Surprising Fans…

18 Apr

Mao Asada, the famous Japanese figure skater who recently won the 2010 World Figure Skating Championships and earned at silver medal at the 2010 Winter Olympics, is said to be a big fan of TVXQ / DBSK / Tohoshinki. The story comes from MT News where they source a Japanese Magazine report on Mao Asada’s love for TVXQ.

The magazine has a photo of Xiah Junsu and states that she is a big fan of his. The report also states that after her April 8th Stars on Ice performance in Tokyo, Japan, Mao visited a famous Korean restaurant with her mother and older sister. The restaurant is said to be frequented by Hallyu stars 류시원 (Ryu Siwon) and 박 용하 (Park Young Ha). The restaurant is also said to be one of TVXQ’s favorite to visit.

One of the employees of the restaurant gave an interview with the magazine and stated that Mao Asada asked to be seated where TVXQ usually sits (on the 4th floor), more specifically, the exact same seat where Xiah Junsu usually sits. The employee also stated that they enjoyed dining on the Korean dishes such as Galbi-jjim, Bulgogi, and Sam Gae Ttang (Chicken Soup).

Netizens have been commenting, “Her Eyes are High (High Standards),” “Now I see Mao Asada as cute” and “Of Course Dong Bang Shin Ki!” The rest of the article talks about TVXQ’s ongoing issues with SM Entertainment.

Pretty cool that Mao Asada is a fan of the boys, thanks to Cindy for the tip.
