Imagine thinking BTS of all people are "struggling" to get CF offers. Anyway, all I've seen in this thread are people offering solid counterarguments backed with evidence and OP being wilfully dense and obtuse like a brick wall. The intention behind this thread is clear as day.
Welcome to the Official Thread for
THE GAZETTE (ガゼット)
The GazettE (ガゼット) is a Japanese visual kei rock band formed in 2002. The band consists of five members:
- Kai (Uke Yutaka) | leader and drummer | birthday: Oct. 28, 1981
- Ruki (Takanori Matsumoto) | vocalist | birthday: February 1, 1982
- Aoi (Shiroyama Yuu) | guitarist | birthday: January 20, 1980
- Uruha (Takashima Kouyou) | guitarist | birthday: June 9, 1981
- Reita (Suzuki Akira) | bassist | birthday: May 27, 1981
Since 2002, the GazettE has become one of the most impactful and widely known second-generation bands on the visual kei scene, earning their first headline performance at the Japanese hall Nippon Budokan in 2006 and expanding to larger arena shows until conquering the Tokyo Dome by 2010. The band went on to play at major festivals across Japan, performing for the first time in Europe on their Pulse Wriggling to Black tour following the release of their album, Stacked Rubbish, in 2007. They embarked on their first ever world tour in 2013, followed by two more world tours with expanded setlists and venues in 2016 and 2019 across 22 cities in 13 countries.
Now in their 19th year, the band continues to evolve their sound and artistry under their self-created company, HERESY Inc.
Their extensive and diverse discography, which can be found on the official the GazettE website, now includes over 20 singles, 6 EPs, 3 compilation albums, and 9 studio albums - 7 of which have all placed in the top 10 of Japan's Oricon Charts.
This thread is for news, announcements and discussions about the GazettE and its members.
Please keep it respectful, and have fun!
I am beyond happy they are still making music over 20 years into the game even after being dropped by YG numerous times, that hasn't stopped their music making. They also tend to attack really serious topics sometimes that Korea does not want to touch with a 900 foot pole in public.
My thoughts exactly. It would never be the same if Epik High stopped making music, and I remember how rough it was years ago when it wasn't clear if they'd keep going. I'm really excited for their new material and glad we get a bit of Zico too - I miss him already!
Epik High has released the full line-up of artists that are going to be featured in their 10th studio album, Epik High Is Here 上 (Part 1). The line-up includes Zico, CL, Heize, Nucksal, Kim Sawol, Changmo, G SOUL, WOO, MISO, and B.I. a.k.a Kim Hanbin.
Check out the teaser for Rosario ft. CL, ZICO.Content embedded from external sources will not be displayed without your consent.

AKP ARMY Questions:
What does your AKP username mean?
It doesn't really mean anything, but it's the name I've been using in all my games since I was a kid.
Why did you join AKP?
I joined the old forum years ago for kpop news, but left for a while because of drama. That never changes as we can see, lol.
Are you joining Bulletproof?
What moment did you realize you were ARMY?
When 90% of the music I was listening to was BTS, and when I started getting back into kpop after a long hiatus all because of them.
How long have you been ARMY?
I checked them out at their debut, but didn't really get into them until Dark & Wild when I got hooked on Danger, Let Me Know and Cypher Pt. 3. I'd say I became an actual ARMY when HYYH Pt. 1 came out.
Who is your bias?
What was the first BTS song you heard?
No More Dream.
What was the first BTS MV you saw?
No More Dream.

Getting More in Depth:
Do you call the members by their stage names or real names?
I mostly call hyung line by their stage names, maknae line by their real names. Even though they're all older than me lol, but I'm more used to hyung line's stage names.
Do you have any ARMY friends in real life?
Yes, a few.
Which member do you feel you are the most like?
Cross between Suga and JK, probably.
