[TRANS] 091128 Max Matsuura Email To his Friendlist


I believe even many of you have noticed there are a lot of messages from TVXQ fans which contains support, advice, anxiety, and even frustation.

There are quite many things are sent to me.

Would everyone give these serious idea and/or feedbacks to AVEX as well?

I would like to thank you for all the advices you sent me.

Meanwhile, for me not being able to respond anything, I’m truly sorry.

The first time I began writing about Tohoshinki on my blog was on December 29th, 2006 “Tohoshinki single Step by Step is coming out next year!!!”. It’s been 3 years since then. From the promotion, to the first appearance in Music Station, to appearance in Red and White, etc… the staffs have put so much effort to all those events, my heart is trembling when I try to recall everything.

We’ve done our utmost effort (to support the boys), however, there are a lot of things we’re not given any information.

Therefore, please understand that this is not the right time to release any official statement.

Indeed, we’re going to do everything we’re supposed to do.

South Korea popular group TVXQ and Big Bang were awarded the Gold Artist Award in Japan.

On November 26th, TVXQ and Big Bang stood side by side while were awarded the Gold Artist Award at “Best Hits Song Festival 2009″ airing by Nihon TV. Since TVXQ debuted in 2005, they took 2 years to be awarded the Gold Artist Award for the first time as for Big Bang, they got it after 5 months prior to their debut.

Since last July, three TVXQ members Micky Yoochun, Youngwoong Jaejoong, and Xiah Junsu have been involved in exclusive contract dispute against SM Entertainment which is leading to disbanding issue. After the last stage of a-nation Osaka in August, it’s been 3 months since all five members gathered together on stage, therefore this event has received overwhelming interest from all fans both in Korea and Japan.

When TVXQ was having an interview after rehearsal on the stage, the leader U-Know Yunho said, “I really want to perform on this stage soon,” revealing his wish, “We’re really glad for having the Gold Artist Award.”

“Best Hits Song Festival” is a J-POP awards event broadcast by Nihon TV to give out Gold Award and Rookie Award grand prizes. This is the continuing streak of Kpop artists winning in Gold Artist Award after BoA who won it in 2007 and TVXQ in 2008.

[NEWS] 091126 TVXQ Fans Submit Retaliation To SM’s Statement “Ticket Sales Began In September”


TVXQ fans submitted a civil appeal to the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism stating that SM Entertainment began selling tickets for TVXQ’s Shenzhen concert before receiving permission from the Chinese government. To this, SM explained that, “We asked the concert planning agency in charge of TVXQ’s Asia Tour, and they said all legal permission and procedures pertaining to ticket sales for the Shenzhen concert had no problems whatsoever.” However, fans are stating that SM’s statement is a lie.

Recently in an interview with a journalist, SM stated, “The ‘Nanjing Asia Pacific Correspondence of Culture Exchange Corporation’ was informed by the People’s Republic of China’s Ministry of Culture that ‘Permission is granted for TVXQ’s Guangdong (Shenzhen) concert’ on the 21st of October. The Chinese agency also received the ‘Ratification by the Ministry of Culture of Korean TVXQ’s Concert in Guangdong (Shenzhen) [2009] Number 2146.”

Therefore, SM stated that ticket sales began on October 21st, when Dream Maker was given permission to do so.

However, fans stated that, “‘Nanjing Asia Pacific Correspondence of Culture Exchange Corporation’ gave the authorization to sell tickets to ‘Piao’ on September 30th,” and “Ticket sales actually began before this date,” and presented evidence. The actual date of the transfer of the authorization of ticket sales did indeed begin on September 30th.

Fans stated, “‘Piao’ believed that by being given the authorization to sell tickets, permission for the concert had already been given. Therefore, they did their job and began selling tickets. However, September 30th is quite far away from October 21st. Therefore, SM Entertainment blatantly disregarded China’s procedures for such an event.”

Fans also stated, “For the Chinese companies, as they work with concerts in China, they are allowed to draw up contracts regarding sponsors regardless of whether or not permission has been given. However, if the Chinese company, SM and Dream Maker are planning to hand over the authorization of ticket sales, they should have waited until after permission was give before doing so.”

To collect evidence that ticket sales began before permission was granted by the Chinese government, fans presented receipts and lists of order confirmation of fans who had bought tickets for the concert.

▲Shenzhen Concert Ticket Sales Confirmation List A confirmation list of a ticket buyer in China. The date on the receipt states October 5th. However, SM stated that ticket sales began on October 21st. ⓒDNBN

According to this evidence, the payment bank account and money transfer receipt are both listed under the date October 11th. Other ticket confirmation lists are even dated as October 5th. This proves that ticket sales were occurring before permission from the Chinese government was given.

Fans stressed that, “If this isn’t a violation of ticket sales, then what is?” and “This proves that ticket sales began even though permission wasn’t give by the Chinese government.”

Fans also said, “The Shenzhen concert is a concert directly linked with SM,” and “No explanation can let SM escape from their responsibility for going ahead with a concert regardless of the fact that the government had not granted permission yet.”

On the 16th, regarding TVXQ fans’ civil appeal titled ‘SM Entertainment’s Disregard for the Chinese Administrative Procedures may obstruct Culture Exchanges between Korea and China’, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism stated, “In the case of China, a license system is used for foreign concerts,” and “As you have stated, the actions of disregarding a country’s appropriate procedures may have a negative effect on the growth of the Hallyu Wave, the image of the Korean music market and the nation as a whole, as well as the cultural exchange between the two nations.”

The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism also stated, “We will call a representative of SM forth to clarify and set regulations so that such an event will not occur again.”
