JYPE releases blacklist updates for GOT7's schedule-related activities

Source: GOT7 / adohhhhh / tuanpics

Do you think a blacklist notice will make any significant change, or should companies (and/or fans?) take more drastic measures in this regard?

Good on JYPE for making an official announcement I guess. I will say, on my first trip to Korea it was kinda fun to go to the cafe outside of JYPE building and Cube building for a chance to see a idol. But we only stayed for like 30 minutes (enough for some fun people/fan watching and a drink). I can't imagine those crazies that wait around to stalk them. That's excessive and creepy.

To your question, I don't think it will change anything. Unfortunately, this fan culture is how idols stay relevant and increase their fanbase in my opinion.

i did the same thing on jinho's birthday a couple of years ago--there was supposed to be a fan video at a specific cube location and i couldn't find the damn thing, so ended up in a coffee shop for 30 minutes....it was cool to go to the buildings, but any longer would have just been creepy :(

For me it was more of a 'I would be happy just to see anyone but not so wild about it that I would chase after the person'.

Story time:When I went, there were some girls that left the JYPE building. It was in September 2015 which would have been right before Twice was set to debut so I'm pretty sure it was them. But there is no one I can remember and it's not like I took a picture. No one paid much attention to the girls walking away either.

The Cube cafe (which is right nearby) was closed for private filming so we couldn't' go in. I asked my friend to take my picture in front of the cafe front that said Cube cafe (because, tourist) and right in front of me walked Sorn from CLC and her manager. I was a little speechless because CLC were still really new and I didn't want to be wrong. I regret not saying something and maybe asking for a picture.

Is this the first time for an official announcement like this? Do other companies do it? Do we really know the timeline for when they all moved out? I know Youngjae did ages ago, but I wonder if most of them being out of the dorms has contributed to this? Neighbors complaints, negligence, etc. I wonder if this is part of having their own JYPE 'team', and if the boys helped advocate for this?

I also thought it was interesting that there was nothing on there about digital stalking, such as harassing their phones.

I don't know how effective this will be, but I support it. Draw a line between private and public spaces and availability. It may be hard to enforce, but it's a starting point. At least in the U.S., it can also be used to help compile a record to be used in civil cases (and criminal.)

I think this will serve as a wake-up call to some but probably not the most extreme stalkers. Until they actually get penalized. They don't think the rules apply to them anyway.

JYPE has actually been doing this for a while. If you end up on the blacklist no entry to I think music shows, fan events, fansigns and I think you are blacklisted from joining official fanclub's. They update the blacklist periodically. They seriously need to do start for SKZ - children are getting mobbed at the airport everytime.

I'm sure it'll have some effect but I think people also need to stop supporting fan sites with photos that are clearly taken from sasaeng activities
