Big Bang was voted first place in “a male idol member who will succeed most as solo.”

DCInside had a survey from 11th through 18th with “a male idol member who will succeed most as solo” as topic, and Taeyang received 2335 votes out of 10,084 (23.2%), thus he was placed as first.

Taeyang, Big Bang’s main vocalist, released his first solo album “HOT” on May and made a big hit with “Look at Only Me.” As a first in the group, he had a solo concert in July.

Second place went to Seungri from BIg Bang with 1553 votes (15.4%), and SS501’s leader Kim Hyun Joong received 1130 votes and received third place. Kim Hyung Joon from SS501, G-Dragon from Big Bang, and Kim Kyu Jong from SS501 were place after.

Earlier, DCinside had anoter survey with “a female idol member who will succeed most as solo” as a topic and Taeyeon from Girl’s Generation received first place.


logo1I was surfing around Cyworld and saw this post. I think this survey was random, but was happy to see three of our boys mentioned. hahaha. 😀
More translated articles will be coming up. I found an article where our boys were interviewed. it’s a bit long and I didn’t have time to work on it until now. Please look forward for them ^^

  1. No surprise here! 😉 hehehe

    Wow BB is ranked pretty high

    I totally think each of them can succeed at being a solo artist

    but I still like BB as a group 😀

  2. well CONGRATS to YB then for being voted first.

  3. Congrats to YoungBae! I love his solo album! But I’m kinda surprise that my baby SR got 2nd place although he’s my favorite…Because I thought DS would get 2nd or GD cuz they’re always been more “popular” especially with DS “Look At Me, Gwison”?? Well, I’m just happy that all three of our boys got up there! BigBANG is RULING!

  4. of course yb rocks!!
    lol seungri is probably excited to be ahead of his kwon leadah.

  5. congrats to my dearrrr YOUNG BAE AH~

  6. That picture of baebae is so damn HOT….<3

    Yeah I think he can succeed on his own…and also Baby Ri…and Leadah Bong. hehe.

    Wonder why Dae wasn’t voted. I think he can succeed as a solo artist…no wait he’s better at being a TV personality.

    But I think all of them can have great solo careers…But I love them as a group.

    Hope they disband after a decade. hehehe. =)

  7. I believe that TOP will most deffinately succeed solo. Why he is so underrated I really don´t know.

    But he certainly has all the qualities it takes.

    (But TY will make it of course——–all the Big Bang members will make it)

  8. wow….
    congratz to them~~
    Big Bang Fighting~~~~

    TaeYang. He serves this, b/c he didn’t win
    MKMF’s awards.
