Idol group BTOB has confessed their thoughts on having to make a comeback after 7 months of hiatus.
Prior to BTOB’s live broadcast on Music Bank on the 10th of October, the seven members of BTOB met up with ‘Oh My Star’ to deliver their thoughts. “We feel happy for being able to stand on stage after such a long while” and, “We enjoy every second when we are on stage. We hope to receive the public’s loves and support through our latest album,” they said.
BTOB released their 5th mini album ‘MOVE’ on the 29th of September. ‘MOVE’, as its title suggests, consists of BTOB’s aspiration ‘to move the hearts of people through music.’ Individually, each member has been gaining attention for themselves through variety programs, dramas and many more personal activities. They are now united again to stand on the same stage, singing ‘You’re So Fly’ together.
For their latest album, BTOB has included songs specially made for the ‘vocal line’ and ‘rap line’ – songs that are able to showcase their best colors. Lee MinHyuk, Jung IlHoon and Peniel sang ‘You are My Angel’, while Seo Eunkwang, Im HyunSik, Lee Changsub and Yook Sungjae recorded for ‘Don’t Know’. Im HyunSik who works behind the scene as the composer and lyricist for ‘Don’t Know’ expressed, “(It’s a song that) Lives up to the strength of our vocal line” and, “Honestly, I’m confident of (my) voice, but by having four members singing the song, we are more focused at our parts, which further enhances the overall song with different vocals”, he explained.
‘You are My Angel’ was co-composed and co-written by the rap-line members. Jung IlHoon’s elder sister, Joo, also took part in the song. Jung IlHoon revealed, “I initially wrote this song with my noona in mind” and, “Perhaps it’s because I thought of her voice, that’s why her vocals fits very well with the song. She monitored my overall progress and was understanding throughout the process. In the future, I would really want to work side by side with her,” he smiled.
BTOB will be holding their first ever solo concert titled, ‘Hello Melody’ on October 31st and November 1st. Having to have their solo concert after 2 years and 7 months, BTOB expressed, “We are currently preparing diligently for our concert aside from having our promotional activities” and, “It will be unique concert. Please anticipate it!” flaunting their confidence.
“We hope to be a group where everyone will look forward to all tracks in our album (other than the title track)” (Lee MinHyuk)
