adrivip asked: 안녕하세요 Eun hye, :) I forgot to ask you about the crown headband, there's a chance to get one at the avenue? 감사합니다 :)
hihi :) yes. but you can’t buy at the official goods booth. someone will sell the crown headband around the venue. (not officially.)
Tips for Bigshow.
.Buying the ticket at the venue.
Ticket sales booth is opened 3hours before the concert.
Those are only cancelled tickets. Usually, if you go there 4hours before it begins you could get the ticket. But, as you know, there was really high competition for this time ticketing. And there are not many cancelled tickets. So, I recommend you to get there early.
.Collecting the ticket at the venue.
If you chose to collect the ticket at the venue instead of being delivered, you need to bring your ID and the reservation number. Print your email that you received from gmarket. Only you can collect your ticket. (but I’m not sure for ivips..)
.Do you want to use Baggage storage?
If you don’t want to carry heavy stuff, there will be baggage storage at the venue. It costs 1000 won. But it takes long (it can take 1hour) when you are returned. Also you can use subway coin locker.
.what time does it start to get in?
1hour~1:30 before it begins.
.Do you have a ticket for the standing spot?
If you show the staff your ticket, they will tear your ticket on the dotted line and give you back the small piece of that& the paper bracelet. Don’t throw away the small piece of the ticket! You will have a trouble to get in without this.
And you have to stand in the queue in numerical order. Ask people their number around you.
.They might check your bag.
It depends on your luck. Sometimes they just ask you if you have camera or not but sometimes they check hard.
You cannot bring the camera and food.
.Do you want to take a photo or fancam?
Be careful. You might be kicked out by the guards.
Sometimes they just delete the photo and give you back the camera or phone, but..in worst case, you really can be kicked out. Personally, I don’t take the photo. There are lots of masters. I will leave it to them.
.Bring the water
You gonna need it. Don’t regret.
(And there are not many places you can have a meal around the venue)
Average temperature will be around 2℃.
Don’t wear the thick jumper (or just a jumper) in the standing area. Otherwise, you will sweat a lot.
Usually standing people just wear hood t-shirts (or just simple t-shirts). You can leave your jumper at the baggage storage before you get in.
Subway line 5, Olympic park (올림픽 공원) station, gate 3.
Line 8, Mongchontoseong (몽촌토성) station (it will takes 20mins on foot to the venue.)
Line 5 is closer than line8. I think taking line 5 is better.
Remember ! when you take line 5, there are two directions. Macheon(마천) and Sangildong(상일동)
You need to take the Macheon direction!
Do you wanna buy the BS ticket at Gmarket?
here is what I have been told by gmarket.
if you access ticket sales site from overseas, you will have pop-up error message when you select the spot. And gmarket doesn’t deliver the ticket to overseas.
unfortunately, what they said is that you can’t buy BS ticket from overseas.
-> i phoned again. the other person said you can try. (but they said they can’t guarantee.)
if you manage to buy the ticket at gmarket, they said you need to collect it at the venue.(cuz they don’t deliver you) you will need a ticket number(print your electronic ticket), and ID (passport sth..) to collect the ticket at the venue.
good luck every vips!
but if you stay in korea, you can buy the ticket.
(there will be no blank for Korean ID, its only for Koreans.)
they suggest buying the ticket through Koreans..
if you are not able to try these, then try at the concert venue. (on concert day.)
there will be ticket sales booth at the venue.
i guess..if you arrive at the venue 4-5 hours early, you will manage to get the ticket without a hitch.
but, i can’t guarantee good spot. and there are just few standing tickets.
I was on the phone with yge again. (actually,i phoned for the other reason, but i asked abt vip4 as well..)
This time, they explained to me a lot.
We, vips, couldn’t understand why it was possible for ibj to register official bj but now why ivips can’t.
Yge found out lots of troubles after they let ibj join official bj.
If you join the official fanclub, you can buy the concert ticket before they open the ticket sales and you can have a priority to get in the music shows..etc.
These are the one of the main reasons to join the official fanclub. However, in reality, it’s difficult for ivips to have these benefits. But ivips pay same as kvips. Yge feels sorry about this.
When there is a wrong on your form, for example address, phone number …etc, it’s difficult to correct that not only for yge but also for ivips because there are difficulties to contact each other.
(There are many kvips who struggle with this.. & it’s difficult to correct our information as well.. we need to contact them several times to make sure & it takes long..)
Kvips pay 25000 won to join official fanclub. But ivips have to pay more to be delivered and yge has to charge every ivips differently because the fee is changed depend on where you are from.
And there are delivery problems. It takes more than 3 months to deliver vip box for ivip. and if the problems occur, it will take longer.
such as.. if you are not there or if you have a wrong address, they have to send the box back to korea, and yge has to send you back again. It takes really long, and yge&you have to contact each other. but it’s difficult to reach out each other and make sure everything.
Yge is aware of current situation & what ivips want.
They know about the petition, they know ivips want to keep sending them emails about this.
(they said they are really sorry for they can’t reply every single of you..)
They know you want to be a member of official vip4. They understand your feeling of alienation. they said they are sorry for making you feel that way because they know how much you love bigbang and support bigbang. We talked for a while, about the efforts that ivips have made for bigbang. They deeply appreciated all your love.
I could felt that they are truly sorry about that and that’s why they wanted to answer earnestly.
Regarding all the circumstance, they are looking for the best way.
they are considering opening a fansite that ivips can talk about bigbang and get updated but no fee. They think it’s good to have official forum for ivips so that you can be updated with accurate information and feel sense of belonging.. but..we both agreed that can’t satisfy you…
they are still discussing about this to offer ivips good one..
i phoned yge 1 hour ago.
i asked them whether ‘trying to make the Fanclub for foreigner’ means they solve the problems of joining vip4& let ivips can register official vip4 or they create a separate fanclub.
they said they are trying to solve the problems but they haven’t yet decided what type of fanclub that would be.
i told them my opinion, it’s better to make it as official vip4.
and i also asked them, why only ibj can join the official fanclub without those problems and why not ivips. They kept saying there are some problems and they are trying to solve those. They didn’t answer the question what I actually asked.
and i told them over 3500 ivips have signed the petition so far.
they asked me to tell you guys these and they are sorry but they are trying. and they want ivips to be patient& wait for the further notice.
i made you guys inconvince..
this is my first time using tumblr..so..i want you to understand it..and forgive me ..T.T
here you can see original pics..
