B.A.P's Himchan injures his hand & Greeting for Naver and Olleh








B.A.P’s Himchan fractured his finger.

Himchan, who is in charge of vocals in B.A.P, was going to ride a car around 10 days ago, when he slipped and fractured his ring and pinky finger. After receiving surgery, Himchan is currently resting at his parents’ house.

Himchan is currently wearing a cast on his hand and wrist, and the hospital that he received surgery at said that he will need to rest up for now, and it will probably be difficult for him to participate in ‘One Shot’ promotions, which is planning to show ‘total manly performances’ with choreography such as the ‘push up’ dance.

Their entertainment company said, “More than anything, he and the members are feeling the saddest.” They added, “The disappointment seems to be larger, because this album was one that all six members worked harder than ever on since they felt that they were showing the true colors of B.A.P in a long time through ‘One Shot’.”

Wishing him a speedy recovery, talk about timing...

...so because of a pinky/ring finger fracture he's just not going to perform at all?
purring_feline 13th-Feb-2013 01:50 am (UTC)
He certainly won’t be able to dance. Yongguk did perform with a cast on during Power so who knows?
epona 13th-Feb-2013 01:55 am (UTC)
only the parts where they put their hands on the ground tho right? everything else should be doable with a pinky fracture
purring_feline 13th-Feb-2013 01:59 am (UTC)
IDK, there's a lot of arm swinging and air punching, it would be painful. I wish he'll pull a Minho and sit on a throne/at the feet of the Matoki singing his lines.
jenny_grey 13th-Feb-2013 02:16 am (UTC)
I think a throne would be awesome...

...and very apt, lol.
milkandmolasses 13th-Feb-2013 01:50 am (UTC)
the choreography for One Shot is intense, if he performs it then he's at risk of causing greater damage, if he doesn't he'll look out of place compared to the others because it's such a strong dance
epona 13th-Feb-2013 01:55 am (UTC)
idk i was thinking they could just lighten his parts a bit but he doesn't really do much in the group anyway does he
supplanter 13th-Feb-2013 02:03 am (UTC)
Not usually... though I wonder if they'll just do the routine as if he's there, or if they'll have Jongup take his parts (it won't sound as good) or have BYG take them (could be great! XD)

It's a good thing they aren't promoting Punch, since I think he sings more of the chorus there (like in No Mercy).
milkandmolasses 13th-Feb-2013 02:05 am (UTC)
he has quite a few main parts in One Shot, it would be really difficult to lighten it plus I'm guessing it's partial damage limitation considering TS probably want him back to his normal state for the concerts at the end of the month
sub_divided 13th-Feb-2013 04:29 am (UTC)
At this point I kind of like him better than BYG... not as a person, of course, but he's got a pretty good and versatile voice and good musical sense.
deerlike 13th-Feb-2013 04:50 pm (UTC)
Not sure if you're being snide with the "he doesn't really do much in the group anyway does he," but while he is the visual of BAP, he has a reasonable amount of parts, particularly in this mini-album and the songs they're promoting.
onlylexy 14th-Feb-2013 12:16 am (UTC)
Having a fractured finger sends pain through the wrist and arm and is extremely painful. Don't brush it off so easily.
oreoandtwist 13th-Feb-2013 02:14 am (UTC)
It'll be hard with the pushup dance and falling down parts though for sure. And they are flailing their arms and hands all over the place. It'll be painful.

I think they are just taking a precaution in case it does get worse, especially with the concert coming up soon.

Though I do hope he'll just be around even just to sing (probably seated somewhere in the stage).
badoy 13th-Feb-2013 01:48 am (UTC)
>_< i wish he could attend shows and just sing his parts. like what seungho did.
supplanter 13th-Feb-2013 01:59 am (UTC)
Yeah, the dance is impossible (or very much inadvisable), but I don't get what they have against putting ppl in chairs to sing. That chick from Hello Venus missed out on 2 rounds of promos and I don't even get why. >.>
jenny_grey 13th-Feb-2013 02:14 am (UTC)
I hope he gets well soon and this isn't some weird coverup for something else (I'm so cynical, look what you've done to me, kpop). just put him in a chair off to the side like minho, haha
hellicoptajuuce 13th-Feb-2013 07:33 am (UTC)
its a coverup, yongguk's anus was cray strong. yongguk mustve been doing kegels
prettyminstrel 13th-Feb-2013 01:18 pm (UTC)
lies!!1 yongguk doesn't bottom! /denial
onlylexy 14th-Feb-2013 12:17 am (UTC)
Well....not to Himchan.
jjang_intae 13th-Feb-2013 02:22 am (UTC)
So that's why he's been missing. Get well soon Chan ;A; Hope he still gets to be on stage with them, just not dancing
desdelejos 13th-Feb-2013 02:24 am (UTC)
;________________; nooooo I was so looking forward too seen him

