[PROFILE] B.A.P (Best.Absolute.Perfect)

How about we get to know the B.A.P boys before they make their trip into Malaysia? Here we go! B.A.P is an acronym for Best. Absolute. Perfect and how the six members all want to emulate each meaning of the three words as the best, absolute and perfect group.

From strong vocals to powerful rapping skills, B.A.P is best known for their rough and tough, `if you look at me in the eye I’ll crush you!’ image. Apparently bad boys really get the girls going. Even though they have just debuted this year they have a large following as newbies.

Debut Date: January 26, 2012
Official Fanclub: BABY
Company: TS Entertainment

They are in the same company as hip-hop duo Untouchable and girl group SECRET. Bang Yong Guk debuted first as a soloist featuring in SECRET’s Song Ji Eun’s solo song 미친거니(Going Crazy), then continuing with his own single “I Remember” featuring BEAST’s Yang Yo Seob. What good connections! Later on during exam time, to boost up student’s motivation in Korea, Bang Yong Gook teamed up with fellow member Zelo as a duo “BANG&ZELO”, whom are both rappers in the single “Never Give Up” featuring renowned choir group Heritage.

The concept of B.A.P is that they are six aliens from the Planet Mato, who invaded earth in order to save their dying planet. Each member represents one Mato or “bunny” as people perceive them to be lol. The concept was played out in their SBS MTV reality show “Ta-Dah its B.A.P”. There are several humourous comic strips of B.A.P’s Mato characters on the official Matoki facebook: https://www.facebook.com/officialmatoki
