>>[1-14-09]SeungRi’s ‘deep kiss MV’ to be revealed during Big Bang ‘Big Show’ concert<<

YG Entertainment will reveal the no-cut version to Big Bang SeungRi’s ‘Strong Baby’ MV during Big Bang’s concert in January, including the edited intimate kissing scene in the MV.

SeungRi revealed on the 14th, “I will be having a sexy solo stage during Big Bang ‘Big Show 2009′ concert. We will also be revealing the no-cut version of my MV ‘Strong Baby’.”

SeungRi started his solo activity this year with the song ‘Strong Baby’ from Big Bang’s 2nd album. And the news of a intimate kissing scene which was edited off the MV had caused quite a topic awhile ago. And now they will be revealing the original version of the MV during the concert, causing yet again rousing interests from fans.

The kissing scene in the MV had showed a more man and matured side of SeungRi but after some reviews and consideration by the production team and YG Entertainment, the scene was edited off.

SeungRi, “It is quite a strange feeling to be hearing more of people saying that I am getting sexy when I get used to hearing that I was cute back then. During this concert, I will be performing with the dance team on a sexy performance that will showcase my charms.”

Big Bang ‘Big Show 2009′ concert opens on 30th January and will end on 1st February. Tickets to the concert are all soldout.

>>[1-16-09]SeungRi, “I want to be close with Xiah JunSu”<<

Big Bang SeungRi has once again shown how much he looked upon Dong Bang Shin Ki Xiah Junsu as an idol.

SeungRi was on MBC FM ‘Shin Dong and Kim Shin Yeong’s ShimShimTaPa’ on 15th January where he revealed,


“I want to be close with Dong Bang Shin Ki Xiah JunSu.”


SeungRi was known to be a member of Xiah Junsu’s fanclub before he debuted and has always been a Xiah fan.

Audio clip to SeungRi on the show


Here’s the translation of the interview on ShimShimTaPa.


Shindong: Why do you like Xiah Junsu so much?! Why do you want to get to know him so much?!

Seungri: I got to like Xiah Junsu hyung because …. DBSK are a very idol group that everyone adores. I saw Xiah Junsu hyung singing live. He puts his soul into it. And it looked so good that he sang with so much passion and love. As a viwer you could see all that. As a person who was growing dreams to become a singer, I felt attracted to him as a dongsaeng. I tried talking to him a couple of times but it was .. really … awkward.

Shindong: Let’s do a audio message.

Seungri: Big Bang and DBSK. They seem like a group that might get along but not really- they’re like oil and water. But one day I saw DBSK’s live and I saw one of the lead singers- Xiah Junsu hyung, singing with so much passion and he was an inspiration to me who was dreaming to become a singer. I wanted to get closer to him, but he liked the other members. I saw him talking to Daesung hyung over the phone. I saw him Taeyang hyung texting with Xiah Junsu hyung - about spending the nights together. *”cries”*

Shinyoung: Don’t cry. Let it out.

Seungri: Xiah Junsu hyung, in the future please know my feelings for you/heart towards you. Please make me feel welcome next time we meet.

Shindong: That’s really tearjerking.

Shinyoung: Junsu-sshi, I hope you become closer to Seungri.

translations: charixiahma@dbsglj

Big thanks to Amy for the translation


BigBangShinKi <3

Here’s the compiled interview of the 2 awhile back.


SeungRi’s interview

Q: Do you have a song you like to sing?

SEUNG-RI: Songs that I like to listen to a lot is “Undwenayo” by Hwisong-ssi. And before I debut, I really really like “Timeless” by Dong Bang Shin Ki hyung especially Junsu hyung, whenever I listen to songs that he sings, I always feel very touched (laughs). I’ve learnt a lot from Dong Bang Shin Ki-hyung, I also registered in Junsu hyung’s fan cafe and post lots of news and photos. Because getting to know hyungs makes Big Bang and have Seungri in Big Bang. From now on I will try harder to show better and better products!

Q: Do you have a person you admire and really want to meet?

