interview
AlphaBAT
They debuted in 2013 and after going through many difficulties they remain a group and are already advancing on their own by creating their own company APB Entertainment.
The group debuted in 2013, but after 2014 the group went into a break for 3 years. What was the reason for such a long break?
B:eta
We didn't really talk about this, but we had a difficult situation. There were participants who continued their journey to the dream, but there were those who could not do this. I would say that this was a period of changes in the structure of the group. In my case, after the army, it took time to accept the changes, and the preparation for the comeback was delayed.
About new members. L:ambda, how do you feel a year after joining the group?
L:ambda
I like our group and what we do. At the moment, I am satisfied with everything and continue to work as a member of the group.
Was there time for creativity in the army?
B:eta
For me, the army has become a place where I could reflect on a lot. I thought about what happened before and how to develop further.

K:appa
I returned from the army before becoming part of AlphaBAT. Then I also had a lot of thoughts. When I was in the army, I did not serve in the ground forces, but in the auxiliary police. I thought about what I should do after the army, and now I am happy that I met AlphaBAT.

L:ambda
I also served in the army before joining AlphaBAT. In my case, I trained to become an idol all the time before the army and already abandoned my dream. I did not think much about singing while I was in the army. However, after its completion, I received a call from the agency and returned to activity again.
G:amma, other members are not jealous of your growth?
G:amma
The participants do not envy me, but rather think: "If I were as tall, what would it be?" Perhaps they are a little sorry, but they do not envy me. It seems everyone is happy with their growth.

B:eta
In fact, we have the opposite. Since G: amma is the highest, he is most uncomfortable.
What kind of music do you prefer?
B: eta
I like BTS, Big Bang, Lauv, Troye Sivan, Ed Sheeran. I listen to various artists, but lately I like our senior colleagues BTS and Big Bang.
Do you have a favorite female idol group?What kind of music do you prefer?
G:amma
I like ITZY. From a musical point of view, they create modern music, and their choreography and performances, in general, are well correlated with each other. The songs are well-composed and interesting, and even the clothes fit this style. I am very inspired by their performances.

K:appa
I will choose the group Red Velvet. If we talk about the reason, then among the participants there is Seulgi, who dances very well. In addition, Red Velvet also constantly release music in a contemporary style. If you carefully watch their performances, you will notice how complicated their choreography is. It is she who makes the group's performances memorable.

L:ambda
I like the MAMAMOO band. They really enjoy their time on stage, and this is a matter of great respect. We know how difficult it is to look relaxed on stage, but they do an excellent job.

B:eta
It seems to me that our participants also enjoy their performances. We really love the scene.
