Seungri wants Big Bang to be five members forever

21 Jul

Despite the negativity concerning fellow Big Bang member Daesung after being involved in a car accident, Seungri has enlightened their fans after his recent me2day update.

On a recent update, Seungri was quoted saying, “I want us to be five members ^^ Forever.” The update also contained a photo of Big Bang, complete as five members. Fans who have seen the update were touched by Seungri’s indirect message to Daesung, after all the press coverage.

Recently, Daesung along with YG Entertainment, have finally reached a settlement with the victim’s family and is likely to be summoned again for another round of investigation.

Meanwhile, Seungri will join the rest of YG Entertainment as they fly to Japan with 2NE1 for a special event. Details of their new announcement will be confirmed live via UStream tomorrow.

What are your thoughts on Seungri’s me2day update?

Big Bang Postpones Tokyo and Yokohama concert due to Aftershocks

20 Apr

With Big Bang’s Japanese promotions set to begin in early May, many fans have expressed their concerns over the group’s safety in Japan because major aftershocks have been disrupting all over the country lately. However, much to their relief, YG Entertainment has confirmed local media today that Big Bang’s Japanese promotions will be shortened to two weeks, as opposed to the original two month plan, and the Tokyo and Yokohama concerts will be postponed indefinitely.

“All Big Bang members really want to do the concerts in Japan as originally planned to show their support and love for everyone hurt by the recent disaster. But there still are major aftershocks happening in Japan, and many fans from other countries have voiced their concerns over Big Bang’s security. We thought it was a major concern too so we decided to postpone the Tokyo and Yokohama concerts, which haven’t sold any tickets yet,” an official from YGE told Star News Money Today.

However, the concerts in Osaka, Chiba, and Nagoya will be held as planned since all tickets have been sold out already and the members have visited the concert halls in each city twice to check out the security there, according to the official. This means Big Bang will hold a total of eight concerts over two weeks in Japan: Osaka from May 10th to 11th, Chiba from May 13th to 15th, and Nagoya from the 17th to 19th. Big Bang released their special edition album on Apr. 8th and will promote the album until May 1st in Korea. Their second full Japanese album will be released on May 11th.

We previously reported on the track list for Big Bang’s 4.5 album, and now YGE Shop has the album up for pre-order, with some new details.

Though the album price of 17,000 won ($15.44 USD) and a pre-order date ending on April 7th are new info, the biggest revelation is the album cover. The new cover contrasts with the teaser cover, which was starkly put on a white background, and the mini-album cover, which was white-on-black. This new album cover features a neon green skull outline. If you look closely, you can tell that the skull’s teeth form the keys of the piano.

The album will contain 10 songs, a Big Bang poster, YG Family Card, and a 100+ page photobook. The album can be pre-ordered at YGE Shop.

Big Bang proves YouTube statement false

8 Mar

Not only has Big Bang had an explosive music show comeback, they’ve also been setting YouTube ablaze, as well.

Since releasing the music video for their single “Tonight”, the 5-member group has racked up over 2 million views for that video alone in just over a week. The video not only ranked highly in Japan and Korea in terms of views (2nd), but also made it into the top 10 in countries such as Australia, New Zealand, and even France. In addition, the band’s official channel, BIGBANG, boasts over 6 million views itself.

Such records disprove the statement made by Japanese journalist Taro Kimura, which claimed that South Korea was attempting to increase views for K-pop videos by themselves, when it is clear that the views are international.

What do you think of the statement? Do you think K-pop’s views are more international than Korea-based?