SEUNG-RI: Like I’ve just said, I really admire Junsu hyung from Dong Bang Shin Ki and I’ve learned a lot of things from him. I’ve bought Dong Bang Shin Ki’s CD and every time I listen to their songs I feel very good. To tell you the truth, if I get the chance to have a meal with Junsu hyung for once it would be so great. (laughs)

Xiah JunSu’s interview


Q: Recently, do you have a song that you like to sing?

JUNSU: Recently I’ve heard about a group called “Big Bang” a lot. And the song ‘Lies’ is very good (laughs). Especially when I found out that G-Dragon composed it himself, it makes me like the song even more.

(Yunho cuts in)

YUNHO: One day, Junsu bought Big Bang cd back home and we feel very honored that we bought Big Bang’s songs to listen to. Junsu listens to ‘Lies’ from Big Bang all the time.

Q: If so, have you heard about Seungri-ssi from Bigbang being your fanclub?

JUNSU: Aaaaa… yes, I’ve heard about this before and I feel very thankful for everyone in Big Bang. Once I went on a show and got to meet Big Bang. I shook all of their hands and when Seung-ri shook my hands he won’t let go. We looked at each other in the eye and Seung-ri said “I’ve always admire you”, when he does that I smiled and he smiled, and Seung-ri greeted me (said hello) again and again. I was so surprised then. (laughs)

The song is for all Korean citizens who are suffering from the difficult economic crisis in 2009 to have everything they do as ‘big hits’.

The song, like ‘Look at me, GwiSoon’, is written by Big Bang member GDragon. The song was written for “young generations who enjoys trot music.”

Like how ‘Look at me, GwiSoon’ was performed during Big Bang’s previous concerts, ‘Big Hit’ will also be revealed during Big Bang’s concert at the Olympic Stadium from 29th January to 1st February.

DaeSung said, “I was worried how would this reflect Big Bang’s image. And thinking about how we are not just sticking to one style and music, so we came up with the name ‘Big Hit’ for the trot song. This song will become the comfort and motivation for everyone who are having a hard time now.”

The MV to this song will be directed by the same person who did ‘Lies’ and ‘Haru Haru’.

Big Bang Pulls Off Big Show in Seoul

sanghee@koreatimes.co.kr
Post taken from: 하늘비 @ VIPz Overseas/bbvipz (with permission to repost)

Pop group Big Bang indeed offered a “Big Show” at the Olympic Gymnastics Stadium Friday night. With more than 13,000 fans attending, the group captivated the audience with spectacular settings, their stage presence and songs.

Before the concert even started, fans were screaming when band members appeared on the two large screens on the sidelines of the main stage, which was connected to a narrower one, resembling a large B and extended slightly above standing fans, for a closer approach.

When the curtains finally rose, the band’s five members ― Dae-sung, G-Dragon, Tae-yang, T.O.P., and Victory ― walked down from the top of a long staircase at the center of the stage, with an orchestra playing their song “Day by Day.”

Dressed in white with gold accessories, the members appeared nervous, but they quickly regained their confidence as they started to sing and dance with fans, showing readiness for the big night ahead of them.

According to the group’s agency, YG Entertainment, they had prepared more than 300 costumes, and it was evident that the members put thought into everything, from G-Dragon’s headbands, T.O.P.’s sleek suits and sunglasses, Victory’s bow tie and Dae-sung’s gloves, to Tae-yang’s simple white tie.

“We have always performed at the year’s end, but this time we decided to perform in January and February. When we are done, you will all be very surprised,” G-Dragon said, greeting fans.

Individual performances were central features of the concert. Although most of the songs were performed as a group, they reminded fans that each member had his own style, and the “Big Show” was the perfect opportunity for members to show their individual talents.

Victory, also known as Seung-ri, showed his sexy side with his solo hit “Strong Baby,” while Tae-yang appeared playing the piano and singing “Only Look at Me” while suspended in the air. According to concert organizers, only two pianos can dangle in the air and it took careful preparation to bring the “floating” piano on stage. Dae-sung revealed his new trot song “Daebakiya,” or “It’s a Big Hit,” complete with a tight jacket and amusing dance moves and expressions.

T.O.P. offered his solo “Like Nothing Happened” in a suit and trench coat while walking through a rain shower, while G-Dragon transformed the stage into a club scene, with raging music and his own DJ booth, singing “This Love,” a remake number of American band Maroon 5’s hit song.

