On June 14, 2005, TVXQ and BoA were appointed as PR spokespeople for the city of Los Angeles in the United States.

Aside music, the group acted together in their feature 4-episode theatrical drama VACATION, later released with the 3rd album DVD. With the success of their 3rd album and rise in popularity, they were invited to several popular Korean variety shows such as X-Man, Heroine 6, and Ya Shim Man Man. Hero Jaejoong and Micky Yoochun also acted in a skit comedy on MBC's Goldfish. Their All About TVXQ DVD became the best-selling DVD for 2006 in South Korea, with sales of 47,186 copies surpassing those of movies and shows. With the success of the DVD, the co-producers SBS and SM Entertainment decided to release All About TVXQ season 2 in a 5-DVD box set for 2007.

In early April, the members began hosting a weekly radio program called "TVXQ Bigeastation" on Japan FM Network channel, which is currently being aired on seven local FM stations.

On March 28th, TVXQ was appointed the "Goodwill Ambassador for Asia" by Universal Studios Japan to promote the attractions of USJ.

The group was also chosen as the new faces of the Lotte Duty Free Shops (DFS). A Lotte DFS representative explained that TVXQ was well-known all across Asia, and so was chosen as spokespeople for the Lotte Duty Free Shops. Ads that TVXQ shot for the company were released in November, when the group began participating in events sponsored by Lotte DFS. On May 17, 2008, TVXQ performed at the 6th Korean Music Festival in Los Angeles, California.
