While most Koreans are celebrating the three-day harvest festival of Chuseok this week, the boys of B.A.P. have a different reason for celebration; Tuesday marked 600 days since the group was formed.
Band members Dae Hyun and Him Chan of B.A.P., which stands for Best Absolute Perfect, sent messages of appreciation and Chuseok greetings to fans (known as "Babys") to commemorate the milestone.
"It's already been 600 days, wow!" Dae Hyun wrote to his half a million Twitter followers.
"Time flies so fast. It's because our Babys were with us that we didn't realize how much time passed. I hope you all have a fun Chuseok, and no matter what anyone says, Babys are the best. Thank you."
Him Chan expressed his gratitude to the fans with an Instagram message that included the hashtag #ILoveBaby.
"600 days have passed by at the blink of an eye," he wrote.
"Although I always know that you're beside us, it's hard to express what I feel. I'm sorry. You know that I love you more than anyone else?"
The rapper's Chuseok greetings included some practical advice.
"Spend your Chuseok holiday well, and the temperature is fluctuating rapidly, so be careful of catching a cold and dress warmly," Him Chan wrote.
Both members of the six-member all-male hip-hop group included a photo with their post.
B.A.P. wrapped up a brief promotional tour last week, scheduled to coincide with their release of three new singles "Coffee Shop," "Hurricane," and "BADMAN."
The band plans to make their Japanese debut in October.
B.A.P. fan Sillydilly Lily thinks the band deserves a break.
"I hope they take a much needed rest after their Japanese promotions," Lily wrote on the allkpop message board.
"These boys have been working hard nonstop ever since they debuted, and a rest might be a good idea after it all. Even so, I hope everything goes well for them, and that they enjoy the upcoming holiday season with rest too."
Fan OhYeahOhYeah was underwhelmed by B.A.P.'s recent return.
"[Next] time I hope it will be a better comeback," she wrote.
"I'm not a hater, just saying, this comeback I didn't like, and I don't see anything bad in my words, since they themselves said that they want to try different styles, so I respect that. It's just that out of all the comebacks this one didn't suit my taste."
