12.08.31 B2ST’s Yoseob explains his mood swings?

B2ST‘s Yoseob explained his mood swings on the recent filming of ‘B2ST on QTV‘.
The other members of B2ST decided to poke fun at Yoseob on the show by asking him if he’s bipolar. Yoseob answered, “I’m just very clear about my emotions when I feel happy or down, I don’t do that when nothing’s happened.”
“Though if there’s an opportunity, I’m the type to think a lot and suffer through things by myself, [you guys are ganging up on me and making it seem like] I have bipolar disorder.”
The B2ST members responded, “We think bipolar disorder is a bit much. It’s better to express your emotions clearly so that when you sing a sad song or a happy song, you can communicate the feelings well.”
This episode of ‘B2ST on QTV’ will be aired on September 1 at 11PM KST on QTV.

Boy group B2ST‘s influence has been spreading even to book stores as their new comic book, ‘The Beast‘, has already sold out of its 13,000 released copies.
An insider stated, “We’ve started a secondary printing, as all of the copies from our first printing sold out. In the comic book field, 13,000 copies is a huge number. We were extremely surprised by the large number of copies sold“.
Another insider at Kyobo Books stated, “As of now, ‘The Beast’ is doing very well in terms of copies sold and readers’ responses. The response was even faster than the influence of other stars in videos or dramas. It could be because this is the first time we’ve had a Hallyu group star in a comic book series. We were worried at first, but that concern has completely disappeared. Online, the book has been receiving good reviews in comparison to other latest releases.
B2ST will be holding a fan signing event on September 3rd to celebrate the release of ‘The Beast’.
‘The Beast’ was the work of Jena and features all six members, who are given superpowers in the fantasy-action plot.

Do you remember hitting me earlier for not laughing?“, “Do you remember hitting me in the head with a soccer ball?“, “Do you remember borrowing money from me?” and more causing laughter to fill the studio.
Junhyung followed up and said, “Do you know you’re not funny lately? After ‘Sweet Rain’ it was over for you“.  Kikwang asked, “Our Doojoon, you try so hard at acting but do you know it’s kind of awkward?” shocking Doojoon. However the greatest laughter came from maknae Dongwoon when he said, “You know most people think of Kikwang when you say B2ST?
With the members burying their leader, more laughter followed throughout the show. And with another episode next week, fans can’t wait for more.
