i wish i had more pics of them when they were bbs

wanna one as prom dates

lai guanlin

  • i imagine guanlin to go all out for prom
  • definitely would rent a limo to pick you up in
  • he’d be leaning against the door as he waits for you to come out
  • when he sees your front door opening, he kinda just like looks to the side, with his hands in his pocket 
  • u know, tryna model for you
  • but another reason he’s looking away is because he’s trying not to laugh at himself
  • then he’d finally side glance at ya
  • and he’d smile and say “you look beautiful”
  • in the limo, of course there’s strobe lights, a mini disco ball, and an abundance of cookies to choose from
  • at prom, YOU KNOW this boy would be up and down the dance floor
  • so he might forget you at times
  • but only because he’s caught up in dance battles
  • when a slow song comes on, you and him would be the only ones gettin fkin h y p e d

lee daehwi

  • daehwi is all about the perfect memories
  • plans a pre-prom photoshoot at the beach
  • which lasts like 5 hours
  • but worth it because you ended up having like 53987 photos
  • the corsage he gave you is just STUNNING
  • each part of it symbolizes something in your relationship
  • he actually hands you a beautifully decorated note with what each part means
  • he would never take his eyes off you all night
  • definitely cherishes the slow dances
  • would constantly ask if you’re thirsty/hungry/having fun
  • is proud to have you on his arm so he can show you off to everyone else
  • literally is talking to everyone he can just so others can compliment you
  • and he’d pretend to be all non-chalant but actually
  • hes the happIEST KID EVER

bae jinyoung

  • part of the shy baby club
  • overplans everything
  • like down to the very secOND
  • when plans go awry, he gets SO flustered
  • like he wanted to go the fanciest restaurant in town beforehand
  • however,, the reservation he made somehow wasn’t put into the system correctly so there were no more available tables at that time
  • to make it to prom on time, the closest eating establishment was a small diner
  • he apologizes countlessly but you two end up having so much fun there that you end up being late for prom
  • so late, its practically almost afterprom
  • he apologizes agaiN
  • but you two end up having more fun doing afterprom activities anyways
  • i mean you two end up playing minigolf until 2am

park woojin

  • hello president of shy baby club
  • is so nervous about everything
  • in pre-prom pics you can see the terror in his eyes
  • his hands had been shaking the whole time he held yours
  • is constantly wiping the sweat accumulating in his palms onto his pants
  • also can’t get the corsage to stay pinned
  • so he just ties a strand of your hair onto it to hold it
  • at prom, he loosens up more
  • only because he’s dance battling against guan
  • and suddenly he’s gaining so much more confidence
  • in the middle of a battle, he pulls you in
  • and twirls you around
  • although he began to get more confidence, he was tired of the hustle n bustle of other people so
  • at the end of the night, you two skip afterprom to stay home and have a movie marathon together

park jihoon

  • final member of the shy baby club
  • constantly scratching the back of his head out of nervousness because he’s afraid of making your prom experience anything less than amazing
  • but he’s also gelled his hair to the extreme so he has spikes of hair sticking out the back of his head before prom has actually even started
  • nonetheless, you two have the perfect pictures
  • jihoon would wanna join dance battling with woojin and guanlin
  • but he cant bear to leave your side 
  • so he prompts you to dance with him even if you dont want to
  • ends up making you want to dance more than he does
  • cant wipe the smile from his face for the ENTiRE night
  • keeps reminding you of how much he enjoys prom with you and will constantly thank you because he feels you could always do better and is grateful you’re there with him

kang daniel

  • he’d be waiting for you to be done getting ready
  • so he’s like talking to your parents about how grateful he is for you and wont shut up about you at all
  • once you come down, he’s like 
    • HOLY SHITSIES
    • YOU’RE HOT AS FUCC
    • GAW DAMN
  • totally oblivious to how your parents react because he’s literally hopping to you 
  • he grabs you and spins you around several times
  • he’s dizzy as fuck when he’s driving you to prom and is so happy he can’t stop saying everything that comes to mind
  • so you know, a cop pulls him over for driving all wonky 
  • after the cop deems daniel to not be drunk or anything
  • the cop drives you and daniel to prom because daniel is too happy to even think straight, let alone drive
  • daniel isn’t the master of cliches but this makes prom even more memorable for you

kim jaehwan

  • has the worst luck of the bunch
  • but that just makes prom better
  • “i’m sorry i had to take you in my moms minivan, my car just lost a tire this morning like dude wtf”
  • also forgot to make dinner reservations like you asked
  • “mcdonalds it is bb!”
  • he would drop the nuggets and fries all over the cars seats
  • “i think its still edible”
  • at prom, he’s that toe-tapper-and-head-bobber
  • but doesn’t actually dance
  • but when you convince him
  • he basically turns into your uncle jerry when he’s had 2 jello shots & is at an 80s themed disco party

