Cue in: AgentP in Sawsawera Mode
I just want to say something about this thing that I saw on Twitter as regards the #NaBigbangKa topic:
First of all: I don’t know why she’s blaming DaraGon fans for this. Yes, there were a few DaraGon banners but there certainly were NO DARAGON CHANTS. At least, none that reached my ears that night. I was seated in front of a DaraGon fan group. They waved their banner whenever GD was on our side but nobody chanted ‘Daragon’. This person is just assuming there was, according to her sources. She’s not even there, how could she make such a conclusion?
People cheered for DARA’s presence, sure. Well, why not? Sandara Park remains to be one of the most popular celebrities here. What do you want us to do, remain silent when Seungri acknowledged her presence? That has nothing to do with DaraGon shipping, at all.
I think she was right about cellphones/cameras being at our faces, though. At one point, when Daesung was on our side, my seatmate Charity said Dae looked at her and waved as he seemed to be surprised that she (Cha) was not holding a phone or camera and just enjoying the show. I got that same vibe from GD, as well, because he made eye contact with Lou who was on my other side and was also camera/cellphone-less. He waved at Lou, then passed over me and waved at the next few rows and sections. I was documenting all of that on my phone, which may be the reason why GD ‘snubbed’ me. I think they generally don’t like people taking photos/videos of them during the concert because they were thinking, how can we (the fans) enjoy the show if all we do is point our cameras at them? (Not true for all, though. I mean, ever heard of multi-tasking?)
This only reminds me of my own experience in September 2010. I cannot seem to fathom why this person (you know who) seemed to dislike me. Or at least, I get that vibe from him. Maybe because I’m already identified as that person who’s always holding a camera whenever he sees me? Never mind that I only take footage during official times, that is, during presscons and concerts, and ok, during his drama filming (I think it’s this last one that did it) and never during his down times. Once you’re caught with a camera in his presence, you will always be identified with it.
But… but… guys! You’re celebrities! Aren’t you supposed to be used to it? Or more accurately, you should be used to it because that’s what you’re getting paid millions for?
Anyway, this is just me blabbering about stuff just for blogging purposes. For all we know, it’s just TOP being clueless at Instagram and accidentally deleting his Manila post, or GD/Taeyang being too busy having fun in Manila to be able to compose a more lengthy message (as what Ms. Happee said). I still think that Big Bang MADE in Manila is one of the best concerts, ever (see my forthcoming blog about that, hopefully soon), and if ever they would come back I’d still watch. And say, “thank you!”
An open letter to YG Entertainment from an Indonesian fan who saw the Jakarta concert is currently going viral. Said letter listed down the various problems that Indo fans had to endure to see Big Bang’s MADE concert.
One of the things she listed is that the rampant use of DSLR cameras and selfie-sticks at the concert.
Wait… I thought they kept their cellphones (and by extension, their cameras) in their bags or pockets? Oh wait. You can’t pocket a DSLR. And she never said that the cellphone is not covering her face because it was at the end of a selfie stick.
Sorry ate, pero may kasabihan kami rito: ang isda ay nahuhuli sa bibig.
Anyway, moving on…
