[NEWS] 140313 B.A.P on Their Popularity in Europe: “There’s an Appeal in Our Unique Style”

Among the different K-Pop idol groups, B.A.P is especially popular in Europe. The group was recently asked why they think that is.

On March 9, at the press conference for “B.A.P Live on Earth Seoul 2014,” member Daehyun said, “I think there’s an appeal in our unique style, and I think people like our masculine and powerful performances.”

B.A.P’s agency TS Entertainment said, “As B.A.P hasn’t been to Europe yet, it’s hard to tell, but there’s definitely a highly positive response to the group there. We should be able to get an idea of their popularity during this world tour.” For this year’s world tour, B.A.P will be visiting America, Europe, Oceania, and Asia for a total of 20 concerts. In Europe they have decided on visits to Germany and France, and they will be adding other European countries to their itinerary at a later date.

B.A.P has achieved some impressive feats in Europe, placing in the top 10 of the iTunes Hip-Hop Album Charts for various European countries. In July of 2012, the group’s first mini album “No Mercy” was second in the Norway/Finland iTunes Hip-Hop Album Chart. In February of 2013, with their second mini album “One Shot,” the group placed second in Sweden, third in Norway/Finland, eighth in Greece, and ninth in Germany. Moreover, B.A.P won 4 awards at Germany’s Remarkable Awards last year, and up until this past February, B.A.P maintained a spot in the top 10 of Germany’s K-Pop chart for 25 months with “One Shot.”

On their upcoming international performances, B.A.P leader Bang Yong Guk said, “We haven’t even completed half of the goals that we had when we debuted. Now, rather than specific goals, we’re putting more importance in our own development and growth as a team. We’re taking it one step at a time. Ever since our debut, our dream was to meet with our fans from around the world as artists. We want our music and our message to be known to the world.”

[NEWS] 140306 B.A.P was Actually Named After the Food

In a recent recording of KBS’ Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook, the B.A.P members shared that ever since their first number one win, their food expenses have doubled, much to everyone’s happiness. 

“Our group name is actually bap (rice or meal). We went to check everyone’s fortune and found out that there’s no water in our future,” explained the B.A.P members. “We tried to think of a word that would go well with water, and bap was it.”

Other names in the running included Hot Shot and Hot Boys, but the members were satisfied with B.A.P. 

Meanwhile, B.A.P put on a perfect performance of Shinhwa’s Wild Eyes as well. The show will air on March 7.

[NEWS] 140222 B.A.P to perform and B1A4 to collaborate with Song So Hee for traditional Korean music special

The press conference for KBS 1TV's 'K-Pop Merge Paths with Traditional Music' took place at the KBS annex building in Yeoido on February 21.  At the press conference, it was revealed that there would be a collaboration stage with B1A4 and Song So Hee, who is currently garnering a lot of fame for being so young yet so talented in the traditional Korean style of singing called pansori.  B.A.P will also take part in this program.

The production team said, “We chose B1A4 because they are a trending idol group while one B.A.P member specialized in traditional Korean music.  We tried to stay professional in that way.”  It appears they are talking about B.A.P’s Himchan, who had attended the National School of Traditional Music.  

Song So Hee said, “I am shy around strangers, but they thoughtfully took care of me so that it was comfortable during practice.  I was happy that B1A4 would be my first collaborator.”  She then chose B.A.P as another idol group with whom she wanted to collaborate, “They say that there is one person in B.A.P who specialized in traditional Korean music, so I want to try a duo with him.  I think it would be refreshing.”

B1A4’s Jinyoung and CNU were also present at the press conference.  Regarding this collaboration, they said, “We saw her a lot in CFs.  We thought she was really pretty, so we wanted to meet her; if anything, we feel more honored.  Truthfully, it was a bit awkward at first.  She seemed really averse to being around strangers.  We will talk more and then have a fun performance.

This program will combine the two unique musical styles of Korea, K-Pop and traditional music.  It will be a very fascinating and interesting merging indeed!  Make sure to check it out on March 2.

[NEWS] 140208 B.A.P open up about their image transformation and possible tour plans for their comeback

B.A.P returned to their BABYs with their first full-length album ‘First Sensibility' and opened up about the hard work and dedication that they've put into their comeback.

During a backstage interview with Star N News at February 7th’s  ’Music Bank’, B.A.P shared, "Our first full-length album came out. With our album, which all of our members put a lot of care into making, we hope that many people enjoy listening to the various songs."

Himchan shared, "First off, we worked hard to make an image transformation for this album… There are a lot of love songs included in the album, we tried to express different feelings and showcase our individual colors in sad, happy, and even playful love songs. The lyrics in particular are well-written in a way that’s not difficult [to understand] and easily relatable."

"To be honest, we can’t say that it’s easy… We needed to transform our image, so it was difficult. But we are thankful that many like it. But in terms of what suits us better, I think [our image/concept] now suits us better."

Youngjae
 shared, "Jongup dances from start to finish this time. The other members have resting parts in the middle, so there is some leeway. Because Jongup has to dance from beginning to end, he is probably having a more difficult time." Jongup responded, "It is difficult."

Bang Yong Guk shared, "Although no specific plans have been made yet, we might have a tour this year… If we were to do a world tour this time, I want to go to the countries we haven’t been before."
