Thanks for your attention,
I’ve known JYJ because of Park Yoochun through his drama SKKS… why did a workaholic with absolutely zero knowledge on Kpop/ Kdrama suddenly started watching SKKS of all things?!?!? well to make it short — 2yrs ago i got sick who has to undergo all those treatments, didn’t have a choice but to stay home most of the time, was so depressed, only wanted to hear and see “happy things”…thank God my “chemo days” turned to “Chunnie days”…i’ll be FOREVER grateful to Chunnie & JYJ! they kept me happy and made me want to live a life worth loving…me getting sick? i know it was a blessing in disguise… So, how did I become a JYJ fan? i really do think it was FATE and GOD’S WILL…
Does anyone here have a sister who can talk about JYJ all day and listens to their songs non-stop? to a point where everything about JYJ, their songs & dramas, just grew on you? Well, I have such a sister!
Thanks to her I became a JYJ fan. She likes Yoochun so told us (me and my other sister) to pick between Xia or Jaejoong as our bias. I think it’s obvious who i picked. I really loved Xia in the music video In Heaven, also loved him in Tarantallegra and Uncommitted. I only saw him in a few videos but I can really say that he’s a great and true performer! Since we’re so busy, we just leave it to our “Yoochun bias” sister to update us with the latest news on JYJ. When it comes to pure talent, I really admire JYJ!
On a serious note, I think I started to be a JYJ fan when I saw my “Yoochun bias” sister smiling and laughing again. I think my whole family owe JYJ a lot. It’s not that my sister doesn’t know how to smile or laugh ok? It’s just that she was at her lowest point in life that time, that it really breaks our hearts. Thanks a lot JYJ! Now we know where she gets all her happiness and strength from.
I really admire JYJ’s strength and courage. I’ve heard so much about the injustices brought unto them by their previous agency. If my sister has her battle with cancer, it seems that JYJ has its own battle as well. If everything my sister have said was true, then I think SME is like cancer (or even worst if I may say). They both can drain a person physically, emotionally, mentally and financially. Just like cancer that can spread all throughout the body, SME has spread its “influence” all across Korea and other countries as well. But JYJ is fearless and is really a great source of hope and inspiration for all those people in need. Again, thanks a lot JYJ! I know for sure we will be JYJ fans for life!
Btw, I’m the sister of Micky07 (hope she forgives me for this) lolz
OK! here it goes,first i want to thank the JYJ3 team for giving us the chance to talk our obsession with JYJ out, i will introduce myself:
i am a 27years old fan, i live in a country that is very far away from south Korea ( Algeria in north Africa), i do not think that there’s other fans from my country in here,i am a doctor ( a resident actually still under training to become a full radiologist)! and i am a fan of JYJ ( i think they should make it an information required in our identity papers ^^).
So; the beginning was with my obsession over Korean dramas! i watched so many of them! and i though they are better than American,Turkish and Indian dramas; so in September 2011, i stumbled over this drama called “PROTECT THE BOSS”; i began watching it and got hooked within the first episodes,i liked all the characters ,and when i watch a drama i like to do a full search information on the actors, so all i was getting in every website was JAEJOONG THIS ,JAEJOONG THAT; i though he was the one playing the main character, but then i learned that he the one playing his cousin, i did not understand how a drama can be full with all this amazing actors and the one most famous and the attraction of the drama was this JAEJOONG!!!!
trough out the series there was a song playing in the back-round ,i downloaded it ,made my in caller theme song,learned it by heart, and dreamed of it; it was so amazing i went to search for the singer,i found that THIS JAEJOONG actually sang it and composed and wrote it(it is i will protect you from PTB ost), i was so impressed, i did another research about jaejoong, i found out about DBSK, and there was a bunch of videos from his early days us a member, i watched a lot of his videos in shows(x man,jihwaza,come to play,happy together……ect), i instantly got attracted to his personality,he is so amazingly natural and down to earth and such a blabber mouth that i fell for him,i couldn’t watch anything without jaejoong in it! (strangely i realized that I’ve seen his name before countless of times ,when i went searching in polls to see who is the best in every domain in Korean entertainment, he is always first!!!!!!!!! yay)
so after obsessing with jaejoong’s personality(i swear i love it more than his looks! which is a quit welcomed addition )i began listening to there band music,as in DBSK,i still didn’t know about the split and JYJ, so i found out they had great songs(never been a k pop fan,only like the dramas) and then i discovered yuchun( whom i had already seen in SS drama…………i was sooooooooooo impressed and happy,they are actually friends! yay) and junsu( i was shocked because the 2nd song on my list that i loooooooooooooooove is TOO LOVE from SS ost by junsu),i passed a magical end of year 2012, with all those discoveries, i ve never obsessed about a celebrity before, jaejoong became my desktop picture my id photo everywhere(as you can see in my profile) i admire him beyond the limits…..
