[TRANS] 100108 “They Did Not Divide 3-2 At Kouhaku Rehearsal”

“They did not divide into 3-2 at Kouhaku rehearsal,”
said Komai Chikako, YTV Miyaneya reporter

Komai Chikako is an entertainment reporter who works for a YTV’s program called Miyaneya, the one that Tohoshinki made an appearance on the day of Best Hits Song Festival. On 1/8, when Miyaneya was having a discussion about Tohoshinki’s disbanding rumor on TV, Komai Chikako voiced out what she had seen at Kouhaku’s backstage.

“People have been saying that their dressing room was divided by a curtain, and that they came back to the dressing in 3-2 groups at Kouhaku rehearsal; but according to what I saw with my own eyes, there was no such thing as 3-2. They were together as 5 all the times; and even when they had to line up, they didn’t split it into 3-2. The 3 who are in dispute with their company right now entered the space between the other 2, and they lined up as 5. The media has been reporting that Jaejoong had an expression that looked like he did not want to answer their questions, but at that time, he was wearing a hood over his head, so it was hard to see his expression…” [T/N: what she meant was that since Jaejoong’s facial expression could not be seen clearly, the media just assumed that he was in a bad mood]

[TRANS] 091231 Tohoshinki At The Kouhaku Rehearsal

Kouhaku: Tohoshinki appeared as 5, they held rehearsals shutting out the media

The Korean dance and vocal group Tohoshinki appeared as 5 in December 30, for the rehearsal for the year end NHK “Kouhaku”. It was a very tight security, all the media was shut out. We media were able to see the rehearsal from the monitor screen. The 5 members hardly looked at each other while singing “Stand by U”.

Tohoshinki’s activities in Korea has stopped since Jaejoong (23), Yoochun (23), and Junsu (22) had filed against their Korean management company SM Entertainment regarding their exclusive contract in late July. The five performed together after 3 months’ susupension in “Best Hits Music Festival 2009” at “Kobe World Hall” in November. On this occasion, the 3 members who have filed the suit and Yunho (23) & Changmin (21) traveled on different planes.

Other than the Kouhaku, the five will perform in “Japan Record Award” (TBS) on Dec 30, and also scheduled to have a live performance in the “CDTV SPECIAL! New Year’s Eve Live 2009 → 2010”. Though they have cancelled the fan club meeting scheduled to be held in Janauary, they will release a new single “BREAK OUT!” on January 27. They will also release their first best album on February 17. Their activities afterwards in Japan are not fixed yet.

T/N: There were similar information posted in other sites (from different sources), but since this is from the credible source Mainichi Shimbun (one of the largest daily newspapers in Japan) website, I’ve translated the article again.

[TRANS] 100101 ‘We Want To Keep Doing Our Best!’ – TVXQ

The popular Korean group Tohoshinki, who is in the midst of having break-up rumors, performed on “60th NHK Kouhaku Utagassen” on the last day of the year, and later appeared on TBS’ special program “CDTV SPECIAL! New Year’s Eve Premium Live 2009→2010”. When being asked by MC TAKAHIRO (EXILE) what their aspiration for this year is, Jaejoong stopped a moment and only said, “We want to keep doing our best like last year.”

After the three members of Tohoshinki – Junsu, Jaejoong, and Yoochun – filed a lawsuit to request for a provisional disposition to terminate the exclusive contract with their managing company, there have been rumors of them breaking up floating around. There are also rumors that the members cannot communicate normally and that their actions are being observed. However, in fact, on the rehearsal day of Kouhaku, it has been reported that the three members and Yunho, Changmin returned to their waiting room in two separate groups.

After performing “Stand by U” at Kouhaku, they chose to not answer the press corps’ questions. At CDTV, they only said, “Good evening everyone, we are Tohoshinki” and sang the song which contained a message in its lyrics.
