7. Tok Tok (Mighty Mouth) (4252 + 250 + 0 + 1665) = (Total 6167 Points)

Note: Because Big Bang released their album on Thursday, and the week starts on Monday for Music Bank, so Big Bang only gets half of the week counted, while everyone else had a whole week of sales. YG always releases their albums on a Thursday because they know they can win with only half a week of sales, saving more sales for the following week.

Big Bang might get over 25k points in total with digital + album scores alone the following week when they get a whole week's worth of sales recorded.

[News]G-Dragon talks about his "Cafe" experience

Seoul, Korea — Group Big Bang’s G-Dragon (Kwon Ji Yong, age 23) revealed that he composed a song about his experience of separation.

G-Dragon, making a comeback in two years and three months, revealed on SBS’s special edition The Big Bang Show, airing on the 27th, that “Café,” composed and written by himself, is about his experience of separation.

G-Dragon said, “I have received news of separation at a café. I wrote ‘Café’ with that experience in mind.”

Meanwhile, Big Bang made a spectacular comeback through this program with “Tonight,” the title song of the mini album, stages of their hit songs such as “Lies,” talks, and parodies.

[NEWS] Big Bang’s SBS Big Show gets high ratings!

Big Bang’s comeback took over the airwaves with a big bang!
According to AGB Nielsen Media Research, SBS’s hour-long special ’The Big Bang Show”achieved a 5.7% rating when it aired on February 27th. It’s actually a high figure, considering that its airtime was after midnight. In comparison, ‘Kim Jung Eun’s Chocolate’, which originally airs in that time block, only achieved 3.3% last week.
The boys excited their viewers by performing their original hits, as well as tracks from their fourth mini-album. After kicking off their set with the lively “Hands Up“, Big Bang moved on to “Somebody to Love“, “Cafe“, “What is Right“, and “Tonight“; they also performed “Lie“, “Sunset Glow” and “Last Farewell“.
In addition to the performances, the group also took part in a hilarious parody of SBS’s hit drama, “Secret Garden“. Viewers saw G-Dragon take on the role of ‘Gil Ra Im’ (originally played by Ha Ji Won), while T.O.P played as Hyun Bin’s ‘Kim Joo Won’.
As the cherry on top, the boys also unveiled the music video for their title track, “Tonight“. Considering all the treats SBS delivered for the Big Bang fans out there (and for those who just wanted to learn more about this hot group), it’s no wonder that the boys managed to rake in big figures for their hour-long special.

[RUMOR] “Tonight” MV: English Version?

While watching The BIGBANG Show on SBS, thousands of fans watched a 3-second clip of G-Dragon fliming the “Tonight” music video. However, he rapped an English verse that is not originally featured in the song. This had many fans wondering if they were also in Las Vegas to film an English version of the “Tonight” MV for the American music market.
There has been speculation over the past few months that BIGBANG would be debuting in America with 2NE1, their female label-mates.
Watch G-Dragon rap the English verse around 0:30 in the video above, after Taeyang is finished speaking.

[News] SBS sells out ads for ‘The Big Bang Show’

SBS is advertising its one-hour special program ‘The Big Bang Show,’ which will air on the 27th at midnight, during midnight TV programming.

According to SBS, the network sold all of its ‘The Big Bang Show’ commercials even for late-night time blocks. This shows that advertisers have recognized the value and power of Big Bang’s come back in two years and three months.

It is often difficult to spot commercials for popular programs, except for sports, during midnight TV programming.

This will be Big Bang’s first TV appearance since ‘Big Show’ come back. They will kick off the show with ‘Lie,’ ‘Sunset Glow’ and the latest song ‘Tonight,’ and also reveal their new music video.

Big Bang members will also take on acting in parodies. They will reveal ‘Secret Big Bang,’ their parody of SBS drama ‘Secret Garden.’
In the parody, G-Dragon plays Gil Ra Im, TOP plays Kim Joo Won, Daesung plays Joo Won's secretary and Kim Joo Won's mother and Seungri plays Oska.

