Updates on Mnet Superstar K
Vicky posted a video on Big Bang promoting Superstar K on Mnet news earlier. Here, i have posted the background of the new Mnet project and also about the GDbananas.
Superstar K is Korea’s biggest music cable channel MNet’s project to search for new musical talents (American Idol-esque). They started receiving applications over the phone early April this year. Since Mr. YG of YG Entertainment is one of the celebrity judges, Big Bang is helping the promotion – not that the project really needs any more promoting. I hear that they already got hundreds of thousands of applications submitted. There was also a news report that Paul Potts has been designated as a judge for the Busan regional auditions. To participate, you need to call in and sing the first verse of a song of your choice in its entirely.
About the bananas: “Bananamanba (Look Only at Bananas)” is the name of a banana-flavored ice candy product sold widely in Korea. GD actually says “Bananamanba” at 2:57 right after YB finishes singing Look Only at Me. He obviously got those bananas ready as a prop to use them at the end of YB’s singing lol. GD (as well as the other guys) is so supportive of YB it’s often touching…
