We don’t discriminate
We don’t care about no time and place
We don’t pose don’t pretend
A bad example, the current idols.
We’re just enjoying ourselves what reason do we need

……… Bobby & B.I wrote these lyrics in ‘Rhythm Ta’

If they had just said ‘I’m great’ and said something along the lines of I’m different from other idols they said the current idols are ‘Bad Examples’ angering other idol fandoms.

‘He basically dissed all idols..”

Doing the clock work dance if you’re tone deaf go practice – VIXX was doing the clock dance back then.

When all those puny boyfriends pretend to be strong to a girl like you – Group boyfriend was doing the song ‘A girl like you’

They call me a monster when I didn’t call myself one – BTS rappre – Rap’Monster’

You guys like to be in front of a full body mirror rather than in the underground dungeon – Dissing idols who allegedly care more about their appearance than skills. Others think that he’s referring to idols who come from underground.

If skills were appearance I’m Wonbin infront of bullet proof glass– In Ahjussi Wonbin shoots through a bulletproof (BTS) glass.


During a stage with GD, there was a fan that had a sign that said “I like Bobby more than GD oppa” 

G-Dragon was with him on the stage but Bobby grabbed the sign from the fan and held it in his mouth as ‘fan service’

He’s also had lyrics where he told his sunbaes to not think of his hoobae and don’t act like they know him. Other idol fans are angry that he keeps saying these things even though he debuted as an idol himself.
