Min Jae is in need of his ex-group mates! I've giving free reign over their personalities and so on, as well as what they're up to now. It would be super helpful if you wouldn't mind reading over his <a href="http://soundsandlights.b1.jcink.com/index.php?showtopic=1732">application</a>, but within this ad I'm mostly going to cover D-FY's history together a little, as well as their disbandment and what Min Jae is doing now. The one thing I would really like would be if at least one or two of the members still held a grudge against Min Jae for his actions- however well intended they were- when they were still a group, but I don't want the whole group to hate him because that would probably be harder for us to plot and thread them together, etc. But the key element is that there should be some kind of tension between the members, not necessary just directed at Min Jae but even to one another in general. Here we go!
D-FY was created by a very small company called KISS Entertainment, a play off of the founder's (Kang In Sik) initials KIS. The individual members likely trained for different amounts of time, but as a group they trained together for a year and a half before debuting in 2007 as D-FY. Their debut was met with moderate success; while they weren't well-known nor did they make a huge splash in the industry, they managed to gain a decent fan base, which was good enough for KISS Entertainment to keep working to make them more popular. And sure enough, seven months later they had their first comeback and caught the attention of many. D-FY's popularity grew immensely and they soon rivaled even groups from the larger companies. Their fan club, D-FYANTS, along with the fan base of the group NTROPY that debuted a year after them, often were at odds with one another and compared the two groups to each other despite their very different sounds.
Despite this, D-FY enjoyed six/six and a half years of incredible success. However, in 2013 things began to get messy. The group's lead dancer and visual, Min-J learned from one of his closest friends, a girl within KISS Entertainment who was like a sister to him, that the company's CEO and other shareholders/higher ups were routinely taking advantage of several of the female trainees and idols in the company. Unable to let what he discovered slide without doing anything, he set up a trap to record and catch the CEO admitting to the very things his friend had told him about. The day after he got the proof he needed, he took what he had found to the police but didn't stop there and in an effort to be certain no one could pay to make everything go away, also took everything to the media as well. His bold actions instantly outed KISS Entertainment's CEO and other's in power; many of them were arrested and the company itself soon crumbled and fell apart. No one wanted to take over the ill-fated company and as such, everyone within it was forced to find employment elsewhere.
Min Jae had told the other boys in D-FY about what he had learned about the CEO and other the night he got his proof, but he never told them his plans to make the information known to the general public, and did so without thinking about the consequences his group would end up facing. Before they knew it, D-FY was on their own and at a standstill. Some members wanted the group to try to join with another company, others may have thought they were well known enough by known to self-produce and publicize. Others still might even have thought that the disaster Min Jae had caused was the end of D-FY completely. Unable to come to a group decision and often fighting over what to do, D-FY officially disbanded in the summer of 2014 and went their separate ways. Min Jae didn't let his group falling apart stop him, and swiftly moved on to become an actor as he had taken part in various dramas when the group wasn't promoting. He's now a member of Newsound, but where the other six wound up is all up in the air.
The following members are still needed!
  • Main vocals
  • Lead vocals
  • Main rapper
  • Lead rapper
  • Main dancer
  • <s>Lead dancer/Visual</s> - Hwang Min Jae (Min-J)
  • Sub-vocals/Dancer
I don't really have a preference as far as the ages, which position goes to the leader or maknae of the group, etc. I had it pictured in my head that, because he was only fifteen when he debuted, Min Jae was likely the second youngest of the group, with the maknae likely just about a year younger than him. But otherwise you can do whatever you want for the members' ages! You can use any PBs that you want; I tossed up a picture and gif of Super Junior M only because Donghae is a member of that sub-unit so why not? But feel free to use whoever you'd like, and put them wherever you want them now! Because I'm curious I'd love to hear what you have in mind for them if you plan to take one of the members up. And if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask!

