As the attendees of the US concert stops may have heard already, there will be a Pre-Show Meet Up before the concerts, and fortunately we, at ITSBAP, have been given the opportunity to represent ourselves at this event!
ITSBAP will be at all four Pre-Show Meet Ups (LA, SF, DC, NY) as part of the various B.A.P fan clubs that will be there, and we will have our own table. If you’re coming make sure to stop by, because we will be having some really awesome stuff!
Aside from giving out the hand banners for our hand banner project, we will also be selling badges for US $3 each, with 10 versions — 6 versions for each B.A.P member and 4 versions of… that’s a secret… — we’re doing this with the intention of donating half of the profits to the UNICEF charity under the name of ITSBAP, as a way to represent International BABYs. So if you want to make sure you catch your bias in a cute badge (and feel good knowing you contributed to a good cause) and get a cool ITSBAP banner for the concert or to keep as a little memoir, be sure to come by our table early! And don’t worry about not being able to spot our table — we’ll be having a huge, colorful banner with our name on it, so look out for that. We’d also like to take the time out to give a huge thanks to Jez for going out of her way to make all of the lovely caricatures; we truly appreciate it.
Moreover, we know that many of the supporters of ITSBAP would like to meet the admins that run this fanblog. While not all of us can be there — due to reasons of distance — admins Shell and Maria, along with another helpful volunteer Xia, will be there to represent this blog. So you can still have the opportunity to meet the people whose lives revolve around our boys (in quite a literal way). The other two admins, Sam and Chi, will dedicate their time to take care of the blog, which means they will keep you updated while the others are away.
Us admins are really excited for this event, and we hope you are too! Hopefully this experience becomes a memorable and special one, so we’d like to encourage as many people as possible to attend this event. Thank you, and to those who are planning to go to the Pre-Show Meet Up, see you there! ♥
To further motivate our followers and international BABYs to contribute to our concert project, we, at ITSBAP, are delighted to announce that we will be holding a special giveaway! We hope you all are as excited as we are, because we have some truly great prizes for you to try and win!
Giveaway starts: April 8th, 2013
Giveaway ends: April 28th, 2013 @ 8PM EST
Please keep in mind that only the ticket itself will be provided (transportation and such will be at your own expense) and it will be given to you on the day of the concert (to prevent reselling). In addition, to our followers wanting to go to the San Francisco and Washington DC concerts, don’t worry! We might be having a giveaway to a concert near you soon.
To show our support to B.A.P at their upcoming US, Singapore and Hong Kong concerts, we, at ITSBAP, have decided to create our own hand banners to be held by fans at the concerts! We’d like to encourage our followers and every international BABY, regardless if you’re going to the concert or not, to contribute in this great opportunity to let our boys know about our efforts and love through these banners (which say “We’ll always support you!” in Korean), and give them an amazing sight to see. Sounds interesting? Read on!
We’ll be handing out as many banners as we can to the fans attending the Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington DC, New York, Japan, Singapore, and Hong Kong concerts. We will need your help in collecting funds, so we can make this awesome project come to life! And don’t worry; we won’t be putting a minimum amount for you to donate, so you can contribute as much as you would like (because we all know how much every little bit counts)! To get you even more motivated to donate, we’ll be giving the top 3 donors who contributed the most these following items:
You can donate in one of two ways:
When making your donation, please send us an email at email@example.com in this format:
Name / Country / Twitter / Tumblr / Amount Donated / Transaction Proof (just a screen cap of the receipt will do) / Money Transfer Control Number (if sending through Western Union)
We will keep donations open until further notice, so make sure you get them in as soon as possible! We want this experience to be a remarkable and unforgettable one for both B.A.P and BABYs, so we encourage you all to spread the word, and help contribute and support our project! Thank you. ♥
Due to some unfortunate events, it will become harder for us to take care of this blog as well as we used to, which is why we’ve decided to look for some help. We’re currently only looking for one person, but we might add more if we consider it necessary. Please note that we will be extremely picky when choosing a new admin and that the person we choose will only start as a mod so we can evaluate his/her work. We hope you’ll understand, as itsbap is a very important blog to us.
If you want to apply, you must know how to use and navigate:
If you do not know one or any of these, please do not apply.
➪ APPLICATION FORM:
We’re preferably looking for someone whose timezone is similar to Korea’s. However if you don’t live in Asia you can still apply. We also want someone who knows a lot about the members of the group so they would be able to answer questions.
Applying to be an admin here means you will most likely lose some sleep, spend money you’d rather keep for yourself and worst of all, you’ll have to deal with us. You will have to follow a lot of twitter accounts, weibos and you might break your F5 button. You will also need an incredible amount of patience, determination and motivation.
If you think you’re ready, please fill the whole form below:
Send your completed application to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are open until further notice.
