B.A.P. (Best, Absolute, Perfect)

Summary: B.A.P. (Best, Absolute, Perfect) is a six member boy group that debuted on January 26, 2012.  The members include Bang YongGuk, Kim HimChan, Jung DaeHyun, Yoo YoungJae, and Moon JongUp, and Zelo (Choi JunHong).  They debuted as a hip-hop group and also had a special on a TV Show called “Ta-Dah It’s B.A.P.!” Find their discography here.

Okay, I’ll keep it simple: Velexa and I have loved Bang since he had his solo.  Then he had a comeback and brought Zelo with him and even though Zelo’s born in 1996, (the jailbait alarm has. Been. Freaking. Rung.) We still loved Bang and loved Zelo (At the time, Velexa probably more than I).  Now that they’ve debuted with the four other members, I have no clue who’s who besides Bang and Zelo (not gonna lie).  Immediately, Velexa and I absolutely adored Warrior, and we also love their other songs on the album and can’t wait for them to have a comeback even though they only recently stopped promoting for a slower-beat song called “Secret Love.”
