The two became famous after competing in the 2007 My Hero (simplified Chinese: 07加油!好男儿; traditional Chinese: 07加油!好男兒) competition, with Jing Boran winning first and Fu Xinbo third. In 2008, the two released their own EP, Glory (simplified Chinese: 光荣; traditional Chinese: 光榮), and then the album, The Big World (Chinese: 世界之大; ). Since their debut, they have won multiple new artists awards.

In 2008, they performed during the pre-ceremony performance of the 2008 Summer Paralympics opening ceremony.[1] The two also began their acting career in 2008, with Fu Xinbo playing in I am Veeker (simplified Chinese: 微客帝国; traditional Chinese: 微客帝國) [2] and Jing Boran in A Tribute to Stephen Chow (simplified Chinese: 向周星驰致敬先; traditional Chinese: 向周星馳致敬先).[3]

Origin of the name

Both members of the group have a "bo" sound in their names. When combined, Jing Boran's Bo (Chinese: ) and Fu Xinbo's Bo (Chinese: ), form the name BOBO.

Fanclubs

Jing Boran's fanclub is known as BBF, standing for BaBy Face because during the My Hero competition, one judge called Jing Boran Baby Face. Fu Xinbo's fanclub is known as BBT, standing for Bong Bang Tang, another term for lollipop. He was also nicknamed “Little Meat Bun" for his puffy cheeks. Fans of BoBo as a whole are called BBS, or BOBO'S fans.
