TVXQ is a South Korean pop duo consisting of U-Know YunHo and Max ChangMin. Their name roughly translates to “Rising Gods of the East”. Formed by S.M. Entertainment in 2003, TVXQ began as a five-member boy group composed of members U-Know YunHo, Max ChangMin, Hero JaeJoong, Micky YooChun, and Xiah JunSu. However, despite their commercial success, the group plunged into legal turmoil and internal conflict when members JaeJoong, YooChun, and JunSu attempted to split from their Korean agency S.M. Entertainment. Prior to the trio’s departure in 2010, TVXQ released their last Japanese album as a quintet, Best Selection 2010, which became the group’s first album to top the Oricon Albums Chart.
