Interview translation – April Issue — ARENA37°c (Jaejoong)

March 11, 2010

Releasing “break out” in January and on the 17th of February, they released the “best selection 2010″ their best album that is full with their past hard works. Both albums made a record and was a huge hit.
Tohoshinki is a big group now that needs no explanation of who they are.
Many media have said that their dance and songs have great quality.
That is true, but that’s not the only charm.

Each of them have these characters, how they treat their fans, how they treat the media always with a smile, and always being honest and looking straight forward.

When you make into words it sounds so easy but that is something you can’t do easily. If I exaggerate a little you can say that they are great as a human being. That’s why when you listen to their songs you want to listen to their human nature. When they sing a love song you can see how they understand the story,when they overlap the harmony with their voices, and how they look at each other and care about them. You can’t just label them as people who are good at dancing and singing.

On the 24th of March they are releasing their 30th single CD, the song that was in the best album too, “Toki wo tomete”. It was used as a television commercial song. Many fans were waiting for this song to be released. In the intro, it’s as if Jaejoong is whispering and Junsu’s beautiful but a bit sad voice heats up the song, when it comes to the bridge of the song, Yoochun’s sexy voice, Yunho’s strong voice, and Changmin’s voice that can become high to low makes the song dramatic.

“Stop the time and I want to be near you”.
It has a strong and straight forward feeling that isn’t just beautiful but stable.
Near the end, the piano makes you imagine the sky full of stars. The second chorus part where Jaejoong sings “I can’t say I love you well” 好きだよって上手く言えなくって」 represents Tohoshinki’s many love songs that has the theme “Love that passed by”通り過ぎた恋.

Each sings a phrase that can be used in a movie or a drama. You can’t explain in words but they make the climax natural.

The song after “Toki wo tomete” is Yunho’s “Checkmate”. Yunho sang this at the 2009 concert, it has a sexy dance that is unforgettable. Usually he stands as the leader and looks out for the members, but when he sings the solo song he puts out all of him. When you listen to this song once again with the Tokyo Dome, you want to have fun and enjoy it again.
In addition to that, “Tohoshinki 4th live tour 2009 ~The Secret Code~ Final in Tokyo Dome” blu-ray is going to be released on the 17th of March. You have to check that out.

Also on the same day the DVD with Tohoshinki’s PVs “Tohoshinki video clip collection -the one-” will be released. From “Stay With Me Tonight” to “Break Out ” will be in it, making it a total of 26 clips. Same with the CDs and lives, you can tell the history of tohoshinki.

And on the 24th of March, Tohoshinki’s mix cd with all their great songs is going to be released, their 2nd mix cd “TVXQ NONSTOP-MIX VOL.2″. From their strong songs to sweet ballads, it is a CD that you can enjoy. From all the items that are going to be released, it seems that you will be able to feel the five’s moving steps.
