The Comission of Youth Protection have said that the words and the meaning of ‘Jumon-Mirotic’ were not the only problem but the entire lyrics’ meaning was harmful and overly sexual.

After the Comission of Youth Protection had released this statement SM.ENT said ” Even before when the order had been put against MIROTIC, we have clearly negotiated and tried to explain the real meaning and explanation of the lyrics , but even after this the results came out unexpectedly and we are bewildered as of this moment” ” and the JUMON -MIROTIC’s lyrical meaning is entirely different and miles away from the erotic or sexual that the association is making it to be ”

Yay! Way to go SM! *claps hands enthusiastically* Although SM always kills our pockets because of the so many expensive CD versions, DVDs, and photobooks they release and becuase it doesn’t give the boys their much needed rest, at least the company knows how to protect and stand-up for its artists when the need arises. This is the first time I actually applauded a move by SM and I have to admit that I’m more than happy they did this. I don’t care if LSM has a different reason than protecting DBSK in taking this legal action. As long as the company makes an effort to do something about the situation, I’m totally fine with it. :D

Let’s just wait on the outcome of this legal action by SM Entertainment. I just hope that whatever the result will be, it’ll be for the good of DBSK and the majority.

SM Entertainment made a statement a few days ago that DBSK won’t be attending the three biggest music festivals in Korea namely SBS, KBS, and MBC which will be happening this December 29, 30, and 31 respectively. The reason for this non-attendance of DBSK in the three biggest and most awaited music fests in Korea is because of their participation in this year’s Kohaku in Japan. Kohaku, one of the most prestigious events in Japan that any artist could ever attend will be happening on the 31st of December but the boys need to be there days before to practice for their performances in the said event. Having said this, they definitely have no time to attend the three music festivals as they will be in Japan by that time.

Naturally, many fans talked about this said press release by SM and some even voiced out their complaints regarding this issue. As what I have said, these three Gayo events are the most awaited events in Korea and it is but right for one of the most successful artists of Korea to attend these. Moreover, although it’s true that their participation in Kohaku might be a once in a lifetime chance for them, we can’t deny the fact that since DBSK is currently promoting their 4th album in Korea, it will be more proper and advantageous to them to make an appearance on these ceremonies. Besides, attending the three Gayo events is a good way to thank all those who supported them in their Korean comeback (a.k.a Cassiopeia).

SM Entertainment might have felt the importance of these festivals too since just after a few days of releasing their statement that DBSK won’t be attending the the three Gayo Daejuns, they’ve changed their minds and thought about ways on how DBSK might be able to participate in the said events even if they’re in Japan. The article below says it all:

Will DBSK be able to attend the BIG 3 Music Fests? ( GAYO DAEJUNS)? MAYBE!!

This is great, but there’s a chance DBSK will not make it to the BIG 3 GAYO DAEJUNS. The GAYO FESTS PDS have however gone under negotiations for DBSK’s attendance for these programs

SM. ENTERTAINMENT and NEWSEN in a phone interview have said ” on the 30~31 DBSK will be in Japan for the Japanese Ceremonies. but we are trying to have negotiations with the 3 channels for also airing DBSK attendance on the GAYO fests.

The 3 Gayo Daejuns will take place on the 29th SBS, 30th for KBS, and the 31st for MBC. IF the case it is impossible for DBSK to attend on the 30th and the 31st. Because of this there are also talks that DBSK will be able to perform live for the GAYO daejuns LIVE in Japan instead.

I don’t know how this will work but I really hope they’ll be able to make DBSK appear on the three festivals because if not, I’ll be really sad for Cassiopeia. I have nothing against the boys doing activities in Japan despite their album promotions in Korea (I’m actually proud of the boys for managing to be successful in both Korea and Japan at the same time) but I just feel a bit sorry for Cassiopeia. It’s not that they’re complaining but I just feel that they’ve waited so long for the boys to comeback in Korea and I think that they deserve to be given the most attention right now since afterall, once the boys go back to Japan Cassiopeia will probably have to wait for a long time to see the boys again. Although I do understand the need for DBSK to continue their activities in Japan, I also feel that they should give more priority to their Korean activities right now since, well, that’s why they called it “Korean comeback” right? I may be wrong and other people might not agree with my opinions but I think these three music festivals are what Cassies are waiting for so I really hope SM and the three stations will be able to find ways to make the boys attend these gatherings.

Ok, sorry for the long essay. I got carried away. LOL.

This is a 3mins. long version of the 25th Japanese single of DBSK entitled “Bolero”, which will be released this coming January. It was played in the most recent episode of their Japanese radio program, Bigeastation.

This song is just lovely! It has a different feel to it compared to the previous ballads that they’ve performed. I love the melody and the accompaniment because it’s so relaxing and has a calming effect on me. The boys really are venturing and experimenting on different genres and styles in singing. They keep on trying out new things and I’m glad that everything always turns out greater than expected.

I know I’ve said this in almost all of my previous posts pertaining to DBSK’s new songs but really, I am so excited to hear the official version of this song. I swear DBSK’s new songs never fail to excite me because they always turn out amazing. :D
