After releasing a brief music teaser this week, Block B has just returned with the repackaged version of their second album, ‘Welcome to the Block‘!
F.CUZ recently met with reporters after completing their first comeback stage and talked about how they’re feeling having finally returned after a year and five month long hiatus.
Having returned with a strong new comeback track titled “Power“, the boys of B.A.P. have been making their rounds on the first week of comeback stages.
After ‘Music Core‘, leader Bang Yong Guk sat down with reporters to share his thoughts on the group’s comeback.
Bang Yong Guk began, “It’s not something we’ve been preparing for a long time for, but we did work really hard to show improvement for our fans. This album is extremely meaningful for us in that way.”
He continued, “Compared to our debut track, ‘Warrior‘, our choreography has gotten a lot more fierce. We probably rehearsed longer for ‘Power’ than ‘Warrior’ since there were a lot of complex, detailed moves we had to pay attention to. And since the choreography gets violent at times, the members would bump into each other often. It hurt a lot, but it was really fun.”
Big Bang once again proves that they are the kings of K-Pop.
Their fifth mini-album ‘ALIVE‘ has been acknowledged for its strong staying power, as “Fantastic Baby” still remains on the charts 10 weeks after its release. ”Fantastic Baby” is #8 on Melon, #9 on Mnet.com and #10 on Olleh Music.
Representatives from the music industry remarked, “In the music market, new albums get shuffled around and the life span of songs on music charts are extremely short. There are many songs that seize the #1 spot in real time, but there are very few that remain within the Top 10 for more than 2 weeks.”
“Big Bang’s long 2-month run is truly a rare sight,” they continued.
Big Bang’s hits “Blue“, “Fantastic Baby”, “Bad Boy“, “Ain’t No Fun“, and “Love Dust” all ranked within the Top 10 on the various Korean music sites.
