do you know the meaning of sandeul's stage name? it's been bugging me forever because "deul" means multiple (like saying "hyungdeul" references multiple hyungs etc.) and "san" means mountain i think so does it mean "multiple mountains"?? on that note, what does "baro" and "cnu" mean GOD IN HEAVEN why do these b1a4 boys have such complicated stage names?? i thought "cnu" meant "seeing you" (by pronouncing each letter) for MONTHS when i was a baby bana. help me shinwhoo-kenobi, you're my only hope

ooooh yes yes they couldn’t just have simple stage names, right? (Or no stage names? Like what’s wrong with using your own name everyone in a while? I mean I guess if some idol who’s already super famous shares your name that I can understand wanting to pick a different–ANYWAYS)

I actually already got an ask about Sandeul’s name which I mediocrely answered here ~

I feel like with Sandeul we kinda got more background on why he wanted to make a stage name? Like he really wanted to shed his past non-idol image and stuffs but as far as the others…

Actually, the idea that CNU meant ‘seeing you’ was something that I remember being bounced around a long time ago! I don’t think he ever confirmed that though. Interestingly, but not at all surprisingly, the ‘shin’ of his name does mean ‘God’ or some sort of ‘deity’ which I mean CNU is pretty close to that level so it totally works. But also I remember he said that he came about picking CNU (shinwoo) after talking with the members and wanted the meaning of a ‘sweet and dependable mom friend.’

Baro can mean a lot of different things, all of which I think Baro picked because he though it summed up his personality (and being a ‘B’-type.. cause blood types, amirite?). But it means a combo of: quick, immediate, being very ‘present’ in this current space/place etc.

And not that you asked about Gongchan but ‘Gong’ being his family name, it’s actually a very uncommon family name in Korea so he kinda swapped it to be the first syllable of his stage name. 

Imagine debuting with your company’s debt hanging over your shoulders. Hearing from multiple critics that you’ll be overshadowed in less than a year by your competitors. Being unsure of your future and whether this will all be worth it in the end. Your work hard; attending multiple concerts and fansigns and variety shows. You work on and improve your music, your acting, your dancing, your variety skills, your stage presence, your singing. And you get to the point where the debt is not only paid off, but your company is able to recruit trainees and get a new building. And now, your hard work is about to aid yet another(!) act in following their dreams.

I’m honestly so proud of B1A4 and all they’ve accomplished.

What’s with these rappers where their voices don’t fit their personalities? Like voice so low it causes earthquakes. Face so bright it replaces the sun. They’re like cupcake warriors. Much low but so squish.
