After years of training, Gongchan joined as a vocalist and the youngest member of B1A4. On April 11, 2011, WM Entertainment revealed Gongchan as the third member after releasing the news of B1A4 along with Jinyoung and Baro's pictures. Sandeul and CNU were revealed in the next two days.
After their debut, B1A4 was invited to star in MTV's reality show Match Up with Block B. As one of the projects for the show, B1A4 filmed a music video for "Only Learnt The Bad Things (못된 것만 배워서)."
