With revenue pouring in and TV ratings escalating with each appearance, it’s no surprise that Big Bang seems to have Korea wrapped around their fingers… but it looks like the quintet has already set its eyes on broader horizons.
While watching the Big Bang Show, one eagle-eyed fan noted the following excerpt and clipped the following four-second segment to share with the rest of the Internet. Check it out below:
Kang Seung Yoon’s “You Are My Heaven” has finally been released!
On the episode of “Strong Heart” aired on the 22nd, G.Dragon revealed an incident that happened during his friend’s birthday. He went bowling with his friends, and because he was drunk, he performed a comical dance [막춤 (makchum)] in front of SNSD.
G.Dragon stated “I’m not really close with SNSD members. However, when I heard afterwards that I danced in front of YoonA, Tiffany, HyoYeon, and SooYoung, I was pretty surprised. I’m not usually a person who would do those kind of things.”
As Kang Hodong was listening the story, he asked G.Dragon who, amongst YoonA, Tiffany, SooYoung, and HyoYeon, is his ideal type.
G.Dragon picked YoonA as the final winner. Upon the request of a video message, G.Dragon said “I really don’t know why they are telling me to convey this message. The last time we met at a bowling game, I made some mistakes. I’m usually not like that.”
With Big Bang’s two year comeback drawing closer, it was recently reported that Big Bang set a new record in the most number of album pre-sales purchased, overtaking TVXQ’s 2008 record.
For the past week, music site Cyworld has been holding an online event whereby members can pre-purchase Big Bang’s new mini-album for 30 “acorns” (the site’s currency), which is to be released on February 24th.
The online site revealed that their event has sold about 10,000 albums in pre-sales in just six days, which is roughly double the record of Seo Taiji’s 5,084 pre-sale units back in 2008, as well as TVXQ’s 6,500 units during their 4th full album release in the same year.
What Seo Taiji, TVXQ, and Big Bang have in common within the results is that they were all making a comeback after a long wait. Seo Taiji’s 2008 album was his comeback after four years, while it was TVXQ’s two year comeback. Similarly, Big Bang’s comeback this year will mark their first album in two years and three months, and music associates are judging this to be the reason behind their extraordinary volume in album pre-sales.
Meanwhile, Big Bang will be meeting their fans once again through their three-day “2011 Big Show” concert starting from February 25th at the Seoul Olympic Gymnasium. The group is then set to reveal their tracks through SBS’s “Special Comeback Show” on the following 27th.
