On May 24, they will be holding their first Japan concert, 'B.A.P LIVE ON EARTH JAPAN', at the Yokohama Hall. Although they have not yet officially debuted in Japan, they will be holding their concert, gaining much attention.
News of their concert has become the hot issue amongst local Japan media. Japan's top music ranking site, Oricon, revealed yesterday the news of B.A.P's concert. They stated, "With the average age of 19, group B.A.P will be holding a solo concert in Japan even before their official debut in Japan."
They continued, "Their appearances on reality show programs before their debut will be aired in 8 countries. Their hip hop sound and acrobatic dance moves have gained much attention and have won them the rookie award in Korea."
A Japan official commented, "Although we had only posted an announcement about their concert, we have been receiving numerous calls from fans, shutting down our server. It seems that the fans have started to hear news about this and cannot contain their excitement."
Many other top sites such as Yahoo Japan, Billboard Japan and more have begun to spread the news of their concert.
B.A.P has also won the '2012 J-Pop Asia Music Awards' rookie award and had around 500 Japan fans visit Korea to attend their Korea solo concert as well.
On the other hand, B.A.P held their first solo concert, 'B.A.P LIVE ON EARTH SEOUL' in Korea this past February. They are currently back with their second mini album, ONE SHOT.
B.A.P debuted in 2012 under TS Entertainment and is known to be 'monster rookies' because of their quick rise to fame.