The group and concert organizers successfully connected with the audience, as band members bonded with the fans, up close and personal.

The narrow stage that stretched through the standing fans was perfect for the group to get closer to fans, as the members danced, ran and walked, waving to their cheering crowd.

At one point, members were hanging from poles attached to the stadium’s ceiling with wires, just to get closer to fans, who were waving and cheering on the second and third floors of the concert venue.

In the middle of the song “Lady,” G-Dragon picked up a camcorder and started filming fans, the image of which was projected on to the two large screens on stage. The camera captured fans and finally focused on one “lady” fan who was brought on stage for a friendly hug amid jealous onlookers.

With more than 20 songs, the band kept fans entertained, even when they went backstage for costume changes. The hit drama “Beethoven Virus” was spoofed in a clip called “Big Bang Virus,” while in another clip, band members visited an amusement park with colorful masks on.

Big Bang finished the show with encores “Red Sunset” and “The Last Goodbye,” bidding farewell to fans, smiling and wishing them a safe trip home.

Although the sound was a bit shaky throughout the performance, the “Big Show” attested to the strong star and idol power the group has among fans, while the group showed that they were more than just pretty boys. The songs, settings, costumes and overall arrangements of the concert were superb, and the five members pulled it off with charisma and charm.

GDragon gives his stand on fashion criticisms

GDragon, leader to idol group Big Bang, speaks up directly about criticisms about his fashion on ‘Mnet 20’s Choice’ last year.

GDragon had wore a top with prints ‘69′ and ‘Fuck you too’ amd ‘I ♥ SEX’ onto the stage then and was in the centre of criticisms after that.

In Big Bang’s book ‘Shouting to you in the world’ released on 28th January, GDragon gave his stand about the incident.



He said, “The clothes I wear is not about price or brand but about expression. When I say that music is the energy that moves me, fashion and clothes are the platforms for widening imagination. I had always wanted to work in the fashion industry if given the time and opportunity, and in my spare time of writing songs, I do make drawings and designs of clothes.”

“I wear my clothes with no relations to social standards but just as I feel like it but this has got me many criticisms along the way too. But the issue is also raised that as an entertainer in the centre of many’s attention, my conduct should be reconsidered and appropriate.” He added carefully.

“And especially so as a young singer wearing what is said to be a suggestive top and standing in front of the media on the stage. But I’m just wearing it because the tee shirt is one of the products by my favourite designer John Galliano and I liked it a lot.”
“And regarding my comment, ‘I don’t know anymore’ which was seen as an excuse by many, I have to apologise on my part of carelessness on that.”

Meanwhile, more juicy insights to the 5 Big Bang members in their recently-released book ‘Shouting to you in the world’. They will also be holding a press conference on the 6th.

BIG BANG's MAGNAE casted in a movie.



Big Bang's Seungri and KBS Boys Over Flowers' Kim Bum have been casted as main characters for an upcoming movie "71." Along with these two, a not so familiar face, Yoo SeungHo, also known as the "Little So Ji Sub", will play a role in this movie as well.

"71" is a story about 71 soldiers who fought in the war between North and South Korea on August 10th, 1950. The South Korean soldiers are led by their three commanders, Yun Chi Wook (Seungri), Park Han Seob (Kim Bum), and Eugene/Yoo Jin (Yoo SeungHo).

Let's just hope Seungri's acting is better than his singing. I don't wanna see any more of his crap crap crap crap! On the other hand, I have no doubts for Kim Bum. He has already proved that he is a great actor through his performance in KBS Boys Over Flowers. I'm looking forward to watching these boys on screen.

On a side note, for those who don't know who Yoo SeungHo is, he was born in 1993 and has already been in quite a few famous dramas and movies, although they were mostly minor roles. Hmm.. born in 1993, which makes him younger than most of us here.. Sigh, while this little fruitcake is starring in movies, I'm sitting here writing articles on my computer.. in my room.. alone. Sweet life. One of the best films he's ever been in, where he was a main character, was an old Korean movie from 2002, The Way Home. This movie is one of my all-time favorites. It will make you cry until snot is dangling from your nose, like polly-o string cheese. I recommend this movie to everyone and anyone out there.
