Opinionated Profile of B.A.P

b.a.p

This is my first requested post! It was requested a few weeks ago, and now I’m finally getting around to it. I hope that the requester sees this, and that you’re happy with it! As always, this will be me writing my general opinions about the members and ranking them from who I like the least, to who I like the most. As we’ve already dealt with the group that I can’t rank, I’ll now again say that even though I like all the members I’m still fully capable of ranking them.

6. Himchan

himchan

Birth name: Kim Him Chan

Stage name: Himchan

Birthday: April 19, 1990

Official height: 180 cm

Position: Sub-Vocalist, Rapper, Face of the Group

Comment: I will never ever call a member useless, because I don’t think the kpop companies in their endless wisdom would ever include a member that didn’t have some sort of purpose. But you all have to admit that when it comes to pure musical contribution, Himchan doesn’t do much. He has a couple of lines per song usually. And normally he doesn’t even sing, he just kind of talks. I’m not trying to bash Himchan at all, so I hope you don’t take it that way, I’m just trying to look at this clearly.

Even though I don’t think he contributes much musically, I still really enjoy the little parts he does have. His voice is almost a little scary, and I like it a lot.

As a dancer Himchan is… well. Let’s just not get into that.

I don’t think he should have the ‘rapper’ title, since I don’t consider what he does rapping, but oh well.

Himchan’s primary purpose in this group is to be the face, and while I do think he has a very interesting face, he isn’t my personal cup of tea. He has a very long face and an almost alien-like look. I appreciate that as something interesting to look at, but I’m not attracted to it.

I hope I wasn’t too mean to Himchan here… I don’t dislike him at all, but he really doesn’t do much for me.

5. Youngjae

Youngjae

Birth name: Yoo Young Jae

Stage name: Youngjae

Birthday: January 24, 1994

Official height: 178 cm

Position: Lead Vocalist

Comment: I’m not sure if this is still the case, but when B.A.P first debuted I think Youngjae was incredibly underrated. Everyone went on and on about the rappers, and about how great of a singer Daehyun is. And while I do think those three deserve a lot of praise, Youngjae is an excellent singer too. He doesn’t have the incredible raw power that Daehyun possesses but he does have a very well-controlled and sweet voice, and in some songs he completely kills it. That’s not to say that I prefer his voice over Daehyun’s, because I don’t, but I really like his voice as well, and I hope that he gets the credit that he deserves nowadays.

While I do find him hot in the picture I chose here (which is why I chose it), I’m normally not very attracted to Youngjae at all. I’m (usually) not really attracted to the cute and young look, and Youngjae has that look down. He’s got kind of big eyes, big lips and an overall very cute and soft appearance. He’s very sexy when he sings sometimes, but when he’s not he really does nothing for me.

4. Yongguk

yongguk

Birth name: Bang Yong Guk

Stage name: Yongguk

Birthday: March 31, 1990

Official height: 182 cm

Position: Leader, Main Rapper

Comment: I am a big fan of raspy and deep rap voices, but it’s almost like Yongguk pushes it so far that I can’t completely love it. I do really like his rapping, but he always sounds kind of angry and aggressive. His voice makes him sound quite one-dimensional, in my personal opinion. He is a good rapper with a good flow, but I’m not madly in love with his rapping.

I feel like it’s becoming almost mandatory for main rappers who are also leaders to write for their group. Not that I’m complaining, I really appreciate it when kpop stars contribute and are a part of the production in any way.

I think Yongguk seems like a very capable leader. He doesn’t seem to rule his group with an iron fist, yet the other members seem to really respect him. We can’t know for sure of course, but that’s my general impression of it all.

While I do think that Yongguk can sometimes be one sexy bastard, that depends more on charisma than on actual appearance. He does have pretty nice abs though.

3. Zelo

zelo

Birth name: Choi Jun Hong

Stage name: Zelo

Birthday: October 15, 1996

Official height: 184 cm (I’m not sure how old that number is though. He be growing fast!)

Position: Maknae, Lead Rapper, Lead Dancer

Comment: When I was first introduced to B.A.P I wanted Zelo as my bias, but my friend had already claimed him so I couldn’t have him. Oh the maturity of kpop fans. We have become a lot more reasonable when it comes to biasing (i.e. choosing your bias) but back then it really came down to calling dibs first. So, yeah, I couldn’t have him. I am fine with that now though and have moved on, but I still have a kind of special love for Zelo. The fact that he’s pretty much the same age as me helps too, for once I’m not crushing on a guy who’s over six years older than me!

