Jung-Yup admitted that because of Big Bang’s Seungri, he has special way of holding the microphone while singing.

Jung-Yup and Lee sun hee performed on MBC show “Come to Play” on 25th April. In that show, Jung-Yup and Lee sun hee sang the theme song of popular animation, RUN HANY, both of them showed their talented voice.

When Jung-Yup performed on MBC show “I am a singer”, his habit of spinning the microphone became the focus to netizens. Kim Won Hee, the MC, asked the question to Jung-Yup “why do you spin the microphone while singing?” He answered “I don’t know why but I realized I have this habit ever since I learned that Big Bang’s Seungri had imitated me“.

Meanwhile, Yoo Jae-seok said “Keep the microphone around your mouth!”, creating laughter on the set.

[Interview] Big Bang Interview on Crazy for Asian Star Magazine Japan

Note: This interview may seem familiar as it is a translation (to Japanese) from a previous interview originally in Korean.

In [BIGBANG is Back] what changes have you challenged yourself with?
GD: rather than a change of style I think it’s an album that most clearly shows our growth. We’re still not musicians, not artists, but we’re not idol singers. We’re the right age to call ourselves idols, and we’ve felt thankful to everyone. So we want to express that the album is a transition of our growth from idols to musicians or artists.

The album contains the genre Digilog, but what sort of music is it?
Taeyang: recently in electronic music, as it’s an environment where the artist and listener are comfortable, the listeners also get bored a bit, I think. In everyone’s music you can’t see any huge differences, it makes you think there’s only a really minute variation between them. We have to get out of that situation. Moreover, global music is becoming more analogue in feel. Because of that, while the sound is current, we added a little analogue feel to the melody and tried to mix our old and new music together. As the current circumstances are hard, we want to comfort peoples’ hearts through warm music, so it’s Digilog music.

[NEWS] Big Bang with 5 of the top songs from the last decade!

Melon, a beloved source for Korean music, just released its list of top songs of the last decade from 2000 – 2010. Still, it’s valuable information and I bet there are people fighting on the forums right at this moment over how their favorite artist is over or underrated on this chart. Anyway, the chart showed some recognizable trends and varieties.

Here is how Melon calculated their chart: 40% was tallied from streams on their website and the other 60% from downloads on their website for the songs released after 2005. For songs from 2000 to 2004, it was 70% record sales and 30% air time respectively.

4. Last Goodbye
8. Haru Haru
15. Lies
41. Lollipop
65. GD – Heartbreaker

[News] YG-Life Update: Info on "YG On-Air"

This was posted on YG Life mainly for Park Bom's upcoming performance but I'm posting it here for your info since BIGBANG's contents will surely be on "YG ON AIR" in the future.

“This will be a simple explanation on what “YG ON AIR” will be about. ”YG ON AIR” will consist of media content that YG Entertainment directly produces. It’s something that we’ve planned for a long time now, as we’ve always wanted to break away from the frames of broadcast programs and create fun content based on our own ideas.

The point about “YG ON AIR” is that there are no restrictions. For example, we will be broadcasting Park Bom’s first live performance at 6:05 PM. Big Bang and 2NE1 will not be keeping formality, and it will just be a comfortable live broadcast for our artists and their fans to communicate together. This will also be the fastest way for us to deliver our music video and concert making films.

We’ll be working with Korea’s biggest portal site, Naver. In the future, we’ll be co-producing season three of “2NE1 TV“, as well as stages exclusive to “YG ON AIR.”

We will also be providing subtitles through YG LIFE and YOUTUBE so that our international fans can enjoy our content with us. Because this will be done in pirate broadcast fashion, it’s difficult for us to promise a specific broadcast date. For now, we can promise a “Don’t Cry” version sung by 2NE1 next Friday.

We will be reflecting the ideas of our fans, so we ask for your support and anticipation.”
