Reblogged this on JYJ's Fan Worlds.
Tvxq t-shirts? Are they aware of the dress code for JJ’s solo FM?
Thanks for your support. However, he is no longer TVXQ, he is JJ from JYJ. Wearing these shirt will hurt him and prove that you don’t respect his choice and present. Please follow the rules and do not wear these shirt to the fan meeting.
It’s pretty evident that this is not related to the official FM but just a flash mob organised by fans of JJ. Whether they wear these same shirts on the actual FM or not is another issue but even JJ’s twitter profile says JYJ from TVXQ so by saying that he is no longer from TVXQ may hurt him more than actually wearing those shirts. I dont see how these shirts are a form of disrespect to him, given that this is a fan-organised flash mob. Just your last sentence would have sufficed, dear. 🙂
But either ways, this flash mob has already been carried out and cannot be undone. Apparently they were just told to wear red, which they have done. They weren’t rude either and didn’t do anything outrageously disrespectful so let’s all not make an issue out of the dress code here kay? 🙂
I totally agree with your comment, thank you for being so mature and coherent. Sometimes I don’t understand some people, telling as a fact (even putting words on JYJ’s mouths) that they don’t want to be related to TVXQ at all, as if they wanted to erase that part of his lives, which I believe they don’t (we’ve seen them talking about their days as TVXQ, and even singing songs of the 5 member group, and as you said, even Jae’s twitter profile states “JYJ from TVXQ” so yeah, no need to say the kind of comments the person above you posted.
How come wearing a TVXQ t-shirt proves that they have no respect for JJ? he himself as JYJ from TVXQ on his twitter profile, so I don’t think he would mind about it, plus…they still keep the color red as representative of their fandom, so I see no problem.
The fans who wore anything irrelevant to JJ & JYJ were prevented from going up the stage and participating in the games with JJ in the Thai fan meeting. That was all in accordance with JJ’s request.
I have no problem with any color, you can wear anything, red is also a color that represents JYJ. Green is a color that represent JJ fans.
JYJ from TVXQ is a testament to his history. JJ contributed a lot to TVXQ & he would like new fans to know what he achieved in the past as well. However, JJ & JYJ needs the active fan support & acknowledgment of JYJ who are blocked everywhere. if the coward media in Korea and Japan are too afraid to promote them & credit them; Let us their fans be their promoter and support.
What better way to support than to show him that we respect his present and support his efforts as JJ & JYJ.
When TVXQ visits your country wear these shirts & support as much as you want, this is JYJ & that;s why it’s irrelevant & not appropriate.
But still, this was a fan event,…not the fanmeeting~
Actually, if all VN teen girls come to JJ’s FM, they should dress the white long dress like the one in the picture. That dress looks unique and pretty on them and may impress JJ to see their beauty like no other FM fans fashion have so far. A lot better than the red shirts.
Just an observation on beauty and fashion^^ for fans
Vietnamese Fans are so pretty, thank you for the effort to welcome Jaejoong, a very nice gesture.
If you really love to wear red, can you have ones printed with JYJ, TVXQ is SM’s duo NOW, no Kim Jaejoong in it
It’s very clear from Jae’s bio, JYJ from TVXQ, it’s “from” so it means they were part from it, but not anymore. Why do we have to promote JYJ’s past group when it has all the life support to survive (just imagine a dying man in an Intensive Care Unit, everything is provided to survive) but JYJ is suppressed with all those life support, can we just take advantage to promote JYJ in Jaejoong’s event PLEASE? Does it really hurt to wear a JYJ printed shirt or no print at all, why do we have to promote SM’s idol in JYJ’s event?
Great effort ladies! I too really like the white dresses with the Minnie ears. It would really cute to have a group dress like that. Really original. Lol at the woman wearing the red Heinekein (?) shirt. It just made me laugh out loud. Nothing personal, just lol.
oh hahaha, yay, it’s a T-shirt with “Heineken” on. I have some red DBSK 5 and YJ T-shirts and a “Heineken” one and a black “I Love KJJ” one in my wadrobe. However, the admins told us we should dress in red and shouldn’t wear (too many) of the 5. So, “Heineken” was my best choice then. My friends did laugh a lot, too XD.
Will you be at JJ’s FM in Vietnam?
Awww thanks for the explanation, though none was needed. I was more laughing at myself for being able to pick that one shirt out of the crowd and had a giggle (and then poured myself an adult beverage).
Consequently, you were single handedly able to achieve a red and green ocean while still being able to reference JJ’s love of alcohol. ;P If there’s one thing they can say about us fans is that we are able to reference/support many points at once.
Naw, I live in the United States, so I wasn’t able to/will not be able to attend any of the FMs. (sad face) I hope that everyone that did had a good time and can’t wait for the fan accounts/photos/fan cams.
Ooh the red Nii shirt was really cute too!
Great job ladies!!!! Awesome. Maybe many of the fans don’t really know what is going on with JYJ n SME as the news may not be translated to their language. Hope the organiser will announce on appropriate dress code to support JJ. Or have more JYJ or JJ words on the Tshirt if they cannot afford to buy or print. Be creative and design your own JYJ/JJ on a white Tshirt.
Hello, Vietnamese fan here~
Actually, the media and fan’s activities in my country are pretty fast, so there’s nothing like “Maybe many of the fans don’t really know what is going on with JYJ n SME as the news may not be translated to their language” 🙂 And about the problem of those T-shirt~ excuse me, can we stop it here and enjoy the flashmob? For how long have we argued about this? And let me say it again, they DO prevent us from wearing anything related to TVXQ to the fanmeeting,but IS THIS FLASHMOB A FANMEETING? is there any rule that said we can’t wear those T-shirt while doing flashmob? == We can wear anything we want as long as we don’t wear TVXQ thing in the coming fanmeeting ok? And wearing those T-shirt hurt Jaejoong? How do you know? Are you him? or are you his relative? So just stop it already, we are proud of what we’ve done to welcome him and we’ve all grown up people so we know what is right to do and to respect him. And this is the activity of Vietnamese fans so if you have any problems, then wait til Jaejoong comes to your country and you can do better than us~
That’s all i wanna say~ Thanks~
Because it was a fan event, why not take this rare chance to promote and support JJ & JYJ.
If you don’t know about their current condition & struggle which I highly doubt anyone is Asia is unaware of, please do some research.
SM artists have 2 mega companies behind their back, both are not sparing any effort to block JJ & JYJ, & are doing everything to promote their artists. Why be another tool in their arson to stab JYJ & JJ in this event organized solely to JJ & by extension JYJ.
I’m not asking you to stop supporting your bias. All I’m asking is to show some tact, sensitivity, & respect in this fan meeting.
Please don’t repeat what happened in NJ fan meeting & do not participate in the harassment & abuse of JJ.
JJ loves all fans, however he also demands respect and appreciation for his solo & current group efforts.
Stars and their music to give strength and support, easier to get through tough times with their help, because you need to let go and give time to rethink. Live and let live, that would be important, however, is just not easy to implement. Kim Jae worked over 10 years in this business, it can handle many, trust Him.
