Following last year, the leading Hallyu group TVXQ will once again be appearing at the Dream Concert.
The “2012 Dream Concert” event organisers said, “Popular group TVXQ will be joining the lineup for this year’s Dream Concert.” “After appearing in the 2008 Dream Concert, TVXQ were busy with activities in and out of the country for the next 3 years, before returning to the Dream Concert stage (last year,) showing a passionate performance of ‘Maximum’ and ‘Keep Your Head Down’.”
TVXQ, who made their debut in 2004 with “Hug”, have been performing on stages in and outside of the country for the past 8 years as the “Hallyu Ambassadors”. Hit songs include “Why (Keep your head down”, “Mirotic”, “Before U Go”, “Maximum” asn others. In 2009, 3 of their members filed a lawsuit against their management agency, with U-Know Yunho and Choikang Changmin remaining to continue to legacy of TVXQ. 2 years later, they made their comeback with a new album “Why (Keep Your Head Down)”, taking over music charts in Korea as well as overseas.
As a representative hallyu group, they have created various stages to meet with foreign fans. Last year on 25-26 November, they attended the “Billboard K-POP Masters” at MGM Grand Arena, Las Vegas, and last month they appeared at the Hong Kong Asian Pop Music Festival 2012. Their single which was released in Japan on 14 March took the no.1 spot on the Oricon daily and subsequently the weekly charts, and created a new record with 10 singles at number 1 on the Oricon chart. This year, they will also be featured in the “SMTown LIVE World Tour 3″ which starts on 20 May at the Honda Center in California.
The 2012 Dream Concert, which TVXQ will be performing at, is in its 17th year. This large-scale Asian music event will have the slogan “Love You, Korea 2012″ in support of the patriotic message used in the Yeosu World Expo 2012.
Organised by the Korea Entertainment Producers’ Association and sponsored by Oilbank, the “2012 Dream Concert” will be held at Seoul’s Sangam-dong World Cup Stadium on 12 May at 6.30 pm KST.