<div class="minj"><div class="hmjbg"><div class="hmjtxt">SUMMARY</div></div></div>
<div class="hwangminjae">

Hwang Min Jae was born into an average family in Gwangju. The middle child in the family, he had an older brother and a younger sister. However, he had no interest in pursuing an "average" life and instead craved a life of fame. As such, when he was twelve he went to Seoul and auditioned for Sae Guk, however he didn't quite make the cut. Not one to give up, he pressed on and found himself accepted into a small company called KISS Entertainment. Min Jae trained there and eventually debuted in 2007 as the lead dancer and visual of a seven-member pop group named D-FY, where he used the stage name Min-J. Though not an instant hit right after their debut, once they had their first comeback their popularity soared and rivaled groups from larger companies. However, when he was twenty-two he discovered from a friend in the company that KISS Entertainment's CEO and other shareholders and higher ups had been using their power against her and other girls within the company. Furious but not one to rush in without thinking, Min Jae developed a plan to catch the CEO red-handed and brought the proof he had gotten in the form of recordings on his phone to the police the day after the recordings were made. However, he didn't stop there and made sure that the CEO and others involved would all lose their jobs by going to the media with what he had learned as well. This resulted in the arrest of the CEO and others, as well as the destruction of the company as no one wanted to take over something with such a negative reputation about it. D-FY fought over what to do next because of Min Jae's actions, though they didn't officially disband until the summer of 2014. Not letting that slow him down, Min Jae decided to pursue solely acting and found himself a place in Newsound from that point onward.
Min Jae is a very logical person. He thinks with his head and doesn't always factor his heart into the equation, but it hasn't steered him wrong yet (unless destroying one's former company can be considered "wrong"). He has a strong sense of tactfulness and can usually look at things from an unbiased point of view, but that doesn't make him unfriendly. He has a very amicable disposition and is known to be approachable to those around him. With a very strong sense of right and wrong, Min Jae isn't the type to just let things slide if they seem unethical or immoral. He's the type to speak his mind when he has an opinion or if something doesn't sit right with him, and is known to be an assertive person. He can also be rather cocky more often than not. He doesn't like to act modest or downplay himself and instead will openly admit to his strengths and has no shame in doing so. He's the type who knows how talented he is and isn't going to let anyone else try to make him out as someone lesser than the greatness he thinks that he is.


<div class="minj"><div class="hmjfriendsbg"><div class="hmjtxt">FRIENDS</div></div></div>
<div class="hwangminjae">

Though he can be a cocky little shithead at times, Min Jae is a very friendly person. In his old company he was known to be one of the most approachable people there, and that hasn't changed at all since joining Newsound (though considering the havoc he caused, it's natural that others might have varying opinions of him now). He's a true friend who's always there to listen to people when needed, though he's known to give a reality check or two if it's entirely necessary. Overall he tries to be more tactful and careful not to hurt others' feelings, but if he needs to be straightforward now and then, so be it.
Yoon Jung Ah - good friend<br>
Lee Sang Kyu - acquaintance<br>
Ahn Tae Hyun - acquaintance


<div class="minj"><div class="hmjenemybg"><div class="hmjtxt">ENEMIES</div></div></div>
<div class="hwangminjae">

Though he's friendly by nature, it's very likely that there are going to be people who don't like Min Jae. The fact that about a year ago he managed to near-singlehandedly destroy his old company seemingly without regard to what it would end up meaning for his and the rest of D-FY's futures can make it look like he's careless. Or at the very least, it may make people more wary about him now possibly. Paired with his overly confident attitude, and of course there are bound to be people who don't like him. While he enjoys the multitudes of fans that his fame has brought him, in general it never bothers him much if some people don't care for him. He'll be nice to them in public when needed, but he won't lie and pretend that they're close if they're not.


<div class="minj"><div class="hmjlovebg"><div class="hmjtxt">LOVE</div></div></div>
<div class="hwangminjae">

Though the public doesn't really know about it, Min Jae has had plenty of girlfriends before. He's always taken care not to give fans or netizens a reason to suspect that he's dating, but that doesn't mean that it never happened. As he tends to be more logical than emotional, he might not seem like the most flirtatious or romantic person around, though that that doesn't mean he's completely incapable of using his heart over his brain. However, he does have a fairly large head; Min Jae's cockiness has given him a sense of expectation that most girls should fall all over themselves for him and likely doesn't always understand the times when that isn't the case.

