10 years since the debut, it is that 10 years in which the rivers and the mountains change. Among that time’ TVXQ!’ also changed. Wait, no, they transformed. The new album ‘TENSE’ is the result of it. ‘TENSE’ has the meaning of ‘Mind being sensitive’. It means an ever-nervous stage. There is one more meaning; it has the same pronunciation as ‘10th’, which represents 10 years.
The change of TVXQ!, it was so joyful. It could be seen in the title song ‘Something’. This song is a swing jazz genre in which TVXQ! tries for the first time. It is lively and joyful. It is at the opposite point from the previous music which was magnificent and powerful. In one word, it is public-friendly.
“Since it is the 10th year since the debut, we wished to show TVXQ!’s lively and joyous side that was not there originally. New music, our goal is to pursue several different kinds of genres and this time, we chose swing jazz. We had in our minds wanting to come closer in a way in which we can appeal more to the public. We could say that this is a gift we give to lots of fans.
Why would TVXQ! have chosen the song ‘Something’ as the album title song for 10th anniversary since their debut in New Year 2014? In regards to that, ‘Something’ was hidden inside. It is ‘Something’ about ‘Something’ that TVXQ! shares to the readers of ‘STARCAST’ themselves.
