Dear Bestfriends,

A lot of Bestfriends have told us about some negative comments upon Boyfriend's WITCH concept. Mainly, the comments are accusing Boyfriend have copied other groups’ past concepts. Since the comeback date is nearing, and also [please keep in mind that] other groups are coming back too; we would like to share our view about this matter.

 

NOTE: We are NOT telling you what to do, but this is just a friendly suggestion.

 

What should you do when you read/hear negative comments about Boyfriend’s WITCH?

 

Nothing.

 

We advise you not to say anything or respond in any way. Why?

 

Reason #1

Aggression only breeds aggression.

We fully understand if you are angry or hurt because you love Boyfriend so much. And because we are human with hearts and our hearts are not made of steel. But let’s imagine how Boyfriend feel if they know that their beloved Bestfriends are angry upon someone else’s comment, thus can trigger more anger and negative situation.

So by doing nothing, you stop the negativity right there.

 

Reason #2

Not all negative comments = haters

It may sound they hate Boyfriend and want to bring BF down with harsh comments. However, sometimes people just say whatever they want to say. It’s not necessarily they have something against Boyfriend.

We are in a social media era where anyone can say whatever they want in public. Maybe they don’t mean to hurt anyone with their words, but somehow they do. Misunderstanding, miscommunication and lack of netiquette add up to the negative side of freedom of speech in the virtual world.

By doing nothing, you don’t pass on your judgment and not contribute to the misunderstanding.

 

Reason #3

Bestfriend is a peaceful fandom.

We are living up to our name! That’s the main reason we love this fandom so much, because we really find best friends and feel like home here. No matter what language you speak, no matter what country you are from. If we can be civilize among ourselves, why don’t we also endorse peace in the entire Kpop fandoms?

 

Reason #4

Let’s enjoy this comeback!

Boyfriend work so hard for WITCH comeback. They want to see us proud of them, they want to see you all cheering on them. Not argue with other fans, not spread negativity. So stop it by doing nothing and move on. Focus on supporting Boyfriend, show them how happy we are to see them back with a different and “adventurous” concept [quote from a nice Youtuber’s comment ^^].

If you see a non-Bestfriend likes Witch, please thank them for the support. Let's spread the love, Bestfriends~

 

Please check the TUTORIAL forum & learn how to support Boyfriend's WITCH comeback!

 

Cheers,

Velisha

Queridas Bestfriends,

Muchas Bestfriends nos han informado sobre comentarios negativos sobre el concepto WITCH de Boyfriend. En su mayoría, los comentarios acusan a Boyfriend de haber copiado los conceptos pasados de otros grupos. Como la fecha del comeback está muy cerca, y también [por favor tengan en cuenta que] otros grupos también tendrán comebacks ; quisieramos compartir nuestro punto de vista sobre este tema.

 

NOTE: NO estamos diciéndote qué hacer, pero esta es una sugerencia amigable.

 

¿Qué debes hacer cuando lees/escuchas comentarios negativos sobre WITCH de Boyfriend?

 

Nada.

 

Te aconsejamos que no digas nada o respondas de ninguna manera. ¿Por qué?

 

Razón #1

La agresión solo causa más agresión.

Entendemos completamente si te sientes molesta o herida porque amas mucho a Boyfriend. Y porque somos humanos con corazones y nuestros corazones no están hechos de acero. Pero imaginemos como Boyfriend se sentiría si supieran que sus amadas Bestfriends están molestas por los comentarios de alguien más, esto puede ocasionar más molestias y una situación negativa.

Así que al no hacer nada, detienes la negatividad ahí mismo.

 

Razón #2

No todos los comentarios negativos = haters

Puede sonar como que odian a Boyfriend y que quieren herir a BF con duros comentarios. Sin embargo, algunas veces las personas solo dicen lo que quieren decir. No necesariamente tienen algo en contra de Boyfriend.

Estamos en la era de las redes sociales donde cualquiera puede decir lo que desea en público. Tal vez su intención no es lastimar a nadie con sus palabras, pero de alguna manera lo hacen. Malosentendidos, mala comunicación y falta de etiqueta se suman al lado negativo de la libertad de expresión en el mundo virtual.

Al hacer nada, reservas tu opinión y no contribuyes al malentendido. 

 

Razón #3

Bestfriend es un fandom pacífico.

¡Estamos viviendo a la altura de nuestro nombre! Esa es la razón principal por la que amamos tanto este fandom, porque en verdad encontramos mejores amigos y nos sentimos como en casa aquí. No importa el idioma que hables, no importa de que país seas. Si podemos ser civilizados entre nosotros, ¿Por no promocionamos la paz entre todos los fandoms de Kpop?

 

Razón #4

¡Vamos a disfrutar de este comeback!

Boyfriend ha trabajado muy duro para el comeback de WITCH. Quieren vernos orgullosas de ellos, ellos desean verlas a todas alentándolos y apoyándolos. No discutiendo con otros fans, no difundiendo negatividad. Así que detenlo al hacer nada y seguir adelante. Enfócate en apoyar a Boyfriend, enséñales lo feliz que estamos de verlos de regreso con un concepto diferente y “aventurero” [cuota de un agradable comentario en Youtube ^^].

Si vez a no-Bestfriend que les guste Witch, por favor agradéceles por su apoyo. Vamos a difundir el amor, Bestfriends~

 

Por favor revisa el TUTORIAL del foro & aprende como apoyar el comeback de Boyfriend, WITCH!

 

Saludos,

Velisha
