TVXQ’s new single tops Oricon chart

Posted by diopatra on January 29, 2010

Boy band TVXQ’s new single “BREAK OUT!” has topped Japan’s Oricon daily singles chart the day of its release.

The group’s 29th single album, released Wednesday, sold close to 170,000 copies to top the prestigious chart, easily beating out No. 2 L’Arc En Ciel who sold 33,000 copies of their single titled “BLESS.”

They plan on releasing their first best album titled “Best Selection 2010” sometime next month.

TVXQ, who debuted in 2004 with the single “Hug”, became popular not only in Korea but other Asian countries as well. Their singing career in Japan has been a success in particular — last year, they became the first foreign artist to top the Oricon singles charts six times with their 27th single “Share the World/We are!”

Despite speculation that the group may disband with three of the five members being involved in a legal dispute with their agency SM Entertainment, TVXQ has continued their activities in Japan.

Spotted: TVXQ in Las Vegas and Featured in CNN!!

Posted by diopatra on January 27, 2010

Las Vegas, enormous HDTV flat screens… could TVXQ really be living it up in Sin City?

With the members scattered across Korea, Australia and Canada, TVXQ has truly gone global. Yesterday, we reported that Jaejoong was recently spotted in Vancouver, Canada (having a little rendezvous with SS501’s Hyun Joong no less), and today, a video capturing the idol lying on a patch of carpet with a glass of wine in Vegas recently surfaced the internet. Wait, carpet and wine… what?

Sorry to burst your bubble, but there currently aren’t any reports of Jaejoong physically being in America. a recent CNN report has caught the attention of many because TVXQ was featured in a video at a huge convention this weekend. the clip, which was featured on CNN’s website, covers the annual Consumer Electronics show (CES), the world’s largest consumer technology tradeshow that took place in the new Wynn Hotel on the Las Vegas strip. and yes, this is the same convention that featured 2NE1 as well.

Samsung was one of many corporations to host a booth at the event, featuring new technology and a number of feature products, including the 9000 Series LED HDTV. Guess what Samsung chose as a demonstration video for its gorgeous 1080 HD display?

That’s right, Samsung picked none other than TVXQ’s wrong Number music video, with its focus on cellphones, taste for technology and aura of the high life – probably the look that Samsung was going for. So in a way, TVXQ has reached out to millions more by being in the right place at the right time. who knows, maybe the viewers that were watching CNN’s report got distracted by the hot Asian men in the background… I mean, that the TV-on-a-remote-control thing is pretty cool, but can you really ignore those drippingly hot guys in the background? Seriously?

Aya Ueto, THSK Monopolises New CM, Member Hope To Date

Posted by diopatra on July 8, 2009

Actress Aya Ueto, poster child for the new CM for『Oronamin C Drink』and guest characters Korean-born popular group, Tohoshinki, participated in the press conference that was held on 7th July. The popular group had just had a successful 2-days at the Tokyo Dome, and this is their first collaboration with Aya Ueto, who said “I’m happy to monopolise” with a smile.

In passing, as it was the Festival of the Weaver/Star Festival today, when asked about the ideal image of stars, they revealed, “Someone who is able to hold out till the end is good. A person who is distant but established”.

For the new CM, Aya Ueto dresses up as an OL (T/N: Office Lady), and the content also includes Tohoshinki singing in acapella. Looking back, Aya Ueto said, “Everyone was friendly and talked, so we were all able to loosen up”. Jejung gave high praise and said, “Ueta-san has a cute image, but if you see her close up, she’s a beautiful woman. It’s our first time (collaborating) and the atmosphere was good”, and it seems that they are very compatible.

Aya Ueta who appears in the『Oronamin C Drink』CM attended in a red yukata, told the press that her wish for the Festival of the Weaver, “It’s been a long time since I participated in a live during summer, I want to perform in front of a large assembly of people,” expressing her excitement at returning to the music scene after 2 years.

On the other hand, Jejung said, “Personally, I want to go on a date with a lover. But I don’t have a lover, and I haven’t gone on a date for years. She should have the ‘Genki batsuratsuu?’ feeling” mixing in the slogan of the product they were promoting, which appealed to the audience.

This is Aya Ueto’s 17th participation in a CM, and it will become Tohoshinki’s first domestic Japanese CM. 『Acapella Shinki』the new CM for『Oronamin C Drink』will be broadcasted nationwide on 11th July.
