Summary: Born to Beat, or BtoB, debuted on March 22, 2012 with seven members: EunKwang, MinHyuk, ChangSub, HyunSik, Peniel, IlHoon, and SungJae. They first appeared on television in “Amazon (Idol Master Zone).” They were also supposed to have a “Lee MinWoo” in their group, but due to health problems, Cube announced he was not able to debut with them. MinWoo was later confirmed to debut in C-Clown.

I would like to start this band info session with an apology. I’ve been insanely busy with school, and also just got a new job that, by the time I get home, I don’t want to do anything but breathe. o(_ _)o So, I, Redeim, apologize for the delays. Velexa was smart and set up a queue, in order to make me look bad. Ha ha Regardless, I bring you this little gem of one of my favorite rookie groups of the 2012 year! (even though I can’t really name-to-face anyone but SungJae. OTL)

Ugh. What can’t I say about BtoB? I instantly fell in love with them because Insane was so freaking catchy. Not to mention SungJae, who reminded both Velexa and I of Seo InGuk, immediately caught our eyes and even though Velexa claimed him, he was also my original bias. With their second comeback, I fell in love with SungJae all over again, but this time, EunKwang also caught my eye. I love these guys, even when it makes me a pedo-noona to do so. *sigh* These guys have been going, going, going, and I fully support them and wish them luck in their future endeavors!