ong seongwoo

  • loves eyes on him and you
  • so he insists on wearing matching gold sequined dress and suit
  • “we’re gonna shine brighter than that dinky discoball in the gym just u watch bby”
  • and he was right
  • when he stands in front of one of the spotlights
  • he blinds everyone that looks his way
  • dances as silly as he possible can because he loves to see you laughing 
  • during afterprom, he insists only you two do the activities together because now he only craves your eyes on him
  • tries to impress you in every activity
  • but actually kinda fails at everything
  • which u enjoy anyways 

hwang minhyun

  • one of the kindest, sweetest, cheesiest prom dates ever
  • he is graceful in everything and hides his nerves well
  • definitely takes the lead in prom activities
  • like
  • he would be doing his booty dance on the dance floor to lure you out
  • grabs you food and drinks before you even can ask
  • is a god at every afterprom activity
  • BASICALLY
  • THE MOST
  • PERFECT
  • DATE EVER
  • to help minhyun save face as being a graceful god, i’ll just leave out the fact that minhyun only did his booty dance all night, even when he was thrown into a dance battle with woojin and guanlin. :)

ha sungwoon

  • ok but like the. most. perfect. prom. date. ever.
  • super sweet and genuine
  • really isnt nervous at all
  • just is overflowing with confidence because he doesn’t want to overthink anything
  • you’re just super impressed by how sungwoon is super laidback so you don’t feel nervous either
  • .. ok so u know how i said he’s the most perfect date ever?
  • well, you know thiS BOI WOULD BE that one person screaming the lyrics to every song that plays
  • would also remember the dance moves to every song
  • to him, its a performance
  • and. he. kills. it.
  • you and him dance to gg songs flawlessly together and are stared in awe by the other people at prom

yoon jisung

  • only the sweetest prom date you could ever ask for
  • would tear up the moment he saw you in your prom dress
  • he made dinner for you because he wanted it to be more intimate before going to prom
  • also doesn’t really try to dance seriously
  • only dances goofily to try to make you smile and laugh at him
  • would hold your heels when you dance with your friends
  • or like if your feet were hurting at all
  • and when you come back, he’s grabbed all the deserts from the snack table and has them all waiting for you
  • keeps mental notes of how you’re doing
  • so when he sees you’re getting tired
  • he gives you a piggyback ride back to the car
  • once at home he’d massage your sore feet and shoulders to help you fall asleep
teen choice awards

requested: “can you do one where shawn meets y/n backstage or something and shes like shy but interesting at first and occasionally he gets her to sing, she sings a whintey houston-ish song you know a big ballad and he’s blown away and wants to make her famous.”

also requested: “hi bb I love your writings!! Could you please write something where y/n is a famous singer and meets Shawn at the Teen Choice Awards and they hit it off/flirt/exchange numbers? Probably kinda weird but I would love it!!!! xoxo” authors note: i thought i would sorta combine these two and i hope y'all don’t mind. also, this imagine is rather long and it takes a bit of time to get to the point so i apologize. i was just trying to figure everything out and make sure it all made sense. idek.

“Please work.” You mumbled to yourself while messing around with the lens on you camera. For some reason it wouldn’t click right whenever you tried to put it on, and you were terrified at the fact that it could be broken. You worked as a photographer and tonight your job was to take pictures of the celebrities who performed at the Teen Choice Awards. You’ve been photographing moments for as long as you can remember but you’ve never had this big of an opportunity until now. You had already met several celebrities backstage and you were in awe at how humble some of them were, and also how rude some of them were. Everyone was different and it was interesting to see.

“Are you okay?” You heard a voice say and you quickly looked up, taking your glasses off and resting them on your head. You really only needed glasses to see things up close, but whenever you were talking to someone or doing anything else, you didn’t need them, and sometimes they’d give you a headache. Before you could respond, the voice spoke up again.

“Oh cool, what kind of camera is that?” It took you a minute to realize, but once you blinked hard a few times, you finally noticed that Shawn Mendes was talking to you. The Shawn Mendes from Vine, the kid you had a huge crush on when you first discovered him in Magcon.

“Canon 5d mark iii.” You said shyly trying hard to hide your flustered cheeks and pounding heart.

“Cool. My friend is a photographer and he’s actually here taking some pics. I assume that’s what you’re doing too? Oh sorry, I totally forgot to even introduce myself, I’m Shawn.” He smiled wide and stuck out his hand. You awkwardly put down your camera on the nearest table and stood up to shake his hand before saying, “I’m Y/N.”

“So is everything okay? I didn’t mean to eavesdrop but it sounded like you were having some trouble.” Shawn said politely. He was just as sweet as his fanbase always said he was.

