TVXQ returning to stage with new album

It has been nearly two years since K-pop duo TVXQ released their last album, and now they are set to make a comeback performance with the release of their sixth record “Catch Me.”

The boys will be performing their title track “Catch Me” and “I Don’t Know” on KBS’ “Music Bank” on Friday, MBC’s “Music Core” on Saturday, and SBS’ “Inkigayo” on Sunday, according to their agency.

The Transformers-like dance moves of their latest music video caught the attention of fans, with nicknames such as the “hulk dance” or “dragon dance” coined to describe the group’s new choreography.

Tony Testa, a famous hip-hop choreographer who also choreographed the moves for SHINee’s hit song “Sherlock,” said he sought to express the anger and sorrow of “Catch Me” after being inspired by Joss Whedon’s blockbuster action hero flick “The Avengers.”

As K-pop fever continues to stretch its borders, it appears that Psy is not the only one catching the attention of foreign listeners. TVXQ’s “Catch Me” was aired on the Monday episode of “Live! with Kelly & Michael,” a popular American morning talk show hosted by Kelly Ripa and former American football star Michael Strahan. A clip of the song was played at the beginning of the show as the opener while Ripa and Strahan danced in front of their live studio audience.
