Irritated fan is worse than a hornet

   On April 27th, JYJ fans launched a newspaper advertisement to show their displeasure with JYJ being blocked from appearing on broadcasts. With the tagline of "You're going to sing on TV? YOU?" and the theme of "101 Ways to Block JYJ from Broadcasts," the advertisement was designed to resemble the publication of a book. (Source: Ilkan Sports Translation: koreaboo)
The court hearing was scheduled to be on April 19th, but it was postponed for a month. Again.
Everyone is tired already.

So to cheer everyone up:
About the strange nicknames fans give to idols. I omitted the rest of the uninteresting crowd.
Kim Junsu:
JYJ's Junsu earned the nickname of "Dolphin" after his voice was revealed to have an uncanny similarity to that of a dolphin call. The nickname was based on the fact that both Junsu's vocal abilities and the call of dolphins are produced at a frequency too high for the human ear to hear. This is a reference to the fact that Junsu can easily reach very high notes due to his wide vocal range. Recently, Junsu was ranked the most vocally talented idol group member and fans responded with an unsurprised "Of course our Junsu."
Park Yucheon:
JYJ's Park Yoochun earned himself the unpleasant but hilarious nickname of "Seaweed Monster" after his hairstyle in JYJ's "Ayy Girl" MV became a hot topic. Yoochun's long and wavy hair caused fans to leave comments such as "It looks like seaweed." When Yoochun cut his long hair and returned to having a clean-cut short hairstyle, the response was so immense that "Park Yoochun Haircut" became a most searched phrase on various online portals.
