::emotionally charged fangirl rant ahead::
Remember this video, Babyz?
▪TfuckingS Ent pulled Daehyun from the hospital and made him perform live. He slayed. He fucking slayed but you can clearly see how sick he was.
▪You can clearly see, hear, and feel Yongguk’s anger bleeding through his rap and movements. Look at him. He may be intense but never like this. Who can blame him, though? When you see your brother and ward almost killing himself for what they do.
▪You can see them so freaking exhausted because they were tossed around without enough break. 9 comebacks in 2012 and 7 comebacks in 2013. World Tour. 2-3 comebacks in not even half of 2014. To think that they weren’t legally and humanely compensated.
▪Himchan is too sick to perform. He tried. Gods, he tried but as willing his spirit was, his body got too weak.
▪Even Babyz watching them this time knew something was wrong and you can see on their faces the concern for the boys.
I go back to this whenever I read somewhere that BAP has lost their touch and how they’ll never get the popularity they were heading towards.
Tbh, I’m somehow thankful that they didn’t. Because if the payoff for popularity is this, the fucking inhumane treatment of TS to my babies, then I’d rather see them fall into oblivion. And they, all 6 of them, thought the same. Popularity isn’t worth it if they fucking destroy themselves. It just isn’t.
Besides, they may not be so big now, but the fact that they are still selling both locally and internationally, win awards for music and business locally and internationally, hold concerts and world tour in places not usually reached by KPOP (hi Europe!), get sponsorship from big companies and still hold strong as a brand, and the group’s Bang Yongguk still maintain the title as one of the most well respected idol leader/producer/song writer/lyricist in kpop… I’ll say they are one of the top groups out there (I may be a bit biased there lol)
They deserve so much more but I’m gonna bet that a lot of Babyz prefer them bonded and together and healthy and happy and relevant enough rather than downtrodden and broken and sick and sad and too popular.
That’s it. Was just having too much BAP feels because of the upcoming comeback. Lol
