Tag Archives: Dong Bang Shin Ki


There has been great concern in Korea after news went out that Dong Bang Shin Ki trio Micky YooChun, Hero JaeJoong and Xiah JunSu had left their Japanese agency.

The news came directly from the trio’s Japanese agency AVEX Trax on 16th September, announcing the temporal suspension of the trio’s Japanese activities. With that on 17th September, the trio’s representative responded on 17th September that the report is an one-sided report from AVEX Trax and have posed the trio with adverse conditions.

Even though this is for the trio’s Japanese activities, there has been great interests coming from Korea’s side as well. This is because currently, we are looking at the ‘new hallyu’ by singers who are promoting in Japanese currently like Big Bang, Supernova, KARA, So Nyeo Shi Dae etc.

In fact, the chance success to be achieved by the girlgroups in the Japanese music scene is said to be high. At the same time, many of these singers’ local agencies are contacting Japanese agencies to work together for these group’s Japanese promotions. And with this news, there have been many eyebrows raised from officials in the Korean music industry.

This comes as somewhat a cold air amidst the Kpop fever going on in the Japanese music scene. Dong Bang Shin Ki has been acknowledged as the representative Korean singer in the Japanese music scene. And many of the Japanese fans of KARA and So Nyeo Shi Dae are also fans of Dong Bang Shin Ki. This would have some impact on the Korean management companies to work with more caution with their groups promoting in Japan.

An official from the music scene commented, “Dong Bang Shin Ki is the pillar and the co-existence to Kpop in Japan. Even though they have not been very active since last year, we cannot underestimate the power that comes with the name in Japan. It is not exaggerating to say that the Kpop ‘new hallyu’ are made by Dong Bang Shin Ki. There are worries that with the 3 leaving the Japanese music scene, it will be like cold wind amidst the hot fever of Kpop in Japan.”

[INFO] 100911 Dong Ban Shin Ki – Most Influential Group of the Post 80’s Generation

The idol groups of a particular era comprise the memories of the fans of that generation. From The Beatles to the Little Tigers, each generation has its own group of idols, so which is the most influential group of the post 80’s generation (meaning people born after the 80s)?

A survey conducted by an online entertainment channel found that Dong Bang Shin Ki, representative of the Hallyu wave, has remained at the top spot. Completely unaffected by the lawsuit between its members and its agency, Dong Ban Shin Ki’s popularity continues to amaze. Super Junior claimed second place. Despite Hangeng’s possibly permanent departure, Super Junior continues to be a classic group which will forever remain in our memories. Taiwanese girl group SHE came third. Their popularity has yet to waver throughout the past 10 years and there is nobody around who doesn’t know at least a few lines to their songs. After SHE was HOT. Even having disbanded for years, what they brought to their audience remain fresh in our memories.

[TRANS] 100723 The Sea of Red Will Forever Remain

The Korean music industry is currently dominated by idol groups, and fans are ecstatic over the return of solo artists Se7en and BoA. Kangta is preparing for his concert in China and Shin Hye Sung is on his way to Shanghai for a fan meet. It seems as though one name is missing: Dong Bang Shin Ki. The five who are known by this name have not appeared together for quite some time now, but just as the sea of red continues to await their return, the five have workeddiligently in return to show their gratitude for the fans’ patience.Kim Junsu, Park Yoochun and Kim Jaejoong will be releasing a new album soon, and behind the scenes clips of their Lotte advertisement were released recently. Yunho participated in a photoshoot for a magazine clad in the latest clothing for the fall, as always, fans were completely enticed by his charm. At the same time, Changmin has finally completed filming for his drama ‘Paradise Ranch’

There will always be a place for the other two…

Forever the leader…

The boy all grown up…

Even though they are separated, the five of them still strive as one. Even though they are no longer able to go by the name ‘Dong Bang Shin Ki’, they will forever remain as ‘Dong Ban Shin Ki’. Jaejoong, Yoochun, Yunho and Changmin are all involved in television dramas in the hope of showing the world a different side of them. Regardless of the result, Micky Yoochun, Hero Jaejoong, Max Changmin and U-Know Yunho gave it their all. Similary, Xiah Junsu conveyed his passion for singing through his participation in the musical ‘Mozart’. In their own different ways, the five of them are communicating the same message, they are telling the world who Dong Bang Shin Ki is.

Doushite is the most beautifully done song and the vocals were excellent. I’ve yet to hear anyone else sing this song and sound even half way as good as Tohoshinki. Always Keep The Faith!!
