SWEET GIRL THANKS TO MESSAGES
Jinyoung: We have come back with a new album in about a year’s time. Whenever we release new music I feel excited and nervous. But when I think about being able to share our music with our fans, the wait feels more like happy expectations instead. As B1A4′s albums are released I feel like, one by one, more memories are formed for us to look back at, so I am very happy. I wish for these feelings of ours to be understood by you all, and I wish for this album to be filled with happiness for B1A4 and BANA. To BANA who always watch over us! I’m so thankful, and I love you! Moving forward let’s continue to make many happy memories. Also, to our WM members who always work hard for us, and to our staff who work day and night by our side, thank you so much and I love you.
CNU: It’s exciting to be greeting you with a new album after such a long time. I’ve always missed you. I really missed all of you who cheered ‘B1A4′ loudly whenever we went on stage. I feel like a lot has happened over this time. From our world tour and Seoul concert to our independent activities, during these busy and fast times I have learned and felt a lot of things. My concerns have grown deeper and my thoughts have become more plentiful. If there’s one thing that I’ve come to realize, it’s that our BANA are always there, at the same place, and unchanged. Whenever we feel lost and confused, it is you BANA who help us go back to the place we were. We have BANA who always give us strength, and so for this album too, I am happy. Please don’t forget that when BANA is having a tough time, B1A4 is always by your side too. We will be with you forever. Thank you and thank you again.
Sandeul: (It’s been a while since I wrote a Thanks to so it’s a bit awkward… ; ;) Firstly, to our BANA who looked only at B1A4 during all these times and waited for us, I wanted to say!! Thank you~!!! And to Lee Won Min CEO and Kim Jin Mi chairman who have been like both friend and family and have helped us grow, thank you!! Thank you so much for letting us have so many experiences, and because of you we have been able to improve even more. Hehe WM fighting~!! To our company members who’ve shared my concerns and counselled me!! Because of you I’ve been able to gather courage and prepare much harder. Thank you ㅠㅠ And there’s nothing to say to my members Hehe I’ll lean on you this time as well~^^ For me, I really like how everyone is right now. We give each other strength, and whatever it is we suggest ways to reach for a better path. Isn’t it a great thing to see?? Moving forward, let’s become a team who can respect each other, give each other more strength, and lean on each other!! Hehe Lastly, my parents!! Hehe My family who helped me snap back to my senses with their sharp words, thank you so much, and in the future please use warm words too~!! Hehe To everyone who helped us with this album, thank you very very much and I will never forget it!! Thank you Hehe
Baro: B1A4′s new album has come out after a year~!! Firstly, for this album as well, WM Lee Won Min CEO and our chairman who have provided us lots of support and cheer!! And our WM members, I know you have worked hard day and night for us. I’ll work harder to reciprocate. Thank you very much. Also, our stylist Jungyoung head, Ggotnu, staff, Yoning shop, I’m always thankful. Because of you all I believe we’ve been able to create a cool album. I will reciprocate with our cool promotions and performances. Also, my loving family who cheers for me by my side, as well as my other family who are my fellow members. For this album too, I pray that we can become a B1A4 who brings happiness to many people, and let’s work even harder. Lastly, to our BANA who have eagerly waited by our side for a year, I always say this, but I’m so thankful. We were able to make this album because of BANA who believed in and waited for B1A4. As always, let’s hold each other’s hands and reach out together!! I adore you all so much!! ♡ Listen to the album before you sleep~^_^ B1A4 & BANA fighting!
Gongchan: I wanted to meet you all faster, but to come back now I’m really sorry. Personally, for the year that we haven’t released an album, I don’t know where the time went, but as I turn around I realize that an entire year has passed by already. During that time our BANA must have missed us a lot, and of course, we really missed BANA too. As much as the time that we have spent together, I think that the strong trust between B1A4 and BANA has helped us wait for each other. It was a long wait, but because we can meet BANA again I’m really looking forward to this album’s promotions. BANA! I am always sorry, and always thankful. I love you a lot. Also my hyungs, let’s run hard once again! To my WM Entertainment family! Thank you for always cheering for us. I will become an even greater Gongchan, so please always watch over me!

On the 24th, B1A4 participated in the Korea-Japan Joint Live (Kan Fun Live 2015) at Chiba Port Arena. There are plans for them to join the Christmas Live event in December, as well as have a Japan Tour in January next year.
It is reported that on this day (at Kan Fun Live 2015) B1A4 stood on stage in Japan after 10 months. They performed their hit songs such as ‘White Miracle’, as well as three songs from their new album ‘Sweet Girl’, including '10 Years Later’.
B1A4 debuted in Japan in 2012, and won various awards including the Japan Golden Disc award for new artist, gaining them popularity.
They are currently active with promotions for ‘Sweet Girl’ in Korea, and will have a concert on the 12th-13th next month.

B1A4′s Baro and Infinite’s Dongwoo have participated in the rap-featuring for singer Ami’s new song ‘Hurts Down To My Bones’.
It is rare for members from different popular idol groups to feature for one ballad song, so this case is gaining attention and interest.
Baro and Dongwoo have proven their uniqueness and skills as they are B1A4 and Infinite’s main rappers, and have featured for other artists before. They have participated in the rap-feature for ‘Hurts Down To My Bones’, which may have further enriched the song.
Ami’s new song will be released on the 27th.
(T/N: They will most likely be separate versions of the song, since there were separate teasers for the music video.)

