Big Bang’s Self-Development Book Ranks #1


Top idol group Big Bang’s self-help book “Shouting to the World” has beat out other authors to top the nation’s bestseller list.

The book outlines how each member ― G-Dragon, T.O.P., Victory, Dae-sung and Tae-yang ― overcame difficulties to live up to his dream of becoming a successful musician. Pre-orders of the book before its official publication date of Jan. 28 also surpassed those of other books.

More celebrities have been publishing books recently, but Big Bang is among the first to top the bestseller list.

Shin Kyung-sook’s novel “Take Care of My Mom” ranked second after remaining on the top spot for six weeks straight. Author Kong Ji-young’s essay followed in third place.

“Dewey,” a heart-warming nonfiction story about a stray cat that lived in a small public library, moved up to eighth place, while Malcolm Gladwell’s “Outliers” ranked 16th.
