Chinese fans at Baidu has released a statement regarding their reaction on the cancellation of the Mirotic concert in Shenzhen:
Chinese Fans Response To Cancellation Of Concert
This morning we received news about the cancellation of the Shenzhen concert. Considering the court dispute at the moment, this wasn’t a decision not thought of.
We cannot say “everyone please calm down, please don’t say anything bad”, because that isn’t facing the truth. However, we hope no one says anything that would hurt the members of TVXQ, doing something that shows you don’t understand the five members. The people we love, they did not do anything wrong. I hope everyone sees and clearly understands this point.
The Shenzhen concert was decided upon by SME and the organiser after the three members proposed the lawsuit. If everything was normal, activities organised for the artist by the company acceptable, but no matter when, it needs to respect the artists wills and thoughts. Artists are not tools, they are human too. SME had secretly accepted the offer of overseas activities without discussing the details with the five members, this action is not respectful to the five members of TVXQ.
At the same time, because of the decision between SME and the Chinese concert organiser, it has led to losses for the fans, and this is not forgivable. Because of SME’s own decision that led to economic and psychological losses of Chinese and overseas fans, we should receive a proper explanation and compensation.
Since the start of the lawsuit, SME had pushed all the blame upon the members, using unrelated topics to cover the real problem, making all of TVXQ’s fans feel very disappointed and angry. Being Korea’s top agency, not respecting group members, ignoring fans reasonable requests, and during the lawsuit which started as a simple issue that could of ended well, but didn’t because of the various disruptions and accusations created against the three members. This issue not only led to the five members of TVXQ go under stress and pain, but it also led fans to fall into despair, to the point where the fans split. Actions like these 令人不齿.
For this times Shenzhen concert, SME again pushes the blame towards the members, making us fans feel very disappointed and angry, we do not hold anymore trust or hope towards SME. It is not the members fault, yet they have them to shoulder the responsibility, letting them face criticisms, this is what the company that brought them up do. This is unacceptable.
We cannot represent everyone, but representing all the fans supportive of TVXQ from Baidu, we cannot forgive SME’s continual injuries and stress given to the three members. The cancellation of the Shenzhen concert is all because of SME’s contract signed with the organiser, without consulting the members, it has no relation to any of the TVXQ members. SME, please stop bringing out all these rumours, which end up hurting the members and splitting the fans.
On another note, we feel dissatisfied with the Chinese organiser of the Shenzhen concert due to their signed documents lying to the fans. Even if we understand that the project needs to have communication with SME, but to make an irresponsible promise with the fans, they too have an undeniable responsibility.
〓Words to everyone〓
First of all, what we want to say most to everyone is – please understand our boys. Following them for nearly six years, we have seen them fulfill their promises bit by bit, watching them carry through with the stress and exhaustion at 1002 in Shanghai moved us, seeing them work so hard up till now, working their best till now. If you truly love them, then you cannot ignore their pure feelings towards their fans. The five members treasure their fans a lot, and this doesn’t need to be judged by others, but it is to be embedded deep in our own hearts.
Therefore, please do not say anything that will hurt them, don’t say anything about not understanding them. Their intention, their pressure, their pains, only we understand the best.
We don’t hope to see any fans of one member give stress to the other members at this time, we hope even more so to not see fans hurting each other. That would be a very immature attitude to have at this time. It is not any of the members wrong, so please do not bother them, don’t let them feel wronged. Everyone please, no matter if you’re a fan of the group or just one member, look at the result of truth and false being mixed together, don’t hide away because you’ll get hurt, because it’s hurting your own family, hurting the members of TVXQ.
On the topic of the Shenzhen concert, our boys have taken in a lot of fault, and in this situation with the court case not being solved, SM has continuously given pressure to the members, hurting them and splitting the fans. If you force them to Shenzhen, then who would be happy? Seeing them smile to us with that exhaustion, will we feel happy? The amount of pressure they take up, is unimaginable by us. The five now are under a lot of hardship, yet they haven’t given up, they keep on persisting, and it’s because of the four words “TVXQ”. If you see this, if you truly love them or just one, if you see someone you love and see them being hurt in silence, they rather stand in between the speculations and the low people, you will not not understand, what they do that for. [T/N TBH, i didn’t really get that last line.. >_<]
So under these circumstances, please stand together with them, everyone please give them all your love and support. Us, that’s all we’ve been doing since.
I believe that many of the bars(on baidu) have seen our drafts for support for the Shenzhen concert, the bar has worked very hard for this. Cheering items have been made, backstage and basic items have also been purchased. Under this situation, to us, it’s also a really great hit. But right now, we must stay strong to protect our boys, and not let the innocent be harmed by rumours, this is both unfair to them and us.
This time the bar has decided on the main theme to be “Stand By You”, no matter if the concert is opening or not, please come with us to fulfill our promises. No matter what happens, we believe them and stand by them.

I really admire the Chinese fans for their statement. I know the concert being canceled was hard for them since they already made preparations but still they chose to believe the boys and understand what they’re going through. This statement by Chinese fans showed the maturity of TRUE DBSK fans and their trust in the members. This also showed that TRUE DBSK fans won’t be fooled by SM’s lies and dirty tricks.
But sadly, that’s not the case for all “fans”. I know for a fact that some “fans” didn’t have the same reaction as the Chinese Cassies had and I’m a bit sad to know that. Yes, I do understand that they must have made a lot of preparations for this already but it’s still disappointing to know that these so-called “fans” who keep on saying “always keep the faith” are actually not living true to their word and are blaming JaeChunSu because of something that isn’t their fault at all. Its a shame to know that these “fans” claim to understand, support and love the members but here they are, getting angry at JaeChunSu because of a single concert being canceled. To all those fans, let me ask you where has your faith and trust in the boys go? Is the cancellation of a single concert the limit of your love for them? By getting angry at JaeChunSu and blaming them for this, you’re actually doing SM a favor and fulfilling their goal of turning the fans against the three members. By blaming JaeChunSu, it only shows that your love for the boys isn’t enough to trust and understand their decisions.
Its really sad to know that a couple of “fans” are faltering just because of this but I’m happy to know that majority of the DBSK fans – TRUE DBSK FANS – are still backing the backs of our boys. To all those fans who still believe (especially to the international fans), let’s continue to support them and let’s not lose our trust in them just like what the Korean Cassies and Chinese Cassies has done. Let’s keep an open mind and don’t let these kinds of issues get in the way of our love for DBSK. Always remember that DBSK and us, their fans, will always be ONE.
On a side note, it’s funny that instead of the fans getting angry and blaming JaeChunSu like what SM wanted from the start, this ridiculous move by SM backfired because the fans are actually blaming the company now. Chinese fans had the same reaction as the Korean Cassies when SM canceled the SMTOWN concert and blamed JaeChunSu for it. Poor SM. They’re trying hard to make JaeChunSu look bad in the eyes of the fans but too bad for them that’ll never happen.
