Before anyone read this.. i’m sorry if i offend anyone

We all know that JE boyband are (really)popular in japan but when i read that NewS going to postpone their new single(sakura gir) , i was speechless… is JE afraid of TVXQ? Japan is their homeland so they should get mire advantage than TVXQ…
I’m not really into JE boys (but i’m Arashi and kat-tun fan! but not really a hard-die one..just a fan)

Here is the article;
“Johnny’s Entertainment idol group NEWS has decided to postpone the release of their new single ‘さくらガール(Sakura Girl)’, which was scheduled to be out on March 24th, by one week.

A representative of the Japanese Records Association analyzed the situation and said in an interview with ‘Saijo Woman’ that “Korea’s top idol group TVXQ is releasing a new single ‘時ヲ止メテ(Please Stop Time)’ on the same day,” And “It can be analyzed that NEWS moved their release date because they are afraid to meet TVXQ on the charts.”

He also said, “NEWS holds the record of 11 consecutive albums ranking first on the Oricon Charts ever since their debut. It can be seen that they fear this record might be broken if they release their single the same day TVXQ does,” and “If it had been Arashi, who ranks first in overall annual sales, or KAT-TUN, who sold 350,000 copies of their single ‘Love yourself〜君が嫌いな君が好き〜’ that was used as the main theme song of drama “Sassy girl Snako”, they would have gone up against TVXQ but this decision was a wise one.”


But despite their soaring popularity, they seem to be showing a weak side in front of ‘TVXQ’ and fans felt upset at this saying things such as, “This makes me feel complicated.” and “Why are they pushing back their release date?”

On the other hand, NEWS’ ‘恋のABO’ that was released last year has sold an accumulative 234,000 copies. ‘Saijo Woman’ says “These sales may reflect the best of NEWS’ capabilities.”

Bad news for NewS fan thought..
wait..isn’t Toki wo tomete is also in Tohoshinki Best Selection 2010? nvm..

But then this is also a market startegy
JE fan dont hit me!
