Cassiopeia Fandom Drama
Earlier last week:
If I understood correctly, from the posts I’ve read on hellothrice’s tumblr:
Yoochun k-stans were pissed at CJES about Yoochun’s dropped CFs. They started hating on/slandering Jaejoong because they thought Jae was one of the reasons CJES was dropping Yoochun’s individual CFs in favour of JYJ CFs.
CJES responded to the Yoochun K-stans, and this enraged the K-stans/fans of Jaejoong, who believed that in responding to those YC stans, CJES was acknowledging claims that Jaejoong was at fault for the dropped individual YC CFs.
I think Jaejoong fans demanded an apology from CJES.
There was also a thing with Japanese fans given tickets to a Korean fan event or something like that. And of course, K-fans were enraged by the unfairness of it all and started hating on CJES. /facepalm
I personally believe those fans are a plague in the fandom. They should leave JYJ’s management to their managers. I understand that they love and care for their bias but they’re going too far. They’re too invested in something that doesn’t concern them.
Later Last Week:
International fans, being unable to just stay away from the drama, also decided to start fighting among themselves.
This time though, the parties involved were JYJ stans, OT5 and YunJae shippers.
Now, I believe:
- JYJ stans = those who made up the name Orion for JYJ’s fandom and tend to disregard the fact that JYJ have hinted that they missed being DBSK - thus JYJ stans are those completely disregarding JYJ’s past and friendship with Yunho and Changmin.
- OT5 = people who support both HoMin and JYJ OR people who support DB5K and want HoMin and JYJ to reunite. AKTFers.
- YunJae shippers= part of OT5. Believe Yunho and Jaejoong are both gay and in love with each other (which is totally probable but, I digress)
From what I’ve read around the internet (please take this with a grain of salt), international JYJ stans were angry after the OT5/YunJae’s fans’ successful celebration of YunJae’s 5th anniversary on Twitter and started getting their fellow Korean JYJ stans to report YunJae fans and OT5, claiming that they were spreading false rumours about Jaejoong and that they were tweeting Jaejoong pornographic material.
Now, I don’t know about the veracity of those claims. They could be partly true. Being on twitter myself, I can say that I’ve seen quite a few disturbing YunJae tweets to Jaejoong.
I’m in another K-pop fandom where there’s an unwritten law never to tweet or to mention our ships to the boys. However, I know that Cassiopeia is different. YunJae were practically shipping themselves. I understand why the following is SO strong and I respect that.
However, now that Jaejoong and Yunho have fallen out, I kinda understand those JYJ stans’ POV. Constantly reminding Jaejoong of Yunho, whether they were boyfriends or just bros, must be hurting him. Jae’s must already be missing YH enough, without needing our constant reminders. Also, tweeting him pornographic YunJae pictures (knowing he reads his mentions) is kind of disrespectful.
I’m not siding with those JYJ stans, though. Because reporting innocent OT5 and YunJae shippers, who didn’t even spread any negative rumour about Jaejoong is just petty and immature.Telling OT5 to stop keeping the faith or telling them they’re not real fans and delusional if they’re still holding on to their hope IS also immature.
It just pains me that the fandom is so divided lately. While we’re fighting among ourselves, we’re forgetting to support our rising Gods of the East. Sure, the fanwar has allowed us to trend on twitter and show our support to them.
However, we could have used our time more constructively; to vote for them in that Hangul website poll, for instance. JYJ came out 3rd and TVXQ wasn’t even in the top 5. Way to go, Cassiopeia.
And we could have used our time to watch our sexy Junsu’s Dance version of Tarantallegra. Can you believe it’s been one day and there’s only 194,072 views
on the video? I am very disappointed, Cassiopeia.
I wish you could all step away from the fandom just for an hour or so, put on your favourite DB5K, TVXQ or JYJ album/playlist and remind yourself why you joined this fandom. It wasn’t for all the drama. It wasn’t to fight with your fellow Cassies.
It was to support those men who made you smile with their amazing talent.
Whether you only like two stars, three or maybe just one out of the five, you must remember that the constellation Cassiopeia wouldn’t exist without the five stars.
DB5K wouldn’t be what they are today without Cassiopeia, DB5K wouldn’t be the Gods of Kpop if not for the five members. JYJ wouldn’t be such an amazing trio of dorks if there hadn’t been DB5K. TVXQ wouldn’t have been a such an amazing duo of BAMFs if there hadn’t been DB5K. Please remember this, Cassiopeia.
