'Monster' rookie group B.A.P has held many records for being one of the fastest to hold a world tour.
Since their debut, they showed off a different vibe from most idol groups. Their masculine and charismatic choreography and music created a huge fan base all around the world.
It has only been 1 year and 2 months since their debut and they are already holding their U.S. and Asia tour starting this May.
This 'Pacific' tour will visit 4 cities in the U.S. and continue on the Asia including Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong and more.
Also, just after 1 year of their debut, they held their first solo concert, 'B.A.P LIVE ON EARTH SEOUL' at the Seoul Olympic Haul with 8,000 fans. This was also the fastest record for a rookie group as well.
When asked why they thought they became the fastest, they stated, "It is due to the power of our fans. Like we've said before, our songs may not appeal to the public but we have a very different character that makes us different from others."
An official commented, "Another reason would be that last year they continued to bring out music and have a busy schedule. Because they kept showing their faces everywhere, they gained many fans."
Since their debut, they have consistently brought out new singles and albums with different concepts and styles. They released 5 albums last year and had around 20 songs released by them. Due to their busy schedules, they gained many fans from all around the world.
They also had a very different showcase for their debut stage as 3,000 fans came to see them. They also ranked number 10 on the U.S. Billboard World Albums Chart as well. They even held a reality program that was broadcasted in 8 different countries.
Since their debut to now they have ranked high on various music charts and have shown their never-ending popularity.
According to their agency, B.A.P's goal is to take over the world with their music and their style.
They will become one step closer to their goal as they take on the 'Pacific' tour.
