Become VIP

Hai hai !!

Aku suka sama Big Bang belum lama ini. Pertamanya aku suka TVXQ, mereka yang ngebuka jalanku untuk mengenal K-Pop. Terus aku suka sama SHINEE. Tapi karena konsep mereka lama-lama berubah, aku udah ngerasa nggak sreg lagi sama mereka. Waktu aku lagi suka SHINEE, sepupuku suka BigBang, mereka lagi main ke rumahku, terus mereka bilang, “Ka, buka Big Bang deh, Haru-Haru”. Pas kita buka Mv-nya. Aku suka lagunya dan Mv-nya. Mungkin karena dulunya aku suka emo kali ya?? Nah, mulai dari situ, aku suka Big Bang. Download lagu-lagu dan Mv2nya. Join di forum dan grup FB. Sampai akhirnya aku bertemu sama seorang VIP dari Hongkong. Namanya Wai Fong Leung. Dia nge-add Fbku, trus kita wall-wall  an. Dan ternyata, dia itu usianya mungkin udah sama kayak mamaku! Wah.. Aku lumayan kaget pas tau ini. Mulai saat itu, aku panggil dia ajumma. “Crazy Ajumma Fong” haha…

Kita sering sharing dan cerita2, bukan Cuma soal Big Bang, tapi masalah sehari2 juga. Sampai akhirnya aku dikenalin ajumma sama Angeline dan Rachel. Mulai dari situ, kita mulai saling kirim message, cerita2 apa yang terjadi dalam kehidupan kita yang pelru dibagi. Kita deket banget, udah kayak keluarga. Semua masalah diceritain, bahkan yang orang lain pun disekitar kita gak ada yang tau. Kebersamaan kita makin akrab karena ajumma sempet ngirimin hadiah atau oleh-oleh dari Thailand. Ajumma suka banget traveling, tempat favoritnya Thailand. Dia udah ke Thailand 9 kali ! Kalo Angeline, she’s my twin. Tanggal lahir kita sama persis, sekarang dia udah kerja. Dia berencana mau nerusin kuliah tahun ini. Rachel dia juga lagi kuliah, dan tahun ini adalah tahun terakhirnya. Angeline dan Rachel dari Malaysia. Aku juga sempet ngirim hadiah pas ulang tahun ajumma, sebuah editan foto pake photoshop. Trus ajumma langsung upload foto dia disebelah foto itu. Wah.. Senengnya ajumma bisa nerima hadiah itu.

Karena aku join di forum internasional Big Bang, aku jadi banyak belajar dan ngelatih kemampuan Bhasa Inggrisku. Aku juga banyak belajar tentang gimana caranya morum, mulai dari cara bikin account, ngepost, bikin avatar, banner, dll. Sampe akhirnya aku tertarik sama photoshop dan pengen mengembangkannya labih jauh lagi, api belum ada kesempatan. Selama ini aku Cuma belajar dari tutorial2 yang ada di forum atau dari internet aja. Aku juga apply buat jadi staff newsletter di forum itu. Tambah terlatih lagi deh kemampuan bahasa inggrisku. Selain itu aku juga jadi mulai ngegunain blog. Sebenernya sih, udah lama aku pengen bikin blog, tapi waktu itu gagal, gak ngerti gimana daftarnya. Hehe.. Aku mulai bikin artikel dan memuat tulisanku sendiri. Terus aku coba lagi jadi DJ atau announcer. Aku jadi belajar bikin radio online dan belajar gimana caranya jadi penyiar radio yang baik. Orang2 di forum itu sangat welcome, mereka support aku banget pas pertama kali aku siaran. Itu siaranku yang pertama dan itu juga siaranku buat seleksi sebagai DJ di forum itu. Itu pertama kalinya aku bener2 ngerasain gimana rasanya di support sama orang2. walauoun kits cums komunikasi lewat chat di forum itu, tapi support mereka bisa sampae ke aku. Bener2 ngerasa kayak dapet keluarga baru lagi.

Nah, itulah sekilas pengalamanku tentang K-pop. Khususnya BigBang. Dengan K-pop membuka duniaku lebih luas.

