[NEWS] 120405 DBSK/JYJ Are The Most Favorite Kpop Groups In Vietnam!

[NEWS] 120405 DBSK/JYJ Are The Most Favorite Kpop Groups In Vietnam!

Despite the fact that they haven’t worked in the same company anymore, 5 outstanding members of DBSK can still affirm their tremendous attractiveness in the hearts of thousands of Vietnamese fans by winning the first position in the voting campaign “The Most Favorite Kpop Artist” in this country in 2011.

The campaign is a major part of 360Kpop Award – the annual event of 360Kpop (http://360kpop.com) – the biggest website about Kpop in Vietnam. During one month of running (March 1st , 2012 to April 1st, 2012), the contest attracted thousands of supporters to vote via SMS. As a result, 5 amazing members of DBSK (DBSK Yunho, Changmin and JYJ Junsu, Yoochun and Jaejoong) together, they have become the most favorite group with the total votes of 16,124. Super Junior comes second with 13,743 votes, followed by BEAST (No.3), SHINee (No.4) and SNSD (No.5).

One special thing in the campaign is that the organizers have responded to the wish of Vietnamese Cassiopeia that 5 members are nominated as solely one group – DB5K (DBSK with 5 members). This will express the dream of their fans to see 5 members standing on stage together and confirm that DB5K will always exist in the hearts of Kpop fans in Vietnam. Besides, with the title of “The Most Favorite Artist in Vietnam”, Cassiopeia community wishes to see DBSK/JYJ coming to their country in the near future.

[TRANS] 120411 JYJ Fans “Over 250 Proof Shots” Truly Passionate Fans!

While celebrities are simultaneously uploading proof shots (of themselves voting) during the 4.11 General Elections, “JYJ Fans Proof Shots” have become a topic of discussion instead.

JYJ’s fans are responding to member Jaejoong’s tweet on 9 April, “Everyone please do take part in the general elections votings. Please upload proof shots~^^” JYJ fans each took proof shots in front of voting posts, while holding JYJ related items such as CDs, pictures and messages, and uploaded them.

Aside from the individual proof shots, the large “Proof Shot Mosaics” which were made have also become topic of discussions. As of 10.32am on 11 April, there were 153 proof shots, and this increased to 248 photos by 12.03pm. This number has continued to increase.

111216 So, How ‘Bout Them Mama’s? ~Myndless~

So, How ‘Bout Them MAMAs?

Before I begin this post, know that I am also a crazy fangirl in some ways.  ^_^  But…

Ugh…never have I seen so much crazy mess that is an award ceremony.  From the day the polls opened up for voting to the time of the actual award giving, things were just crazy.  But just to make things clear, I didn’t really pay much attention to it all.  So I really shouldn’t be saying anything about it.  But since my Twitter list is 90% Kpop related, I was still a part of it. 

In the beginning, I wasn’t really opting to vote.  I kept hearing who the nominees were for certain categories and such.  HoMin were nominated for a few as well as Super Junior, B2ST, and several other groups I like.  So, the main reason I didn’t want to vote was because of that: too many of my favorite groups.  But then there was also the fact that I was a little sad that JYJ was once again absent from the list.  Everyday was like one of those voting campaigns for presidential elections you’d see on television.  Fans of various groups had also found ways to boost up the voting results of their groups by making several voting accounts.  To me, I kinda felt that was wrong.  It felt like cheating.  Like fans were doing it just for the sake of the award rather than thinking about if they really deserve it.  Eventually, I did come around to voting, but I wasn’t going to vote for just HoMin or just Super Junior in all categories they were nominated for.  I actually went and looked up some of the other nominated artists and the songs that they were nominated for.  But I only voted ONCE.  That was it.  The rest of the time, I watched as others made various accounts to vote.  I was pretty much ready for it to be over really.  ^^;;

Then, just yesterday (on my side of the world).  Voting had ended and the award ceremony was held…in Singapore.  But it was live streamed as well.  I didn’t watch it because it was during my sleeping hours.  XD  But when I woke up…the reactions were just…  @_@  Cassiopeia was upset because HoMin didn’t win anything.  And I was okay with that.  They’ve won so many awards in the past.  I’m sure Yunho and Changmin were like: “Ah~ No awards this year.  That’s okay though.  We did our best.”  But if all five were there, I’m sure it would’ve been an almost all-kill.  It just goes to show that anything that was once full and becomes divided doesn’t stand a good chance.  Kind of like the slogan I kept hearing while in school.  “United We Stand, Divided We Fall”.  So…what does that tell us, Cassies?  Anyway, I believe E.L.F.s were upset because they didn’t win a certain award.  Again.  Nothing to worry about.  I think Super Junior did well this year too.  And I think they won an award anyway, so I’m cool with it.  I’m not sure why BlackJacks (2NE1’s fans) were upset though.  Either way, many fandoms were butthurt that evening.

