I’m not a fan of Shinhwa or Orange Caramel, but I think it’s stupid that Orange Caramel is trying to take the orange color from Shinhwa, EVEN if it’s only for a short period of time. I don’t know too much about Shinhwa’s history, but as far as I know, they’ve used the orange color since 1998 and I think that even if the don’t “own” the color, it should only be Shinhwa using that color- even if the word “orange” is in Orange Caramel’s name.
OK from some of the notes, I can tell that people don’t get it. That’s fine. You don’t have to really understand the importance of fandom color, but DON’T try to tell me that it’s JUST a color.…
Last thing: If I see statements such as “What about that show Orange is the New Black? Are you going to go after them?”, “What if I have an Orange room? Can’t I have that?”, etc I will treat them with all the scorn such stupid statements deserve. We are talking within the KPOP sphere here.
my nigga it is just a color
a lot of colors overlap http://kpoplists.com/post/3637287228
deal with it.
who told y’all OC’s shade of orange was the same that Shinwha was using.
Like do you know how many kpop groups have pink as their color?
so fucking extra.
Baby VOX had pink before SNSD. Are SNSD not supposed to use pink because of that?
No cause that’s a stupid ass reason.
Other fandoms have color overlaps because two factors:
a. The other idol group that using that color already disband; which not happening with Shinhwa and the fandom (SHCJ). As unicornsgalaxy has stated there, Shinhwa and SHCJ already live for 17 years without any other fandom care to take orange. It might sounds ridiculous for you to know that SHCJ began so protective over any sign that shown other fandom using orange (in this case, yes, every shade of orange), especially when the idol itself (Shinhwa) had stated that they will protect their orange. Orange Caramel might be not using orange as cheering tool in future, why SHCJ took it seriously because they won’t slack a bit. Slack a bit, orange might become an official color of Orange Caramel.
b. The fandom itself allowed other fandom to use same color. Which won’t ever happened in Shinhwa Changjo fandom. Even for White Angels (H.O.T’s fandom) they won’t allow any other idol group using white but in the other hand they let Rain (or other solo singer) to use white. It is their decision. So is Shinhwa Changjo. They have decision to not allowed other fandom to use orange (any shade).
It is indeed not written in Korean Law about this, but this become unwritten rule in Kpop. Because it will become management’s issue when it will be made into official one. Dongwan Shinhwa himself ever went to YG to ask them not using orange for Big Bang’s color, so how SHCJ can silent with this?
That’s why, you can look, that no other than Shinhwa using orange until now.
Please note that this only happened it KPOP-sphere, not in another sphere. There might be a company (property developer, example) named Shinhwa and using orange, SHCJ won’t bother tho.
And I believe this fuss only happened within International fans. I guess everyone in Korea already know about this unwritten rules as it is their own entertainment world. So, it might be our duty as we know about why colors become so serious issue in Kpop, to other intl fans that have not know about this.
It is not just about goddamn color in Kpop and it is quite deep issue there.
