DBSK/Tohoshinki invited to Kohaku: Japan's Most-Watched Music Concert

In many interviews, the boys had mentioned that it was their dream to be invited to Kohaku, the biggest annual Japanese end-of-the-year music show, boardcasted on New Year's Eve by NKH on radio and TV. Lots of big entertainers are invited to this concert and split into teams. In the end, viewers can vote for the team they believe should win. Sounds pretty exicting!

According to Wikipedia:
Literally "Red and White Song Battle," the program divides the most popular music artists of the year into competing teams of red and white. The "red" team made up of all female artists , while the "white" team is all male. The honor of performing on Kōhaku is strictly by invitation, so only the most successful J-Pop artists and enka singers can perform. In addition to the actual music performances, the costumes, hair-styles, makeup, dancing, and lighting are also important. Even today, a performance on Kōhaku is said to be a big highlight in a singer's career because of the show's large reach.


Finally, it was revealed today that DBSK will be attending!
CONGRATULATIONS BOYS!

you get a lot of viewers on your sight, so im asking you if you could research the anti-fan who attacked changmin at the airport. there are some clips at allkpop. im asking if you could also post the news on your site and ask any cassiopeia if they can give you any information. it is good to know if an anti attacked him so we can figure things out. i heard it was a VIP (big bang fan) who attacked him but its not certain. but if its true, we should have a little respect for big bang because the fan apparently had something in mind.... but theres like many stories.

if you could, that would be great. please keep us informed :)

Nice! And yay where can we watch it ...? Oh hoho...
to anonymous.. I think it would be hard to find out about that. I mean I seriously don't understand why are there anti-fans.. If you don't like them, you don't have to hurt them.. just go away...

omg i know right! i hate it how antis use violence to hurt other people.... i mean if they died, they would be charged for murder and more people would have less respect for the fan group their in. its just dissapointing to see people act like this.. is this what the world has come too!???!
