[NEWS] Other Than Making MVs, Why BIGBANG Went to America?
There are only about two weeks then BIGBANG will comeback with their ‘Bigshow’ after their more-than-2-year hiatus. Their leaving for America on 7th has really arouse our attention.
It seems that they embarked the journey because they have to film the MVs of the songs in their brand new album. A staff of YGE revealed that they are now preparing MVs which are in different styles from those in the past. In order to capture the natural beauty of the scenery as most as possible and jump out of the mundane framework of a MV, they have chosen America to film them.
However, if we take a look at the schedule of their America journey, we can then conclude that they are not only going there to film the MVs. Since YGE has planned that BIGBANG and 2NE1 should advance into the overseas market the soonest in this year, it has invited famous American musicians to take part in their music production since last year and the frequency is getting higher and higher.
On the day that BIGBANG departed, the world class musicians, DJ of Black Eyed Peas and DJ Poet came to Korea to help producing the album of 2NE1. It also signifies an important step of YGE’s advancing into the overseas market.
The president of YGE also said, “we have been actively supporting the collaboration between our artists and the overseas producers, there are many American Hip Hop musicians who like BIGBANG and 2NE1. I have also been taking advice from them.”
‘BIGSHOW’ will be held from 25-27 in Seoul Olympic Park. Different from other idol groups, they would not comeback on TV channels but in their ‘BIGSHOW’. Such kind of dedication to their concerts and the high quality of the shows are the specialties of BIGBANG.
In this way, BIGBANG do not only film their MVs in America but are also having meetings with their potential partners in making music and as the same time, they are also discussing their direction and strategy of advancing into the America market.
