Big Bang leaves a Bang in Manila

As a fan, I have always wished to see Big Bang perform live in my home country. I am a Big Bang fan for the good part of my KPOP fandom. Big Bang was actually one the groups that got me hooked into KPOP. For years, I have wished for them to hold a concert in my country and after two successful tours without them coming here, they finally did last October 24. Big Bang Alive Tour 2012 was held at the Mall of Asia Arena in a sold out concert that left fans talking about it for years to come.

World Class Act

Big Bang; composed of G-Dragon, Taeyang, Seungri, T.O.P, and Daesung, is a KPOP group formed in 2006 by YG Entertainment. The group is known for their urban originated music and fashion style. Big Bang embarked on their first world tour this year with their Alive Tour visiting twenty five cities in sixteen countries. At the 2011 MTV Europe Music Awards, Big Bang won the inaugural “Best Worldwide Act”  in the Asia and the Pacific Region besting famous acts such as Gotye and Sia.

Big Bang in Manila

Although October 24 fell on a weekday, fans still filled the Mall of Asia arena in one of the most awaited KPOP act to perform in the country. The arena was jam packed and the fans truly prepared for the concert with some even coming with their best Big Bang fashion style. Glow stick is a must so fans prepared in advanced to buy the signature crown lightsticks worth almost 2,000 pesos. Nonetheless, fans on the budget get to buy yellow lightsticks as cheap as 200 pesos and Samsung gave away Blue lightsticks for free. So there’s a guarantee that anyone who comes in the concert will be a part of it somehow someway.

The concert was sponsored by Samsung mobile and two led screens were placed for the fans to enjoy the concert more. Big Bang opened the concert in a futuristic concept coming out of pods. They performed their famous songs from beginning with “Blue” and ending with “Fantastic Baby”. The concert lasted for an incredible two hours. Old fans would enjoy all of their old songs such as “How Gee”, “Number 1”, “Lies”, and “Haru Haru”.

Unforgettable Experience

If you’re a fan, this concert would be unforgettable no doubt. If you’re fairly new, you’re bound to get hooked for a long time. Big Bang is charismatic as they’ve been ever before. They can bring the house down like no other. Not every group can perform for two straight hours without leaving the crowd dull. Big Bang got the crowd crazy from the get-go and left the arena still leaving the fans in awe. Nonetheless, Big Bang promised to comeback in the country and the fans surely will anticipate their return.

BIG BANG IS SO BACK!

I can’t explain the excitement I have right now. Big Bang is finally back!

Watch their Big Show 2011 now! + the MV after

THE MV For TONIGHT!

OH MY GOD. I missed big bang a lot. I can’t believe they are really back. Sorry for such short post. Hope you enjoy

Co-ed all girl subgroup makes their debut

Co-ed’s new female sub unit really live up to its name. 5dolls made their debut yesterday on MNET’s M Countdown. I was really impressed on how they performed on stage. (However, I was kind of disappointed how they debuted a week before Big Bang’s big comeback. I mean come on it’s not reasonable to have comebacks or debut this week.)

Here’s their debut stage from last night

Another impressive girl in my opinion. Another awesome thing about them is the PV for their songs “Lip Stain” and “I mean you”

The two PV’s are inter related if you haven’t got that yet.

A little dose of KPOP

2 More Days before this site’s anniversary

So, I realized that I forgot to post GD and TOP’s comeback song Don’t Go Home which they debuted last week on Inkigayo. Here’s this week’s performance of the song.

This is my current favorite song. It has that old school new school kick into it. I’m a guy and I’m not afraid to say that GD is absolutely gorgeous.

As a bonus for all those long hiatus this site had. Here’s a dose of Seungri’s What Can I do which is my second favorite song today.

Top KPOP Songs of 2010

So as the new year begins, here is my top 16KPOP songs for the year of 2010. 

1. Hello Shinee

2. Beautiful Beast

3. I’ll be There Taeyang

4. High High GD and Top

5. Good Day IU

6. Lucifer Shinee

7. I need a girl Taeyang

8. Go Away 2NE1

9. Hoot SNSD

10. No Other Super Junior

11. I did Wrong 2AM

12. Lupin Kara

13. Oh SNSD

14. Run Devil Run SNSD

15. Just a Feeling Taeyang

16. Love Ya SS501

As you could see, Shinee is at the top of my 2010 rankings for favorite song. Actually they were also my favorite group for 2010. So you might wonder why Hello is over every other songs that sold better than the repackaged album. Well first the song is something that you won’t get tired of listening to. I remember having this song on my Ipod since October and I didn’t grew tired of this song until now. Second is that it’s vintage Shinee. Yes, Shinee isn’t that old to be called vintage. But in their last two singles before Hello (Lucifer and Ring Ding Dong) they used a much darker theme than the old ones. Another thing that made me like Hello was the vocals. I mean this one shows how they’re really a great group. Jonghyun’s vocal range is so high.

Here is their first performance of the song  live at Music Bank.

So beautiful is at 2. Why? Because the song is so addicting. Well I kinda got over with Beautiful for about a few days now (because of IU’s Good day). However, the song is still fun. What not to like about this. It’s so different than Beast’s old song. They look much cute here.

Taeyang’s I’ll be There ranks at 3. Okay to be honest 1-3 doesn’t have that much difference at all. I love those 3 songs equally I guess. Well anyways Taeyang’s I’ll be There is a superb song for a lot of reasons. One thing I found is the emotion of the song. Yes like most of Taeyang’s song it’s about a particular girl that he loves. The choreography is another awesome thing about this. The song have a very very difficult choreography as I could see. Despite all of that, Taeyang can still hit those high notes.

So from 4-16 they’re actually random. They can vary depending on my mood. However, they’re still the songs that I really really liked for the whole 2010. If you have objections with that then I suggest you go to another blog site.