BigBang history

From the very start, Big Bang has an inert talent and before anyone could see these talents we, VIPs, all know about their hard works they did from being just an ordinary person up to becoming a STAR. I know some of you are wondering how Big Bang was formed, right? The members were selected to a reality survival program. Before the group’s debut, several members already had exposure in the entertainment industry. They were trained and they had a documentary called “BIG BANG DOCUMENTARY” in order to know how they progress. They came out in the intense and powerful competition proving that they are true professional artist. Leader G-Dragon and lead vocalist Taeyang, signed with YG Entertainment since they were both thirteen years old, were known as GD and YB. T.O.P was an underground rapper under the stage name T.E.M.P.O. BigBang made their debut at the Gymnastics Arena in Seoul Olympic Park during the YG Family concert. It means BigBang was made their masterpiece for 4 years and they produce many albums, DVDs and singles. So, now I want to make a short form review of their albums, from their debut until now, they produced about 40 albums. It’s including some solo albums of the member.

And sold 30,000 copies by the end of the year. The group also began their Want You tour, visiting five cities: Incheon, Daegu, Changwon, Jeonju and Busan.

One year after their debut, around 16th August 2007, they released mini album “Always” and stand once again in front of the crowd. G-dragon, TOP and the other members of Big Bang along with 1TYM’s Teddy, Brave Brothers, Perry and even to YG Entertainment’s CEO Yang Hyun Seok, all complete member of YG Entertainment that seemed to matured a lot lately joined in this project, and finally the completed “Always” album is released in mini album form and marked several changes for the group. Though previously already writing and composing, the group has decided to take more control over their music. The mini-album also saw the introduction of electronic music for Big Bang. To the public, thing that somewhat called by ‘mini album’ is usually contained around 2 or 3 songs, then the regular album usually includes around 10 songs or more, and as the regular album with average song amounts by 5 or 7 songs, Big Bang’s [Always] album contains 6 songs that is Intro [우린 빅뱅], 거짓말, 없는 번호, 아무렇지 않은 척 (Feat. 지은) , Oh Ma Baby, and Always. G-Dragon composed and wrote most of the tracks included in their first mini album release including the title hit single “Lies” that supposed to be G-dragon’s solo at first is changed into Big Bang’s song and [Always]’s title song, and beside this title song the other 6 songs in total that had been included in the album, each of them clearly have characters of European style pop and R&B ballad; reviving melodies with ‘seasoned’ hip-hop. All the Producers that had been working on this album had devoted their hearts and minds to make the songs selections, and they made the outstanding and various Big Bang’s members’ styles another upgrade. Big Bang’s new album [Always] will be released on the next August 17th nationwide, then on August 19th Big Bang will start their showcase titled “2007 Big Bang Mini Album [Always]”.

On the half year of 2007 Big Bang make a big issue in the world of music with “Lies”. Before the lingering sounds get carried away they released their second mini album titled “Hot Issue” and made a strong explosion. In this second mini album, G-Dragon’s flourishing will to write seems on it’s peak, and on this album out from 6 songs he composed 5 of it, and not only that he’s also trusted to write and produced it. Just in one listen, you can hear that the title song “Last Farewell” (마지막 인사), as the song that G-Dragon had wrote and composed, has this strong beat of trans hip hop rhythm and on top of that you can hear G-dragon’s peculiar refreshing melody, and the lyrics is also blended very well into the song. G-dragon’s and TOP’s powerful rap along with Taeyang, Daesung, and Seungri’s vocal can make you feel the explosive energy from the song. This song was also fairly successful, topped various charts, including the Juke-On’s chart for eight consecutive weeks. It also won the “Song of the Month Digital Music Award” from Cyworld. In [Hot Issue] they got other songs beside the mega hit song “Last Farewell”. 바보 (Fool) is also a title song that had become a subject of discussion along with “Last Farewell”. Another song in this mini album are intro [Hot Issue] and But I Love You (Sampling by Rhu of Redd Holt Unlimited). On top of that, in the [Hot Issue], Stony Skunk’s S-Kush and G-Dragon collaboration in G-Dragon’s solo song, slow-medium tempo song “I Don’t Understand” and the other songs one by one are showing up their qualities. The catchiest song is the sampling of a legendary song from Seo Taiji and Boys titled Crazy Dog (You, in the fantasy). The memorable “You, in the fantasy” opening part is processed into Big Bang’s style, overcoming the 15 years of generation difference, it’s showing a big appeal not only to the fans of Big Bang’s songs, but also to the fans of Seo Taiji and Boys. And in the center of that, there’s the well-accepted young singer-song writer, Big Bang’s leader G-Dragon. Since included in the first single album, singer-song writer G-dragon showing some possibilities and after that he participated actively in composing and writing all of Big Bang’s albums. After only debuted for one year, he can make a hit song such as “Lies”, his reputation as a composer is arising and his name showing up to the surface right away. With Shibuya Kei style opening “Lies”, as the well produced song that had received explosive response in the world of music, is using piano as the base and become better with high class arranging. After “Lies” that come in winter this time Big Bang once again rock the music stage with their second mini album [Hot Issue] that’s going to come on 23rd November.

