  • Jiam

    GD, I know you want to get everything done and have it all perfect for us VIPs, but please rest! I'm happy that you're working hard and getting things done for us, but it's also making me feel a little guilty. :( Please rest! I'd rather wait longer for everything than see you collapse from exhaustion.

  • http://twitter.com/AviWill Avi Will

    Jiyong-ah, don't forget that there's such thing as "sleeping", it's pretty good for you...
    damn, I'm excited but also very worried...I don't even understand how he can keep his eyes open and still film MVs when he's tired with no sleep for 3 days

    Why does he write it on Twitter ? He just wants attention -.-

    • DaTruth


    • linnunrata

      I think you are the one who wants attention..to the left, please!

      • 21_Bang

        Hahahaha why should I?? Please why would he write it on twitter??3 Days ? There are other idols who work harder and dont complain its just pathetic , i lost my respext for him :/

        • linnunrata

          Wow! You must be with other idols who work hard!
          Sorry GD didn't work hard or he doesn't have a right to share his thoughts. Glad he did it..glad he wrote it because I can understand how he feels..I like people like GD who share their opinions in good and bad times and being honest of themselves!

            I am a VIP and i liked GD (but he wasnt my bias) till now .

          • nbi

            vips would understand. you are not a vip. bias or not, you should respect everyone. "liked"? really? obviously not a vip. you should just call yourself a fan of whoever your bias is.

        • http://twitter.com/YinPestano Cindy Pestaño

          That just happens to be his own twitter account and he can write whatever he wants. ;)

          • 21_Bang

            Its still embarassing ...

          • Kimmy

            It could be just his album concept too you know. I think you're just jumping to conclusions.

        • VIP4Lyf

          ?????? plssss just get the f*ck out....im sorry im not usually like this, i usually stayed quiet whenever i saw comments like this but not this time..is it wrong for him to share his thoughts too like other people do?? just because his a celebrity/idol he cant express what he feels? shm

        • http://www.facebook.com/janinalyn Janinalyn Arciaga

          I DON'T REALLY THINK HE IS COMPLAINING... but yea you're right, he wants attention...he just want to gain some comfort from his fans for him to motivate himself more to cope up with what he's doing... You have your freedom to tell your opinion..But let me tell you this, idol-fans relationship is not totally differ from any kind of friendships.. Any human,in some point of time, could feel that they are in their weakest point that the only thing he/she can do is to ask comfort from a friend.. And just because of this you lost your respect on him?... You're not worth it to become his fan.. NO BIG DEAL though.. Just one piece of advice, since you don't respect him anymore, just don't put any kind of negative comments here anymore, it will just cause a fight here.. ty

        • peekaboo1988

          You lost respect oh him because he hasn't slept for days, working his ass off and shared his worries with this fans ? I don't know whether i should laugh at you, get mad or just pity you, if you think this way, i don't wanna know how you treat people in real life. Do whatever you want but one little advice, don't ever go around accusing people that they want attention when their express their thoughts, you will forever be left alone and it will be too late when you finally realize that there is nothing better than sharing your worries and concerns with people that understand and love you. I love this guy because he is strong and hardworking but he is also vulnerable and isn't afraid to show how he truly feels, at such moments, he isn't G-Dragon, the idol, he is Kown JiYong, a young boy, full of worries and fears, just like you and me.

        • pascha120

          Jeez hypercrical much? It's twitter, people can tweet whatever they want, just like you can voice your (imo) negative opinion wherever you want. He's not the first celeb in SK (or in the world for that matter) to tweet in this manner and he's simply being honest with fans. Fans already suspected way before his tweet that he was under a tone of pressure (plus it's well-known/documented that he's a huge perfectionist who's constantly hard on himself). Everyone awaiting his next album would be paying attention to his every move and feeling sorry for him b/c of the added stress of the KRMB so it's safe to assume he already had everyone's pity (and attention)…. well maybe except for yours.

          You don't know what's going on behind the scenes. You may be a fan of other idols but how many idols do you know who work with foreign acts/producers, produce/write songs for themselves and others, take choreography super seriously, closely control their art direction/image/style and go on world tours with their group while working on a solo album (plus the promo/image work for it) with a perfectionist's eye like GD? He takes every aspect of his (and BB's) work to heart so if he's feeling stressed b/c of a looming deadline, the KMRB restricting his artistic freedom (he may have already envisioned his image and storyline for the new MV but now last minute has to change it b/c of the new law), the fan expectation and whatever other drama is going on then you know what? He's completely entitled to have a little pity. It doesn't help to keep emotions bottled up all the time especially in times of high stress. That kind of behaviour can make an individual feel even more isolated, stressed and self-conscious which isn't healthy at all. More negative feelings can lead to even more serious problems down the line (especially if the person is in denial about their emotional state/current situation). It's better to be open and honest and encouraging words are a highly positive thing. There is absolutely no shame in asking for help (in GD's case encouraging msgs) especially when someone is down especially if they feel a little help is what they need to pull them through the tough times.

