At 9:00AM on March 24th. The place in front of Seoul Station is quiet. We can finally take some breath after the busy rush hour is over.
But, the atmosphere inside Seoul Station is a little different. It is in front of the waiting room on 3rd floor. It is like as if we are watching people coming back to Seoul after thanksgiving. There are also various nationalities – Korea, Japan, China, Thailand. There are even people from Singapore all gathered here.
Are they going on a train journey as a group or something?
The one who became the 1st place in all music broadcast shows last week was TVXQ!, who returned with Something, which makes to move the body along with the swing jazz melody. Since the debut, TVXQ! has been always maintaining its top place for 10 years until now, just like their tall heights. Because of such reputation, it was not that easy to approach and examine TVXQ!.
It seems like they reduced their energy a little bit in 2014 but they are still cool with fantastic performance hidden within the agility that is unique to them. The detailed charm of U-Know and MAX from TVXQ! will be revealed through STAR CAST.
# We will proceed after looking at the profile
TVXQ! special edition photo chocolates created by More Than Chocolate sparks great interest among fans.
To commemorate the 10th anniversary debut and the success return with the 7th album ‘TENSE’, Mnet Wide Entertainment News Open Studio team made a request to More Than Chocolate for sponsored chocolates recently. By using photos from the album as the featured artwork, these edible chocolates came out extraordinary while setting a new record for being the largest chocolates ever produced by More Than Chocolate.
The biggest photo chocolate piece measuring 16cm by 12cm is positioned above the smaller pieces which are cut into squares of 4cm by 4cm. TVXQ! and each members’ names are imprinted with white chocolates.
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.
“Nobody will probably know?”…TVXQ!, ‘Something’ about the waiting room.
Hello. We are TVXQ!. Did you guys enjoy our comeback stage in New Year? From January 3rd to 5th, we have finished all of the performances on the ground wave music broadcast show of 3 broadcasting companies.
The title song ‘Something’ is a song in which TVXQ! tried the swing for the first time and ‘Ten’ was a song that celebrated the 10th anniversary of TVXQ!.
It has been a year and four months to go up on the stage in Korea with a name of TVXQ!. It was still exciting to see the stage in which we headed again to in such a long time. Because we have prepared with lots of efforts, there were also considerable amount of nervousness. I am guessing the fans were also thinking the same thing, right?
So, we have prepared. For people who still could not realize that we made a comeback, we will reveal the waiting room of the comeback broadcast. We hope you guys can ‘catch’ TVXQ!’s different kinds of charm that could not be seen on shows. U-Know and MAX will each be introducing, respectively.
