“All of this content is what I certainly heard from keeping in touch with the members and their parents. I was also patient up until now and because I couldn’t just sit back and watch, I am posting this. To the fans who care about BAP like me, please trust and support them until the end.
First off, Dispatch reported the situation the most accurately [among reports] and throughout their promotions, I didn’t say a word to not cause damage to the team, but now I have to speak up.
[B.A.P] didn’t even request a financial statement last year, but only asked that the details of the financial statement be shown to them, but even then, it was not properly shown to them. They only handed out the sum table and told them to only read it at that place and time so how can the parents look at that and accept it? They saw that the financial statement came out in the red without any proper explanation, so of course from the parents’ perspective, it is a situation which cannot be understood.
[B.A.P] received an official break for the first time this year. Before that, all they did was get 1 or 2 days about 2 times when they were let out of the agency by the head of department and manager. What is really a shame about that official break itself is that when it was all about to fall apart with a clash with the parents this year, the agency stopped taking proper care of [B.A.P] to the point that one can only think that [the agency] was trying to get them to slip up so that it would be advantageous to them if a lawsuit were to occur and waiting for them to get involved in a mishap that would be a violation of the kids’ contract by cancelling their schedules and quickly grabbing [schedules] again…
The same people who kept a close eye on them even when they were going to the convenience store in front of the agency headquarters sure have gotten nicer [sarcasm]. Even if they contact [others] through KakaoTalk or FaceTime on their iPads, just in case they might get caught during an inspection [of their devices], they would always delete their entries. They are kids who’ve memorized their friends, teachers, and parents’ numbers.
[The agency] didn’t allow them to meet up with their parents at first, but later when they were in a meeting with the CEO, the CEO cursed out and yelled. But isn’t it only natural that the parents, who trusted the CEO and put their kids under his care, would be worried if the CEO is acting like that to their kids who they can’t see often? For 3 years, [the agency] took away their cellphones to sever ties with the outside world. Even when they came to their hometowns for a fan meeting, they weren’t allowed to see their parents for more than 10 minutes even when it was obvious that they didn’t have any other schedules. But still, they wouldn’t allow them to see their parents who came from far away. And without not even one official break, they lived under the manager’s control. [The agency] pressured the kid, who went to a hospital to receive treatment due to physical and mental exhaustion, to carry out his schedule.
[Daehyun] told me and his parents that the manager would coerce him, saying that if he runs away to his parents, they’ll file a damage suit. I read that the parents covered the hospital fees in an article. Not only did the parents cover the hospital fees, but since they don’t have an income, all of the expenses involving their personal things from their trainee period up until now were covered by the parents’ [credit] cards. Even when the parents said let’s talk to the agency multiple times, the members said to trust [the agency] and that they only need to work hard in doing music and stopped their parents, never complaining once and consistently carrying out their activities.
I don’t care if this post that I wrote gets moved to somewhere else. I actually wish that this spreads so that many people may know. I am determined to fight for and alongside Daehyun, I can’t get in contact with the members currently, but I showed this to their parents first and posted it after receiving their permission.
Also, I did not post this lightheartedly.”
