At first.. I’m really going to ignore this whole issue… then i saw this.. some are too far-fetched..and totally unrelated to the main issue……….
The first issue about SHCJ started the anti-BEAST rumor in Japan and made Yoseob depressed about it.
I would like to ask: When anti-BEAST Japan issue started? It was around last summer I think.. and it was started because Beast refused to wear kimonos in Japan for nationalism reason, no? And this color issue was started around 5-6 days before MBC Idol Championship started. HOW does SHCJ is the one who started it then when the timeline is clearly different?
Or If we are mistaken about when is the issue started.. then let me ask you. Have you investigated thoroughly who spread rumor? is that SHCJ for real or a person who said s/he is SHCJ or some random people? Do you get any proofs on that? No proofs = it is unfounded rumors and accusations.
and most importantly, WHY SHOULD SHCJ START THAT RUMOR? Because of the color issue? I do not think so. SHCJ won’t do such things to that extent. We are a fandom who mostly only supports our 6 men. They are about to comeback on March after 4 long years hiatus. Do you think we will jeopardize their comeback by starting such issues? Nope. Because we are busy preparing support for their comeback and sincerely wish no problems occurred before that.
The second issue, about us harassing Yoseob and crossing the line by bringing fans’ issue to idols. For this, I and other SHCJs who weren’t present in the venue, can not clarify anything. Because we do not know what issue K-SHCJ said to Yoseob (or was it even SHCJ who talked to him). We only knew Yoseob tweeted about SHCJ in that MBC Idol Championship night.
We can only say.. maybe it is because B2uty and SHCJs have different way of thinking and dealing with issues… For SHCJ, talking about fandoms’ problem to Shinhwa members is not crossing the line. or vice versa, Shinhwa whines to us about their problems is nothing suprising either. It is better for them to know what is going on in their fandom. It is better for us to know what they are going through. They can scold us if they think we made mistakes. They can give us advice if we need guidance. That is Shinhwa and SHCJs.
Quoting a SHCJ unnie
“I think B2UTY will understand SHCJ someday (when they have something important to protect themselves). They will think back & realize the kind of blessing it is to have fans who are still care enough about their idols’ identity to fight for it after a decade. They will also learn to be proud of what Yoseob did instead of feeling sorry for it. The luckiest fandoms are the ones where the focus of the fandom cares enough to intervene. Perhaps b2uties’ mentality is different from SHCJ…where fandom and idol are mutually exclusive?”
SHCJ is from first generation. and B2UTY is from third generation. It is possible for us to have different fandom culture or way of thinking. So, instead of accusing each other, can we try to understand and be considerate about our way of thinking? To understand each other better.
We talk to Yoseob not for mean reasons. I believe KSHCJ did not “harass” him either. He will scold us if we did, right? It is known that Yoseob is one of the rare idol who can guide fans well, by scolding or advising. He is like our Wannie oppa whom we go to everytime we need advises or scoldings ^^;; We see them as a wise person. I think that is why K-SHCJ came to him (IF they do talk about him about this issue.)
The last one, on the color issue.
when ppl accuses us being rude or immature bcos of that matter.. (I think I quote 6rystalis unnie too many times LOLOL)
“Even if it’s just a handful of dirt that doesn’t belong to me & I ask twice & thrice not to step on it b/c it’s very important to me, yet u still insist on sweeping it away and calling names…. IMO, it’s not me who’s being rude. So what if it’s the smelliest sock in the world? It’s been w/ me thru tears & blood, pain & joy, hard work & heartbreak, and years upon years. Don’t call it stupid b/c I don’t want to give it a way.”
more or less like that.
second and third generation idols..may not see this as important. but for first generation, it is. you can just use the same color without asking permission. especially to the one who has not disbanded for 14 years, has been using this certain color, this color in kpop fandom has been associated with them for years thru thick and thin. to the extent, everytime the members and fans see this color, they’ll think of each other. It is precious. so precious that the usually-peaceful-and-harmless fandom became terrifyingly scary in defending it…
This ‘fight’ started on this issue. So b2uty can see why SHCJ reacted to that? Color issue is not trivial or immature matter for us. It is precious. Anyone would not one their most prized possession got snatched away from them, right?
And for SHCJ… maybe it is better if we pretend not to see if other fandoms use it for cheering tools in ONE occasion only.. Hyesung fans did it once in Hyesung Japan 2007 concert (thanks Phi unnie XD) for some inexplicable reason either. But other than that ONE occasion, Shinhwa as a group and Shinhwa members as an individual ALWAYS use orange as their OFFICIAL color. So..if other fandoms used it NOT for official color..let us be silent, okay? Like what Eric oppa said “As you wake up to a new day everyday, don’t waver because of trivial matters and instead look at the big picture” ~ Eric (Thanks Phi unnie XD). Do not start fighting over it unless they want to use it as their OFFICIAL color, alright? 😄
