Hello fellow Bombshells,
Please take time to read this amidst it being a long post, thank you.
As all of you know, it’s been a tough time for us fans and it’s pretty clear it will be a while before we see better days. Like they say ‘’after rain there’s always a rainbow following’’, which means better days will definitely come but we need to have patience for that to happen.
As the leaders (don’t take it in a cocky way- WeLoveBom is the first successful international site specially for Bom) of the (international wise) Bombshell community, we have a task which includes protecting Bom and her image and recently it hasn’t been going well so I- personally as the Admin would like to write a few things about the issues and I hope Bombshells will follow simple rules.
Now after Bom’s scandal, there’s not much positivity surrounding her and it’s heart breaking for us fans but we aren’t her fans for nothing- we have been here from day one and will definitely be by her side until whenever. YG Entertainment and Dispatch have pretty much cleared up the issue but for some it’s still not enough and the hate continues but it’s alright we got Bom her back.
So basically staff have been alert on whatever things spread related to Bom and amidst warnings, fans/non fans still spread the things and it simply backfires- something we have been trying to avoid for a while. International fans have been trying to bring back Bom’s positive image by mingling with netizens in Korea but amidst our tries, all things have backfired completely and brought actually more damage- which was not something we went for.
Now many ask why we would bother what Korea thinks and I want to say, 2NE1 is based in Korea- Bom is based in Korea. We- international fandom can say things easily and actually mean it but let’s not forget she is based in Korea, anything happening there is actually affecting her so we need to try hard to get her positive image back up there in her home country. K-Bombshells have been quiet, why do you fans think they have been quiet?
With this post I want to try and avoid these things in the near future and I hope you all cooperate with us. We don’t need more things then we already have on our plate so please understand. Here’s a list which might actually help Park Bom’s image;
- Don’t spread anything related to Bom- at least think twice before you do.
Recently the post about Bom’s stylist was spread around- something we tried to avoid. The results- people actually calling out the stylist which made her put her Instagram account to private mode.
Now we understand some of you think otherwise since the international fandom took her post the positive way- but in Korea it was taken the negative way.
Why would we care about that?
The stylist isn’t based internationally –same like the issue stated above, she’s in her own country- South Korea. Someone that isn’t in the spotlight actually got hate to the point she had to put her account to private mode- all because her post was spread. I’m not blaming this directly at anyone but please reflect. We didn’t just hurt Bom- but we actually hurt the people around her too.
It’s nice how the ones around her she loves dearly actually support her and protect her. In the future if someone does post something, let’s look at it quietly rather then screencapping it and spreading it on social media.
- Don’t spread malicious rumours without a base.
The rule speaks for itself, at a time like this we don’t need rumours to be spread that don’t have a legit source or are neither confirmed to be true. We saw something going around about Bom’s relationship status with the same gender and it’s pure trash and we honestly do question why someone would spread it but on that note please don’t and think carefully about it. If the rumour is not confirmed, keep it in your chamber of rumours.
- If you support Bom, that’s wonderful but if you don’t please don’t bother the ones standing right beside Bom and vice versa.
Basically fandom wars, we have seen plenty happening and I would like to say that if you stan Bom that’s really nice but if you don’t please don’t bother Bom or her fans. Same goes for Bombshells, don’t bother with people that disagree with your opinion. We want love to spread, not hate.
Please do not crop out credits/tags out of fantaken pictures and use them for your own things. This is something not only for Bom fans, but for 2NE1 fans as a whole.
Korean Blackjacks work hard to go to events or places the girls are at and make effort to take pictures and actually SHARE it with the international fandom. Please respect the fan site masters; don’t edit or crop out their logo. It’s disrespectful; please reflect on it.
If it happens again, Korean Blackjacks have already notified us that if it does happen again they will stop sharing their pictures with the International fandom, so please take note and do not crop or edit out their logos.
These are basically the important things we should be cautious about. We don’t need to spread any BS things, we need to think carefully about the things we spread/post- Bom related. We need to be careful as a whole and think about possible things that could happen. At a time like this we need to quietly stand beside Bom and shower her with love, nothing else then that is needed and this way we are protecting Bom- even though we’re not near her we can protect her from a far.
I hope this post shed some light and any confusion is cleared up and I hope many of you follow the things mentioned. We sincerely love Park Bom and we will always be right beside her no matter what.
