    Hi everyone~

    So there hasn't been much posting around so I thought i'd break the ice by creating a space where you can come and introduce yourself, share you're story and get to know other users. (you don't have to divulge anything you don't want to, just whatever you're comfortable with ^^)

    So, my name's Somer, I'm 21 and from Queensland, Australia. (aka, the completely wrong hemisphere :cry:)

    My getting into Tvxq is a bit of a strange story because I was listening to their music long before i got into them as a group. Back in '08 my friend borrowed my ipod and uploaded a whole heaps of songs which included TVXQ's and I fell in love. Needless to say, I went back for more songs and Changmin's voice had me a bias pretty quick :love:. Strangely though, I was never really interested in anything beyond their music, I barely knew their names, purely recognized their voices. Perhaps it was just the kind of pop culture in my country - but beyond mv's and music, fangirling wasn't really a thing for me (I have since corrected my mistakes:notworthy:). So, skip forward to 2010 and the split happened n' save for a bit of disappointment I wasn't too bummed over it, I liked their music sure, but I wasn't emotionally invested in them as a group. By 2011 I was more familiar with fandoms and was enjoying myself being a Shawol. At the end of the year, my friends and I made a trip of going down to Sydney for a K-pop Festival where Shinee, Tvxq and others were performing. It sounds stupid but honestly, I feel like I went into that concert a Shawol and left a Cassie. It's hard to describe but the way these two perform, their aura, their passion & their dynamic as a duo; it was the first time I had watched a performance and thought, 'I want to know who these guys are' - to think it was just 3 songs, I can't imagine the high of seeing their solo concert :eek:- ... so....google was my friend for the next week.... and i guess it all snowballed from there. :oops:

    So here we are in 2015 and in all his annoying perfection, Changmin is still my bias -

    - but honestly, how can you not love both these gorgeous, talented, hard-working men. <3

    So, I didn't mean for it to turn out that long and if you read all that, kudos. Don't feel pressured or anything, just as short or long as you like. Don't be shy, come share the love :X3:

    hellllloooo....my name is Nindy and Yunho is my babe...:D.

    I knew tvxq aka dbsk since long time ago maybe since their debut....but kpop definitely was a big no no for me at that time. I had no interested with tvxq until one day in 2011 read an article full of curse, bad and cruel words and it mocked my babe...it made me curious who is Jung Yunho and why he got those hate...and my journey to find him started and lead me to him eventually....the rest is history...short to say, I'm here for him and everything relate to him...and yes, I'm Jung Yunho fans and support him fully....:LOL:

    Hi! Im Jaz. I'm from the Philippines. I just got into kpop early 2013 when my sister introduced me to SNSD. Well, it was my 1st time seeing a group of people dancing in sync so I was amazed, lol. Seohyun is my bias. (ChangSeo is ♡) I first saw CM on their 2nd Japan tour VCR (Alps and Flanders) The crowd was so loud when he came out of the mascot so I was wondering maybe he was popular? :DThat time I remember being focused on CM pissed off face and I was like *awww, such a cutie pie* Then out of boredom I decided to watched SM Town Paris video on YT . I was sooooo mesmerized when the boys came out hanging in those wires then I finally see them perform I was like WOW, then CM screams *I'm dead* totally forgot to watched GG's performance, I was busy watching more of the boys videos :LOL:
    So thats how I became a TVXQ fan.

    I adore Changmin a lot :love: though I wish he should stop being ninja sometimes...

    Hi everyone,

    I am Amy from CA, USA. :) I got into TVXQ back in October, 2006. I was super into Chinese music at the time (Jay Chou, etc), so when my friends told me about Korean music, I was super skeptical. My friend insisted that there was a group of 5 guys who were super talented (and another group of 13 guys and all this other stuff). I wasn't too interested.

    One day, I went over to her house, and she had a Rising Sun poster on her wall. She said, "Oh, btw, there's the group I was talking about!" I was immediately attracted to the guy on the right with the grey spiked hair. "Oh....he's cute!" I said. Okay fine, I guess I'll look up their music. So I went home, but I couldn't remember their name, since there were so many different ones. I typed in DFSQ, TVSQ, DFSK, and all sorts of combinations before I finally just asked my friend. "DBSK!" she told me.

    The first music video I landed on was "Tri-Angle." "What the eff?! Why the heck is their hair so weird? Ummm....nah, I don't like this song." The next song I landed on was "Hug." I can honestly say that this song probably saved my membership in this fandom, because after that first video, I was totally weirded out. LOL....but I loved Hug, and I really liked that football player xD Then I started watching their banjun dramas, and man, I think that's what did it for me. They were so funny, I just had to stick around and listen to their music (and watch more of their videos). And there awakens my hard core Cassie life.

