K-pop boy band BTOB's laughter-inducing parody of the crime drama The New World has become a huge hit.

The parody was revealed on the 12th through BTOB's reality channel The Beat. BTOB also released their behind the scenes episode surrounding their end of the year music awards and their performance of their hit song, "The Winter's Tale" last Tuesday.

BTOB took on the challenge of emulating the thrilling movie "The New World" with great finesse and gave lots of funny material for the fans to enjoy. After the wrapping up of their schedule, BTOB improvised the infamous elevator scene from the crime movie, labeling the bit "Elevator Fight God." The scene involved lots of action that took viewers by surprise.

Member Jung Il Hoon, who took on the role of the charismatic Mob leader Hwa Jung Min, imitated the character's breathing and expressions perfectly in the bit.

Despite the shift from 2014 to 2015, BTOB continued to express their endless "7 color" talent by releasing an acapella performance through online portals. The video showed the members slowly harmonizing one by one and ending in a rich melody, reaffirming the group's stance as vocal leaders amongst Korean boy groups.

BTOB also recently released a heartfelt New Year's message to their fans through MBC's Gayo Dajeon's end of the year program. Member Lim Hyun Sik spoke on behalf of the group saying, "We will become much more charismatic musicians in 2015 in order to bring more happiness and content to our dedicated fans."

BTOB has been capturing the attention of listeners all around with their pastel costumes and warm, heartfelt deliveries of their single, "The Winter's Tale" off their 6th mini album with the same name.

In addition to their activities surrounding the single, members of the group regularly frequent the show Real Men, taking on ice water challenges with unwavering courage. Member Lim Hyun Sik is also a DJ on the KBS Cool FM show K-Pop Planet, becoming the first to take on the DJ position from his group and thus showcasing the potential of the group as a whole. 

You can watch BTOB's 15th episode of 'The Beat' through Naver's StarCast network HERE.
