Well, of course I don’t wish you guys to take that literally. LOL.
Just want to share an interesting and fun article I got from Allkpop:
DBSK: AROUND THE WORLD 60 TIMES
The sights of DBSK members hurrying through various international airports and avoiding grabby hands shouldn’t be unfamiliar to any fans of the boys. According to estimated calculations, each of the members has logged approximately 300,000 miles in airline mileage since their first overseas activities in April 2004 up to September 2008.
For the folks not in the USA (no thank you metric), that is over 482,803 kilometers!
The circumference of the earth is around 40,000 kilometers, which means each of the boys could have circled the earth 12 times since 2004. The five of them together would have traveled 60 times around the world by now.
Another indication of the high demand outside of Korea for DBSK is the MKMF Overseas Award vote. DBSK is leading with over 95% of the votes at the moment. It seems Cassiopeia has mobilized and is ready to pull off anything for the end of the year award shows. Check out the current stats:
TVXQ! Mirotic 243,054 (96.17%)
Super Junior-Happy Cooking? Cooking! (Where are the ELF?) 2,709 (1.07%)
Lee Hyo-ri U-Go-Girl 1,556 (0.62%)
Epik High One 843 (0.33%)
Wonder Girls So Hot 835 (0.33%)
Girls’ Generation Kissing You 813 (0.32%)
Big Bang Day by Day 792 (0.31%)
SS501 A Song Calling for You 724 (0.29%)
SG Wannabe LaLaLa 702 (0.28%)
MC Mong Circus 698 (0.28%)
I guess the debate about who will come back on top can be put to rest now. As much as I would love for DBSK to win in every category, I almost wish there was a bit of real competition.
Amazing, right? Honestly, I applaud the author for even thinking about this kind of thing. *claps hands*
Regarding the voting for MKMF, I’m happy that the Dong Bang boys are leading the way. Aside from the Overseas Award, they’re actually nominated in 5 other categories. I actually don’t know their current standing since I haven’t checked the updates yet but I hope they’re doing good (they were leading ever since the start for all the categories). I want to go and vote for them but it’s a bit complicated for me especially since the site is in Korean.
Having said that, for those who know how to vote (especially DBSK fans) please keep voting for the boys UNTIL THE VERY END. Remember that WE SHOULD NEVER BE COMPLACENT EVEN IF THEY ARE LEADING BECAUSE ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN. For most of the nominations, the artists behind them still has a chance to catch-up so DBSK fans should keep on voting, araso?
Let’s make 2008 a GREAT YEAR for DBSK by adding up to the achievements they’ve already received this year. :D
