Well, hello there, I’m just gonna post some today news about BIGBANG 😉
1.BIGBANG + KARA for Music Bank Christmas Special ?
Big Bang is scheduled to perform a Special Stage performance with KARA on December 26th’s Music Bank Christmas Special. They are scheduled to perform “Pretty Girl” , “Sunset Glow” , and some Christmas Carols together.
Well, I personally was expecting more of a Wonderbang, but KaraBANG is sort of cute too, eh~ I can’t imagine our boys shaking their booties like some pretty girls, and the idea of them singing sunset glow is just, I don’t have any visions of that, LMAO! There will be a lot of nose bleeding for me watching the performance, can’t wait! 😄
2.BIGBANG Voted For Best Singers

3.BIGBANG’s Absence at Golden Disk 2008
Fans were puzzled and doubtful about 2008 ‘Golden Disk Award’, which was said to be based on album sales, that artistes Big Bang and Seo Taiji who achieved the 2nd and 3rd highest album sales for the year did get an awards.
Here’s explanation why…
The BonSang winners for 2008 Golden Disk Award that took place on 10th December were Dong Bang Shin Ki, Rain, SG Wannabe, Kim Dong Ryul, ShinHwa and Brown Eyes.
Big Bang’s 3rd minialbum ‘Stand Up’ were said to have sold over 149,000 copies as recorded on HanTeo (album sales tabulation site). And also for their 2nd official album ‘Remember’, it has recorded a total of 112,000 copies sold. So all in all, in this year, Big Bang had brought in about 260,000 over album sales.
It has been revealed that the judging criteria for the GDA BonSang award has 60% based on album sales from December last year to November this year, 20% based on popularity votes and 20% on the committee’s evaluation.
And Big Bang’s popularity vote was at #3 after Dong Bang Shin Ki and Son Ho Young as of 5th December.
But still, Big Bang was not awarded any award for GDA. Why is it so?
It has been revealed on Golden Disk Award homepage that “Winners will not be awarded their awards if they are absent for the award ceremony.” The sponsorships to GDA has made it clear that no matter the artiste’s popularity and album sales, if they are not present for the award ceremony, they will not receive their award.
So with this, it was not true that ‘Big Bang cannot receive the BonSang’ but rather ‘Big Bang did not receive the BonSang’. Because Big Bang was not present for the award ceremony.
Big Bang’s company YG Entertainment was not considered on good terms with the Golden Disk Award committee. And that’s the reason why Big Bang did not attend the ceremony.
It is the same case for singer Seo Taiji. He sold more than 137,000 copies for his 8th album first single ‘Atomos Part Moai’. But he was not present for the award ceremony.
There has been many cases like these in the past where stars who were present at the award ceremony were mostly those who would receive an award. Even though there are many deserving stars for the nomination, because they did not fulfil their ‘loyalty’ to the award by not attending the award ceremony, they did not receive the award.
The award ceremonies has taken the trend of ‘attended stars = winner stars’.
Hopefully with this, fans from different artistes group will understand the situation and bring an end to any animosity.
Peace out. ^^
Well, thanks a bunch for Sookyeong-ssi for the clear explanation =) Now we know in our hearts, they are still our number 1, they’re still our WINNERS, who needs any awards like that, right? =P
4.BIG SHOW sold out in 5 MINUTES for Second Window Sales
Big Bang’s ‘Big Show’ 2nd window for tickets reservation sales has once been sold out in 5 minutes.
The 1st window took place on 5th December for 31st January’s concert performance and was sold out in 10 minutes. The 2nd window for reservation sales took place on 9th December for 1st February’s concert performance and about 13,ooo tickets were sold with 180,000 people connected to GMarket’s website during the sales of the ticket.
A YG representative said that with such a big-scale concert for 40,000 being held next year over 3 concert performances, at the same time it may be the only concert from Big Bang for 2009, it is predicted that response for tickets reservation sales will be overwhelming for the 3rd window sales.
Once again, always make us PROUD, right~

6.Trot Singer Seol Woon Do Envies DaeSung~
Trot singer Seol Woon Do said on ‘Shin Dong Yeop and Shin Bong Seon’s Champagne’ set to air on 13th December that he is a passionate fan of Big Bang group member DaeSung.
“I may not know other new generation singers, but I know Big Bang well.” He said, having great interest over member DaeSung.
“My 2nd son who is studying in America now, resembles DaeSung alot. And his nickname is also DaeSung. So I have a liking for DaeSung, who may not even know me. Especially that smile, they really look alike.”

7.Eun Ji Won Says : “Whenever I See BIGBANG…”
On Cable channel On Style’s “My Style Road,” MC Park Ji Yoon asked Eun Ji Won, “if he had to choose one career path, would it have been idol group Sechskies, his solo hip-hop career, or his comedic reputation as Eun Cho-ding (a middle schooler).”
And he ANSWERED;
“Whenever I see Big Bang, it rere to savor every moment of it, plus, I think I could do a lot better.”minds me of the past and makes me want to go back to those days. I was too young at the time, so I wasn’t really able to enjoy it. If I could go back now, I’d make sure to savor every moment of it, plus, I think I could do a lot better.”
Another artist envies BIGBANG~ It’s so captivating how other sunbaes actually envy our boys, isn’t it! x)) I’m happy for them XDD
And for last but absolutely not least.