    Fast forward to today, and I am still an avid supporter of Yunho. I have to admit that Changmin was kind of...in the shadows when the group was 5, so I am so happy that he can now let everyone see how brightly he shines. Although the split was devastating at the time, I truly believe that it was the best thing that could have happened for Yunho and Changmin. Yunho, who was always considered the worst singer of the group, has now proven (not that he had to) that there was a reason why he was put into the group in the first place. He has overcome so much adversity but has managed to gain the respect of everyone in the industry and beyond. There should be absolutely no doubt in anyone's mind that he can sing and sing very well. Changmin, who was always considered the "least popular member" of the group now has a gigantic legion of fans who love and support him. He shines on stage with his singing, his wit, and his personality...all of which were stifled when the other 3 were still in the group. Now, everyone knows him as Voldemin xD (not really, but people know of his snarky comments and love them).

    My love for these 2 knows no bounds, and while I can't fly to Asia or buy all of their merchandise to support them, I will always be their fan and support them with whatever decision they make in their lives.

    And Yunho, please settle down and have kids already...your genes are way too good not to pass on. LOL *I volunteer* HAHAHAHA

    hi everyone im kle or klea or karla or yunho's wifey!:p
    im 25 years old

    before i was introduced to tvxq im an avid vanness wu fan. when kdramas are starting to become popular in my country my faves are ha ji won and jo insung.

    a friend of mine who is a changmin biased forced me to watch tvxq videos when i was still 15. i was really skeptical coz im head over heels inlove with vanness at that time. if i remember it correctly my little princess was the first music video that i watched but it was Rising Sun that picked my interest.

    so.. even tho i lived at that time in a very rural place with very little knowledge on how to use the internet, i searched more info about them. i stared at this rising sun pic of tvxq and all my attention is caught by this spiky haired cutie on the sidelines..

    for years i was a casual fan of tvxq and adored yunho. even if i am not very updated by their activities i always watch their performances and yunho's variety shows guesting.

    when hallyu wave hit my country, suju, snsd, bigbang became big but tvxq focused in japan. tbh they became distant to their other fans outside japan but im still so proud of them.

    when the lawsuit happened, i stopped following them for a while... i didnt even know Yunho and Changmin came back as a duo!

    one day i stumbled upon CatchMe MV on TV and when i heard Yunho's "Catch me gurrrrl!!!!!" intro... i just have to catch him and never let go!!!

    they slayed me and from there its nonstop youtube viewing, lawsuit reading etc etc... i joined a forum for the first time. it was in Hallyu8 where i met the beautiful founders of this forum :love:

    i feel like i was rediscovering TVXQ for the first time!

    and my love for yunho grows everyday as i get to know him more:love:

    Aww its so nice to know how all of you get to know tvxq:love:. From me it will a longgggg one :ROFLMAO: okay here we go :

    First Im not into Kpop even now i only know a few of Kpop member but only TVXQ kpop group that i follow until now.

    My first encounter with TVXQ is from my little sister, she said "sis this korean mv is cool and the song is good" and then i try to watch the TVXQ "something" mv, my respond is "oo the song is fun and nice, the mv is cool and the boys ok handsome :ROFLMAO:" but im still not into TVXQ.

    My second encounter actually from my little sister again. It happen when my sister watch "react to" in YT which show "catch me" mv. The beat, electronic, voice, dance etc. Woww this song is so coolllllll but in the end of the YT they show picture with 5 member called TVXQ and i got confused..."huh i think only two person that sing catch me where the others"...o_O

    After that i go to wiki and search for TVXQ, it only show 2 persons...o_Oo_Oo_O huh is YT wrong or...but after i read the history i understand what happen...but what makes me laugh is "how come YT give wrong information is it alright like that..". From what i read i dont know which one is the correct story since there is a lot of version..:sick:

    Tbc - sry gonna continue later...business call..

    Hi! Nice to meet you all, welcome to the forum!

    Hi Jesslyn! Thanks for taking the plunge, my thread can now be called a success! :giggle:

    Hi! That's cool, catch me is so flawless:love:! It seems quite a few people became interested through fine bro reactions vids which is great :X3:
    Regarding the split - it's a sore point for a lot of fans and everyone has their take on what happened. If you are interested in reading and understanding what happened, my advice would be to look for sites that present unbiased information with factual sources (there are a couple of sites floating around), rather than biased fan opinions, from there you can form your own stance on the matter. If you'd rather avoid the fandom politics of it all, just enjoy what you makes you happy ;) looking forward to part II of your post!


    Hi Shedar! Turkey? wow, that's so cool. Believe it or not, your not the only mother here :LOL: it's great that fans range from all ages!

    /stares at your sig forever/ :cry::cry::cry:

    That's good :X3: it can be hard to post in a new community, so i'm glad this thread served it's purpose :giggle:

    Most of us tend to congregate in the main thread, you should totally join in whenever you feel comfortable.

    Your english is absolutely fine, i'm so jealous of people who speak a 2nd language :cry:

    don't worry - it's like an initiation into the fandom, everyone goes through that stage of confusion. :X3:

    I agree, they are absolutely perfect as a duo :love:
