description: It was everything, from his tattoos, to his touches, to the way sweat rolled down his neck as he strummed into his guitar on stage; everything about him completely enthralled you. So why are you now, two and a half years later, on a train to Seoul, telling a complete stranger the recollection of how you became fated to forever have scars on all of your future hearts due to the happiness, but most of all the pain, that came along with falling in love with Jeon Jungkook.
The slight tremble in Jimin’s fingertips developed into a
full-blown tremor as he closed the door to his studio, effectively leaving you
behind — but it wasn’t that simple. It wasn’t that simple because he wasn’t just
leaving you behind. He was leaving you behind with a guy that you were
completely in love with… Which kind of blowed considering he was starting to
fall for you himself.
The music from the party was reverberating inside of his
chest and he knew that his ears should be ringing with anger, but instead he
just felt numb. It was like he
couldn’t hear anything; no music, no crowd, nothing.
It was all one giant blur that didn’t seem to make sense to him, and all
because his mind was screaming that nothing else mattered right now — nothing
except for you.
Jimin knew very well what leaving you in that room with
Jungkook meant. It meant every single feeling that the two
of you had ever had for each other would inevitably rekindle, and compared to what Jimin had with you,
even if he did consider it one of most amazing stints of time of his entire
life, it didn’t hold a candle to what you and Jungkook had, and probably always would have.

[TITLE: THE CHICKEN
GAME BETWEEN THE AGENCY AND B.A.P’S FANS]
B.A.P’s world tour is
opening soon. The fans declare a boycott and express objection towards the
concert (T/N: Seoul Boom; context for Babyz’ reference: Boycott Camp wants to
boycott Seoul Boom to lead to cancellation of the Seoul Boom concerts as well
as the rest of the Party Baby World Tour). TS Entertainment’s position is that
they will not back down because concert cannot be cancelled with the confirmation
of plans and contracts for concerts in place, hence it is impossible for
cancellation. The situation of the intense polarised spate (between the agency
and the fans) is being played out right now.
released through the B.A.P’s official channel to inform fans of a world tour
that will start with the concerts in Seoul. The Seoul concerts will be held at
the Blue Square Samsung Card Hall over three days starting on 24 March and the
world tour is coordinated now with USA and Europe to happen afterwards. In the
concert poster, an exciting party atmosphere is seen with logos and neon signs
reminiscent of a club to reveal a scene of exciting fun and exciting
performances by the members.
Contrary to the
poster’s enjoyable time with the members, fans’ reactions were the opposite.
Via SNS platforms (T/N: Twitter), fans expressed their sentiments with the
hashtag #2017_BAP월드투어_반대, which is now part of the
boycott campaign that’s ongoing right now. There has even been a portal site
petition page that has been opened for the campaign. Campaigners are worried
about the tight and taxing schedule that the members have to digest after going
on many tours after their 2012 debut, with the Pacific Tour in 2013 Summer, the Arena
Tour in 2013 Winter, the Continent Tour in 2014 Summer, the World Tour in 2016,
the Japan Tour in 2017 January, and even the upcoming 2017 Party Baby World
Another question that
fans have is of Yongguk’s health—on sick leave due to the diagnosis of his
panic disorder—and his participation in the concerts and in the world tour. In
the past year’s second full length album NOIR’s promotions for ‘Skydive’, he
was even too unwell to participate in the promotions, thus it is doubted
whether he is well enough to join the upcoming tour. The conclusion is that it
is fans’ wish to see a stop to the abuse of ‘our oppas’ with unreasonable
The agency is put in
a difficult spot by the fans’ boycott. It is said that the plans for the tour
cannot be made without the discussion with members, and members have also
shared the official post of the world tour on their own SNS accounts to express
their wish to go through with the plans; hence this is the current stand. In
response to the charge of unreasonable schedule, it is expressed that “after
last November’s promotions for Skydive, members already had a 2-week break” and
this has been discussed with the members. With regards to the lack of domestic
activities for B.A.P, TS expressed that “a new album is about to be released
before the world tour and it is in the pipelines for B.A.P to promote it on
Music Shows” as explanation. It is also speculated/ hinted that in the new
album, the voice of Bang Yong Guk who is resting now will be heard.
As such, right now the agency and the fans are in a
tense standoff. The agency that refuses to give any explanation or response to
fans wants to tide over the controversy of being labelled as ‘bad’, and from
the standpoint of the agency, fans are putting on a show of tyranny. Whether it
will be a performance that has no fans, or the disadvantage of cancelling the
performance, either outcome will be B.A.P’s tragedy.
(Personal side note: While I’m not in the boycott camp, I felt slighted and mocked when the reporter used terms like fans are worried about the abuse of “our oppas”. In addition, it starts to look like a report in favour of TS when the quotes start coming up, which made babyz’ concerns seem unreasonable and uncalled for. Also, most importantly, the fact that TS thinks that having 2 weeks break after promoting Skydive means B.A.P can have a killer world tour schedule from March till god-knows-which-month tells me that TS has no common sense and is not listening or reading our concerns, which is the killer tour schedule and not whether B.A.P gets vacation breaks or not. For instance, sleeping 72 hours straight does not mean that you can work for 123456 days straight. So resting for 2 weeks last December doesn’t mean that one can store that rest like a camel stores water and overwork in future. In addition, promoting on Music Shows for only around 2 weeks before going on tour is not doing the new album justice nor is it really answering to our call for more domestic activities. TS is not answering anything at all. Last but not least, the very last line is immensely saddening. It is also precisely why I champion for the middle ground camp. Why doesn’t anyone see it like I do.)

Join us in sending emails to TS Entertainment.
(on top of the many tweets that I’m sure many of us have sent so far, since 2 February last week)
Please stay polite and refrain from any antagonistic remarks. This is what I sent recently. As long as it is not fixed in stone (the schedules ㅠㅠ), let’s try to knock some sense through TS’s seemingly pretty thick skull. We need to combat this stubbornness, let them see that we are trying to improve things for B.A.P but also not disadvantaging them in any way.
Should you wish to write to TS, this is just a sample for your reference. Should you be jaded and prefer to sit out of this one, I understand. Should you want to boycott the world tour, I really sincerely hope you don’t hurt B.A.P by gifting them an empty concert hall to sing to.
