Article name[edit]

The article on the German band BAP is called "BAP (German band)". Why is it that there's no additional "(South Korean band)" on this article's title? It's not objective if one band has an additional explanation in the title and the other doesn't. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:25, 28 July 2012 (UTC)

Eat Your Kimchi Awards[edit]

BAP was nominated for several EYK awards. Best Rookie Group Best Dance Best Aegyo

BAP won best rookie and best aegyo

Zelo was nominated for Best Spudgy look-alike. Aesgaims (talk) 22:56, 8 December 2012 (UTC) BAP won best rookie and best aegyo

Seperate pages for B.A.P members.[edit]

Is there any way that we can get article pages for the other B.A.P members? So far Zelo is the only one with his own Wikipedia page. I understand that for some members there may not be enough information, but there should be enough information for Bang Yong Guk and Himchan to get their own Wikipedia pages.

:So you a baby/warrior, right? I'm the one who worked on Zelo, I was going to do Himchan's and BYG's pages next but I got busy furnishing Secret's pages. It takes time and effort to create articles. If you're really interested in B.A.P you can compile facts and infos about each members and put the website where you gathered that info cause its the most important part. You can do it in MS Word or in your own user page. Mazic (talk) 12:25, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

Done. :) All of them are still in the "Start" class except for BYG because the other's have no sufficient information about their backgrounds and only BYG has been pretty much active in the past. Mazic (talk) 18:18, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

Members list![edit]

The members list needs to get updated! Moon Jongup is listed as just a 'member' but in fact he is the main dancer. Here is the source to their official website where their profiles are listed. Please change this as soon as possible! (change the 'member' to 'main dancer', because it's common sence that he is the member just as the other five. Thank you! (talk) 12:02, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. The video is a primary source. You need to find a reliable secondary source discussing his role. Thanks, Celestra (talk) 16:32, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

B.A.P. Wikipedia page members.[edit]

I would like to request that the Members section of the B.A.P page be edited. It says "Jongup (종업) Member[26]" I think instead of saying "Member" it should say "Main Dancer". This is because it's obvious that he's a member like the rest of them, but on this page it has written all of the individual members' roles except for his. I think my request is fair. Here is proof. At the top of the page in the second sentence it says "He is best known as the main dancer of the South Korean K-pop group, B.A.P." Thank you :) Kailexie (talk) 08:41, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. Unfortunately, the Wikipedia article you mention uses this page as a source, and it doesn't support the claim. I've tagged that article. If you can give us a reliable source outside Wikipedia, we can do it. Thanks. --Stfg (talk) 14:33, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Members section- with legitimate sources.[edit]

Hello, the last person who has edited the members section has completely messed it all up. I'd like to have that fixed, and I will provide as many sources as possible. Bang Yongguk is not only their leader, but also the main rapper. Kim Himchan is a sub-vocalist and the visual/face of the group. Jung Daehyun is a lead vocal. Yoo Youngjae is also a lead vocal. Moon Jongup is the main dancer and a sub-vocalist. Zelo is the lead dancer, lead rapper, and maknae.

Some of this info is shown on their official Japanese site, but it is vague. This is the most reliable fan page to date of B.A.P, with full member profiles and such: <- that is Yongguk's profile, and each other member's profile can be shown by clicking their name to the right of the page. I will search and provide further info if needed, but the current members list is appalling. It makes them all look like nothing.

Jongup's status as "member"...[edit]

There are lack of articles written in English that states Jongup as the main dancer of the group. One of the limited ones include that listed on their official website ( With all due respect but listing him as a "member" because of a early article that lacks correct information just does not make sense. Jongup have stated in multiple interviews that he is the main dancer of the group; would transcripts of those interview be a valid source, according to your definition of a "valid source"? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sumdingwrungwitme (talkcontribs) 11:50, 27 December 2013 (UTC)

Edit request[edit]

I am very grateful for all the hard work that has gone into this page. However, I would really like to request a change of description when it comes to Jongup, who is listed simply as a "Member" of B.A.P. Whilst this is of course true, I think it would be much more valuable for fans to recognize his actual position in B.A.P, as "Main Dancer". I understand that sources are very important here. I can offer more than one to you that I hope you can understand and take into consideration as truth.

1.) - This is B.A.PS's offical Japanese site, confirmed by TSENT. If we go to the profile page and select "Jongup", this image appears Please, please notice that the terms "Dance" and "Vocal" are used, and there is no mention of him simply being a "Member". As this is an accurate, offical, and reliable B.A.P source, I think this should be something to base member information off.

