Ever so often I do post on soompi forums. Some of those posts could actually fit in my blog area. So I'll just report them here. Here's my 2nd one from Jan 6 2011:

I can't help but to think that this is exactly what SM wants: people at each other's throats and to get rid of the people who don't support what SM wants them to support.
Love Min and Yunho. However, "TVXQ" will never be a 2 member group (or a 3 member group). That's just the way it is to a lot of people and they shouldn't feel bad about feeling that way either. Trying to interfere with Cassiopeia or marketing TVXQ as a 2 member group (if that's what SM is doing) and taking advantage of Yunho's and Changmin's hard work is totally unacceptable.
SM wants to take control of the community of fans and the one surefire way to do so is to split the community. DIVIDE AND CONQUER. Did I not read numerous posts all over the internet about this very thing when this situation first happened? SM seems to be banking on the hope that most fans will drop support for JYJ when forced to choose, or be too excited about Yun and Min to care about anything else. Or maybe SM just doesn't care and wants to push out the fans who they see as traitors who supported JYJ.
I don't feel pity for anything or anybody that tries to obstruct these 5 young men being together. A million things had to go right for them to initially find each other; to take each others' hand and walk forward together.
They may be cutting different paths from one goal to the next, but this, too, may be for a reason. While missing pieces of themselves, they can still love. They can love each other no matter where in the world they exist. And because of this, all of the independent situations which had to occur for them to exist as TVXQ seem all the more remarkable.

"Ayyy Girl" now has a VIDEO! The Kanye West laced song by JYJ from their "The Beginning" album is certainly growing on me. The video hit like a bolt of lightning (pun intended) online and my twitter lit up with people posting links to it. I give it a look, and as soon as I got over how sexy "little SuSu" (Junsu) is in the video, I began to see something deeper.
However, it has come to my attention that certain people, including fans, are criticizing the video either because they don't like it or because they don't understand what seems perfectly obvious to me. The video is full of metaphor and messages.
When an artist changes from being heavily managed to being able to express their own creative freedom, you have to think more than a couple of seconds about what they're trying to convey.
