Bastarz the Block B’s Sub Unit
The sub-unit of an idol group may not be a novelty for netizens or fans of their idol group. The agency that forms the sub-unit of the original idol group does this to highlight some of the more prominent members and also indirectly promote their original group with some of their prominent members. For example, Girl’s Generation has Sub Unit TTS ( Taeyeon, Tiffany, Seohyun ) and SISTAR has Sub Unit SISTAR19 ( Hyolyn and Bora ).
Bastarz is a sub unit of the boys group under Seven Season, that is Block B. For other sub units, the agency might chose the most prominent member of the group. But the members from Bastarz, Block B have a unique way of forming a sub unit. They make a game; there are two balls, red and blue, and whoever gets red will enter into the sub unit. B-Bomb, U-Kown, and P.O are members who joined Bastarz and debuted in April 2015.
