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~ ❤️
