[NEWS] 01.01.10 DBSK Disbandment - FALSE?

Only moments ago it was reported on male sensation DBSK, and their plans for disbanding in the new year. The source was from a Japanese article and SM Entertainment has yet to release a full legitimate statement, but things didn't look so good when Japan reported some unfortunate news.

A reporter said that tension within the group has become so high and bad that it's reached its limit, saying that Jaejoong, Yoochun, and Junsu showed more passion to perform than the other two as they seem to have lost the will to go on. Even worse, the reporter stated that, "Currently the three have begun their activities with a new agency and the remaining SM members are forbidden from contacting the other three."

Plans for DBSK was to apparently begin promotions for their last single BREAK OUT! on the 27th of January, and to release their last album on February 17th with one final goodbye concert in June.

However, SM Entertainment did not give a long detailed official statement but quickly replied to the situation by saying, "The reporter's statements are false. There are no plans of disbanding." But another source stated that, "Nothing has yet been officially decided."

There's much confusion going around and no doubt it's got fans very anxious. But could this be another foreign misinterpretation? Not too long ago, Chinese reporters said many false things about the the Hankyung lawsuit and this could be merely just another false rumor from a foreign country that didn't know any better.

[BREAKING NEWS] DBSK Officially Disbands?

According to Yahoo! Japan, as of December 31, 2009, DBSK has finally disbanded. We're going to start the new year with a pretty depressing note.

Though fans have been doubting this news or staying in denial, Japanese reports have stated that these boys are absolutely finished. No longer are the days when the boys traveled together, have any sort of interaction, or even react with one another back stage! Since the break of the news about trouble in paradise for the boys, there has been little to no interaction among them at all. The boys have been using separate dressing rooms or setting up walls to avoid contact with one another. Apparently, BREAK OUT will be their final single to be released and the boys will be releasing their BEST album in February. Finally, a final goodbye concert is to be held sometime in June. It is implied that after these events take place, the boys will end their relationship with one another as the group DBSK.

However, fans that still want to keep their faith alive, there has been no official news released by the boys, AVEX, nor SM Entertainment. Is it Yahoo! Japan being unnecessarily dramatic or is there some truth to this? We'll find out soon enough.

I want SM to PLEASE confirm this as a BIG FAT RUMOR RIGHT NOW
before I go and sink into an eternal depression and give up on life itself.
DBSK said so themselves they WOULD NOT disband.
Hope til the End!
Please don't start off 2010 this way! T__T

[NEWS] 12.11.o9 Cancelled SMTOWN Concert; 872 People Request for Compensation

The number of people who applied for compensation, at the Korea Consumer Agency, for the cancellation of SMTOWN in August have reached 872.

On 10 December, a representative from the Korea Consumer Agency – Court Committee of Consumer Disputes said, “SM cancelled the contract (T/N: Here, the term contract is used because it is a business exchange between the ticket buyers and the company) and this caused the other parties to request for compensation. Adding the 240 people that filed for compensation on 9 December to the 632 people that filed previously, there is a total of 872 people.”

A representative said that a majority of the applicants were youths, and proper proceedings will be carried out after these 872 applicants have been verfied. Due to the dispute SM is having with 3 members of TVXQ, the “SMTOWN LIVE ‘09″ concert that was to be held in August was cancelled.

The Committee estimates that the total sales for that concert amounted to roughly $9,090,000,000 (Won), and the Family Ticket which allowed 4 people to enter together amounted to $143,000 (Won). The Committee will take into consideration that most of the applicants are youths, so the latest the verdict will come out is by next year, and a conclusive verdict will be given then.

[TRANS] 11.21.o9 United Cassiopeians Chant 'DBSK'

Mnet's '2009 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA)' vowed to become a music festival of Asia and started off with a bang.

MAMA was held at the Jamshil Indoor Gymnasium at 7 pm on the 21st. This event was broadcasted through Mnet and KMTV in, not only Korea, but the ten major Asian nations Japan, China, Thailand, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Philippines, Macao, Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore.

Three members of DBSK, Micky Yoochun, Xiah Junsu, and YoungWoong Jaejoong, who are caught in a legal dispute with their agency SM Entertainment, did not follow the footsteps of the agency and instead announced their attendance of the awards ceremony and many are curious of the future of DBSK.

DBSK fans who were on location sang a DBSK song together as the commercials were playing at the end of Act 1 to show their love for them. They also waved their red balloons and shouted "DBSK" to show their belief that DBSK would last forever.

[INFO] DBSK Trio After MNet's Asian Music Awards

YoongWoong Jaejoong cried backstage. Cassiopeia entered the resting room and kept on crying, Yoochun cried and Junsu was telling him not to. When they left, their manager was not with them. There wasn’t any body around. No bodyguards. Not even a proper method of transportation. They went off in a van.

Yoochunnie was about to burst in tears, when they were walking down the stage he was hiding his face in his hands. Junsu was on the phone, they (Cassiopeians in attendence) assume he’s trying to call the other boys beccause he said something like "we should call them."

