[Brainstorming] Project #2: Sixth Anniversary Gift  
I know it's a little early to be talking about our boy's sixth anniversary, but we don't want to start things too late and not be able to finish on time!
The purpose of this post is to introduce the community to our plan for the sixth anniversary gift and to brainstorm ideas for how to accomplish it. There are several issues we'll need to overcome before we can get this thing finished! Here is an explanation of our gift idea:

Since our goal is to show DBSK the love of international fans, and just how far and wide we reach, we want to showcase the different places that all their fans live in! What we want to do is have fans film themselves dancing to Hug (doing the actual, official dance) in front of monuments that their hometown is famous for. Even if you're from a small town or city, film somewhere where you live. Then upload the video along with a sort introduction to a file server like Mediafire or Megaupload. From there [info]bitaichan and I will collect all the videos and make them into a music video to send on DVD to the boys!

There are a few kinks in the plan to sort out, so don't start filming just yet! We would like your input on the following things to make this go as smoothly as possible.
  1. We would like to put Korean (or Japanese if we need to) subtitles on the introduction clips so that the boys can understand what we're saying. To do this we would need help from someone who speaks Korean fluently. We might also need help from a subber.
  2. What do you think would be the best plan of action for making this happen? We were thinking of having a sign up post to see who is interested. Then we will probably assign parts of the dance, so that you don't have to learn all of it if you don't want to.
  3. This is the biggest one. We're not exactly sure how to go about getting this to the boys! If anyone knows how to send in gifts, or the best way to go about it, we would love your input! [info]bitaichan and I will research this soon, but help from those that already know would be much appreciated!
Also, if you have an idea about how we can make this even more awesome, leave a comment! Every idea and question is welcome.

As a side note, since we're still brainstorming this project, we won't start advertising yet. Don't want things to get too confusing too fast. :)

Hello! I actually stumbled upon this comm while I was reading shepardlover's One Shot Prologues :D :D :D

I'm afraid there isn't much I can offer as far as services that can be helpful to you (according to what you listed), but I'm a huge fan of DBSK and I'd love to be a part of this! I'll help any way I can. &hearts

My input is... if there are (hopefully) going to be people from all over the world recording videos, and you want to translate what they're saying into Korean (or Japanese), then you need to find people who not only understand those languages, but can translate them into Korean. Unless you get everyone to say a predetermined message, and in that case it would easier. You could even designate specific parts of each message to different people so that you can combine them to one cohesive message. But there's still the problem of communication. Otherwise this might be more limited to those who understand (or know other people) who understand English and can convey the message to other people.

Um, ._. I didn't mean to be a party pooper or anything, that was just my imput.
(ohh, I can shoot myself dancing to Hug in front of one of Alaska's huge mountains! Or maybe a glacier? )

This is a really cool idea. We'll DEFINITELY be working on making this happen. We are kind of limited to mainly English speakers at the moment, which sucks. D:

farah can translate into Japanese if the need be, although we hope to be able to put it into Korean... *sigh*

There are still a lot of bugs to work out. THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT!

omg i happened to see this comm from dbsg :D I must say~ this idea is absolutely brilliant!! it's sooooooo cute <33333

Hmmm...not too sure if it'll work...but I remember reading on the dbsg comm where someone wanted to send something to the boys and one of the suggestions was to send it to Junsu's dad (to the pizza place) XD So maybe if we send the DVD to him, he may be able to pass it on to them! Hehehe just a suggestion XD

And gahhh I'm sorry I can't really offer much =( I don't speak Korean or Japanese...I was part of a subbing team but only as a QC-er =S With that said, I hope I can help in some way! =DD

I'm glad you like it. We should be putting the final touches on the idea in a week or so, and then we'll officially get it underway!

Seems like Junsu's dad is the best bet. I found the address for his pizza place and it sounds like a lot of fans give their gifts that way. I sure hope it works! And even if it doesn't, at least we know we tried! :)