Q: We ask B1A4 <Jinyoung> I’m not alone… but ‘10 Years Later’ keeps on…. making me want to cry… I wonder how you must have felt (when composing the song) and it makes me sadder ㅜ_ㅠ
Jinyoung: Um… I definitely think I had lots of worries on my mind~ What will I be like in 10 years.. If I live a lazy/idle life what would I look like, I’ve thought about these things a lot~ So I reflected on myself in the present, and thought things over as I wrote this song~^.^
Q: We ask B1A4 <CNU> Whenever you shed large drops of tears… I can’t take it ㅜ_ㅜ Are you confident in cry-acting?
CNU: If I am feeling real sadness I think I can do it in a natural way. But if I try to force my tears I don’t think it’ll happen well.
Q: We ask B1A4 <Sandeul> When you do the tap-tap (on the chest) dance… May I enter (your heart) for a while? I… will take it as you accepting me~ Your hands.. your eyes…♥
Sandeul: Come in~ come in~!! I’ll comfort you~♥ Feel my hands and eyes~!! You~must!! Hehe
Q: We ask B1A4 <Baro> You rap “I’m a yellow butterfly” in ‘Sweet Girl’. I wonder.. is the butterfly in the teaser… Baro!? Where will you land?
Baro: Shinwoo Hyung! Since Shinwoo Hyung’s shoulders are broad, I think it’ll be a comfortable place to land!!
Q: We ask B1A4 <Gongchan> Regarding the ‘honey-abs’ exposing shot that was too much for our hearts.. the love♥ Will the heart-attack photos continue?
Gongchan: Hmm…. It’s a secret♥ Since my exposing shots are a surprise! Please look forward to it! (Let’s say that was the last of the exposure for this year…??)

On the 18th, Gongchan posted an Instagram photo stating “to the office after my schedules,” hinting his appearance at his own exhibition at the WM Entertainment building.
30 minutes prior to the end of the exhibition, Gongchan made a surprise appearance and turned into the exhibition’s curator. He explained his photos to fans, and took photos with fans at the photozone, spending a warming time with them.
The ‘GONG CHAN SIK EXHIBITION’ has been taking place from August 14th to the coming 23rd, as a celebration for Gongchan’s birthday and B1A4’s 6th mini album release.
For a total of ten days, the exhibition is taking place on the first floor of the WM Entertainment building. Entry is free, and just requires the completion of simple missions that any B1A4 fan can know. The exhibition displays thirty of Gongchan’s own photos, which are cutely arranged according to his emotions.
Netizens who found out about his appearance later on made comments such as “Daebak!! Gongchan showed up at his own exhibition!”, “BANA from outside the city are crying”, “Surprise! Gong Chan Sik Exhibition is daebak!”, “As expected, B1A4’s fanservice is the best”.

After one year boy group B1A4 came back as one and showed their tears at their comeback stage (Guerilla Concert). And two weeks later they showed their tears once again on a music program. It was their first win after their comeback. B1A4 as a group were not active for a year, and so this trophy was even more meaningful to them, and to their fans.
On the 19th B1A4 achieved their first win with ‘SWEET GIRL’ after their comeback on Show Champion. The members seemed to have not expected the win as they looked surprised. While Jinyoung thanked fans and staff members, Gongchan started to shed tears. Gongchan stated, “I’m so thankful” and even during the encore song we could still see his tears.
This 1st-place trophy is definitely a special one for B1A4. Of course they have always felt thankful whenever they won 1st place, but as this was their first win after their comeback in over a year, it must have been even more meaningful for the members. Gongchan likely shed tears for this reason.
At their comeback stage on the 6th (Guerilla Concert), Sandeul had previously stated, “Since we didn’t release any new songs for a year, I thought maybe the group ‘B1A4′ was forgotten by fans.” Shinwoo had stated, “Since we haven’t had a comeback in a long time, we had many worries.” At that time, both members cried in front of numerous fans at the scene, who were continuously chanting “B1A4″. This win may have been able to shatter those worries felt by the members. Therefore, their win on this day is even more meaningful, and the trophy is even more valuable.
Especially as B1A4 have not been active (album promotions) for a long time, they have made many improvements/developments for this current album. Their title track ‘Sweet Girl’ and the overall mood of the song have become a step more mature, and the album filled with the members’ compositions has been getting positive responses. Rapper Baro challenged himself by singing, and Jinyoung and Shinwoo being able to insert stories they wanted to share ‘now’ was impressionable.
B1A4 have been making their own music since their debut, and so they will be able to continue incorporating their passed times and the members’ growth into their music. This is why B1A4 can also maintain their true colours. They separate themselves from other idols who may have similar musical colours. Rather than sticking to trends, their music displays a ‘B1A4 style’, so we give them points for individuality and likability/acceptance.
B1A4 are gradually growing as composing/songwriting idols and musicians, and so we look forward to how their music will be accepted by the public in the future, and what results they will achieve.