Fans are buzzing over G-Dragon and TOP’s acting skills. Top has already starred in TV drama ‘Iris’ and movie ‘Into the Fire.’ But G-Dragon has only focused on activities as a musician.

It has also been rumored that the ‘Tonight’ music video includes Daesung’s first bed scene. At the ‘Big Show’ concert, held this weekend for 3 days,’ TOP had apparently told fans that “Daesung got his first lead role in the ‘Tonight’ music video and he has a scandalous scene.”
Then Daesung explained, “Top means a ‘bad scene,” and added onto the mysteries about the music video.

SBS’s one-hour special ‘The Big Bang Show’ will perform all six songs from their mini album that topped the music charts and was filmed over 2 days (18th and 23rd).

According to the producer, Big Bang showed an awesome stage despite being idle on broadcasts for a long time. They also staged dynamic fashion style for each song, and impressed the staff members.

“Many staff members couldn’t hide their amazement over Big Bang’s stage and charisma that stands apart from other idol groups,’ said one staff member.

[News] Daesung's first "bed scene" to be revealed on The Big Bang Show

On the 27th Big Bang’s 1-hour special “Big Bang Show” will be shown through SBS. From their old hits such as “Lie”, “Sunset Glow“, to their latest songs from their mini-album “Tonight” as well as the music video, SBS will showcase them all.

Another reason attention has been gathered for the “Big Bang Show”, is the release of the parody Big Bang members did of SBS drama “Secret Garden”. Big Bang’s challenge at acting will be unveiled this same day via the parody they titled “Secret Big Bang”.

Big Bang fans are eager to see the acting skills of TOP and G-Dragon. While TOP’s acting ability has already been certified through TV drama “Iris” and movie “Into the Fire”, G-Dragon has only had activities as a singer so his acting is still in question.

The first disclosure of the ‘Tonight’ MV will include Daesung’s first bed scene and has garnered a lot of speculation. This weekend Big Bang has been holding their annual “Big Show” concert for 3 days, at the concert TOP revealed to the fans, “In the new “Tonight” music video, for the first time Daesung was given the lead role for a bed scene.”

After a 2 year and 6 months absence Big Bang released their mini-album on the 24th and had their comeback via their 3-day BIG SHOW concert. Their first official comeback on TV will be through SBS who has organized a 1-hour special for Big Bang in secrecy. Big Bang’s mini-album successfully did an ‘all-kill’ on music charts with all 6 songs charting.

[NEWS] Seungri, “I was tricked once by a night club’s manager”

Big Bang’s Seungri will be a guest on the February 28th episode of SBS’s “Night After Night, Idol’s Legend.” During this episode, the idol revealed a time when he was tricked by a night club manager.
Seungri confessed, “Before my solo promotions for “Strong Baby“, I secretly went to a night club without my agency knowing, and the club manager tricked me. I wanted to go to the night club to increase my masculinity, and I only went because I believed the manager when he said that he would keep my visit out of the public’s eye. However, in order to increase sales, he purposefully publicized my visit ahead of time.”
He added, “And of all places, an acquaintance of my boss’, Yang Hyun Suk, happened to be there, so I ended up getting caught.”
To this story, Seungri added a moral, “Hoobaes (juniors), don’t believe the night club managers!”, causing much laughter in the studio.

(MISC/FANACCOUNT) Fanaccount from BIG SHOW 2011

Let’s begin with meeting Hwang Ssabu-nim (YG trainer) on the subway 4 hours before the show…
I met up with a few lovely Filipino VIPs in Gangnam, and then we made our way towards Jamsil on line 2. Lo and behold, one or two stops later, one of my friends noticed that Ssabu-nim came into our subway car and was standing right behind me. He was in his usual gear with a backwards YG Family concert hat and sweet Dr. Dre Beats headphones. I was surprised at how smaller he was in person. But he was still as fit as ever of course.
I caught his attention and told him how much I love him (I basically love every single person working in YG, even the stylists, managers, and Everyone in between, though I forgot to tell him how cute his son is since he posts his pictures often on Twitter.
