"Big Bang Stand Up album officially launched",
Thursday August 7, 2008 Korea




VIP's the day has finally arrived. Despite delays, you've waited patiently for this day.

It's 08-08-08 in Korea and Big Bang's 3rd mini album 'Stand Up' officially launched in Korea. The highly anticipated album had pre orders of 100,000 copies. This number was helped by the fact that there was no leakage of the album in advance. Unlike many other KPOP artists who had their whole albums being shared on various sites and uploaded to youtube weeks before the album was released.

Big Bang is scheduled to perform 2 songs from the ‘Stand Up’ album, "Haru Haru" and "Oh My friend" on SBS Inki Gayo (3:15 Korean Time). The MV for either "Haru Haru" or "Oh My friend" should be released shortly as well, maybe as soon as tonight. Supposedly, G-Dragon is sporting a new hairstyle that is "shocking."

Can Big Bang Stand Up to the VIP's expecations? VIP's will soon find out.

"YGeshop out of stock on Big Bang 3rd mini album",
Thursday August 7, 2008 Korea




After Big Bang's comeback album reached 10,000 pre-orders, YG has finally announced they are ot of stocks.

The album was released earlier today and Vipz have already rushed to the YG shop to purchase the copies still in stock.

However, YG did not expect such an overwhelming response and therefore did not make as many copies as VIPz has hoped.

The album will now move to online shops, which means fans will have to pre-order online and have the album shipped later instead of buying and listening in the same day.

Online stores will begin selling "Stand Up" starting at 11 am Korean times.

"Sample Big Bang's entire 3rd album!",
Friday August 8, 2008 Korea




Jaeurazn on Youtube made an awesome preview clip of Big Bang's 3rd album Stand Up, collecting 1:30 snippets of all the songs.

Tracklist :
01 . Intro (Stand Up)
02 . 하루 하루 (Everyday Everyday)
03 . 천국 (Heaven)
04 . 착한 사람 (Nice Person)
05 . Lady
06 . Oh My Friend

I'm surprised at the variety of songs that compose this album. "Everyday Everyday" is a house song that fuses well with Big Bang's heart-felt R&B vocals. "Lady" is an 80's upbeat song that's nice to sing along to. But the most surprising track is "Oh My Friend", which is a rock song that perhaps makes its tributes to YG Entertainment's rock roots from CEO Yang Hyun Suk, who was part of Seo Tai Ji and Boys. Despite the departure from Hip-Pop and R&B, Big Bang proves that they can trenscend genre barriers to deliver good, refreshing music.

"Park Min-yeong in Big Bang music video",
Friday August 8, 2008 Korea




After almost a year off the radar, Park Min Young made her grand comeback this week with dual identities on tv and music video. After first appearing as the “Nine-Tailed Fox” on KBS2TV drama “Hometown Legends” on Wednesday, Park Min Young has now become the woman caught in between Big Bang’s T.O.P and G-Dragon in their latest hotly anticipated Haru Haru MV released today.

For their “Haru Haru” MV in Big Bang’s 3rd Mini-Album Stand Up which was officially released today, Park Min Young and G-Dragon acted as a couple. In the MV, Park Min Young is a girl who has terminal illness and decides to say her most painful lie ever in her life in order not to burden G-Dragon.

This was Park Min Young’s second collaboaration with Big Bang having acted opposite T.O.P in KBS2TV drama “I Am Sam” last year. In this MV, T.O.P becomes Park Min Young’s helper and acts as a “bad guy”. The most exciting part of the MV was where G-Dragon gets into a fight with T.O.P. For this scene, G-Dragon got injured but insisted on finishing the MV filming despite the injury.

G-Dragon and T.O.P expressed, “We have never come to blows as brothers. But in order to portray realism in the MV, we really had to do a real fight.” Big Bang’s 3rd mini album was released in conjunction with their MV today and they will make their comeback on tv via SBS Inkigayo this Sunday.

"10,000 Thai Fans Flock to Watch Big Bang Live",
Friday August 8, 2008 Korea




Group Big Bang successfully wrapped up a recent concert in Thailand, followed by equally-successful concerts in Korea and Japan.

