[BLOG] JP Professor Gives High Appraisal to Tohoshinki @ Kohaku

Another file to archive into our Opinions and Blogs by other celebs and notable figures about DBSK.

Japanese Professor Ashida, a critic and writer, rates the Kouhaku performances yearly on his personal blog. The boys are 5th in the ranking with 80 points and he has a high review and regard of them, comparing them with top artists and biggest sellers in Japan, even as Kouhaku was his first time seeing/hearing the boys.

Note that the following ratings/review are Professor Ashida's personal opinion on his blog (not official). TV ratings based on how many people stayed tuned to watch Tohoshinki's performance are on this post.

His review:

『Purple Line~どうして君を好きになってしまったんだろう?』 80点。
Street boysあたりをイメージして作っているのだろうけれども、そこまではいけないにしても日本の男性グループボーカルよりもはるかにいける。

This is a rough translation that someone did about their review.

8) Tohoshinki (First time performer)
Good, Tohoshinki. Its the first time I have listened to them. Songs are good. Certainly better than SMAP.

Even comparing with Exile, Gospellers they are better. Ballad sounds more powerful than Ken Hirai ... etc. Each member has their own individual personality to shine. Their image is probably created to be like Back Street Boys. Their vocals are much better than those Japanese boy groups so far.

第1位:Perfume(初出場)『ポリリズム』 90点。
第2位:倖田來未(4回目)『TABOO』 85点。

I'm glad he realized that. Even if I'm a fan of another JP boygroup, I certainly feel that DBSK has way better vocals than all the boy groups combined in JP, and not just there... but all over the world!!!!!!
