Korean boy band BTOB made their comeback in seven months by releasing their second full-length album.
The idol group, composed of Eunkwang, Sungjae, Changsub, Minhyuk, Hyunsik, Peniel and Ilhoon, returned with the album "Brother Act," that contains 12 songs, including the title track "Missing You," "My Lady," "Guitar (Stroke of Love)" and "Fly Away."
Minhyuk said that now they are not focused on topping the charts but they are just happy that they released the album. "As we've gone through four years as obscure artists, we're not going to be obsessed with chart races. We're just thankful for having the opportunity to present our music," he said. "Brother Act" is BTOB's second studio album after releasing "Complete" in June 2015. The lead single "Missing You" was written by Hyunsik.
After the album's release, "Missing You" topped Korean music charts Melon, Genie, Olleh and Bugs.
BTOB debuted in March 2012 and have become known for singing ballads. They said that they are happy to see fellow boy bands BTS and Wanna One become successful in other countries.
"We're also amazed when watching fellow artists such as Wanna One or BTS mesmerize the world. We believe we will also have the opportunity to show a fresh image that we weren't able to share in the past," said Minhyuk.
BTOB released their album on October 16, the same day fellow boy band and former Cube Entertainment label mate Highlight also released their new music. "We're honored since we had much respect for them since our trainee days. It is only a joyful thing for various artists to present a wide range of music," added Minhyuk.
Sungjae, who appeared in the hit drama "Goblin," commented that they want to last long in the business, saying, "We never imagine the end."
