Big Hit Entertainment Founder Bang Shi Hyuk's Comments in the Past About TVXQ Have Surfaced Among Netizens, "TVXQ is World Class, They Will Always Be The Only One..."

TVXQ, who was formed in 2003 and debuted in 2004 had become a very hot issue. From general public recognition to fandom, TVXQ's explosive popularity increased the interest in K-Pop idol groups and kicked off the second generation in K-Pop industry.


TVXQ, called as the gods of K-Pop, is a pioneer group that cause great influence on K-Pop worldwide. Most importantly, they paved the way for K-Pop idols to enter Japanese market which makes the biggest contribution for K-Pop industry. The lawsuit and the split of TVXQ (2009), who dominated the second generation, has gone down in history as the biggest scandal in the industry. The second generation ended 2 years after TVXQ's split and hiatus since the industry became stagnant.


They are literally the idol of idols! Many celebrities have expressed their admiration for the 5 talented boys. The famous productor and Big Hit Entertainment founder Bang Shi Hyuk is one of them! Comments that he made in the past about TVXQ have surfaced among netizens.


Here is the official news of Bang Shi Hyuk's comments on MBC Everlon:


October 24th, 2009
"On the October of 23 MBC Everlon's 'Star The Secret', TVXQ became a topic as the superstars in domestic and abroad.


Bang Shi Hyuk expressed his thoughts about the best idol group TVXQ.
Bang Shi Hyuk expressed, "TVXQ is simply a perfect group. All in all, their musical quality is extremely high. World Class."


He continued, "All the members are good looking, all the members have strong vocal ability and performance. Their level is so high. From this point of view, TVXQ will always the only one in the world."


Bang Shi Hyuk then added, "I saw TVXQ for the first time at a large video platform . They had just debuted. Everyone had been talking about them and their talents. I saw their performance, then I was shocked."


Furthermore, Bang Shi Hyuk guested on tvN's 'Baek Ji-Young's People Inside' on the March 3 in 2011. During the broadcast, he stated TVXQ was the best group.

He's not wrong though. Honestly DBSK was so untouchable, the only thing that could stop them was the "dismantling" of the group. We might have some great groups this generation, but I'm sad newer K-Pop fans will never know of them and the previous and I'm glad I became a fan back then too.

DB5K is legendary. They did not even get to promote with much social media at that time. Each individually strong members are combined to produce a perfect group. They have all the qualities an idol group should have. Although I started liking Kpop in 2013, the 2nd generation (DB5K, SS501, SuJu, etc.) was what brought me into Kpop and they will forever have a place in my heart.

even until now it's still difficult to reach the standards made by DBSK. ALL the members are individually great and especially when they go together. 12 years being a kpop fan and I have yet to see a group who can match their skills. perhaps BTOB is the closest I can think of, but still not quite

I would have thought that Shinee is the closest comparison to DBSK. Big Bang are also amazing in their own right, but for different reasons. But I can see a lot of similarities between Shinee and DBSK.

Things newbie Koop fans think:

1.There was no competition:

There was a much bigger competetion than today but TVXQ was another level. You probably forget that SS501, Super Junior, Bigbang, Shinhwa were active at the same time with TVXQ.

2.BoA paved the way in Japan:

Definetely wrong. BoA debuted in Japan as a local singer in 2002 and got popular immediately. That time in Japan, solo female singers were trendy and general public didn't even know she was Korean. In 4 years she lost her popularity. Clearly she didn't do anything for Kpop. TVXQ debuted in Japan in 2005 and faced hard situations like racism. Their first singles and album sold a few bil. After their success, 1 year after them, all Kpop groups started entering Japanese market one by one. Even Japanese media never mention BoA as the pioneer of Kpop boom in Japan.

