dong bang shin ki MEGA UBER VIDEO SPAM.  
So, kaosspad has finally been pulled over to the dark side.

Welcome to the World of K-Pop, Jessica. Muahahahaaaaaa.

And since DBSK is, and will always be, my favorite, I've decided to do a spam. This is as fun for me to reminicse as it should be for Jess to discover. XD

Okay, how about we start off with a basic bio of the group. Then we can move onto videos, which is the best part! This will obviously all have to go under a cut.




Dong Bang Shin Ki (DBSK/TVXQ, 동방신기, 東方神起) formed under SM Entertainment in 2003. They kicked ass in Korea, and then went and kicked ass in Japan. Their 7 years as a group has basically been a bunch of ass kicking.

In early 2010, three members Junsu, Yoochun and Jaejoong filed a lawsuit against their company, SME, because their contracts forced them to be with the company for at least 13 years, and other issues including time management, being overworked, and unfair distribution of profits. Since then more lawsuits from SM artists have come out, and the term "slave contract" has been flung around, liek, everywhar.

The three who filed the lawsuit are now functioning as a trio called JYJ, while Changmin and Yunho are still with SME and are coming back as a duo, still under the name Dong Bang Shin Ki, with their new music video being released on January 5th, 2011 (jizzing in my pants already).

So that's about all you need to know, unless you want details. The lawsuit bullshit was a bunch of drawn-out misery, so it's not really worth looking into. They haven't officially disbanded and many fans are hoping that they will eventually return as five, but who knows when, or if, that will happen.

Okay, onto the videos! There are so many music videos, so I'll just be posting the most famous ones.

Hug was their debut and they were instantly popular. Look how young and cute they were. Aww.



Rising Sun is what thrust them further into stardom, and it's a classic.



Whatever They Say shows how talented they really are. With a lot of K-pop, and music around the world, it's all autotuned and overproduced and gross, but this shows that these guys are real singers.



Tri-Angle was their really weird visual kei-ish period. This song features other awesome SM artists, BoA and TRAX.



Sorry if I'm not going in perfect chronological order here, I've only been a fan for like 2 years. :p

Balloons is a fun, silly song that was originally a popular Korean song from the 70's. Look at them be dorks.



O-正.反.合. Back to some serious ass-kicking. When I was playing K-pop for my dad, he actually liked this song. That's saying a lot.



Purple Line is pretty sweet. And my favorite color is purple, so this video is like an eyegasm, including the hot Korean guys, of course. ;)



Mirotic was the first video of theirs I saw, and I was instantly hooked. This shit is epic. It's probably their most famous single/music video.



Wrong Number is also from the Mirotic album, and it's moody and awesome.



Are You a Good Girl is another one from the Mirotic album, except this video is a compilation of their live performances.



Unfortunately, their Mirotic promotions were the last time they were one group in Korea. Their last single/video as a group was Japanese, which leads me to some of my favorites of their albums in Japan, where they were known as Tohoshinki. (btw, this will totally not be in chronological order, since I'm much less familiar with their Japanese career than their Korean one)

If Survivor shows what the world will look like after an apocalypse, then bring it on! XD



Bolero is just beautiful. That's the only word I can use to describe it.



Actually, I think Asu Wa Kuru Kara was their debut in Japan. I love this song.



Why Did I Fall In Love With You? is a gorgeous song, especially when not interrupted by the story in the video. But I like videos with plots.



Share The World is just a fun song, and I like the effects in the video.



There's just a feeling about My Destiny that I really like. It's kind of a chill-out song, even if the video seems a bit moody.



Melody and Harmony was a duet that Jaejoong and Yoochun did for Hello Kitty's 35th anniversary. Just a cute, happy song. I wouldn't go for this stuff if it was in English, though. I'm a hypocrite, I don't care.



Break Out! was their last major video as a group. Kind of depressing in retrospect, but this is actually a really upbeat awesome song that I used to dance to all the time. (Updated with a better quality video!)



Okay, now it's time for some live performances and other random videos.

Love in the Ice is just an amazing song and shows again how these guys can sing, and actually do sing live at concerts. I love it.



This is just a fun compilation video from variety shows. I like it because it shows how funny and goofy and real these guys are.



Laughing. (Changmin is my future husband, jsyk)



This is funny and has a sweet ending. XD



DBSK and their Engrish.



This one doesn't allow embedding but it's funny so I'll just link it. They have to copy whatever this crazy ass Japanese guy does. XD http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXy-wkew-I4

I discovered this one just the other day. Yoochun's Pimp Diaries. LOL.



Anyway, to wrap it up, here's JYJ's debut video as a trio, in ENGLISH OH EM GEE.

Ayyy Girl is not my favorite song from JYJ's new stuff, but I think the video is pretty cool. Some fans didn't like the video because the style and effects were weird. Seems to be one of those love it or hate it things.



And this is HoMin's new video, with the two still under the name of DBSK.

Keep Your Head Down is epic. Look how fucking buff Changmin is. RAWRRRR UNF.



You think I posted enough videos? XD

Anyway, hope that was informative! I'm exhausted. LMAO.
