Provisional disposition of suspending exclusive/ongoing contract" to the court came out. The breaking up rumors are just false rumors. The reason why the breakup rumors came out is because of the news of the members filing a suspension of the contract created more rumors amongst the fans. The most known false rumors flowing around from this were : The members not getting along, and the problems with SM Ent. and the member's cosmetic line. A these rumors came out the break up rumors came out as well. The only real truth that are out about DBSK is the news about the members filing a suspension of contract. That's the only one.

2. What is the deal with DBSK's rumors about setting up a cosmetic company and the problems? What kind of relation does this have?

+ To tell the truth there is no relation with the cosmetic line and DBSK's break up rumors. Of course the members that had filed the contract suspension were the ones that are opening the store, but the members are not the owners of the cosmetic company. They are just managing ONE store. The only thing the 3 members are responsible for is just ONE branch of the entire company. There were rumors about the members and the company in the past, and it seems to have been building up into false rumors. but the cosmetic line having relations to the reason of why the members have filed the contract suspensions are not true. These rumors are just what the people are assuming because they have no clue what is going on with what is true and what is not true. because of this reason, as long as there has not been a clear statement of confirmation, it is not true.

3. What is a "Provisional disposition of suspending exclusive contract" ? and What happens when this lawsuit is in action?

+ Simply, when you file a lawsuit of suspending a contract, you are basically putting a stop to the validity of the existing contract. An ongoing contract is basically saying that you will stay with the same company for a long time, but DBSK wants to fix the existing contract's fishy areas and wants to express how the members wants to fix the contract and show what they want. That is it. This filing of lawsuit has nothing to do with DBSK members breaking up. And this lawsuit has nothing to do with who will be WINNING or LOSING. If this file gets passed and accepted then it just means that the existing contract will just lose the validity not that DBSK will leave SM Ent. and have DBSK break up.

4. On the re-contracting, there are talks that Yunho and Changmin have done a re-contract with SM Ent. is this true?

+ I don't know where you heard this from, but this has never been confirmed formally and is just a false rumor. There has not even been a real news report of this rumor, and it's JUST the 3 members filing a provisional disposition about the contract. Just because the 3 members have put out a provision doesn't mean that just because only 3 members did that the other 2 made recontracts. These are just rumors. There were no talks or whatsoever about this. This is untrue.

5. How do we deal with all the false allegations, rumors, and articles that are still spreading?

+ To tell the truth, not all of us have the high tolerance and knowledge to be able to just pass and ignore all the news articles spreading over the internet and the on the search engines. And also the fact that not many of us have unlimited knowledge of how lawsuits work, of course many of us will panic over the news articles talking about the rumors as if they were facts, and about DBSK breaking up. In these kind of cases we just have to stay strong when seeing overly exaggerated articles and false articles. Because we Cassies are together with DBSK we have to show them. We can't leave rude comments, and to not spread false rumors from reading false articles ourselves. We have to spread the right informations to the people and learn to gain the right informations as well. We have to request posts about taking down false informations and post and scrap the articles that have been formally confirmed by sm.ent and from right sources.

6. Even though they are rumors, rumors have been proved true alot of the times. Are there anything out there that are actual facts?

+ As long as the rumors have not been formally confirmed there is no possible way that we can call it actual facts. But we are for sure that the only thing 3 members have done is that they filed a lawsuit to FIX the contract (edit it basically) regarding slave contract, the validity date of the contract, and unfair contract listings. And to do this they have right now put a hard stance by putting a suspension to the validity of the existing contract. A lot of people are saying that DBSK will just become the 2nd H.O.T. and S.E.S. but situation is very different. DBSK is not just top idols in Korea but also artists who are very influential outside of Korea. SM. Dnt is not a company that would kick out DBSK just because their artist put a lawsuit. Even if DBSK was to break up from Sm.ent, this does not mean that DBSK will break up. Many might be asking ' What does that mean?' DBSK is also in contract with a ent. group AVEX in japan. The contract validity with AVEX ent. has not ended and also have contracted with 2 companies for 2 CFs. DBSK also will be participating in Japan's A-Nation starting today and also on the 1st of August, 22,23,29,and 30.
If DBSK was to even break away from SM Ent, they will have to deal with damages for breach of contract with Avex. Thing will get dirty. There has been the same situation in Japan with a group called SMAP. Back then SMAP's member Kimura takaya(?) had filed a lawsuit against his own company called Johnny's ent. The company backed away and reedited the contract and after that all the rest of the idol groups from there follows the new contract. Back then everyone there said that Kimura was going to take off to a new company and be solo, and every year his group gets hit with false rumors of breaking up but they are still together to this day. Anyway again, we believe that it will be best if all you guys would stop making careless judgment about DBSK's breakup rumors.


SO BASICALLY THE TO POINT IS THAT: DBSK's members Jaejoong, Xiah Junsu, and Micky Yoochun have filed a lawsuit " Provisional disposition of suspending exclusive/ongoing contract" based on the contract's basic terms of conditions, 13 year of slave contract term conditions of money. The false and over exaggerated news reports are overflowing, and the rumors of the company having issues with the members company line and the members not getting along are false. Just because they filed a lawsuit does not mean they are breaking up. They are just filing a lawsuit to FIX the existing contract with SM Ent. They have filed a lawsuit because SM Ent. would not negotiate in talks with the members and they have tried many times. Because negotiations did not get through the members as artist have filed a lawsuit against their company. The only way. So it is best to not believe the false rumors and read false articles.

With worries about Dong Bang Shin Ki disbandment, Chinese fans join in the fan panic

It seems that the Chinese fans have also joined in the fan panic with the news of danger that Dong Bang Shin Ki will disband.

On Chinese Sina.com and other media, there were reports about Dong Bang Shin Ki members Xiah JunSu, Micky YooChun and Hero JaeJoong has went up to Seoul Central District Court to apply for provisional retractile of their exclusive rights effect from their contract with SM Entertainment.

The reports also went, “With this news of a lawsuit by the Dong Bang Shin Ki members, many of Dong Bang Shin Ki’s fans have been taken aback, especially for their official fanclub Cassiopeia, they are in a panic state.”

With these reports, Chinese fans said, “If this is the route they choose, we will support them”, “But still this is the company that groomed them to be top stars, isn’t that a little too much?” with various responses.

Meanwhile, it has been known that members UKnow YunHo and Max ChangMin has decided not to join the rest of the members in this pending lawsuit.

With these news, there have much speculations that the chance of the group disbanding is high since it has been more than 5 years since they debuted in 2005.

But with that, SM Entertainment released official statements:

•They said on 1st August morning, “It is true that Xiah, Hero and Micky made the application for provisional disposition to terminate the exclusive rights effects from their contract on 31st July at the district court. With that the company is very taken back by the action, we are trying to get confirm all the truth from them currently.
•They continued, “But as a representative group to the country and to Asia, our stand is that activities for Dong Bang Shin Ki have to continue even with this disposition application. And about the problems arising from the discussion to do a cosmetic entreprise, we plan to talk over them and sort out the problems as soon as possible.”
•SM Entertainment’s representative added about rumours to the band’s disbandment, “On SM’s side, we still have much love for Dong Bang Shin Ki. We do not want them to disband. Let’s resolve this peacefully seeing the long time we have worked together since their debut till now.”

Read the full followup Korean news report here: [Updated] Dong Bang Shin Ki Xiah, Micky and Hero for a lawsuit against SM? Worries for group disband

I want to take this chance to also clarify, whatever that is reported on KBites about this case are only from Korean news sites. I don’t care what other sites or forums post, I’m going to stick with just the Korean news article on this case.
