It was the 180 minutes that proved the B1A4's potentials as "The President of Girls".
On 8th, the quintet idol group B1A4 (Jinyoung, Baro, Sandeul, CNU, Gongchan) opened their first exclusive concert, "BABA B1A4" at Seoul Olympic Handball Stadium.
The reason why B1A4's concert is catching one's attention is because it's an exclusive concert opened only after debuting for about 500 days and after considering the fact that there are only a handful of boy groups in the domestic music industry that have the ability to open their exclusive concert, for a rookie group who hasn't even debuted for a full 2 year to hold their solo concert is an extremely exceptional case.
The biggest reason why B1A4 could open their exclusive concert this fast is because of their strong and firm formation of fandom which is solid enough to make them "The President of Girls". After debuting in April 2011, B1A4 gained more than 120,000 domestic fans, now boasting a solid fandom.
As if B1A4 was actually proving their solid fandom, tickets for "BABA B1A4" were sold out in 5 minutes and additional tickets were sold out in 10 minutes. Total of 11,000 tickets were all sold out and it was safe to said that all fans who visited their concert hall were teenage girls, showing overwhelming age groups and gender and proving that their nickname- "The President of Girls" was not an overstatement.
Furthermore, as if the five members of B1A4 were responding to their fans' anticipation they started their show with "Beautiful Target" and continued with their hit songs, "Bling Girl", "Because of you", "Tried to Walk" and received explosive cheering.
That's not all, B1A4 progressed their concert in an unique way called "Music Drama" along with the beauty of exclusive concerts- member's solo stages and surprise cross-dress stage and by preparing many various performances, they released their charms which they couldn't show their fans till now and made the concert more splendid and colorful.
Showing off their stage manners and live performance talent which are unlike any other rookie, after creating a 180 minutes full of passion and cheering, B1A4 said, "Standing on this stage feels like a dream and I'm happy." and continued "For us to open a concert after debuting a year and 8 month was only possible because of you guys.", not forgetting the appreciative words to their fans.
At present, most of the boy groups aim on fandom than popularity and B1A4 is selected as the most successful group to secure a solid fandom among the recently debuted groups.
For this reason, they receive criticism as a group that is only popular among a specific age group but the charms displayed by B1A4 on this day became a good reason why the girls fell for them.
Meanwhile, B1A4 held their first exclusive concert "BABA B1A4" on 8th and 9th at Seoul Olympic Handball Stadium for 2 days.