Yoochun's mom was there with the three boys and she was crying because Chunnie looked heartbroken as well.

All in all it was a very touching yet sad evening for the boys, us fans and anyone else linked to this. T____T

And I thought it was bad when they were giving their speech T___T
I have more of a reason to cry now..

Stay strong DBSK...

[INFO] DBSK's Appearance at Mnet's Asian Music Awards

DBSK members Youngwoong Jaejoong, Xiah Junsu and Micky Yoochun showed up at the Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) as promised and delivered a very heartwarming acceptance speech.

On the 21st, DBSK was awarded the "Best Representative for Asia//Best Asia Star" award.

Xiah Junsu stated:
"It's been a long time. It's an honor just to be able to attend such a huge event, but being able to receive an award, thank you so much. This award is not for one single member, but because all 5 members have put forth so much effort we are able to receive it. Thank you so much to all of our fans in Asia for allowing us to receive such a huge award."

Micky Yoochun stated:
"I think this is the first time I've wanted to sing so badly. After becoming a singer, I was able to meet such great members, that's why I think we are able to be here. We will work even harder to expand beyond Asia. We hope for even more support than now."

Youngwoong Jaejoong stated:
"I can't be happier because this award is coming directly from the fans of Asia. To our fans who are watching and possibly our two friends who are watching, I wanted to say that I love you."

[TRANS] 11.2o.o9 DBSK Trio - "We Never Signed the Shenzhen Concert Contract"

"The Shenzhen Concert Note of Confirmation, we never signed it ourselves."

Signed Signatures: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/__q3SmOuzfwY/Swa1hWHiWpI/AAAAAAAACoo/IKKMhxkXdjA/s400/1.jpg
Original Signatures: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/__q3SmOuzfwY/Swa1h4LKqII/AAAAAAAACow/IT-BaERkCwM/s400/2.jpg

Three members of group DBSK stated that an unauthorized use of their signatures was used for the documents relevant to the Shenzhen concert. Xiah Junsu, YoungWoong Jaejoong, and Micky Yoochun's representative stated on the 19th that, "We realized only recently that the signatures of the three members of DBSK were being used without authorization. The signatures on the Shenzhen concert note of confirmation were not signed by the three members themselves, but somebody else signed the paper instead."

The three members side found out about the unauthorized use of their signatures on the note of confirmation after their Korean and Chinese fans questioned the validity of the signatures. The note of confirmation in question was the document that recognized the singer's willingness to attend the concert in China. This document was then shown at the location of ticket sales in order to prove to ticket buyers that the singer would indeed be attending the concert. Sejong Law Firm's Lawyer Lim Sang Hyuk of the three DBSK members stated, "Setting aside the validity of the Shenzhen concert contract, this act was an action that brought misunderstanding to the fans. We are planning to take counteractions against this action officially."

Sejong also released a hand written document of Mr. A who says he signed the note of confirmation instead. He also showed the actual signatures of Xiah Junsu, YoungWoong Jaejoong and Micky Yoochun to show that there were clear differences in the signatures. according to the hand written document, Mr. A "Signed the Shenzhen Concert note of confirmation instead of DBSK in March." Mr. A's claims are to be investigated.

Lawyer Lim stated, "On the 19th, we requested for a judgment by an expert on the signatures on this note of confirmation and the members' original signatures. Even just by seeing it, you can tell that there is quite a big difference."

He also said, "When this lawsuit was initiated, the three members promised to perform all preassigned activities. However, the Shenzhen concert was not one of them. The members found out about the Shenzhen concert during the procedures of the lawsuit." He also said, "Even the fans knew that there was a problem with the signatures on the note of confirmation. Therefore, we asked SM to show us the details of the Shenzhen concert contract but SM did not comply."

One representative of Korean music industry, "In the case that the singer in an agency is busy, there are times when a representative signs the papers instead after telling the singer of the concert or the schedule." This representative also stated, "When the relationship between the agency and the singer is good, there are no problems . In such a case, I believe that it has become a problem due to the deteriorating relationship between SM and the three members of DBSK."

[TRANS] 11.2o.o9 Plaintiff's Reason for Suing DBSK Trio

Recently, a Chinese company in Beijing filed a lawsuit against the trio and Crebeau. The three pages above contains the reasons the company sent to the trio explaining why they sued.

Here is a rough translation (certain parts are summarized to keep it comprehensible):

Regarding the use of DBSK group name or the members, Crebeau (Beijing), and the tort committed to our company:

January 6th, 2009, three members participated in Crebeau China investment orientation. Because they guys are popular, a lot of fans were present.

May 6th, 2009, Crebeau had informed our company that had invited DBSK as Crebeau product representative, the three members joined as company shareholder (director), and express that the trio will participate in a large promotion, seeing how DBSK have a huge fan base in China, with strong appeals, plus their participation in the promotion activities that Crebeau had promised, thus our company signed the contract with Crebeau.

