dbsk vs sme

2 Nov

Anyone remotely following kpop news will have heard of the whole DBSK (Yoochun, Jaejoong, Junsu) vs SME lawsuit (if not, where the hell have you been?! Check out Kbites / allkpop for updates).  Now, I’m not a huge follow of the boys. They got some pretty smooth moves and awesome vocals, but they’re too boy band-ish for my taste. So forgive me for my lighthearted view of the situation, I just find it pretty hilarious.

First off, Yunho and and Changmin finally broke their silence and released a statement, which basically screwed their fellow members over in support of 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…

Translation: “I give you 10 days to beg forgiveness and ring my ding dong otherwise, screw you and see-you!”

Then, SME obviously threatened SHINee that they would have to wear bright skinny pants from the GEE video and make them adopt the same hair styles as Brian and Hwanhee (Fly to the Sky) had if they did not release a statement in support of SME.

SME helped us a lot in the beginning as we didn’t really know what to do. But as we gained more experience, we start to express our opinions. The company reflects our opinions on many things such as the lyrics, pairing of members and our style. Without such supportive environment, we won’t be able to sing our songs like we sing them now.

SME listens to the artists’ opinions and everyone is close, unlike other entertainment companies. Everyone respects each other and supports each other, just like you can see in Dream Concert or SM Concert. Artists of SME are trained well from the beginning to the point where people say that SME’s artists are very well mannered.

Regarding f(x), a recent rookie group that debuted from SME, SHINee said;

We’ve seen them since they were trainees but didn’t expect them to debut so quickly. Did not think Sulli would be so tall and beautiful, haha. Now we know what it feels like to have juniors, and we can see why groups that are senior to us have been so nice and caring to us. We’re following the tradition by giving lots of advice to f(x).

Translation: SME is full of win, all other ent. groups suck ass. Talking of ass, I want a piece of Sulli’s

Day by Day



If that wasn’t enough, they got the big guns out. That’s right.  They asked daddy Yunho and daddy Changmin to release a statement too.

Don’t really understand why Yunho and Changmin are coming out in FULL support of SME.  They’re getting paid peanuts considering they are arguably the biggest male group in Asia.

10 days left – what will the three amigo’s decide?

    i am actually siding with sme on this matter. hm..based on what i hear from my friends who work in sme and other companies (jtune,yge)…sm might be wrong in certain contract condition (which is standard btw) but for this specific issue..the 3 fellas are.

    wishing them all the best tho. sme is finally starting their attack. more statement and ‘secrets’ should be out soon ..

      ooo insider info from izzie??? ^^

      ahhh this whole thing makes my head hurt. but i for one don’t trust the written word– i want to see HoMin actually SAY something.

      but i think having unfair contracts as a “standard” is kinda sad.

      i think i’m just gonna watch from the sidelines– peeking through my fingers. i just don’t want a breakup– is that too much to ask for???

    ah the this issue. I am a huge DBSK fan, and all the news surrounding this is too confusing. I think I’m just sitting until something concrete happens. All this he said she said stuff is getting boring, it’s just making the fan girls go nuts and well…that’s about it

      yeah… i’m so over the whole issue. too many articles coming out every 5 min. yawn.
