The B Team: Laboum

The B Team is a series that focuses on the "lesser" known Kpop groups who aren't particularly popular. This time, the spotlight is on girl group Laboum, and I aim to introduce each member and share their various videos.
/This post is fairly image and gif heavy/

This six member girl group debuted with their "Pit a Pat" music video mid last year, Aug. 27, 2014. Laboum is a projects group under NH Media and Nega Network (NH has U-kiss as a notable group, and Nega has Brown Eyed Girls). Their companies state that "laboum" means "party" in French, so they choose to follow a cute/girly concept for their releases.

These girls have consistently put out solid music and have just the right amount of cutesy in their concepts. While quality fancams are a pain to track down, Laboum is good enough to join the 2015 trend of nugu groups becoming decently popular through cute/innocent concept (like CLC, Playback, Oh My Girl) with the right management team behind them. Sadly, that's unlikely, so they will just stay around as filler in music shows for at least a year before they'll likely fade away. But we can always pray can't we? It'd be a shame to let ZN, HaeIn and Solbin fade out into nothing ...

  1. I'm calling it now: this is one of those groups that'll split up with the members going elsewhere to other groups - or just getting non-kpop lives.

  2. Hopefully they can grab themselves some chaebol types before they leave the industry.

  5. Funny how they are actually quite popular now and no one expected it a year ago. They are everywhere, in variety shows, in between the big groups. Laboum is getting there
