[Spazz] Happy 4th Debut Anniversary, Tohoshinki!!!

Do you remember that today is Tohoshinki’s 4th debut anniversary (for their Japan career)??? ^_____^

If you forget, then don’t worry. We almost, as well XD

Why don’t we make a flashback of their journey in Japan up til now??
Plus, I think it will make a good prologue for the upcoming “The Secret Code Tour” on May 4th which SYC calls it as “Road to Dome” tour 😉


April 27th 2005
Dong Bang Shin Ki made their debut stage in Japan under AVEX label.


From a super idol, to no one. Moreover, being surrounded by ppl who spoke language they didnt even understand~ All the five boys had their hardest and depression time.

Two singles were released soon after their debut stage: Stay With Me Tonight and Somebody to Love. None of them got good response from Japanese public. While ironically, not so long after that, when they returned to Korea and launched their second album Rising Sun, the 2nd album became 4th best selling album in 2005. You can imagine the huge gap of their popularity in Korea and Japan.

Before the year ended, Tohoshinki made their third attempt in Japan by releasing My Destiny.

The release of Tohoshinki’s 4th single Asu Wa Kuru Kara (March 8th) and first Japan album: Heart, Mind and Soul on March 22nd, 2006.


The album entered ORICON chart for 4 weeks at the highest rank was at #25. Asu Wa Kuru Kara was the first Tohoshinki’s song which was used as soundtrack (One Piece). Month later, the boys didnt give up trying to make Japanese to look at them by releasing 5th single: Rising Sun/Heart, Mind and Soul.

Tohoshinki’s popularity was slowly but sure, increasing. Especially after they held the first concert: Heart, Mind and Soul at ZEPP Tokyo.







The most stunning perf of Heart, Mind and Soul


And that was proved by the sales of Tohoshinki 6th and 7th single Begin and Sky, respectively where Sky finally made their way to enter top 10 ORICON chart, at 6th.


ORICON was becoming friendly to them as their next single Miss You/O Sei Han Go debuted at 3rd in ORICON, thus being the first single which entered top 3 ORICON.


Step by Step was released, followed by Choosey Lover. Tohoshinki also launched their 2nd Japan album Five in The Black on March 14th and was debuted at #10 in ORICON.


Tohoshinki made their first invitation to MTV Video Music Awards Japan, eventhough they’re still recognized as “Korean group” as in this event, Tohoshiki took “Best Buzz Asia in Korea” award home.


Debut stage at Budoukan on July 29th, 2007.


Tohoshinki held their 2nd Japan tour Five in The Black with Budoukan hall as their final stage in Tokyo. One of the most prestigious venues in Japan asides from Tokyo Dome. All boys but JaeMin shared some tears at their lastest performance “Proud” that night.





From June to December 2007, Tohoshinki released a string of five singles: Lovin’ You, Summer: Summer Dream/Song for You/Love in the Ice, Shine / Ride On, Forever Love and Together.

Summer: Summer Dream/Song for You/Love in the Ice reached #2 on the ORICON, making it the group’s highest-charting Japanese single (even until now, if only “Share The World/We Are!” could surpass it). TVXQ also collaborated with label-mate Kumi Koda for her thirty-eighth single, Last Angel, which was used as the theme song for the Japanese release of Resident Evil: Extinction.


First time topped the ORICON!!! 😀
yes. With the great single Purple Line! Purple Line made the first history in Tohoshinki’s career by topping Japan’s most famous music chart, ORICON, therefore making them first foreign male group to have a number-one single in Japan.

T” album released on January 22nd 2008–debuted at 4th in ORICON weekly,


followed by “TRICK project” which revealed the strength of each member’s vocal as they took turn in being the lead vocal in the 5 singles released: “Two Hearts” (Changmin), “Runaway” (Yoochun), “If?!” (Junsu), “Close to You” (Yunho), and “Keyword” (Jaejoong).

T album’s sales was supported by Tohoshinki’s 3rd Japan live tour with the same title whose finale was held in Saitama Super Arena on May 6th, 2008.


Out of the blue, Jaejoong–one of the toughest member in Toho–shared tears during Love in The Ice performance.




Ever since “Purple Line” entered #1, Tohoshinki makes 4 more consecutives ORICON winnings with Beautiful You/Sennen Koi Uta, Doushite Kimi wa Suki Ni Natta Shimattan Darou?, MIROTIC, and Bolero/Kiss The Baby Sky/Wasurenaide.

At the end of 2008, Tohoshinki was officially approved by Japan music industry as one of the best groups in Japan by being invited to Japan’s most prestigious event: “Kouhaku Uta Gassen“. Tohoshinki’s team — White team — won that night.




Tohoshinki is a big name now in Japan with more than 10,000 members in their official Japan fanclub, Bigeast.

They made two of their songs in the latest single Share The World/We Are! as One Piece’s opening soundtrack, and after failing to reach #1 in ORICON for Survivor (yet still got #3), this single crowned the boys again as ORICON king at the release date.

They’re going to take the next step this year, debuting in the greatest TOKYO DOME for the 4th Japan live tour, The Secret Code.




They’ve been going through a lot of things in 4 years in a foreign country. Happiness as well as sadness~ It’s so touching to see how they’re growing slowly but sure to the top–a success story without failure experience? boring.

Like one Japanese grams said when she’s asked why she loved Tohoshinki, she said

“They’re tough. They tried so hard to speak Japanese, tried to learn our culture. At first, other than their music, I felt like supporting them for their endless effort to success in Japan. But as they also present us good music, that makes me love them even more.”


we all here love you, baby~ unconditionally. Even when your hair is bad *cough* Yoochun *cough* or when you look not in the best appearance of you… *cough* Yoochun *cough*.. or when you’re mad at us for stalking to close… *cough* Yoochun *cough*

  10. I’m such a bad fan coz i didn’t know that today is tohoshinki 4th year anniversary in japan. I only know their anniversary is in april. GOMEN NASAII!!!!

    Back then, they only knew little japanese words n barely known by japanese people. They once mentioned in star show that they ever thought of giving up their career in japan. But they didn’t, and they keep working hard in japan.

    Then tohoshinki’s popularity is slowly increasing in japan. They’ve even made it into oricon chart, invited into kohaku at the end of 2008. They also will be performing the concert at tokyo dome in july… Such a huge achievement for tohoshinki.

    Due to their hard work, now they are one of the most known group in japan.

    I’m so proud being their fan. I’m happy for knowing dbsk. And i’ll be always loving them.

    Happy 4th debut anniversary in japan!!!