          I do however think that there should be a sense of shame when someone (who doesn't know what a stranger is going through in real life) judges that stranger and needlessly cuts that person down when they're already in a tough situation/negative frame of mind. GD is at the end of the day a person just like the rest of us. Fans are sure he's dealing with stress from his new album and physical/emotional stress from non-stop touring/travelling/promo for BB's Alive but fans don't know about anything extra outside of BB that GD could be dealing with. For all you know there's also a possibility he could also be in a relationship that could be having problems (b/c of his many work commitments/travel) and/or having family problems (e.g. someone close to him might be suffering from health issues) and that could be also weighing on his mind on top of all his work commitments. Add to this the extra unwanted birthday present of the KMRB law… I mean the guy is testing his limits to please you and you call him pathetic and say you've lost respect for him then you act like he has no right to feel stressed and vent his emotions in a small tweet? Would you even have the guts say that to GD's face if you met him? Or would you smile politely, ask for an autograph and call him a pathetic attention-seeker behind his back? If you treat all your idols like this I'd hate to think that you treat your loved ones and close friends in this harsh manner also. That kind of negative attitude is the last thing that GD needs to see from 'fans' like you when he's already stressed.

          You behave like that and call yourself a fan… seriously? Have you done/achieved even half of what GD has at the young age of 23? Do you have fans around the world that you go on world tours/promos for? Do you perform/write/produce for Big Bang, GD&TOP, GD and other acts? Do you dance like a boss while having close artistic control over your art direction/media image? Do you appear in high-end fashion magazines in the dopest designer threads? Have you ever dealt with studio drama/issues with contracts/last minute edits thanks to sudden MV laws while simultaneously jetting around the world constantly away from family/loved ones on tour for a huge group project while prepping for the promotion/live performance of a totally new solo album that many fans are anticipating? No? Then maybe you should assess your own life/achievements, be a little more empathetic, check your own know-it-all negative attitude at the door and have several damn seats b/c frankly there's definitely something present in this post that's undeniably pathetic… and it's definitely not GD or the encouraging fans who send quick/short tweets or comments. That kind of positive fan support is there to remind GD to take care of himself/ keep his chin up and overcritical fans should try to leave the 'tough love talk' to people like YG, Kush and other co-workers who actually know what's going on in the studio behind the scenes and know GD personally.

          I know this is a super long comment but seriously I'm sick of seeing some fans (particularly ones who assume they know every little detail about BB's work life and private life) being highly presumptuous/negative and pressuring all the BB guys when they're busy juggling so many projects in SK and overseas. To be hard on BB members when they started the year in such a positive way and are still giving it their all amidst their crazy busy individual 2012 schedules doesn't help BB or the VIPs at all. There's nothing wrong with fans trying to encourage GD to, as Taeyang would say, 'STAY POSITIVE'. If fans sent negative comments that bordered on trash talk like yours do you honestly think that would have any positive effect whatsoever? Give all the guys (especially in your case GD) a break, set the negativity aside and support them so they can strive to do what they do best in a positive frame of mind.

      • 21_Bang

        Why should I ?? Come on why did he wrote it on Twitter ?? Because there are thousands of followers who will write things like "oh no my baby rest well and sleep" He only wants Attention and that people pity him .... There are so many other new idols who work their ass of and dont complain.. hes just pathetic , i lost my respect for him :/

        • alltheskies

          So just get the f*ck out?

          • Jacqueline

            Dang, ya'll tripping! DRAMA!!! Two snaps up!!

        • linnunrata

          Isn't it what twitter for? Share your thoughts...when you feel good and bad. Thanks he shared it; at least he is a human who has concerns, problems like us! You can think it is pathetic I think it is his right to express his opinion. We fans have a right to express our opinions sometimes become quite funny or harsh but as a star he doesn't. LMFAO!

          • 21_Bang

            I like your answer :D
            Better than those crazy fan girls whos get offensed and think im a hater just because i express my opinion^^ and maybe your right but still... I cant stand him ...sry for my bad english

          • linnunrata

            Like you say if you express your opinion, GD has a right to express his opinion as well. And whatever he says writes doesn't have to please everybody even if he is an idol, he is a human being like us- has flesh,blood and soul!

        • Jacqueline

          Because that's what's Twitter is for. Where have you been? Dang, don't have a cow man!

        • VenezuelanVIP

          Oh please, everyone has vented and ranted on twitter at least once, whether they had a bad day or are stressed/worried about something. Why can't GD do it too? I knew something like this would happen. That some ridiculous "fan" would start misjudging him because of his tweets for the stupidest reasons. I really hope there are not more "fans" like you, because if more people like you start bashing him for idiotic stuff like this, he will end up closing his twitter account. And the rest of the real VIPs will pay the consequences. So just STFU and GTFO!

    • Kimmy

      Really? It's his twitter he can write whatever he wants to write and are you sure you're a big bang fan. Ridiculous!!

