Even after 15 years, TVXQ has not faltered as one of the legendary groups in K-Pop!

It has been a decade and a half since Yunho and Changmin debuted as members of TVXQ — SM Entertainment’s then-new boy group following K-Pop icons H.O.T and Shinhwa — during BoA and Britnew Spears’ showcase on December 26, 2003 where they performed “Hug” and “O Holy Night”.

Celebrating 15 years in the industry, the duo gifted their fans with New Chapter #2: The Truth of Love, a follow-up extended play to their March release New Chapter #1: The Chance of Love. Led by “Truth”, the new EP was unveiled and released to the public on December 26, 6 p.m. KST.

The Truth of Love featured seven tracks including songs written by Changmin. It also include solo tracks of Yunho and Changmin namely “City Lights” and “Beautiful Stranger”, respectively. For “City of Lights”, Yunho enlisted the help of NCT’s Taeyong who also helped penned the lyrics of the song.

The album topped iTunes Album Charts in seven countries such as Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Japan, and United Arab Emirates.
