B.A.P.’s pre-debut SBS-MTV reality show to air in eight countries

Earlier, B.A.P. revealed that they would be starring in SBS MTV’s reality program, ‘Ta-Dah, It’s B.A.P.’.

The group has just shared some additional great news — ‘Ta-Dah, It’s B.A.P.’ will be broadcast through local MTV channels in China, Japan, Taiwan, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Singapore!

The level of anticipation is high for their reality show, since Big Bang set the precedent for such programs with ‘Big Bang the Beginning’. It’s rare for a rookie group to be given such love prior to their debut, and it’s only likely to increase as the days narrow down to B.A.P.’s debut later on this month.

As previously revealed, the reality program will take on a different format, as the boys will play the role of aliens from another planet who are working to become stars and take over the world. SECRET‘s Hyosung will be making a surprise appearance as the deliverer of missions.


Alexander opens up about going solo & hopes to work for the UN

Singer Alexander has finally launched his solo career, and he’s gaining attention not only in Korea and Japan, but in Malaysia as well. The star sat down for an interview with Malaysia’s ‘Straits Times‘, where he talked about going solo, finding his own performance style, and his dreams of working for the United Nations.

The article begins with Alexander’s thoughts on being able to express himself more as a soloist. As a member of U-KISS, I had to conform to the image of the group, in terms of songs and concept. Now that I’m flying solo, I get to represent what I believe in and what I love about music, he said.

He added, It’s fun to show fans my personality and colour. I told my agency the image that I wanted to portray, and it helped me find the right producers for my songs.

Later on, the reporter brought up his fluency in several different languages, including English, Cantonese, Korean, Japanese, and Portugese. Alexander revealed that his interest in languages comes from his family background — his father is Portugese-Chinese and his mother is Korean.