after a while when i had seen all there is to see about DBSK; i discovered about the lawsuit, and JYJ! i read all there is to read and seen all evidences; and then i admired those boys even more, THEY ARE FEARLESS!!!!!they went against this big company and they’re more famous than before( i mean come on ;i am a pretty good example of a fan who knows them after the split) i admired there talent in singing,acting,producing!!! and they sill are amazing us yet! i go everyday on JYJ3 to see the latest updates! i pray everyday to see them again on TV! i cried when yuchun’s dad died,and when they treated junsu unfairly !and recently my heart ached when jaejoong’s twitter got deleted!
i feel for them so much,when they win something,when they appear laughing on videos,, i feel so happy, when they are sad i feel sad;
i love them unconditionally, i even can’t explain!
my dream is to someday meet them! tell them how amazing they are, and how much i sincerely love them to pieces!!!!!!!
this was just a little bit of what i wanted to say! if given time i want to write more and more! bet yeah! I’ll maybe end up typing all night long;and still can’t do my boys justice!!
what can i say more! oh yeah……. I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE JYJ and love every JYJ lover,
I apologize for any mistakes(English is my third language)…………………..yours dearly LESLIE
Well, this is my story. To tell you the truth, I hate Kpop so much at first.
This happened around one year and half month ago. I faced a difficult, stressful, and painful situation that ever happened in my life. I was in college and had the best of friend and roommate. Our friendship had built for about three years at that time. We love sharing problems, laugh and crying together. One day, she was admitted to the hospital for a week because of tuberculosis disease. So, every single day I went to the hospital to visit her even though I was busy with classes and assignments. For me, support is the best thing I can give to her.
With all the classes, assignments, and visiting that I do, I had a problem with my boyfriend at the same time. Well, of course this problem gives me more stress and I really can’t handle that. I don’t have anyone to talk to about my boyfriend problem because the one who always hear about him is my friend who was on bed in hospital. I couldn’t talk about this to her. She is fighting with her disease and it’s better if I left out this problem from her. At that time, I’m barely talking to anyone and just want to be alone.
One day, my friend told me that her disease will be cured but she needed extended treatment for several months. Because of her family lives far away from the hospital and our college, she was told to extend her studies and move to another college which is more close to her house. Well, that means we have to be separated. I don’t know how to describe my feeling at that time. Of course I don’t want her to leave me but I can’t be selfish because of my feeling. And the hardest part is, my boyfriend asks for break up on the same day. I lost my word. I don’t know what to do. I lost two person that I love so much on the same time. Can you imagine?
I cried every night because of the pain, for about 3 months. This sounds so crazy but that’s the truth. I was under depression and it’s affect my menstrual cycle, and lost weight too. Everytime when I heard Malay and English love song, I cried. I cried because I know the meaning. I can feel it. One day, I feel it was going to be worst and I need to stop. I ask another friend who is a Kpop fan to give me Korean songs. So, she gave me In Heaven, Nine, Fallen Leaves, Don’t Cry My Lover and W. I heard these songs every night and it makes me stop crying. When I heard that song, I can feel the sadness but the songs just give me strength not to cry and makes forget about all the problem. I need a fresh start and JYJ songs just encourage me to do so. This is how I know JYJ and become a fan of them. JYJ is really helping me going through my hardest time. I am really thankful for that. From that moment, I want to know more and more about the boys and just at that time, I got to know that JYJ is from TVXQ. To be exact, I got to know JYJ first before I know TVXQ.
Because of them also, I start learn how to play music, as my fresh start of life. When I got to know that three of them can play a piano, I am really shock of their talent. They really give me inspiration to do well in music. They made who I am now. Today, I can play guitar and I still learning on how to playing piano. The first song that I learned for guitar is Insa. I use their songs everyday in my practise .
