At least that’s what we think they said above the screams

SINGAPORE — We tried our best to bring you, dear readers, a juicy and exciting story from the B.A.P press conference this evening (Aug 7).

After all, the Korean boy band will be holding its first full-fledged concert in Singapore the next day (with a little help from main sponsor, MediaCorp’s MEclub).

Armed with a full list of questions for Bang Yong Guk, Zelo, Him Chan, Dae Hyun, Young Jae and Jong Up, we made our way to City Square Mall.

There, we were greeted by what we assume to be the typical K-pop meet-and-greet scenario: An overwhelmed translator who could not be heard or understood over the screams of hundreds of excited teenage girls, while a reticent boy band offered polite answers in response to polite questions.

Here’s what we managed to salvage.

Q: What are your first impressions of Singapore?

Yong Guk: Singapore is very clean, and the people are very nice. The Babies (erm, B.A.P fans) are so pretty.
