I haven't posted in a while lately, there's just been too much depression in the fandom. But I saw this article recently over at DBSKnights. Just thought I'd share it with my fellow Cassiopeians.
911 is over, SMTown is over. Listening to the screams of desperation on the audio stream had so many of us crying rivers. This explosion of emotion is the result of a year's worth of waiting...
Yes, because they're TVXQ, they are our TVXQ, whether it be 2 or 3, we'll accept them all the same. As long as you're good and well, as long as you're able to stand on that stage, even if there's only one of you, we'll love you all the same, because it is Jung Yunho, Shim Changmin, Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun and Kim Junsu that we love, but above all, it's TVXQ.
Watching rookies appear one after another in Korea, watching their popularity rise and yours drop has made no difference to us. We cannot and will not forget. Seeing other artists perform on stage may give us a moment of satisfaction, but then we see the five of you, and you never fail to leave us in awe with your talent. The reason you're so well loved across Asia is because you're worth it. This is why your fan cafe numbers are still sky high at 780,000. Because we're willing to love you for the rest our lives~~~
We will never give up until we see that you've found your happiness, and when the day comes, we'll bury you deep down in our hearts~~~
I know, there is a lot that Cassiopeia is afraid of talking about, we're afraid of watching videos, afraid of seeing photos or even reading news. We find solace in other artists. I've been through that too, I was afraid of the internet, but I was never able to forget, ever. It was a period of intense heartache…
Even if you cannot let go, try and accept them the way they are. Regardless of the current situation, the men that we love have remained. Their smiles and laughter may be a little empty, a little forced, but they've also become that much stronger, and so we should wait. We must wait for their return, and when they do, we'll give them and give ourselves the most beautiful red ocean and cherish the world that belongs to us alone. Until then, we must wait, even if loving them means not being able to let go, eventually we'll get used to the pain and learn to love that too~~~
We look forward to seeing another red ocean on October 23rd, one for the other three at the exact same place, Hongkou~~. We'll scream Dong Bang Shin Ki with everything we've got and we'll wait.
Because we were separated to be reunited and we will continue to believe.
