I thought it was sweet how touched Sg in particular was by this woman's life. I hope she lived well and has continued to prosper and is in good health.
Yeah, YG was sweet toward her, and actively listening. I'm pretty sure he was still 19 at the time they made that video, 20 years old at the most.

Anyone following the Grammys?? BEEteeEss just lost Best Music Video and Best Pop Duo
This horrible to say but I'm loving that they lost. At any music awards in Asia they scoop up everything, but in the U.S., they are hardly recognized and I'm honestly glad. I'd love to have an international group be popular here in the U.S. and winning awards left and right, but BT5 have such a volatile fanbase, their behavior is so terrible, and their music isn't good enough for us to give them that level of attention. And truly, if BT5 had better behavior, a better fanbase and better music, we 100% would be awarding them more. Despite how it may look to the rest of the world, Americans quite like foreign artists and they have done extremely well in this country's music market.

He's actually a very good listener. No one notices because he can be very abrupt or closed off.

I'm totally cool with JK not doing anything. As an artist, if you don't feel the need/desire to be creative, they you don't make anything. Fans worrying is hilarious. It doesn't mean he's got issues or that the company did something wrong. From his own words, it's obviously his personal choice and he has that right.

I read that blind item that was linked a couple replies after this one. Changed my whole perspective on what's going on.

I'm very curious if this hiatus is really about those slave contracts. Also curious which band members will bend to the will of Hive, and which ones will walk away from that company for good. I think the only members who can walk away from Hive and do so safely at JH and YG. I can't stand JH, but he's the richest dude in that group and he made himself rich, it didn't all come from BT5 and Hive. YG knows how to market himself on his own, and I think his reputation can survive the long-term. Aside from the JJ issue, and that time he pushed a fan (in self defense after she tried to force herself on him), I highly doubt there's much "dirt" on him, and his humanitarian record is too good looking for anything that could be leaked to do great harm to him. Like, let's hypothetically say there's a nude photo or sex tape, I doubt either exists for real but let's pretend they do... I think people would either be like "YAY!" or just really defensive over something so private being leaked.

Vee has the most to lose. Mainly because he's at the top, and it's very easy for someone that high up to come crashing down. He's quite unhinged in how he behaves, so there's gotta be tons of dirt on him, whatever it may be.

When did he push a fan, and what if the JJ issue?

This happened several years ago. A fan at a venue ran up to YG and tried to forcefully kiss him. He shoved her off him. People actually criticized him initially for pushing a woman, not caring that she had assaulted him and he was defending himself. In the footage of the incident, it looks like he's walking after her even after security stepped in to get her out of there. It's an incident that many people side with YG on these days, but a lot of people still act like he was in the wrong.

Regarding the JJ issue, people are always gonna be angry at him over it. He'll never get beyond that incident entirely. It will get brought up in the future as his career advances. How it will impact him remains to be seen.

There's also that time he teasingly said on twitter that if he caught fans not paying attention to him during fansigns that he'd take a photo of them. The thing is, the word for 'take a photo' is also the word for 'hit someone' and non-Koreans took it the wrong way, thinking he threatened to hit fans. Like, come on, this is YG we're talking about, one of the most non-violent people on this planet. People still, to this day, think he threaten to hit fans when he actually did no such thing. He was just being a goofball on social media.
