Check out a preview of B2ST’s Japanese version of “Fiction” in ‘Shanghai’ trailer

B2ST would provide the image song for the Japanese-U.S. collaborative film, “Shanghai“.

A brief cut of the song was used towards the end of the trailer, which was released today. The Japanese remake of the song was re-arranged into a soothing ballad that’s bursting at the seams with emotion and power. Although some were unsure as to how “Fiction” would fit with the atmosphere of a high-tension film, the boys managed to pull it off flawlessly.

“Fiction” will be used in not only the movie teaser, but in the CF as well; it will also be included in their first Japanese album, “SO BEAST“, scheduled for release on August 10th.

Check it out below (begins around the 1:30 mark)!

B2ST prepares a special ’support present’ for their fans

To celebrate the successful promotions of their latest album “Fiction and Fact“, the members of B2ST have prepared a heartwarming surprise for their fans.

Over 1,000 fans gathered to bid the boys farewell on the June 19th episode of SBS’s “Inkigayo“, and each of them received a special present from the boys themselves. The members wanted to repay all the love they’ve received during their promotions, and decided to give a ’support gift’ of their own to their fans.

Fanclubs in Korea are known for coming up with lavish ’support ideas’, like buying their groups lunch baskets and snacks for both the members and staff, often with special stickers pasted on to represent their
 fanclub. The boys were inspired by the idea, and so they prepared 1,000 drinks with personally designed stickers like, “God Dongwoon’s Surprise Attack” and “Paid For by Chief Yoon.”

Surprised fans commented back, “How is it possible to not like them when they do fan service like this”, and “B2ST loves their fans so much!”

The boys concluded, “The past month has been like a dream to us thanks to all of the best love sent to us by our fans. Thank you so much for making us so happy right up until the last broadcast.”

Through Star News, leader Doojoon said, “We were able to receive eight trophies in a month all thanks to our fans. Over 1,500 fans came to our first broadcast, and they’ve been with us until our final stage today, so thank you. I’m proud of all of our members for working hard.”

Maknae Dongwoon continued, “We achieved a triple crown for the first time since our debut, and our fancafe has also gotten over 200,000 fans. Since it was our first album, we felt more pressured and worried, but we feel that our fans gave us a lot of love. It was a month that felt like a good dream.”
When asked about their upcoming international activities, Yoseob replied, “We’ll be starting our Japanese promotions as well as our Asian fan meet tour, so we’re all waiting to meet our fans. We are preparing with hopes of showing a better image.”

110617 BEAST Yang Yoseob, “I objected the guerrilla concert in Japan” Why?

Idol group BEAST’s member Yang Yoseob stated “At first, I objected the guerrilla concert held in Japan on the 14th.”

On the afternoon of the 17th at a hotel restaurant in Yeoeuido, Seoul, Yang Yoseob met with enews and surprised us with this story. When we asked why, he answered “Truthfully, I had no confidence. (BEAST) is growing a lot right now, if we failed the guerrilla concert, it would have made a big impact mentally.”

Yang Yoseob said “When we first arrived at the airport in Japan, there were exactly 5 fans” and “After seeing this I thought ‘All activities were done very secretively,’”

He said “Truthfully I vaguely trusted that ‘someone in the company must have secretly posted an announcement about this.’ And I felt even more nervous.” And “I was worried that, what if we couldn’t even get a response right before the performance.”
However, on this day at Shinjuku station, around 5000 people came to watch BEAST’s guerrilla concert and the performance ended successfully. As BEAST started singing “Bad Girl” the fans started singing along to the song, the place resembling a BEAST concert.

Yang Yoseob said “I only started to relax after I saw people gathering. I was so thankful to the Japanese fans who came to watch the sudden concert” and “I think I gained more confidence for the Japanese promotions and tour performances through this performance” he stated with energy.
Meanwhile, BEAST ends their promotions for their first official album “Fiction and Fact” on the 19th on SBS “Inkigayo”. They have achieved triple crown on both cable channel Mnet ‘M!Countdown’ and KBS ‘Music Bank’, and have received many positive reponses, placing high on many online mp3 charts during their promotion period.
They plan on going to Japan on the 20th to promote ‘Bad Girl’ on site and then move on to their Asia tour and Japan tour after.

They debuted a year and 8 months ago. BEAST has released 4 mini-albums and a full album and they became one of Korea’s greatest male idol group. The first full album ‘Fiction and Fact’ hits 90000 sells (according to Hanteo Aggregate System) and the tittle song ‘Fiction’ ranked first in every broadcasting music program.

After wrapping-up their album promotion they are set to Japan on the 21st, while still in their promotional activities, we met up with BEAST at Yeouido, Yeondeungpo-gu in Seoul’s Marriott Hotel on the noon of the 17th.

‘Fiction is not a hook song, it’s a hit song that will climb it’s way up’

Lee Kikwang said "Like the weather that’s getting warmer, that is the feeling of the lyrics in ‘Fiction’ so we were worried about our activities" "But anyway, there are a lot of people who gives a lot of love and we are grateful" reminiscing their luck. In October of 2009, BEAST starts with ‘Bad Girl’ and continuously evolving with ‘Shock’, ‘Breath’ and ‘Beautiful’. Their fanclub is estimated to have 200000 B2UTYS. BEAST said "The number of fans are increasing but through our activities we get the ‘I love you the more popular you become’ feel".

One of the BEAST member who helped through the songs in the first album is Yong Junhyung. The 5th track ‘Freeze’ is one of the work of Yong Junhyung in his studying of composing. It is more meaningful since Yong Junhyung wrote it himself. "When an unknown rapper wrote the lyrics, we become too pride and they might get wounded" "I started doing activities with undergrounds and made friends with the underground rappers". Yong Junhyung also added "While the other members have their own personal activities, I was working at the recording studio, day and night" "I want to show something more than a fresh performance from this album".

“At first, the song was first heard by the CEO (Hong Seuhong, representative of Cube Entertainment) and his reaction was ‘What is this’. I panicked. Later Shinsadong Tiger hyung said ‘I have received a lot of reactions like that before’ and also added ‘Foolish people die, don’t panic’. I am determined to get my songs on the album, so the recordings, I’ve been doing my own directing. I don’t want the other members to bother me so I told them ‘Don’t bother me, I want some peace’. And so I got that peace."

Yong Junhyung pointed that he wants to work with FT Island singer, Lee Hongki. They want to see the combination of the band’s music. Yong Junhyung with Super Junior Kim Heechul, Supreme Team Simon D (SamD), FT Island Lee Hongki and Choi Jonghun sometimes together went for the ‘Chocoball’ social gathering.

BEAST’s earning principles are ‘to divide equally among the six’ but Yong Junhyung’s is separated from the rest. He said “The income is different every month. I set aside some money neatly for my parents. Firstly, I want to own my own recording studio and the money I get, I plan to buy a house for my parents. Maknae Son Dongwoon added “I want to buy my dad a new car” with a smile.

Son Dongwoon said “We are very busy with activities and whenever times got hard, I always think that ‘I have to be a good singer’” “If given a break, I want to go to on a one-week vacation to Jeju Island”.

‘This song is so BEAST!’ they want the song that represents them to become a hit.

Other members said “Even in <Immortal Song 2> he always reminded himself he’s a singer, not an idol from a 6 member group” “I wouldn’t do it if I were you”

Yoon Doojoon stated, “We can’t feel how popular we are overseas. If we try best in all the opportunities given to us, I believe that we will receive a great opportunity as well.”

He also added, “We are very thankful for the hotly response we are receiving as we promote ‘Fiction’, such as the number of first places we been getting.
