By: LazerKim There are barely two days left to go to end up the Global Mnet poll voting as Kim Hyun Joong being nominated under he category Global Star. Win or lose for us fans Kim Hyun Joong remains the Global Star in our hearts, we all know he’s one and only deserving star for the title. We Aliens continue to vote and guard our votes till the very last-minute of the polls as it ends tomorrow June 27.
Last night Hyun Joong drop to no. 4 again and SuperJunior went up to no.1. And again after gaining 91,000 vote we lost it again. It took almost 7 hours to regain a gap of of 9,000, and we lost it again that JGS took over no.3 rank. But surprisingly JGS was able to gain a gap of 10,000 in less than 30mins. What more with losing over a hundred thousand votes in less than an hour. It was not only me who witnessed this sudden dropped of votes many fans had seen it too. Can anyone tell me how can this be done?
As of this morning as I woke Hyun Joong is back to no.3 with a very slim gap, and again back to no.4 at around 10am and so with Girls Generation back to no.2. This really seem like a roller coaster now. Is Mnet playing games with the fans now? The four contenders were given 1% gap from each contender and we barely have today and tomorrow to cast our votes, so let’s just play the game of Mnet and get over done with, we keep voting the normal way we do it!!
As a rookie or a new fan what have I learned in this voting polls? Majority of my readers are new fans of Hyun Joong and I admit on-line voting is new to most of us. They said one will not learn if she will not give it a try to get involve and experience is a part learning. It’s like in a close door room you wouldn’t know what’s in the room if you will not get inside that room to find out what’s in there. The same thing applies when we try to get involve in this Mnet poll voting and indeed I’ve learned and discovered a lot. Good for me since I’m not a computer genius, on the contrary I’m a computer illiterate!!
I got so many questions that I would like to find answers, and maybe this is just natural for a rookie like myself who is filled with curiosity pertaining to this voting polls. I have been wondering as to how Mnet or any voting polls earn out of this poll voting? And until now I’m still at lost on how the votes are counted? Does the Mnet lack transparency, or have I miss a lot out of the ruling on how this game is being played? Is on line voting credible enough in weighing a star popularity? I don’t think so!!
With everything transpired in the last three weeks, I have learned a lot be it something to be enjoyed about or something to be sad about. But most of all what I have seen among Kim Hyun Joong fans is unity and how they fight this battle without losing their dignity in voting. I have seen sincere concern about the polls getting involve, religiously cast their votes everyday and most of all, a stronger friendship among the fans were built. There is coordination and cooperation among the fans in taking turns with monitoring Mnet movement, and at night time we take turns in guarding.
We may not be able to do anything about the machine to be controlled but by just being involve in monitoring on how this robot works we somehow learn something good or not so good it is still an experience. Maybe the essence of togetherness and unity during this period is what we rookies will always remember, the lessons we learned out of this activity, good or not so good.
As a new fan, we may be ignorant about how this polls work but we are with sincerity in casting our votes just the same intent and passion as the veterans. Well we have today and tomorrow to cast our votes, Mnet may be offering a roller coaster ride, then let’s enjoy the ride and just keep on voting till the last minute. Win or lose we are still the winners because we have an idol who is truly deserving of our love and support. We have nothing to regret about because we have done what we fans ought to do in a dignified way.
Kim Hyun Joong is always a winner in our hearts. We continue with the fight and we do this out of sincere effort and always stay courageous in Protecting the Prince.
