So by now, the readers should know why the 3 ex-members of TVXQ filed the lawsuit against SM to void their contracts, and where all those false information and the rumors blaming Yunho and Changmin for the breakup originated from, the 6.25 meeting. If you are a new reader of my blog, I strongly suggest you to read my previous posts, starting from here: http://truetvxq.blogspot.com/p/roadmap-to-truth.html
However, the 6.25 meeting alone does not quite explain how those rumors spread so widely among fans, and how all those one-sided information seeped deeply into the fandom. By the time CJS got the injunction judgment, temporarily freeing them from SM, the fans' opinion and even the general public's opinion was overwhelmingly in support of CJS. The support was extremely one-sided in such whn Yunho, Changmin, and their parents released signed statements expressing their stance, they were buried and ignored, and instead of their statements being heard by the fans, Yunho and Changmin were bashed viciously for not supporting the 3.
So what happened to the fans? How could they so blindly believe the lies without even verifying if they were legit?
We all know that CJS's individual fan site admins must've had a hand in that after participating in the 6.25 meeting, but it's hard to imagine that they could convince rest of the fans, especially the "All Fans" 올팬 (Korean term for the fans that support all 5, same as OT5. These days, Korean TVXQ fans define "All Fans" as the fans that support all the members of TVXQ: Yunho and Changmin, but the term is still used both ways depending who you talk to.)
It's understandable that fans biased towards CJS to believe those lies, but what about OT5's and Yunho, Changmin's fans?
That's where the role of major fan sites come in, especially the fan site that used to be the biggest and the most well known fan site of TVXQ, DNBN.
As most of the readers know already, DNBN was waving the OT5 flag on the surface until they officially announced their support of the 3, but they never actually supported Yunho and Changmin. So what happened to it? How can a prominent fan site that was active in supporting all 5 turned into a JYJ fan site so suddenly?
In this chapter about fan sites, I will talk about DNBN, and also talk about few other sites including the sites that support Yunho and Changmin.
The next post is coming soon!!! (I promise)
