Words and Photos by Ava Sharra Sumortin
Korean boy group B1A4 spent some time with the members of the media earlier today. This is the group’s first time in the Philippines, and Jinyoung, CNU, Sandeul, Baro, and Gongchan cannot wait for the Filipino BANAs to join their Road Trip.
One of the first things that Jinyoung said during the press conference was that he we was so thankful to the Filipinos fans. The welcome they received when they arrived at the airport was surprising. He remembers fans chanting their name.

B1A4 also recently released their new album "Solo Day." One of the songs from this album is Baro's favorite. Baro said that listening to "Glass of Water" makes you feel happy. This song also goes well with the season.

"Solo Day" is the group's latest single. Their music video is quirky and shows different characters for each member. It was asked if their characters in the video are similar to their real life personality. Sandeul explained that he was different from his pizza delivery guy character because he doesn't want to share his food! CNU then said that his character, a guy with OCD, is somewhat similar to him. He is not as bad as the one he played in the video, though, but he's definitely one of the cleanest members of the group.

The huge support that the group received from Filipino BANAs is one of the reasons that they chose to include Manila in their first world tour "Road Trip." Jinyoung explained that during B1A4's fan events in Korea, a lot of Filipino fans attend these events and ask the group to come to the Philippines.

Now that they are in the country, what are the things that they want to experience? Sandeul enthusiastically raised his hand and answered lechon. Then, Gongchan said that he wants to see Boracay.

Well, Filipino BANAs, it's time to show the group what the Philippines has to offer; B1A4 wants you to go on this Road Trip with them! Catch them tomorrow at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
