T (TVXQ album)

T is Tohoshinki's third Japanese studio album, released in January 2008 and debuting at #2. The album's biggest competition in sales was with Zard's "Zard Request Best ~Beautiful Memory~", the last album after its lead vocalist Izumi Sakai's death in 2007. T entered the Top 20 of the United World Chart, compiled by Media Traffic and shows the top-selling albums according to the global sales data and national album charts. TVXQ was ranked #19 on the chart above Mary J. Blige and Celine Dion.

According to the members, the "T" stands for several things, such as "Tohoshinki", "Title", "Third" album, "Top" and "Try". It could also stand for "Trick/Trust" and the group's "Teamwork". A week before the album's release, the single " Purple Line" had debuted and reached #1 in Oricon weekly sales.

The management played a different strategy to promote the album by splitting the members into teams which travelled separately to different cities in Japan for a week and appeared on radio shows and TV programs.

The song Kissしたまま、さよなら was specially composed and written by members Micky Yoochun and Hero Jaejoong, included only in 2CD+2DVD version. The song TRICK is a song that is a mix of 5 songs (released after the album), each dedicated to a separate member. The first letter in the following five singles spell out the name 'TRICK'.