“Oh yeah, I’m fine. I was just having trouble putting my lens on. But it’s okay.” You said laughing a little, trying to make things more casual. You always laughed whenever you got nervous. After a few extra minutes of small talk with Shawn, he eventually had to go on stage to perform and you had to be out there too, taking pictures. You got some good shots of several different celebrities so you were proud of yourself. As the evening went on, it got later and you got tired. Your photography instructor told you take however many pictures you wanted, and she didn’t give you any time frames, so you figured you would give yourself a small break, and sit backstage on one of the couches and listen to Ariana Grande’s performance. She sang her powerful song Dangerous Woman which you loved. Ariana’s voice was strong and beautiful and you always wished you could sing something like that. After you sang along to Ariana’s performance, you decided to sing the song again but by yourself since it seemed that no one was around to hear your mediocre singing voice.

“Makessss me feel like a dangerous wommannn.” You flipped through snapchat stories on your phone as you belted out the rest of her song. You sang the last line, and your heart jumped out of your chest when all of a sudden you heard someone clapping. You almost dropped your phone.

“Sorry, I didn’t mean to scare you. But that was incredible Y/N!” It was Shawn. Shawn Mendes was talking to you again. You sat there wide eyed, with bright red cheeks feeling a bit embarrassed about the fact that he just heard you sing, but you also felt slightly confused about the fact that he said it was incredible. You never thought your voice was really any good. You sang in choirs before, and you sing in the shower and in the car, but you always looked at singing as a hobby. You wished for it to be something more, but that never seemed realistic to you.

“Uh, thank you!” You said with a small smile, and putting your phone in your back pocket.

“That voice of yours deserves to be on the radio or something, seriously. How long have you been singing?” Shawn walked over, and sat down next to you on the couch.

“I don’t know, for as long as I can remember?” You laughed shyly, and looked at him, still wondering why he even thought you sounded good. Was he messing with you? Were you being pranked?

“You shouldn’t be sitting on a couch backstage, you should be performing, on stage.” Shawn was sitting rather close to you, and his voice was soft. He sounded genuine. You were in shock. Shawn Mendes, someone you thought had the voice of an angel, was saying that you had a good voice. And you didn’t know what to say, so you just looked down and smiled, trying to remain as humble as possible.

Two years later

You played with the cord of the microphone as you tried to keep a straight face, while being interviewed backstage at the Teen Choice Awards. “You’ve gotten quite popular so quickly, do you ever miss when you weren’t famous?” The woman said to you with a smile on her face.

“Of course, but I love this job. I’m grateful either way.” You said simply. After a few more questions, you finally finished the interview. You sat backstage while people reapplied makeup, and you chatted with whoever else was getting their makeup done. Several people congratulated you on your new album that was just released, and you thanked them. Your life has drastically changed after your old friend Shawn Mendes had convinced you to post a over on YouTube. After you did, he shouted you out, causing you to gain thousands of followers and soon enough you were signed. But that was two years ago. You and Shawn talked as friends for maybe 6 months and then stopped. You don’t know why but it just happened. Both of your lives were busy, so you didn’t really let it bother you. Just as you were thinking of someone you haven’t spoken to for so long, Shawn walked into the room backstage. You pretended not to notice by looking at yourself in the mirror, fixing any mistakes your makeup artists made. You weren’t a makeup expert but sometimes your makeup artist didn’t know what looked good on you.

“Y/N?” You heard him. Shawn. You saw him now too. You saw him behind you in the reflection of the mirror and you quickly turned around.

“Shawn!” You said kindly giving him an awkward hug.

“It’s been so long. How are you? Congrats on your album by the way.” He scratched the back of his neck as he spoke.

“Thank you! And I’m great, how are you?”

You remembered very well when you met Shawn two years ago, at this exact place. It was crazy how you went from taking pictures of celebrities, to actually becoming a celebrity and now you watched people take pictures of you. You and Shawn talked for about 20 minutes or so. The awards show was technically over and you were supposed to be attending an afterparty but instead you were here talking with Shawn. You both caught up on each other’s lives and eventually you exchanged numbers. You had his number from two years ago, but apparently it was changed.

“I’m sorry for not talking to you for so long. I’m glad we caught up though, and I’d love to take this conversation further sometime, somewhere else.” Shawn’s cheeks were a pretty pink and it made you smile. Was he asking you on a date?

“Like.. Where?” You teased him and laughed, titling your head.

“You ever been to that coffee shop downtown?”

“I haven’t actually.” And so Shawn and you skipped the afterparty and went on a simple date to the coffee shop, and talked for the rest of the night.

Soooo thank you all who wished me a great time in my previous pic about the email.
I always check who reblogs and read the tags xD I loved them all.
But @aquacadetrc put something in the tags that I was instantly interested in.

That he gives good hugs.

