People really didn’t get what i meant, or didn’t bother reading and just jumped to conclusions in their fit of anger. :S
The rumors and theories are not by me. All i did was collate them and put them in point detail.
Like what i said before, my purpose for this. Is that these rumors would not be further exaggerated by other sources, if i posted it up first.
Another is that, regardless of whether these are true or not, my point is, we should all work in showing SM SHINee is a group worth investing in (much more than before).
Because regardless if all these are rumors or not, SHINee World is pretty much in chaos already with what have been happening these days.
(By 2ndAdm. Hate me all u want =.=)
This is just a collation of what have been going on right now, and the reason why i’m doing this.
(A lot of people have said that they don’t get the way i think most of the time… so i thought i needed to explain. And i don’t do things without considering.)
I am not a pessimist, neither am i really an optimist. I’m more of a realist.
Believe me, I really didn’t want to know what i knew, but i did. I just decided to take the stand of a fan and do something about it. And the reason why i’m saying this, is because i have faith, that fans definitely will be able to think and find out what they want to do, if something like this do happen.
As all of you followers might know, i’ve said before yesterday that i’d want to wait till the rumors are confirmed (to be true) before revealing it.
So why did i decide to release it now?
1. Other facts accounts have been found tweeting them already today.
I’ll not say what fact account, but… at this rate, other accounts will follow on and retweet it or spread it and if any of the popular news sites get whiff of it.
The chances of it being twisted till it’s beyond salvation is definitely there.
So i decided to get it done and over with and release them while clarifying it.
Take note, THEY’RE ALL STILL RUMORS.
2. Better to know now then when it really happens.
There are only 2 answers to this matter. It happens, or it doesn’t happen.
If it happens, then its great, most of us will be ready for it.
If it doesn’t, precaution is already taken, if it all goes well, SHINee might have a booming comeback. Great album sales and what not.
And if it doesn’t, the possibilities of it happening in the future is still there. And if things continue at this rate, it would inevitably end in a disbandment.
3. It is pretty much confirmed that the pictures of Jjong and Shin Sekyung was staged.
Reminder. I did NOT say for even once that their relationship is fake. (Neither did i say it was real~)
I was just saying, that the pictures taken are fake.
– Jjong is known (in several fan cams anyway) to have a pretty sharp eye, and he spots cameras easily.
– The cameras (resolution and stuff) all adds up to it being pretty huge. (Definitely not a small camera, possibly a canon model.)
– The angles of the camera proves that, the photographer(s) were not in hiding. They can’t possibly take such pictures while hiding behind lamp posts etc.
– The pictures are only of them dating for one day. Same clothes, same day, same time.
However, of course, this still stands as a rumor until something appears to clarify it.
4. I know some people will leave SHINee World when reading these.
There’s no need to tell me that, i am fully aware of the consequences. But then again, if it’s really true, and when that really happens, they’ll leave anyway. Better to leave now unhurt, then leave with a broken heart.
If it doesn’t happen, then no harm’s done, they can come back if they want to. (I hold no responsibilities to what the other fans might do.)
Then appeared several rumors, all different, but all meaning the same thing.
Here are what i posted on twitter before. The common points of the rumors.
1. Jjong’s scandal photos was planned ahead by sm.
2. Sm plans to get rid of SHINee’s idol image. Esp. Jjong
3. They plan to let jjong debut solo. (leaving SHINee with 4 members)
4. After jjong debuts solo, the other 4 remains and slowly fades off. Then disbanded. With a reason of inactivity or low profits.
5. Sm is in a financial crisis.
Ok, now people are saying, it’s definitely a rumor as SHINee have only debuted for 2 years, and they are an asset to SMEnt.
Let’s think over.
1. SHINee is not popular at all in Korea, but they are popular internationally.
Not a big deal? Since International fans overpowers Korean fans in size?
How about thinking of things in another angle.
You’re not from Korea. Albums will be higher priced in your country (if they do sell it) due to shipping rates.
Even if they are cheap in your country, they’ll reach u slower. (Meaning, you can’t aid SHINee in winning awards in music shows.)
You’re not from Korea, and they aren’t sold in your country. Only one choice. Buy it off online, where the possibilities of it being OVERLY PRICED are pretty high. Usually u’ll buy in bulk to share the shipping rate. (Where most people would decide to not buy, or buy in future when other albums are released or buy with friends)
Then again, you can’t aid SHINee in winning awards.
Regardless of what you say, Awards are gauges to companies in the popularity rate of an idol group in their country, if you’re not popular, you’re not worth investing.
If this continues on, obviously SM Ent wouldn’t value SHINee as much.
2. Even new groups that debuted after SHINee are much more popular and appealing to the mass, and they receive much more endorsements and projects.
SHINee’s image is ever changing, and every image can’t appeal to everyone.
If this continues on, there won’t be more profit going into SM compared to other groups with much better “image”. And if they are indeed in a financial crisis, i don’t see why they won’t drop them, since, cultivating and promoting a group does cost money. (Even f(x) has more projects than SHINee at their time)
3. Better to stop investing right now (and lose more money) then continue investing in a group that >might< not become famous.
Even more so if they’re in a financial crisis. Risks are not to be meddled with at this stage.
SM isn’t a charity case, they’re a business.
Cause of what they’re doing right now and why they’re doing it.
No one knows exactly for sure, and different rumors hold different causes.
Some said that SM Ent was being blackmailed, some said that SM Ent already planned this way before. Another was that they just didn’t have the money to invest.
Regardless of the cause. there’s only one thing we need to be sure of.
SM Ent doesn’t really see SHINee as an important asset.
And like what i said before
All these aside, rumors or not, i think, if we just disregard, and it becomes true, it’d be too late to change anything. Too late to help.
so please think over and decide where you stand.
Be angry and “burn” sm with ur words, become an anti, stop buying their albums.
And inevitably, destroy SHINee with your own hands. As if you stop buying their albums = Sales for SHINee will go down = All the more reason for them to stop investing in SHINee.
There is almost no way to go against SM Entertainment, without destroying your own idol.
be a fan, forget revenge, and show sm that SHINee is a group worth investing in. If not, help them accomplish their goal 1 last time, their last album release as a group, help them, win at an overwhelming rate, let them leave with good memories.
If it all goes well, SM Ent might even reconsider their plan and invest in them more.
Even if the plan was just a pure rumor, they have never thought of disbanding SHINee or letting any member debut as a solo artiste, doing such will definitely increase their value in the eyes of the company. Which further ensures their safety.
Anyway, if i really wanted to bull shit all of this through, i’d have listed down every single rumor i’ve read and heard, and all of you would be screaming your heads out by now. Who knows, some of them might even be facts.
Believe me, i’ve screamed my head off and cried when i learnt all these, way before most of you found out. I just decided to do this, because i didn’t want to just sit there and let it happen in front of me.
