Hello beautiful people!    I only got to know about BtoB recently & I love their passion for music! And I am so in love with their dance moves! They are so soothing & refreshing! This

his old pedal got burned? lol  

BTOB Holds Debut Showcase (Video Included)

Cube Entertainment’s new idol band, BTOB, held its debut launch showcase on March 21, officially kick starting their promotion as a seven member boy group. The event was held shortly after BTOB’s debut singles, “Insane” and “Imagine,” were released online. The launch show itself cost over $100K USD, showing how serious Cube Entertainment is about this group.

“We’re not satisfied 100%. It was our first live stage, so we were very nervous and clumsy at times. We think it’s hard to show 100% of what we got on our first stage. But we’ll work harder moving forward to show growth and development,” BTOB said.

“BEAST is just too busy so it’s hard to see them in person. But we’re learning a lot from their promotions. G.NA’s in Canada now but she told us to do well. 4minute is busy filming their MV, but they told us to do well and not be nervous on stage. They just told us to enjoy it,” BTOB added when asked if their fellow Cube Entertainment artists gave any word of advice.

“Our strongest part is that we know how to play instruments and have a lot of talent too. Also, all seven members have unique personalities, so you won’t forget us once you see us. Of course, it would be difficult to show everything about us here, but we’ll do our best to show a growing side of us moving forward,” they added.

After the showcase took place, Cube Entertainment uploaded the full video of the launching show on their official BTOB YouTube channel. Enjoy the video below!

I really liked their showcase and wasn't impress with the song choice for the rappers but they pulled it off quite well. I loved how they had two separate performances for the vocals and rappers. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing this group grow.

Cube Entertainment introducing the new male group, BTOB

Following 4Minute, B2ST, and G.Na, the Cube Entertainment has introduced a rookie group BTOB which is composed of seven male members.

On March 21, the group gave a debut showcase performance at the Grand Ball Room of JW Marriott Hotel in Banpo-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul.

Comedian Kim Young Chul hosted the showcase, and Eun-Kwang, Hyun-Sik, Peniel, Sung-Jae, Chang-Sub, Il-Hoon, and Min-Hyuk walked down the stage one after another. Each of them was in an individualist pose and received a load of flash.

The name BTOB stands for “Born To Beat,” and it shows the group’s musical ambition, general hope and determination. Especially, the word “beat” has dual meaning for the group: first, it means that the group is born for the new music and performances, “the beat”; second, it will overpower, impress, or “beat” the listeners around the world.

After a thorough analysis of network overseas with Asia market at the center, the Cube Entertainment focused on creating a group with upgraded vocal and performance skills through hard training. As a result, BTOB was formed after a long period of time. With its sentimental voice, the group sings both dance and ballad music and is considered one of the most hopeful rising stars in 2012.

^ LOL. Those are hilarious but also remember to credit the people/tumblr users who made it. My bias seems to lean towards Ilhoon just because he's incredibly adorable yet his rapping style different hahas, he also reminds me a lot of Junhyung.

I also found the link to the boys debut stage and it hasn't disappointed me yet. I'm incredibly in love with Imagine and it's a pity Cube wasn't able to pull strings to have them perform two full stages.

^ That's actually not surprising at all. A lot of Cube artists were once JYP trainee's because the CEO from Cube was from that company until he launched his own later on. I also wanted to know, was it everyone that was fluent in English?

@ Hanamooi.. i think minwoo was supposed to be in the group but was eventualy cut out.. cuz i don't see him in the group anymore.. and maybe instead of him they put in Peniel.. cuz at the cube party ( where the trainees showed off theyre skills) Peniel wasn't in the group jet... and many ppl confuse Minhyuk with minwoo but they are too diffrent ppl.. hope that helps

[NEWS] 120323 BtoB members reveal their thoughts after first debut stage

Fresh Cube Entertainment idol group BtoB (Born To Beat) expressed how they felt after their debut performance of “Insane” on ‘M!Countdown‘.

Member Lee Chang Sub commented, “First of all, we’re most happy that we can do our music. I thought more about what we’re going to do after our performance on ‘M!Countdown’. Right now my heart is fluttering and I’m extremely happy. I’ll continue working with this feeling in mind. Our debut showcase on the 21st and today’s performance felt different. That time we freely performed amongst ourselves, but today, even the air on stage was different. I felt ㅔㄱpressured,” revealing how nervous he felt before the group’s first televised performance as BtoB.

Lee Min Hyuk added, “In my case, I first showed my face on JTBC‘s ‘I Live in Cheongdamdong’. I portrayed a trainee dreaming of becoming a singer then, but I feel completely different today. I was first bewildered by the fans who came for us, who’ve only just debuted, then I had the thought that I should work really hard.”

BtoB agreed, “We don’t think we can be perfect from the start. But as we gain more and more [experience], we want to be an idol group that helps the Korean music industry shine.”

My current bias in BTOB is Peniel :wub:

I thought so too! Their performances were great and their songs are addictive as well. My bias has to be Ilhoon <3333 I'm looking forward to their Music Core stage!

[TRANS] 120324 Hello~ It's BTOB's center Im Hyun Shik^^

드디어 저도 등업이되서 글을 올리네요!

데뷔 이틀째지만 아직도 연습생인것 같고

실감이 나질 않네요~

저 가수 된거 맞죠? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

일단 아직 많이 부족한 BTOB를 관심가져 주셔서

정말 진심으로 감사합니다!!

그리고 응원와주신분들 너무너무 감사합니다!

저희가 처음 겪는 일이고 잘 몰라서 표현은

못해드렸지만 정말 너무 감동했고 힘이 났어요!

앞으로도 더 많은 분들이 찾아와 주실거라 믿습니다!

데뷔를 바쁘게 준비하며 잠도 못자 피곤하고

데뷔를 해서도 지금 너무 정신없이 시간이 가지만

덕분에 지금 이 시간이 너무너무 재밌고 정말

행복한거 같아요!



Born To Beat 화이팅!!!!!!!!:D

I can finally post a text after being levelled up!

I feel like a trainee even though it’s been two days into our debut

I still can’t feel it

Am I a singer? kekekekeke

Thank you so much

For being interested in BTOB even though we lack in many ways!!

And thank you so so much to the people who came to support us!

We were so touched because we weren’t able to express ourselves

Due to the fact that it was our first experience and we didn’t know much!

I believe that many more people will come to see us in the future!

I am so tired because we were preparing for our debut and couldn’t sleep

And time flies crazily like now even though we had out debut

But I think that this time is very happy and fun

Right now!

Thank you!!!!

We will work hard

Born to Beat hwaiting!!!
