B1A4 has created an opportunity for themselves to become an even stronger group through SWEET GIRL.
Recently B1A4 concluded their SWEET GIRL album promotions with a concert on the 12th and 13th. B1A4′s Jinyoung and CNU involved themselves in the composition and songwriting for the entire SWEET GIRL album, and member Baro contributed in the rap-making, allowing the entire album to be made perfectly by B1A4′s own touch. B1A4 has continued to insert their own compositions into each of their albums, but this time they attempted to upgrade their music with the use of Real Session (instrumentation).
Through this album, B1A4 portrayed their unique colours to the fullest. With songs like Tried To Walk, What’s Going On,Lonely, and Solo Day, B1A4′s title tracks did not prioritize excitement or intensity. Rather, they contained B1A4′s unique softness and emotionality. Sometimes these emotions were fun, and sometimes they contained a subtle innocence. They were filled with B1A4′s bright and refreshing energy. With the concepts of boy, flower, and butterfly in SWEET GIRL, the members amplified their soft and innocent emotions. This has been possible because the members have continuously contributed in painting their own colours.
B1A4 has also set new challenges and opportunities for growth through events like the Guerilla Concert and their outdoor concert. Prior to their comeback, B1A4 opened a surprise Guerilla Concert on August 6th. With only two hours of promotion time, the members were able to attract many people, causing crowding at Gangnam. On this day, the members shed tears as they stated, “having come back after one year and one month, we were afraid that the group B1A4 might have been forgotten by our fans.” However, fans never forgot B1A4, and they were able to tighten their relationship even further.
During this promotion period, B1A4 continued to work on their communication with fans. The youngest member Gongchan opened his own mini exhibition with photographs he took as a part of his hobby. Gongchan even made a surprise visit to his own exhibition and explained his photographs personally, allowing for a nice time to connect with his fans.
On the 12th~13th, B1A4 even had a concert at the Seoul Yonsei University Open-Air Theatre, where the members and their fans confirmed the reliance they have with each other. By putting on the first idol outdoor concert, they created a festival-like atmosphere, and connected with their fans. They sang as they made eye contact with fans in the theatre, and they enjoyed their moment together.
Through their SWEET GIRL promotions, the B1A4 members felt the great importance of their fans. With TenAsia, Sandeul mentioned, “We were coming back after one year so I feel like we tightened the relationship with our BANAs, and because the entire album was filled with our compositions many people have said that ‘B1A4 is a team that performs their own music’, which I think has been really meaningful.” Additionally he mentioned, “The Guerilla Concert is fixed strongly in my memory. I worried if many people would even come, but the place was filled so I felt incredibly thankful. And with that I believe we gained the strength to conclude our SWEET GIRL promotions successfully.”
Leader Jinyoung also left caring words. As stated by Jinyoung, “It’s been a while since we last had a comeback, but I feel like we’ve received so much love from our fans so that makes me happy. Also, it has been meaningful to be able to present our fans with songs that we made ourselves.” Additionally he stated, “I’ll never forget the memories we built with our fans while on stage, as well as our first-ever Guerilla Concert experience.”
From creating their own music to forming tighter connections with their fans, B1A4 has built unforgettable memories through SWEET GIRL. B1A4 did not find success from the beginning; rather, they are a group who stacked their bricks one at a time, and built themselves a staircase to find that success. SWEET GIRL is another brick that they have firmly stacked for themselves.
