In response, BEAST responded with, “At the moment, I believe we are ranked a little ahead of MBLAQ.” Doojoon then continued with, “When we had just debuted, MBLAQ pushed ahead of us a lot. We felt foolish in comparison, and we even contemplated doing something else for a living.” Doojoon also added, “We were even envious of the light that Rain shined down on MBLAQ.”

The BEAST members also stated, “Even though were are on top of MBLAQ in terms of popularity at the moment, we are always in competition with each other.”

MBLAQ is currently promoting “Mona Lisa” on music shows. BEAST is in Japan promoting “Bad Girl” and will perform at the United Cube Concerts starting in Korea on August 14th.

The representatives commented, “It was the original plan to not have BEAST complete any follow up promotions for their first full length album. The promotions of “Fiction” were only for one month.”

They continued with, “The members of BEAST are very thankful for the fans that gave them so much support.”

BEAST will be releasing the Japanese version of “Bad Girl”[/url on the 15th of June. The music video for “Bad Girl” in Japanese has already been released. BEAST will be flying to Japan to begin their promotions there on the 20th of June.

Earlier this year, BEAST released the Japanese version of their hit song, “Shock,” and it took over the Oricon Weekly Singles Chart. However, due to the earthquake aftermath, BEAST did not promote “Shock” in Japan. This time, BEAST will actively promote “Bad Girl” in Japan this month.

BEAST concluded with, “In order to show our fans in Korea our thankfulness and return the love, we will work hard promoting in Japan.”