Good luck and thank you! ♥
Seeing as the previous project of BAPYProjects was a complete success we, at ITSBAP, have decided to join and contribute once again for their new project! We’re very grateful to our followers because without you, it wouldn’t have been possible. This time around, we’d like to encourage you guys to participate in Project: [BANG!] to celebrate Yongguk’s upcoming birthday on March 31st.
As we all know, our leader is into charity and he finds happiness in helping children, therefore the project consists of donating to a Korean children hospital under Bang Yongguk’s name. As a recompense to those who donated, a photomosaic of Yongguk’s portrait made of BABYs selcas (example) will be sent to him as a gift. They are aiming to collect as much money as possible to be able to purchase a few more items as birthday gifts.
For this project to succeed, we will need the help and collaboration from BABYs all over the world. Keep in mind that the donation period ends on March 14th, so we don’t have much time left. Spread the word around and donate now! ♥
new theme is up!
It’s finally here! To fit B.A.P’s return, both to their powerful musical side and the stage, we’ve prepared a darker yet striking design. We tried to make it as epic as their new release, going for a simple, clean and stylised look. For those who might be looking for them, hover over the description for the navigation. We hope you’ll like our first theme of 2013 and as always, if there are any problems or glitches with it, don’t hesitate to message us! ♥
BAPYProjects has invited us to join this amazing project and we, at ITSBAP, have decided to contribute to it! We’d like to encourage our followers and every international BABY out there to participate in this great opportunity to let our boys know about our efforts and love through it.
As stated in the pictures above, the project consists of sending rice wreath to show our support for B.A.P’s first concert - Live on Earth, Seoul. The price of the rice wreath itself is 130,000 won, which means they are aiming to collect US$ 130.
For this project to be possible, we need the help and collaboration from BABYs all over the world. The name and country flag of each person that donates will be shown in the rice wreath for our boys to acknowledge all of you!
Keep in mind that the donation period ends on February 18th so we don’t have much time left. Spread the word around and donate now! ♥
As you may have heard already, there have been several photos being shared on several sites, such as Instagram and Twitter. Us admins at itsbap are also fully aware of them, and we would like to clarify a few things.
It is known that B.A.P went to the Philippines (Marikina, to be exact) to film something, but we do not know what they were recording for. There have been rumours about them recording a music video, likewise with a CF. However, nothing has been confirmed about this, so we will just have to see what will be released.
On a more serious note, it has come to our attention that people have been sending the people who the pictures originated from and even the members themselves words of “disappointment”, with some even crossing the line of harassment and bullying. It is strongly suggested that such messages are refrained from being sent, especially given that many of us do not know the exact circumstances for which these pictures were taken.
It is recommended that we move on from this matter, as it is in the fandom’s, as well as the boys’, best interest to do so. All we can do now is to anticipate the release of this footage instead of linger onto the negativity, because we’re sure that’s what B.A.P would want us to do.
If anything official comes out in the future, we will surely keep you updated. Thank you for your attention, and from now, we will be ignoring any questions regarding this matter.
Since we have been getting a lot of messages about the Golden Disk Awards, we decided to make a text post to clear up some confusion.
Will there be a live streaming for the GDAs?
What’s the difference between Day 1 and Day 2?
The Golden Disk Awards are separated into two days. B.A.P did not attend the first day. They will be attending the second day (January 16th). They will walk the red carpet and will be performing “Intro + Power”, “Warrior” and Medley performance with Secret (‘Starlight Moonlight’ + ‘Crash’).
Note: We will not be answering any more messages regarding this, if the issue is already addressed in this post. Thank you.
 The year B.A.P debuted and so did itsbap! Truthfully, it’s been a year of many ups and downs. We’ve gained and lost some of the most helpful and admirable admins; especially one of the founders Stef, who we will forever be grateful to. We’ve been stressed 95% of our time, we lack a lot of sleep and now our lives revolve around six idiots. But that’s part of being a fan and an admin, isn’t it? We do this for the fandom but mostly, because we love our boys and we want to let the world know about them.
As we’ve said a few times before, when we started this blog we didn’t think it would become as half as big as it is now, and we are grateful that our efforts paid off and made a difference.
We want to take this opportunity to thank every single one of you; supporters and non-supporters of itsbap. Yes, your daily messages are what keep us going on. Even if some of them might not be the best, we read and learn from them. We truly apologize for any inconvenience we caused in 2012, and we promise to make itsbap a better place for BABYs from all over the world and not disappoint any of you in 2013.
If you have any feedback regarding the blog, or if you have any ideas about what you’d like to see in the future, then feel free to leave a message! Like what we’ve mentioned before, the knowledge gained from your feedback has helped shape itsbap to how it stands today.
Once again, from all of us here at itsbap, we wish everyone a very happy, prosperous new year, and good luck and health to you and your loved ones! We thank you tremendously for your abundant support, and we will try our hardest to be the best we can be in the new year. Let’s stay together for a long time.
Shell, Carmen, Sam and Chi. ♥
