Petition Closed

iVIPs are the international fans of the korean boy band, BIGBANG. With the cultural growth and the increase of demand in kpop in many areas of the world - Asia, Europe, North America and many others, the number of iVIPs have also been rapidly increasing.

Dear YG,
We have decided to voice out our requests this time, due to the increase number of issues that have been happening in the past years. Bearing in mind the complications that might arise when iVIPs are accepted into the Fan Club, we believe that there should be a way where we can all come to a mutual, compromised agreement.

As you may know, many of us are willing to travel half way round the world to get a glimpse of BIGBANG, take in all the energy that they radiate and give them all the support that we can. However, many of us are limited because of certain regulations like having to be an official member of the fan club. Many of us have also been hearing news from many different sources and as a result, some have turned their backs against BIGBANG due to all these false, unofficial news. All of us have gone through a tough time in 2011, and in the years to come, we hope that we will grow stronger not as 2 different groups, KVIPs and iVIPs, but as a group - VIPs.

Wanting to find a place we can call home, we, iVIPs, are here to request YG ENTERTAINMENT to allow us be a part of the International Fan Club of BIGBANG. For us, it is a support system and a backbone, where we, as fans, could fall back on and a place we can find comfort and confirmation during, both, the good and the bad times. Simply, place where we can belong.

Please do take time to consider this request. And if there's anything at all, please do not hesitate to email us at bbinternationalvips@gmail.com

thank you very much for your kind attention.

Your sincerely,
iVIPs

iVIP란 단어는 대한민국 남자가수그룹 빅뱅의 해외팬들을 대표하는 이름 입니다. 혹은 "인터내셔널 VIP"라고도 부르지요. 요즘들어 대한민국의 문화와 KPOP에 대한 관심이 세계적으로 증가하자 (아시아, 유럽, 미국, 등등) iVIP의 수가 점점 더 빠르게 늘어져 가고 있습니다. 안녕하세요, 양현석 대표님. 요 몇년간 저희 해외VIP랑 한국VIP들 사이에 생긴 일들과 문제로 인해 요구를 하나 하겠습니다: 해외팬들도 공식 팬클럽에 가입을 할수있게 기회를 주셨으면 좋겠습니다. iVIP가 공식 팬클럽에 가입을 하게 된다면 문제가 벌어질수도 있다는 사실은 잘 알고있지만, 그런 문제들이 생기지 않기 위해 YG 엔터테인먼트와 절충해서 어떠한 협정이라도 만들었으면 좋겠습니다. 이미 잘 알고계시다시피, 한국에 있는 빅뱅을 보러가기 위해 먼곳에서 비행기를 몇시간 동안 탑승하고 가는 해외팬들이 무척이나 많습니다. 게다가 빅뱅에 대한 마음, 사랑, 또한 응원은 끊임없죠. 하지만 저희 해외팬들은 공식 V.I.P가 아니란 이유로 규정된 것들이 많습니다. 저희에게는 공식 팬클럽에서 받을수 있는 속보가 이닌, 잘못된 속보나 비공식속보, 또한 루머같은 것들만 전달이되서 문제가될 때가 엄청 많습니다. 그런 이유들 때문에 빅뱅에게 등을진 분들도 많기도 하고요. 2011년에는 빅뱅과 V.I.P한테 상처가 된 일들도 많았고, 이제 부터 평생 빅뱅과 함께할 시간 동안은 iVIP가 아닌.. kVIP(한국VIP)가 아닌... 그냥 하나가 된 "V.I.P"가 됬으면 좋겠습니다. 더 바랄게 없네요, 저희는. 우만의 "아지트", iVIP들만의 "홈"이라는 곳이 있기를 바라며 또 다시 한번 YG 엔터테인먼트에게 부탁 드립니다. 저희 해외팬들이 공식 팬클럽을 가입할수 있게, 아니면 해외팬들이 편히 쉴수있고 안심을 할수있는 공간 처럼 공식 인터내셔널 팬클럽을 YG께서 만들어 주셨으면 너무나도 감사드리겠습니다. 문의나 궁금하신 점 있으시면 망설이지 마시고 bbinternationalvips@gmail.com 으로 메일 꼭 보내주시길 바랍니다. 해외팬들의 의견을 이렇게 들어주셔서 극히 감사드리고, 좋은 답변과 결과를 기다리겠습니다. iVIP들이 올림.
