Welcome to the TVXQ Legal Log.
This community is an attempt to maintain an orderly clearinghouse of information regarding the TVXQ lawsuit and related issues. We will provide links to various translated and untranslated news, and offer some comments on reliability, when applicable. We welcome comments, corrections, additions, and translations. The intention of this community is to be a resource,
primarily once news has already been posted elsewhere.
Please follow us on twitter (@TVXQLegalLog
) for notification about new posts and about updates/corrections to existing posts.A note about reliability...
Determining reliability for any news item is two-fold: how likely it is the news item has been reported
correctly, and how likely it is the news item is actually
correct. Example: XYZ News reports Youngwoong Jaejoong says his favorite color is blue. First, did XYZ News correctly report what Jaejoong said? And second, is Jaejoong's favorite color actually blue? Keep these things in mind.A note about links...
Because this is livejournal, we are linking to translated news stories posted primarily on livejournal. The parentheses behind each article title is the location to which the link goes, because you, as a reader, have the right to know where you're being sent. It may not be the original place the translation was posted, and you can learn all the information about who translated and which sparkling fan forum or blog has added its name to the credits when you get there. The second link is to the original source. We may have a list of "similar stories" (untranslated) listed, as well. And when we say "similar", we mean we think these articles cover the same general information, but since they're not translated we don't know for sure. (Corrections welcomed.)A note about translations...
We are not translators, and cannot vouch for the accuracy of any translations we link. If you see errors, please let us know! Please note that most translators don't link the original source when they post their translations. Thus we have to dig through online sources to try to find that original source -- sometimes we get it wrong! So let us know about those kinds of errors too.Rare is the situation in which one party is completely accurate and truthful, and all others are lying scumbags. Communication, or lack thereof, is an enormous factor in defining any one party's "truth." Reality is usually a grey area somewhere in the middle ofseveral highly-colored points of view.