June 8th, 2009, “Crebeau’s Korean branch WE# PLUS Co.,LTD signed contract, agreeing to become crebeau’s surety (view contract). Thus, our company invested nearly 300,000 yuan (Chinese currency) for renting room, renovating, finding staff, and other preparational work.

In June of 2009, the three of them along with Crebeau newly registered a Crebeau in Beijing. Using the name of Crebeau to contact our company and getting us to purchase more Crebeau products.

June 26th, 2009, after all the preparation work, our company signed a formal contract with Crebeau. We spent about 700,000 yuan to import Creabeau products and started the promotion.

Jun 22, 2009, as Crebeau promised and schedule, the three of them will attend July 16th, 2009 for Shanghai press conference under the title as director of Crebea, with a fan meet, allowing our company to start promoting. Our company spent 200,000 yuan on promotions.

July 8th, 2009, Crebeau (including Crebeau Beijing) have problems regarding the schedule, and informed our company that the three members will not attend the press conference and promised they will pay for all the damages, and apologized on the behave of the three members.

July 14th, 16th of 2009, The DBSK trio’s family members represented them in Beijing and Shanghai and apologized for their inability to attend.

July 11th, after DBSK’s Beijing concert, Crebeau lawyer notified us of a conference, in which Kim Junsu and Park Yoochun expressed their apologies to us.
Middle of July 2009, our company were notified of the lawsuit between Korea’s SM entertainment and the members of DBSK, and we were asked to cooperate in provide information.

July 24th, 2009, we became worried about Crebeau and the three members. We tried to contact Crebeau to ask whether they will pay us for the damages, but received no response to this day.

Regarding their actions, there have been lots of disappointment for fans, and with the lawsuit going on, Crebeau products are nearly impossible to sale, which created a large financial lose for our company, until now, our company accumulated to up to 1,200,000 yuan in loses.

Recently, we have received some information. We think there as a tort of fraud committed against us. We believe it’s not hard to see, the trio along with Crebeau’s close relations, creating a wronged believe of there was an implied warranty of authority for Crebeau, to make us enter into this. They lured our company into this, then did not attend the press conference and repeatedly apologizing, and at the same time started a lawsuit with another company, their actions created many loses for our company.

To protect us, we hope their will pay for our financial loses, or our company will take legal action, finding theirs and Crebeau’s responsibility and reveal related things.

We hope to receive a reply by November 7th 2009, or they can be prepared to face consequences.

[NEWS] DBSK's Junsu's Fans Donate for the Hearing Impaired

The fans of DBSK's Xiah Junsu and Hwangbo have donated money for surgery fees and verbal remediation fees for hearing-impaired children and once again showed the warm love of fans.

According to the Snails of Love foundation, Xiah Junsu's fan community 'Xiah Soul' and Hwangbo's fan community 'Estella' showed their deep love and interest for the hearing impaired by donating money to cover fees for surgery and verbal remediation for children and teenagers.

To celebrate Xiah Junsu's birthday last year on December 15th, Xiah Soul decided that they would help a good cause rather than give their celebrity materialistic items and donated 8 million Won for the surgery and verbal remediation of Kim Dan Hee (6th Grade) to help her find her lost hearing.

Although Dan Hee's sister Dan Ah (9th Grade) was also hearing impaired, she gave up the chance to get her hearing back and let her sister be treated first. When Xiah Soul heard of this, they decided to donate money to sponsor the surgery and verbal remediation of Dan Ah for Xiah Junsu's birthday this year.

'Xiah Soul' donated 10 million Won to the Snails of Love foundation and showed their warm hearts by helping those in need.

Xiah Soul's Master Ahui (nickname) said, "We hope that Xiah Junsu's contract problems are solved well, and continue to be remembered as a singer who the hearing impaired can listen to once they are treated," and "Dan Ah, and Dan Hee are so pretty and lovable, we wanted to give Dan Ah a chance to hear as well and we are so happy that she is able to go through with the surgery."

[TRANS] DBSK Invited to MNet's Year-End 'MAMAs'

Date: November 16th, 2009
Time: 3.23pm

On the 16th, it was revealed by Mnet's office that they have invited DBSK, whose members are in the midst of a legal dispute with their management company, to attend their year-end awards "Mnet Asian Music Award" (hereafter known as MAMA). This year's MAMA will be held on the 21st November, Seoul, Jamsil Gymnasium.

Their office said, "MAMA's aim is to show the rest of Asia Korea's culture" and "the award ceremeony will be aired across the 10 main countries in Asia, like Japan, China, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand, where DBSK is the best artist. Thus, Korea's top artist cannot be excluded from the invitation."

On MAMA's end, they have expressed interest in inviting DBSK to attend their awards. On the 16th, they said that they would get in touch with DBSK's management to see whether it would be possible for them to attend or not. However, DBSK's company, SM Entertainment has declared that they would not be attending MAMA, so a lot of attention has been cast on DBSK to see whether or not they will attend.

