Letter from H.O.T fans toCassiopeia I (Original)

~ I’ m a current member of club H.O.T, and am a fan of the now broken
up group, H.O.T. ^^ These days the group DBSK have
been performing a lot
and have caught my attention.
Not only that, I heard that one
of the DBSK members was a very big male fan of H.O.T., and that’ s how I first started to learn more about DBSK As I watch the way
they act and
their performance,
I couldn’ t help but to think that they are very similar to H.O.T when they first started H.O.T is seriously the
god’ s to our generation, so for people that were born
around 82, 83, etc.
No one probably understand
what they meant to us… After Seotaiji and boys broke up,
H.O.T. saved the
kpop music scene that was
completely dying out. All the teenagers were pulled
into H.O.T.,
and within a year of their debut they received the top music
award.
Out of all the major awards that H.O.T received, there
must be
awards
from at least 10 different music/ television companies When I see DBSK right now, the
past H.O.T. fills my mind.
I was a freshman in high school
when H.O.T. first debuted.
Now I am 22, and even today,
when I go to performances or concerts, I am looked as a young
girl ^^ I heard that the majority of
DBSK fans are junior high
students,
and although many people say
that they are young fans, we were exactly like that too. Whenever people saw us
they
called us H.O.T fanatics.
But then what about now? Even
after 8-9 years
we are still here watching over them. We hope that all the DBSK fans
follow in our footsteps ^^ Liking H.O.T. for about 9 years,
I would like to give a little heads
up and warnings about the
company SM I am someone that had a voice
within the H.O.T fan club. So I know a little more about the
company SM, than most fans or
normal people At this moment, many H.O.T. fans
have ventured out ^^
There are some that have
become stars, others that became famous peoples’ coordis, and even some that have been
hired into SM Through these people we have
learned that,
what we believed to be unfair
treatment by SM, in reality, was
very much true SM claimed that the 2nd H.O.T. was blackbeat, but after their
failure
they tried once again, and that
group is DBSK Silently leading the group with
wit and talent, YoungWoong
JaeJoong. He is like MoonHeeJun.
Leader in dance, with the aura
of a tough guy, but sometimes very cute, UKnowYunHo.
He is like JangWooHyuk.
Lived in the states, and able to
speak English, very charismatic and outgoing, MickyYooChun.
He is like Tony. With looks that can be looked as
almost famine, and the image
where you want to take care of
him, ChoiKangChangMin.
He is like Kangta. Looks that can be looked as average, but the type of
person
that the more you see the more
you like, XiahJunSu.
He is like LeeJaeWon. Two group that really have a lot
in common, DBSK and H.O.T. Maybe that’ s why, but we H.O.T. fans are genuinely scared that
the DBSK fans will have to face
the hurt and disappointing
ordeals we had to go through.
Especially because all of you are
so young. Cassiopeia fans… SM is honestly a dangerous place.
As you like DBSK more I am sure
that your hatred for SM will only
grow The first time H.O.T. began to get
battered by LeeSooMan was
during the beginning of their 3rd album
I’ m not sure if you heard their 2nd album song, “Heng Bok” That is the song H.O.T. received the DaeSang award,
and the album after that for
every little mistake, they were
hurt. At that time, I believed that no
matter what, it was merely just
rumors Slowly, everything I believed
were rumors, were slowly
turning into realities By any chance do you know of
Andy of ShinHwa ’ s incident? For awhile he was on stage
wearing a mask wasn ’ t he? SM said some unbelievable stuff
saying that he ran into
something
or that JunJin fell while taking a
shower. Everyone continuously told us
different things. The important factor is that
they ran into something or fell,
but why was only his mouth
hurt? How come there were no signs of anything near
their
forehead or nose or any other facial part? A few days before, Andy went
into the SM building, and when
he came out
he was wearing a mask, which
many fans noticed.
Honestly, at that time I didn’ t believe it. After JTL left SM, even after
they released their album,
they weren’ t able to properly perform for a good 2 years. Their schedules continuously got
mysteriously cancelled,
and on cable t.v. their music
video was not even showed
ONCE. That wasn’ t the famous SM-JTL boycott. Boycott… SM went to every television company and threatened that
in the case they brought JTL
onto their broadcasting list, SM
would pull out all their singers
from that company Many fans called JTL’ s company “YeJun Media” and asked what was happening, but even from there they did
not know. This is a famous event,
It was when MoonHeeJun’ s 2nd album was supposed to come out Fans were sleeping in front of
HeeJun’ s house, when HeeJun’ s mother came out and began to cry like no
tomorrow.
