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.”
Prior to the release of B.A.P‘s comeback on April 27th, B.A.P members Bang Yongguk and Himchan have released new photos of themselves, giving fans a clear look at their new hair color, and getting crowned as “Namshin-dols,” or beautiful faced idols.
On April 20th, B.A.P released the first music video teaser for their 2nd single, “Power,” soon after revealing the member’s image teasers. The teaser has made fans highly anticipate their comeback, and the new photos of the grunge-looking Bang Yongguk and Himchan have excited fans yet again.
Both males are seen wearing worn and torn up outfits with tattoos painted underneath their shirts, showing BABYs (B.A.P fans) the group’s radical transformation from “Warrior.”
Bang Yongguk and Himchan have both changed their hair colors from their blonde to light purple and black hair respectively. It has also been reported that Himchan has lost 5 kilograms in preparation of their comeback, which can be seen through his slimmer face.
With just 10 days left until their comeback, B.A.P. has finally dropped some clues as to what’s to come with a brand new teaser image featuring Himchan and Bang Yong Guk!
TS Entertainment officially unveiled dates for the group’s comeback yesterday and has updated today with an image of the ’90 line of the group. Pictured screaming at each other against a bright red and neon backdrop, the boys are adorned in body paint that gives off a fierce and savage feel, definitely heightening their powerful images.
More than anything, fans will be happy to see new hair styles, as Himchan has finally let go of the group’s characteristic blonde hair and has gone for a dark black change.
Officials stated, “There are exactly 10 days until the release of the album and their first broadcast. We are now officially beginning their comeback promotions. Slowly, we will be revealing the transformations of B.A.P.”
On the evening of April 2nd, B.A.P made an appearance at the ‘2012 Spring Seoul Fashion Week: the Song Hye Myung Collection‘ show, which was held at Seoul Bangi-dong’s Olympic Hall. Members Yong Guk and Daehyun caught the crowd’s attention with their new dirty blonde hair color, giving off a different feel from their platinum blonde hair.
KARA’s princess leader Park Gyuri recently kissed rapper Bang Yong Guk on the cheek during the latest episode of “LuLu LaLa”, sparking jealousy from comedian Jung Hyung Don.
On January 12th, B.A.P‘s youngest member Zelo shared his first selca to celebrate his upcoming showcase in Malaysia with Bang Yong Guk.

TS Entertainment has just unveiled a picture of Zelo, Bang Yong Guk‘s partner in his new sub-unit.
Although he’s young (born in 1996), Zelo stands at 182 cm (~ 6 ft) tall and possesses a low voice. His specialty is rap, and he’s said to possess good looks that will definitely snatch hearts.
In the photo revealed today, Zelo covered half his face with a big mask, which allowed him to give the camera an enigmatic, if not intense look. There’s an aura of mystery surrounding Zelo, and expectations are rising high for his debut.
TS Entertainment stated, “Zelo is the youngest out of the members who are scheduled to debut, but he is a talented individual who possesses great potential, as he can rap in addition to performing acrobatics and dance. Zelo comes from ‘Zelos’, the god of rivalry in Greek mythology. He was named so because we saw how hard he tried amongst all the hyungs.”
Netizens commented on how the four of them are all competent singer-songwriters. G-Dragon, who recently participated on Infinity Challenge, created a song for the show’s song festival; Jung Yong Hwa has written a lot of songs for for CNBLUE like how rapper Jun Hyung produced songs for B2ST and helped the gain popularity.
Aside from being singer-songwriters, people jokingly commented that what’s also common with them is they all have “YONG” in their names.