An official from the KPOP industry said, "Last month, the courts approved a partial injunction to the 3 members' exclusive contract with the company, and the 3 members are allowed to participate in their own individual activities" and "while we hope that all 5 members can attend together, the possibility of only the 3 members attending is high".

MAMA is holding their award ceremony on the 21st, which was originally the date of DBSK's concert in China. However, SM Entertainment claimed that, "The 3 members expressed that they did not wish to participate in the concert that was to be held on the 21st, and the remaining performances are uncertain." In contrast, the 3 members' side claimed that "From the beginning, the China concert (Shenzhen) was not in the contract."

A representative from a company for idol groups said, "SM Entertainment and the 3 members have differing opinions, and the dispute is becoming more serious. Disbandment might be inevitable."

[NEWS] DBSK Plans For Japan, Unchanged!

TVXQ//DBSK//Tohoshinki's future in Korea is unclear. With the turmoil going on with SM Entertainment and concerts in China being canceled, the future for them in the motherland is dark and murky at best. What they need is a light and they have that in the land of the rising sun, Japan.

AVEX Entertainment, one of the top music labels and the management company of DBSK in Japan made it clear to everyone that their activities in Japan will remain unchanged.

AVEX stated that DBSK will release their new single titled 'BREAK OUT' around New Years 2010. All their scheduled fan meetings and performances will go on as planned. They will go about their business as usual in Japan.

[NEWS] DBSK 2010 Comeback, Impossible?

Jaejoong, Junsu and Yoochun of DBSK have yet to answer to SM Entertainment on what their final decision is.

SM Entertainment revealed,

"These three DBSK members have refused to the upcoming activities as DBSK so the DBSK 3rd Asia Tour-Mirotic in China on the 21st is now canceled. The three say that they won't go to it. We regret to inform fans of this news. Because of this, DBSK's image will be damaged. Not only will this affect DBSK's Chinese promotions but it will also affect other Korean artists' promotions in China and Hallyu in general. They said to the court that they would continue with their planned activities but the concert in China that was planned in 2008, has now been turned down by them."

This press release statement continued,

"We were also planning for a comeback in Korea next year. The three members have yet to reply to us about their national comeback. Because of that, their next year comeback has become impossible. We are sorry to be announcing this."

[NEWS] What Will Become of DBSK?

SM Entertainment's proposed D-Day is now here (November 12th, 2009), but it seems the legal battle between SM and the three DBSK members, Xiah Junsu, Micky Yoochun and Youngwoong Jaejoong is going nowhere.

As of now, the three members and SM Entertainment have been unable to come to an agreement. Both parties are holding firm to their demands, but time is running out. SM Entertainment gave the three members a deadline (today), to make a decision and agree to their guidelines, however there has been no response.

Both parties have been extremely cautious with their words and have not revealed much information. When questioned about the current situation, the three members' lawyer Lim Sang Hyuk stated:

"Other than what is already known, there are no other details."


SM Entertainment stated:
"We have not yet received a response from the three members."


With both parties unwilling to budge, the situation has become increasingly grim for DBSK fans. It doesn't look like an agreement will be made today, which makes us all wonder what will become of DBSK. Stay tuned as more developments roll in.

[NEWS!] DBSK One Step Closer to the End

The three members of DBSK who have taken legal action against SM Entertainment are planning to work by themselves, according to their legal counsel.

When Sports Seoul asked the three members' legal counsel about SM Ent demanding the three members to make a decision by the 12th, they were told:

"The three members are taking a break at the moment and are planning new projects. We do not plan on responding to SM Ent's press conference. SM Ent was ordered by the court to submit relevant evidences and they have been ignoring this order for almost 3 months now and they also have not been following any other court orders. Conversations with SM Ent. will start when they start respecting the court's decision. The court said that the three members may work on their own, so we do not need SME's permission on that. We are also seriously considering making criminal accusations against SM Ent."

The three members are now planning their own projects separate from that of the five-member DBSK and in no way related to SM Ent. They also do not intend on responding to SM Ent.'s demand for an answer by the 12th.

The fathers of Yunho and Changmin, the two DBSK members who were not involved with the controversial lawsuit earlier this year, spoke up in support of their sons and SME while condemning other three members and their parents. They claim that the dispute has more to do with the trouble that has arisen from the beauty product business rather than mere contractual matters.

Mr. Chung, the father of Yunho, stated:

The two members who did not involve themselves in this legal dispute are the real victims here. They suffered from financial loss, psychological suffering and most importantly they lost their reputation. Who is to compensate them for their losses? I intend to ask the other three members this: Whatever the reason, why do you intend to cause such great controversy and drive DBSK, an international brand name, into a break-up? Do you care at all about the other two members and their suffering?

The beauty product business wasn't something that was supervised by SME. On top of that, the beauty product company itself wasn't very trustworthy. When it was started, I felt that DBSK's reputation could potentially suffer from involvement with that company and advised my son of the issue. He shared my concerns as well, and that is why he did not involve himself in the business. SME later asked the three members to withdraw from the business but their parents resisted unreasonably. Mr. Shim (Changmin's father) and I tried to convince them as well but they simply refused to change their minds. I later learned that the three members took up legal actions against SME without consulting me nor Mr. Shim. DBSK is not owned by those three members only. They ignored not only the controversy that would rise but also the rights of other two members.


