Another week, another Star!

This time it was pretty much no contest, as you BABYs came through in a huge way for the Star of the Week for the 4th week of January.
That′s right - B.A.P managed to take the lead and earn the title of Star of the Week!

The B.A.P members recently chilled with their BABYs at a fanmeeting on January 12, and also recently released its first video teaser for 1004 (Angel).

The group is all set to stay busy for a good while now, since B.A.P will be releasing 1004 and its first album,First Sensibility on February 3rd, with concerts scheduled for March.

With all this work ahead, it′s no wonder that you fans came out in droves to vote for B.A.P, who earned 74.4% of the votes, beating out Park Shin Hye, ZE:A, and Girl′s Day!

Check out the specials!

Which B.A.P Member Makes the Best Girl?

“Which member would look the best if he were born again as a girl?”

That was the question asked of the B.A.P members at their 1st BABY Day fan meeting back in October 2012, and at the time, Himchan was the fans’ as well as the boys’ top pick. 
Well, we’re letting you be the judge this time because the boys kept true to their promise to go drag at the group’s next concert, getting dolled up for BABYs at the 2nd BABY Day fan meeting on January 12. 
We gathered a few photos and other gems of the B.A.P members floating around the web, so read on and let us know which boy you think makes the best girl!

Being pretty isn’t easy – Young Jae knows.

But Zelo somehow manages to make it look so easy.


Girls just wanna have fun? Well, it certainly looks like Jong Up just wants to have fun.

Is Himchan really the fairest of them all?

Finding photos of B.A.P’s big, bad leader dressed as a girl proved to be more difficult, but this clip of Bang Yong Guk’s best attempt at a ‘girly voice’ is a true gem.


Dae Hyun proved to be a challenge as well, but the fact that he can hit these high notes has to count for something, no?

B.A.P’s Most Liked Instagram Photos

The B.A.P members are all active SNS users, and as such most of them have jumped on the Instagram bandwagon. 

We love that the photo sharing app offers snapshots into the idols’ lives, but not all Instagram photos are created equal. So, we’re looking back on some of the B.A.P members’ most liked photos.
Flip through as we also try to figure out why certain photos were more popular than others among you fans.

The most liked photo on Young Jae’s Instagram is actually a photo of Zelo. Sucking on a lollipop. That matches the color of his hair. 

We would′ve liked this photo more than once if we could too.

But coming in at a close second is a photo of Young Jae – guess what – sucking on a lollipop. 

We’re starting to notice a trend here.

When it comes to the SNS world, selfies are what sell, and Jong Up’s Instagram proves it as his number one most liked photo is the selfie above. 

We think the school uniform is what won fans over

The second most popular photo – you guessed it – is another selfie, proving you can never go wrong with a smile.

Himchan proves the selfie theory once more, as his most liked photo is this selfie. 

Fans have a weakness for boys wearing smoky eye makeup, apparently.

That iced coffee has nothing on Himchan′s coolness in this photo, which is probably why this is also one of his most popular photos.

Fans were blinded by Himchan′s beauty in this popular photo.

When B.A.P’s maknae Zelo joined Instagram seven months ago, BABYs rejoiced as his first-ever post is still the idol’s most liked photo to this day.

This photo just makes us want to run into Zelo′s arms.

Zelo′s second post of him squeezed into a loveseat is also his second most liked photo. 

The pillow, the lips - this photo is a treasure trove of gems.

Coming in at a close third is the selfie above. 

No Zelo, merci beaucoup to you. For posting this photo.

B.A.P Members And Their Ideal Types

One of the favorite questions often asked with idol groups during an interview is their ideal type - and B.A.P is no exception.

As the winner of this week’s Star of the Week, here is a look into some of B.A.P members′ ideal types and what they look for in girls.

Bang Yong Guk and Girls with Good Morals

As the leader of the group, Bang Yong Guk has been asked many times what his ideal type is - and his answers haven′t really changed. 
More than once, he stated that his ideal type was a girl who has good morals. 
When he appeared as a guest on Mnet’s Beatles Code 2, he said he saw a girl picking up trash on street once, and thought it was beautiful. On top of that, he also named Tang Wei as his ideal - not for her beauty (although we′re sure that helped) but because of all of her generous charity work.

Himchan and Girls with Pure Images

Himchan, like Bang Yong Guk, is another who clearly cares more about the inside, since he′s all about girls who are compatible with him in personality. 
But need more details? He once named Han Hyo Joo as his specific ideal type, for her pure and innocent image. 