Big Bang’s management agency YG Entertainment said Big Bang held a concert entitled ‘Global Warning Tour’ at the Huamark Indoor Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand on August 7. The agency said although it was the group’s first-ever concert in Thailand, some 10,000 local fans gathered to watch their favorite Korean group perform. According to YG Entertainment, the entire audience gave them a standing ovation from the start of the show. The agency also said some 20 fans fainted during the concert and received first aid treatment from paramedics.
Big Bang’s popularity in Thailand rivals that of Korea’s. Since the group released its first studio album in Thailand in September last year, a total of four songs, including ‘Dirty Cash’, ‘Lies’, ‘Always’ and ‘Last Goodbye’ nabbed number one spots on Thailand’s MTV International Music Chart.

After the concert, the members thanked the audience in Thai saying it was an exhilarating concert and that they hoped to one day release a Thai version of their album. A number of music industry personnel, including the president of Sony Music Thailand, attended the concert. Diehard from neighboring countries, including Singapore, Hong Kong and Vietnam also traveled to Bangkok to attend the concert.

"Battle of the Idol Groups in Latter Half of 2008",
Saturday August 9, 2008 Korea




If the earlier half of 2008 in the music industry was dominated by Kim Dong Ryul, Brown Eyes, Seotaiji, Lee Hyori, Uhm Jung Hwa, Seo In Young, etc, the latter half of 2008 would belong to idol groups. DBSK, SS501, So Nyeo Shi Dae, Big Bang, Shinee, Wonder Girls, etc are all making their comebacks in the coming months. Especially when October arrives, all the idol groups would be starting their promotions at the same time which should lead to an exciting battle.

Wonder Girls will be returning with their 2nd studio album in September and have completed the recordings under the tutelage of their mentor Park Jin Young who made a secret return to Korea not long ago. They are now training hard for their new album image concept. So Nyeo Shi Dae are also preparing for their comeback with their second album in October. Each member have been embarking on solo projects since they stopped their group activities in January.

DBSK and SS501 who have been busy in Japan will also release their new albums in the coming months. Since their “O! Jung Ban Hub” album in 2006, it has been almost two years since DBSK has had any album promotional activities in Korea. They will soon meet their fans at “SMTown Live 08″ concert on 15th August. SS501 has not forgotten about their Korean fans while making inroads overseas having released “Deja Vu” single and special album “Find” in the earlier half of 2008. They will release their studio album in October and begin their promotions officially. Big Bang has already make their comeback yesterday with their “Stand Up” mini album and it looks to be a hit already with fans. Meanwhile, Shinee, JYP’s 2AM/2PM and Kara will also make their respective comebacks in the coming months with new works.

Big Bang " Music got ‘deeper’ and genre became ‘wider’ ",
Saturday August 9, 2008 Korea




The 5-person group Big Bang’s value soar with each new album release.

Last second-half of the year, they kept the top of the K-Charts for several months with hits like “Lies” and “Last Farewell.”

Unlike idol-groups that lend their voice to other people’s songs (ref. to the composers that “sell” their songs to have other people sing), Big Bang has the ability to compose and produce, creating a wide fan-base. Tae Yang in his solo-album, Top in drama, Seungri in musical, and Dae Sung in show programs demonstrate their talent, creating bigger individual worth within the group.

Reunited Big Bang released their 3rd mini-album “Stand Up” on the 8th.

This album, within the boundary of rap music, experiments with Bossa nova, Rock, and other variety of genres, making it even more rich (ref. to the article title, how their music got “deeper”). It seems YG, the foremost brand for Black music in Korea, experimented with different genres through Big Bang.

According to the members on the night of the 7th at a pension at Ga- Pyeong, “Till now, we worked with Perry, Teddy, and other YG Family members before, but we worked with Japanese DJ and composer Daishi Dance, an outside artist for the first time, and No Brain participated in featuring, creating a more mature and deep music”

Working together with Daishi Dance was a surprise. For one time, “Lies” was accused of sounding similar to Daishi Dance’s “Moon Garden” and “P.I.A.N.O.” by the netizens.

According to G-Dragon, producer and composer of “Lies,” “Since people listen differently, they can think that,” but “we have nothing to hide so we aren’t too worried about it”

But “If there’s room for debate, we will feel more at ease if we put an end to it. That’s why we asked (translator’s note: the word used comes closer to “begging.” Apparently, Big Bang REALLY wanted to work with Daishi Dance and kept asking YG to put them in contact) our company that we wanted to work together with Daishi Dance. After asking them, they easily accepted our request. Working with Daishi Dance was expanding my limits,” said G-dragon, showing his satisfaction.

