The birth of “Born to Beat”

BTOB as known as Born To Beat was formed in 2012 by Cube Entertainment. The group was started in a show where they need to compete all the way and to beat the challengers to survive.

AMAZON ( Idol MASTER ZONE) chose them to be the first group for reality show. There were 5 members to start the group Seo Eunkwang, Lee Minhyuk, Lim Hyunsik, Jung IlHoon and Lee Minwoo.

April 2013 was not a “fool month” for them when they released their second comeback single. BTOB also held a fan’s day in Taiwan where thousands of fans were thrilled seeing their idol.

January 2014, a new year has begun with a bang! They released an image of “car and horn’s noise” the Ddui Ddui Bbang Bbang. On February 2014, Beep beep song was uploaded on YouTube.
