I wonder if the girl GD looked at is still alive. I would die if he looked at me like that. I bet he does that on purpose since he knows the affect he has on most females.

cant take my eye off GD!!!He is so cute and so good looking!!!
I was there last night and I think I can answer some of your questions.
1. All the seats were taken before the show started. You guys see some empty seats because many fans didn't stay on their seats but rushed to the front rows.
2. The fans could take such great photos because the security was sooooo loose. The guards were serious about water bottles during bag check but didn't care much about cameras.
3. Usually video or photo taking is not allowed during the show and a guard will stop you when he sees you doing that. But last night all the guards cared about was to calm down the fans everytime the BB members tried to get closer (e.g. asked them to sit down, stay away from the fence, stop screaming, etc.).
4. Taeyang was not topless on the stage because it was not recommended in China.
THANKS :) You answered all my curiosity :)))
K-pop industry’s profit distribution system gives idols a hard time?
Sorry I know that was off topic but I had to defend YG
This is an article from Allkpop Last July 25, 2012
Idol singer “member A” recently received his first settlement a full two years after his debut.
“About a year after our debut, I and other friends my age started talking about settlements among ourselves. The standard of success lies upon who gets them faster.”
For the past two years, A has released a total of three mini-albums and held continuous promotions in Korea and overseas as well as through broadcast appearances. Every time he brought up payment, his agency would answer that he had not yet passed the ‘break-even point’ (BEP). Though numbers may vary, preparing a team of trainees for debut costs an average of half a billion to a billion Won ($434376-868810 USD).
Settlements usually start after the BEP is exceeded. Generally, production costs include vocal and choreography training, recording, CD production, music video filming, and on as well as offline promotion expenses. Also, when the group starts making appearances on television shows, wardrobe and hair expenses followed by cost of back up dancers are added. The company pays for the group to be fixed members on shows as well. Additionally, housing, food, and use of studios are also part of the production costs.
In the beginning stages of an album release, agencies generally focus on getting their idols on television shows. When compared to expenditures of 3-4 million Won ($260620-347494 USD) to appear on a show, compensation for appearances are only 300,000-400,000 Won ($260-348 USD). Cable channel ‘Mnet‘, ‘MBC Music‘, and three terrestrial broadcasting networks, a total of five weekly music programs, result in negative earnings. The explanation for this is that though the artist may not earn any money, the company will not go out of business.
Top idol group “Team B” released three albums in 2011 and received two payments in the first and second half of the year. Team B member “C” explained, “Even though the first album did well, if the second album doesn’t do well, we may not receive the settlement. The reality is that we worry every time we release an album whether we will exceed the BEP.” As a result, he is also concerned about the production cost: “In the process of preparing an album, if we find something on the company’s budget that is unnecessary, we ask that the cost be decreased. We’re going to have to earn it ourselves anyway.”
When the company schedules their artist for an overseas promotion project against the artist’s will, he or she will still have to carry the financial burden. Fundamentally, the agency has to have the consent of the artist to be able to expand to overseas promotions, but in reality, it is difficult for the artist go against the agency.
Even though these situations may seem reasonable to some, strictly speaking, this is not what happens in a normal working environment. It’s similar to saying that a company does not pay its employees because there is no profit and that the management company’s failure is due to the artist.
Predicting the nature of the entertainment market is relatively difficult. Even with all the requirements for a hit, the chances of hitting it big are slim despite unexpected success stories.
One agency representative stated, “In the past, there were cases that the production cost and event costs were separately calculated. The artists were paid when the production expenses surpassed the BEP and the event costs were divided between the artist and the agency. However, most of the companies that took this approach mostly resulted in failure. It is impossible for the company to operate normally and survive in this business if the BEP isn’t reached.”
In Korea, SM Entertainment takes full responsibility of production expenses, and JYP Entertainment also takes care of the album production cost as well as the entire production cost. This is possible because the two companies have artists who bring in plenty of funds for the company to support other artists. SM Entertainment stated, “A trainee’s expenses to debut and prepare an album are funded by profit made by other artists.” In that case, the artists from those two agencies, start earning incomes as soon as they debut. Of course, revenue distribution is according to the artist’s contract.
That was an article from allkpop....
That was an article from allkpop.....
Im not so sure about YG...one thing I'm sure of....
every YG FAMILY artists speaks (not literally) of money..their clothes, cars,
( GD's and DARA's ),accessories,almost everything...
.As far as I observed them,you won't find them cheap....
They are very expensive from head to toe......
2NE1 with all the clothes they wear in their mvs and stages...huge names from the fashion world....and it doesn't come of cheap....a single piece is worth more than hundreds of US dollars...
In BIGBANG's case it was very apparent that if 2NE1 has money, what more does BIGBANG have?
G-DRAGON alone speaks volume of money, we may reason it out for the royalties he earns as a producer.....but the boy was the highest earner in 2011 even with the hot issue surfaced last year
T.O.P does not come penniless either...even though anyone can say that its because of his movies and cfs...how many movies/dramas did T.O.P made? unless every drama/movies he made his fee was like Brad Pitt's.
TAEYANG, does the boy deal with movies nor cfs? in my opinion, he seems like the one whose focus is primarily music...cfs yes but as a group. However, Taeyang is very expensive with all the brands...CHROME HEARTS do not come cheap...buying a single item will cost you a fortune....and remember,
DAESUNG and SEUNGRI, though both seem the simplest and modest when it comes to their outfits,no one would dare to say that their clothes and things are cheap...They just don't spend more compared to their hyungs...but these boys surely does have a fat bank account under their names...
Take note also with the dancers....I'm not sure but H-TECH and CRAZY particularly the KWON TWINS seems like richer than other dancers from the other agencies....
.And NO ONE from YG FAMILY ARTISTS speak ill of their agency...I never heard any complaints nor issue from the artists amout money matters....
YG FAMILY seems contented and happy with their agency and CEO, PAPA YG!!!
from a YG STAN, BIGBANG's V.I.P, and 2NE1's Blackjack!!!
And your point of this post is....??
OMG best night ever!!!! TOP was so cute happily jumping around :DDD GD attacked the maknae AGAIn LOL XDD
I saw a fancam of GD&TOP performing High High at Guangzhou concert. GD looked really, REALLY good there with his "Bono of U2" glasses. If anyone has a photo of him in that performance, let me know. Thanks.
