[BIGBANG’s Comeback②] BIGBANG, the Only Idol Group on the Rise for Ten Years
“It’s scary. They are getting stronger, not weaker.”
These are the words of Kangta, a member of a first generation idol group and a SM director. Like he said, it is becoming more popular as time goes by. It is the only group that has been on the rise for ten years. He’s talking about BIGBANG.
There’s a limit to how far idol groups can go. After debut, idol groups’ popularity soars thanks to their huge fans bases. But after a while, new idol groups appear, and the public’s interest moves on. After their seven-year contract expires, members usually go their separate ways.
This is why BIGBANG is even more special. The group’s presence is only getting stronger day by day. Not only as a group but also as individuals, the members are exerting great influence in all branches of the culture industry.
According to experts, BIGBANG was able to make such remarkable achievements because the group has risen above the limitations of an idol group and is loved by all generations. There is no match for BIGBANG, which has become an iconic symbol of Korea’s pop music.
The group has a host of hit songs that is loved by everyone. Last year alone, BIGBANG produced a number of hit songs through its MADE project. The group released two songs every month, and all the songs topped the charts in and out of the country.
Now, the grand finale of BIGBANG’s MADE project is drawing near. The group’s MADE full album will be released on December 12. The title tracks are “FXXX IT” and “LAST DANCE”. Along with the title tracks, all the previously released MADE songs including “LOSER”, “BAE BAE”, “LET’S NOT FALL IN LOVE”, and “ZUTTER” are included in the album.
After releasing the full album, BIGBANG is going to actively promote the album via various channels. Fans have been waiting for BIGBANG’s regular album for eight years. Therefore, BIGBANG will be closely interacting with their fans by doing V App shows, appearing on variety shows, attending award ceremonies, and holding concerts.
It will be interesting to see how big a hit BIGBANG’s new album will be. And, we only have to wait a day to find out.
