Filipino fans of K-pop boy band TVXQ (aka DBSK or Dong Bang Shin Ki) are excited about the local release of the group’s The 3rd Asia Tour Concert “Mirotic” Live 2-CD album under Universal Record Philippines.
Spearheading the campaign for fans to buy the album is Cassiopeia Philippines, TVXQ’s fan club in the country.
The release of the album on Dec. 15 is more meaningful for the fans as they will also celebrate on that day the 23rd birthday of TVXQ member Xiah Junsu.
CassPH is planning to celebrate the Nationwide Dong Bang Day on Dec. 15 for the two events.
Fans are encouraged to buy the album and CassPH are planning to send their photos with the album and birthday banners to Junsu through AVEX, a record company which manages TVXQ’s activities and records in Japan.
Fans have been calling record stores Odyssey, Music One, Astroplus, Astrovision, O Music Video and the Landmark to reserve the album.
CassPH is also encouraging fans to text to MYX to make “Mirotic” number one on the music channel.
Universal Records said fans who’ll buy the album will also get free TVXQ posters.
TVXQ is a five-member pop group composed of Xiah Junsu, YoungWoong Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun, U-Know Yunho and Choikang Changmin. The group debuted in 2003 and has a huge following in Korea, Japan and in other Asian countries.
The boy band is the first foreign male group to debut at number one on Japan’s Oricon charts in 2008 with their Japanese single “Purple Line.”
TVXQ has the largest fan club in Korea called Cassiopeia with about 800,000 members.
