No matter how brutal reality may be, we will not run from it.

Habits are frightening. When something becomes a habit, you take it for granted, and then there comes arrogance and prejudice. Once you grow used to seeing celebrities flashing their dazzling smiles at the camera, you'll scorn at any display of annoyance or irritation; once you grow used to seeing these people as your role models, you'll refuse to accept any inapt behaviour. Once you've grown used to all of these things, reality becomes difficult to bear.

Scandal is scandal, it has no relation to truth whatsoever.

The one thing you cannot control in this world is the voice of the public. It may not be the voice of authority or the true voice of the majority. It is nothing more than a voice who claims to represent the majority.

Scandals are scandalous because we make them that way. We see what we want to see and say what we want to say. The only place in this world where the 'truth' hold holds value is in the courts of justice. This is the kind of world we live in, 'truth' is a tool we use to achieve the things we want, and we'll toss it aside as soon as we're done.
It's true that what doesn't break you makes you stronger.
It would be a shame if anticipation became demand.
You look up to and idolize those boys because they're everything you're not.
You want them to be perfect, and that is exactly what they become to you.
You want to be proud of them so that you can take pride in being a fan.
You feel like their pride is no different from yours, and so you want them to do their very best in everything.
And because you want them to do their very best, doing their best becomes an obligation that you demand them to fulfill.

Eventually being a 'fan' distorts into something else altogether.

It's the same as how the elderly take it for granted that people should offer their seats to them. It's an obligation, not a virtue.

When you play with children, it is your responsibility to feign defeat or to deal with their crying. It seems as though accepting defeat is not a trait of our nature. The root of this resentment is our tendency to compare. Everybody likes to compare. Comparison isn't such a bad thing, it's a means of putting your strengths and weaknesses into perspective. But when comparing morphs into competition, you'll be met with your destruction.

People who are unwilling to reveal their weaknesses and vulnerability seldom receive any sympathy.
Just because someone doesn't wallow in self-pity doesn't mean that they're any more fortunate or any less deserving of sympathy.
If you see someone fall or faint in the middle of a road, you'll walk over and help them up. But how about the people who pretend to have it easy? How about the people who silently overcome obstacle after obstacle, all the way until the end? How about the people who refuse to collapse until after they've completed their duty and have moved out of sight?

It all looks so easy when you're not the one living it.

We support because we approve and we approve because of the expectations we had to start with. People who work to satisfy expectations naturally receive support.
Purity, cuteness and sexiness, these are things that we like and approve of.
But what about them? The pressure of a comeback leave them with no choice.

When they don't approve of something, they'll just tell you 'I don't know' because that's really all there is to say. Nothing less, nothing more.
If people demand an apology, well then that's what they'll get.

Sometimes simple gestures speak louder than the songs that they stay up at night to work on. But does that mean that they should give up writing songs and be satisfied with winning people over through mere fan service?

If they fall over and tell us they're okay, we'll forget about it and move on.
If they're struggling to get to sleep but choose to stay up and compose anyway, we'll think nothing of it and move on.
If they tell us they're okay, then there's no longer a need to fight and defend them. People move on.

This is the kind of world we live in: children who cry get the attention they want.

Do they really have to have a motive behind everything they do?
When rumours of them being violent to their fans circulate, when they wear a few layers less of clothing, people jump to the conclusion that they do it to boost their popularity. Does it always have to come to that?

What is Dong Bang Shin Ki?
The love of our lives, the money making tool of large corporations, the dirt in the eyes of antis…
But to our boys, they are nothing more than artistes
It doesn't matter what other people think because they are living their dream
The Dong Bang Shin Ki we see on stage is who they really are
They're not smiling to please anyone, they are genuinely happy.

There's no way we'll ever live the same glamorous lives,
and there's no way we'll ever understand the hardships they've endured.
They are the stars in the sky, so far beyond our reach, and we're nothing more than fans who look up to them.
But this is the path they chose and they'll keeping pushing forward through the storm
So many things are beyond our control,
but the one thing we can do is to stand by their side and always keep the faith.