but it's better for him to rest, poor bb
in_noctem 13th-Feb-2013 02:45 am (UTC)
Glad there's an explanation as to why he was missing from Jongup's graduation and birthday, I just assumed he was sick. I'm glad he's able to rest up but eeesh the timing could not be worse.
chostick_1988 13th-Feb-2013 03:49 am (UTC)
Poor Chan >.< hope his pinky feels better.
I really love Zelo's hair like that

hellicoptajuuce 13th-Feb-2013 07:35 am (UTC)
errr is he really in charge of vocals? i thought that was someone's duty
supplanter 13th-Feb-2013 08:47 am (UTC)
He's a sub-vocal and sub-rapper, but what else are they going to call him. >.> It's more flattering/diplomatic than just calling him the visual, which isn't a huge deal for b.a.p either....
deerlike 13th-Feb-2013 04:53 pm (UTC)
He's certainly in charge of some of the vocals. In fact, I'd wager that the lines are divided up pretty evenly in "One Shot," more than they have before.
supplanter 13th-Feb-2013 05:18 pm (UTC)
Ignoring Crash and Hajima, which weren't done with their in-house producers, One Shot is basically like Warrior and Power in vocal distribution for Himchan and Jongup. There wasn't really a difference between Warrior and Power in number of lines or counts, just Himchan wasn't being covered up by Daehyun in Power. Himchan does have a little more than Jongup this time, but he doesn't really have much more than usual, he only sings twice and I think his lines are the same both times.

If we were talking about Punch, Punch is structured more like No Mercy and I think Himchan and Jongup have the chorus, so it would have been inconvenient if they had been promoting that.

I think this mini is automatically better for Jongup and Himchan just because there isn't a real ballad. Or a DitR. >.> But to me the real difference seems to be that Daehyun and Youngjae are utilized more evenly than they have been before (at least for Coma and One Shot; I haven't listened to all of them that closely, though.)


ETA: and of course he has some vocals. It's not like he's... Sehun. orz (Though for some of the ballads it's pretty close....)

Daejae alternate lines for Zero too. :D I like the effect! BUTBUT: if I'm not wrong, Himchan gets the entire Zero bridge (apart from the 'oh eh oh eh oh' bits)? It's single-note stuff but it's like eight bars. Jongup might be somewhere in there as well but I can't really tell.
supplanter 13th-Feb-2013 07:17 pm (UTC)
Yeah, zero is the one song I dislike, so I don't think I've even listened to it twice. XD But I am v pleased with this direction. I'd been getting increasingly despondent over Youngjae's lack of lines, especially with No Mercy and Hajima. >.> (And even Daehyun, I'm worried he's going to screw up his voice. I actually worried he already had, but the upcoming promotions should be indicative either way....)
___varying 14th-Feb-2013 12:09 am (UTC)
I just watched the Gaon Awards perf and there's nothing to worry about re: Dae's voice, at least for now haha. Also, idk if you saw it but fan accounts say Jae took over for Himchan for the Inki prerecording, so technically he has even more lines in One Shot atm. (Sigh, I think I'll really miss Himchan's presence in the lives. :()
supplanter 14th-Feb-2013 02:35 am (UTC)
It's too bad, but I guess I'll look on this as a rare opportunity for alternate arrangements... I'm sure Himchan will be able to perform it at some point. Maybe he's not actually going to sit out the entire promotion, I assume they're going to continue promos after the concerts, so he could come back then.
deerlike 13th-Feb-2013 07:44 pm (UTC)
One Shot is basically like Warrior and Power in vocal distribution for Himchan and Jongup. There wasn't really a difference between Warrior and Power in number of lines or counts

Hmm, I don't really agree. "Warrior" was unevenly distributed, not only in terms of lines but in terms of vocal and rap parts. "Power", on the other hand, was actually fairly well distributed, vocally, with the main verses neatly divided up between Himchan, Jongup, Youngjae and Daehyun, and the chorus consisting of group singing and Daejae vocals. The integration of the rap parts was also well done, imo, it didn't override the vocals.

