TVXQ Performs at Tokyo Dome


Dong Bang Shin Gi

Dong Bang Shin Gi, one of South Korea's top pop groups, also known as TVXQ, has achieved its dream of performing at the Tokyo Dome.

The two shows, held Saturday and Sunday, drew more than 50,000 fans. It was the group's last two concerts of its current ``Tohoshinki _ 4th Live Tour 2009 _ The Secret Code'' tour. TVXQ has been touring Japan's nine major cities since May, attracting more than 300,000 spectators.

During the Tokyo concerts, TVXQ fascinated fans by singing its 32 hit songs during the pair of three-hour, 20-minute performances.

The Tokyo Dome is the dream stage where top and popular singers like SMAP, GLAY and Ayumi Hamazaki have performed. South Korean singer Rain and actor-singer Ryu Si-won have also performed at the Tokyo Dome, but this show marked the first time that a South Korean group has performed there.

TVXQ has dreamed of playing at the Tokyo Dome since it arrived in Japan.
