TVXQ! Wow with First Headlining Concert in L.A.

TVXQ!, known as the “Kings of K-Pop!” and holders of the Guinness Record for Most Photographed Celebrities in the world, performed at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles on July 5, 2013. Although the successful Asian band had performed with the 2012 SMTown concert in Anaheim, California with several of SMTown’s top Korean Pop (K-Pop) acts, this was the first time TVXQ! headlined in the U.S. The band is on its “Catch Me” world tour, which began in Seoul in November 2012, went to Hong Kong, Beijing, Kuala Lumpur and Japan. Following L.A., the tour continues to Santiago, Chile and Shanghai, China.

For a band that is not a household name in the U.S., a surprising number of non-Korean fans were in attendance. TVXQ! did not fail to deliver a powerful performance for their fans. A mixture of pounding dance beats and soulful ballads, the concert alternated between highly choreographed dance performances, video presentations and interactions with the audience in English and Korean. Several of their encore songs were in Japanese, a testimony to their eight years of performing and living in Japan. tj
