I attended the concert at Tokyo Dome myself and strangely become afraid that eventually I wouldn’t care whether they want to come back as five anymore after the first day. Frankly, after attend the second day at Tokyo Dome, I have already moved on too…I don’t really care whether they can come back as DBSK in the future. (Even though I would love to hear them singing as five voices again.) But I don’t like the way they sang their song with so much painful emotion like at the end of last year. I just hope that all of them (including HoMin) are happy with their decision about the lawsuit. I came to admit that…this might be simple…love is not enough for them to be with each other.
I don’t think fan could feel hurt more than JaeChunSuHoMin. That’s why I don’t question 5 of them anymore.
They took their decision, they have to live with that. As long as no one bash each other, I am cool with it.
If there are fans who want to leave the fandom, it’s also their decision.
I do understand people who doubts JCS decision for this concert. Some even called them fake. (I know lots of people think about that….Seriously, if they can fake like that JCS should get Oscar! XD) You can call them whatever you want, doubt them and blame everything on them…I think JCS know it. (I think they do know that there will be a lot of fans turn their back on them after this concert too.) I think they are ready for that.
They admit that they regret to make fans regret, but I don’t think they are sorry for making their live better, to have freedom, to have more money. Yes, they need support for this concert, they need each other to hold on, and let me say something that might upset many fans…Personally, I think their relationship was broken somewhere last year, to the point that they cannot working together anymore. I don’t know what happen, who’s right, who’s wrong. I am not in the position to judge any of them, so I won’t. But sometimes silent just speaks louder than words (in HoMin case) and actions speak louder than words (in JCS case). People can look and interpret their silence and actions as they perceive. Now I just want to let them do what ever they want and hope all of them will succeed in their own way.
However, I still can’t believe that there are still fans who genuinely believe that SM would kindly offer changing the contract. If SM is really willing to do that, they could have done it year ago. Read the news more carefully please, the contract change offer is from the judge, not really SM side. SM said that they will “CONSIDER” it. Sorry, but how many times I have heard that before. I have already lost my count. I don’t see any real action at all.
For the question, why the other SM artist don’t file the lawsuit…you can take a better look at SM history. Then, I would ask you back, why there is so rare that any idol group stay with SM after 5 years? What’s so wrong with this company?
Another question, why people have to sit and accept the unfair treatment just because it’s a norm in that society? (Yes, I am talking about K-entertainment business in general.) If no one think out of the norm, we would still have had slave in America, no democracy in South Africa and you can list more story in this world. I won’t praise JCS as hero to file a lawsuit but I just cannot see the point that “everyone got the same bad treatment…so we should be able to endure it too”.
Yes, there are different levels that one could endure the suffering.
There is different ambition, different attitude for each individual person.
….That’s why we get 5 individual decisions from these 5 men.
I would be so proud if they can move on even though they have to carry all the feelings, guilt, fear, insecurity with them. They are grown up men and can take all responsibility. So let them get whatever they get from both sides of decision. Let them take all blame, all pain, all misunderstanding as a part of their decision. Let them take all support no matter how long it’s going to last.
I won’t ask HoMin to join the lawsuit or go out from SM as well as I won’t ask JSC to work with anyone who they don’t want to work with. Now, it’s not hard to understand and accept that this lawsuit, this separation came from 5 individual decision, not just 3. If fan can accept that, they can simply move on and live a life. Let them have lives as they want. I don’t blame any fan who wants to withdraw their support at all. As I said before, as long as there is no bashing, I am fine with it.
I don’t think that “W” lyric means they want HoMin to file a lawsuit or leave SM in order to be with them again. I think they just say they would hold a place for them in their heart, just like I have a place for DBSK as five, and now they are moving on…that they might be able to talk with each other again later…maybe in 10 years…that’s all.
I am not the one who believe in the word “always, forever, eternity…” << as much as it sounds good and great…nothing in the world could be there always and forever.
But… yes, I do believe they are moving on. I don’t know JaeChunSu in person, neither the reason behind their lawsuit. They might be 3 selfish greedy guys to file the lawsuit purely for money. However, all I know is they have too much talent to be wasted…and to say 3 voices cannot hold magic as much as they are five, partially true, but the magic in their 3 voices are still so strong and special, at least to me.
Put the fangirl feeling aside, it’s a shame…a big shame ….that these three voices have to hinder behind just because there is no consent from the company like SM and their friends. It’s their lives and their careers.
Call me selfish but I won’t give up my way of life just because I don’t have a consent from my best friend. That’s why I support any of them to sing…to release more and more songs, DVD, whatever they want to do. Why not? These guys are bunch of good singers, possibly good composer and producer in the future…why not let them work, create more music, so that we can have more good songs to listen to?
I talked to my friend yesterday and she said “At the end, DBSK is only idol, singers, artist, inspiration for fans but not life. What we lose when they are not together is just one of our entertainment path…not OUR LIVES! Why can’t we just let them have their own life too? Why should we even bother with their decision?”
THAT’S SO TRUE!!!!
This concert really remind me of a verse from “The Greatest Love of All”
“I decide a long ago
Never to walk in anyone shadow
…If I fail, if I succeed,
at least I live what I believe
…no matter what they take from me
they can’t take away my dignity…”
That’s what they are doing.
Sorry if I hurt anyone, it’s hard to accept but I do think it’s the reality fans need to realize and move on in whichever way we want. Leave or stay, it’s our own decision too.
