Hello international Melodies~
As you know BTOB have just had their comeback and it would be really nice if we could get them a win on one of the music programs (especially because it’s Ilhoon’s birthday tomorrow)!!
So for the moment could you please vote for them on Mwave? The link is:
It really doesn’t take long to make an account if you don’t have one. (It took me about 4 minutes)
Once you’ve made an account:
MWave homepage -> MCountDown (top right corner) -> VOTE (left column)
Music programs usually take into account the digital sales most but as an international fan I know it can be rather difficult to stream music from the sites. So as an international Melody please play your part and help BTOB out. Thank you!!
Starting on Monday, thousands of university students in Hong Kong have been gathering at the Chinese University of Hong Kong and Tamar Park (outside the government offices) to protest the National People’s Congress (NPC) of China’s decision to restrict the right to vote for Chief Executive, the city’s highest political leader in 2017.
Article 45 of the Basic Law (Hong Kong’s own mini-constitution implemented after the handover from Britain to China in 1997) states that the Chief Executive should be chosen by universal suffrage as an eventual goal. Time and time again the Communist Party of China have dodged/shut down any democratic progress. Last month the NPC announced that they would continue using the 1200-member committee, consisting of members loyal to the Communist Party, to vote for our CE. THIS IS ILLEGAL. THIS IS SHAM DEMOCRACY AND SHOULD NOT BE TOLERATED.
The sit-in of university students belongs to a movement called ‘Occupy Central with Love and Peace’ and is led by The Hong Kong Federation of Students (schedule and declaration of the strike included). This act of civil disobedience consists of absolute non-violence. It consists of free public lectures offered by university professors and writers on topics like Orwell’s ‘1984’, history of Hong Kong’s struggle for democracy, Ghandi and Martin Luther King, Jr.’s fight to end injustice etc etc. I was one of the students sitting in Tamar Park on Tuesday and Thursday and it was one of the most rewarding, educational and, I must emphasise, peaceful political activities I have ever witnessed.
On Friday, high school students led by the student group Scholarism joined in the protest. They marched to Civic Square, pleading for our current CE to come out of his offices and listen to their requests, just like he promised during his ‘campaign’ in 2012. More and more citizens joined in the protest after work.
The police started cutting off access to Civic Square, which is a publicly owned area. They used shields to form a blockade against the protestors and started pushing them back. When people resisted with umbrellas, they started using clubs and pepper spray on the protestors, who started putting both of their hands up to show they are unarmed. Many students who managed to rush in Civic Square are arrested, including the leader of Scholarism. Many of them have visible injuries caused by police brutality and some of them still haven’t been released from police custody.
THE FIGHT IS STIL GOING ON. PEOPLE ARE STILL CROWDING OUTSIDE CIVIC SQUARE AND TAMAR. Resources are running thin and the police are still threatening violence. Some of my friends are at the protest and they are continuing the struggle despite the risks. It is predicted that the police will escalate their brutality with tear gas, more pepper spray and water cannons against innocent, peaceful protestors, many of them teenagers.

I know tumblr is a US-centric place but PLEASE PLEASE SPARE A SECOND TO REBLOG THIS POST. Hong Kong is a tiny city. We are anything but a formidable force in international politics. The only thing we can do is raise awareness among the world and force our corrupt government to answer to our protests.
PLEASE HELP US.
Feeling so sad today. I’m just a casual fan of ladies’ code, but what they’ve suffered made me cry.
The fact that they are so close with btob and everything make me even sadder… Minhyuk once said that he likes Eunbi the most in LC. That’s how beautiful Eunbi is. And Rise who go to Korea alone like Peniel, was a fixed guest on sstp with Peniel together, she is such a cute and cheerful girl. Ashley who was a trainee in cube and is Changsub’s ideal type, talented Sojung and princess Zuny are all so precious. Although none of the btob members tweeted about this, I’m sure they are supporting the girls privately.
R.I.P Eunbi. Rise and other members, their families, friends and fans please stay strong.
R.I.P EunB. You really are beautiful. Heaven has gained another talented angel.
My blog will be on hiatus to prepare my public exam next year ><
I mean, I will control myself not to be too addicted to BTOB for about 10 months :(
And I promise I will be back after that ^^
Maybe no one cares but just in case that some of you will be curious of where I am or misunderstand that I leave the fandom for another group :)
LADIES’ CODE (레이디스 코드) - I’m Fine Thank You
Stay strong my girls.
You’re in my thoughts and prayers.
