ZELO: No More MisconceptionsThe former B.A.P member gets candid about life after being in a boyband, the release of his first solo album in May and building his own brand: "When I was part of a boy group, I always had the thought that it was not going to last forever. So I was always kind of exploring on my own in order to fulfill these musical desires that I had. This desire continued to grow, and as it grew I continued to prepare for my eventual solo debut."
Before meeting Choi Junhong–best known by the mononym Zelo–I take a moment to walk down memory lane and re-watch one of my favorite music videos by his former group B.A.P. It’s their 2012 debut track “Warrior,” and all the six members are blonde, confident and embody the term ‘swag’ quite literally. Zelo (just 15 years old at the time) comes onscreen halfway through, spitting fire at a speed that most other idol rappers in the scene couldn’t really compete with.( Collapse )
