The first band that I would like to about is my favorite band and I know that I already talk about them in my first post but what I would like to talk about now is about them and how they became who they are now. I would also like to talk about the way that they music influence my life.
The first thing that I would like to explain is how the name B1A4 was created. Well the reason behind the name is not very creative. Their five member on the band and one of the member is a type B blood and the other four are blood A type. This is the meaning behind the name B1A4.
The group debut on April 23 2011. The group was introduce to the public by webtoon. The webtoon release on April 11 made many believe that the group was mixed gender group. The reason being on the main character of the webtoon Anna. This was later proven to be a mistake made by many. On the same day that the webtoon introduce the guys WM Entertainment introduce photo of the guys. The first tease of single “O.K” with was their debut single was on April 19. Later on April 21 the full music video was release and the group made their debut on April 23. They made their debut on the stage of South Korean music show “M Countdown” by network Mnet.
