i decided to wrote this post, minutes after i read some of blogs about the difference between these three fans category. apparently, somehow, these people created another fan category, which is TVXQ fans.
now, i think, me, who is an OT5 (Cassiopeia) need to at least clear some things.
i don’t know where the word OT5 came from, before, we only called ourselves Cassiopeia. but as time passed, JYJ and HoMin stans too, appeared and made their own forum site for only the one who supports JYJ and HoMin. and then the OT5 word appeared by then as well.
in my opinion, and also the opinion of some of my OT5 friends, there is none such as TVXQ fans and OT5 fans division. we are one. TVXQ fans = OT5 = Cassiopeia.
personally, i’d like to call myself Cassiopeia more than OT5, a lot of OT5s want to be called Cassiopeia rather than OT5 too. but a lot of other stans apparently don’t understand this, so i guess, to make it clear that we support five members, the OT5 word is needed to justify it.
P.S. not a mere explanatory. not only for YunJae shippers, but others and stans as well
"first of all, i’m gonna introduce myself. i am a Cassiopeia (meaning : OT5) and a YunJae shipper. the reason i’m writing this thing is because i want a lot of people to know the real reason why we believe in YunJae that much. i am writing this based on my own point of view and reality as well. some YunJae shippers might not agree with what i wrote, but do keep in mind that I’m one of you guys too, and letting out what i want to say is all about human rights. and to other OTP shippers, this might offend you in some way. feel free to comment and criticize as long as it’s reasonable and have your own explanatory of your disagreement. comments as "Go die!" or "All of you girls are just bunch of hallucinated shippers.", then i will ignore you for sure, because i don’t want to have debate with retards and immature people."
what is OTP? i bet everyone know this already. and since when it began? i don’t know that too..i tried to find it, but neither gave explanation on how KPop start having OTP. but if i’m not mistaken, it was getting more popular during the Shinhwa era.
so what makes these fans loving the affectionate acts done by their idol, especially male x male? i’m not too sure about this, but from some sources i read, they loving it because it is a cute sight to see. two guys teasing each other and doing skinship, especially if these two are handsome and charming men, this makes their fans go crazy.
and of course, because of that, each agencies decide for their own OTP in each groups. all they have to do is do fanservice every now and then to satisfy their fans. you guys know how fans have such huge impact in their idols’ career, right? especially in Korea. if a certain idol somehow make a mistake and piss their fans off, the idol would sure go bye bye to his career. fans decide idol’s popularity. fans are not only fans there, they do a lot of stuffs to support their idol. fans have two figures, the agency and the manager of their idol. whether it’s promoting their idol by displaying their idol current activity on a bus or treat the whole staffs that work with their idols to some good food and snack.
okaay, sorry for the intermezzo. back to the topic, and so, in order to give fans something cute and interesting to see. these OTP do a lot of fanservices. but sometimes, the OTP the agencies chose doesn’t work that well. instead, mostly, fans do the choosing of the OTP they think match the most and so the agency follow along. you know, right??
Fan: I read the fanfic Thorn Year (Korean Yunjae fanfic), have Jaejoong and Yunho read it? I am crying already, its too tragic
Jaejoong: Doesn’t that contain mature content? How old are you, you read it already?
This story 가시연 (Gashiyeon), is famously known internationally as Thorn Year. However 가시연 actually loosely translates to Thorn Lily. Gashiyeon actually means ‘Lily with a thorn’ or ‘You’re the one who should love my thorn’. The title is believed to be chosen based on the premise that despite the problems Jaejoong causes, Yunho is the only one who puts up with and forgives him. Jaejoong is seen as the Lily with thorns. Beautiful but dangerous.
This story consist of three parts:
- 천애둔략 (Reduced Horizon) - Prequel
- 가시연 (Thorn Lily) - Main Story
- 여우의 요람 (Fox’s Cradle) - Sequel
