Hold up, what? How did this happen? Are they featured in the MV? How are the fans reacting? I can tell you this now. I’m not too thrilled about it. Come check out why photoshop is a questionable creation.
Guys, if the One Direction’s fans (Directioners) thought that The Wanted fans were too much then they have another thing coming. Here’s what went down, so apparently some K-pop fans were looking at One Direction’s new MV. Nothing wrong there I’ve fallen into their traps before, but one scene caught them off guard. One Direction used this photo of B.A.P….
and photoshopped it into this.
We can CLEARLY see that it’s the same picture. The difference is that they cut off Zelo (since 1D is a five people group), changed the color from red to a pinkish color and photoshopped their faces onto B.A.P’s bodies. B.A.P weren’t physically in there, but heck since it’s their bodies, they were….kind of.
A lot of fans are upset (including me) because we feel as if they do not have the right to use their picture. (In fact it’s kind of illegal) Some realistic people are saying ,”Well, Babyz photoshop their pictures all the time, so what’s the problem?” The problem is that Babyz are NOT a popular boy band who has resources to famous photographers who could have taken the photos. We just don’t and we do this for FUN, not to put in a music video where millions of people can view it. Plus this is down right disrespectful. I don’t know what the Directioners are saying, but it’s kind of obvious that they will defend their idols. But there are some K-pop fans that defend this too! It’s kind of surprising. They are saying that since B.A.P are not relevant enough then they can do it. What? So if it was SUJU or Big Bang then we have the right to say how rude it is? But since B.A.P is irrelevant that we cannot express how we feel? That’s stupid, but here’s what I have to say.
This is as realistic as it comes: They (1D) should have gotten a photographer to take their pictures. Period. If you have seen the photo shoot of that picture then you would have understood the work they’ve put in to come across as warriors. Also, it was their VERY FIRST introduction into the public. That’s something special taken how A LOT of rookies debut last year, so you have to understand why we are upset about it. If this would happened to 1D where B.A.P took their photo and photoshopped it, I bet K-pop fans and Directioners would be upset at TS (and B.A.P). I think people should think like that.
***Note: I do NOT hate One Direction nor do I blame them. I just don’t approve of what their people did. Maybe they don’t know of them, but all of this could have been avoided. B.A.P is small compare to 1D, but they are growing.***
We don’t know if TS knows about the jacking of their photo, but to me if they did then the boys would have tweeted about it. Somewhat telling Babyz to look at it and support it, but that did not happen. I know this much for sure that somebody is tweeting this MV to the boys as we speak.
Here’s the MV if you haven’t seen it. Skip to the 2:24 mark.
What do you guys think about it?