We just want to clarify the mistranslations that started the hating.

"If we're that bad of a company, I was told [Doesn't say by who] that the artists in Avex would have already quit. Hmm. It's kind of strange for me to say it myself, but.. I think we're a good company. We're just not good talkers. With this situation, the ones that are suffering most are..."

"We did as much as we could. But, for reasons we don't know, they chose the others. With that choice, it was inevitable that this would happen. This was the only thing we could do with a anti-social company in the background. [I know this doesn't make much sense. If you do understand, let me know...] Until the very end, we asked them to choose Avex. And even though we were rejected without an explanation, I still love those three."

"We didn't tell any lies that we should worry about being exposed in the future... That is all." [He's probably responding to people that asked why he's not just telling the truth now.]

This is the second fans support planned by PicnicXiah (Junsu's Korean fansite) for Junsu's musical, the day after Avex released the official statement to suspend JYJ's activities in Japan.

This time there were more people gathered for rehearsal.
We brought different types of simple food there during the rest time.
There are delicious rice balls which are suitable to eat whether in a warm sunny day or during the freezing cold weather and beautiful cupcakes . ^^
The beverage includes soft drinks, mate tea, lemon juice and so on.
When the staff opened the door to bring the food in, we heard Junsu's singing voice!
It sounded like a song in Elizabeth, it is really high pitched~~~ Such a coincidence that the part we heard was before the end of the song.
After the ending, all the actors bestowed him with thunderous applause.
TT TT TT TT Even the actors were all clapping their hands, not to mention us who brought the food there, we were applausing while standing TT TT TT TT

The staff and actors told Junsu, 'Please enjoy it~'
Junsu answered 'Okay~!!!', his mood seemed quite good, the atmopshere in the practise room was great too~
After they finished the food, the person who came out to greet us included the actors and director, as well as our main character Junsu!!! He suddenly showed up to greet us~

(Recently Junsu seems to exercise a lot, his muscles are attractive!!! TT.T)
We initially worried that Junsu might feel depressed due to the incident happened yesterday, but we were relieved when we saw his bright smile and the way he talked~
We only believe Junsu and we will support him with all our efforts. It is enough by doing so! ^.^

The following is Junsu's reply to the supportive postcard gave by PicnicXiah.
Junsu worried the fans will feel more fatigue than them so he wrote such message to us.
What we can do now, is to believe Junsu and continue to support him.

Message from PicnicXiah to Junsu
To: Genius Junsu who born like a star
Junsu ah, FIGHTING!
Everything will be alright. ^.^
The person with true ability is able to smile constantly, isn't it?
If we can't avoid it, then just enjoy it!

Junsu's reply
Seems to be too envious of us...
Even so, we will become stronger ^.^
Will always be thankful to you.

@(fan) I fully understand what you want to say. But I am confident that those comments were not made by the 3 members themselves. Please understand why I cannot unveil the reason here.
Approx 22 hours ago

What I want to say is that please do not be swayed by the comments which we do not know whether the members really said or not. The most troubled with the current situation should be the 3 members’ Korean management company. If this company exists, it is impossible for the 5 members to resume their activities. Let’s stop the sterile discussions
Approx 24 hours ago

I am not trying to gain the fans’ favors. I am just twitting my feelings and the results of my researches. I do not need to gain favors in the first place. @(fan) please do not try to gain the fans’ favors. Do you hold any special feelings to Tohoshinki? RT @inouekozodesu ..
September 17th 9:21pm

The Korean management company for the 3 members of Tohoshinki announced unbelievable comments. I believe they are even faking the members’ comments. They are just inflaming the Japanese fans. Please do not play around with the members anymore!

T/N: Inoue Kozo is a Japanese reporter who specializes in Japanese entertainment news.

