I don’t even know why the media still call it a “secret” when it is clearly not a secret anymore since the fans already know it. LOL. More information on the “used-to-be-secret-but-not-anymore” fanmeeting of JaeJoong, Yoochun and Junsu. =)

3 TVXQ Members: ‘Gathering 6000 Fans for a Surprise Fanmeeting’ on the 12th

Korea University, Hwajeong Gymnasium, Free Charity Fanmeeting

The 3 TVXQ members in legal dispute is having their solo activities in Korea by holding a surprise charity fanmeeting.

This is the first fanmeeting held by the 3 members who in last July submitted provisional disposition application against the exclusive contract effect to their label, SM Entertainment therefore the event is gathering a lot of attention. Junsu, Yoochun, and Jaejoong on the coming 12th at 5:00 p.m at Hwajeong Gymnasium in Korea University, Seoul will have this individual activity and about 6000 TVXQ fans are able to attend the fanmeeting.

At Yes24, the subject of the event is entitled as “Smile Again” under the name of three members and the fanmeeting also carries the nature as charity event. At the venue entrance, there will be a fundraising to collect voluntary donations from visitors to help the needy children. The three members in participation is planning to deliver the full amount gathered from this fanmeeting to the UNICEF.

It’s been confirmed that TVXQ songs as a group will not be used in this event. The representativeness of the three members in last November ‘2009 MAMA’ had raised a sensitive conflict and a rule about partial representative is being interpreted. The name of TVXQ can only be used when the 5 members are together, and if only three members being active in representing TVXQ, then the remaining two members are able to make complain.

Therefore, there’s a specific information being announced that during the event, TVXQ’s song won’t be sung, and the charity event title will not mention the name of TVXQ. The event is planned to have 1 hour talk show with the fans, and is going to be filled with Christmas Carol.

The official from the event said, “The date and location are already confirmed, but the time and information is still tentative. After the three members finish their schedule in Japan and arrive back to Korea, then we’ll start to coordinate the specific details.”

The advance ticket sales of ‘Smile Again’ will start via the official website Yes24 starting December 8th at 8 pm, the ticket is free, and one person can only buy one ticket.

It sucks that we won’t hear any DBSK songs during this fanmeeting because the three members aren’t allowed to sing DBSK songs even if THEY ARE DBSK members. But I guess it kinda makes sense in this case since they are holding the fanmeeting not as DBSK but as Kim JaeJoong, Park Yoochun and Kim Junsu and besides, it will sound weird if we only hear three members singing a song which is usually sang by five members. I just don’t agree too much on the way they JaeJoong, Yoochun and Junsu were “forbidden” to refer to DBSK or do any DBSK-related thing when Yunho and Changmin are not with them. I mean, the three of them ARE MEMBERS OF DBSK and THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO REPRESENT THE GROUP in any event. If the three of them are not allowed to “represent” DBSK when the other members are not there, then it MUST also mean that Yunho and Changmin are also NOT allowed to “represent” and sing DBSK songs or do DBSK-related activities if the three members are not there, right? If they (whoever made that ridiculous condition of them being together before being allowed to do DBSK activities) are playing fair, this condition should be applicable to both sides, am I right? Honestly, doesn’t this condition sound really stupid? They’re just restricting every move of the boys too much. *shakes head*

Anyway, if the JaeJoong, Yoochun and Junsu will not sing DBSK songs, I guess they will be covering songs from other artists. Or maybe since it was mentioned in the news that the event will be “filled with Christmas carol”, I’m guessing they will sing  a lot of Christmas songs. Honestly, it would be nice to hear them sing some Christmas carols again especially the popular ones. I’ll be looking forward to fancams and pictures from this event. :D