Min Jae is the type who thinks with his head first and his heart second (or sometimes never). He prides himself on taking most matters from an unbiased point of view, though even when he can't be neutral he always stops to think things through before acting. Most of the time he's aware of the consequences his actions will hold, though of course there are times when that knowledge can slip past even his calculating attention. Along with his logical point of view comes a strong use of tact; he knows how to word things to get his point across without stirring up trouble or causing any sorts of harm or ill will. Does that mean he always uses this gift? No. Sometimes he abandons his tactful wording for a more firm demeanor. But everything he does is always very well thought-out.

Moral sense comes in abundance for him. Min Jae has a very strong sense of right and wrong, and in the past has had a tendency to go to extreme lengths to fix things when he feels a person has been wronged. Considering the way that ends turned out, he's more careful now however he still will do what he can to make things right when it all seems to go awry. If something doesn't sit right with him he won't do it, and will often try to talk other parties out of doing so as well. He's very firm in his stance of what's right and what's wrong, and rarely- if ever- strays from that mindset no matter what's going on.

There are some idols who act overly confident and cocky, but Min Jae isn't one of them. He's talented, he knows he's talented, and he thinks everyone else should know it too. He exudes confidence and has a level of expectation that others around him should all be in awe of him and his abilities. He takes a lot of pride in himself and is never the type to sell himself short (or allow others to do the same). Playing modest in front of the cameras is never something he's been good at. As soon as his popularity skyrocketed, so did his confidence and now he has no shame in admitting that he thinks he's someone spectacular.

Despite his arrogant behavior, Min Jae has always been the approachable type. Just because he's cocky doesn't mean that he's unfriendly or anything of that nature. He's someone many people in the past have easily felt they could turn to and rely on. He's loyal to the people he holds dear to him, and is very friendly to most who know him. Trust is easy to put into him and not something that he does his best not to take advantage of.

Min Jae isn't the type of person to hold his tongue. He's known to make his voice heard as opposed to just sitting idly on the sidelines. When he has an idea he'll speak up about it, and is quick to address issues and problems whenever he sees them arise. Unafraid of confrontation, he's quick to put his foot down and give his thoughts and opinions on serious matters, and often won't back down from his own viewpoint until he gets his point across.

