[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.
I knew it all along...SM tried SO hard to hide this information.
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.

[VIDEO] Cassiopeia, ELFs & Hottests Call for DBSK



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...

Wahhhh even over there in Vietnam they're missed T___T

[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.

So THIS is what our little Junsu's been doing =D
Ohhhh~! I wanna know where it is so I can pop up there next summer. xD

[NEWS] U-Know Yunho is Lonely



A brief interview was conducted with TVXQ//DBSK//Tohoshinki's leader Yunho during the photo shoot for W Korea. During this interview, he stated that he misses his band mates, that it's a lonely experience going solo as an actor on his drama, Heading to the Ground. He continued by saying that he needed go through this whole acting process, as it was a good learning experience for him and that this whole ordeal will help him grow.

Awww...he misses the guys T___T
I miss them all..I know how you feel Yunho...
It's ok. At least you'll see them soon enough.

[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."

credits: allkpop & cassiopeialuv

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)
Concealed Cash (USD – at sender’s risk)

[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!

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.

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.

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
