Cube Entertainment‘s newly debuted boygroup BTOB(Born To Beat) was recently in Singapore for their album promotions. Made up of 7 members; Eunkwang, Minhyuk, Changseob, Hyunsik, Peniel, Ilhoon and Sungjae. Decked in knee-high boots and snazzy embellished outfits, they greeted the media with warm friendly smiles upon their entrance.
This being their first time doing an overseas promotion, the boys were pleasantly surprised to be received by a crowd of over 200 fans at the airport. The power of hallyu wave that transcends geographical boundaries, so I say.
Having debuted on 22nd March this year, ther upbeat debut song ‘Insane’ grabbed the attention of many. They also recently released a music video of ‘Irresistable Lips’ which had a kiss scene featuring the visual member, Minhyuk. ‘Irresistible Lips’ was released prior their debut through a sitcom and as the song was very much loved by fans, it was added to their Asia Limited Edition album as a gift to their fans.
Of course the MV became the hot topic as it leads on to women features that they liked and the on-screen kiss. Sheepishly, the boys told us which part of a women attracts them at first sight.
Eunkwang likes girls with thick lips, Minhyuk and Peniel gets captivated by a beautiful smile, Changseob prefers the eyes hence making eye-contact with a lady would be his first move. Hyunsik likes kind girls with a calm personality and to him first impression counts! Ilhoon will look at the hairstyle as it can (amazingly) tell him one’s character. Sungjae likes girls with double eyelids.
When asked about his first on-screen kiss, Minhyuk admitted to being nervous before filming. But once it started, he got into character and could not remember much except he gave his all in the kiss.
With the influx of new groups in the already populated industry, how does BTOB stand out and shine?
Diversity. The different music tastes of each member would be reflected in their future albums. They are also learning to play instruments and and master different languages with the mission of conquering Asia. Currently their aim is to win the ‘Rookie of the Year’ award. So Melodies(BTOB fanclub), you know what to do!
Born in Chicago and fluent in English, Peniel wrapped up with a special message to fans,”It’s really an honour to perform in Singapore. We were really surprised to see many fans at the aiport, as we did not expect that many. We are really thankful and expect a lot from us as we have prepared a lot.”