The beginning of Hwang Min Jae's life was average, to say the least. He was born to an average couple of average income, the second of three children with an older brother and a younger sister. His father worked an average office job and his mother was an average middle school teacher. They lived comfortably, not wealthy but far from poor. Everything was simply... Average. Normal. Nothing special or exciting. Which truthfully, Min Jae never saw as a bad thing. He was able to look back at his childhood fondly; there was no tragic back-story or shocking events that left his young life uprooted or forever altered. He had a good home, a good family, and overall a good life. But he wanted more, much more, than just "average".
Min Jae wanted fame. He wanted to make a name for himself, not waste away his days in a cubicle like his father did and like his brother likely would too. And lucky him, being the middle child had it's advantages. He wasn't pushed into being studious and scholarly like his brother, nor was he constantly doted on and spoiled like his little sister (though he supposed that a good portion of her attention had to do with being the only girl in the family alongside being the youngest, but still). Though is parents loved him just as much as they loved his siblings, it was natural that he was overlooked sometimes. And that gave him more freedom to pursue the things <i>he</i> wanted to do as opposed to what they wanted from him.
And above all else, he wanted to become an idol. It was right up his alley - singing, dancing, acting, being on variety shows. And not to mention the hundreds of thousands of adoring fans! It was everything he could dream of and more. So at the young age of twelve, Min Jae auditioned for Sae Guk Productions. Though he didn't quite make the cut, it did little to dissuade him. Setting his sights elsewhere, he auditioned and was accepted into a small company called KISS Entertainment. The company's name was a play off of the founder's initials K.I.S., which in turn stood for Kang In Sik. KISS Entertainment was a company that had been around for several years, and who had created a couple of semi-well known groups, but none of which ever seemed to compete or be on the same level as South Korea's top entertainment companies. All the same, it was where Min Jae found himself and he was plenty happy there. His amiable nature earned him many friends and he was able to expand on his vocal techniques beyond what little he had taught himself in the past. He received not only vocal training of course, but like any other trainee, also learned dancing, the basics of acting, and how to behave on variety programs in order to gain lots of attention from prospective fans.
By the time he was fourteen, he was placed in a group with six other boys. Min Jae took the part of lead dancer and visual in the group, which trained together as a seven-member unit for the next year and a half before making their debut in 2007 when he was fifteen years old. The group, named D-FY, had a decent debut; while they didn't make a huge splash in the industry, the boys' talent and good looks earned them a fair amount of attention. It wasn't until their first comeback seven months later that they finally gained a more significant amount of attention and fame. The came back strong it was hard to miss them; soon enough the D-FY boys were all over the place and had become a household name. They gained more and more popularity by the day, but weren't without any sort of competition. It was that next year when OMEGA debuted their five-member group NTROPY. Though the two groups had very different sounds- NTROPY had more of a hip hop influence while D-FY's sound was solely based in pop music- there were times when the two groups were compared to one another if only due to the popularity that each group received. Personally Min Jae had never cared one way or another about the so-called "rivalry" between the two groups. It was mostly their respective fan bases that were likely behind it all anyways; he never felt particularly competitive when it came to the other group. Then again, he had never really been a competitive person in the first place anyways.
D-FY enjoyed their success immensely. The group had gained KISS Entertainment more recognition and the company soon scrambled to put together their next hit group. When D-FY wasn't busy promoting, Min Jae developed an interest in acting and soon featured in dramas on a somewhat frequent basis over the next several years. Much of his "free time" was still spent within KISS Entertainment however. He liked getting to meet and talk with the company's current trainees, and to lend a hand here or there in dance rehearsals when he good. It was no surprise that he befriended many of the trainees there, though when he was about twenty-one he grew especially close to one of the girls, roughly a year younger than him, who reminded him much of his little sister. She was talented and charming, and he was positive that she would go far when she had her eventual debut. She was like another sister to him and he did his best to look out for her. Min Jae was often so busy with his D-FY activities or the acting roles he acquired, but he always did his best to be there when she needed him.
There were days when he noticed his friend seemed to be at her limit. It came as no surprise to him; he had felt like he was at that point more than once while he had been a trainee. The only strange thing he ever noticed was that often times she and some of the other girls in the company would often grow tense and nervous any time that the company's CEO or other higher-ups came to look in on practices or check their progress. When he was twenty-two, his friend had come him in tears and it was then that he had learned the truth of what was happening within KISS Entertainment. Min Jae discovered through his friend's meltdown that she and other girls in the company had on multiple occasions been subjected to lewd comments and unwanted sexual behavior from the company's CEO and some of the other major shareholders there. The knowledge that such a thing had been going on and he had been completely oblivious to it infuriated Min Jae, but what could he do? The young man had had no actual proof of what was going on aside from what his friend had told him about.
