First, the tweets sent to Jaejoong from the DCI president were unprofessional and misdirected.
The latest DNBN article as distributed here attempted to defend Jaejoong against accusations that blamed him personally for the concert cancellation in Indonesia. Following a full review of the article, it is apparent that Yunjae and OT5 fans (as directly referred to by DNBN) have once again been unfairly mentioned. Although it appears the intention of this article is largely to defend Jaejoong, it is merely a mask so DNBN can shift the blame away from C-JES.
Pictured above is the first mention of TVXQ5 and OT5 in the article. The article makes it a point to state that “Cassination” is not for JYJ and instead for OT5. I presume this suggests DNBN thinks OT5 fans only support Junsu, Yoochun, Jaejoong, Changmin and Yunho when they are promoting together as one group. However, this is not always true. To clarify, OT5 fans may support all 5 members and not ‘only’ when they promote as a singular group.
Above, in reason (3) DNBN lists DCI’s choice of picking Cassination as a major contributing factor. Cassination is deemed an “inappropriate choice” for facilitating a JYJ concert. The first reason being they are OT5, as previously discussed. The second reason points to Cassination’s support of Yunjae fans.
Following DNBN’s argument, because of the above reasons, DCI should not have picked Cassination to help facilitate the concert. However, it is only briefly mentioned in reason (3) that it was in fact DCI’s fault in the first place for choosing Cassination. The specific explanations (a) and (b) focus only on the ‘flaws’ of Cassination as determined by DNBN. As if being “OT5” and “making a Yunjae banner” were the exact reasons why an entire concert would get cancelled. It is clear with the amount of elaboration DNBN makes about Cassination, that they want to shift the blame onto fans.
At the very end of the article it is mentioned that it is C-JES’s fault for not handling the concert plans in Indonesia more efficiently. Discussion involving C-JES’s involvement in the cancellation of the concert is limited to one sentence out of the entire article. Immediately following that one sentence, DNBN concludes the only culprit to blame is DCI. In their words, DCI alone had “wronged” JYJ and the fans. DNBN explicitly concludes with DCI instead of Cassination to try and make their attack on fans less apparent.
This article fails to include obvious and essential points of speculation:
1) DNBN lists reasons (1), (2), and (3) to describe the ways DCI did not adequately do their job as the official promoters of the concert.
Reason (1) states that DCI failed to properly promote the concert through the media. It is common knowledge that promotions for concerts usually appear at least weeks if not months before a concert takes place. If it is true that DCI did ‘zero’ promotion, then it only makes sense for C-JES to have fixed this problem well ahead of time and never even have continued the contractual relationship with DCI up to the cancellation.
Reason (2) describes how DCI mishandled the sale of the concert tickets. However, the source DNBN gives is actually a DNBN announcement (tweet) for fans to be cautious of purchasing tickets. C-JES did not make any official announcements to warn fans that they did not authorize DCI to sell concert tickets. DNBN states DCI sold the tickets without authorization multiple times, giving C-JES multiple opportunities to at least issue an official warning in protection of the fans. It’s plain to see, C-JES didn’t do its job.
Reason (3) says DCI made a poor choice in picking a fanclub (Cassination). Obviously if there really was an official decision to associate with Cassination, C-JES would have already known. If so, DNBN’s concentration on blaming and criticizing Cassination is unwarranted because it is all after the fact.
2) It takes the actions of all sides involved. Clearly the disputes as presented by the official announcements from C-JES and DCI make it obvious that plans had been faltering but both sides could not save the concert from being cancelled.
Lastly, the severely unbalanced focus on fans instead of the actual dispute between C-JES and DCI is alarming. DNBN’s attempt to help clarify rumors is just a decisive move to blame fans for the cancellation of the concert.