That was my story. It’s going to be longer but it’s better if I stop here. I never thought these boys and their songs could help me in many ways. For that, I am really grateful for got to know JYJ. I never meet him face to face, but hopefully that day will come. I love three of them. Jaejoong, Yoochun, and Junsu, please keep bring us happiness in our life.
Love, from Malaysia.
I have never before in my life liked a celebrity, nor any person at all, the way I like JYJ. I used to see fans screaming and crying when they see their idol, and I would think “how immature and dumb”. Early 2009, I wasn’t into kpop at all, nor kdrama or jdrama.. I only watched anime. My elder sister started to get into Kpop little by little. She had a whole play-list of Asian songs and MVs, when she showed them to me.. I remember saying things like: ewwww, they are ugly. Thinking back, I must have been blind O_o! I wasn’t used to Asian men, I liked the standard big Western men. My sis wasn’t even specifically a fan of TVXQ either.
HOWEVER, we shared the same PC, so when I worked on my school projects I would listen to her play-list, and whenever I heard Mirotic, Bolero, why did I fall in love with you, love in the ice, wrong number… I would replay them without realizing it. As soon as the song ended I would replay it again and again. I didn’t even realize the same group sang all those songs because they had different names in Korean and Japanese: DBSK, TVXQ, Dong bang Shinki, Tohoshinki.. I also couldn’t differentiate between Korean faces. I would listen to them and get mesmerized. I was thinking: wow their harmony is sooo good. Then I recognized Jaejoong’s unique face and realized that the same group sang all the songs I liked. I was surprised!
I got really curious, I wanted to know what they were like in reality. I couldn’t imagine them talking and moving in real life. They seemed like anime figures to me! The first variety show I watched was “The king’s man”.. I instantly fell in love, I could see how humble, modest, fun, cute, and talented they were.
I have to admit, at first Jaejoong was the member I disliked the most, because of his looks, I still wasn’t used to Asian men being beautiful. However, the more I got to know them, the more I liked JJ because of his personality and he is now my bias. Junsu is my second bias. XD
Everyday, I would watch performances and variety shows. When I heard about the split, I didn’t really care much. I thought it was some internal problems and I didn’t understand the whole SM stuff. It only started to sink in the more I got to know them. I would wake up every morning just to read news about them. I only visited allkpop as that was the only site I knew. I would be disappointed when I didn’t find news about them. I couldn’t get enough of them and went off to another site that still supported the 5.
Then the split really started to hurt. X_X It took me nearly two years to finally accept it. When Homin made their comeback and said some things, I knew it was over, and that hurt me most.
But, what REALLY got me into JYJ and JYJ only, was the saseng incident! The day the news came out was a nightmare. At first I was confused and heartbroken, I didn’t understand what sasengs really were. But the feeling to protect JYJ became so strong. I would read people’s comments and see the hate they were getting, people saying things like: JYJ are over forever! It was then that I realized how much JYJ really meant to me. Every bad word from the haters, every bad article, and all the cruel things that were happening at the time would stab me a million times. I couldn’t eat, couldn’t sleep, couldn’t study. I was depressed, and I would say; what is wrong with me? Do I like them this much? Do I care for them to this extend?
Then I came to JYJ3 as I couldn’t stand a day without hearing news from them. I was constantly worried that something bad would happen again, that they would be hurt even more!! T^T
Sigh*** I’m just glad that is over, and they are well and healthy now.
Back to the topic, now, JYJ are everything to me. They make me smile when I’m feeling sad, they pull me up when I’m feeling low, and they make me squeal and giggle when I should be quite in the library XD
My love for JYJ is a secret from my family, only my sister knows but she doesn’t support me, and tells me to stop and that she regrets showing me Kpop I am forever forbidden to go to their concerts, buy their albums, or even comment here. I cannot share this with anyone. My father will never understand, and if he finds out, he will forbid me from using the internet forever! However, I will NEVER stop! I will forever love them! And if the least I can do to support them is vote on polls or protect them against haters, I will do it! And I dream that someday I would be able to go to their concert, or even see them from afar in the airport/streets. Their happiness is what makes me happy. Whatever path they take, whatever choice they make, even if it makes me sad, as long as JYJ are happy, then I am happy.
PS. Sorry for this super long story, my bad English and grammar mistakes
