B1A4 (Korean: 비원에이포) is a South Korean quintet boy band. Formed by WM Entertainment in 2011, they made their debut with their release Let’s Fly. The band consists of Jinyoung, Baro, Sandeul, CNU and Gongchan. The group was first introduced through an online comic series, or “webtoon“.[1]



[edit] Etymology

Their group name, B1A4, has been explained as being due to one member having B blood type, and the other four having A blood type. It also stands for “Be The One, All For One”.[2][3] B1A4 have been dubbed “countryside-dols” by Korean media, because all the members originate from the Korean countryside.[4] Jinyoung is from Chungju, Chungcheongbuk-do and CNU is from Cheongju, Chungcheongbuk-do; Sandeul is from Busan, Baro is from Kwangju, Jeollanam-do; Gongchan is from Suncheon, Jeollanam-do.[4]
