01. JIYONG’s SOLO DEBUT STAGE!
i must say, he totally rocked it. he put a lot of thought into it. the staging, choreo, lighting, etc. even his live track was fixed to enhance the perf. it was perfect. INKI is lucky to have him there first. we had our 1st BBCHAT session in a long time, & it was a success! everyone who participated had lots of fun in my opinion. i’ll try to do more, & i’ll tweet out the times & stuff. thanks for tuning in!
– if you can’t get into the chat, that’s b/c you are not a member of the chat. wait for an admin (orange) to be on & PM them to make you a member. don’t forget to ALWAYS FOLLOW THE RULES. it’s important to keep order in there. & hopefully we’ll make this an on-going thing.

did u just die?! they get more realistic as they come out. unfortunately, it’s a YG e-shop product, & i think when u purchase it, you get to download it or w/e & print it out yourself. & that doesn’t make me happy much, cuz making those things are SUPER HARD & u need special paper to get the folding & stuff right. sigh.

MC Mong’s Kid Rapper B.I, “I Met G-Dragon, The Person I Want To Look Like” (click for more)
Kid rapper B.I (real name Kim Han Bin) revealed a picture of himself with G-Dragon.
On August 30th at 8:04 pm, B.I uploaded a picture titled ‘With G-Dragon Hyung’ on his Cyworld Minihompy. He and G-Dragon both held ‘V-signs’ (peace signs) in the picture.
In his first year in Junior High, B.I is the kid rapper promoting alongside MC Mong with the song ‘Indian Boy’. B.I is grabbing a lot of attention for his adorable appearance and his mature rapping.
On August 7th on KBS 2TV’s ‘Yoo Heeyeol’s Sketchbook’, B.I expressed, “I want my lifestyle to be like Mong hyung’s and my face to look like G-Dragon’s”.
On that same day, MC Mong said, “When I look at B.I, I feel like I’m looking at the young G-Dragon.”
G-Dragon’s Solo Debut on ‘Inkigayo’, Amazing Viewers’ Rating
SBS’s ‘Inkigayo’, where Big Bang’s G-Dragon debuted as a solo artist, exploded with an amazing viewer’s rating.
On August 30th, G-Dragon performed his two title songs,‘Heartbreaker’ and ‘Breathe’, on his solo debut stage. During his performance, the viewer’s rating rocketed to nearly 17% (according to TNS Media Korea).
Not only that, but on that same day, ‘Inkigayo’s’ average viewer’s rating was recorded as 14.1% (according to TNS Media Korea). In comparison with the previous recording of ‘Inkigayo’s’ ratings on August 16th (11.3%), G-Dragon’s solo debut raised the viewer’s rating by a prodigious 2.8 points. This overall effect can only be explained as something crazy.
[On the 23rd, ‘Inkigayo’ was canceled due to the former president’s, Kim Dae Joong, death.]
On his own birthday (last 18th of August), G-Dragon released his first solo album and showed an enormous power. Although he was enwrapped in plagiarism rumors, in an instant, he was #1 on the CD sales. Undoubtedly, his title song, ‘Heartbreaker’ swept the #1 spot on both the online music charts and mobile charts.
Especially, on August 28th, G-Dragon won 1st place on KBS’s ‘Music Bank’ even before he made his debut stage. This surprised the PDs and staff alike.
On a side note, G-Dragon will showcase more superb solo stages on SBS’s ‘Kim Jung Eun’s Chocolate’ on the 2nd and on KBS’s ‘Music Bank’ on the 4th.
