We report on the properties of K-selected galaxies, identified from a total area of $\sim 920$ arcmin$^2$ to $K_{\rm Vega}=19$, of which $320$ arcmin$^2$ are complete to $K_{\rm Vega}=20$. The {\it BzK} selection technique was used to assemble complete samples of about 500 candidate massive star-forming galaxies (sBzKs) and about 160 candidate massive passively evolving galaxies (pBzKs) at $1.41.4$, which has been quenched by the present day.
