There have been many nicknames idols and idol groups have collected over the years, like "beagle-dol" (an idol who is loud, energetic, and cheerful). BTOB is considered one such group, but a nickname closer to their hearts (and the hearts of their fans, MELODY) is "healing-dol," aka "healing idols." Given this name thanks to their touching and inspirational ballads, the group is back with new music to give the (K-pop) world some much-needed positivity.
At 6PM KST on Monday, February 21, BTOB made their much-awaited 10th anniversary comeback with the release of their third studio album Be Together. The veteran idols also dropped the music video for title track "The Song," where the members—Eunkwang, Minhyuk, Changsub, Hyunsik, Peniel, and Sungjae—were seen reuniting after a long time spent apart.
Be Together has a tracklist of 13 songs. While two songs have Korean-only titles, the rest are in English or have official English translations:
- "The Song" (title track)
- "Be Together"
- "My Way"
- "Interlude: Re"
- "Dance With Me"
- "Thank You"
- "Outro: Encore"
The members worked incredibly hard on this self-produced album: Eight songs were composed and arranged by Hyunsik, while 11 songs were penned by Minhyuk and Peniel; Minhyuk also helped compose five songs on the album. Apart from celebrating their tenth anniversary as a group, this album also serves as the first official comeback of Sungjae and Hyunsik after the two were discharged from the military last November 2021.
So how did Melody (BTOB's official fandom) react to the new music? With *a lot* of feels.
"I'm crying this scene is so beautiful"
"When you say healing, it means BTOB, and BTOB means healing- I'd like it to become like that."
"btob ballads always hit hard"
"I'm crying over blue confetti"
The songs almost immediately started charting!
Even their hoobaes (industry juniors) are showing love and support for the comeback.
"BTOB is indeed the genre"