“JJY halts activities..Tohoshinki cannot sing in Japan.” Tohoshinki, the group that, due to the management company SM Entertainment and exclusive contract issue, has halted all domestic and foreign activities. Members Junsu (Xiah), Jejung (Hero) and Yuchun (Micky), due to alleged relations with organized crime groups, were withdrawn from their Japanese management company Avex Entertainment. The local Sports Nippon news reported the incident with the above title on 17 September. JJY is derived from the initials of Junsu, Jejung and Yuchun. Sports Nippon said, “It will be impossible for the 3 to appear in the Year end Kouhaku Utagassen” although “Presently, Tohoshinki members’ songs are widely heard in Japan.” Also, “Avex had gone through Korea’s C-JeS to sign a contract with the 3. However, this company’s representative has a history with violent gangs, and using his father’s background, forced actor Kwong Sang Woo into an exclusive contract, was found guilty and got sent to prison. Avex, with their business ethics in mind, decided to cut the trio’s management off.“ they reported.

Also, “Their current decision will also help to improve their chances of reconciling with SM, who has had a poor relationship with them since the lawsuit began.” Without the support of Avex, the three’s chances of being isolated is very high” they analyzed. “Furthermore, if Tohoshinki restarts their activities, the three would definitely have to reconcile with SM. Avex revealed that “the 5-member Tohoshinki’s exclusive contract is unchanged. They will be working hard so that they can re-start their activities as 5,” but with the ruling of the lawsuit, which seems like it will happen this year, and if the three loses, a lengthy appeal period will be inevitable, and even with a ruling passed locally, an amicable end still seems difficult” Sports Nippon predicted.

On 17 September, Chunichi Sports News also reported with the headline “Tohoshinki Trio Halts Activities In Japan, Korean Management Company Representative Convicted.” saying “For 2 years starting May 2003, the C-JeS representative managed popular Korean actor Kwong Sang Woo, but in 2006, Kwong Sang Woo revealed that “I was forced to sign the exclusive contract,” giving them much negative press. The representative was found guilty of coercion, and he served time in August that year,” they pointed out. On the other hand, “Within a day, Avex has received over 200 enquiries about this news from Tohoshinki fans. It is also a fact that in July this year, Yuchun’s (Micky) manager was charged without detention for physical violence.” Also, “A decision on the lawsuit between the trio and SM, is expected to be revealed by this year. (With regards to the current matter), it is highly likely that important claims on the SM side will remain unchanged,” they predicted.

T/N: Please note that these are speculations from the Japanese press. Please read it with a pinch of salt.

There has been great concern in Korea after news went out that Dong Bang Shin Ki trio Micky YooChun, Hero JaeJoong and Xiah JunSu had left their Japanese agency.

The news came directly from the trio’s Japanese agency AVEX Trax on 16th September, announcing the temporal suspension of the trio’s Japanese activities. With that on 17th September, the trio’s representative responded on 17th September that the report is an one-sided report from AVEX Trax and have posed the trio with adverse conditions.

Even though this is for the trio’s Japanese activities, there has been great interests coming from Korea’s side as well. This is because currently, we are looking at the ‘new hallyu’ by singers who are promoting in Japanese currently like Big Bang, Supernova, KARA, So Nyeo Shi Dae etc.

In fact, the chance success to be achieved by the girlgroups in the Japanese music scene is said to be high. At the same time, many of these singers’ local agencies are contacting Japanese agencies to work together for these group’s Japanese promotions. And with this news, there have been many eyebrows raised from officials in the Korean music industry.

This comes as somewhat a cold air amidst the Kpop fever going on in the Japanese music scene. Dong Bang Shin Ki has been acknowledged as the representative Korean singer in the Japanese music scene. And many of the Japanese fans of KARA and So Nyeo Shi Dae are also fans of Dong Bang Shin Ki. This would have some impact on the Korean management companies to work with more caution with their groups promoting in Japan.

An official from the music scene commented, “Dong Bang Shin Ki is the pillar and the co-existence to Kpop in Japan. Even though they have not been very active since last year, we cannot underestimate the power that comes with the name in Japan. It is not exaggerating to say that the Kpop ‘new hallyu’ are made by Dong Bang Shin Ki. There are worries that with the 3 leaving the Japanese music scene, it will be like cold wind amidst the hot fever of Kpop in Japan.”
