[NEWS] BIGBANG Everywhere, Now Appears in TV Talk Shows in Addition to Music Shows
There are BIGBANG everywhere. While sweeping top places on charts ever since their comeback on the 1 this month, BIGBANG now begins to dominate TV music shows and entertainment shows, too. The team is setting a variety of unprecedented records with two new songs “LOSER” and “BAE BAE”, and they have announced a plan to release new songs on the 1 of every month until September.
First, BIGBANG is appearing in an entertainment TV show. They have been restraining from appearing in KBS’s entertainment shows for the recent few years, but will soon appear in “Happy Together” as a complete team.
That is their first-ever appearance in a KBS’s entertainment program in nine years since their debut. BIGBANG has not been frequently seen in TV shows so far unlike other idol groups, especially talk shows. That was because BIGBANG has been focused on their music itself, as an “artist”. The only TV talk shows BIGBANG has appeared in the nine years of their successful career as a musician were SBS’s “Strong Heart” and “Healing Camp”.
As for reality shows, MBC’s “The Infinite Challenge” and SBS “I Love Sunday-Running Man” are the only ones in which BIGBANG has appeared. All these TV shows are hosted by Yoo Jae-suk, an MC famous for his comfortable and witty hosting. “Happy Together 3″ in which BIGBANG will soon appear is also hosted by Yoo. Yoo and BIGBANG have showed their friendship in TV shows several times so far.
Yoo led SBS’s entertainment program “I Love Sunday-The Family Has Come” with DAESUNG’s regular appearance in it, and performed with G-DRAGON in “The Infinite Challenge”‘s music festival. That is why people are paying keen attention to the new encounter between Yoo and BIGBANG, as Yoo always creates a fun atmosphere. So, the focus of people’s interest is what harmony Yoo and BIGBANG will show in “Happy Together 3″.
Plus, as BIGBANG is known to be discussing on their appearance in SBS “Running Man”, fans will be able to see BIGBANG on TV more than ever.
The next is music shows. BIGBANG will appear in Mnet’s “M-Countdown” on the 14, in KBS 2 TV’s “Music Bank” on the 15, and in SBS “INKIGAYO” on the 17, to give captivating performances.
Plus, BIGBANG’s “LOSER” and “BAE BAE” are also staying in the No.1 and No.2 places on the daily chart of major music-streaming websites for 13 days since their release. BIGBANG’s new song “LOSER” and “BAE BAE” released on the 1 this month at 0 o’clock took the No.1 and No.2 places on the 13, on the daily chart of Korea’s major music websites including Melon, Bugs, and Monkey3.
While BIGBANG is showing off the “BIGBANG power” by dominating the top places on the real-time, daily, and weekly chart of music websites since their release, music fans are paying keen attention to until when such records will be maintained.
The music videos released in line with new songs are also creating sensation consistently. As of the 13 at 2pm, “LOSER” and “BAE BAE” are recording total 31,319,776 views on YouTube, 17,196,932 and 14,122,844 respectively.
Meanwhile, BIGBANG will release total four single albums, “M”, the project single including “LOSER” and “BAE BAE”, then “A”, “D”, and “E” every month. Then, “MADE” album will be released in September. Along with the release of the albums, BIGBANG will have a world tour that begins in Guangzhou on the 30 this month and continues to 15 countries in Asia and America until 2016. BIGBANG will meet 1.4 million fans around the world in the 70 concerts of the tour.
