This REALLy wasn’t written by me. It was written by another Cassie. I found this on dbsknights where it was already translated.
What I’m feeling right now, I wouldn’t call it pain… it’s helplessness and it’s a pent up sense of frustration. None of it has much to do with me, back when the fandom first started to split, I had already made the decision to turn my back on it all.
TVXQ. This group, it was with me in the naive days of primary school, the wild days of junior high and the now maturing days of high school. Even though so many people now say ‘you can’t always believe what you see’, these 5 individuals have walked with me throughout the journey of life; I don’t know how to let go. Looking back on the tracks that we’ve left, I remember everything so clearly and I realize that so many have now left those memories in the past, choosing only to hold on to the experiences that give them joy.
Everything they’ve shown us has proved that they are made of flesh and blood, just like you and I. Each word uttered from their lips, each moment of eye contact, I don’t understand how anybody could ever doubt them. If any of that were fake, then the 5 of them would be award-winning actors now.
All things considered, I’m not really a fan of TVXQ, I’m a fan of the 5. What is TVXQ? It’s a name. It’s a glorious title that has now left us lost and helpless. It doesn’t matter who is using it and who isn’t, regardless of the views you may hold or the prejudices you may have, they were and still are your idols; why should we constantly argue over this name? I don’t deny wanting to see the 5 of them together on stage, but I have to admit that I’ve always wanted them to leave the black hole that they were getting lost in, to leave the entertainment industry and live their lives as ordinary people, happy and carefree. Isn’t it a good thing now that JYJ have left? I’ve always known that it would be difficult and I’d always known that their careers would be interfered with. There was never a moment in time when I’d I thought it would be easy.
As for Homin, they have the right and the freedom to make whatever decision they wish. No one is betraying anyone – which one of you can look the 5 of them in the eye and say that you know the truth behind it all? If you really were an OT5 fan and you know where you stand, then hold on to that choice and live with it. Don’t feel like you should let go or pick a side because of rumors, controversy and arguments. They give their very best for us and we shouldn’t neglect their efforts.
Those of us who are waiting for them to return as 5 – there is nothing wrong with being hopeful and keeping faith. Whether they’re releasing an album as 5, as 3 or as 2; whether they’re holding concerts as 5, as 3 or as 2; they are still the same 5 people, and we should stay the same, just as we always have.
