Big Bang, Even though our group activities ended we’re not taking a break, ‘They’re busy with individual activities’

[OSEN=Lee Jeong Ah reporter] Big Bang, who sold over 165,000 Volume 2 albums last year, went into a little break after ending their concerts in January. However, a “break” is merely speaking; it seems like it will be hard for them to take a break with so many people looking for them.

First, the busiest member is the youngest, Seung Ri, who successfully completed his ‘Strong Baby’ solo activities. As soon as he finished his solo activities early this month, Seung Ri delved into promoting the movie ‘Why Did You Come to My House’ which he starred in with Kang Hye Jeong. Also, he will soon begin shooting the omniverse Korean-Japanese collaborative drama ‘TeleCinema – My 19th year.’ Ending this filming does not bring a break to Seung Ri. He has been casted into the film ‘71’ with Kim Bum and Yoo Seung Ho and will take the role of a student soldier.

Likewise, leader G-Dragon is very busy now-a-days preparing for his solo album which is scheduled to be released in April. As news about his solo album reached his fans, the day they will be able to meet G-Dragon’s album has become their main focus. Tae Yang is also preparing for perfection for his own second solo album which is to be released after G-Dragon’s solo album.

It is seen that T.O.P will come one step closer to fans as an actor in 2009. After filming the ‘TeleCinema’ with Seung Ri, he will start shooting the drama ‘Iris.’ T.O.P will go to Japan this week for an ‘Iris’ shooting. He will stay in Japan for 2 weeks and film the drama.

The member who was the busiest last year with Big Bang activities, variety programs, and the musical ‘Cats,’ Dae Sung, is charging his energy by presenting himself only in the SBS show ‘I Like Sundays, Family Outing,’ in which he is appearing permanently.

An affiliate of their entertainment company said, “It was planned for them to go to America for at least a month’s break and visiting after their Volume 2 album promotions since they worked nonstop for 3 years. However, they haven’t even dreamt of a break yet because so many people are looking for them. The members still need a break and the plan for a vacation is still available, but we don’t know when that time will come. We don’t know if we should laugh or cry.”

Big Bang's Yacht Trip during the Cold



Big Bang has been spotted by the public while taking a summer vacation in the side of Han River.

Big Bang did a photoshoot on March 16th for Italian sport brand, FILA's summer collection.

The five members of Big Bang has been busy with individual schedules after their last concert on February 1st. The concepts for this photoshoot were 'brightness' and 'healthiness'; they were perfect for the images, and were stylish to prove their status as 'style icons'.

It was hard for the photoshoot on 16th due to the sand wind and cold weather. Big Bang members were in short sleeves and shorts; despite the bad weather, they were professional. While the yaght on the river was shaking vigorously due to the strong wind, they were still able to jump and dance for the photos.

This campaign will be on around May through videos, papers and stores after their spring collection.

Big Bang will carry out individual schedules as solo artists, in variety shows and acting, and is scheduled to release a next album.

Daesung and Seungri Talk


In an interview with Big Bang, the question "Do you prefer the Big Bang members or your Family Outing cast?" was directed towards Daesung. He replied "I love both my YG family and Family Outing cast because they are both family to me". G-Dragon piped up that "that's a boring question. How about 'Who do you like better between the Yang Hyun Suk and Yoo Jae Suk?'" Daesung quickly replied "Who do you think it is? It is the person that you guys are thinking of!" and escaped the dangerous question.

Seungri also mentioned during this interview that "I want to make a apartment commercial. Apartments are the big thing right now. I even have my own idea for it." He went on to explain his idea and drew laughs from those around him. Selfish Seungri, he already had a good solo response, has two movies on the way (Why Did You Come To My House and 71)

Yang said in a phone interview, “Since their debut in 2006, Big Bang has not got the chance to rest properly. To make sure that they can make the best out of their Japanese promotions, they will have the whole of May to rest.”

Big Bang recently ended their promotion for their 3rd album title song ‘Sunset Glow’ last year.

YB/Taeyang Interview: Elle Korea September 2008 Issue

Author Note:
This is my translated version of Elle Korea’s interview with Big Bang from last September. I said “interview with Big Bang” but, as usual, I translated only YB/Taeyang’s part.


Trying to arrange for an interview and a photo shoot with Big Bang for a month or so, I found out how jam-packed their schedule was. It was only a week before the release of their third mini album that I could finally sit them down for an interview at a studio.

As usual, they were insanely busy shooting a music video and doing last-minute preparations for their impending comeback but I managed to snatch a few precious minutes. From anyone’s perspective, it was a killer schedule. But this is what Taeyang said: “We’re happy to be able to work like this.” A 20 year old who gives mature answers, making smiley eyes - his trademark smile that they say wins over female fans of all ages. “Now we get to try a lot of new things. But we all think that it could be now or never. It’s true that we have to manage a hectic schedule but we’re very happy to have all these opportunities.” Another smile. A stock answer but it doesn’t feel like a pretense because we know what they went through up to their debut.