I can confirm this (like, 100%) xD I gave the guy like, 3 hugs. Two when I took pictures with him, and we were talking to him before we left, and when we stood up to leave, he stood up and said “hey, wait, lemme get another hug”.
Needless to say I haven’t stopped smiling since we first met him.
My heart was pounding and I want to to back and just sit with him again.
He’s so sweet and kind, and I swear this man is so beautiful.
I’ve never known anyone more beautiful than him honestly.
Plus I felt more relaxed talking to him (despite the inner fangirl) than me talking to most people at school.
:) I had a wonderful time. Thanks to all who wished I had one! I definitely did!
I srsly just wanted to stay there forever and hug him ❤

Why the heck hasn’t Bellarke gotten together yet, a Meta.

So here’s a meta I never thought I would write, cause everyone is always so caught up on the “behind the scenes” (aka jason, eliza, etc interviews)that they miss what the show is saying (screaming)

And to prove I’m not crazy, here is the reason why i’m writing this in the first place:

So there you go, @ivthegreatest​, as promised this meta is for you (i LOVE YOU for questioning this).

So without further ado, let’s discuss Bellarke’s development and their obstacles.

BIGBANG

Hi VIP world. I am Chantal from the Netherlands. This year I graduated from college and my parents generously gave me a 1-week vacation in Seoul. I admit Big Bang, and my bias Seungri, is instrumental in my choice of destination. Sorry for this long fan account, but I promise you this is juicy.

It’s my luck that my Polish friend is currently an English major in Seoul NU. We share a common love for BB and we spent a great deal of my trip hanging out with super duper hardcore VIPS. My friend, who’s somewhat wild, made friends with official VIPs after she attended the Dream Concert back in 2009. I believe they are the type of fans Jaejoong rants about because they are sort of stalkerish. I planned my Seoul trip very well, and communicated with a small group of Korean BB fans prior to my trip. 

So we spent 4 days as undercover/stalker/spy fans because we hung around YGE and spied the members’ cars to wherever they went to. Yes. I became a sasaeng along with 4 Korean teens and 2 unnies (they were 25 yrs old and have been fans since 06). They were official VIPs and have patterned their schedule with pretty much all their free time spent on fanning over the boys, staking out in YGE, etc. They even told me I should have went on March and April so that I could have maximized my stalker plans.

To organize this, I divided my account in the following: stalking YGE; bars in Hongdae ang Kangnam: Korean VIP insider info on BB. YES, I WAS ELBOW TO ELBOW WITH THREE MEMBERS, BREATHING THE SAME AIR, DANCING TO THE SAME MUSIC, DRINKING THE SAME ALCOHOL in the same bars.

Stalking YGE

YGE is not so big. Contrary to the pics, I was pretty surprised to see that it wasn’t as big as I expected. However the security is really strict because there are 2 men on the look out almost all the time. We staked out about 5-7 meters away from the entrance. At least 10 other fans were doing the same thing we did in all those days, and we were a big group. You see cars come and go all the time, but rarely will you get a glimpse of YGE stars. However we were really lucky because in the four days that we hung around, we saw at least 1 BB member. 

On the first day we saw the girl from SG in a black van. She’s not so pretty, but really sexy. At around 9 Youngbae came with his manager! He’s really short! I think I was as tall as his chin, and I am only 63 inches tall. But he was so fashionable that morning, like he had a gig or something. He wasn’t very friendly to the fans but he smiled. He looked tired. I was content just looking at him, but damn the Korean fans are so aggressive I tell you. They all surrounded him and shouted like crazy it wasn’t even funny. My friend and I stayed behind cuz we didn’t know how to react. After about ten mins or so, a couple of them got signatures and they shouted like crazy for YB that the security reprimanded the crowd.

The next morning we staked out the same time, and we arrived the same time as Youngbae and Jiyong. They were in a white car, sedan style and Jiyong was driving. The fans went crazy and my friend and I also joined them. However both of them were not in the mood and they didn’t even look at us. If I was a new person I would have been offended because the looks on their faces were kind of…. disgusted? But just like the Korean fans, I understood. I expected some of them to talk badly or something, but damn their devotion and loyalty was no joke. It’s like they knew of the moods of the boys. Anyway, we waited for another three hours and lo and behold, Ji and TOP and YB went out to ride a black van. It was all so fast all we could do was call their name. YB waved at us, and I’d like to believe he wanted to be nicer from his attitude earlier. GD was still smug and frowning. Sadly the Koreans said that GD was naturally snob. If he was friendlier, they would have been more surprised. I asked if they found it unappealing or ugly, but they said that was Jiyong’s charm. They said GD was the cold guy who everyone likes, but those who don’t will think why they like him for being rude. I didn’t get it at that time, but my interpretation was GD was the kind of college heartthrob who didn’t give a john tesh if people like him etc. And the Koreans are crazy about him for this attitude. Anyway, the k-fans mobbed the van like crazy to get their attention! Since my friend and I were the odd ones out, we chickened out again. Luckily, TOP waved his hand, and magically they stopped surrounding the van. It’s like they were waiting for even the slightest attention. CRAZY!

