TVXQ – South Korean pop dance, R&B, electronic, rock duo

Today TVXQ’s lineup features two vocalists, U-Know Yunho and Max Changmin. But it wasn’t always this way. For a long time, the group performed with five members in the lineup. TVXQ’s story began back in 2003 when S.M. Entertainment started looking for a new boy band. The initial members were U-Know Yunho, Hero Jaejoong, Max Changmin, Micky Yoochun, and Xiah Junsu. They were chosen during special auditions and while participating in the reality show, Survival Audition – Heejun vs. Kangta, Battle. It took the label a while to find a name for the band. They went through half a dozen of different titles and eventually settled for TVQX.

The group debuted on a show with such artists as BoA and Britney Spears. It presented a hit single “Hug”. Later, the musicians worked with BoA to record “O Holy Night”.

In October 2004, the group released an LP, Tri-Angle. The album climbed to the 35th spot of South Korea Gaon Album Chart and came in 93rd on Japan Oricon Albums Chart. A month later, the new version of the LP TVfXQ! Special Photo Essay In L.A (Storybook) came out. Singles “Hug” and “The Way U Are” became highly commercially successful. Many fans tried to book TVXQ for their private events.
