A Boy-group Called Best, Absolute, Perfect

B.A.P is a boy-group from South Korea that debuted under TS Entertainment. When they debuted on January 26, 2012, the group had six members, but now they only have five: Himchan, Daehyun, Youngjae, Jongup, and Zelo. On August 23, 2018, it was confirmed that Bang Yongguk’s contract with TS Entertainment expired, and he decided not to continue his activity with B.A.P.

The group debuted with song ‘Warrior’ that aired on the reality show Ta-Dah, It’s B.A.P. B.A.P has a concept for their group, that they’re aliens who’ve come from the Planet Mato and have been sent to the Earth with a mission to save their dying planet. Each member has their own Matoki (Mask-wearing Tokki) that represents their character. Tokki means Rabbit in the Korean language, so a mask-wearing Tokki means a rabbit that’s wearing mask.