2.) - Jongup's own Wikepedia page states "known as the main dancer of the South Korean K-pop group, B.A.P."

3.) - This is a very popular tumblr blog dedicated to member of B.A.P. As you can see, they have recognized Jongup as the main dancer, and so many fans feed off this information.

4.) - This site is the highest views "K-pop Profile Generator" on the web. As you can see, they also state Jongup to be the "Main Dancer".

5.) - This is B.A.P's Official Korean Website. If you click the image of Jongup ( it shows the Jongup is in fact associated with "Dance" and "Vocal" skills, and is a property of TSENT. If you are unwilling to state that he is in-fact the "Main Dancer", at least put into the context that he is internationally know as the "Dancer" and "Sub Vocalist."

6.) - According to some of your other sources (e.g [27]) you see "MTVK" as a reliable source, reliable enough to see it as a confirmation of members roles. In this video, it clearly shows Jongup saying "I'm B.A.P's vocalist and main dancer Jong Up." (0:55) If I may just point out that there has been a translation error here, as what the subtitles have quoted Jongup as a "coreographer", he is does in fact say "Main Dancer" instead.

7.) - SuKiRa is a VERY popular radio station in korea, listened to by thousands of korean citizens. At the 9:34 mark, we see the interviewee ask "then the member who dances the best?" B.A.P member daehyun answers by saying "it would be our two maknaes (jongup and zelo)". As this was aired to a lot of people, do you not think that this is a piece of correct and reliable information, since it was confirmed by members of B.A.P.

I do not mean to come out rude and I apologize if I have, but I honestly believe that this needs to be changed.

If I may offer an example, I would like to select his fellow member "Youngjae". According to his wikepedia page, (* he is "known mononymously" as the "Lead vocalist of a popular South Korean K-pop group, B.A.P." This is a true statement, however Jongup is also "known mononymously" as the "Main Dancer", so I am confused as to why this has not been stated.

I am aware that you have "sourced" this fact on Youngjae's Wikepedia page * as [1]. Yet, when I followed the link given, I see no evidence of him being the "Lead Vocalist", so I am unaware of why this page has been used as a source for this information.

I am also confused over the fact that on Jongup's Wikepedia page (, the information stated: "known as main dancer of South Korean K-pop group, B.A.P" is given the same source of [1], yet with an added link of [not in citation given]. This is concerning, as none of the other members had this beside their [1] source.

It is upsetting as a fan (this is shared by the fandom) when Jongup's role in B.A.P in not stated, and the rest of the Members have theirs clearly stated when they have no more evidence than Jongup.

Jongup has made it clear in almost every interview he has ever partaken, that he is the "Main Dancer" and "Sub-vocalist", as his fellow members have addressed their positions the same way. He has always been given many solo dance stages during music videos, concerts and fanmeets, as well as singing roles in songs, plus he is also the member selected to partake in "dance battles" as well as showing his dancing skills on "variety shows".

I am not sure of what you define as a "valid source", but those already provided in the member list are not valid, and the ones I have posted above (1.), 2.), 3.), 4.), 5.), 7.) are.

Giving Jongup the title of a mere "member" due to the error of previous articles, is really not suitable to match current affairs and well-know facts with thin the fandom, and not to mention the K-pop industry.

Please think about my words and assess the truth and well-being behind them.

Thank you reading, I hope I have made a successful difference to Jongup's profile.

BAP has planned a comeback for February 2014 and the article should be changed to state their scheduled comback ( The Third of February ) and the album name ( First Sensibility ) along with the promotional track ( 1004 (Angel) ) The title track is pronounced chun-sa, meaning the number 1004, or Angel, in Korean.

Milkicream (talk) 21:51, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

 Done Someone else has added a section on First Sensibility, "1004 (Angel)", and the group's comeback et for February 3. Arjayay (talk) 17:44, 17 February 2014 (UTC)


The missing dot B.A.P (missing) is not enough to distinguish from other B.A.P. at BAP. Hence should really be WP:MOVEd to B.A.P (Korean band), given BAP (German band). This should be uncontroversial? In ictu oculi (talk) 00:08, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

I think WP:HAT is enough to distinguish between both bands. However, if a move is necessary, B.A.P (K-pop band) might be a better choice because "Korean" refers to both S.Korean and N.Korean. This makes it a rather ambiguous term to describe nationality. -A1candidate (talk) 16:59, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

What makes this article in any way notable? The band has only been together for 3 years and all of the references are press releases or marketing efforts. None of these are reliable sources.David Condrey (talk) 18:27, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
