TVXQ invited once again to Kohaku, but not Big Bang

Posted by Nez

Last year, TVXQ / DBSK / Tohoshinki was invited to Kohaku and this year they've been invited once again. For those that don't know what Kohaku is and how it's such a big deal, here's an excerpt from wikipedia which explains it pretty well:

"Kohaku Uta Gassen more commonly known as simply Kohaku, is an annual music show on the New Year's Eve produced by Japanese public broadcaster NHK and broadcast on both television and radio, nationally and internationally by NHK's networks and some overseas (mainly cable) broadcasters which bought the program... 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 or akagumi is composed of all female artists (or groups with female vocals), while the "white" team or shirogumi is all male (or groups with male vocals). The honor of performing on Kohaku is strictly by invitation, so only the most successful J-POP artists and enka singers can perform. Even today, a performance on Kohaku is said to be a big highlight in a singer's career because of the show's large reach."

Unfortunately for Big Bang they weren't invited. Big Bang have said numerous times that they would love to perform at Kohaku. Maybe next year guys, but you have to remember that Big Bang is just starting in Japan. It took many years of hard work for TVXQ before they were invited. Congratulations to TVXQ and it'll be interesting to see them together as 5 given the issues going on with SM Entertainment. Thanks to Shiwei for the tip and remember to check out ONETVXQ Forums.
