TVXQ (stylized as TVXQ!), an initialism for Tong Vfang Xien Qi (Chinese: 東方神起), is a South Korean pop group consisting of the duo U-Know Yunho and Max Changmin. They are known as Tohoshinki (東方神起, Tōhōshinki) in Japanese releases, and are sometimes referred to as DBSK, an abbreviation of their Korean name Dong Bang Shin Ki (Hangul: 동방신기). Their name roughly translates to "Rising Gods of the East".

Formed by S.M. Entertainment in 2003, TVXQ began as a five-member boy band composed of members U-Know Yunho, Max Changmin, Hero Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun, and Xiah Junsu. They were immediately launched to mainstream recognition following the release of their first physical single "Hug" (2004), which peaked at number four on the MIAK monthly music chart. Their first studio albums Tri-Angle (2004) and Rising Sun (2005) were both top sellers, pushing the band's popularity beyond Korea. Under the management of Avex, TVXQ entered the Japanese-language market in April 2005 with their debut single "Stay with Me Tonight", but their first Japanese album Heart, Mind and Soul (2006) was met with limited success.

TVXQ rose to international prominence in the late 2000s, after the group achieved critical acclaim in the Korean music industry for their best-selling albums "O"-Jung.Ban.Hap. (2006) and Mirotic (2008), both winning the Golden Disk Award for Album of the Year. Their 2008 hit single "Mirotic" was touted by international music critics as a staple song of K-pop. TVXQ's success in Japan was solidified with their fourth Japanese album The Secret Code (2009), which spawned four chart-topping singles. However, despite their commercial success, TVXQ plunged into legal turmoil and internal conflict when members Jaejoong, Yoochun, and Junsu attempted to split with their Korean agency S.M. Entertainment, resulting in the trio's departure from the group in 2010. A year later, TVXQ returned as a duo with remaining members Yunho and Changmin, and they released TVXQ's fifth Korean album Keep Your Head Down (2011), topping album charts in most major Asian markets upon release. Since their 2011 comeback, the duo have sold more than 4.6 million records in Korea and Japan.

With over 14 million physical records sold since 2004, TVXQ has become one of Asia's most successful music acts of their generation. They are often referred to as "Asia's Stars" and the "Kings of K-pop" for their immense success and contributions to Korean pop. According to the Oricon, TVXQ is Japan's best-selling foreign music act in CD singles of all time and also the international artist with the most number-one singles in history. Their Japanese Time Tour, one of the highest-grossing concert tours of 2013, was the highest-attended concert tour held by an international music act. With the tour, the duo also became the first non-Japanese Asian artist to headline a nationwide five-Dome tour and the first international artist to perform at the Nissan Stadium. Billboard has described the group as "K-pop royalty".
