TVXQ! “Catch Me” World Tour, Live in Malaysia, 18 May 2013
Kuala Lumpur, 15 May 2013 – Kuala Lumpur shall soon welcome the return of ‘K-Pop royalty’, TVXQ!, the biggest alternative Korean pop band in Asia. With the performance they’ve all been waiting for just around the corner, Malaysian Cassiopeias are brimming with excitement – and rightly so! TVXQ! ‘Catch Me’ Live World Tour concert organiser, JPM Music, has now been joined by the band’s production crew (all the way from South Korea) and are in the process of building the stage that will be unlike any other stage used in TVXQ’s Asian tour so far.
More than RM1.5 million has been invested in the development of this stage which is specially designed for the Malaysian fans to enjoy an intimate concert experience. The layout of the stage and audience seating allows a great number of fans to feel that they are getting up-close-and-personal with Max and U-Know as they rock the stadium with their electrifying dance moves and soulful sounds.
This performance will mark TVXQ!’s third appearance in Malaysia since the band was formed in 2003 and it is also their first time performing in Malaysia after an absence of 6 years. Their break from the limelight has not left the group’s following to diminish and in fact, their fan base in Malaysia has continued to grow over the years. So whilst many of the thousands attending the concert this weekend will be long time followers of TVXQ!, there will also be many new fans who have been won over by the boys’ previous successes and earlier music.
Fans attending the concert which will be held at Stadium Malawati, Shah Alam on 18th May 2013, are advised to take note that the concert time has been changed to 6.00pm. For those who are still keen but have yet to make arrangements – tickets are available (but in limited supply) and there’s just 3 days left before the big day so don’t miss out!

The revenues recorded by SM Entertainment’s artistes in the past 3 years have garnered huge attention recently.
According to the electronic disclosure system of the Financial Supervisory Service (FSS) on March 12th, through the disclosure data of SM Entertainment’s investment prospectus dated March 6th, it was revealed that Girls’ Generation have recorded sales revenue of 17.003 billion won in 2009, 30.044 billion won in 2010 and 21.737 billion won up to the 3rd quarter of 2011.
From 2009 to the 3rd quarter of 2011, the girls have garnered a total revenue amounting to 68.811 billion won. If 4th quarter of 2011 were to be included, it would have surpassed 70 billion won. The figure would go beyond the 100 billion won mark if Girls’ Generation’s Japanese activities were also taken into account.
Girls’ Generation’s total sales revenue of 68,811 billion won accounts for 42% out of the total revenue of 161.954 billion won among SM’s top 5 artistes (Girls’ Generation, Super Junior, TVXQ, SHINee and f(x)) within the past 3 years.
On January 17th, a representative of fashion magazine ‘W Korea’ said, “Artists from SM Entertainment will be having a 2-day pictorial shoots from January 19th to 21st for French brand ‘Carven’ in a designated studio”.
The artists who will be participating in the shoots are YoonA and Seohyun, SHINee’s JongHyun and Taemin, f(x)’s Sulli and Krystal as well as SM’s upcoming new group, EXO. For this shoot which will be aired live on YouTube in real-time, the artists will be sporting the modern elegance concept.
A staff in charge of the pictorial shoot said, “The artists’ fresh and new look can be seen in real-time through a live channel, giving viewers a new experience as if they are together with us on the set”.
Apparently, some of the Girls’ Generation trademarks are not owned by SM Entertainment but instead, by some other parties.
According to SM Entertainment on December 19th, out of Girls’ Generation’s trademarks, 9 categories of items, which include clothing, food products, beauty products, etc, are not registered under SM Entertainment but are privately owned by other parties.
At the time when Girls’ Generation first debuted, only trademarks related to their entertainment activities were registered but items in categories which pose controversies and problems at the moment, such as beauty products, clothing and others were not registered under SM Entertainment.
As a preemptive measure, SM Entertainment has filed a trademark application for Girls’ Generation’s abbreviation ‘Soshi’ and ‘少女時代’ on the 9 categories of products. However, to reclaim the unique trademark of ‘Girls’ Generation’ under their ownership, SM Entertainment is continuously seeking the advice of their legal officers.

On August 17th, Samsung Securities stated that the rise of SM stock prices in the 2nd quarter this year was due to SNSD’s success in the Japanese market, which has gone beyond expectation.
In the 2nd half of the year, the girls are also the main contributing factor in keeping the profit-earning momentum going and SM’s stock price is expected to rise up to 33,000 won per unit.
Kong TaeHyun of Samsung Securities said, “SNSD’s successful advancement into the Japanese market through the sales of their Japanese album which has gone beyond expectation, gives a positive indication for the spread of Kpop in the future. Under overseas management, the increased revenue in overseas market has strengthened the position of the agency’s artistes”.
It was forecasted that SM’s 2nd half earnings would exceed the earnings in the 2nd quarter. This is because from the 4th quarter to the 1st quarter of 2012, the impact of the release of SNSD’s new album, solo concert tour and the SM Town concerts in Tokyo this September would be reflected in the earnings.
