Chinese TVXQ fans warn SM Entertainment on newspaper ad

I guess Japanese TVXQ fans aren't the only ones striving to put their feelings in print on Korean papers - Baidu BAR, a TVXQ fan group on Baidu, purchased an advertisement that was printed on Gyunghyang, daily Korean newspaper on December 26, TVXQ's sixth anniversary.

On the advertisement, the members of Baidu BAR left a message to SM Entertainment:
>

You are trying to cut the dreams that [TVXQ] has been creating for the past six years, and are hurting the hearts of hundreds of thousands of people who felt joy because of them.

Stop your actions that are hurting the five members. Let them sing freely without any constraints.

The storm will wither soon. We will protect them forever so that they are not harmed. We will forever wait.

We are always standing by TVXQ
- China's TVXQ Baidu BAR -




Baidu BAR was also helped by Korean fans, who helped distribute this advertisement to various media and press outlets. "Because this is TVXQ's sixth anniversary, Chinese Casseiopeians wanted to deliver an advertisement that expresses our current feelings across the sea," one of the participants explained, then adding, "Right now, SM Entertainment is constantly hurting TVXQ. However, all of the TVXQ fans will unite to form a solid knot in order to help TVXQ keep their dreams."

In the advocates' press release, the fans stated, "We will wait until the day that TVXQ can sing without burden when the rain stops and the sky is clear ... Until [SM Entertainment] stops harassing TVXQ, we are committed to protect them."




On a brighter note, TVXQ appeared as five on Asahi TV's Music Station Super Live on Christmas day and is scheduled to attend the Japan Record Awards on the 30th and NHK's Kohaku Uta Gassen on the 31st.

Despite the lawsuit controversy that has been going on for half a year now, we would like to wish TVXQ a happy sixth anniversary and hope 2010 brings an optimistic resolution to these issues. Stay tuned to allkpop for more and remember to visit the OneTVXQ Forums.

The Chinese knot represents unity and solidarity.
After the knot is made, it is hard to disconnect the string no matter how sharp the scissors are.
To commemorate the group's sixth anniversary, TVXQ's Chinese fans decided to release an ad that showed our current feelings
to Korean medium across the sea.
Although the agency is constantly hurting TVXQ,
Although the people we love are under great stress,
all of their fans will create a unified and solid knot
and protect TVXQ and their dreams,
We will wait until they are able to sing without burden under a clear sky
when the rain stops pouring.
Until SM stops hurting TVXQ, we will not stop either.

am i the only one who doesn't see sm as 100% the bad guy?

i mean, obviously the contracts are unfair, i know. but it's not like homin had a gun pointed at their heads and were forced to stay...

i love my tvxq and i want them to be like before but i'm not sure if blaming it all on sm and demanding them to release them as if they were being held captive is the answer.

sme has done bad stuff, but it's up to each artist individually how they handle it.

Like SM gives a fuck about what the fans think and if their hurt, they don't even care about there artists it's all bout the $$$ with them and nothing else matters.

yay chineese cassies. its always nice when fans come together to show support for an artist.
glasstonepearls 27th-Dec-2009 02:12 am (UTC)
keep at it cassies. thank you for showing your support through peaceful protest instead of craziness.

I think the sentiment is nice and their hearts are in the right place, but I don't know that all of these ads in the newspapers are going to help sway the position of a company determined to milk its artists for every penny they're worth without providing much compensation.

Though it is touching to see, of course. It certainly makes (some of) the fans feel better since it's more productive than sitting and playing the waiting game.

The korean government really should start caring. I mean, TVXQ probably sucked a shit load of international fans who spend a shit load of money on things, and considering how you alway hear about their attempts at becoming internationally important...it would help

completely ot but...DBSK got my first post..YESSS
