Set to wrap up promotional activities for “Missing You” this week, BTOB recently sat down to talk about the success of their latest song, as well to share their end-of-the-year plans.
The group has hit a home run with their latest song “Missing You,” taking their 6th win for the song on Mnet’s “M!Countdown” on November 2. As the song had topped various music charts as soon it was released, BTOB has enjoyed great success from beginning to end with their latest promotional activities. The members smiled as they said, “Every comeback, we tell ourselves to just enjoy the comeback and not worry too much about rankings, but we were so happy to have done so well this time around. We’ve been so happy since our first week of activities. So we have no regrets. It’s been such a happy time for us.”
Looking back on the first win they got for “Missing You,” Yook Sung Jae said, “We’re in our sixth year now. We’ll soon be entering our seventh year together, and we’ve had a lot of happy moments, sad moments, and we’ve cried a lot. I thought I’d cry when we won our first trophy [for the song], and I did get emotional but I didn’t cry. Maybe it’s because we’ve shed so many tears till now.”
He went on to say, “Till now, we’ve been saying to each other that we should just focus on the music and not worry about awards. But a great thing that came from us winning music show awards was seeing our fans being even happier than we were to win. Seeing our Melodies be happy for us made us even happier. When we have fansign events, we actually end up being the ones congratulating them [instead of the other way around]. The members are happy and Melodies are happy, and I think we’re even happier because our fans tell us that we look happy.”
BTOB also shared their end-of-the-year plans. Eunkwang said, “I think we’re busiest at the beginning and the end of the year. Though our album promotional activities are over, I think we’ll be doing a lot of end-of-the-year performances. Like always, we’ll be busy preparing for concerts and awards show performances.”
Lastly, the BTOB members said, “We’re already talking about our next album. Nothing’s been decided yet, but we will definitely be picking great songs for our next album as well. As long as the songs are good, we’re happy. Whenever we choose a title track, we all listen to the songs together and share our opinions before making a decision, and that’s how it will be for our next album as well.”