Young Jae and Strong-Minded Girls

Young Jae, on the other hand, is more about girls who know what they want and have bold characters, just like himself. 
He mentioned Kang Sora’s character in the movie Sunny as his ideal type, for her show of confidence and charisma. 
Considering how badass her character was - we′re thinking he′s into the cool chicks.

Jong Up and Girls with Passion 

Jong Up was the one member of B.A.P who′s avoided naming a specific person as his ideal type, but he has given some clues.
Apparently, Jong Up′s girl is someone who works hard in her field, and isn′t boring. 
He continued to puzzle his fans by saying that he likes someone he just ‘feels good’ to be with at first sight.

Zelo and Smart Girls 

Claiming himself a ‘single since birth’, Zelo said he likes smart girls. 
When he guested on Mnet’s Beatles Code 2, he confessed that watching Emma Watson from Harry Pottermade him want to date. 
He′s continued to mention Emma Watson as his ideal type - we′re thinking the fact that the girl went to Brown AND played smarty Hermione Granger has something to do with it - so, hit the books if you want to snare Zelo.

Dae Hyun and Feminine Girls

Having special love for food, Dae Hyun revealed that he would like his girl to be good at cooking. 
But that′s not all, since he′d like his ideal girl to be feminine and modest, naming Ha Ji Won and E Jiah as his ideal types.

Why the B.A.P Members are the Real Angels

Although they’ve been titled the ‘Bad Men’ of K-Pop, the B.A.P members should actually be called the 1004 (Angel)s, just like their upcoming new title song. 
Behind their fierce concepts and powerful songs, the B.A.P members have actually focused and shown concern about the well-beings of humankind, especially for those less fortunate than they, and even nature. 

Check out what makes all six members the kind of angels we need more of. 


If you listen closely to the lyrics of B.A.P’s Badman, you’ll find out that the song strongly addresses current social issues. 
B.A.P previously said in an interview that the song was created to make listeners be aware of some of the social injustices and crimes that are happening in our world today.
Bang Yong Guk stated, “Society was shaken with crimes that made big issues, but at one point those crimes were forgotten. They′re really serious incidents that society needs to learn from, but they′re all forgotten so easily. I wanted to draw attention to what′s happening and convey a message to criminals out there."
Humbly knowing they’re not great people, but do have the power to influence others, Himchan added, “We hope our influence moves everyone in a positive direction and has everyone act under the right values."

Hoping to influence fans into a positive direction? Thumbs up for B.A.P. 

Donation Made in Fanclub’s Name

We hear about a lot of donations being made in the name of idol groups, but it caught us off guard when we heard that it was B.A.P that donated in the name of BABY, its official fanclub. 
Celebrating its first anniversary, B.A.P donated a water pump to a village in Africa via UNICEF. 
In the card, B.A.P thanked the fans for supporting and loving the group for the past year and hope that the members and fans can continue moving each other’s hearts, as well as the ones belonging to those in need. 

“With the dream that our small actions could make big changes, let′s love each other more and continue to be with each other.”

Bringing Awareness to Global Warming

Back in 2012, B.A.P joined a group of 60 something artists to bring awareness to the urgent need to protect nature. 
B.A.P participated in recording the charity singleBeautiful World to encourage people to take action in making a change and show more concern for the environment.

A Good Leader to Follow

In order for the pack to act, a group needs a strong leader, and Bang Yong Guk proved that he is one heck of a leader to help his team. 
Bang Yong Guk admitted that he is very interested in social and current issues, naturally sharing these topics with his B.A.P members. 
He has made countless of donations in his name and sponsors children around the world. 
His passion seems to lie in helping children who are in need as he’s registered as a member of several NGOs, specifically, World Vision and Save the Children. 
When it was Children’s Day, Bang Yong Guk took the time to ask for permission to donate the dolls that were given to the group by the fans to a children’s home. 
The other B.A.P members mentioned that seeing Bang Yong Guk in action has inspired them to act as well, allowing the group to help other out together. 
It’s nearly impossible to keep track of every good thing Bang Yong Guk does, but seeing that so many NGOs even follow him on Twitter and he keeps track of every one of them, we’re pretty certain that Bang Yong Guk’s altruism will continue for a long, long time. 

A Good Influence to the Fans

With a group who is so interested in the welfare of others, of course the BABYs had to follow pursuit of their favorite group. 
B.A.P is known for setting up donation booths at their concerts, but aside from those, its fans went a step further to donate on their own in the group’s name. 
Most recently at BABY’s second fanmeeting, BABYs donated rice, eggs, briquettes, and other items to help people in need from infant to the elderly. 
Even a small donation can make a huge impact, so imagine what 970 kilograms of rice can do. 

Good job BABYs!
