I was really touched by the mv, and I was in tears quick maybe because I consider myself touched by one (or three) of these issues. Plus the fact they used an all non-korean cast impressed me.
I’m glad Youngguk is back and the fact that he has problems too just make it deeper… It amazes me how far they’ve come from and how grown up men they are now (will Junhong ever stop growing, don’t think so).
Gukkie would need a bit of time to cool himself down before realizing that he was the one who did the wrong. After that, he would scroll through all of the mutual friends that you two had, trying to find out your whereabouts so he could properly apologise, not just through a text.
Normally, I don’t consider HimChan to be very hot-headed. He would put a lot of thought into what right words to say to not make the situation worse as it is. If the argument actually came to a point where you had to run-away from home then I don’t believe he’d see what he has done and it would take a lot of smaller conflicts with his members to get him back on the right track.
DaeHyun is probably the one person that blows up really fast for no reason at all. He would not feel the argument escalating until he felt his hand going up, seeing red as you cowered away from him before your own hands. As you saw no more threat you instantly tried to leave, but he never let you as he embraced you in his arms and apologized over and over again for not treating you the right way; for being stupid. He promised you the world right then and there.
It’s not that he meant to make the argument escalate, but you simply had a hard week and his stupid little sass-filled questions and nags annoyed you to no end, making you explode all of a sudden. He didn’t take you seriously when you left, but it was becoming worrying when you didn’t come back that night. He would call you numerous of times and text you a billion and one of instances just to get a hold of you.
JongUp is a sweet man that really hates arguments. He’s a pacifist so usually, he would simply give up in any impending argument that might happen. Therefore, the arguments that you two shared were less. However, when they did happen, they were on a scale of catastrophe and so the both of you agreed that after such an argument you would simply give each-other some time alone to get the stress off.
He’s a baby, why would you even have an argument with him in the first place? He wouldn’t know how to deal with your sudden absence and would probably go crazy of worry for your well-being. Who knew where you were and what you were doing? Thoughts of you getting into an accident would flood his mind and it would be up to his hyungs to actually ask of you to finally come back, because their dongsaeng is going mental.
Soompi posted an article about Yongguk’s return from hiatus with this headline and I’m loving it because it’s the purest form of shade. From now on I’m only going to address TS Ent. as “Bang Yongguk’s agency.” Like who is TS?? What’s a Kim Tae Song??? I only know Bang Yongguk’s agency :))))))))))))))
So, you know I'm rather new to the fandom, and this will be my first comeback, and I want to do anything I can to help make this comeback a success for our boys. Can you tell me what I can do? like I dont know if I will be able to buy the album, but what other things can I do and where? Thanks~
Sure thing! I’ll give you some basics of what a typical comeback is like for fans! I hope this info is helpful for all BABYz and thanks to the awesome BABYz who provided tutorials for all of these methods!
The easiest method is to just promote BAP as much as possible for every comeback. Whether it’s Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, Instagram, or Snapchat, introducing BAP to other K-Pop fans as well as people who are not into K-pop is seriously so helpful. The more we talk about BAP, the more exposure they’ll get, which will lead to more fans and more opportunities for BAP in the future!
I cannot stress this enough when I say that when discussing BAP on social media PLEASE keep your posts and comments positive. Talk about how great the songs are, how perfect the MV is, write about OT6′s flawless singing and dancing, etc; however, DON’T make negative posts criticizing BAP/BABYz/other fandoms because it really reflects back on BAP. DON’T start rumors or spread them, DON’T post or repost negative comments/posts from others, and DON’T write negative comments directly to BAP on sns. Also, even though we all can agree TS sucks, it’s clear that they go out of their way to avoid any concerns from BABYz. Even though it’s frustrating, before you send them emails, call their offices, or threaten to fly to Korea and punch every employee at TS in the face, PLEASE think of what your words/actions will do to BAP. We don’t know what truly goes on with BAP and TS, so it’s best to remain positive and focuse on promoting the boys and patiently waiting for news from TS and then we can punch everyone if they fuck up as usual :D
Even though you’re still unsure about buying a physical copy of the album, if you do end up deciding it’s best to buy from stores whose sales count towards charts, such as Gaon and Hanteo. Preordering is also really important for sales within the first week, so here are a few verified stores for each chart in addition to TS Ent.’s official store:
Searching for BAP online will actually help them gain exposure and hype about their comeback. Simply go on the Naver website or app, type in “BAP ROSE”, click on and share articles on your social media, clear your history, and repeat!
There are also search attacks that we do, in which there are scheduled times for BABYz to search about BAP on Naver in order to get them trending. If you check BAPdomination on Twitter, they post the schedules and search words for each day.
Voting will help BAP win on music programs, as well as for appearances on various variety shows (which will increase their exposure and popularity). The Vote4BAP Twitter provides info for where streaming/voting can be done.
Streaming allows for digital sales, which count for roughly 50% of votes on music shows. In order to stream, you need to purchase passes on sites like Genie or Melon.
Melon streaming can seem intimidating, but there are literally soooo many wonderful BABYz who are always offering to help set up an account, or even stream for you (a lot of BABYz actually advertise this kind of help on Twitter/Tumblr/Instagram so make sure to stay on your social media grind during comebacks!). In order to stream on Melon, you need to create and account and either use your PC or dowload the mobile app. There’s a document that BABYz made that explains the whole process along with an FAQ if you have any trouble.
TS YouTube Channel
You can also stream the official MV on TS Ent.’s YouTube channel(it’s best to watch the MVs on TS’s channel even though 1theK also posts the MV and has more subscribers [which means more exposure] but really focus on TS’s channel first and foremost. Stream in 720p or above, like/comment/share the MV on all social medias, watch the full MV without pausing AND at a volume above 50%. Also DON’T click replay or refresh the page; instead, play the video incognito or clear your history. You can also create a playlist of just the MV so that it continuously loops.
Streaming can also be done on Tudou to help BAP win on THE SHOW. Open this link in incognito mode and click the orange button beside the ROSE MV. You don’t have to watch the whole MV ~ there are two lines when the video loads: orange and gray. Let the gray line load fully after you press play and that counts as a stream. Make sure you don’t mute the video while it’s playing, otherwise it doesn’t count. As always, delete your history/cookies and try from all devices and computers.
Naver TV Cast
Finally, streaming can be done on Naver TV cast, but the options listed above tend to be the most used by fans (especially Tudou - BAP tend to win a lot on THE SHOW since it’s a system solely based on the input of fans’ streaming, but it has been known to be messy sometimes when counting votes so NEVER STOP STREAMING lol).
itsBAP actually has a tutorial to make an account to join BAP’s official fanclub, in case anyone was interested in this option as well!
Of course, there are so many ways to support BAP in their comebacks, but above all just being a loyal BABY is the best support you can give! Let’s all work together to make this comeback a success and make 2017 BAP’s year! Fighting! ♡
