The two members of TVXQ made an stunning humble moves towards the new singers at their last comeback stage.

On last January 8th in the evening TVXQ appeared at MBC ‘Music Core’ broadcast to present a debut stage of their new album title song ‘Why (Keep Your Head Down)’. Yet it’s reported that before going on the stage, TVXQ specially went around to each of all performing artists’ waiting room to hand their autographed CD personally.

Ever since their first single ‘Hug’ released in 2004, TVXQ has been debuted for 7 years and is considered as notable singes and sunbae of most of the artists attended the show. Yet for these seniors to go around all their juniors’ waiting rooms to greet each of them personally can be taken as a new and fresh attitude in Korean music industry and left everyone in surprise.

An official said, “When the boys came in our room all of sudden, we’re definitely startled to their greetings. However we didn’t see any arrogant vibe in their eyes, they’re just filled with sincerity,”

One of girl group member told the Asian Economy (Asiae) Sports Today, “The TVXQ sunbaes went around to greet all their junior singers. I’m surprised to see this great attitude. They’ve become seniors I want to learn from now.” she smiled.

Just like the head of rice, the more it’s cooked, the more it bowed. An image of senior artists that shows ‘modesty’ instead of ‘arrogance’ seems to lead by example for the first time by TVXQ, this simple thing is enough to give inspiration to their younger singers.

TVXQ’s title track ‘Why’ is an intense song that has masculine vibes, the group has been praised for their distinctive vocal and remarkable advanced performance.

[NEWS] Hallyu Stars Accused of Ignoring Korean Fans

It has continuously been pointed out that Hallyu stars who are
actively performing overseas rarely arrange performances and events for
Korean fans.

Hallyu stars reportedly consistently neglect Korean fans and usually
do not have much contact with fans in Korea; on the other hand, they
have adopted friendly images to the public overseas by holding
large-scale fan meetings and releasing photo and music albums.

Hallyu star Kwon Sang Woo, who evoked
criticism with a hit-and-run last month, has raised controversy because
he delivered a message of apology on his official Japanese fan website
before his Korean website. After the news on his hit-and-run was spread,
he just made a brief apology in Korea on the following day, which was
June 25, simply by using the press release that his agency had
distributed, but he still had not personally expressed an apology
officially in Korea for three weeks after the accident. On the contrary,
his agency had urgently left apology messages on the board of his
official website in Japan on the very next day, which was on June 25.
There was another posting made by the agency on June 29 to apologize for
the accident on the Japanese website.

When the fact that he already apologized personally in Japan became known in Korea, Kwon Sang
Woo posted his own written apology on his Internet fan café in Korea on
July 21. A spokesperson for his agency explained, “It is the result of a
misunderstanding. We just made the press release to the Japanese
agency, which was distributed on June 25, so the Japanese agency just
posted the notice along with the apology on the website.”

But criticisms were continuously raised on the Internet, such as, “He
regards Japanese fans as the ‘source of money,’ and regards Korean fans
as the ‘sitting duck,’” and, “Why is he concerned about Japanese fans
when he caused the hit-and-run in Korea?”

As Hallyu stars actively perform overseas, they can elevate the
status of Korea, which is a positive result. Stars’ activities have
actually contributed in large portion to attracting Japanese tourists to
Korea. The Korea Tourism Organization produced an advertising
commercial with star actor Lee Byung Hun last March. But, as he has
concentrated on overseas activities, he is also not free from the
criticism that he lacks consideration for Korean fans.
Hallyu stars also have many Korean fans, but their fan meetings held in Korea
are usually really events for foreign fans because the fan meetings
themselves are mostly held as the part of tour packages, so in actuality
Korean fans cannot participate in those events. Actor Lee Byung Hun
invited around 1,500 fans from Japan and countries in Southeast Asia and
held large-scale fan meeting on Jeju Island from July 9 until July 11.
Korean fans were not the target audience, so they naturally felt
disappointed about it. In addition, Korean fans rarely have the
opportunity to see stars except in dramas, movies, or TV commercials,
but stars hold fan meetings in Japan and Southeast countries very often.

Last December, actors Lee Hyung Hun, Song Seung Hun, Won Bin, and
Jang Dong Gun held a large fan meeting together in the Tokyo Dome in
Japan. It is very difficult to see those four actors together in Korea,
but they willingly flew to Tokyo to meet Japanese fans, and their fan
meetings were held twice and ended with a flourish to the enthusiastic
cheers of around 70,000 fans.
Star singers also tend to focus on overseas activities rather
then performances in Korea. The truly pan-Asian star singer Boa
performs in Japan for longer periods than Korea. Dong Bang Shin Ki also
devoted themselves in activities in Japan after they advanced into the
Japanese music industry.
Korean fans often buy star singers’
special albums and special photo exhibitions, which they have released
overseas, from agencies who buy them from foreign countries and sell in
Korea. In addition, fans basically support stars’ overseas activities,
but it is easy to find fans’ comments on the stars’ fan café sites
expressing their disappointment. As stars advance overseas and become
more focused on overseas activities, Koreans fans, who have actually
made them stars in the first place, feel more neglect.

A person in the entertainment business said, “Overseas
activities usually are so-called money-making opportunities, more so
than here in Korea. More than that, to keep their popularity overseas,
they have to have more chances to see their fans in foreign countries,
so they cannot help focusing on overseas activities.”
