Big Bang “You & I” Spot [VIDEO]


Big Bang‘s known for shaking up the conventional concepts of K-Pop, so it should come as no surprise that they have a little special something up their sleeves for their performance on an upcoming episode of SBS‘s ‘You & I’!

In collaboration with the same band that they performed with at their ‘2012 Big Show’ concert, the boys will be setting up a stage unlike any they’ve presented before to create a concert on the level of ‘world class’.

The live band they’ll be performing with is a dream team that has worked with the likes of Mariah Carey, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Britney Spears, Chris Brown, and many more. This will be the first time they’ll be performing with Big Bang on a Korean broadcast show, so anticipation is definitely on the rise.

They’ve completely rearranged their fifth mini-album tracks like “Blue“, “Bad Boy“, “Fantastic Baby“, and even their previous hit, “Tonight“, just for the show.

Their ‘You & I’ guesting will also include a talk segment with MCs Jung Jae Hyung and Lee Hyori where they’ll show a wittier side to their stage charisma. And of course, this will also mark the reunion of the ‘Family Outing 1‘ siblings, Daesung and Hyori, for the first time in two years.

Who is the cutest “bbooing bbooing” star? [NEWS]


Since MBC’s sitcom High Kick 3 became popular, stars are using the ‘Bbooing Bbooing’ pose from the sitcom as well.

Many stars are uploading pictures of themselves posing ‘Bbooing Bbooing’ on their Twitter or me2day accounts, proving that the sitcom is popular among stars too.

On March 13, Big Bang’s G-Dragon posted a picture of Seungri posing the upgrade version of ‘Bbooing Bbooing’ on his me2day account.

Yeo Jin Goo, who appeared on MBC’s series The Moon Embracing the Sun, posed ‘Bbooing Bbooing’ and f(x)’s Sulli and Amber also took a self portrait posing the same pose.

Kim Yoo Jung and Jung Il Woo, who also appeared on MBC’s series The Moon Embracing the Sun, and T-ara’s Ji Yeon also posed for the camera.

The word ‘Bbooing Bbooing’ became popular after Lee Jong Seok and Krystal used it in the sitcom. When they have a favor to ask of someone or when they want to avoid awkward situations, they say the world and act cutesy.

Billboard Korea: Big Bang is unstoppable [NEWS]



Debuting at No. 1 last week, with their lead single “Blue,” BIGBANG — as predicted — has gone on to dominate the top of the chart taking no less than half of the spots of the Top 10 on this week’s K-Pop Hot 100 chart.

The excitement around the new EP “Alive” has translated elsewhere from just digital downloads as the music video for “Blue” racking up over 14 million views so far. Capitalizing on these successes, the boys just kicked off their world tour, titled “ALIVE TOUR 2012,” in Seoul which drew more than 30,000 fans to the three-day event. BIGBANG will hit 16 different nations and 25 cities in Asia, North and South America, and Europe.

While every track from the EP charted with “Bang,” a track featuring only member Daesung, missing the Top 10 at No. 13 and the EP’s “Intro (Alive”) at No. 19, we look into three singles from the album that landed at the top of the chart.

While “Blue” spends its second week at the top, “Love Dust” shot up to the No. 2 spot, pushing miss A’s, “Touch” down to No. 4. “Love Dust” is a collaboration between producer Teddy and BIGBANG member G-Dragon. In this song, they put a rock twist, over the electro-pop, sample-heavy beat to compliment the soothing vocals and rap.

Looking down one spot on the chart one finds “Bad Boy,” debuting at No. 3, is a concoction of R&B melodies, hip-hop beats and little bit of jazz piano. The track was produced by G-Dragon and Choice 37, an in-house YG Entertainment producer. In the accompanying video, the boys stride down the streets of Brooklyn while adding in some free-flowing raps and sensual vocals. The members each get their own turn in the spotlight with G-Dragon and TOP’s singing/rapping combinations, Taeyang’s charismatic tone, and Daesung and Seungri’s melting voices all flow well together.

Unlike, “Blue” or “Bad Boy,” the next highest charting single, “Fantastic Baby,” is a big-time head-banger, with its catchy beats and infectious chorus verse, that is sure to make all types of pop fans happy. With a breakdown that sounds similar to the will.i.am/ Jennifer Lopez/ Mick Jagger collaboration ” T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)” and a catchy chorus (“I wanna dan- dan- dan- dan- dance”) the song is perhaps the most accessible to American audiences. In the music video, the boys flaunt their over-the-top personalities that made them famous in Korea with some eye-popping outfits, props, and hairpieces.

BIGBANG’s big splash on the charts this week is obviously creating waves and a big shake-up in the rankings. Ailee (No. 5 – No. 6), K. Will (4 – 9), John Park (6 – 11), all slipped down the chart. An interesting note does come for the four-week chart topper Lyn, however, who debuts at No. 20 with her new single, “Let it Rain.” But for now, BIGBANG rules.