Mr. Shim, father of Changmin, stated:

Simply put, the other three members took legal actions against SM because of the beauty product business matter and other reasons which involve their financial gains. What they claim as their reasons, reasons such as unfair contract and unclear profit division are merely excuses to hide the true reason behind their actions. After the three members started the beauty product business, one of the parents called me and told me shenanigans like "This business can be worth millions or even billions in the future. When we tell the media that DBSK has started a business, share price of our company will hit the roof - we will tell you in advance so you can profit from the information."

Three members claim that the contract is unfair and calculations are unclear, but my son and I have read over the contract with SM clearly and agreed to all clauses, from the very first contract through all five revisions that have been made. For every income my son has received I reviewed all of the the numbers. I feel sorry for the three members and their parents as they must know of the truth but they continue to make false claims."

[NEWS] DBSK's Yunho & Changmin Supports SM Entertainment

Yunho and Changmin of DBSK//TVXQ have stated that they are on SM Entertainment's side on the legal dispute between the company and other three members.

They said that they trust SM Entertainment and will be with them in the future. The two also gave a deadline to the other members (Junsu, Yoochun, Jaejoong), expressing that DBSK will come back to promote in Korea next spring, so the other three members must make a decision before the 12th of this month.

The two members' thoughts were delivered through a document compiled by Yunho and Changmin themselves, which stated:

We five members of DBSK signed the same contract with the same clauses for the past five years, and have worked together under same conditions with utmost trust in the company, each other and our dreams. We intend to share our dream and future with the company and keep the promises we made in the contract. DBSK was made by SME and we intend to work as DBSK with SME.

No other company can create DBSK, as only SME can provide the best production and management team available. The three members should know better than anyone else that SME is the one who knows DBSK the best and made us the best. We intend to keep trust and promise and thus intend to stay. DBSK's grand future will be with SME.

We believe that our Korean promotion, planned for next spring, should be prepared at least 6 months in advance before our future as one becomes unclear. If the other three members truly want to stay as one DBSK, they must make a decision before it's too late.


They also commented on the beauty product controversy which sparked this legal dispute between the DBSK trio and SM Entertainment:

The beauty product business changed everything. We are not familiar with the matters but we believe that a legitimate company that seeks to do business with DBSK must consult with SME first. It is common sense. We did not get involved because being such a relationship without SME would have meant that trouble was ahead.

We did not want the reputation and pride of DBSK, earned by our hard work, to be ruined by a company that did not work in a legally respectable manner. We are not aware of the contract between that company and the three members, nor do we know what those members were told or how much they have earned through their deal. What we do know is that the fact that DBSK, forged together for five years by all of our dreams, has fallen into its current state because of an unethical company that is simply unacceptable.

With DBSK crumbling away like this, the current situation is unbelievable. It is sad to see that this was all caused by some beauty product company, and we hope that the three members would come back to the days when we were all working hard for our dreams.

[NEWS] DBSK Not Allowed to Continue Group Activities

SM Entertainment will hold a press conference today regarding the conflict with TVXQ//DBSK//Tohoshinki.

Lawyers of SM Entertainment said:

"The court's ruling for DBSK is not fair. They didn't consider the main reasons of the case. Their long contract is so that we can let them grow and have a long term deal with them. We want to look at their career in the long run and the court's decision is not letting us do that. This is going to affect DBSK's international promotions. It'll also create confusion for stars that want to have long term contracts and move on to bigger things later in their careers and for the companies that want to nurture talented people for a longer time. Not only that, it'll have some unwanted consequences on exports of Korean music as well as other issues."

They continued to say:

"Each year, we adjusted the contracts in favor of the members. Before this problem, the three members never complained about anything. Now that they have succeeded this much, they are complaining. They have just started to reach the top and now want to separate. Before a final decision is made, the three can do their personal and individual work. However, this does not grant the three members any rights as part of DBSK."

Because of all this, DBSK has not been able to work and SM Entertainment will seek to receive compensation for damages during the time that DBSK has been inactive.

[NEWS] DBSK's Income Revealed!

With the court agreeing on the injunction sent by the 3 members of DBSK, the trio had the power to look at SM Entertainment's contract for the members. It was shockingly unfair and against public policy. The three members who stood up for themselves (Kim Junsu, Kim Jaejoong, and Park Yoochun) have the court on their side and are now proceeding with their main lawsuit, which is to get the shares and income that they deserve from their activities in the past 6 years.

Below is what the court has presented as the content of the members' contracts. The contract has been modified 5 times since their debut, so this is the overall review.

1. DBSK has received $0 from their album sales till July 2008, and a very small amount after.

Before the fifth modification that the company made with their contract, it stated that the profit from albums and singles with sales less than 500,000 copies would go 100% to SM Entertainment, which left the members with nothing. There has been no Korean album that have exceeded 500,000 album sales between the time of DBSK's debut and their 4th album Mirotic, which was the first album in Korea to sell over 500,000 albums for a long time.