On the third day, we were fresh from our night out in Hongdae (where we saw Ji, TOP and Panda), so we stalked out later. We chose to go to YG at 4-7 pm so we can go straight to Kangnam. Again, we saw GD and he was riding a small black car, if I’m not mistaken it was a Chrysler because of the winged logo. It was different from the white car he was driving yesterday. Anyway, like usual he snobbed the fans but some of them surrounded his car anyway. He was stuck so he waved for security, pulled the window, and he signed some shirts and other stuffs but he didn’t even smile. But mind you, the girls still cried (one teenager was really crying so much). I was starting to get pissed at Jiyong because he was so unfriendly, and the Korean unnies told us GD changed over the years. They said that back then, GD was very sweet and endearing, but they observed that after his solo album, GD became distant and cold. From there I understood. I don’t regard myself as an expert, but I just graduated with a degree in Psychology and I can see through what the fans told us. Of course I’m not saying it’s true, but from their stories, it seemed GD became really aloof and quiet to the fans after all his controversies in 2009. He mentioned in one interview that after all the issues from his solo album, he learned to keep his head down right? Poor Jiyong. That day we also saw Psy and Kang Hyejung in their respective vans. However, I don’t really know them so I can’t say anything. Some fans were rudely calling Psy’s name though, he waved at us, and you can tell he has a kind nature because of his very kind face.

On the fourth day, we stalked out again in the morning and I didn’t sleep properly. I wish I did because that was the day when I finally got face-to-face with SEUNGRI! In the two past nights we stalked the boys in night clubs, I only saw Seungri from a distance of about 10 meters or so. BUT THIS TIME I GOT SO CLOSE! It was around 10 or so, I wasn’t sure, when a black car arrived (all boys have black cars according to the Korean fans. YB’s Mercedes, GD’s Chrysler, Dae’s Audi were black, and even TOP’s Hyundai was also black). GD also had another white luxury car which was either Bentley or Chrysler, didn’t get to confirm. Ri was in a black sedan type Jaguar. I thought it would be Teddy or maybe YG himself because it was so flashy. BUT IT WAS PANDA! He’s driving a black Jaguar! WE MOBBED HIM AND I DIDN’T EVEN THINK TWICE! He got out of the car and it was like a Valet or something. HE STAYED! Unlike GD, Seungri was soooooooooooo warm and so close and so happy and so charming and so… maybe it’s my bias talking. SORRY! In the past three days I stopped myself from attacking them, but this time I didn’t! I RAN TOWARDS HIM LIKE THE OTHERS! Maybe because of my camera, or my caucasian features, but Panda said “No pictures please, no no no no. Okay?” HE WAS SOOOO CUTE! I said “Sure, sure, but please sign this, I’m from the Netherlands!” “Ooh Netherlands. Waaaaaah. So beautiful.” I DIDN’T KNOW IF HE WAS SAYING THAT TO ME OR MY COUNTRY O MY john teshING GLORY! He signed my hanky and my notebook. He’s soooooo nice! He signed as much as he could. And at that moment I just stared at him and smiled and I thought to myself maybe I am a really good person for being able to have met them like this. Oh also we saw Psy again and this time he was driving.

I met Seungri 2x, G-Dragon 4 john teshing times, TOP 3x, and YB 2x. I’m so sad I didn’t get to see Daesung. But like Korean fans said, Dae was “hiding.” Yup, my friend said that their exact words translated were “hiding” and “making peace.” I interpreted that Dae was making amends and was embarrassed to look at the fans. Poor Daesung. I admit it made me a little sad that the boys (esp. GD) were having a little too much fun in bars, while Dae was “making peace.” But they have a life. More on that later.

Oh wait, my mind is a scramble right now, so allow me to give their physical impressions on me now before I blab more later.

TOP: Tall, fashionable, FAIR SKINNED AND SMOOTH! and sooooooooooooooo GOOD LOOKING EVEN FROM 5 meters away!

YB: Short and really muscular. However, he’s not scary muscular. He was pretty small-framed and really little.

GD: Extremely good-lookin, and he’s not even my bias. His skin is also smooth and quite silky (or oily?) I don’t know, it shined from smoothness, if that’s possible. AND HE IS RIDICULOUSLY EXTREMELY FASHIONABLE from head to toe. Of the five, he’s the one who screams “celebrity.” OH DID I MENTION HE SMELLS SOOOOOOOOOOOO FREAKING GOOD. It’s a mixture of perfume, smoke and alcohol. Sorry, GD drinks. BIG TIME.

