(Group) B.A.P (비에이피)
« on: February 12, 2013, 06:35:48 PM »

B.A.P (Korean: 비에이피; an acronym for Best Absolute Perfect) is a six-member hip-hop South Korean boy band formed in 2012 under the management of TS Entertainment. The group consists of Bang Yong Guk, Kim Himchan, Daehyun, Youngjae, Jong Up, and Zelo. On January 26, 2012, B.A.P made their recording debut with the single "Warrior", followed by the release of their debut EP, Warrior in February 2012. Later in the year, B.A.P's performance on October 28 in Changwon, South Korea, was considered by the Grammy Awards to be one of the best moments of 2012.

2011: Pre-debut

B.A.P. was conceived and began promoting in late 2011, starting with Yong Guk, who takes the role of leader in the group. He signed to TS Entertainment and was featured on labelmate Song Jieun's song "Going Crazy". He made a solo debut on August 11, 2011, with the single "I Remember", featuring B2ST's Yang Yo-seob. A second member, Him Chan, an ulzzang multi-instrumentalist, was the second member of BAP to be introduced to the public in the form of an MC for a music show program on MTV Korea, called "The Show". And lastly, on November 23, 2011, Zelo, the third member from BAP to be publicly introduced, was introduced through a collaboration with fellow member, Bang Yong Guk, under the moniker Bang & Zelo. This time, they did it by releasing the song "Never Give Up".

2012–present: Warrior, Power, No Mercy, Crash, and Stop It

In January 2012, the group starred in a reality show, Ta-Dah, It's B.A.P, which aired on SBS MTV.[8] The show focused on how the six members play the role of aliens from a different planet who worked together to debut as B.A.P and invade Earth to help save their dying planet, Planet Mato.

On January 25, 2012, the group's debut single, "Warrior", was released, with MTV Korea describing it as "powerful and charismatic". Additionally, Nancy Lee of Enews World wrote "It appears B.A.P has set out to differentiate itself among the pretty-boy male idol groups currently dominating the K-Pop world with a tough, bad boy image, smashing car windows, kicking up dirt and, you know, doing as boys do." Promotion for the single began on the Korean TV show Music Bank, followed by other Music TV appearances such as M! Countdown, Music Core, Inkigayo and The Show. On January 28, B.A.P held its debut showcase in Seoul, attended by over 3,000 people. On February 3, 2012, the Warrior debuted on Billboard's World Albums Chart at #10. In South Korea, Warrior sold over 10,000 copies in just two days upon its release.

In March 2012, B.A.P released a follow-up single, "Secret Love". On April 16, 2012, TS Entertainment announced that B.A.P would have a comeback with a new album on April 27, 2012. On April 20, TS Entertainment revealed the name of their comeback single, which was entitled "Power" and subsequently released a music video teaser for the song. On April 26, 2012 the music video for "Power" was released on the group's YouTube channel. The following day, B.A.P released their mini-album, Power on various music digital stores. After finishing up promotional activity for "Power" in Korea, the band will be on an Asian showcase tour, visiting Macao, Malaysia, Thailand, and Taiwan.

On June 27, B.A.P released the “Recording Take 2” photo book.

On July 4, B.A.P attended Malaysia's dance contest Showdown 2012 as special guests and performed Power. They also had their first Malaysia Showcase on July 6.

On July 9, B.A.P also released their new song from their first mini-album, "Goodbye" with Matoki Cartoons.

On July 19, B.A.P released the music video from their new first-mini album, titled "No Mercy". TS Entertainment deduced that the release of the physical first-mini album was delayed to the 25th of said month due to printing mistakes. Said album consists of five tracks: "Goodbye" "No Mercy" "Dancing in the Rain" "Voice Mail" and "What My Heart Tells Me to Do".

SBS MTV hosted "B.A.P Day" on August 4, airing reruns of "B.A.P Diary" and "Tadah! It's B.A.P". Undisclosed videos that were recorded by B.A.P themselves were also aired. B.A.P is the third group to receive such opportunity after seniors TVXQ and Big Bang.

On August 30, B.A.P released their repackaged version of their third EP No Mercy, renamed Crash. The two new songs included in the new album are "Crash" and Yong Guk's "I Remember" (feat. Daehyun) along with the five previous tracks.

In early October, TS Entertainment stated that B.A.P are currently preparing for their new single album. On October 23nd, B.A.P released their third single album, titled "Stop It", together with a music video.
