The group made their debut in 2006 and have found worldwide success with several hits such as "Haru Haru," "Tonight," "Bad Boy," and "Fantastic Baby." Each member has also had their own successful solo careers, which have mostly included music, but also various ventures into acting.
The group's most recent album, MADE, which is inspiration for this tour, has been a slow release. Each month until September, the group is releasing one or two tracks, at which point the fans will finally have to whole album. May brought us the songs "Loser" and "Bae Bae," which have garnered plenty of attention on music programs in Korea, as well as on YouTube, with "Loser" gaining over 24.2 million views in less than a month.
