BtoB (/ˈb.t.b/; Korean: 비투비; acronym for Born to Beat) is a South Korean boy group formed in 2012 by Cube Entertainment. The group consists of Eunkwang, Minhyuk, Changsub, Hyunsik, Peniel, Ilhoon, and Sungjae. The group debuted on March 21, 2012, performing on M! Countdown with "Insane" and "Imagine".[1] They released their first full-length album, Complete, in 2015.[2]

Career[edit]

Pre-debut[edit]

The group was formed by Cube Entertainment. It was stated from the start that Seo Eunkwang, Lee Minhyuk, Lim Hyunsik, Jung Ilhoon and Lee Minwoo were on the list of original members who are waiting to be debuted under the name of "BtoB". They appeared on the JTBC sitcom "I Live in Cheongdam-dong" as an aspiring boy band working towards their debut.[3] However, Lee Minwoo had dropped out of the list of confirmed members after their first appearance on the sitcom and the fact of him not debuting with BtoB had upset many fans. On March 23, 2012, Cube Entertainment had clarified that there were problems with Minwoo's health, resulting in him being unable to blend into the group. Adding on, he would still be a trainee under Cube. If he was to recover, he would still get a chance to debut. Minwoo was confirmed to debut as a C-Clown member under Yedang Entertainment.[4]

2012: Born to Beat, Asia Promotions and Press Play[edit]