However, Min Jae was nothing if not logical. In no time he came up with a plan to figure out just how to get the proof he needed. The beauty of working in a small company meant it was easy to get a chance to see and talk with said company's CEO. And especially when it also came into consideration that Min Jae was part of the group that had given KISS Entertainment so much exposure over the last seven years, it was really quite simple for him to go and meet with the CEO without any issues. It wasn't uncommon either, the CEO liked to check in with the members of D-FY now and then, and it was no exception with Min Jae. When they met, the two spoke about a few things regarding D-FY, and the CEO asked if Min Jae intended to take part in any new dramas. Things like that. What the CEO was unaware of, was that tucked discreetly in his sweatshirt pocket, the idol had turned on a recording application on his phone and made sure to pick up the conversation between them. When the topic eventually drove off towards other members of the company, Min Jae planted a seed in the CEO's brain by means of commenting on the attractiveness of the girls within KISS, that he was lucky to get to work with so many pretty and talented girls, and so on. After a fake lamentation about not feeling comfortable with the idea of dating within his own company, the CEO all-too eagerly took up the bait he had dropped. He claimed that he had some meetings to attend to soon, but that Min Jae should return that evening and that they might be able to "work something out" to make everyone happy.
So he did just that, and returned to meet with the CEO once again that evening. Just like before, he had the thought to record on his phone anything and everything that was said, just in case. All the while he had to hope that he would be wrong, but what he found when he arrived both was and was not surprising to him. Along with the CEO, he found a couple of the other high ups within the company in the large office as well as a couple of the young women in the company, one of which was his close friend. The way the CEO talked about and offered the girls up to the men in the room sicked Min Jae; he spoke as if they weren't really even people but mere objects meant for men's amusement and nothing more. It was the first, and only, time that Min Jae felt like he wanted to hit someone. He refrained however, but the verbal lashing he gave the CEO might has well have been as bad as a physical strike. The idol swore that he would make sure the older man was removed from KISS Entertainment, and that he and the other men involved in those disgusting activities would be put to justice. Min Jae was unable to stand being there a second longer and had been quick to leave, but not without making sure the girls there came with them. He wasn't about to leave them alone with people who would only cause them harm.
Absolutely disgusted by the things he had learned, Min Jae had been quick to inform the other D-FY members about what they had all been oblivious to all those years. That next morning he had picked up his friend and the two went down to the police station to report what had been going on within KISS Entertainment. But Min Jae refused to stop there. He wanted all of South Korea to be aware of the goings-on within his company, to ensure that the company's CEO and the others involved wouldn't be able to pay off anyone to cover up the things they had done or the people they had harmed. So he contacted one of Seoul's media companies and made time to meet with a reporter, saying there was something important that he wanted to bring to light. And who would want to turn down such a potentially large-scaled story as the one he was claiming to have? That afternoon he and the reporter met and Min Jae told him everything, and assured the reporter that should he need to confirm any facts, the police were already well-aware of what had been happening inside the small entertainment company.
The aftermath of Min Jae's actions was, to put it one way, a media circus. The good news was that at least no one else within the company would be harmed by anyone in positions of power there. The bad news was no one wanted to come near the company with a twenty-foot pole. As soon as word got out that there was a sex abuse scandal within KISS Entertainment, the company's stocks plummeted. People began boycotting events held by the company, and the CEO along with several of the major shareholders and higher ups where arrested. No one was willing to take over the tarnished company and as such, KISS Entertainment soon was liquidated. Min Jae's actions led to the rapid destruction of the very company that had built him up and made he and his group mates into everything that they were now. Most of the artists and trainees within the company found other forms of employment. Some became trainees in other companies, others- like Min Jae's close friend- returned home to their families. But for the seven D-FY boys, things weren't as clear. The group's dancer and visual had managed to single-handedly destroy their now-former company with the way he had brought the company's darker secrets to light. Even if his intentions were good, there was no denying how badly he had screwed his entire group over with the way he handled things.
There was a strong disagreement between the seven boys of what to do next. Some wanted to move as a group to another company- if any others would take them. At least one another had the thought that they could always just self-produce and promote themselves from that point onward. Others seemed convinced that it was the end of the line for D-FY. And it was that last group that ended up being correct; because the boys couldn't come to an agreement of what to do from there, the group dissolved into a number of quarrels before officially disbanding entirely and going their separate ways in the middle of 2014. Disappointed as he was to have lost the rest of his group, Min Jae pushed on. Becoming a soloist had never appealed to him; though he had good enough voice to be one, he was a stronger dancer than a singer and doubted he would make it as far as a soloist as he had as part of a group.
But he had other strengths. The young man had found he greatly enjoyed acting in dramas and movies when his group wasn't actively promoting things. So without hesitation he decided that maybe the time had come to pursue acting only from that point onward. And that was just what he did; after a couple of months he tried his hand at joining one of the larger companies. Luck seemed to have been on his side as Newsound took him in as an actor. Now twenty-three years old, Min Jae has spent the last few months as a member of Newsound though he has yet to officially make his debut as solely an actor. After the trouble he cause in his old company, his intent has been to wait until just the right role make a good enough impact and hopefully separate his image from the damage- however justified it was- he did not too long ago.
