DBSK and SHINee
The popular K-pop group TVXQ! will be releasing their fourth album throughout Asia, starting with Korea on the 24th. After bringing the public their third album, "O-Union," in September 2006, the group spent two years working in Japan. The fourth studio album signals the return of TVXQ! to Korea.
"The phenomenal transformation of TVXQ! was released in a teaser and now, people are more excited than ever about their fourth album," said an SM Entertainment representative. "Many album labels have been inquiring about its trans-continental release," he continued.
TVXQ! dominated the Korean music scene in 2006, as they swept up multiple awards before flying over to work in Japan. The group's comeback to Korea is preceded by three consecutive first place rankings on Japan's Oricon Music Charts, as well as a record-breaking 390,000 tickets sold during their one and a half year Asia Tour.
