B.A.P’s Bang Yong Guk tweeted a photo of himself on February 28 with the caption “Just do it.”

We see what you did there, Bang Yong Guk. Clever!

have an idea, what is he doing? I don’t know your opinions. but as what I see, he was trying to pose like he was strangling Christiano Ronaldo casually using his finger. clever Bang.. clever..

Himchan tweeted a selca on the same day, bearing good news for his fans with the message, “I have some great news. I’ll see you at the fan signing. I miss you ^.^!”

Concerts and fan signings, there’s no stopping B.A.P!

okay. He will attend the fansign. Did he sufficiently recovered his finger?

 

B.A.P’s Jong Up Puts Zelo Up For Sale

 

three days ago there were pictures of Jong Up with playful images containing Zelo was sleeping on the trolly. haha, maybe he was too tired that he did not know the place well. He wrote comments like “Selling a limited edition of Zelo. Pu.. Quantity: 1. ”

Meanwhile, B.A.P’s Zelo appeared to have knocked out early (perhaps in preparation for B.A.P’s big concert later that day), as Jong Up tweeted a photo on February 24, writing “Selling a limited edition of Zelo. Pu.. Quantity: 1.”
We’ll take one of those, thanks.

[Concert Review] B.A.P Invades Earth in the Friendliest Way Possible

2013-02-25 13:47  l   CJ E&M enewsWorld Grace Danbi Hong

The B.A.P members proved that they were super rookies, earning more than 20 awards, with eight albums in the span of one year.

But despite all of these accomplishments, something still felt incomplete.

That is, until March 23 and 24, when B.A.P held its first exclusive concerts, Live On Earth Seoul, a feat that few rookies are able to accomplish.

We were lucky enough to make it to the concert on the first day, when dedicated fans caught the first train of the day to start lining up for the concert goods at 6 a.m.

We met a couple of overseas fans as they found us in our B.A.P poster giveaway event, and their eyes were literally sparkling as the anticipation grew for what would happen in the next two hours.

The concert began with a special video, explaining that on earth there were a lot of “Pain & Crying,” so the Supreme Commander of Planet Mato sent six Matokis to Earth to get rid of the problems. A UFO descended down on the stage and the six ‘aliens’ arrived with loud cheers from the fans as B.A.P started with the first song, Warrior.

Warrior quickly followed up with What the Hell and No Mercy. Daehyun and Bang Young Guk tried to slow things down with I Remember (but Bang Yong Guk dropped the Korean F-bomb, causing everyone to grow wilder), soon followed bySecret Love by all six members, including Himchan, who appeared with an arm cast and a sling.

After singing Voicemail and Rain Sound, the B.A.P members finally addressed the fans and introduced themselves. Though the members didn′t speak much during the concert, the silliness during this time had the fans roaring in laughter.

Himchan made up for his lack of performing (due to his hand injury) with his famous crazy-look-in-the-face expression and Bang Yong Guk posed as a muscleman, perhaps as a preview to what would happen later in the night.

Still rookies, the members were shy about talking to the fans, but nonetheless, every action and word had the fans pouring love and support to all six members that night.

When the microphone was passed onto one fan in the audience, she asked when Himchan’s arm would get better. Himchan started apologizing for his broken hand, saying he’s read all of the messages he’s been receiving, especially since he has nothing to do now.

He added that he’s so thankful for the support and love he’s been getting during this crisis and hoped to be on stage really soon.

The first talk soon ended, leading to the next performance, a very special one where Dae Hyun and Young Jae began singing Jessie J’s Price Tag.

Then Zelo and Jong Up appeared on stage, surrounded by back dancers, breaking down to Cali Swag District’s Teach Me How to Dougie, but that was only a preview because the song quickly transitioned into Kriss Kross’ Jump, literally getting everyone in the stadium to jump along with them.

The energy continued into Dancing in the Rain, Stop It (Zelo’s butt shake as the highlight), before the members left the stage and there was a surprise dance cam, where the cameras panned the audience, asking them to dance.

