[TRANS] 100225 Japanese Idol NEWS “Scared Of TVXQ”


Johnny’s Entertainment idol group NEWS has decided to postpone the release of their new single ‘さくらガール(Sakura Girl)’, which was scheduled to be out on March 24th, by one week.

A representative of the Japanese Records Association analyzed the situation and said in an interview with ‘Saijo Woman’ that “Korea’s top idol group TVXQ is releasing a new single ‘時ヲ止メテ(Please Stop Time)’ on the same day,” And “It can be analyzed that NEWS moved their release date because they are afraid to meet TVXQ on the charts.”

He also said, “NEWS holds the record of 11 consecutive albums ranking first on the Oricon Charts ever since their debut. It can be seen that they fear this record might be broken if they release their single the same day TVXQ does,” and “If it had been Arashi, who ranks first in overall annual sales, or KAT-TUN, who sold 350,000 copies of their single ‘Love yourself〜君が嫌いな君が好き〜’ that was used as the main theme song of drama “Sassy girl Snako”, they would have gone up against TVXQ but this decision was a wise one.”


But despite their soaring popularity, they seem to be showing a weak side in front of ‘TVXQ’ and fans felt upset at this saying things such as, “This makes me feel complicated.” and “Why are they pushing back their release date?”

On the other hand, NEWS’ ‘恋のABO’ that was released last year has sold an accumulative 234,000 copies. ‘Saijo Woman’ says “These sales may reflect the best of NEWS’ capabilities.”

So as they're FINALLY releasing a new single, I really want them to go to number 1, because JFC THEY FREAKING DESERVE IT.

Also...Ryo? Scared?

Edit: OT: Idky people think NEWS can't sing, have you HEARD their acapellas?!

i don't know what tot think about it and actually don't think i have much to say about it... except... *aaaaaaawwwwww* at Ryo chan's gif. ^^
I actually love DBSK and... i don't know much about NEWS (i'm more a kinda Ryo chan fan) but... ah, like it was said before, no competition, make love, not war :))) Peace. I like both. I wish luck to both of them.

omg a Ryo + Junno + DBSK fan, there's more of me out there I see♥

... All I can say is OMFG I AM EXCITED FOR NEWS' NEW SINGLE~~~~~~~~~ :DDDD
They're my favorite side-fandom! :Db

And anyway, it seems more like the Jimusho is scared and not NEWS themselves.
It's understandable... NEWS is one of the least popular Johnny's groups.
They're too underloved because of their past...

Hadn't the March 31st date been announced like a loong time ago? Idk, I marked the release of NEWS's new single as March 31, not 24, and that was like, right when I found out it was being released at all. *shrug*

It's the Korean news just trying to stir up some shit and rivalry without checking the fact of when the change in date was actually announced.

What am I looking at...?

Maybe their strategy is this:

Let TVXQ top the charts for that week and then NewS will take them down the next week.

This article kind of irritates me, because it makes it sound like it was the boys themselves who decided to push the release date back. Pretty sure it was JE who decided to do that, not NEWS themselves. >_>

And really, if NEWS isn't doing well sales-wise, it's JE's own fault. The marketing is all up to them, and I mean, come on, it's been how long since their last singe? No wonder NEWS doesn't have the kind of popularity they used to have--JE hasn't done anything with them in forever. It's hardly their fault.

Ha ha ha this so freakin funny. I love how ppl put hate comments up about Tohoshinki, get this through your thick brains. THSK nor NEWS said anything about being scared of one another.

Its F**kin JE who's scared of losing. Ah~ that felt good. Not a big fan of NEWs but I think Ryo is kinda hot XD

Also that spartan pic was not cool man not cool. Should I pic spam Jaejoongie just to be fair? I think I should!!!
classystar 25th-Feb-2010 11:52 pm (UTC)
Be my guess dear..
strawberryparty 25th-Feb-2010 09:26 pm (UTC)

honestly, i don't care about all this tohoshinki stuff. i'm just happy about the new single. also, this happens all the time with movies. i can't even remember how many movies changed their release dates because they didn't want to compete with harry potter.
arisa_draconis 25th-Feb-2010 09:34 pm (UTC)
Scared? YOU WISH.

They're trying to get all JE releases to be number one in a week!

Either way I'm happy we have a new single.
