Happy 9th Anniversary TVXQ! [9 for IX with TVXQ]: Moment 5 – 3rd LIVE TOUR 2008 ~T~

Moment 5/9

Recognizing Tohoshinki’s progress is a must when reminiscing the past 9 years. Their dream had always been a Dome concert. But to me, T Tour fulfilled my own goal for them. I wanted to see the boys able to express themselves to their hearts’ content. I can’t explain how painful it was to watch the boys struggle with the Japanese language barrier. It was so hard to watch them awkwardly laugh or be visibly unsatisfied with their replies. T Tour was at last that moment when I felt Tohoshinki’s sky had opened up.

Yoochun and Changmin’s “sexy counting” helps demonstrate what I’m talking about. Yoomin being able to do this gag indicated just how comfortable the boys were with the language and the Bigeast audience. Sure, it was a cheeky moment but a proud one because Tohoshinki could finally communicate fluidly.
