    [TRANS] STEADY April 2010 Issue

    Post by natsunohanabi on Mon 22 Mar - 21:32

    *this is the magazine issue*

    5 sets of footsteps, marking their
    5th year since their debut. From their Japan debut, Tohoshinki have
    grown to be top stars in Asia. Behind their glory, they put in loads of
    hard work, fought past countless obstacles, and at the same time, they
    gave everyone courage and strength.

    "Out of their Japan
    activities, 'Best Selection 2010' was filled with their countless
    thoughts and love." - Takeiti Takako

    Fans of Tohoshinki, as well
    as those who know them through 'Best Selection 2010', from the moment
    our magazine started selling, everyone should have been reminiscing your
    own memories while listening to the album repeatedly.

    With each
    change of track, there is always a strangely clear scene of Tohoshinki's
    image during the time when the song was released crossing their minds.
    This is the strength of music.

    This maybe the album's charm. I
    (T/N: the author of the article) am also listening to the album and
    reminiscing that particular scene while writing this article.

    first met them in 2004, when they were in their teens. The first
    question of the interview was "What is your favorite song?" Yunho chose
    'Hug'. They sung the english version of the song during their first
    visit to Japan. But in this album, the song is recorded in Japanese.
    This being their debut song in Korea, they are probably most comfortable
    singing it in Korean as the 5 of them had a hard time singing the song
    in Japanese. Holding a note filled with Korean explanations and Korean
    pronunciation sounds of the Japanese lyrics, the scene of them practice
    singing a language that they were not familiar with still seems so clear
    in my head.

    Then, they were all into a state of depression where
    they have to stay in Japan for a long period of time, spending everyday
    studying Japanese, until the third single , "When we are
    able to tell the difference and the meaning of using 'で' and 'が' in a
    line from the lyrics, '君と夢で会えたら それだけ'で'いい それだけ'が' いい', I like Japanese!"
    - Jaejoong

    With such
    emotions, they were able to understand the meanings of each sentence
    when minor changes of words were used.

    While listening to this song, the happenings of a scene when
    Tohoshinki were filming came to mind.

    At that time, Jaejoong, who injured his leg during dance
    practise, needed to use crutches to walk. There were photos of other
    members helped him throughout the whole ordeal. Due to bad blood
    circulation because of the injury, which caused swelling and pain,
    Jaejoong also had to tolerate it all and force wear the shoes prepared
    for the photoshoot. The interactions amongst them were all caught on the

    The summer after
    that, it was Yunho's turn to get injured on the leg during TVXQ's
    Malaysia concert, which led to his absence in Tohoshinki's performance
    in the A-Nation tour then.

    "That was around the time of the 7th single, . was
    our first single that got into the Oricon Weekly Charts! 6th! We were
    all very happy about it. But it was a pity that Yunho hyung was unable
    to perform with us on stage." - Junsu

    After every A-Nation performance, 4 of them will
    always give Yunho, who was admitted in Korea's hospital, an overseas
    call, telling him everything that happened during the performance.

    to the voices of the members gave me lots of strength. Really want to
    join them… It was really very hard, at that time.

    there was such an experience, when the 5 of us reunited after a long
    time to perform (8th single, released Nov'2006), I felt happiness
    when we performed together." - Yunho

    was really a very difficult period of time for Yunho. But it was these
    hardships that brought Tohoshinki a more profound friendship.

    such situations, Tohoshinki attracted many with a very deep dance song,
    . Their popularity in Japan started to rise. At the same time,
    due to their Korea activities, they became very busy.

    's PV shooting took place in Korea
    due to their busy schedule.

    Wanting to repay all those who
    gave the 5 of them love and happiness, they continued to work hard at
    any time, at anywhere.

    "It is our mission to work hard in
    order not to let those who had hopes and faith in us disappointed." -

    With their continuous hard work
    and their fans to back them up, the single

    DBSK has worked really really hard throughout the years, learning a new language and singing in it. And they are really great!
