Big Bang will be on Music Station on 17th July. Considering how long it took DBSK to appear on this programme (despite having numerous #1 in Japan), all I can say is, Congrats guys.

[Interview Excerpts] Yang HS aka YG and Sandara of 2NE1: July 16 & 20, 2009

[Yang HS aka YG, July 16, 2009, (c) Choen]

Of the five members of Big Bang, G-Dragon and TaeYang have been with Yang the longest. They both spent over six years as trainees at YGE. Yang says, "They'd gone through long and hard training and have grown into extremely capable musicians,” and “All I ever did was help them realize their full potentials.” Watching those two, I thought I wanted to create not a boy band that fits the conventional formula but one that grows and matures on its own. Well, I guess the first step was a success.”

Many people say the roots of Big Bang’s music lie in hip hop. But Yang does not necessarily think so. He says, “Big Bang is not a hip hop group. The only two members who have passion for hip hop music are G-Dragon and TOP." TaeYang is deeply interested in R&B, DaeSung in ballads and trot music, and SeungRi in traditional pop, says Yang.

[Sandara aka Dara of 2NE1, July 20, 2009, (c) Choen]
...
Sandara is older than any of the members of Big Bang, which is under the same label as 2NE1 but came out before them. She is closest to G-Dragon and TaeYang. She says, "We used to hang out together when we were trainees," and “They are younger than I am but they feel like older brothers and I feel like I can depend on them.” But she still feels awkward around the oldest member TOP. “Both of us are quiet and shy and when we're alone, it gets a bit awkward sometimes,” she says with a smile.

Teddy, “I have planned to go watch Michael Jackson’s concert with TaeYang”



YG music producer, 1TYM Teddy has once given high anticipation for Big Bang member TaeYang.

Teddy was the composer to TaeYang’s solo album title song ‘Look Only At Me’ released last May. And now he is currently working on TaeYang’s 2nd solo album. It is planned for TaeYang’s new solo album to be out in October.

Teddy said on 27th July in an interview, “TaeYang has been a trainee under YG Ent since elementary school, he is a dongsaeng I’ve seen from young. Even though he is younger than me by 10 years, he has seen more about music etc than I have.”

He added, “TaeYang is very thorough with self-management – he hasn’t changed much from when he was a trainee and now as a singer. With management and hardwork, he is now very capable in dancing and singing.”

TaeYang’s new solo album is completed with about 8 songs currently. But we have not decided to release it as a minialbum or full-length album.”

Teddy also revealed that they have made a promise to go London middle of this month to see Michael Jackson’s performance together.

Teddy said, “Me and TaeYang, above everything, are fans of Michael Jackson. I promised to bring him watch his concert to study more about music etc. But it was heartbreaking that Michael Jackson just pass away suddenly. Back then when the news of his death came out, TaeYang was in Japan for Big Bang’s promotions and he was very sad.”

Go Crazy For K-Pop!, Big Bang, 2NE1, Wonder Girls

Source: Philippine Daily Inquirer + Minsarang WP
Credit: -YJiVIP- @ bigbangvip.net


MANILA, Philippines – The world has gone crazy over Korean pop. Very popular right now are boy bands and girl groups with members who harmonize beautifully and showcase well-choreographed dance steps. Good-looking, stylish, entertaining and hotter than kimchi, these are some of Korea’s most in-demand groups.


Wonder Girls

Breaking into the music scene in early 2007, the group—composed of Sohee, Mimi, Sun, Yenny and Hyuna—was introduced in an MTV show and became popular thanks to massive hits such as “Tell Me,” “So Hot” and “Nobody.”

Hyuna eventually had to be pulled out by her parents ostensibly for health reasons (she is now with another girl group called 4minute), but she was replaced by Yubin, who has a solo rap part in the new version of “Tell Me.”

The video for the song features a fun and easy-to-imitate choreography, which has resulted in a dance craze with fans from all over the world posting videos of themselves imitating the same moves.

The girls have performed in places like Bangkok and China and have invaded the US as well with an English version of “Nobody” and a front-act appearance for the Jonas Brothers. An English album is said to be in the works.



Big Bang

This all-male musical group consists of five talented singers/dancers—G-Dragon, Tae Yang, T.O.P., Daesung and Seung Ri — who, even before coming together as a group, were successful solo artists. G-Dragon and Tae Yang started their careers when they were 12 years old, while T.O.P. was an underground rapper.

Apart from releasing award-winning albums and mini-albums of hip-hop songs, the Big Bang boys are also famous for their freestyle and street dancing. They are trendsetters, too, with their slanted caps, cornrows, triangular scarves, shutter shades and faux-hawks.

