K-POP Legends (1/???) DONG BANG SHIN KI (동방신기, Rising Gods Of The East)
Formed by S.M. Entertainment in 2003, TVXQ began as a five-member boy band that
rose to international prominence in the late 2000s, after the group achieved critical acclaim in the Korean music industry for their best-selling albums “O”-Jung.Ban.Hap. (2006) and Mirotic (2008).
Selling over 10 million records in the first 10 years of their career, TVXQ have become one of Asia’s most successful music acts of their generation. They are often referred to as “Asia’s Stars” and the “Kings of K-pop" for their immense success and contributions to the Hallyu. According to the Oricon, TVXQ have the most number-one singles for a foreign artist, and is Japan’s best-selling foreign music act in CD singles of all time. Their Time Tour, one of the highest-grossing concert tours of 2013, is the highest-attended concert tour held by a foreign music act in Japan. With the tour, the duo became the first non-Japanese Asian artists to headline a nationwide five-Dome tour, and were the first foreign artists to perform in the Nissan Stadium. Billboard has described the group as "K-pop royalty”.
I’m seeing a lot of this line of thinking lately (primarily on Twitter) and wanted to clear things up a bit for people who may believe in this (false) notion
A bit of a background~ TVXQ is a duo that originally was a group of 5 that debuted in 2003. In 2009, that group of 5 parted ways to form TVXQ and JYJ separately.
Now, back to my point~
Despite having debuted 14 years ago, having gone through a group split that devastated/divided the fandom, and being on a 2 year hiatus, THIS is the reaction “irrelevant ol’ TVXQ” garners~
TVXQ may be “old” by your relative standards (since I’m assuming many of you got into kpop 2015 and after- based on my experience at least), but they are by no means “irrelevant”
I’m not asking you to study all these “old” groups but I ask that you respect them, because without their effort and the effort of their fans, you probably wouldn’t have known of kpop or known it as you do now
Our ocean looked like this
So yours could look like this
So please keep this in mind.
Also, if you see someone disrespecting a group like that, please do not hesitate to call them out~ ❤️
me, 99.9999% of the time:
i believe everyone is entitled to their own opinion. i understand that your taste in music and appearance might be different from my own. therefore if you dont stan the same kpop idols as me i wont accuse you of being a criminal or deaf or anything along those lines. i believe we should break down the borders of our fandom and love each other as much as we love our incredible idols. i think we would grow so much if we stopped criticizing each other and other idols.
every once in awhile some one says something like this though:
cool because i honestly think DBSK/TVXQ was so overrated, theyre better off now that its just the two of them-
gET THE FUCK AWAY FROM ME BEFORE I SMACK YOU WITH MY T ALBUM THEY PAVED THE WAY FOR YOUR FAVS YOU IGNORANT SHIT
Remember this picture? This was taken last winter 2005 for the joint single of DBSK (TVXQ) and Super Junior, “Show Me Your Love”. Look at how time flies sooooo fast. 😍😭
After 10 years…
DBSJ Bond is still VERY STRONG…
Some evidences are shown from 2014 until the present when…!
Eunhyuk cheered and supported Junsu by watching his musical ’December’. 😍💙❤️
Thanks to Jackie Chan’s Birthday! Siwon and Hangeng were able to meet publicly (with handshake and bump 😭). And don’t forget their smiles!
Photos of Hangeng and Heechul (HanChul 💞) were spread in different SNS.
Heechul commented on Kibum’s instagram post, “You’ve worked hard. Come when all of us meet up later I’ll bring you birthday cake 😀😀😀😀 ”, and members followed him where he also followed back!
Yunho greeted and talked with Jaejoong’s dad! 😍
Jaejoong and Yunho (YunJae 💞) are in the same event! Jaejoong even approached Yunho and his father in a tent where Yunjae also hugged! ㅠ.ㅠ
Donghae, Siwon and Changmin are together in the Seoul police department with all the musical & healing concerts and promotions! 😍💙❤️
And also they may have entered the army with different dates but Shindong, Sungmin, Eunhyuk and Jaejoong has been performing together in many of the events in the army! 😍😘💙❤️
DBSJ is just really so special! No one (especially SMent) can stop them from seeing each other. Wherever they are. Whatever circumstances that could occur. And whenever it could be. We, Cassies and ELFs, are so happy to see you guys together.
Always Keep the Faith and Promise to Believe still and will always be quoted
Thank you for showing us what REAL FRIENDSHIP is!!
It doesn’t matter if OT5, JYJ only or TVXQ2, we should stop fighting and stick together!
Our fandom is not strong as before anymore. We should STICK together to protect and support our boys!
Look at ARMY’s example! They are now what we were before.
Let’s be TOGETHER like in the past.
Let’s make DBSK/JYJ name great again!
