Rapper and Feel Ghood Music founder and CEO Tiger JK has responded to fans’ concerns for BIBI.
Solo singer-songwriter BIBI recently held a couple of live broadcasts, one of which caused concern for her fans.
BIBI is beloved, especially due to her no-filter personality. Yet, she recently opened up more than ever during an Instagram Live, and it caused great concern.
During the Instagram Live, BIBI expressed frustration that she was so busy that she couldn’t even wash her makeup off and had not been resting well for days.
I’m just acting like I’m doing well, but I’m f*cking done, I’m f*cking done.
Her mention of long hours was already concerning, but it was especially alarming when BIBI cried and mentioned potentially committing suicide. She said she didn’t know what was next and that maybe she would “kill [herself]” before repeating how exhausted she was.
In the live broadcast, she nearly fell asleep multiple times. Additionally, she had tried contacting her manager with no luck in an attempt to find out if she could remove her makeup despite her schedule.
#BIBIDESERVESBETTER please i hope the company would give bibi a break or let her take a proper rest, it’s so fucked up that she can’t even do simple things like taking a nap just because the amount of work, it’s breaking my heart to see her like that

At the end of the Instagram Live, BIBI expressed, “[she] wishes [she] was not an artist or singer.” Immediately fans took to social media to help her, tweeting the hashtag #BIBIDESERVESBETTER and directing their concerns to BIBI’s label, Feel Ghood Music.
all she ever wanted is to make music, she started when she was studying because school wasn't for her. in 2019 at age of 21 she joined her company, she's 24 now and already tired of everything. wtf. let hyungseo rest.#BIBIDESERVESBETTER @gHoodmusic_ @DrunkenTigerJK pic.twitter.com/J2BVt9EK50

And many fans wondered where the Feel Ghood Music founders Tiger JK and his wife Yoon Mirae were in this situation, considering their relationship with BIBI is likened to a family. Some even compared it to the recent situation with Jessi and PSY‘s P NATION.
I feel like what’s happening to Bibi is what happened to Jessi. When you feel an artist is so busy and always everywhere all the time, they aren’t resting. Both psy and tiger jk present themselves like father/friend ceos when their artists are frustrated or crying 🙃

it’s actually pretty messed up cause bibi said that she and tiger jk has daughter-father relationship and now she’s depressed, overworked, tired, doesn’t even eat nor sleep. that’s fucked up, i hope that they actually will do something and give her more freedom cause every artist

Now, Tiger JK has addressed the situation personally.
Tiger JK released an extended letter written in his Notes app via social media. He attempted to reassure fans of her condition but also expressed he was just as surprised by anyone by the recent alarming Instagram Live. However, he takes pride in not censoring his artists, which is one of the traits many love about BIBI.
He expressed understanding towards her, explaining that everyone has been losing sleep due to the hard work put into the new album. The album itself and its story may be a contributing factor to the concerning nature of her recent live broadcast. Still, he reassured fans that she was okay and that all she does is in done in her own free will. Tiger JK emphasized that he is there for her as not only a CEO but a fan and friend.
Previously, BIBI also attempted to reassure fans and clarify everything in an additional live broadcast.
It’s me. I worked so hard for this album, it’s why I worked hard myself. Stop blaming everybody; I love them.
