B.A.P Brings in Big Crowds for Its Debut Showcase
B.A.P, which recently released its debut single Warrior, held its debut showcase on January 28 in Seoul. A whopping 3,000 fans gathered for the showcase, proving the potential the group held for its future.
This day, the group performed the four songs contained in its first single album Warrior, while member Bang Yong Guk showed off his pre-debut career.
He performed his duet Crazy with Secret member and label mate Song Jieun, and his duet I Remember, which he originally sang with B2ST’s Yang Yo Seop in August 2011, with B.A.P’s main vocalist Dae Hyun.
The group also seemed to have a unit in the works early into its career, as Bang Yong Guk performed Never Give Up with fellow member Zelo.
According to the group’s agency, approximately 500 fans stayed up the night before in order to get seats in the standing areas which would give them a better view of the stage. Also, despite its taking place on a weekend, about 100 media outlets (about 200 press members from inside and outside the country) fought to cover the event.
Approximately 200 overseas fans were present to prove B.A.P’s popularity overseas as well.
B.A.P made big issues with its debut performance on KBS2’s Music Bank, and could be seen on the top spots of portal site keyword charts immediately after. The group plans to continue promoting its title song Warrior on music shows.
