Not that long ago I'd never even Heard kpop, jrock and hadn't even imagined visual kei.. then chance led me to Crunchyroll and you folks turned me on to some of the very best music I've ever heard. Unfortunately, my timing was so bad. I just got into dbsk right before they broke up. Then today, I was reading the visual kei/rock band thread and someone mentioned Kagrra. I hit youtube and absolutely Loved their music with its mix of modern and traditional Japanese instruments, not to mention the gorgeous vocals . Sure enough, they start a farewell tour next month.

It really made me feel sad. Looking at it rationally - they were together 10 years ..for a rock band that's a good run but I still felt a loss. Does it strike you that way when bands decide to call it quits? What bands do you miss that are no more?

Well, definitely DBSK. They are still around but with ONLY two members. I fucking hate JYJ for ditching those two. And JYJ's Japanese songs are no match compared with the latest album of DBSK. I hope they go back to DBSK one day. Seriously, it was so sad to hear Yunho made that kind of speech to the public.

Yep, definitely DBSK. I feel like there is a lot more to the story of the break than any of us will ever know, so as far as that, I don't take sides as far as who was right or wrong. I just hate that it had to happen. Musically though, I'm liking JYJ's stuff better than the two member DBSK. I tried listening to 'Keep Your Head Down' the other day and it just missed me somehow. I didn't hate it but there was nothing there that made me want to run out and buy it either.

I hadn't heard about the speech you mentioned..??

Kagrra is disbanding, really? I didn't like their music very much, only 2 songs, but still they made original music. I discovered DBSK, after they were going to disband. Now I don't even listen to their songs that much anymore ... And one of my favourite bands, ACID, is already disbanded since 2008.

Did TVXQ really disband or are they just on a break? My friend loves them and she claims that they have disbanded....

Well, I'm not that much of a Cassie but I was a bit sad when DBSK divided in two groups (I won't say they disbanded cause it's not official, isn't it?). But even sadder is that Cassies are parting because of this like you can clearly see after Xiah's tweet to U-Know. Something like this shouldn't happen. You should support both and not just one of them or rather support each member whatever this member is doing!

Did they really ditch? I don't think they meant too but because of the SM contracts before which were just deadly. Thank god it finally got changed. Pinky you started a dbsk subject now this whole thread will be a discussion of DBSK splitting >:[ 5$ bucks that cassie's will invade this thread with debates D:.

I was so upset when Kaggra split.... then An Cafe went on hiatus..... then when I just recently found out that Vidoll was disbanding I nearly cried If the Gazette, Girugamesh, or Alice Nine split I WILL CRY.

I was also kinda sad about DBSK's disbandment 'cause I only just found out how awesome they are... Trust me to miss out on a good thing

I don't think they actually "ditched" DBSK. SM was basically putting them though hell, according to some members and they wanted out, badly. They all had also signed a 13-year contract with SM. Now to me, that's ridiculous. And you shouldn't hate them at all for that reason, you should really put yourself in their shoes, at least they still make music. And I don't think they even planned to bring DBSK back, but 2 members stayed with SM so they just brought "DBSK" back. Also, since JYJ is signed under a different company, it comes with differetn composers, writers, ideas, sound, ect.
