Biography

South Korea (2003 – present)

TVXQ (often stylized TVXQ!), an acronym for Tong Vfang Xien Qi (東方神起), is a South Korean duo (as of December 2010, they were formerly a quintet) formed under SM Entertainment in 2003. In South Korea they are known as Dong Bang Shin Gi (동방신기, DBSK); they were later introduced in Japan as Tohoshinki (東方神起, Tōhōshinki) under the Avex sub-label Rhythm Zone in 2005. Their name translates as “The Rising Gods of the East”.

The name Dong Bang Shin Ki means “The Rising Gods of the East” and for five males (Jaejoong, Yoochun, Yunho, Changmin, and Junsu), this wasn’t just any old name it was a title, a goal to be the top artists in Asia. Debuting in South Korea on December 26, 2003, they quickly became a popular teenage chorus group in their homeland. By the date of their Japanese debut in 2005, Dong Bang Shin Ki had not only made themselves known in Korea as a dance only boyband, but a quintet that had the ability to harmonize, vocalize, and dance to perfection; earning them many praises by many other Korean artists that they would refer to as sunbae’s.

With major success in Korea, Dong Bang Shin Ki made their way to Japan, eager to conquer a foreign land. With that thought in mind, Dong Bang Shin Ki decided that they did not want to come to Japan as Hallyu stars but as Japanese Pop idols and so their struggle began.
