“United Cube” Lands in Japan to Insane Chaos with Appearances by B2ST-BTOB-4Minute
【February 25=KEJ Hyejin Koo / Translator Eunbee Kim】B2ST, 2Minute, and BTOB were among many artists who came together for the 2013 United CUBE Concert, which took place on the 21st at the Yokohama Arena and provided for a marvelous sight for all who attended.
Initiating a second part to the concert that took place in August of 2011, the artists participating in the concert followed a theme of artists being invited to the “Cube Party” and shared a collaborative stage.
BTOB opened the stage with “Irresistible Lips” and ‘Secret”, and also covered V6’s hit single “Feel Your Breeze” to the thunderous applause of the audience. BTOB’s Yook Sung Jae and 4Minute’s Kwon So Hyun share the role of being the youngest of their respective groups and performed ‘Trouble Maker”. During the performance, B2ST’s Jang Hyun Seung and 4Minute’s Hyuna emerged to show off their collaborative sexy charm.
The next stage consisted of female voices with 4Minute’s sub-group 2YOON consisting of Jeon Ji Yoon and Heo Ga Yoon’s performance of “24/7”. Switching the role of “MC” throughout the night, the two also performed “2 HOT” and “TOP GIRL” on the stage. B2ST’s Yang Yoseob and Jang Hyun Seung also received the jealousy and admiration of fans upon performing duets “What I Would Do if I Were to have a Lover” and “I’ll Back Off, Have a Nice Life”.
Rookie No Ji Hoon drew eyes with his modern stage presence when he performed “I Must Be Suffering” and “MAKER”. 4Minute, who bewitched the crowd with their exposed skin in “Volume Up”, also showed off their sexy charisma with “Muzik”, “Mirror Mirror”, “Hot Issue”, and “Heart to Heart”, some of their most popular tracks. There were many cheers from the audience when B2ST performed ‘FICTION” and Hyuna from 4 Minute performed her solo track “Ice Cream”.
The last performance of the night was taken by B2ST. After performing in between sets throughout the night, B2ST finally was able to hold a stage just for their group at the end of the night that elicited many fervent cheers from fans, with hit tracks such as “It’s a Lovely Night”, “Fiction”, “Shock”, and “On the Day it Rains”. As it was the first time for B2ST coming onto a Japanese stage since October of last year, Japanese fans shared their undying support and followed along to the Korean lyrics of their songs. Lee Ki Kwang said, “We’re really happy to be performing with our Cube family once again after such a long time. I’m the happiest about all six of our B2ST members coming together to perform as one again, especially. We are the best when we 6 are together,” he shared about the activities the members have been participating in.
Jang Hyun Seung shared, “Our plan is to be releasing a new album sometime during the first half of the year, and until then, members will be busy working on their solo drama activities, so we really ask that everyone bears with us and supports us.” Yoon Doo Joon, who is currently filming “Iris 2”, promised, “After everyone finishes learning and studying, we hope to bring to fans an even better B2ST.”
This hot three hour concert ended to BTOB, 4Minute, No Ji Hoon, and B2ST singing “FLY HIGH”.