Seungri: SO john teshING HANDSOME! I can’t even. The cameras don’t do him any justice at all! He’s not too small like YB, but not too tall. I think I was on his neck? HIS SMILE AND EYES ARE KILLER I CAN DIE FROM HAPPINESS NOW!



Night Out in Seoul

Okay, here’s were it gets dirty. The following posts contain lots of following around, stalking etc. The K-fans got an insider info that Seungri was going to NB, a YG-family bar. One of the K-fans had a connection (she was 32 years old and still likes BB) so it was easier to enter. It was so expensive to survive the night. SO PRICY IT TOOK MY DAILY SAVINGS FOR THAT TRIP! And it was the weekend! Okay, so the Koreans knew that NB was packed on a Friday night so they told us that the best way to make sure we got close to the boys was to stalk them from YGE or the apartment or in some places. We divided into groups. We stalked the YGE building which we just left about 5 hours prior. Man in that 5 hours all I did was visit Lotte. So we were not lucky because we waited outside YGE until 7 but they weren’t there. They weren’t in the dorm either. But some K-fans tipped that Ri left the university at 7:30 with friends. So that group in Chungang was the one who stalked Ri’s cars. We got to Hongdae at 8 and entered at 9. The Chungang group wasn’t there yet, so maybe Ri wasn’t there too! 

In NB, it was so difficult to enter. They had ID system, security check etc. Wow. NB cost 15000 won for entrance alone! And drinks inside were expensive. But it was a good bar with good music and party people. Didn’t expect Koreans to be this party ready! There were hundreds of people inside, and it got so difficult to look for celebs. Koreans said the celebs would usually wear clothes that hid their faces, but they said that JYP and some rappers and idols also frequented the place. I was on the look out for any 2PM or Beast members, but I couldn’t find any because it was so packed with people! Anyway, there was a tunnel at the back where VIP (as in important people) enter, and the Koreans were tipped that a huge number of celebs were entering. It was heavily guarded but you could definitely see who was entering.

The next minutes would be the most shocking moments of my life. First I saw was a very familiar tall man who was wearing shades and scarf on the neck. MOTHERjohn teshING LORD IT WAS CHANSUNG OF 2PM! Oh my lord. Instead of partying I kept my eye on Chansung but he entered a VIP room somewhere on the second floor. I don’t know. I lost him! john tesh! Anyway, if Chansung was seen I was positive I could see Seungri too! Damn what was taking him so long. So the hours went and I didn’t see anyone, but the Koreans said that some famous rappers also entered the place. What surprised me was how no one went crazy like a wild fan upon seeing some stars. It’s like a normal place where those celebs were comfortable. I guess bars are really like that there in Seoul. Anyway I had the dance of my life when the fans went crazy because someone came again. It was a very pretty girl in some shiny jeggings and awesome hat, the kind of Lady Gaga hat that covers half your face. I didn’t recognize her, but the boys were going crazy. She was accompanied by three other fashionable girls, and I thought maybe it was 2NE1? Or maybe miss A because there were four of them. Damn even I knew that was too good to be true. We walked closer and the Korean fans were murmuring like crazy, and I only understood that when my friend went crazy. My friend would only shout for a female idol if it was SNSD. AND BAM! She said it was Yuri! john tesh MY LIFE. I was already going crazy from knowing that 2 Korean idols were in the same bar. I asked if it was Yuri with other SNSD members, but no, they said it was just Yuri with some friends. I lost her again, john tesh. She went to the second floor. I was always on the look out on the second floor because celebs were there.

Okay so the Chungang group called us and said they lost Seungri’s car and that they couldn’t enter because the club was packed. Poor them. If I was with them I wouldn’t have entered. Okay I don’t know how to write it anymore. My mind is scrambling. Anyway, lots of other celebs came according to the K-fans, and I didn’t even know most of them. I didn’t see them, but the Koreans said it was Heechul and some other idols. I didn’t know who, but I just knew it was Heechul. DIDN’T SEE THEM OKAY, just writing what the fans said.

The night went on, and I think it was already past midnight when GOD HAVE MERCY BIG BANG CAME. It was just GDTOPSEUNGRI. They entered the front door like ordinary people, not at the back like Yuri and Chansung. The Koreans said BB members are everyday sight in NB and Hongdae, so there was really no point in entering the backdoor. GDTOP loved to party! And you can see GD moving to the music. The Koreans stopped us from mobbing them (which was ironic since they were very pushy in our YGE stakeouts). They said NB was a YG-club, and mobbing BB may get us thrown out. Anyway, I was surprised to hear foreign music, mostly heavy-based hip hop, which GD rapped into. He was so into it. Unlike the moody and reserved Gdragon from the YGE bldg during mornings, club Jiyong was energetic and fun. TOP, like always, was calm and swagger. Like the other celebs they went to the second floor, and that’s when we decided to shell out some more money just so we can enter the second floor. 

