ATTENTION! PLEASE READ
I would like to dedicate this post and talk about something I’ve read/heard about recently. If there’s anything you disagree w/ or have a different opinion, please feel free to comment. Although I do try to be as objective as possible. Thanks~
There are some talks going around recently about “DBSK Tohoshinki is banned from Music Station in Japan.” Music Station is a major popular music show in Japan that features a lot of great artists. Johnny Entertainment is the biggest and most successful company in Japan, and it practically controls the entire music industry. Whereas you have SM in Korea, you have JE in Japan. So the fact that there’s competition going on b/w those 2 companies is TRUE and INEVITABLE. There are some really great artists under JE, such as, KAT-TUN (Luff them), NewS, Kanjani8, Arashi, and V6……. etc. TVXQ on the other hand, achieved great success ever since they came to japan. Their new single “Why Have I Fallen in Love With You” received many No.1’s on both the Oricon Daily and Weekly Charts. Many wondered WHY they never got invited to Music Station, despite the fat that they are on Music Station’s No.1 list this week. The most likely answer is, DBSK + SM got “banned” from Music Station by JE. Many stated that the way that JE deal with this is very cheap. However, it is reasonable to say that because MS is controlled by JE, why would JE help promote more competitions?? As many of you guys know, in Souther Korea, Japanese songs aren’t allowed in Major TV, Show, Radios……etc. So all in all, despite the cruelty, in order to keep surviving in the music industry, some harsh action has to take place.
Something else to notice. Avex moved the release date for TVXQ’s single earlier so there will be less competition, because they know if they go against a more popular group they won’t rank as high. I’m really glad for their success, and I REALLY REALLY LOVE THEM, i’m trying to be objective to point out that Johnny’s bands got #1 on Oricon Chart regardless of the competition. This week, JE’s Hey!Say!JUMP sold 150k, and Aiko sold 70K, so if TVXQ released their single on their first release date they’ll get ranking #3 instead.
This further proofs that DBSK is a MAJOR SUCCESS in Japan, while Johnny boys is also a MAJOR SUCCESS. both SM + JE trained their artists for greatness, and they’re both very very successful in doing so!!! and I personally loves those 2 companies and their artists to death. So although the 2 companies are rivals and compete a lot, all we fangirls have to do is keep CHEERING FOR OUR FAVORITE ARTISTS!!!
So, PLEASE PLEASE be RESPECTABLE, NO BASHING, but show TVXQ our love and continute to support them in Japan as they attend other music shows!!!!!!!!!
