YG Entertainment has been on a roll lately, introducing 2 new rookie groups, WINNER and Team B (iKON) during a short span of time. Let’s get to know more about these new groups!
True to the lyrics of EvoL‘s debut single, We Are A Bit Different, they rocked the stage and turned Klang Parade’s launch event into a party. Fans were out of their seats, singing along and cheering for their favourite group, enjoying the live performance despite some problems with the sound system.
Six-member K-pop boy band B.A.P (which stands for Best, Absolute, Perfect), brought the house down with close to 300 screaming fans in their first performance for MTV Sessions held at Resorts World Sentosa’s state-of-the-art Waterfront Studio last night. Members Bang Yong Guk, Zelo, Him Chan, Dae Hyun, Young Jae, and Jong Up took the MTV stage and wasted no time showing why they were deserving of the audience’s enthusiastic screams and cheers. Performing against a backdrop of flashy video effects and dozens of stage lights, the group pulled off an exclusive showcase of their songs in an up-close performance, consisting of “Excuse Me”, “Hurricane”, “Where Are You?”, “Lovesick” and “ 1004 (Angel),” which left fans almost hyperventilating.
Cheers! Another giveaway from K-popped!
