Newbie B.A.P tries to win over Korea
Newbie boy band B.A.P embarked on its first-ever signing tour yesterday at KT Olleh Square in Gwanghwamun, central Seoul. The six-member boy band which recently released the song “Power” to great success, signed autographs for their fans in Seoul. They will do the same today in Daegu and tomorrow in Busan.
Apart from the signing event the band held when it made its debut with the single album “Warrior” in Seoul, this is the first time the group has toured the nation to meet with fans.
“Despite their hectic schedule, the boys wanted to meet with their fans nationwide. It wasn’t easy fitting the tour in,” said a representative from TS Entertainment. Depending on the success of the events and fans’ demand, there is a chance that additional dates and regions will be added.
Online, too, is where the band is gaining popularity. Its new music video “Power” has garnered more than two million hits since being released on April 26. And according to its agency, the band members have more than 500,000 followers on Twitter between them.
