On April 13th, the B.A.P
boys touched down in New York for their 2nd ever concert in the Big Apple!
One of the staff members told me that there were girls waiting overnight, and I know some people who were there from the crack of dawn to see their boys up close. The doors opened at 6:30, and fans poured into the Best Buy Theater to get as close as they could.
Sadly enough, with so little space to breathe and move comfortably, I saw one girl getting carried out even before the concert started. Throughout the concert, the crowd had to part here and there to allow room for various girls to get carried out. All this even though the staff did their best to cool the audience down by fanning them, cranking up the AC, spraying them with cool water, and handing out water bottles continuously
Heechul recently posed for "CeCi" magazine"s China issue and sat down for an interview in which he talked about relationships and aging.

Through "We Got Married - Global Edition," I am reflecting on my past relationships in which I failed to treat them well. I am learning new things through and through while on the program."

Shin Dong then asked, “MBLAQ has an image of ‘a group made by Rain.’ Is Rain no longer involved?” Seungho answered, “Before Rain hyung enlisted in the army, he told us, ‘I helped you guys a lot, but you need to learn how to do things yourselves and think for yourselves