The second floor was mostly social people with drinks and near the bar. YOU COULD TELL THERE WERE RICH PEOPLE IN THERE! And GOD HAVE MERCY THERE WAS A BAR! I guess we got it easier because we were foreigners, because they were usually strict in letting ordinary-looking Koreans. Okay, like the ground floor NB2’s second floor was also packed, but with younger, less energetic crowd. THEN I SAW THEM! They weren’t in a room yet, SR was ordering drinks in the bar. I wanted to run to him but the bar was packed! I couldn’t. GD and TOP entered the VIP room, and yes, TOP WAS SMOKING. 

Okay, I don’t know how to put it in words so I’ll just summarize.

- Seungri dancing with girls (MINDjohn teshED)

- Gdragon drinking and drinking and drinking and smoking and drinking

- Seungri and Chansung talking in the bar like close friends. YES, close friends

- TOP dancing animatedly with boys, he never went close to girls, but there were extremely pretty girls entering and leaving their VIP room

- SEUNGRI AND YURI AND CHANSUNG TOASTING LIKE CLOSE FRIENDS. I AM NOT LYING!

- GD coming out of the VIP room with his hands on a girl’s shoulder, and SMOKING.

- GD dancing and singing to 2012

- GD passing by me to go to the wash area, and I SMELLED HIM! HE REEKED OF NICOTINE, but damn there was that mix of perfume. 

- GD and Yuri greet each other

- Big group cheers with those idols, Yuri and TOP seemed familiar with each other IDK

- Heechul’s group leaving at around 2, I saw that Beast guy and some idol girl (the fans said it was a miss A member, they were speaking in Korean I didn’t understand) and his group did this manly arm and hand and back thing with TOP and Ri and Chansung inside the bar. TOP and Heechul seemed friendly. Heechul and Yuri laughed. I don’t know.

- All night Chansung and Seungri were together with some guys. The others weren’t cute.

- GD became hyper at around 3 and danced with all girls, even Yuri. Seungri was laughing maniacally

- I don’t know where TOP disappeared to, but the last time I saw him he was holding a beer.

We left the scene at 4 am and they were still there, but we were so tired and so tipsy already. I think I spent about $100 the whole night, it was crazy. I COULDN’T BELIEVE THAT I SAW THREE BB MEMBERS PARTYING IT UP LIKE THERE WAS TOMORROW IN THAT NOISY BASEMENT BAR! GOD DID I SAVE THE WORLD IN MY YESTERLIFE?!?!?!

Next stop was M2 techno club in Kangnam. We had insider stalker information that some members would drop by the district on Saturday night. There was debate among Koreans on which club in Kangnam, since there was another NB club there, then there’s the famous Qvo club. It was around 7pm when some unnies confirmed that it would be M2. Okay so I’m getting tired so I’ll just summarize the 2nd night life

- Only GDTOP came with a huge group of fashionable boys, with some oldies (K-fans said it was Teddy and Kush, but I didn’t see, so I’m just writing what they told me). Around 3 – 5 other friends were tall and good looking with celebrity aura, didn’t know them

- That night, there were lots of underground rappers in M2. Koreans said the Cho guy was there, as well as the 2 supreme team guys, and I THINK I saw Simone? Was it Simone or Simon? I think I saw him. He’s good looking in person. No interaction with YG fam though.

- GDTOP was in a public space group table, not a VIP room. It must be a VIP table because they were being served, they didn’t order in the bar

- Lots of smoking and drinking

- Lots of GDTOP moments, THEY ARE CLOSE, CLOSE, CLOSE

- HOLY MOLY GDRAGON WAS GETTING HOT AND SEXY WITH THIS KOREAN GIRL WITH A FOREIGN MIX. NAUGHTY! No kissing, just dancing and lots of whispering and flirting.

- TOP loved beer. He drank beer most of the time

- One of their fashionable friend was making out with a girl.

- Their table requested some English songs, and the DJ dedicated it to them and they all went WOOOOOH and toasted and drank like they were in a contest. I’m telling you TOP was wasted!

- GDTOP dancing in the middle with girls and boys, they were really in with the party crowd.

We left early this time because M2 was so jampacked and reeked of alcohol and cigarette that I somehow got sick towards the end. The music was not base-heavy, but percussion heavy so I was so deaf by 2am. So yeah. When we left, GD was still with girls, TOP in the dancefloor, and their group still enjoying the night scene.


It was like a dream. I didn’t expect to actually be able to see all the boys, and more so Gdragon, in the flesh. Anyway. I’m tired and there are still lots of things to be said.