How attractive I find Zelo depends a lot on styling. When he’s styled correctly, like in the picture I chose here, he’s gorgeous. But if he’s styled incorrectly he can either look really young or just weird.

Zelo is a very good rapper. He keeps up with a very fast beat very well and still maintains his flow. If he only had a deeper voice then I would have loved his rapping… His voice is quite high-pitched though and he sounds younger than he actually is. It’s too bad, but I’m still very impressed with him.

He’s a very good dancer as well. Jongup has him beat, but he’s definitely the best out of the rest of them.

1.5. Jongup

jongup

Birth name: Moon Jong Up

Stage name: Jongup

Birthday: February 6, 1995

Official height: 176 cm

Position: Sub-Vocalist, Main Dancer

Comment: This was the guy I chose as my bias when I wasn’t allowed to have Zelo, and I lived happily with him as my bias for a long time. But then a certain little sexy douche came around and completely messed up my bias list. It went so far that I even  announced my change of bias to my friends. But then I suddenly remembered all the things I loved about Jongup, all the things that made him my bias in the first place. And now I’m confused. Right now I would say that I kind of have two biases in B.A.P, which goes against my personal rule of only one bias per group. And I can’t break my rules, so I’ll have to figure this out. Somehow.

Most of the time Jongup is this cute little thing that I’m not super attracted to, but sometimes he turns into some insanely sexy creature. Interestingly this seems to coincide with whenever he dances. He always has some crazy awesome abs though. I approve.

I like that he’s kind of shy and awkward. I’m not sure if it’s something I really go for in real life, but in kpop idols I find it very sweet, for some reason.

He’s not here to sing, we know that. I do think he’s gotten better though, but purely musically he contributes about as much as Himchan.

Awesome dancer, and I definitely believe that he has a lot more to show.

1.5. Daehyun

daehyun

Birth name: Jung Dae Hyun

Stage name: Daehyun

Birthday: June 28, 1993

Official height: 177 cm

Position: Main Vocalist

Comment: Oh you stupid annoying little bias list ruiner! I had my bias list in B.A.P completely figured it out when you came around and somehow made me so insanely attracted to you that it’s impossible to ignore you. You annoyingly overly sexy little… Sorry, it annoys me. I haven’t had many bias list ruiners in my days, and mostly I stick with the bias I choose from the beginning. And when I do switch bias, I’m normally fine with that, and it’s a smooth switch. But this is a full-out battle. When Jongup dances I’m sure that he’s the one but then Daehyun gives me (or you know, the camera) one of those looks and I just can’t think anymore. Gah.

Daehyun’s voice is super great, we all know that. He has a lot of power, he’s stable and he has a good range. There’s not really much to say about that, because everyone already knows.

He’s gorgeous. Oh so sexy. Moving on.

I’m feeling my posts becoming less and less structured and more and more ranty… But since I’m really mostly just writing this for myself, I don’t really mind. And maybe my ranting is fun to read? I hope so.

  1. Haha nowadays whenever a rookie idol seems to be rather introverted and doesn’t speak (*cough* Leo *cough) much I wonder “are you actually like that or are you pulling a Daehyun on us?” xD
    Honestly, I expect sooo much from the two maknaes. Both have been improving a lot.
    I am also very excited to see when Zelo’s growth spurt will come to an end 😉
    Overall a very likable group but I’d love to see them return to their Warrior roots for their next comeback!

    1. Haha well I think Leo’s for real xD
      Yeah, I hold them to very high standards as well. They haven’t disappointed me yet though.
      Haha yeah me too 😉 we approve of tall guys!
      Yeah, me too. They are very dear to me, and land just outside my top ten favorites.

      1. Sorry it took a while for me to notice since I havent been online for a while due to assignments..
        Anyway, yeah I don’t completely agree with your opinion…but I’m not gonna bash u and stop reading 🙂
        Keep up the good work!!

      2. Well that’s good 🙂 I don’t really expect anyone to fully agree with me, I just hope people will somehow find what I write interesting! 😀
        I most certainly will!
