In the world of entertainment, it’s almost second nature for artistes to provide fan service for their adoring fans, but B.A.P’s attentiveness to their fans has got us thinking that they’ve gone beyond that, dishing out what we call fan love instead.

From posing for photos at every turn, smiling at every fan-made board that they saw or turning to the sides and back to catch a glimpse of the fans who weren’t directly in front of them (we could tell every time this happened because we’d hear a sudden spike in elated shrieking from that direction), B.A.P managed to dispense this fan love with gusto, all while handling the media and host’s questions like a pro.

Daehyun, who will turn 22 tomorrow, was also treated to an early birthday surprise from the fans, who burst out into an impromptu birthday song towards the end of the press conference. When asked about his birthday wishes, the star grinned, “It’s enough for me that I can meet my fans through our concert for my birthday.” Now that’s some fan love right there.

It's been a long time coming for fans of Korean sextet B.A.P, collectively known as BABYz. Their last visit to Singapore was in September 2014, which was a few months after they held solo concert B.A.P LIVE ON EARTH SINGAPORE 2014 in May.

Touching down in Singapore barely a few hours prior to the press conference yesterday (June 26), the members looked visibly tired after holding their concert in Bangkok the day before. Despite that, they put on their game faces for the media and fans gathered at their open press conference at City Square Mall.

Fielding questions from the media while fans tried (not-so-successfully) to shush one another in a bid to hear their voices, B.A.P spoke about their ideal types (notably, Zelo thinks Singaporean girls are pretty while Youngjae likes girls with pretty eyes), what makes them feel good, what they do when they visit foreign cities (research about the country’s food and language before they visit) and more, but what stood out most is how much attention they pay to their BABYz.