Taeyang has been with YG Entertainment for 9 years now. However, no matter how good you are, being a YG trainee is synonymous with being a candidate who can fail to make the cut anytime. During the chaotic adolescent years when it is allowed to make mistakes and behave immaturely, he must have had to constantly prove himself. What’s known as the “Big Bang Documentary Series” showing the group’s pre-debut days is actually full of evidence for it.

What does music mean to him? Is it really worth all those years of devotion? “You’re right. I don’t know. But there is an upside too. While most kids were wasting time, trying to find themselves, confused and dazed, GD and I could pass through the period relatively easily because we belonged to YG and were doing music and because we knew what we wanted to do for certain. It’s true that our trainee years had been long and hard but we lived through it and as a result we are now much stronger and have the tenacity to accomplish goals.”

Then they debuted as Big Bang and years of hard training has actually helped Taeyang become a member that stood out in the group. Of course, according to him, they haven’t changed - they’re simply doing more things. “It applies to everything – this shoot we’re doing today for a fashion magazine, the music. You constantly change and get upgraded. Just like your taste that changes constantly, we try to listen to and absorb many different kinds of music. Still, the root of my music stays the same - yes, black music.”

Recently, Taeyang became the first Big Bang member to release a solo album and held two successful solo concerts. The album’s title song, “Look at Only Me” topped many charts. His wide fan base grew even wider. Doing the music he loves and being loved for it must be every musician’s dream come true. “It’s like all my wishes have come true. Through this solo album, I did everything I wanted to so badly for so long. Yes, I am truly happy.”

His concerts were great success too - in terms of choreography and the decision to use a live band as well as of music. While Big Bang’s concerts depend primarily on MR (music recorded), in Taeyang’s concerts, everything was played live, including his piano performances. “I really had had so much I wanted to show you and I think I showed you all of it at those concerts. Thinking back, I was so happy it almost feels like I had happy dreams.”

He keeps saying “happy” and “thankful,” smiling. For a moment, I was at a loss how to interpret this. As far as I recall, I’ve never met a man who oozes male pheromones yet smiles with such innocence before. From what I hear from people I know who gush over Taeyang, what made him the sexy icon for women older than he is was very clear: his sensual voice and killer body that show what “groove” is all about. But he just smiled an innocent smile, saying he just wanted to make himself more physically fit for better performances on stage and didn’t expect it to turn out to be this good.

He said, “But then my image as an innocent boy follows me everywhere. It wasn’t intended and makes me feel very uncomfortable. It’s almost like, people will get mad at me if I don’t get married to the first girl I meet and fall in love with.”

Watching him get all shy, I was reminded of what GD had told me about Taeyang a few minutes ago during his interview. He argued that first and foremost Taeyang should have a girlfriend. Speaking as a friend of 8 years, he thinks Taeyang is simply too great a catch. His skills as a musician are improving at an amazing pace and it would be perfect only if he met a girl he could fall in love with, GD claimed. He is right. Music does come from emotions and feelings, and Taeyang does do “black music.” Love is actually the best ingredient in “soul.” However, once again, Taeyang tries to avoid the question with his trademark smile. “I don’t know. I’m not really that type of… a little bit later… Besides, I am very busy and you can’t really fall in love just because it is necessary. That’s not right. You know what? I’d love to go wakeboarding, hahaha.”

BIG BANG REPRESENTS TWENTYSOMETHINGS


Q: [What] person symbolizes twentysomethings?

Tablo: “Umm… Big Bang? [The reporter laughs and claps.] Why not Big Bang? It’s an honest answer. Big Bang is like the twentysomething generation, and among them Daesung is most like it. He’s not completely grown up yet, but it seems like he wants to try everything fearlessly, and enjoys whatever he does. Twentysomethings usually don’t know what they want to do.”

‘Lollipop’ top charts, performing beyond expectations



Big Bang and newcomer group 2NE1’s ‘Lollipop’ CM song has showed itself to be a great hit, sweeping up #1 position on various online music charts.

On the 6th, the song took Super Junior ‘Sorry Sorry’ and Davichi ‘8282′ off the #1 position on Melon. The song also top charts on Dosirak, Bugs, Mnet and CyWorld.

The song going up to the #1 position on music charts had a greater meaning to it. Because it is a CM song, it is not possible to hear it on radio or on music programmes. Only a MV and a 30 sec CF of it has been released.

YG also spoke up about it, “Since Big Bang has stopped all their official schedule, it is impossible that they will perform the song on stage, the results are beyond our expectations.”

Meanwhile, Big Bang will be staying in Japan in June-July and there are plans for them to advance the Japanese music market again.
