B1A4 on their debut, unusual nicknames, and future goals


It's been a month since rookie boy group B1A4 debuted with their single album, "Let's Fly". Since then, they've been busily promoting their title track, "OK", and holding fan signings with big turn outs. The group's rapper, Baro, stated, "It's been about a month since our debut and there are already fans who recognize us. More people came to our fan signing than we expected, so we were all surprised. We promise to work hard so that we can show the public more of who we are." Leader Jinyoung added, "Thanks to our unique group name, fans have given us unique nicknames like 'paper idols' and 'blood idols.' Apparently, 'paper idols' comes from the fact that our name reminds them of A4 papers, and 'blood idols' comes from our blood types. We're satisfied with the nicknames and glad that people are taking an interest in us." CNU continued, "Each of us has a different charm. Baro is good at voice imitations and beatboxing, while Sandeul and Jinyoung are good at cooking. Gongchan may seem cool, but he has a lot of aegyo. Baro and I have taken an interest in writing and composing lately, so we're practicing very hard." Overall, the group endured two years of training, which helped foster their relationship as a team.  Main vocalist Sandeul revealed, "At our dorm, we play speed games or bingo together. These days, we're busy rehearsing when we have free time, but playing games with the other members is one of my biggest joys in life these days outside of training." Now that they've made a successful debut, what do they hope for in the future?  Maknae Gongchan replied, "I want everyone in our nation to be able to recognize us. I promise to work hard to make that goal come true." Jinyoung concluded, "We consider g.o.d. as our mentors. Their music was great and they're loved for such a long time still. We're determined to work hard with everything we're given."