* Unlike GD, TOP is not too close with girls, but when he gets serious, he is. There were sightings of TOP with just one girl in multiple night scenes. He’s had 5 girls so far according to stalker information

* TOP loves shopping around in public places

* TOP is close with Heechul and Siwon of SuJu, Nich of 2PM, Jaejoong, Hyungjoon, Yunho and Hyunseung.

* TOP is very very close to Park Bom, Gummy, Park Hanbyul, the girl from SG, and the partner of Junpyo. He also shares a relative closeness to the dancers of YGE.

* During concerts, Taeyang and Seungri would always greet some fans in the backstage.

* In live broadcasts, Seungri would usually give out freebies for VIPS.

* Korean fans said that in Korea, YGE is hardcore. I said that some international fans think of YGE as trying hard and poser, but they said that in the underground scene, NB and YG is notorious. They even said that “NB defines Seoul’s night life. YG Entertainment, its artists and its music is hardcore.” Apparently, almost all “underground idol rappers” have once started their gigs in NB1, NB2, and NB Gangnam.

* VIP, as a fandom, isn’t united. They said that they act mostly on their own, or in small groups, unlike SM fans who supports in bulk.

* Big Bang has lost current popularity, but they are a household name in South Korea. Seoul’s rich and elite, THEIR WORDS NOT MINE, only know Big Bang when you ask them about Korean singers. 

* In 2008, even the poor and the middle class liked Big Bang. But BB’s difference from other popular idols is that you can also make rich socialites buy their albums without shame. Korean VIPS pride themselves that Big Bang transcends the income inequality of fans and supporters.

* Korean VIPS said that their fandom is relatively smaller and less active than other fandoms, so most of BB sales are divided from fandom and casual fans. South Korea supports Big Bang. And most especially, G-Dragon.

* Korean VIPS said that Big Bang are unlike other idols. They are not showy with fans, they don’t do fan meets, YGE has long forgotten about organizing the official fandom, but multitudes of VIPS still stick to Big Bang in the quiet.

Okay, I wrote out pretty much all I took note of and remember. These are all first hand experiences and insider information from Korean VIPs/stalker fans. This took me all night to make so I hope you guys appreciate it. Now I know I may come of as too know-it-all, but I just got lucky in meeting hardcore Korean Big Bang fans. Thank you. BIG BANG IS LOVE!

I knew Zach & Frankie had been talking on the phone since last week when Amanda said she would be hanging with them this weekend to watch BB & dine tonight.

(Opinion post)

After listening to the interview I honestly side eyed at the same few  people who always flip flop on everything for 0 reason. Fans from all sides want Zach to force himself to go on social media to talk on social media or to  Frankie. NO. He’s already talking on the phone with Frankie. Have y'all not seen him preparing himself by deleting all of those UF Frat boys/sorority girls/acquaintances among others from his instagram & unfollowing more people on twitter? He’s trying to adjust. THIS PART IS VERY IMPORTANT: Frankie is now in his life, someone who is a “celeb”, and that person’s sibling happens to be Ariana Grande (VMA/American Music Award winning artist) aka possibly one of the most marketable MUSIC ARTIST/NAMES in the music industry atm. This isn’t a sibling who won some damn random singing competition & became irrelevant. That ladies & gentleman is pressure to not fuck it up. Haters & Lovers alike know how much Zach cares for Frankie and he’s gonna do what he can to not fuck that up. Notice how quiet his family has been and did that 180 before last week and started defending Frankie? Exactly. I respect & love Zach’s family now btw because they have been great for the past two weeks.  Zach has already gotten on and liked pics of him & Frankie together especially the one where Frankie said on twitter “This man is MY everything where as the instagram caption on the other hand has the two male couple emoji with the heart and said  "he makes me so happy" (proving Zach is by no means uncomfortable but he is most likely feeling pressure to adjust when you have crazies attacking Frankie on Zach’s social media accounts every time a post is done, on current pics, or just general tweets. Frankie is always expressing his love for Zach on social media because that’s him. Zach is gonna be vocal to Frankie and only to Frankie off social media. People have to respect the "bond” that Zach & Frankie have. Zach has to adjust at his own pace. And if you think for a second that Zach hasn’t been looking at social media and seeing the tweets and stuff y'all are crazy. Dude has for sure probably been looking through Frankie’s instagram pics/tweets / Ari’s pics/tweets/ Frankie’s youtube videos and has seen hate from people. It must be surreal for him because you have a bond that can’t be “labeled” with Frankie and have these two celebs in your life now? Adjusting must be hard for him because he’s probably afraid he could mess it up by doing the wrong thing. Shit is cray on social media btw. Fans need to stop tweeting/instagraming him hate about Frankie *shakes head*.

I want to note a few things I saw because this is important.
