    The agency prohibited costly gift 'coz didn't want fans to spend too much and not wanted equality among fans and now this ... This not gonna end well.

    In other news, congrat to Music, Aitakatta will get the MV tho she won't have much screentime. Aitakatta is selected the main OST. for the short youth drama Shoot! Love You by gdh. The director is Ping who directed S2 and S3 of the extremely popular youth series Hormones. BNK48's girls together with main cast of the drama will feature in the MV. It's said Ping's oshi is Can.

    S16 was on chopping block due to extremely low CD quality (even worse than BNK's one) but the agency put fans' wrath off very well. The chairman announced that the agency would send the better CD for free.

    Meanwhile, regarding BNK's pin which was scheduled to send out on Nov 6, the agency announced on Nov 8 that many pins had low qualities and rejected thus many customers would face delayed delivery.
    Fans feared the handshake ticket which was supposed to be enclosed into the pin's package would not arrive in time.

    Just scroll over. Thank.

    Yoshimoto's impact
    To make up with delayed pin delivery, Job annouced a random photocard would be given for free.

    Job also gave more details of founder member card. the card was theatre ticket package with promotion freebies. Per each card is 50 times attendances. (A ticket would be 400 bahts.) Promotion freebies would include
    - a shirt
    - a pin
    - a chance to polaroid duo photo with a selective member + autograph.
    etc.

    the card would be effective for 2 years.

    Theatre ticket must be booked online in advance. (So, no walk-in audience? this is hilarious. It is impossible that fans will fill the theatre for many months to come and non-fan will find advance booking too complicated.)

    A fan calculated roughly that
    if the theatre had 250 seats
    if the show played 6 rounds weekly
    if every seats of every rounds were occupied by founder members only
    it would take 8 months for all founder members to use up their quota.

    I also calculated and found that if a founder member attend the show once a week. it would take him 11 + half months to use up his quota.

    Maysa in another dating controversy. Someone posted on an online forum she dated a guy and posted a photo and an alleged Maysa's alternate IG account as receipts. (the thread was deleted.)

    Here is the photo with Tinky Winky pasted over the supposed boyfriend. (I was late and didn't see the original photo)

    Fans discussed how could they be sure it was Maysa when the face was not visible, and even if it was truly Maysa, it couldn't use as dating receipt, they didn't hold hands so they might be friends, since she studying Architecture which was a male dominant field, she must have some male friends.

    The IG account might as well deleted too. It's said on the wall was a photo of a woman laying her head onto a guy's shoulder. It was discussed the woman in the photo might not be Maysa. (faces not visible it sounded.) Also, the account likely was fake. while alternate account was banned by the agency, that account used Maysa's face as display photo. She must be moron showing her face while breaching the rule.

    The pin issue was clarified with this photo

    pins were poorly packed thus there were scratches on the way to the office.

    It was said BNK Show would have 13 ep altogether and it would be another show with another format to replace.

    the handshake event held on 18th November. Official already announcement where the event take place(At JJ mall near Chatuchak market) you can go inside the hall if you have 1 handshake ticket. work just like AKB there are time slot for every members if you want to meet this members you have to wait when there slot open. 1 ticket for around 8-10 seconds. if your friend want Halloween photoset it will sell at this Handshake event too. You can buy photoset at their Digital-live Studio in Emquartier but not every photo set sell there only some EX.Thai costume set or Roadshow set ETC.

    thanks for the quick answer, ok, just another important question, can he just go to the store and buy a copy of the single and it comes with a ticket? or is it preorder only like chara-ani?

    Usually, handshake ticket is enclosed with a goods - CD, Pin etc.

    the CD only made to pre-order.

    Your friend may buy the ticket from re-seller in front of the venue but, the price will be high. (pin+ticket cost 350฿ but re-sold ticket without pin may cost 400฿)

    The mall gate opened at 9:30 am. but many fans will arrive very early to line up to buy photoset.

    BNK and Kaimook went viral in not-very-pleasing way.
    Kaimook was hug by a comedian in a TV show.
    [​IMG]
    and wotas fumed and lashed the comedian. Many hundreds tweets of wotas triggered the public to aware the problem of sexual harassment on girl guests of TV variety shows.

    The production team has apologized Kaimook and the whole BNK for inconsiderate act of a show host via its official twitter account.

    They are actually quite clever in finding ways to get upfront cash.

    A lot of people have said AKS has gotten stricter after SNH, but from what I've seen so far it doesn't appear to be the case?

    Edit: Also has anyone gone to the Bangkapi Mall to see if they can catch a peak of the campus? I know there's probably a baracade around to keep people out, but I remember with MNL a few fans went to check out the area the theater was in.
