Black Beat (블랙 비트) is South Korean boy band. Black Beat belongs to SM Entertainment. A few of their members have appeared elsewhere. But for the most part their public appearances (and subsequent popularity) have been limited. This can be attributed to a number of things: the waning popularity of poppy rap and the decreasing amount of SM Entertainment's PR power (which since 2004 has focused on a few core groups and singers). However, they have appeared on the last SMTown album, 2006 Winter SMTown, showing that they are still active. Currently they train young trainees under SM Entertainment. Rumors of a second album in 2007 have been in circulation but no statements released from SM Entertainment justify said rumors.