    • Whimsical

      I don't know if you have ever been up for 3 days straight or even 2, or have you ever had to negociate and sit in long meetings and plan your own concept alone, or work with concert teams, or rush to finish something while juggling other projects. Don't forget he has had photoshoots for his album and BSX, he's still working on Big Bang as well as his solo, his solo has been pushed forward, he's had to make sudden changes because of the law. There is a physical and emotional drain here. Not to mention he is a perfectionist more so than others. Yes bravos to rookies but they do not get as personally involved in 2 projects at the same time and as rookies the expectations on them are not as high. Further more he got like this during bigbangs tonight comeback, in the bts he was borderline crazy from stress and lack of sleep. Its like he is expressing his concern, becuase this is big and there is so much to worry about. Your opinions come across as heartless and considering it seems he only replies to people he knows I doubt he really reads any replies to his condition. He wanted to write something with his teaser so the fact that he's harly slept is the first thing on his mind. I do the same when I have not slept, I don't do it for attention it's just all I can think about.

    • http://twitter.com/magentaswallow MagentaSwallow

      Hahahahhaah..... this is the prime case of the pot calling the kettle black. Look who's the one who wanted attention... yeah, YOU!! You deliberately left a comment that is sure to rile up the emotions of fans, knowing they will respond to you. -_- What a pathetic act.

    • bbvip

      WTF. -_- That was rude and heartless. I don't think you understand the concept of twitter. Its a place where you post about your thoughts and opinions. What he wrote wasn't embarrassing at all. What you wrote is pathetic. I am amazed at how someone could come up to that kind of conclusion. You obviously harbor some hate towards GD if you think that way about his posts. Tsk tsk.

    • VenezuelanVIP

      How can you say such thing? Do you honestly think that GD does not work enough? Are you aware that you owe most of Bigbang's songs to GD? Because it seems like you don't know that he has composed the majority of BB's songs. Also, as others VIPs have stated before, he is involved in every freaking phase of the album's production. That said, it's extremely selfish, heartless and inconsiderate to judge him like this and say that he is not hardworking, when he has given so much of himself to Bigbang.

      Even though GD is not my bias, I can recognize how valuable he is as an artist and as a member to Bigbang. Hell, even the rest of the BB members know this. If you are not able to recognize this, you might as well stop being a Bigbang fan now. I don't think they need fans like you, anyways.

      Your comment is just so f*cking disgusting...

  • semianna

    So I feel really bad that he's been up for three days and all - although I feel like I'm starting to expect this kind of stuff from him when albums are about to released :) - but I'm just really distracted by the picture haha. It looks super epic and am I the only one that has a feeling it's going to be a part of the mv? :D

  • linnunrata

    Dear GD, thanks for having a twitter account and sharing your thoughts with us, sharing how you feel...good or bad; I prefer your honest opinion million times to a cute selca.

  • Jacqueline

    It ain't nothing to be up 3 days straight. I do it often. I don't get much sleep. My mind is always working. I'm always working on something. Right now I have three writing projects going at once so sleep is out. It's fine though. I'm used to it. I've gone actually longer than that. It can be a trip at first and then once you hit a certain point, it's like you get this feeling that has you... I can't explain it. It's just sweet!!! Then you get this burst of crazy stupid energy and creativity; it's the best! Problem, you snack more than you should. I'm usually a healthy eater however when I'm not sleeping I want nothing but sweets and snacks. I'll do some yoga in the morning after I meditate. He'll be alright.

    • http://twitter.com/Mylenne007 Mylenne Shindou

      OK, but he don't feel alright now, plus, you don't have to work with a lot of people and so many decisions in 3 days, so many people waiting for you, so please, don't compare yourself with him.

      • Jacqueline

        Actually, I do work with a lot of people. Plus, I'm not comparing myself to him. I can relate to him. There is a difference. Mind you, you shouldn't speak about what you think you know about me. I can only tell you my experience of what's it's like to be up for 3 days. Honestly, I've been up for more than that just this week. Yet, don't YOU presume to know about my life and the responsibilities and stresses that I have on me. Don't have a cow, man. Chill. Leave the drama at the door. Check yourself.

  • pascha120

    I wonder what the situation is with this MV right now b/c there could be a chance that GD had already come up with a solid video concept for the MV way before this KMRB law came up. Now that KMRB is here to stay maybe everyone involved with GD's MV is scrambling every which way to try and change/re-shoot things for the video to comply with the law.

    Poor guy. I just hope the end result of the MV comes close to what GD wanted or something even better if it has had to be changed.

  • topforever91

    GD <3 <3 <3 HWAITING BB

  • Jeannie

    Please calm down. '멘붕(menbung)' is the abbreviation of '멘탈(mental) 붕괴(bung-gyoe, collapse)', a kind of comic coined word. 'Mental breakdown' sounds too serious and dangerous, but the two expressions have much different connotations. For example, even when your friend tease you in a funny way, you can say "I'm in the state of 멘붕".

      thx for the interpretation. :D