3.They didn't compose their songs:

They actually did but SM don't let most of their artists publish their songs because they are afraid of their artists being a brand name and have trouble in the future. Just go and check how many songs JYJ composed, even produced ALONE. Also composing a song isn't hard for people in the industry. There are good songs and bad ones. Even if a song is a bad, it gets hyped by fangirls so np. But what about talents? Their prior job is to sing and TVXQ was/still have no rival in terms of it. Junsu and Jaejoong are one the best vocals. Whats more, they are all good af singing and dancing. Now you see groups, 2 of them is good at singing but bad at dancing, main dancer cant sing or rap etc. This is why TVXQ is different. Plus, your faves wish to be their back vocalist.

4.Kpop scene now is better:

Thank TVXQ. Kpop was going down without them and they increased the interest for idol groups. Thanks to them, groups today can do convert tours in Japan and in bigvenues. Also the standarts are not the same.

There was no social media to contact people worldwide and promote worldwide for free.

When TVXq 5 was active, the other grouos had no chance to shine. If the 5 had stayed together, today you would see them on top again.

DBSK will always be the greatest group of all time. They were perfect as a group. Have you seen their live concerts. They had no weakness. They can all sing and dance at a very high level. They are all good looking and talented in other aspects. They even did an op and ed for ONE PIECE. That is just crazy.

Agreed. All 5 are goodlooking (you just have preference) but they were pretty equal. All of there vocals were pretty amazing, they would have all been lead and main vocals in other groups. They're dancing was equally amazing. No group has met that standard since. Every group always have week links. Even my beloved Big Bang. DBSK was an amazing group.

He have good taste. I have been into kpop for a long time but still yet to come across a kpop group where all members can sing, even the visual. The boys can sing acapella yet dance like a machine. They are also strong variety even though sm never let them do much variety at all. They have the full package. it's too bad, due to sm crap management, they split so quickly. if they were still together today, they would have made so much more money.

DBSK was the one who brought me into the kpop scene back in 2006. I found them randomly through youtube, and the first video I watched was Rising Sun. It was so different than the western music I listened to, so I was hooked right away even though I didn't understand a word and I couldn't even point to where SKorea was on a map lol (obs it's changed since then). It has been 12 years now and I still have not found a group that came close to DBSK's talents. This is a group with 5 whole-packaged members. Each member could be the main vocalist, dancer, center, performancer, entertainer... etc. I feel like it was a group of 5 soloist performing together. Groups nowadays, have people who are either good at singing, bad at dancing, or good at dancing, bad at singing. But not DBSK. Even the weakest singer in the group (who is not weak at all), which is Yunho, can be the main vocalist if you put him in other groups. I was so heartbroken when they separated that I could not love any groups after them. And even though now I'm an ARMY, and is starting to enjoy other groups, I am forever a Cassie at heart first <3

They were the first Kpop group I ever loved and I still love and miss T5XQ. They were phenomenal, very talented. BTS was the first group after them I loved just as much but they are definitely great in different ways and not comparable. People really should stop doing that. And people new to Kpop shouldn't act as if they could possibly know how much the group has done for the genre!

You, dear, are an ignorant little troll.
For your information, Yunho & Changmin STILL perform as TVXQ, and sell out arenas. Junsu regularly wins Best Voice of KPop yearly. Kim Jae Joong - OMG - total visual, just put out another album, has finally been 'allowed' (by SM stopping their illegal blackballing of JYJ) to have a Korean variety show :D and does dramas. Mickie Yoochun despite a regrettable scandal (and possibly a not so nice personality) is a wonderful actor. They are LEGENDS, dear. AMAZING performers.

Madam do you have any idea about the kpop industry during '90s or 2000s??? I am sure you don't have any idea. "and no competition at that time. Like less than 10 boy groups?" So let me tell you, there were many groups. If you haven't heard of them then it doesn't mean that they never existed...There were other kpop groups too.. You should at least know the earlier days of kpop before becoming a fan of new groups.

you are probably a young fan. As someone who has been in the kpop scene since 2006, the scene back then was the era of soloists. DBSK became big during that era. There were also very successful groups active back then, like Big Bang, Shinhwa (although Shinhwa is more first generation), Super Junior, SS501, Ft Island.... etc.

They PAVED the way to the Japanese market for all kpop groups. This is why all kpop group needs to look up to DBSK because without DBSK, no one now would be able to promote in Japan!
