Trivia Edit

  • While "Rise As One" was described as a song that represented Yunho and Changmin's journey through the years, "Champagne" was described as a fun party song. Yunho chose "Champagne" as his last single before enlistment because he wanted to leave the fans with a happy note.
  • According to SM's press release, the title of the album is inspired by TVXQ's Hanja name Dong Bang Shin Ki (東方神起), which roughly translates to "rising gods of the east."
  • Due to the TVXQ's unavailability, RISE AS GOD received little promotion. Introducing it as a parting gift for fans, SM only used social media to promote the album.
  • The music video to U-Know's solo song "Champagne" featured Jisung from SMROOKIES (now NCT).
