As my colleague Ambika said in her review of their latest album, it seems mildly ridiculous to talk about a B.A.P. comeback — the group has been so active since they debuted that it feels as though they’ve never left. Truth be told, their constant promoting has pretty much paid off; to say that it is difficult to make a name for yourself as a rookie group in today’s decidedly over-saturated K-popiverse is an understatement, and the fact that B.A.P. has amassed a large and loyal following in under a year speaks not only to their talent, but also to their dedication and hard work. B.A.P. may not always put out material that everyone loves, but they consistently win points for their strong execution and effort.
In 2013, however, B.A.P. seems to be breaking out the big guns in order to start the new year with a bang (both puns intended), as the release of their mini-album “One Shot” comes alongside the release of what is perhaps the most outlandishly expensive and ostentatious K-pop music video of all time
