이처럼 동방신기 5명 유노윤호, 영웅재중, 믹키유천, 시아준수, 최강창민 이라는 별이 빛나니까,

그자리가 바로 ‘하늘에 떠 있는 다섯개의 별’ 카시오페아라는거죠!

  1. I thought “Cassiopeia” was also the name because “TVFXQ” on a keyboard looked like the constellation..maybe I just imagined reading that somewhere though. I have no idea what the Cassiopeia constellation looks like… ^^;

  2. So Nyuh Shi Dae (girls generation) fans club not name as soshi or soshified? and thier balloon colour not supposed purple or pink?
    Futhermore, FT Island not used green colour of balloon?

  3. SHINee balloon colour is Silver Pearlescent which looks like a pearl Aqua.

    F.T Island uses Yellow Flags

    Big Bang: Bandanas

    You forgot Kara… Kamilia is Kara’s official fanclub name. Members of their official website voted on this name. It is Kara + Familia = Kamilia.

    Balloon: Peach Pearl

  4. I don’t think gom forgot…there are a lot of balloons and fan clubs. Some of them are really cute. x3

  5. thankssss!!
    i was wondering wat cassiopiea means
    since rain has a song with dat title

  6. ok honestly heard all of them but SS501, FT Island and SNSD group I didn’t know the meaning yet until today~~
    So yeah Mew!
    That “TVFXQ” thing never ever come across my mind until you said so!

  7. as for the BB fanclub, i thought it was named VIP b/c they had a song of the same name…?

    but otherwise, this is a really informative post. the organization of fanclubs in korea is so fascinating; it’s good to have all this info in one place :)

  8. mynnkun, soshified is an international forum’s name.
    And that pastel rose heart is a pink :D
    FTI uses yellow flag.. :D its called Pentasticks

  9. the constellation Cassiopeia is composed of five stars forming the letter W. just like how the five stars–jaejoong, yoochun, junsu, changmin, and yunho–form the group TVFXQ, which as Mew said, forms the letter W too on the keyboard. and dont you think W stands to WIN too? hahaha. (i made the last one myseld xD)

  10. this is interesting! :D

    @mynnkum: SoShi is shortened form of SoNyuh ShiDae, and Soshified is SNSD international forums.

    their fanclub named S♡NE (Sowon) but in English it also can be read as So-One.

    thus, based on the Sowon’s lyrics (“I have a WISH please let my LOVE stay forever”, therefore the two Os is replaced by a heart sign), the Korean meaning, and the English meaning.. the word S♡NE can be translated as “a Wish that SNSD + fans can be One and in Love forever”

    lol yeah. I’m a S♡NE.. and it has a lil deeper meaning than simply a “wish”. :)

  11. Cassiopeia is a constellation in the northern sky. Cassiopeia is easily recognizable due to its distinctive ‘W’ shape formed by five bright stars in north sky.

    i think VIP isn’t meaning Big Bang is Very Impotant Person.. it’s the opposite.. the fans are become Very Important Person for Big Bang. V.I.P. is also in reflection of their second single “Big Bang is V.I.P.”

    For Elf, Elf is also known as fairy. they want be a fairy who will protect super junior.

    for me i love the name of Elf.. ^^
    hope it can help!

  12. loooove kim jaejoong fighting!!!!!!!
    hugs and kisses joongi

  13. Cool!

  14. snsd dedicated a song, “forever” to s♡nes as a promise to stay together “forever” and thus the fans were named s♡ne because it’s a wish and promise between snsd and fans to be one; it’s a bond that can’t be broken :]

    hehe ~