She was begging to the fans to
save HeeJun… “Please save my HeeJun…” HeeJun’ s first album sold 600,000 copies.
But SM said, “Merely 600,000?!” They said they didn’ t want to invest in his 2nd album. So for HeeJun’ s 2nd album, his music video, and jacket
pictures… he poured out his own money and savings. Everyone.
Buy their album. That is
helping DBSk.
Whenever H.O.T albums came
out, we fans bought AT
LEAST 2 copies. That’ s the only reason whenever a new album
came out they were able to
surpass 1 million album
sales. And for that fact only … that’ s the only reason the members were able to collect a
little bit of money. H.O.T. boys… for every album they received
approximately 2 cents. After Boa released her first
album,
she received 50 cents per album. For five people if it’ s 2 cent, that means its not even a
quarter cent per person. Then you might ask… “What about the commercials and photo albums, and all the
other side things H.O.T did?” To keep it simple, the only money H.O.T members
make is through album sales. Any commercials, and
any shows,
anything,
all that money goes to SM.
So its basically an unjust contract, a slave contract. We heard that the contract
between DBSK and SM is
immense,
but that’ s not always a good thing. When one leaves SM you must
pay a fee that is much higher
than the contract,
and basically its to stop singers
from leaving
Not only that they will take out a percentage of one ’ s profits if one leaves. Do you think the term “slave contract” came out of nowhere?? DBSK right now…they are probably having a really hard time. Do you all know this?
The president of SM isn’ t LeeSooMan but, KimKyungWook.
To put it in lament terms… Although on paper KimKyungWook is the president,
the person that makes all the
decisions is LeeSooMan. The reason,
SM has done a lot of illegal
things.
And if those acts are caught, someone needs to be blamed. So LeeSooMan screws up,
and KimKyungWook takes the
blame.
If you look at it KimKyungWoo is
a slave too. An SM slave. H.O.T. ’ s old manager is currently working for a very famous
company.
That person once said that H.O.T.
are kids he truly feels sorry for,
and so they were kids that he
wanted to save. That person tried to take H.O.T. out of SM, but got caught by
LeeSooMan
and was immediately fired. Right
now he is working at SIDUS and
is producing the group G.O.D. That is the reason
LeeSooMan hates G.O.D. so much.
So much to the point that any
radio show SM singers host,
he makes it clear he doesn’ t want to hear them putting on
G.O.D. songs. Even though slave contract,
unjust contracts are against the
law,
LeeSooMan is living quite fine.
He is truly a rich man. Someone with so much money it is unbelievable.
Although he waste a lot of
money, he always has more.
We raised SM and then we were
stepped on by SM and died. All the money that came in
from H.O.T was invested into BoA
and all the money they invested
in BoA is being currently
relearned. But now H.O.T members have
encountered so many scars,
and they are slowly being forgotten by people. Along with Club H.O.T who set
records as a fan club.
We all are being forgotten by
people. All of you will get older with
DBSK.
We were the same. We used to say that “we’ re aging together,” and these days those words sound so sad As time goes feelings will be
stronger,
and we sincerely hope that DBSK
doesn’ t endure the same scars from SM, as H.O.T. had. Don’ t take the same hurt as we did. Within DBSK, create an awesome
fan culture.
With every childless statement,
the fan image is slowly ruined. Become fans that think
about
what you say, when announcing you are their
fans. Don’ t ever be flattered by any rumors, and always
trust the member.
Singers will never betray
their fans. Please don’ t do things that they don’ t like. You shouldn’ t ever make your favorite singer feel
disappointed in you. If you are going to believe
this and that, or just move
on to someone else,
then don’ t like them from the start. It will only be scars upon
that singer/group. As you grow older, even if you
find a boyfriend
don’ t ever forget that you are DBSK fans. At first it may just be a
fantasy for you
but as time passes and as
you grow older
you will realize that they
mean a lot more to you than you know In your heart, you will never
forget your younger days
when you were their fans … Please make sure it is only memories that you will not
regret…”
NOTE: I remember reading this from the old
