AA will be wrapping up their debut promotions this week and will go into a brief hiatus before they gear up for their next round!
The boys plan on making their comeback in February with an upgraded image. It’s been a long promotional cycle for AA, who debuted in October with “Because I’m Crazy” and went on to perform remix versions for year-end shows. The boys received much attention for their professional stage manners and activism with charities.
Until their next comeback, they plan on focusing on individual activities, as they have been receiving offers from variety shows and dramas.
A representative stated on January 3rd, “They’ll be doing individual activities after concluding promotions for their ‘Because I’m Crazy’ debut. They’ll also be preparing for their mini-album comeback in February.”

Rookie group AA has announced that they will be releasing a mini-album in January. They have reportedly collected 50 songs for review, and are in the process of carefully hand-selecting the track that will make their way onto the new album. The boys are also reportedly working on a song with famous Japanese producer, Daishi Dance.
An AA representative informed OSEN during a phone interview December 2nd, “The members will be showing their fans a completely different side of them with this new mini-album. They are diligently going through each of the fifty songs.”
AA will release the mini-album in Korea and hold a fan meeting shortly thereafter. Afterwards, the members will begin to prepare for their official Japanese debut. The members are reportedly working out the final details on a contract with a major Japanese music label.
Daishi Dance who is currently working with the boys remarked, “AA is different from other boy groups. They have their own unique style and their music is also popular. Their addictive and intense, masculine beats paired with their sexy choreography will be enough to capture the public,” expressing high expectations for the group.
On November 21st, AA member Aoora posted a photo of the group’s dorm containing a bunch of gifts sent in from fans on his Twitter.
Along with the photo, the idol tweeted, “Thank you for all the mentions today as well. Let’s start a happy week. Aja aja“.
The picture has all members present including Woosang, Kimchi, Aoora, Juwon, and Hoik. Based on the prominently displayed and well-stacked presents, you can see how well the boys cherish their fan gifts. The boys teased fans with a cute pajama photo with their hands and feet raised high.

Aoora and Kimchi of new boy group AA received some flak yesterday for their behavior on KBS Music Bank.
The boys could be seen trolling –that is, making various gestures and faces– in the background while SNSD was being announced as the winner and also while MC Hyun Woo was giving his farewell speech on the show.
Earlier today, Aoora came out and formally apologized for their behavior on twitter. Aoora tweeted in English,
AA apologize for what we did in KBS music bank yesterday. We were immature and senseless being such a big stage with all senior artists… we’ve respected for all times… Especially, we AA bow our head in apology to 현우 선배님 (Hyun Woo sunbae) who have been greatest MC in Music Bank for a long time… AA regret and reflect for what we did and promise that we will show you decent behavior… AA will do our best not to disappoint somebody who have cared for us.”
AA‘s Aoora is a multi-talented rookie who’s already received high praise from respected figures in the music industry, such asfamous Japanese composer and DJ, Daishi Dance. In addition to his great vocals and rapping, he also possesses the ability to write, compose, and produce his own songs. AA’s debut title track, “Because I’m Crazy”, is Aoora’s own work.
Aoora sat down with Newsen to discuss his past and the road he’s taken to follow his dream.“In high school, I was a model student and the president of my class. We weren’t well off so I studied even harder for my parents. However, I really wanted to do music,” he said.
He continued, “The school I went to had a system where if you don’t attend for 3 days in a row, you are automatically unenrolled from the school. I thought to myself that I have to take the road I want, and ripped up my school uniforms and stopped attending school. My teacher tried to persuade me and gave me 2 months to make my decision. However, in the end, I was unenrolled. I wanted to focus on my musical studies.”
Aoora’s affection for his parents were revealed when he stated, “It was then that I wanted to start helping out our household financially. I wanted to become a [music] producer in the future, so I started taking up part time jobs in the field of video-editing or music. My family is very supportive of me now. My mother was still upset about me dropping out of high school, so I took the GED and got into college.”
