Their performance that day was met with praise, with many concert spectators and fans considering them to be the next TVXQ.
MBLAQ's first single, "Oh Yeah", was released to the public through a music video on October 14, 2009 together with their debut single album, Just BLAQ. Afterwards, they had their broadcast debut on Mnet's M! Countdown, performing their single. The group also made their Japanese debut on May 3, 2011. They held an event at the Kanagawa Lazona Kawasaki Plaza, which gathered a reported 10,000 fans. A day later, on May 4, they released their first Japanese album Your Luv. The album immediately reached first position at the Oricon Daily Charts, selling more that 11,000 copies.
The group has starred in various South Korean variety shows as guests. They also had their own variety shows such as Mnet's MBLAQ - The Art of Seduction, MBC's MBLAQ's Idol Army, Mnet's Sesame Player and KBS's Hello Baby Season 5.
Since their debut, MBLAQ has released three single albums, six extended play albums, one studio album, one repackaged studio album, and two EPs in Korean. They also released one compilation album, four singles and four DVDs in Japanese.

Yang Seung-ho was born on October 16, 1987 in Seoul. His family consists of a mother, a father, and a younger brother named Yang Seung-hoon. When he was young, his family moved to Anyang, Gyeonggi and was raised there. He attended Anyang High School of Arts, where he became the school captain and class president during that time. After high school, he enrolled at the Sejong University of Film Arts but left afterwards due to MBLAQ's busy schedule. He now attends at the Kyung Hee Cyber University.
Seungho is the only member in the group who uses his real name; his stage name was originally intended to be "Mir" but he rejected it. His hobbies include playing the guitar and piano (for which MBLAQ's fans gave him the nickname "Yang Chopin"). Other hobbies include playing soccer, beatboxing, break dancing, performing card tricks, knitting, and mending objects. Yang had also taken classes in gymnastics, judo, and hapkido, whilst his favorite genre of music is electronic.
