[NEWS] B.A.P sees EXO as colleagues more than rivals
With their impending comeback just around the corner, B.A.P participated in several interviews about their music as well as their success to date. One question that especially piqued interest was the one regarding the group's rivalry with EXO, who has also been growling their way into fans' hearts with their own comeback.
On the question of whether they see EXO as rivals, Daehyun and Himchan shared, "Although we debuted in the same year, we consider them as colleagues more than competitors. It feels good to see them doing well and we think it is something to congratulate them for. More so than seeing it as rivalry, we see it as having a well-intentioned competition. Through the competition, we hope that we both can rise up step-by-step. Not just EXO, but there are also many other groups that debuted in the same year, and we think there is a lot to learn from all those groups. As we learn from our colleagues of the same year, we also feel a sense of responsibility to do as much as them."
Youngjae and Jongup also delivered a message for fans about their upcoming return as they said, "This was the longest we've been away since our debut. We wanted to make good quality music as much as we've been away, and we have input things we have learned during the hiatus. It'd be nice if you could really anticipate this album. We think that if we take things step by step, we can do the many things we dream of. We hope many of you will anticipate our music and give us attention through 'BADMAN'."
It doesn't seem like these boys have anything to worry about as BABYs are already buzzing high with anticipation for the group's comeback after the video teaser that was just released, promising an epic MV coming up on August 6!
