B.A.P (Korean: 비에이피; acronym for Best Absolute Perfect) is a six-member hip hop South Korean K-pop boy band formed by TS Entertainment in 2012. On 26th January 2012, B.A.P made their recording debut with the single "Warrior", with MTV Korea calling it "powerful and charismatic".

From 8th January until 10th March 2012, the group starred in a reality show, Ta-Dah, It's B.A.P, which aired on SBS MTV. The show focused on how the six members play the role of aliens from a different planet who worked together to debut as B.A.P.

On January 28, 2012, B.A.P held its debut showcase in Jangchung Gymnasium, Seoul, which was attended by over 3,000 people. On February 03, 2012, Warrior - The First Single Album debuted on Billboard's World Albums Chart at #10. In South Korea, Warrior sold over 10,000 copies in just two days upon its release.

B.A.P has been described as a group that is "set out to differentiate itself among the pretty-boy male idol groups currently dominating the K-Pop world with a tough, bad boy image, smashing car windows, kicking up dirt and, you know, doing as boys do."

We look forward to your support and interest in TS ENTERTAINMENT and B.A.P continuously.

TS BABY is the second group in TS Entertainment , the first group of TS Entertainment is SECRET .

With hundreds of idol groups debuting every minute (or at least it seems like it) , TS Entertainment (girl group SECRET‘s agency) is taking a more thorough approach to their newest project , currently known as TS BABY .

It’s a smart move — the first of the five-member male idol group , Bang Yong Gook , already has two successful collaborative singles under his belt : “Going Crazy” with SECRET’s Song Ji Eun and “I Remember” with BEAST‘s Yoseob .

This week , MTV Korea’s weekly music show , The Show , introduced a new male MC to join SECRET’s Hyosung and F(x)’s Luna .

The fresh-faced teenager was revealed to be Kim Him Chan , a TS Entertainment trainee and the second member on TS BABY’s roster .

So far, both Him Chan and Bang Yong Gook have gotten their own killer bunny logos (like Kid Robot dunnies) , and we’re assuming that TS BABY won’t be anything like B1A4 , Boyfriend , and the likes . But it doesn’t mean they’re not just as cute as all the other flower boy rookies , as netizens saw when Bang Yong Gook uploaded a selca of the pair on his Twitter .

Him Chan was speculated to be a member of TS BABY after rapping onstage with Bang Yong Gook at an underground show last month . The 1990′er was also revealed to have been an ulzzang (“best face”) star back in the day with MBLAQ‘s Lee Joon , Block B‘s Jaehyo , and CN.Blue‘s Yonghwa and Jonghyun .

Hats off to TS Entertainment for some excellent noise marketing . Him Chan’s first episode as The Show MC will air this Friday , August 26 – the same episode that will feature rookie group BB.Boys’ debut performance

Lyrically, Goodbye will take in the same mold as the group’s earlier releases as a commentary on society, describing their encouragement for fans to “never be frightened of new beginnings” and to “keep their hopes alive for their dreams.”

B.A.P Warrior English Translation Lyrics

Warrior is Back
We Gonna Rock This

What’s your B?
I will confront and fight for the souls in this street, whoa

What’s Your A?
The starting point of a new revolution
Stop me if you can

What’s your P?
An evil DNA, virus
We have lost all of our warriors
Once again, what’s the name of the game? B.A.P
Everyone stand up

The endless war, who is it for?
(Bang bang)
Everyone cowardly aims behind your head
Will you hypocrites be forgiven?
(Bomb bomb) Throw away all the dark masks
Get it on

* Warrior
Lose yourself under the sun
Start a fire in my heart
Digidigidum digidigidum
A little faster than a bullet
Pierce into your heart
Digidigidum digidigidum
It’s suffocating you

** Get down, get down
Get get get get, get down
Get down, get down
(Bow wow wow wow wow)

A punch that I throw for you,
Who are thirsty from the long fight
Everyone’s different, everyone takes sides
And those words are just words of ignorant people
Since the words that echoes in my heart is different from yours
I’m mad so listen to my 4 measure nagging
(Rest In Peace) This prayer for truths
Even if the hidden system, the black shadow cover it up
This holy badge that won’t yield
What’s the name of the game? B.A.P

Have you lived in the swamp of despair?
(Bang bang)
Nightmares haunt me, a lost compass
With the devil lips, will you say it easily?
(Bomb bomb)
One by one, they die, everyone stops breathing by the hell-like words

Underneath the sky, you cannot be hidden
Even if you hide, you will kneel before the truth
You you you you you you you

* repeat

** repeat

I Know It Ain't Easy For Two Of Us.
That's Right Man But You Know Whut?
Wut sup!
Sometimes Just Don't Care What Ppl Say Man.
Things Are Goin' Crazy All The Time You Know?
I Got No Choice Let Me Just Do This For Love.
