This week, K-pop juggernaut TVXQ! kicked off their long-awaited comeback, dropping their first teaser for hungry fans. Just a year and eight months after their their fifth album Keep Your Head Down was released, an intense photo of U-Know Yunho was uploaded to the group’s website and Facebook page, possibly sending Cassiopeias everywhere into throes of joy. Deep breaths, Cassies. Deep breaths.
In his yellow-filtered image teaser, Yunho is blindfolded and sporting a leather jacket. Since their newest album is named Catch Me, should can we go out on a limb and call it a straight jacket?
Since their last Korean comeback in January of 2011, TVXQ! has been active in Japan. They released a full-length Japanese album and notably attracted over 500,000 fans to their four-month concert tour, TVXQ! LIVE TOUR 2012~TONE~. Lucky fans in the US and Australia were also able to see the duo perform at the 2011 New York-Korea Festival and SMTOWN Live in New York, not to mention the 2011 K-Pop Music Festival in Sydney.
Traveling the world is great, but there’s no place like home, right? TVXQ!’s sixth Korean album, Catch Me, will be released digitally on September 24 followed by its physical release on September 26.
What do you think of TVXQ’s leather-clad concept?
