B1A4 was formed in 2011. Since their debut they got a lot of attention, even though they never won on a music show, they did win a lot of rookie awards in 2011 and 2012. And indeed, from their first mini album, we can clearly hear their potential. They are original, cute, handsome and talented. They worked a lot since 2011 to get more success which has paid without a doubt. Those 5 boys definitely bring something different as they can be funny, but also more classical. They make energetic songs and ballads with the same quality. Their choreographies are not very sophisticated, but at least they are easier to follow for all their fans. Recently, they got more success and not only in Korea or Japan but also in Europe. They didn’t come yet, which is sad, but we really hope they will visit their European fans very soon. Japako Music will definitely be there to support them.
B1A4 is a group of 5 members, the leader is Jinyoung who is also a vocalist. He has a lot of charisma and a beautiful voice. He is really handsome and seems to be a good leader. He is also a bit mischievous which is really funny. CNU is a rapper and a vocalist, he seems quieter than the other and looks like a smart guy with his glasses and his attitude. But even though he doesn’t talk much, he is not that innocent and we cannot miss his presence. The main vocalist Sandeul is absolutely funny and overexcited. Of course he also has a wonderful voice and therefore a very talented singer. But it’s also enjoyable to watch him in broadcast as he makes it funnier. The main rapper Baro has this special and low voice absolutely great for a rapper. He is the one with the most charisma, when he is on the screen, he is clearly taking all the place. He is also multi-talented and funny. He seems to be pretty popular as well. The maknae of the band Gongchan, another vocalist, is not showing himself that much and stay quiet most of the time, but he is not really an angel and knows when to come out and show off. He seems smart and attentive. He is handsome and cute at the same time.
B1A4 has released quite a lot of albums in their 2 years of existence. They released a first mini album in April 2011, „Let’s fly“, in this mini album there were already 5 songs, it’s quite a lot for a debut album. In September 2011, they released a new mini album „It B1A4“ with the hit song „Beautiful target“. In March 2012, they are already able to release their first full length album, „Ignition“, which is clearly a demonstration of their success and talent. Then, just before making their very first concert in Seoul in December, they released another mini album „In the wind“ in November 2012 with their famous hit song „Tried to walk“. Finally, they released their 4th mini album „What’s happening?“ in may 2013. B1A4’s current single, “What’s Happening?”, has brought the boys their first ever music show win, making the boys cry for receiving such love and support. As the song brings the boy’s career to greater heights, their music video is continuously gaining views as it shows a more mature yet youthful B1A4 that the fans have always loved. B1A4 is definitely a group who can be chic, fun, & classy, all at the same time.
If you don’t know B1A4 yet, we clearly advise you to check them out because they are really talented and making very good music. If you already know them, then keep on supporting them and show them a lot of love. Once again, we hope to see them very soon in Europe, and maybe making a world tour, as they clearly have a lot of success everywhere in the world!
