For B.A.P‘s 200th day, Himchan wrote a letter for the fans.
On the 12th, on B.A.P’s offical fan cafe, a picture of a handwritten letter by Himchan was uploaded. The letter has been gaining attention for showing off the singer’s clean handwriting.
The letter reads,
Time has slowly passed as we started to get to know each other. One day then two days passed to become 200 days. Do you think we know one another a bit now? I think I’m starting to understand the Babys out there. ^^! You know that we have more time to look forward to right? You know any relationship is bound to end. But I believe that we are in an unbreakable (romantic) relatonship! Therefore, let’s make one memory after another together BABY <3
I love you guys <3
The letter reveals Himchan’s strong feelings for his fans.
In related news, B.A.P is promoting their first mini-album ‘No Mercy‘.
On the August 5th airing of MBC’s radio show ‘Younha’s Starry Night‘, Bang Yong Guk and B1A4‘sCNU hosted the corner ‘Four things your man and my man don’t have’.
The corner, based on ‘Gag Concert‘, has the four guests listen to a fan’s comment and honestly reveal what they do not have. In particular, Bang Yong Guk, who was revealed to not have aegyo, was requested to sing “Three Bears”.
After asking “Do I really have to sing?“, Bang Yong Guk sang the children’s song. When he received countless rebukes, he re-sang the song in his normal voice, but was stopped when Himchan remarked, “Do I have to stay in the same [place as him].”
With his previous examples of aegyo, fans have told Bang, “You don’t have to show us aegyo anymore.”
Check out the clip of Bang Yong Guk’s “bad aegyo” below, and let us what you think about it.
> TS Entertainment warns fans to watch out for businesses scamming with B.A.P. related products
B.A.P.‘s growing popularity overseas seems to have brought about not just success for the group, but also some unfortunate circumstances.
On July 27th, officials of TS Entertainment expressed their concern to allkpop over the selling of illegal B.A.P. related products overseas. Officials asked fans to make sure that they double check their purchases to avoid being scammed.
Companies were apparently using B.A.P.’s name, which is definitely on the rise as the boys rank at the top on various international music charts, to sell vacation packages at higher prices, promising to take fans to their Taiwanese showcase scheduled on September 22nd. One of the plans included in the itinerary is a ‘greet B.A.P. at the airport’ event, making for quite the dangerous situation should it not be handled properly.
Officials recognized that it wouldn’t be B.A.P. put in danger’s way, but rather their fans. They expressed, “We’re afraid of our fans being harmed through these illegal products. We hope that this is an opportunity for us to alert these companies that their unethical business practices will not be tolerated.”
