Not black but a darker shade of blond, according to their last facebook post. Gosh that blonde noodle hair was tragic :unsure:

 

I got this from a reddit bebop page:

 

"Things have been a bit too quiet around Bebop lately, so in a true cross-subreddit collaboration a few of us got together to reach out to them and learn what the band has been up to. With their press contact information fortunately publically available,/u/jyp_ from /r/Korean very kindly lent us his native-speaking skills and struck up a short phone conversation with their manager, Bok Ji-won. Turns out that Bebop are currently busy working on a new album - the release date isn't known yet, but at least now we have something to look forward to :)" CR

 

So hopefully it doesn't take long.

No problem, I've been slightly lurking Bebop ever since I'm The Best MV came out. I absolutely love how they've been using busking to promote themselves, something fresh out of kpop. Be Lazy is my favorite song from them.

Definitely is Ju Woo, I don't think Ayeon does any vocals for any of their songs. Don't worry it's not dumb, busking is basically street performing (usually for money.)

Thanks for clarifying that. Yeah its certainly some different for kpop. Its good promo in my opinion too. Lots of different people can check them out. I can't wait for their next release!

No problem. I'm sure it's a lot cheaper than advertising on TV and stuff. Plus, hearing someone's actual vocals is uncommon in kpop, they usually have the MR to hide behind if their voice isn't that strong (especially for a group who just debuted.) Which is why I really fell for them, live instruments, real vocals, beautiful ladies, what more could I ask for. I'm super stoked for their next release too.

Now that you mention it like this, they really ARE a rare group. I mean I always knew this but I neve. really thought about them like this before. It makes them all the more special since their performances are raw and their able to interact more with fans from the start.

Ayeon did record vocals for

, one of their electronica collaborations with Humming Urban Stereo - which was before Ji-In joined the group and took over lead vocals.

 

Happy to see a Bebop thread on OneHallyu btw! I run the Bebop subreddit which was referenced earlier.

I completely forgot about Maem Maem... It was actually the first song I heard from them. (I actually left a comment on that video 11 months ago now that I look at it.) It would be nice to hear more of Ayeon's voice, but I'm sure it's not easy to drum and sing at the same time.

A rare breed indeed. I'm not a fan of lip syncing, or even using MR, so they really stood out to me - and how many groups play an instrument. They had fancams of them uploaded before their actual debut; that's some nice free advertisement. And yea, even though I can't understand anything, they're always talking to the crowd during their performances which is really nice to see.

Hi, welcome to the thread and OneHallyu :D No wonder your username seemed familiar. Its really cool thay you guys were able to contact Bebop's people.

Yeah, that was a fun little operation :). I actually tried doing it myself originally (they have the call relay system that picks up play a few seconds of I'm the Best and everything), but it went about as well as I had anticipated - Mr. Bok couldn't do English and my Korean is too poor to carry on a proper conversation, so it was a short and fruitless exchange. But then I managed to sign up someone to help me luckily :).

 

 

And I agree Bebop are special! They're effectively the only female entry spanning the spectrum of idol pop to real band, especially with AOA Black not having been seen in action in quite some time now. The last attempt at something like this was perhaps

... but the vocal talent wasn't really there (they're
though).

 

Speaking of Bebop live, here's a playlist of their first (and so far only) proper indoors gig:

I apologize for not resisting the temptation to double-post, but I thought for completeness it'd be cool to add the so far two releases in their "251Project" series of cover songs:

 

 

They also performed Cherry Blossom Ending live on The Show once, and before that during a really fun radio appearance (in a radio show MC'd by Kim Hyung-Tae - Busker Busker's bassist).

 

 

 

in a subway station (with Ayeon on keyboard!). This subway performance was put on for a MBC documentary crew who were collecting footage for some sort of short segment, but they've done busking performances in similar spots too.

 

Trivia: 251Project is a reference to a common chord progression.

It was nice that they were willing to help  :smile: and that Mr.Bok was willing to share some info on Bebop's plans.

Sweet Revenge sounds good though, the vocalist kind of looks like Taeyeon. I like that edgier rock sound! Hopefully Bebop does something similar to it. As for AOA Black...omg I had so many hopes for them to be Korea's girl band but that went away with AOA White's success. I doubt they'll be having a comeback anytime soon.

 

Ooh thanks for sharing these videos! I'll check them out.
