[KPOP] TVXQ TO POSE FOR A WOMEN’S FASHION MAGAZINE
Korean idol group TVXQ has been selected as the first male models to grace the cover of fashion magazine JJ, according to Japanese daily newspaper Sankei Sports on Thursday.
Sankei reported that the boy band last month had shot the cover for the March issue of the famed Japanese magazine, which has been in publication for the past 35 years.
“It is the first time that this magazine has placed a male group on the cover,” an official at Sankei was quoted as saying. He added that the magazine will also feature a 100-question survey which reveals personal details regarding the TVXQ members.
TVXQ, who debuted in 2004 with album “Hug”, is one of the most successful K-pop acts in Asia. They reportedly have the largest fanbase in the world and have enjoyed great success in the Japanese music industry in particular. Last year, they became the first foreign artist to top the Oricon singles charts six times with their 27th single “Share the World/We are!”
There has been speculation about the group disbanding however, with three of the five members — Xiah Junsu, Hero Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun — being involved in a legal dispute with their agency SM Entertainment since July 2009.
For the time being, they are scheduled to release a new Japanese single titled “Breakout” on January 27 and their first best album titled “Best Selection 2010” next month.
