[K-Pop Battle] B.A.P’s Zelo vs. 2PM’s Chansung
Last week, we matched up hip hop heavyweights LeeSsang’s Gary and Epik High’s Tablo for our weekly K-Pop Battle, but this week, we want you to weigh in on a different set of K-Pop giants.
It’s the battle of the Big Babies this week as we pit the towering maknae members of idol groups B.A.P and 2PM against each other to see who our readers think is K-Pop’s ultimate oversized idol star.
Zelo is all of 16 years old, making him the youngest member in B.A.P, but the 183 cm tall idol star doesn’t fall short in any other respect.
His B.A.P big brothers may like to baby him, as is seen during the group’s playful performances of Crash, but leader Bang Yong Guk shows us holding a baby like Zelo is no small task.
Don’t underestimate the maknae, however, as he boasts impressive dance skills and has the power to attract 1,000 Twitter followers with one photo.
Still, as you’ll see in the clip below, Zelo knows how to milk the cute in front of his fellow B.A.P members and Secret nunas.
Standing tall at 184 cm, when Chansung made his debut with 2PM in 2008, we had a hard time believing he was the youngest member in the group.
His sharp facial features and model-type build were also uncharacteristic of the baby-faced, scrawny maknae image of most rookie idol stars at the time of his debut.
But don’t let his tall, dark and handsome exterior fool you. Chansung is not only a closet cat lady(?), he knows how to turn on the cute when necessary.
Which oversized maknae is your favorite? Let us know by voting in the K-Pop section!