In the title song “Haru Haru,” co-composed by G-dragon and Daishi Dance, G-Dragon added his addictive melody over Daishi Dance’s stylish accompaniment. “It’s Shibuya-kei music like “Lies,” but I hope you get the feeling that it’s more emotional,” said G-Dragon.

“Chakhan Saram,” co-composed by Top and Kush, is Bossa nova-like, and “All My Friend,” co-composed by G-Dragon and No Brain, is a cool rock sound that seems appropriate for an Olympic cheer song.

“In “All My Friend,” we needed a strong voice. We asked Arrangement and Featuring to No Brain who worked with us well in concerts. It was an enriching and fun experience,” said G-Dragon.

According to G-Dragon who’ve worked as the album’s producer, there were often hard moments. After each member finished their individual activities, he recorded them in order and he himself stayed up many nights, sleepily working, creating the need for re-do.

[skip: basically, each recaps member's individual activities and their thoughts on it. they're all really happy about it =) ]

“Now, each and every one of our 5 members are noticeable and shining. We now have the power to appeal more when we’re together. Big Bang’s music too seems even more defined by Tae Yang’s music” (G-Dragon)

With Seo Taiji, Kim Gun Mo, Lee Hyori, and other big names in the music industry coming back, isn’t there a burden releasing an album at the same time?

“It’s burdening, but I think it’s a good opportunity. Since there’re alot of big seniors, there’s alot to look at Korean music scenes right now. Being newcommers (translator’s note: I know Big Bang’s not “new” since it’s been 2 years since their debut, but they’re saying they are in front of their big name seniors like Seo Taiji who’s been in the industry for over a decade or so), our first priority is not to fall behind in our competition with our seniors.” (Members)

According to G-Dragon regarding Seo Taiji, “Since I was little, I admired Seo Taiji sunbae-nim and was influenced by his music. Even the new music this time experimented with the Drum and Bass genre, and I was awed this time too.”

“People who listened to music via internet lined up at music stores to buy his CD and looked up music programs. It feels like the music markets getting bigger again.”

“I’ve recently watched a movie on the Rolling Stones and was inspired by how they played happily and passionately on stage even when they were over 60. The age difference is past (translator’s note: the word used is 띠동갑 which originates from the Chinese zodiac. Your “animal” comes back every 12 years. They’re basically saying how the Rolling Stones are older than their animal -senior: they’re older than them past 12 years.) 띠동갑, but their passion is something to follow up on from our great sunbaes. Sometimes, I think to myself, ‘What will we be doing in our 50s and 60s” and all our members go, “We’ll be on stage.” Of course, we probably won’t be dancing as much… haha” (G-Dragon)

The members will be have their come-back in SBS “Inki Gayo” on the 10th and will be returning to Japan afterwards. On the 11th, they have planned a fan meeting and starting from October, accompanied by a new album

"Big Bang 100% Confidence Comeback Stage On Inkigayo",
Sunday August 10, 2008 Korea



Popular group Big Bang made their comeback on 10th August via SBS Inkigayo this afternoon with a new stronger/tougher image than before.

For their comeback stage which was broadcasted on SBS Inkigayo at 3.40pm this afternoon, they performed a medley of three songs from their 3rd mini album “Stand Up”, “Stand Up”, “Haru Haru (Day by Day)” and “Oh My Friend” and got a tremendous reception from the watching VIPs.

Through their hairstyles and outfits, they also seek to project a strong/tough masculine image to their fans. It was most exemplified by G-Dragon who shaved half of his head as all members displayed and highlighted their charisma on stage and not their smiles. In the interview after their stage, G-Dragon said, “The concept this time is to project a masculine image.”

Even their confidence is out of this world. You can see it from their “Stand Up” song lyrics which draws a line between them and others with lines like ‘High quality and color like the high sun’, ‘As you know this generation’s TOP’, ‘Addicts appear on this dangerous track’ which introducing Big Bang and their music.

The other track “Oh My Friend” which was co-produced with No Brain was a rock tune which showed off another side of Big Bang’s music style. In other news, Hyori picked up her 3rd consecutive Mutizen song award for “U-Go-Girl” which also ends her participation in Take 7 (restricted to three wins), paving the way for Big Bang to lay their claims starting from next week.
