[Trans] 150731 Increase in Enlistment of Japanese Women to the JSDF… Because of TVXQ?



Due to TVXQ’s leader, Yunho’s enlistment to the military last month on the 21st, a weird effect has taken place in Japan, where there are many TVXQ fans.
Just when we thought a new vocabulary, “Ton-Loss” (means “grieve experienced after sending TVXQ to the army”) was created, this was indeed not the end. In Japan, although it seemingly “out of season”, there has been quite a few of middle-aged women contacting the Japan Self Defense Force (JSDF) to enter the force. When asked why they would like to enter the force, the majority of these women had answered, “Since a TVXQ member enlisted, I would like to do the same and experience the military life.”


In the latest issue of “A E R A” magazine, a new term “Ton-Loss” was introduced. The idea of the word is that because of Yunho’s enlistment, there have been many peopling struggling to relieve their sadness, thinking “how am I supposed to get through the next two years (precisely 21 months) without their presence”.
“Ton-Loss” is a combination of “Ton”, which is how Japanese people read the first character, “Dong” of TVXQ’s name in Korean and “Loss”, which is used in Haruku {p/n: A typo, it is “Haruki”} Murakami, a famous Japanese writer’s best seller “Norwegian Wood”. The Korean name for the book is “A Generation of Loss (direct translation)”, thus “Ton-Loss” indicates the feeling of loss experienced by TVXQ fans during their enlistment. Fans have been trembling in fear saying, “During Yunho’s service, there mustn’t be any wars.”


There are fans Continue reading

Upon Yunho’s enlistment, TVXQ activities will be temporarily on hold for that period of service. During that time, Changmin is scheduled to carry out his own *clear-cut* (i.e: not tvxq-related) activities independently.