On July 1 2008, the company changed the contract so each member would get 1% from album sales that exceeded 200,000 copies. For albums that are below that number, they are paid 0.6% to nothing. Through these terms, DBSK has not earned a single cent since February 2009.


2. DBSK has received $0 from sales of concert DVD's and albums with recordings from concerts.

The contract stated that the members are not entitled to get any profit from concert DVD's and "live" albums.

3. DBSK received $0 from their appearances in TV programs.

In the contract, the members do not have a right to receive the shares made from appearances on television programs if they are featured in only one episode or if their appearance is temporary. SM has kept all the profit from TV shows where DBSK were guests.
4. For other ways of getting profit, SM subtracts the total amount with all the expenses that the company has paid for them, including clothing, salary of company staff, stage preparation, rent, food expenses, and etc., which only leaves a fraction for the members of DBSK.

As for all other sources of income, the contract says that the members do not get the full "net income", but only get a percentage of it. The contract states that the "net income" is the profit remaining after deducting their operating costs, which is the money that the company spends on them. The operating costs include expenses that are to be covered by the employer, such as salaries of the staff (manager, clothing coordinators, makeup artists, dance coordinators, back dancers, etc.), performance stages, living expenses which include water and electricity bills, travel expenses which include plane tickets, and meal expenses. The company might add something in addition to deduct more from the net income.

In conclusion, DBSK actually received anywhere from 1% to 5% from all of their activities, which depending on how you look at it can still add up to 7 figures or more but still many consider this to be unfair.

I knew it.

Well now here it is. Fail.
I really hate when i'm right about bad things! T___T

[INFO] 'Heading to the Ground' Ends Early...

Heading to the Ground, a drama which stars popular TVXQ//DBSK//Tohoshinki leader Jung Yunho and actress Go Ara, will be finishing earlier than planned.

Originally, the drama was slated to have 20 episodes but there will be no happy ending. Due to very poor ratings, it's been decided that the 16th episode, which will air on November 4th, will be the final episode. The final episode has been re-cut//re-edited so that the show can tie up the storyline and have an early ending. MBC hopes that their new drama that's going to replace HTTG, Hero, starring Lee Junki will resurrect their ratings.

Wah...poor Yunho T__T
It went from 20 to 18 and now to 16...

[NEWS] 'Heaven's Postman' Release Date Changes?

Last week it was reported that 'Heaven's Postman', a telecinema production starring TVXQ//DBSK//Tohoshinki's Jaejoong and Han Hyojoo was going to be released on November 25th. However, there's now rumors to the contrary.

A Japanese media report is reporting that Heaven's Postman will be released in theaters on November 12th. Now, the people in head of the Telecinema 7 project have neither confirmed nor denied this so take this as simply rumor at this point. We all know that 'Ninja Assassin' is going to be released on November 25th starring Bi/Rain so maybe this caused the change?

Hmm...just release it already. T__T

[NEWS] Court Rules in DBSK's Favor



Earlier today, the court had issued a ruling that SM Entertainment cannot interfere with the individual activities of the three members of DBSK: Hero Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun and Xiah Junsu.

Basically, SM Entertainment can no longer claim full exclusivity on the three DBSK members. However, the court was unable to decide on whether the contract is invalid at this point as there were way too many variables.

In response, SM Entertainment has revealed that they will immediately appeal the ruling. SME will also hold an official press conference to disclose the truth and their position regarding this matter, which was never revealed to the media previously.

This case ain't over yet as Sejong law firm, representing DBSK, will file a lawsuit to be compensated for damages as well as to have the contract deemed invalid.

With the recent developments of this case, many feel confident that DBSK will be able to continue as a group. We will just have to wait a little longer.

SNSD was in Hanoi, Vietnam on October 18th for their concert held at the National Conventional Center hosted by Arirang TV.

and apparently, Cassies, ELFs, and Hottest refused to miss this chance and came around to shout 'DBSK' so that hopefully SNSD could inform this to their sunbaes that they’re so missed even in Vietnam <3...

[INFO] DBSK's Xiah Junsu and Pho? O_o



Despite the turmoil between TVXQ//DBSK//Tohoshinki and SM Entertainment, the boys of DBSK have been quite busy. Jaejoong and Yoochun with their COLORS single topping the charts in Japan, Yunho with his acting on Heading to the Ground, Changmin with his preparations for his upcoming acting role, but what about Xiah Junsu?

Well, it seems Xiah Junsu has secretly opened up a Pho restaurant and has been busy with that. According to Women's Weekly in Japan, a Korean reporter recently took a trip to Xiah Junsu's new Vietnamese Pho restaurant in Seoul. The reporter stated that the food that was served was delicious and also stated that Xiah Junsu was hard at work in the kitchen. Junsu was seen talking to the kitchen staff and would stay in the back of the restaurant. The reporter went for a total of three days and saw Junsu at the restaurant each day.

