TS ENTERTAINMENT 
B.A.P's label/management house

TS ENTERTAINMENT is located in Hannam-dong (Yongsan-gu) in Seoul.
Welcome to TS ENT! The recording studio and dance practice room can be seen in some episodes of "Tadah! it's B.A.P". Also, their dorm is located for about 1 minute from TS and can also be seen in Tadah!
If you are planning a trip to Korea, and that you want to visit TS Entertainment, we personally suggest you to take a taxi to go there, as it's pretty hard to fint it. (Taxis in Korea aren't expensive.)
Do note that you CAN'T enter in the building, even if the doors are not locked. The staff will NOT appreciate and if you're wishing to see B.A.P there, be prepared to wait long hours outside and keep in mind that the boys don't specially want to be surrounded by fans when they come in and out. 

Here's the full address in hangul and romanized: 

TS Entertainment | 140-894 서울시, 용산구 한남동, 788-6 3South Korea

B.A.P STAFF
- B.A.P have two managers - Manager Kang (who manage their career in Korea) and another manager, a girl, who used to live in Malaysia before. She work to brings B.A.P in others countries.
- B.A.P's stylists work for London Pride. B.A.P's hair and make up stylists work for Jenny House.

- The MATOKI has been created by a company called "CHALLA BROS"
- There's also the FAN STAFF, who work for BABYz at broadcasts, concerts or fansigns. They can also give presents to the boys. They are actually a good intermediare between the fans and the boys.
- B.A.P's production house is CJ E&M (produces CD, concerts, etc.)

CAN I SEND GIFTS? 
In 2014, the fancafe made an announcement about sending gifts to TS ENT. B.A.P took the decision to no longer accept gifts from fans for their birthdays. The reason is probably because they receive too many gifts and it just went insane since the amount of fans is increasing by the day. They also said that they prefer when their fans to donate to charity or help those who need it the most. The members think that their fans is their most precious present, and they don't need more.

B.A.P AND CHARITY
B.A.P themselves are also donating/supporting to many charities, including UNICEF, Greenpeace, the Infant Disorder Foundation and more. Yongguk has been nominated for the Shorty Awards in the categories of Activism and Charity. The group has also been the ambassadors of an environmental campaign in Seoul. 

At BYS, we think it's always better for fans to join fanbases' projects and events that is about congratulating the boys for an achievement or doing charity projects, so it prevent the members to be submerged by many gifts from fans.
