Dear fellow BABYs,
can we please stop with all the passive aggressive comments towards TS and all the hate we give them?
Yes, they did wrong. Yes, they used to treat B.A.P bad and overwork them. And yes, their management skill most of the time is mediocre, to say the least.
However, please keep in mind that we have no justification
to think TS is still as bad as they once were. Do the boys look
unhappy, enslaved and overworked to you? Of course they will be tired
after a long schedule of flying back and forth for concerts, and
certainly, the schedule of the last world tour was insane, but don’t
forget how much planning and exterior influences are involved in such a
thing. Renting the halls, getting flights that fit, the hotels, other
events and appointments… sometimes it’s not ’Let’s make 5 concerts over 7 days just because we want to kill our moneymakers’ but rather a ’we have no other choice if we want to visit those locations, is everyone content with this decision?’.
I could come up with even more examples for this - most recently the
teaser-situation. If you look into it, most of the time (in recent
comebacks) it took at least 10 days for more info to come. Nobody knows
if the boys’ uploads of predebut and debut-stuff is part of the teasers
(personally I highly think so) and we also don’t know if their shooting
schedule got screwed up or if a mishap occured. I remember the time when
SNSDs Mister Mister was set to come out but it had to be delayed
because most of the footage of the MV-Shooting was accidently
deleted/corrupted… We as fans never know what happens behind the
scenes and companys and idols try to conceal such faux pas for the
simple reason that it’s bad publicity and simply embarrassing.
Especially when they haven’t put out a set date for the comeback yet and
can just push it back a week without indepth explanation.
Let’s just not start any dispute about ’how bad TS manages things’ and focus on supporting our boys, regardless of whether their comeback is in the next like 8 days or not until the start of september.
do you people actually think that B.A.P would have gone back to TS if
they only got a half-assed apology with a vague promise to change the
situation? I can’t be the only one who thinks they wouldn’t have, even
if it meant for them to further halt their activities and find a
solution in the form of a new, maybe even shittier company.
Let’s just trust our boys that they made the decision to go back to TS while being perfectly content with the agreement they made with their company. Them staying at TS after all the shit they got means A LOT. And they seem genuinely happier, have more freedom (see especially Junhong and his nearly daily livestreams and Yongguk bringing out his own Song kinda detached from TS.) and, most importantly, more freetime. The fact that they handled Yongguks therapy for his panic disorder so well also speaks a lot for how the company tries to treat them properly now. I’m pretty sure previous to the lawsuit, they would have made Yongguk promote anyway.
Of course you are all still entitled to your personal opinion and you are still free to shit on TS as much as you like, I’m just asking you to overthink your stance and maybe try to be a little less judgemental and a bit more positive, especially as long as we have no proof that our boys get treated badly again. After all it’s not helping our boys if we don’t trust their decision and their company and only spread negativity and might influence other fandoms to think badly about B.A.P and TS :/ They get enough shit already for staying with TS, we don’t have to give other people further reason to judge our boys on a non musical-basis and henceforth hate on them despite putting out good music and working hard.
So… yeah. That’s all I have to say.
Please be assured that with all that I don’t want to say that TS is perfect. They surely aren’t and they still make a buttload of mistakes and could do better in certain, if not all aspects
Please, everyone, stay positive and support B.A.P with all your heart even if it means to tolerate TS and their mediocre management skills. Although I can’t force you, I’m asking you to maybe refrain from posting too much negativity in the tags (at least while we know of an upcoming comeback until they promote and especially if it’s only because we wait for teasers…), since it’s putting people down. We don’t want anyone to stop supporting B.A.P just because they got disheartened by some comments and the pure idea of TS giving up on them, don’t we? :)