Now…I know that there are some things that I do get upset about in my fangirl life.  Most of it being whenever my biases are said to be in relationships and stuff or when things between JYJ and HoMin stans flare up.  But when it comes to awards…I’m cool with it.  HoMin may not have won any awards, but look at our situation.  And heck, neither JYJ or HoMin are nominated for the Golden Disk Awards.  My theory is because they know how us Cassies are.  ^^;;  But whatever, TVXQ (all five members of course) are still stars in my eyes.  No need for an award.  Just keep on truckin’ towards reunification.  To the artists that won an award, I congradualate you~! 

I know I may sound like a bitter fan or some meanie that just stole your lunch money, but doesn’t some of my words have at least some truth or sense to them?  As one of my fellow Cassie friends has said…I am a thinking fan.  There are lots of things I think about that deal with how this fandom is and how I wish it was.  So, as usual, I apologize for stepping on some toes.  Now…onto my next post!

Translation 111027 JYJ Fan’s Voting Encouragement Project Becomes A Hot Topic As They ‘Prove They’ve Voted With CD’s

[TRANS] 111027 JYJ Fans’ Voting Encouragement Project Becomes A Hot Topic As They ‘Prove They’ve Voted With CDs’

Posted on November 1, 2011

With people uploading pictures they took of themselves to prove that they had voted for the next mayor of Seoul on the 26th, the voting encouragement project by JYJ’s fans instantly became a hot topic.

A photo that a fan took at a polling station was recently uploaded on an online community. The collection of photos that was posted alongside it was full of blue arrows with the word ‘polling station’ written upon them. But the faces of the fans who took the photos could not be seen.

The fans used JYJ’s CDs to prove they had voted instead of taking a photo with them in it like most celebrities do. The CDs that were used for the were different versions of JYJ’s first Korean album, as well as photos of JYJ and a stand-up cutout of JYJ.

Netizens who saw this left comments such as, “A great event, this is awesome”, “Like singer, like fan. How did they come up with such an idea?”, “Some of the photos made me laugh. This is unique”, and “The cutout of Jaejoong is the funniest.”

NEWS “My Entire family Voted”…But Viewers Get Girl’s Generation Instead of JYJ?

[NEWS] “My Entire Family Voted”… But Viewers Get Girls’ Generation Instead of JYJ?

(omitted for repetition from C-JeS’ announcement on the 17th)
Girls’ Generation and f(x) instead of JYJ, A switch that isn’t quite right
When it was revealed that SM Entertainment’s Girls’ Generation and f(x) would be performing in the slot that was intended to be JYJ’s before their performance was cancelled, the rage of JYJ’s fans reached a new peak. This situation also added fire to the continued suspicion that SM Entertainment is restricting JYJ’s broadcasted activities.
According to Prain, who are in charge of JYJ’s publicity, the performance on the 20th was to include violinist Kim Yoon Hui, JYJ, Popera singer Lee El and Norazo. But JYJ’s agency C-JeS Entertainment received a sudden notification of cancellation from KBS on the 16th and JYJ’s performance was given to Girls’ Generation and f(x).JYJ’s fans began sending their complaints of, “You used JYJ’s popularity to get their fans to vote for Jeju in the 7 Natural Wonders of the World poll, only to cancel their performance,” to Woo Geun Min(@withwoo), governor of Jeju Island, Jeju’s 7 Natural Wonders of the World promotional account (@7wondersJEJU) and KBS’s Twitter account(@MyloveKBS). When it was found that Girls’ Generation and f(x) would be appearing in the performance, fans continued to say, “I don’t get why you even bothered appointing JYJ as your honorary ambassadors.”
“My entire family voted…” The only winner from this is Jeju?

The problem has been magnified because of the fact that people had to pay to vote by texting in. @like_jyj said, “Because of JYJ, my entire family voted through our e-mail accounts and regularly voted by calling in or texting in for a fee,” and “We can’t help but feel betrayed by all of this.” International fans who have already paid for plane tickets and made hotel reservations to see JYJ perform were seen frustrated as they said, “Who’s going to compensate our losses and how?”
Meanwhile, KBS Jeju and the local government of Jeju Island avoided giving a definite answer to the situation by saying, “The person in charge is not present because it’s the weekend.” A representative of the local government stated, “KBS is in charge of everything for the concert and the local government is doing nothing but giving a location for the performances. The local government did not even provide financial support.” Regarding fans who believe JYJ’s position as honorary ambassadors was used to gain votes from fans and who are suffering from financial losses after having to cancel plane tickets and hotel reservations, the representative stated, “The local government of Jeju Island knows nothing about the issue.”
