One of the fans from DCGD called YG's fan manager to ask about this week's Music Bank schedule. However the fan manager replied by saying Big Bang's going to Japan somewhere in the middle of this week and said they're coming back on November 16. Therefore, there are no schedules this week. Big Bang's staying in Japan until the second week of November for their Japan schedules thus no schedules in Korea until November 16.
However the VIPZ admins called YG and received a reply saying that Big Bang could come back to Korea earlier too (before November 16); YG just gave us the furthest date possible. Changes in the schedule could happen.
So why are the fans mad?
-Nonsense promotions for GD's solo album that GD's waited 10 years for. Only 10 performances on air and only two times on the radio.
-Responding to the fans' requests to make the 'hoodies' with the G-Dragon solo album logo on it but why isn't YG responding to the demands relating to the promotions? Not even a word about these demands.
-Japanese activities, GD solo concert preparations, GD writing songs(for Iris OST album, Japan album and who knows what other albums), GD solo activities promotions, year end performance preparations, MAMA performance preparation etc. all going on the same time. I mean is this seriously possible to do all at the same time?
-Will this happen to YB's solo promotions too? (It is also known now that YB's full-length album will be released the beginning of next year.)
But I think the fans(including myself) are not only mad about the recent incidents that have happened(including this going to Japan thing). It seems like this incident is just a point of 'explosion' for the fans that have been watching what has been going on for these few months(GD solo activities), and even for these few years(Bigbang in general). Seeing what YG has done for the past few years, it does not look like YG is doing their best to 'promote' their artists, but even at times they seem to even do some damage to them.
*Bigbang going to Japan this year was announced early this year. However last year when Seungri was doing his musical around April-May, he did not participate in the Japan promotions. Only four of the members went for promotions and Seungri only went for the really important events(such as the concert). Daesung got to miss out on the Japan promotions for . Is this not making sense only for me?
*Why release the Butterfly MV first when they've said that they've finished making the Boy MV too? G-Dragon's in the middle of the 'Boy' promotions and he's doing quite well. In the end of the Breathe MV there was even a preview for the next movie which was 'Boy'. Why did they release the Butterfly MV first when it would've been the most sensible to release the Boy MV first?
*When GD's solo album was first released there weren't enough albums printed. High demand for the albums but no albums to sell!
*Again overloading their singers with schedules at the end of the year. Well the year-end and Christmas season is inevitable the most busiest season, especially for singers with all their special performances. I don't know if you all remember but in 2007 Bigbang was overloaded with schedules and in consequence Seungri fainted during the concert, TOP went into the hospital too and the other members weren't doing so well either. The fans are worried because this might repeat.(last year wasn't too good either)
*G-Dragon is having a concert in the first week of December. He's planning to come back from Japan on November 16(could be earlier). Will he have enough time to prepare for his concert?
*G-Dragon mentioned in one of his earlier interviews about how he feels like a "song-writing machine". Seriously, why won't YG give their composers a rest? Since 'Lies' came out G-Dragon has been writing songs like crazy(literally). G-Dragon and also all the other members need time to REST to recharge themselves. Big Bang has not had a good rest since 'Lies' came out. (looks like Teddy needs a rest too in my opinion)
*YG IS NOT WILLING TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE FANS!!!! and this is happening again and again.
Seems more like the fans that have been holding everything in thinking "it'll be better next time" have finally surfaced and have finally exploded.
What do you think?

It is true that they're all working their asses off, especially GD who must have so much on his plate right now...I was really surprised that "Hallelujah" was coming out now, and that the MV came out the other day, on top of solo promotions. I don't even know, everything just seems so scattered.
