This is kinda saddening to watch (but actually very exciting as well) since everybody knows why the guys of TVXQ are looking very awkward on stage. On a scale of 1-10 based on awkwardness, this is pretty up there, probably an 8 or 8.7. It sucks.
They are definitely together under one roof, but there’s a certain divide and a heavy atmosphere that makes it feel otherwise. omgkpop has released an article on a few rules that SME has enforced for all 5 members to follow:
Below are the conditions that SM gave Avex and DBSK – only if they were met would the band be able to perform in Japan.
3. Only Yunho and Changmin are allowed to respond during an interview.
Rule number 2 is noticeably the harshest of the three. It really emphasizes the chasms between Jaejoong, Yoochun and Junsu, and SME. I have a nasty feeling that TVXQ/DBSK and their music are stretching the limits and will crumble under the pressure if their legal disputes aren’t settled immediately.
Always keep the faith!