So, I agree with you on the comparison of "One Shot" to "Power" in terms of the line distribution pattern, but I don't think it's necessarily a slight. We didn't hear the likes of this distribution in the promoted songs that followed "Power", until now -- hence my comment re it sounding more evenly-distributed -- with "One Shot".

supplanter 13th-Feb-2013 09:20 pm (UTC)
Warrior and Power had the exact same breakdown. Daehyun/Youngjae/Himchan/Jongup with approximately equal parts of the verses, then group singing for the chorus (in warrior, this was "warrior hoo" while in power it was "we got the power, i got the power") with individual lines in the chorus for Daehyun and Youngjae (with a little more for daehyun than youngjae). And of course large rap verses for both BYG and Zelo, and random punctuations throughout which I don't really count.

In One Shot, it's more like... BYG rap verse, Himchan and Jongup pre-chorus (with Himchan more than Jongup), Daehyun/Youngjae pretty evenly split sung chorus, but no group, and then BYG gets a... post-chorus thing, then Zelo's rap verse, H/J pre-chorus again, D/Y chorus again, then Youngjae and Daehyun verses, then the sung chorus again, and BYG's post-chorus. Himchan and Jongup still get very few individual lines and no group singing. It's not real a step up (for them) from Warrior/Power.

(BYG does the post-chorus thing in Coma, too; his lines seem to be expanding. XD)
deerlike 14th-Feb-2013 02:06 am (UTC)
Huh, well I stand corrected re the line distribution in the two verses and chorus of "Warrior"! :) But I maintain the overall structure of the song lends to being imbalanced. Or at the very least, by comparison, "Power" is structured in a way that is more balanced. There seems to be equal parts rap, verse and chorus, from what I can tell based on the lyrics.

On the subject of "One Shot," I had a look at the lyrics and parts distribution and it seems to be evenly distributed for everyone... except Jongup. Unless these lyrics are mistaken, there seems to be: a rap intro by Yongguk; verse by Himchan; verse shared by Jongup and Zelo; chorus split evenly between Daehyun and Youngjae; then a rap chorus of sorts, featuring Yongguk, Himchan, and Zelo, ending with a refrain by Yongguk ("You only have one chance u know?"); Zelo's rap; verse by Himchan; verse shared by Jongup and Zelo; chorus bridge chorus by Daejae; and finally the same rap chorus by Yongguk, Himchan, and Zelo, with Yongguk's refrain concluding the song. I'll have to give it another few listens myself to confirm this for my own ears.

But at any rate, it seems that the song is kind to everyone but Jongup. His verse isn't wholly his, although he (and Himchan) at least sing different lines in each half of the song.
supplanter 14th-Feb-2013 02:33 am (UTC)
Well, I guess in Power Himchan and Jongup's lines feel like actual lines, rather than just "the lines that follow the main singers'", so there's that. XD

Hm... I'm not sure the "only one shot Xinfinity" is actually all three of them, I think it could just be BYG. But I'm not sure....

Yeah, Jongup only gets to sing half as much as Himchan. At least Jongup is main dancer so performance-wise he usually benefits.
lushipeo 13th-Feb-2013 09:03 am (UTC)
Wow, poor thing. That sure is some shitty timing.
I wonder what he's going to do with their solo concerts though? I don't know how long fractures or just fingers in general take to heal..
sakura_holic 13th-Feb-2013 03:12 pm (UTC)
NOOO!! I wanted to see him the most since he got some good lines! Anyways get well soon.
A surgery? How bad is it?
BTW, OP can I take you Himchan gif?
Even with that hair he looks so UNF!
purring_feline 13th-Feb-2013 04:01 pm (UTC)
We don't really know how bad it is but I'm guessing the surgery was needed because the bones in the fingers are so delicate and they wouldn't mend nicely using a cast only.
I take no credit for the gif, doll, it came from iwillkeepitlow at tumblr! :D
sakura_holic 14th-Feb-2013 05:39 pm (UTC)
Oh well hopes he gets well really soon.
Thanks for informing where it's from!
*goes hunting for more* *_*
swhyeon1991 13th-Feb-2013 06:30 pm (UTC)
;__; Aww get well soon!

my baby always gets a bum deal >:( Get well soon channie!!!
weerainbow 13th-Feb-2013 11:40 pm (UTC)
It won't be the same watching them perform without him but hopefully he'll get whatever rest he needs to recover properly so he'll be able to perform in future without any problems. I'm sure he'll be really sad he's going to miss out like this but his health should come first.
onlylexy 14th-Feb-2013 12:14 am (UTC)
Am I the only one who has been noticing how off Himchan has been recently? Even in this video..who does he keep looking at and why does it look like he's hiding behind Jungup and some points. He seems kinda scared or timid and seems fragile.
