Translation: Congratulations!



BIGBANG is to appear on Weekly Idol.

After much discussion, BIGBANG members and YANG HYUN SUK decided that BIGBANG will appear on three major variety shows: MBC’s Infinite Challenge, Radio Star and Weekly Idol.

Sources said, “It is true that BIGBANG has been refraining from doing variety shows during the last few years. But now, I think YANG HYUN SUK had a change of thoughts. He thought of their fans, who wouldn’t be able to see BIGBANG members together for a while after T.O.P enlists in the military. He probably thought that BIGBANG making appearances on variety shows would be a way to make the fans less sorry, and he suggested this to the members. The members agreed with him, and after much consideration, they decided to appear on three variety shows.”

(Interview②) BIGBANG Says, “We’re living a dream.”

The reason why the 10th anniversary of BIGBANG (G-DRAGON, T.O.P, TAEYANG, DAESUNG and SEUNGRI) is remarkable is that all five of them have been together the whole time in addition to making astonishing achievements. Out of all the second-generation idol groups that debuted around the same time as BIGBANG, it is the only group that has survived with original members.

When asked what they thought would happen in ten years time when they just debuted, BIGBANG members answered, “’It was something that we couldn’t even imagine.” At that time, T.O.P, the oldest among BIGBANG members, was 20, and SEUNGRI, the youngest, was 17. It must have been hard for them to even think about what would happen in a few years time let alone after ten years.

They kept on going for ten years. They decided to release their third regular album “MADE THE FULL ALBUM” to round off the 10th anniversary of their debut. Everything they did during the past ten years became an issue. Not just their music and fashion, but the members’ everyday lives received spotlight. BIGBANG says, “We’re living a singer’s dream.”

10. Are the lyrics of “LAST DANCE” your story? I sense anxiety in the lyrics.

G-DRAGON: It is how we feel about the situation we’re in at this moment. When I write lyrics, I put a lot of thought into it. But, for some reason, this came out really quickly and easily. I’m almost thirty, and I only hang out with a selected few. There’s no point anymore. I just want to be with those whom I feel comfortable around. When we were recording the songs, I told the members to not try so hard. I didn’t want the members to sing this song with great techniques. I wanted them to sing the song as if they are talking and really mean what they are singing. I wanted a lot of emotion in their singing.

10. Even you guys feel anxious?

T.O.P: Emotionally, we’re always unstable (everyone laughs).

G-DRAGON: We’ve been doing great. But there’s not guarantee that we’ll keep on doing great. I know this too well. If you go up, someday you will go down. It’s a given. We all know this. It’s not that we’re anxious or worried; we just want things to stay as it is and be happy. You never know what will happen. It’s not that we’re really worried about a particular thing. We just don’t know what will happen in the future. We wonder what our 11th anniversary will be like and what we should do after we’ve done our military service. We have a lot on our minds I guess.

(Interview ①) BIGBANG Says, “’FXXX IT’ came out when we didn’t know what to do and were just sighing.”

BIGBANG (G-DRAGON, T.O.P, TAEYANG, DAESUNG, and SEUNGRI) released its third regular album in the winter of their 10th anniversary year. The album, “MADE THE FULL ALBUM”, consists of eight MADE project songs released last year, two title tracks, and a new song titled “GIRLFRIEND”. The title songs are “FXXX IT” and “LAST DANCE”. Upon their release at 12 AM on December 13, BIGBANG’s three new songs have take the top 3 spots of Korea’s eight major online charts. On the day of the album’s release, BIGBANG’s new songs went off the chart for measuring realtime plays 18 times and those who played the songs surpassed 1.21 million on Melon, the biggest music streaming website in Korea.

This indicates that not only V.I.Ps, the official name for BIGBANG fans, but also the general public were waiting for BIGBANG’s music. This is the behind story of BIGBANG’s comeback.

10. You guys have finally made a comeback.

DAESUNG: We’ve been doing our “MADE” project since last year, and we know that it took us long to release the full album (smiles). We’re sorry, but we’re thankful that we were able to finish it as late as it is. We happy to see so many people like our songs and that we didn’t work hard for nothing.

10. It will be the last album before you guys enlist in the military.

SEUNGRI: That’s why it’s more meaningful. Soon, the five of us won’t be able to do music together for a while. It’s sad that our fans and people will not be able to see us as a group, but this is all the more reason why we’re putting everything into the promotions for this album.

10. The album doesn’t have an intro song.


DAESUNG: Gosh, I haven’t thought of that. There’s no outro song either (everyone laughs).
