Hi~ My friend and I are making a site for DBSK, just for North America and we really need a name. I was wondering if you can help us spread out the news. I really want to make this official, and I want make this thing BIG like you know. FIRST NORTH AMERICA LIVE TOUR! You get me? XD

<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript" src="http://s3.polldaddy.com/p/880916.js"></script><noscript> <a href ="http://answers.polldaddy.com/poll/880916/" >Dong Bang Shin Ki's North American Fanclub Name</a> <br/> <span style="font-size:9px;"> (<a href ="http://www.polldaddy.com"> surveys</a>)</span></noscript>

And this is the meaning of each ones.

Both the Forum and website are under construction right now but we still don't have an official name. This poll will run from today to Monday next week. Everyone from US and its territories(Guam, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Northern Mariana Islands), Canada, and Mexico are all encourage to vote and visit the forum and website once it's up. These are the 5 names that members (CR and other forums) liked and me and Kaori chose.

Eternal Light by minoli

the endless light, support, hard work, happiness, courage and caring that is given to the fans by DBSK and vise-versa

Five by Five by chleimel

wikipedia - In radio communication, the term "Five by five" is used to indicate perfect signal strength and clarity. Five by Five is the best of 25 possible subjective responses used to describe the quality of communications. As receiving stations move away from an analog radio transmitting site, the signal strength decreases gradually while noise levels increase. The signal becomes increasingly more difficult to understand until it can no longer be heard as anything other than static.

what it could mean for us DBSK fans/advantage - if "five by five" was to be used.... It could mean that whether we are here in North America, and they're all the way in Asia or any part of the world, the love they send to their fans and the love, we, the fans, send to them will always be in "five by five" condition. Meaning, our love and support for DBSK (and the love they show us) will always be perfectly strong and clear no matter the circumstances, and that we will always have a perfect mutual connection with them no matter where they are.

Disadvantage - It's a bit boring Image


LEO by chleimel
wikipedia - Leo is the fifth astrological sign of the Zodiac, originating from the constellation of Leo. In western astrology, this sign is no longer aligned with the constellation as a result of the precession of the equinoxes(refers to the precession of the Earth's rotational axis). In astrology, Leo is considered to be a "masculine", positive (extrovert) sign. It is also considered a fire sign and is one of four fixed signs.[1] Leo is ruled by the Sun.

what it could mean for us DBSK fans - DBSK has five members, and leo is the fifth astrological sign. Leo is considered to be a masculine sign, and yes, all our DBSK members are indeed men with more than great physical attributes. And seeing as Leo is a positive sign, then it can show that DBSK will always have positive future and an ever increasing love from us fans. Leo i ruled by the sun, an where does the sun rise? The East. (I think you guys get what I'm trying to say about the east and sun deal, DBSK being the rising gods of the east and all). And since it is a fire sign, fire is usually associated with the colour red - DBSK's official fan colour.

Advantage - people can play around with this name more... meaning add meanings to each letter like, "Legendary Eastern Order" or "Leading Eastern Order" or something like that to symbolize that DBSK is... well, what the name implies.(okay that was a lame attempt for giving it meaning, but it was good for a 30 second thing). Oe pople can add a word before or after "LEO"

Disadvantage - It's simple. Plain. According to my explanation, there's no solid meaning to it Image ... yet. Unless you guys give it one of course. :)

Schedar by LJKanimes

as all of you know the costellation Cassiopeia is made up of 5 stars representing each member. Namely Schedar, Caph, Cih, Ruca, and Segin. Schedar is the brightest of them all and is colored rose pink, too. I wanted North America to be Schedar, the other continents could take the other 4...lols...

Selene by Kaori Hoshiko

Selene is the brother of Helios (Greek Mythology), the god of the sun. Some of you might know him as Sol in Roman Mythology. Using Selene it would meant that DBSK and Cassies are family. They're the sun and we're the moon. In Roman Mythology its Luna. You can see the moon in day light but it's still there. The meaning of it for us North American Fans is that even though we're of different cultures and will appear when they're asleep, we're still there shining and watching over them.

Notes:

I like Eternal Light, it has great meaning in it.
Five by five has great meaning, too, but like what chleimel said, it's boring and simple. We tried changing the name in Latin, Japanese-Korean, and other names but it just doesn't sound right. The same goes for Leo.
Schedar, I'm not really considering it but some people like it. I was planning on using those 5 names to refer in each of the red seas in our website or forum so that people would know. Schedar would be US, though I know it might appear quite bias to some, I just thought that since US is the biggest and the 1st biggest music industry it suits the name. While Seca (Segin and Caph) is Canada and Ruci (Ruca and Cih) is Mexico. If you guys think about, if you combine each of those stars they'll be brighter and bigger than Schedar; and Schedar sounds like cheese. I was thinking of combining those 5 stars but I can't think of any.
I personally like Selene (Selena), it has meaning in it, maybe not as great or appealing as Eternal Light and Five By Five, but it's simple yet sophisticated.

Suggestions are still open, if it's great we might change our choice and if you can come up with a combination for the 5 stars then great. But this poll will be up for just a week and then we'll tally the votes and inform you guys(it won't just be here in CR)...by then we might have the forum and website available in 3 weeks. We plan on releasing the forum before DBSK's 4th comeback album, so we'll be working on it hope it will turn out great.

Thanks^_~

You guys...you guys seriously rock so much! If you need any help, please don't hesitate to ask me ^^ I'm all in for this project

I like Selene. It has a really deep meaning behind it. Cassiopeia is the sun, and we're the moon...sounds really nice <3




And maybe I'm just being a idiot, but i can hear DBSK giving thanks to Selene right now XD
