Look , you have to look at this in a wider perspective instead of the ‘6-1=0’.
Yes, we all are sad the fact that they need to proceed the concert without Andy. But what other choice they have? Postpone the concert? Cancel it?
The rep is representing Shinhwa, no? What they had said in the news is plain, simple & respectful. It’s nice to have every one as a group at the Anniversary concert but at what cost?
1. Concert venue was booked way in advance. If they canceled, not only paying for the penalty but can’t perform there for 3 years.
2. Regardless who decide Andy’s absence, would Andy feels good that the planned concert is canceled + paying for the penalties because of him?
3. Without Andy, they have to re-arrange all the songs & choreo for all the performances. That’s easier to do than canceled/postponed it to later date? Going through all that troubles they gotta have good reason for it.
4. Most importantly, is Andy ready to be in the public yet? I rather he taking it slow with the 2 days concert than risk prolong his reflection period if the K-public still not ‘forget’.
When Andy temporary left the group in 2001, we all know how hard Shinhwa fought to get him back to the group. Any decision they make is not without care for each member and the group as a WHOLE. They have a company to run. I’m glad they don’t run it with rational and impulsive feelings.
I’m sad Andy can’t be there but It’s sadder seeing the whole group being punished.
Wow… I didn’t think it would get this far… First Shinbang, now…
This is inexcusable. Really is. And to think I was the one who was the angriest at Andy and forgave him this quick… Shincom, there are other, better, ways to punish Andy, not this. This robbing 1/6 of SHCJ of their bias.
And this is my suggestion, SHCJ. Let’s boycott the concert. Let’s make it so that no one shows up at the concert and let’s show them that this is not the right way. Andy has already suffered because of that mistake, while nothing happened to that idiot Hyesung. It’s enough. Don’t go through with this, Shincom.
Wow… I realize that everyone is entitled to have a gut reaction and to be a bit upset at first (I know I was but I quickly started to think logically), but this is just too far.
There is just so much that is upsetting in this post that I can barely think straight. I usually let people to their own stupidity but I’m sorry, I just can’t this time.
Did you not READ Phi’s post about the penalties that they could incur if they cancel the concert? Did you just not understand it? Do you think that Shinhwa Company is a huge and financially stable company? Even if you disregard any monetary penalty they would have to pay, there is still the issue of them possibly not being able to have a concert in that venue for 3 years. Now I know people might be thinking “So who cares, have it somewhere else” but that venue has a lot of special meaning to Shinhwa.
And this is not Shinhwa trying to punish Andy! Do you REALLY think that they want to perform without their beloved member? Do you think that this is easy for them? That they are just taking this decision lightly?
How do you know that this wasn’t Andy’s idea? I mean they’ve been in the business for 16+ years. They all know the consequences of being on the public’s bad side. He might have came up with this. Also he might just not be ready to be in front of people. Would you really want him to have to put himself through something that he wasn’t ready to face just because you are being selfish?
And to even think that someone would suggest boycotting the concert. I find that to be inexcusable. Yeah, great idea. HURT your bias group both financially and emotionally because they made a hard decision and are trying to do what they think is best for Andy, Shinhwa, and Shinhwa Changjo. That boycotting idea is the lowest of the lows and completely selfish. It would serve no purpose other than to hurt Shinhwa as a whole, Shinhwa Company (which may I remind you is run by the Shinhwa Members), and most of all Andy.
Last but certainly not least, you think that nothing happened to ‘that idiot Hyesung’. First, how DARE you call Hyesung an idiot. Second, did you even take the time to look up anything about his issue? Cause honestly, you are just talking out your ass here. Since you seem to be incapable of using Google, here, let me help you : http://bit.ly/1eLm5cH Look up his case and see that he did suffer during his issue.
Like I said, everyone is allowed to have a gut reaction and be a bit upset but this was just too far. From everything that I’ve seen on twitter and tumblr people had their initial gut reaction and then started to actually look at it from Shinhwa’s point of view and understand while still being sad about the whole situation.