Famous for hits like “Haru Haru,” “La-la-la,” and “Number 1,” the boys command legions of fans in places like Japan, where they have released Japanese versions of their songs.



2NE1

Tagged as the female version of Big Bang, 2NE1 counts CL, Bom, Minzy and Dara (more popularly known as Sandara Park to Pinoys) as its members. While they can all sing and dance (their choreography is very impressive), each girl is unique when it comes to voice quality, image and fashion style. Still, they complement one another and look fab as a group.

Their first single, “Lollipop,” was an advertisement song with Big Bang that was used to promote a phone. Their actual debut single as a group, however, is the very energetic and catchy song “Fire.” The song has two music videos, one of which was featured on Perez Hilton’s blog.

It has also been reported that Interscope Records is interested in an American album for the girls. Not bad for a group that appeared on the scene only a couple of months ago.

2NE1 is scheduled to release a mini-album next week, one that contains the reggae-tinged pop/R&B song called “I Don’t Care.” We can’t wait to hear if the rest of their stuff is as good as “Fire.”

Yang HyunSeok talks about GDragon’s first solo album

Yang HyunSeok has raised expectations and anticipation for Big Bang GDragon’s first solo album.

He was on 2NE1TV recently and gave an introduction about GDragon’s solo album to be released on 18th August.

He said, “Kwon JiYoung is really a big hit. All these time he has been producing with me for Big Bang’s album, but for this album he did producing works alone.”

Singer 60row criticises, “Big Bang GDragon? He’s like a gay rapper”

Rapper 60row has criticised Big Bang GDragon and SG Wannabe.

All this while known for his malicious tongue towards other celebrities in the zone and getting noise marketing out of it, singer 60row is back with a new album ‘Loving WonderLand’ after 1.5 years. And this time he critcises Big Bang GDragon and SG Wannabe.

60row begins with, “People who feels awkward and curious listening to my songs, don’t listen to it. And for people who are prepared to listen and have listened to it, listen to the other songs too. Then I’ll earn some money.”

He continued, “For people who are angry after listening to ‘Stop ya music’ and knowing my crticisms and labels for others, are you still curious? Big Bang? From ‘Lies’ and like ‘Lies’, they have been alright right now. GDragon who has the very gay rap tone. If the kid appears on the TV, I immediately switch channels. SG Wannabe? These people after 2 years their music are still very like trash.”

But on the other hand, 60row, “Yoon JongShin hyung’s lyric’s sentiments. Toy HeeYeol hyung’s wiseness and calmness. The swag that joins the DOC hyungs’ generation. Ra.d’s swag that goes ahead time. And even the Broccoli Nomajo’s 2oth century’s feel” He talks about the artistes he looks up to.

Lastly he said, “Qualifications? I don’t know anything about it. I say what my heart likes. Ivy said ‘himnae’ but was scolded, saying it is dirty when it is dirty, being scolded, always looking at others, and saying my piece. But whether it is good or not, it is the personality to blame, and if you don’t like it, don’t take interests in me.”

Meanwhile, rapper 60row will have his album showcase on 15th August in CoEX.

*do not add to or remove credit lines*

Big Bang’s Daesung got into accident and sent to hospital on 11th. According to diagnostic result, Daesung fractured his nose and got small bruises on his face and arms as well. Thus, doctors required him for over 4 weeks of treatments.

YG Entertainment later said, “We first thought it was a car accident, but found out that the car that Daesung was in hit the guard rail itself,” on the same day of an accident to Money Today Star News.

According to YG, the car was driving around Pyung-Taek City, Kyoung-Gi Province, under rainy conditions and hit the guard rail around 4pm after having finished shooting SBS ‘Family Outing.’

Also, according to company, Daesung was sent to the closest emergency room right after accident. After an hour of close examination, he suffered a fractured pleurapophysis and nose. YG said, “Hospital said pleurapophysis will heal naturally if he rests for about four weeks. We are planning to send him to a hospital in Seoul and get treatments.”

Also, manager who drove the car got leg injuries.

YG said that the stylist who was sitting in the back seat got severe injuries and bled a lot, so they are worrying about her health a lot at this moment. The stylist was sent to the nearest hospital, but hospital recommended to send her to a bigger hospital in Seoul, and is currently waiting for surgery.

There’s a big possibility that Daesung will not be attending his new musical ‘Shouting’ press conference on the 12th because of this accident. YG said, “‘Shouting’ press conference will go on as planned, but we don’t think Daesung will be able to attend. We will focus on his rest and put him back on good condition.”

YG also added, “We are sorry to many fans who are worried throughout this incident.”
