World Domination: Mexican magazine features DBSK (after previous coverage from Peru, Chile & Spain)



Yet ANOTHER special feature article on the great phenomenon & sensation called DBSK / Tohoshinki / TVXQ, by another completely far off and non-Asian country that one would never have thought would consider covering Kpop/Jpop.

A weekly Mexican entertainment magazine recently had a large page dedicated to the group, mentioning their immense popularity around the world in countries like Korea, Japan and Taiwan. They even went as far as to suggest that DBSK is ready to conquer Mexico!

Might we suggest ... that DBSK totally take up some Spanish classes and consider a debut in the Latin/South American countries, more so than the US itself seeing how much greater media interest is being shown there. These media outlets are literally calling out to them to come over. Ofcourse, this is all thanks to the hundreds of fans who made their fandom known.

Translation:
For some reason, these boys from South Korea have cause commotion in many places around the world with their pop music and their peculiar style. They sing in their mother tongue, just one or two (N: “una u otra” in this is like some few songs…) or some chorus in English or Japanese, but even with that they are a sensation. The acronym that shapes their name means “Rising gods of the East”. The five young men were choose carefully between hundreds of thousands of people, five years ago, for one big Asian label. All of them are child prodigies in music, and all of them have an interesting life; One of them grew up on EEUU, another lived in extreme poverty. This boys and their fashion look (big hairstyles and dying) are protagonist in hundreds of commercials and advertisements in the Asian continent, they have conquered Japan, China and even Thailand, and are one of the few bands that have been able to bring together more than forty thousand people in one Korean concert. Now with their 4 disk and after training as actors on TV, their next aim is to conquer our country.

Spanish would be hard to learn eh...but perhaps a tour of sorts. It would certainly be interesting...There are no groups like them in South America at the moment and seriously speaking ( I live over here) no singers around here have their level of coolness
