[EXCLUSIVE] BIGBANG Appears in “Happy Together”, 1st Appearance in KBS Entertainment Show in 9 Years since Debut
Popular boy group BIGBANG appears in KBS 2TV’s entertainment show “Happy Together 3″. It is the first time for the team to appear in KBS’s entertainment program, in nine years since their debut.
According to broadcasting industry insiders on the 11, BIGBANG takes part in shooting of “Happy Together 3″ at KBS located in Yeoui-do, Seoul, on May 15. “Happy Together 3″ is a talk show hosted by Yoo Jae-suk, and the show is expected to be a good opportunity for fans to look into BIGBANG’s thoughts.
Some of the BIGBANG members have appeared in “Star Golden Bell” and “Gag Concert” in early days of their debut, but there was no case where all the five members appeared in KBS TV’s entertainment show. It is known that the decision for BIGBANG’s appearance in “Happy Together” was made in a meeting between YG Entertainment’s head YANG HYUN SUK and a high-ranking official of KBS’s Entertainment Bureau.

YG artists including BIGBANG have not been appearing in KBS TV’s programs for the recent few years. However, after JINUSEAN’s performance in “Music Bank” this year, the relationship between YG and KBS has turned amicable. Some speculated that YG and KBS may begin communication again by making use of JINUSEAN’s performance in “Music Bank” as an opportunity. In addition, BIGBANG has also made a decision to appear in KBS’s long-lived talk show “Happy Together 3″. So, people are paying keen attention to whether YG artists will actively appear in KBS’s programs to more communicate with fans.
Meanwhile, BIGBANG has been in the No.1 place on the chart of music-streaming websites and music shows since the release of their new song “LOSER” on May 1. They took the top rank in MBC’s “Show! Music Center” on the 9 and received a trophy in SBS “INKIGAYO” on the 10.
