By: LazerKim To Kim Hyun Joong fans who are active twitters, Red Alert means the robots which are our enemies are coming our way to eat up the votes we have cast at Mnet voting polls. By this time we are already aware about these robots and to which camp it’s coming from. Yesterday we had another red alert at around 2pm-2:30pm, we had a vote gap of 54,514 votes at 2:03pm as last reported prior to the attack and this gap slide down to 17:676 at 2:30pm, meaning we lost as much as 36,838 votes in 30min.
As this attack occur, I was asking myself, are we gonna have this attack everyday until the 27th of this month? The recent two days the attack occur on Friday and Saturday at 4-5pm at the same time, now they change it, because they knew we already know what time they intend to attack. Since Friday until now I have been closely monitoring the five contenders under the Global Star category, and so far it is only Jang Geun Suk who has such speed in changing votes by seconds and in huge figure as 1,000 votes per second as minimum.
I have been hearing rumors about the past on line voting, and indeed there were magic! And since I’m new fan of Kim Hyun Joong, this is the first time for me to get myself involve in this on line voting, I ask the veteran fans what transpired in the past years during poll voting. They mentioned to me the case of Jang Geun Suk and shared some written facts which I would like to share to the new fans. There was indeed fraud on the camp of Jang Geun Suk over the past years 2010, 2011, and 2012 what we are experiencing at present had already happened in the past years. In short, history repeating!!. I gathered news write ups information as to what transpired during the time Jang Geun Suk camp cheated or manipulated the voting polls.

Yahoo Asia Buzz Awards” under fire for suspicious poll results
A controversy has recently been surrounding the ’2010 Yahoo Asia Buzz Awards’, as many fans are doubting the legitimacy of its online voting system.
Between November 8th and the 30th, Yahoo has been conducting an online poll for three categories:‘Korean Male Buzz Star’, ‘Korean Female Buzz Star’ and ‘Asia’s Buzz Star‘.
The problem that had caught the attention of sharp fans is that the poll results for some nominees had either taken a sharp rise or drop in a spontaneous fashion. For instance, in the ‘Male Buzz Star’ category, Jang Geun Suk‘s poll results saw sharp rises and falls at a continuous rate, while a considerable number of votes for Kim Hyun Joong dropped unexepectedly.
Consequently, many netizens are suspecting the poll results to have a substantial error in voting calculations.
Fans have become even more angered by Yahoo’s lack of investigation on this matter, who merely called it a simple ‘server error’. Netizens commented, “The globally acknowledged Yahoo doesn’t want to be humiliated in public, which is why they are ignoring the hard work of the fans”, “I want to rebuke Yahoo for their lack of action regarding this issue.”
Responding to such criticism, a representative of Yahoo Korea explained on December 2nd, “There was a problem with the server overloading, however, we have not been able to confirm a manipulation of the poll results. We are still inspecting the reasons behind these errors.”
They carefully continued, “We cannot reveal a correct set of poll results without fully completing our investigation. We cannot confirm anything for now.”
Meanwhile, according to the online poll results on the site, Jang Geun Suk ranked 1st place for the ‘Male Buzz Star’ category for this year’s ‘Buzz Awards’.

Here’s another analysis from BabyVfan’s Blog:
Kim Hyun Joong – Yahoo Buzz Voting Trends & Screen Captures
I may be a computer illiterate, I may not have graphs to show what I have observed at Mnet voting polls, but I think a simple common sense and observation may be enough to identify a fraud. But reading from these facts I can conclude that the same thing is currently happening at Mnet under the Global Star category on Jang Geun Suk vote counts. And I think it’s the same team from the same Jang Geun Suk camp who’s trying to manipulate the polls.
I read from somewhere that JGS is quite active at the internet, in fact he has his own twitter account. Therefore I think it’s impossible for him not to know all these facts I have shared with you, because it’s all over the internet. Now I couldn’t understand why is this still happening? Haven’t he done anything about this that similar incident is happening again? That as if every year every time there’s gonna be an on line voting this incident will happen again and again?
I wonder, if he has a knowledge that cheating on his side occur in the previous years, I can’t help ask myself doesn’t JGS have confidence in his fans that they will support him in the most honest way? Or if this is his some fans doing, this only goes to show that the fans doubted that their idol will not win if they will not cheat. And this is so frustrating, because you’re stealing the votes of other idols from all the effort of their fans and this is totally unfair. There may be just a few fans doing this I don’t mean to generalized.
I have witnessed how the JGS camp stole those votes and you know what, it hurts for us Kim hyun Joong fans to see our votes being stolen by JGS camp. We are all fans here, we want to see our idols to receive an award and this is one present that we can give him which is priceless. So where is the integrity of being a fan if what you’re giving to your idol is something obtained from cheating? Or if JGS has the knowledge about this cheating, then I would ask, wow, is this your way to show to the world that you are the most popular Hallyu star? I repeat, I’m just asking. As I mentioned in my article yesterday Fight Back, this will reflect on JGS done by a few of his fans, that other innocent fans can be affected.
I just remember, one time Hyun Joong was saying, his fans would apologized to him if his fans were not able to bring him to the top, and Hyun Joong would respond, “It’s alright, it’s not your fault, I will work harder to be deserving to win next time”. After reading these facts that I have shared you I can imagine how hurt Hyun Joong fans were that time.
Voting is a fan’s effort with the sincere hope to bring her idol right on that stage to receive a priceless award that we fans can give to him. And it will only be stolen by others, I would say it’s disgusting, because I personally experienced and witnessed how fast our votes were eaten up in huge figures in seconds. As I mentioned in my other article, the feeling is like being in a hospital ICU and trying to save a life that I can not do anything to save a life. That is exactly how it feels seeing all those votes coming from the fans effort and would just be stolen by others who wants to be on top the easiest way.
I brought up this matter not for sour grape but to point out some wrong doings which I think has to be straighten up. I wouldn’t be just sitting around and watch these monsters eat up our votes, I think it is just right to let every fan know about what’s going on around Mnet voting polls. And for the new fans which majority of my readers are, that I would not want to blind you or mislead you just to encourage you to keep voting.
But to allow you to see that these things do happen and for us to be aware and learn from it. I do not have any idea whatever happened to these written facts I have shared but I do hope Mnet would look into these matters. With Yahoo Buzz I think the organization took actions and change the system in poll voting, that’s why they had a smooth voting polls last year. Well, that’s what I heard from the veteran fans since they have monitored the polls last year.
I would just want to say, I’m honored and very proud being a Kim Hyun Joong fan, that I made right in my choice of idol. And so Alien we continue with the battle against the robots, we have three days left to go to vote and to guard our votes. If there’s a call for RED ALERT, we hold our votes for a while, make noise to keep everyone alert that the robots are on their attack and so that other fans can tune in to Mnet current ranking and observe how the robots eat up our votes. As I always say, do not be discourage just go on voting till the very last minute of June 27th.
We fight till the end and Protect the Prince. All for the love of Kim Hyun Joong….