Lim Yong Pil, a good friend of DBSK and former manager of So Ji Sup is also said to be part investor in the restaurant. There's also rumors that Micky Yoochun may be a part investor as the trio was frequently seen meeting privately. Lim Yong Pil also wrote on his minihompy, "Finally, I've started a business with my two younger brothers of DBSK." Showing further proof that Yoochun is also an investor.



Many people also claimed to have seen various members of DBSK eat randomly at the restaurant to show their support for Xiah Junsu and Micky Yoochun. Unfortunately, there's no specific information on the name of the restaurant or where exactly it's located, but I would love to stop by and eat there.

Ohhhh~! I wanna know where it is so I can pop up there next summer. xD

[INFO] Jung Yunho & Go Ara Kiss in ONE Take.



On their MBC drama, "Heading to the Ground," main characters and love interests Jung Yunho and Go Ara have a kiss scene. The two faux lovebirds accomplished the scene in one take! Kiss scenes usually require multiple takes. Does anyone remember 2NE1's Park Sandara and Lee Minho? That took about 100 takes...

The scene takes place in an alley type setting and if you've seen enough Korean dramas, that's a usual. Yunho confesses his feelings for Go Ara and kisses her immediately after. The staff had a good laugh from watching the two film the scene as they maintain a very friendly, sibling-like relationship with one another on set.



When asked about the one-take scene, Yunho commented, "At the time, I wasn't thinking about the actress Go Ara. I thought about her as girl on the show I know and got in the acting mode quickly. If the director yelled 'cut!' I thought I would get more embarrassed but thankfully Go Ara lead me well. I'm happy filming ended well."

Oh ho Yunho. xD Good job!
One take and it's all good. Hehe...
Eff. Now I know it's gonna happen.
Spoiled it for myself. -_-

[ADMIN POST] {PROJECT!} Chain of Faith RE:DBSK ~ I Believe...


Fear ends where faith begins.

We want the boys to have a piece of our (the fans) hearts and faith. We must remind them that through thick and thin, we fans (international, Big East, & Cassies) will always be there for them no matter what. They have always reminded us in so many different ways and words to Always keep the faith. Now it’s our turn to return the favor.

Here is what we propose; we would like to take the time to get all five boys engraved couple rings (couple ring = two rings), which well hang nicely on a chain necklace. Each boy will receive two seperate rings with two different engravings. “Always keep the faith” will be on one ring while the second will have the boy’s full name. For example “Kim Junsu” “Park Yoochun” “Kim Jaejoong” “Shim Changmin” “Jung Yunho”.

Why rings, you might ask? Well, a ring is a circle, which is considered a symbol of unity. It is also the symbol of infinity, without beginning or end, perfect, the ultimate geometric symbol. That is the definition of our love and faith for our boys. That is why we chose rings.

But we can’t do this without you! Please help fund this project and have the boys receive our love, faith, and hearts. Each person who donates will get credit and be placed on a special list that the boys will receive along with the gifts. The list of names will be on special, high quality, decorative paper that will be laminated in order to preserve it.



Goal: $300, which includes all supplies and shipping from USA.

Deadline: December 1, 2009 (if we reach our goal before that, we will order and send the rings sooner)

Donation Options:
PayPal (NOTE: PayPal does take out a small fee when using a debit/credit card)

[NEWS] 1o.15.o9 - The Boycott Continues.

1. Items to be Boycotted

  • All Korean singles, regular albums, goods, photos, live albums, DVDs related to Concerts/Events, photobooks and original character products.
  • All Japanese Single, regular SM-LICENSED albums (Japanese labeled products are excluded)Extra businesses related with SM Ent.: Extra businesses related with SM Ent.:Family restaurant (Ashley, Podonamu, e-table), Everysing, Clothing company SPAO
  • All kinds of answering tones (aka Coloring in Korea), ringtones, BGM, music (both streaming and downloading), UFO ringtones.
  • All the TVXQ songs in karaoke (The income goes straight to the creditor!)

2. SM Ent. is still neglecting the Korean fans.

  • For example, compared to the abrupt cancellation of SM TOWN LIVE '09 (without any good reason), SM Ent. is carrying out the China concert in Shanghai and even the Shenzhen Concert in November, with ticket sales open already.
  • SM Ent. is contradicting itself by continuing the foreign activities yet cancelling all activities in Korea.

3. Comparison between the Japanese License albums and Japanese albums.

Japanese singles and regular albums come out in two ways:

  • The 'SM-licensed 'Korean version', and the 'Japanese/HongKong Version' released by AVEX (Also known as a direct import).
  • As for the license, 100% of the income goes straight to SM Ent, thus SM-licensed albums are no different from the Korean albums.
  • Albums released by AVEX (labelled Rhythm zone) are not included.

