We should not forget this...

Remember? This is one of their last peformances (maybe the last??) before filling lawsuit against TS…

You see that? They were tired, Himchan didn’t feel well but still had to sing in backstage… see Daehyun’s hand on thumbnail? He was dragged on stage straight from hospital… you see how unhealthy and tired he was… you see frustration on Yongguk’s face and how angrily he rapped (I can’t imagine how angry and frustrated must’ve felt)… You see how they can’t look straight to the audience… It still breaks my heart T_T

And still… despite this fact they give their everything there… they sang it live, not just lipsyncing… they danced… and audience was still hyped… and I can’t help it but be angry to TS… when you hear audience… that year they finally won first show… they started to getting more and more attention… and if it wasn’t because of TS and how they treated them I think that they will be among top groups…

But every bad thing is good for something… I am still doubtful towards TS, but I see them more happier than before, they are just so grateful to BABYz… I can’t think of other group which is so much grateful to their fans and show that much of affection towards them through social media and so on… I was happy when Yongguk was diagnosed with panic disorder and they let him rest, even though it was before their comeback… it look that TS learned some lesson and are more considerate… they know that they can’t screw it again…

So B.A.P maybe lost their popularity which was growing during their best/worst year, but seeing them right now… I have to say I don’t mind… they are still getting new fans (especially after Skydive), they get so many steges during two gayos… and I just hope that 2017 will be like the last year or maybe even better for them… but we really shouldn’t forget this performance and video!!!

Sometimes we forget idols have feelings too. They experiment joy, sadness, despair, anxiety, angriness. Sometimes we forget they are humans too, they get sick, they feel pain. So I hope, as I have seen so far, we all can be understanding on Yongguk’s situation. I hope no one makes him feel like he’s making the wrong desicion by taking care of his health before anything else.

Get well soon, our leader, we will be waiting for you. [insp]

[Article] Is TS to blame why BAP is not as big in K-pop?

Highlights of the truths laid down in this article include:

“B.A.P. is able to change and adjust to more than one dramatic style”

“Now B.A.P. has come back with ‘Wake Me Up,’ a title track song that is far more sociologically driven than any other song I have ever heard in K-pop. They are unafraid to perform about topics and issues that would be “unpopular” in K-pop but once again, it reaches out to a more international fan base as it touches their hearts and their minds.”

“So what happened that prevented B.A.P. from becoming big? I believe it is TS Entertainment.”

“In the case of B.A.P., TS Entertainment had ‘clauses that violate civil rights and go against what is outlined in the Fair Trade Commission.’ Not only that, the distribution of profit was unfair as it was stated that since their debut, B.A.P. made over $9 million, but only gave each member a measly $16,000. That is not even minimum wage!”

“Sadly, a whole year of no promotions, no music, no fan interaction hurt B.A.P. As for their reconciliation with TS Entertainment, K-pop fans were happy but cautious. It is possible that TS Entertainment would backstab B.A.P. and go back to their old ways that drove the wedge between musical artists and agency in the first place.”

“K-pop fans got to listen to some of the most entertaining and innovative music they have ever made..touching on subjects with a deeper meaning, we can only wonder how B.A.P. will continue to grow. For me, I will say just one to two more years. Give B.A.P. just that amount of time and they’ll be big if TS Entertainment doesn’t screw them over again.”
