So Joongie’s new album is out! Celebrating 10 years of his career! Some of them rush to buy it. Couple of days later we hear the news of boycott. Now, I was late on arriving at the scene so I didn’t know what was happening. And when I did arrive, boy! What I saw both amused and shocked me.
Us HJ fans can be really mean to each other can’t we? Throwing insults at each other. Badgering each other. Name calling. Turning against each other. Threatening. Blaming. Taunting those who diligently working to spread news about Hyun Joong. Now mind it, I said news about HJ. Not news about the supposed boycott. They are two different things. At the risk of getting a lot of hate for myself, I shall go ahead and write this message to all of you because I care for us being together when HJ returns.
See guys, it’s ok to air out your opinions. What is NOT OK is throwing insults at each other. That’s definitely not throwing good light on yourselves. We’re supposed to be mature & take these things rationally. Not go on a rant. You can air your opinions without blaming others too! I saw a lot of tweets saying those who don’t buy are responsible for his failure. Now, isn’t that a little too much? What will you tell those fans who want to buy the album but don’t have the money or means to purchase the DVDs? Will you be ready to pitch in & buy for them? No, right? Let it rest. It’s their choice. You want to buy the album? Go ahead and buy it. Don’t badger others, you’re being mean.
Those who want to boycott KE, please go ahead and do so. It’s true KeyEast has tried very hard to take advantage of Joongie. The SK fans are doing it to take their stand. They know more than anyone what kind of dynamics works well in their own country. So there must be some way it would work. But please, don’t force the others to stop buying, you’re being mean too. The others are on the mindset that by buying his album, they are still making sure his sale-ability remains intact. So please give them some space too! There are many who are buying the album just because they want to have something of HJ – not with the intention or fear of him losing out – but just for the sake of collecting his work. Please accept that this is fine too.
You all have already seen how many non-fans are now opening their eyes towards Hyun Joong’s situation. Some are amazed at the kind of trust & faith we have in each other. Some are saying we are literally like family! But hey! The fight is not over yet! There are still a lot of foolish people out there who think we are pathetic & even stupid. Many are waiting to see when we will fall. And I’m sorry to say this.. But by the way I see some people acting & abusing fellow fans, this might very well be on the way! Oh sure! Some say “This is what KE wants!” but you know what? Shouldn’t our connection with each other be strong enough to withstand these small difference of opinions? Are we that easy to be manipulated? If we stop loving each other & turn against each other at the first drop of the curtain, we are playing right into their hands! Remember that!
I’m shocked at how rude, ungrateful, presumptuous and downright vulgar some tweets have been towards SK fans! This is really not done! Imagine their state please! Hyun Joong is from their own country, the bitch is also from there. They have laws that could persecute them. Laws against defamation. It’s easy to sit from far and call them cheap names. But understand they are doing a lot for HJ too! Some of them are fighting legal battles with that horrible creature for voicing out their doubts! How many of you would do the same if your country’s laws were against you? Please be more understanding towards them. They have received your gifts and helped you all deliver them to HJ’s parents and relatives. They have sent you his fan regalia from SK. They have translated HJ’s news and shared with people so that it can be translated to other languages and sent. They are also the ones who are tirelessly translating your letters to Hyun Joong & sending it to him so that baby can read it happily, think of us as still being there for him!
Imagine if HJ were to see all this? This… This bickering and fighting that is going on? Would he be happy? I’ve said it before and I’m saying it again. Nothing would hurt Kim Hyun Joong more than seeing his own fans fighting with each other! So please, calm down & go on with your lives! Stand up for what you believe in but do it without being mean to each other. Be mature. Know this… While you are busy fighting with each other, there is this completely separate section of fans who are quietly and diligently voting for Hyun Joong in all the polls. Making him take the lead. They are sharing their memories of Hyun Joong, they are missing him and they are spreading the truth about him.
There is so much more of truth that will come out from all this that is being revealed. This is bigger than what all of us are even beginning to think. Focus on that! Why waste time hating each other? Channel it into the polls and questioning and deducing the truth. Do we really need all this bickering right now? I don’t think so.
Ending this with an apology to all my readers if I offended their sensibilities. I didn’t mean to hurt anyone. I’m just asking everybody to respect each others’ opinions. At the end of the day – we all love Hyun Joong in our own way (Some weirder than the other. LOL). I am requesting all of you to please, PLEASE help maintain peace with each other. We’re all equals here. Each of our opinion matters, but don’t use that to judge the other person’s love for Hyun Joong, that’s very wrong.
Once again, forgive me if I have spoken out of turn here. You can take my words or leave it. It’s your decision. But I sure hope we are all civil with each other. Let’s stay together & show people that even though we have different opinions, we are still together… For Kim Hyun Joong. Love you all! Please take care and try not to take the South Korean encouragement cheer “fighting!” too literally! 😛
