With an average age of 20, the members of B1A4 could not stop talking at their press conference. Occasionally member Sandeul would laugh out loud, mutter to himself and even make weird faces. They say youth is money, and it’s true. The members spoke like firecrackers, going on and on one after another. When Baro snatched the microphone over to talk, he even got a shock because the volume was too loud. Gongchan got a shock by the huge turnout at the press conference during their entrance. And the eldest CNU was the first to come in, and his shy appearance was really cute.

At the press conference, they tried to guess the sports king, fashion king, cooking king, best face, best ‘oppa’ best son-in-law, best boyfriend and best daddy in the hearts of the Taiwanese fans. Warner Music did a poll amongst the fans and Baro was sports king, Gongchan with the most perfect face, best son-in-law CNU, fashion king Baro. And it was a triple crown for best daddy, best boyfriend and cooking king, Jinyoung. The members managed to pick out the answers of the fans quite accurately! But the fan-chosen best ‘oppa’ Sandeul was actually the member who received 0 votes from his fellow members. CNU laughed and said, “Maybe he is very easy-going, but being the best ‘oppa’ is…”

Leader Jinyoung revealed that when he saw best face Gongchan after his shower with his wet hair pushed back the night before, he thought for a second, “Wow, he’s so handsome”, causing the members to imitate throwing up motions. Baro said in fake seriousness, saying that all of them were lacking a little (in visuals) and only when they’re together then they’re perfect. But he went on to praise himself, “But if it’s only me, it’s almost full marks already.”

Baro was officially recognized by the fans and members as the sports king but CNU was not willing to back down and said that it should be him. He proclaimed himself to be the sports king in the eyes of the Taiwanese fans and tried to appeal, saying that “I’m really good at taekwondo!” When he was asked to show off a few moves, he said that his pants were too tight so instead he showed the hand position and got mocked by the members who said that it was too weak. When he returned to his seat he nearly tripped. The members laughed and said that “Your reflexes aren’t even good, how could you be good at sports?”

So what food is B1A4, who has been living together since debut, good at cooking? CNU revealed that since predebut he’s always liked to cook fried rice for the members to eat. Leader Jinyoung’s “accidental spicy pork stew” on the other hand is said to make people drool at the thought of it. But he laughed awkwardly and said, “That was an accidental good taste. I couldn’t replicate it after that.”

Warner Music brought out ‘scratch-and-win’ tickets for the boys to try and they went quiet with their heads bowed while stratching. The official lucky member Gongchan did not even win a cent, while leader Jinyoung was really lucky and scratched out 500TWD (~$17), and asked if it was that easy to win. He said happily, “I will treat everyone to ice-cream.” He recalled that he had ever won a pair of exercise shoes with a coin. Member Sandeul didn’t win anything so he asked, “Can you give me this (the coin used to scratch)?” and promptly slipped it into his pocket. Baro won 100TWD (~$9).

Their schedule in Taiwan this time clashed strongly with senior Hyunbin, taking the same flight, having press conferences and fanmeetings on the same day. Baro said regretfully, “I don’t think he saw us at the airport today but we saw him…” Jinyoung said that he is really handsome and revealed that even the air stewardesses couldn’t resist glancing over at him. The MC cleared up that Hyunbin actually took first class while B1A4 was in business class so they had no chance of interactions.
