Popular male vocal group TVXQ will release its 4th studio album on September 24, featuring the title song "Mirotic," composed by Remee & Troelsen, who also wrote BoA's U.S. debut single "Eat You Up."
SM Entertainment said when it first heard the song earlier this year in January, it knew it would be the perfect song to revamp the image of the group. The agency said the group finished recording the song in June. It also said the song features a dreamy, sophisticated and strong melody. "Mirotic" is also the title song of TVXQ's fourth studio album.
Kenny Wormald, who has worked with Justin Timberlake, Chris Brown and Christina Aguilera, was put in charge of choreography of the title track. "Mirotic" will be unveiled online on September 19 through major music portals including Melon, Dosirak and Soribada.
TVXQ Fourth Album “Mirotic” MV to be played in front of City Hall on the 21st, Thursday September 18, 2008 Korea
Before it’s official release, TVXQ’s fourth album MV will be revealed on a big scale in front of City Hall on the 21st.
TVXQ’s fourth album MV finished filming around the end of August, with “curse,” “mystery,” and “darkness” as themes.
The producer of this MV mainly used a 35mm film camera during filming, enhancing the overall feeling of the video, with the TVXQ members and a female character immersed in the “curse,” and the members who wake up beautifully from this “curse.”
The full MV is to be released on the 21st at 6 PM Beijing time (I think it’s 7 PM Seoul time), with the theme of “giving young adults dreams and hope- TVXQ’s Mini Concert” for their showcase. The 20 second teaser, released on the 16th, has already received explosive reactions from the public.
Also, TVXQ plans to release their fourth album title song on the 24th on various music sites such as Melon, Cyworld, Soribada, etc.

TVXQ! ~ Mirotic Interview, Friday, September 19,2008 Korea
Q1 Condition of TVXQ
All: Hello, we're TVXQ!
CM: Yes, we recently were preparing for our 4th album, and we also were active in Japan simultaneously. And recently, there has been a concert with our SM family, with SM Town, right?
CM: It was a place where all the SM members performed together, something I dreamed of; with our juniors, and with BOA senior. It was very meaningful and fun!
JS: Yes, it was great.
Q2 Introduction of the 4th Album
YH: Yes, this album is a very special album to us.
JJ: Of course, we have come back after one year and seven months! We're actually releasing an album after such a long time, and the title of the album is "Mirotic". Yes, and firstly, Mirotic is a new word! Just like the two chinese characters, it means 'maze', and -tic. -Tic is an english word, which you put after a an adjective. So you can say that it's a fusion between chinese characters and english. So it's a new word!
YH: Does it mean that this album is an album you can't escape from?
YH: Yes, it's a spell!
JS: Please order the album (Joomon in korean means both spell and to order!)
JJ: A while back, there was an Internet article called "We take orders for TVXQ," I was so shocked! Look at their type of sense.
YH: Our title song, Mirotic, is a dance song composed of a reverse beat. It is a song with a very sophisticated yet cold touch to it. I think that the chorus, especially, is very charming. You fall for me, you go crazy for me, you're my slave, and so on. It's basically about us, putting on a spell onto one woman. A thing like 'you can't leave me'.
JS: It's the apperance of a very confident man.
YH: Yes, a very positive man.
Q4 An episode you remember the most during the prepare of the album
YH: During the time of a year and 7 months, there were numerous episodes while we tried out best to produce this album.
YC: There were more than many! Firstly, while we were filming the music video of Mirotic; during Changmin's solo scence, it was very late, and everybody was tired. Well, Changmin was under water, in a water tank, and he dived and swam around BUT that tank ended up breaking!
JS: What broke?
YC: Don't you not know? The tank!
JS: Huh? It broke?
JS: Ah! Right it did break!
YC: You know right? (JS: Yes, yes, yes!) Well, the tank broke, and so it took more time than we expected, and plus, Changmin had a cold!
JS: I felt bad for him, while I was watching him film his part.
YH: What I remember the most is during our photoshoot; even though the music video was filmed excitingly! There were slightly some scenes where we showed some skin, right?
JJ: Yes there was.
YH: So I remember how the five of us excerized
JJ: We really tried our best
JS: Really tried our best!
Q5 Future Plans in Korea
JS: We're back after a year and seven months, finally, and releasing an album. We put a lot of effort in it, since it's our fourth album, and we tried our best to produce and prepare for it. We'll be greeting you with an awesome performance, awesome live, and awesome dance with Mirotic, so please look forward to it. We really want to be active until the end of 2008 in Korea, so please help us, and support us!
JS: It was TVXQ until now! Thank you!