4. Continuation of Boycott movement.

For the boycotting, we are seeking our rights as consumers, and this is the best way to sound our appeal. The first boycott movement clearly states it will continue until the following two aims are fulfilled:

  • 1) SM Ent. to improvement its treatment their consumers.
  • 2) SM Ent. to correct the unreasonable contract signed between the company and the boys.
  • The two aims have not been fulfilled, thus the boycott continues.
  • The boycott is voluntary and no enforcement will be made. However, please bear in mind that your choice can make a difference!

MBC official on the 14th said “Due to the poor audience rating record, “Heading To The Ground” will be ended early on the 5th next month.” he added, “while as the consequence, Lee Junki’s drama “Heroes” will air a week early on the 11th.”

[INFO] DBSK's Presence Made Known @ 2009 Dream Concert

Although the boys weren't there in person, their presense was among all those who came to the show. Cassiopeia was seen present to cheer for the boys and support them. Everyone was expecting sh-t to happen due to all the drama going on in the kpop industry but fandom was still there. Everyone sang along even if they weren't part of a fanclub. DBSK, although they weren't even there, the screams that they got when they appeared randomly on screen far exceeded any other fandoms. Jaejoong's bare chest = Cassi instant reaction.

[INFO] 'Heading To The Ground' Viewer Complaints

{{SPOILER ALERT}}
{{SPOILER ALERT}}
{{SPOILER ALERT}}

Viewers are apparently unhappy with the recent events of MBC’s Heading to the Ground The drama is now halfway through, and despite the soccer theme, the story shifted abruptly in Episode 5 to center around a mental ward, after Bong-kun (Yunho) suffered an accident. He had been saving Hae-bin (Go Ara) from falling into the Han River, and ended up in the hospital with amnesia.

This week, he finally recovered his memory and escaped the hospital, where a fire had broken out. He risked himself to rescue a fellow patient who had been a support to him during his stay.

As a result, viewers are voicing their complaints about the drama’s choppy plotting and the lack of connection to the previous story. Some point out that the story of Bong-kun being locked up in the hospital dragged on too long (”The Bong-kun who dreams of soccer disappeared, and we got a Bong-kun who dreams of escaping a mental hospital… it’s so improbable”).

Another comment complained, “I thought we were getting a soccer drama but that wasn’t it, then I thought it was a romance drama but that wasn’t it, then it turned into a One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest or Papillon drama, but finally it turns out that it’s a fantasy drama where you hit the wall once and the hospital collapses.”

Of course there are some who defend the latest storyline, saying it was touching to see Bong-kun saving his fellow patient-captive and showing some maturity in overcoming adversity.

Unfortunately for the drama, it’s still languishing in the bottom of the Wednesday-Thursday ratings; its last episode pulled in a 5.1% against Swallow the Sun’s 18.8% finale and My Fair Lady’s 14.1%. Perhaps they’ll do better since one of those is now over and SBS’s new drama You’re Beautiful kicks in next week.

[TRANS] 1o.o4.o9 DBSK in Tears @ Shanghai 'MIROTIC' Concert

On the 2nd of October, Dong Bang Shin Ki held their 3rd Asia Live Tour at ShangHai HongKou Stadium, revealing their charisma.

Chinese Cassiopeia's hands held “Miduhyo” banners to support the boys. They expressed their belief towards Dong Bang Shin Ki regarding their lawsuit against SM Ent., believing that no matter what happens, the five of them will walk together till the end, which had touched the boys, and tears were unbearable.

Dong Bang Shin Ki had performed numerous popular songs like "Wrong Number," "HEY! Don't bring me down," etc.

All the fans holding onto red lightsticks to support Dong Bang Shin Ki, later switched to green, and gold during their solo performances; all different colors filled the hall of the HongKou Stadium.

On top of that, after the concert ended, beautiful, touching and memorable phrases appeared on the fans’ blogs which show how successful the concert was.

"P/S. Miduhyo = I Believe"

[NEWS] Does DBSK's Jaejoong Make Your Heart Flutter?



Apparently fangirls in Japan seem to think so, and we can't find any argument in that!

In the October issue of Nicola Magazine, Jaejoong smuggled his way in the 'Top 30 Godly Men Who Make Your Heart Beat Faster The More You See Them'.

The mag featured 30 pieces of eligible eye candy, like Shun Oguri and Gackt, who involuntarily induce unexplainable hormonal and behavioral effects in females.

In the past, the eldest member of DBSK has found himself ranked quite highly in polls that involved good looks time and time again, even snagging first place in allkpop's 'Hottest Male Star Under 25' in the past.



As usual, Jaejoong was the only non-Japanese individual on the list, demonstrating that his beauty appeals, not only to Korea, but a great majority of Asia as well.

With his wide, glimmering eyes that you can easily get lost in, angelic, dreamy looks that make you question whether he is even human, and - not to mention - a kick-ass body that you just want to rub oil all over, Jaejoong proves to be quite a stiff competition.

Is there anyone who even stands a chance against DBSK's pretty boy?

Oh looky! My beautiful Jae earned yet another title<3
I swear I really do question if he actually exists sometimes. x]
But...I've seen him in person so...I can't keep asking that. XD