The Supreme Commander return to ask fans if they were happy, before leading into a video, showing footage of war, environmental destruction, poverty and starvation. The mission of the six Matokis were to help fix these issues, and right on cue, B.A.P returned to the stage to perform One Shot, complete with the pushup dance.

The members began performing the songs from their newest album, like 0 (Zero) and Punch, but then the hall turned pitch black and Bang Yong Guk took the stage, performing his self-composed song, Sacramental Confession.

Just then, two dancers, dressed in black, snuck onto the podium where Bang Yong Guk was standing and ripped off his shirt, revealing the abs that everyone and their mothers have been waiting for.

Muscle Man Bang Yong Guk finished off Sacramental Confession shirtless and fulfilled the promise he made with his fans, bringing the loudest screams yet.

The collaboration stages with Broken Valentine proved to be a highlight of the night, mixing both B.A.P’s and Broken Valentine’s colors flawlessly in Fight for Freedom, Unbreakable, Never Give Up, and Power.

Then the members puckered up to the camera, sending kisses everywhere with 3OH!3’s My First Kiss while getting their aegyo on and teasing the fans by lying on the stage.

Before we knew it, the end of the concert arrived as the B.A.P and Broken Valentine members all said their good-byes while singing Goodbye.

Fans started to blow their fan whistles and one particular fanboy yelled ‘encore’ so loudly that his voice echoed in the entire stadium.

Of course it wasn’t the end, as B.A.P returned to the stage to deliver Coma off of its new album.

But just when it seemed like it was all over, Bang Yong Guk announced that Zelo had something special to read, while the other members left Zelo to take on the stage alone.

The youngest member pulled out a letter and began reading it aloud, addressed to his parents. As he thanked his parents for supporting him through this hard but amazing journey as a singer, Zelo began to sniffle, then weep, then full-on bawl, making the fans shed tears as the Giant Baby broke down in his love for his family.

The B.A.P hyungs returned, teasing Zelo and calling him a crybaby, and to pick up the teary atmosphere, the boys ended the concert with an exciting performance of Crash, where the members took hats and signs from the fans. Zelo, forgetting his tears from five minutes before, skateboarded down the stage, much to the fans′ delight.

Once the song ended, the boys thanked the fans once more and did a formal bow.

And then it finally ended.

Now, in all honesty, the B.A.P Live on Earth Seoul concert was not perfect.

There could have been better music transitions and more fan interactions (although B.A.P said at the press conference that this concert was more about the music and less about the talking), but that’s not to say the concert was not enjoyable – because it certainly was.

The smiles on those fans’ faces seemed worth the long hours of effort put into the album and the year of never-ending promotions.

We tend to forget that the B.A.P members, after all, are still rookies in the game with so much to come in front of them. This concert was just a baby step taken, and in that sense, the concert was amazingly successful.

If this is a preview of what B.A.P will bring in the future, we’ll gladly anticipate it with open arms.

“This boy is taking the time to express his gratitude towards his parents, while being flooded with emotions. It’s already hard enough for a person to speak their mind let alone from their heart. How and why could anyone dislike this video? And Zelo, you go ahead and cry you’ve worked hard for your dream, now your living it. And with those tears of sorrow they will become tears of happiness!”

Bang Yong Guk kept his promise of baring his abs!

B.A.P held their 1st solo concert ‘B.A.P LIVE ON EARTH SEOUL’ for two days on February 23rd and 24th. Bang Yong Guk had promised to bare his abs if B.A.P won rookie awards.

Well, the boys swept 13 rookie awards, so he kept his promise and tore his shirt off during his solo stage to the delight of all the fans, revealing his perfect abs. This was the first time Bang Yong Guk had completely gone topless for his fans, so he made his fans swoon with his body.

Hopefully, B.A.P will soon be holding solo concerts in your country so you can see his abs in person, too!
