Remember that iconic moment when they were live and Changmin asked Kyuhyun whether he was a virgin which made everyone burst into laughter xD. I loved Kyu’s shocked face and everyone’s (esp Minho and Sunggyu) reactions
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”.
So the other day I was asked what i thought the sexiest MV was. I answered with the below MV and though it’s one of THE most famous MV’s in the entire world, a lot of my followers haven’t seen it. This song was literally BANNED for being too sexy. And I was originally slightly embarrassed saying that this was imo the Sexiest Music Video until I rewatched it and realised THEY’RE ALL MOSTLY SHIRTLESS SINGING EXPLICIT LYRICS AND THEN ALL THE FUCKING BONDAGE MY GOD.
So no. I stand by it. This is from 2008 and it’s still sexy as fuck.
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~ ❤️
changmin: to fans, i don’t want them to see me as an absolute existence, don’t want them to have their entire life revolving around me, spending money on me or doing things for me. if it’s too extreme, even if it’s not to support me, i hope you all can treasure your own lives. from there, you can sometimes look at my activities, treat my existence as vitamins, if you can do this for me, i will really be very happy.
changmin: i don’t have a particularly intimate relationship with fans mc: is there anything you want to say to them? changmin: please find a boyfriend.
changmin: i do not sugar-coat my words, and i refuse to be the influence of these children. i do not have the power to be responsible for them. the “me” that you see is a result of packaging.
ufo: darling, what are you doing? changmin: we don’t have a member named ‘darling’.
changmin: i try crazily not to think about sex, but it seems like i just can’t do it
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