Near the end of 2007, it was reported that members of the band were hospitalized from over performing and exhaustion, halting their promotional activities. Reports were later released that Big Bang’s albums and singles were in high demand, causing the record company to reprint and repackage them for re-release. Riding on the success of their mini album, the group collected numerous awards towards the end of the year, including “Best Male Group” and “Song Of The Year” from the 2007 M.net/KM Music Festival. They received the “Artist of the Year” award from the 17th Seoul Music Awards.

As 2007 came to close, Big Bang ventured overseas to Japan. Right after the New Year, on January 4th 2008 Big Bang released their first mini album “For The World” and they also revealed it nationally in Korea. In [For The World] there’s a new songs like “How Gee” and among the songs like “Lies”, “The Fool’s Only Tears”, “Fool”, “La La La”, and “Always” they picked out 7 songs that represent Big Bang, there’s 8 songs in total and one full-length song in English. The new song “How Gee” is a sampling from the opening part of Black Machine’s club song {How Gee}, Big Bang made that into a new Big Bang-styled Hip-Hop song with a catchy repeated saxophone sound. The half part of the song feels so alive and Big Bang’s refreshing rap from rappers G-Dragon and TOP along with Taeyang, Daesung, Seungri’s various vocals mixed really well and gives a new feel to this song. They’re showing off, not only in Japan but also in the UK and USA music markets, their flawless quality. Big Bang’s Japan English album is walking a different path from the earlier debuted Korean singers there. Usually when entering Japan, the Korean singers released their album in Japanese, but Big Bang’s first debut album there is released in English and makes a big new attempt. With this Big Bang is not introduced as another Hallyu Singer, but as a foreign musician. Big Bang that is really remarkable at Korea is doing their underground debut that differentiates them from the other singers. Despite the fact that they got connections to Japan’s famous recording labels, Big Bang choose to do underground debut and their reason is  instead of showing their outer features, they would like to do a long term plans for spreading their music.

Just like their previous albums, full-length English recording their Japanese album has a quality that might be possible to be sent straight to USA, a quality to be proud at, and it’s a record to proof that BIGBANG’s stage would definitely never stop in Asia.

First, they distributed the song to offline music stores. But since offline music stores has limits and respond for “Stylish (The FILA)” is pretty good, they’ve released it on online music stores so many people could hear the song. G-Dragon did the lyrics while Perry did composing and producing for this song, polished sounds and “BigBang’s style” feel is come out pretty well in this Hip-Hop styled song. Generally this commercial song, even when it sung on the stage, has an amazing popularity and it’s something to be proud of. And once again we have to chance to see and make sure of BigBang’s charm and talents.

After “Look at Me, Gwisoon” BIGBANG’s Daesung released a new trot song called “Big Hit!” online, on 2009 January. Daesung’s “Look at Me, Gwisoon” that had been released on the other day shows a skillful trot singing with fun stage manner that can attract not only the young generation, but the coloring and the bell sounds made this song popular also among the old generation. “Big Hit” has a meaning ‘in 2009 let’s be a big hit’ for the citizen who had suffered from economy crisis, it also can be seen as ‘various hope’. “Big Hit” is made by the same person that created “Look At Me, Gwisoon”, G-Dragon. He hoped that ‘this song is can be one trot song that the younger generation can enjoy”.

They reunited again to collaborate with 2NE1 for the song “Lollipop”. This song was use to promote a cell phone and the song made at #1 position in the charts.

In August 2009, they had released the official major debut single “My Heaven”, on January.  “My Heaven” is Japanese translation in their “Stand Up” album that made it to 2nd place on Oricon Daily Chart with over 12,000 copies being sold on the first day and #3 positions in the Oricon Charts. Last year they released a mini album through a Japanese Indie Label and received ceaseless love since then, they have a firm determination for one year, and after that Universal Music who already keep an eye for them do a lighting attack and make a contract with them, and after that for the sake of entering the major music market they’ve released a first major solo album.

BIGBANG who had entered with such a successful major debut in Japan finally back with their second single “Gara Gara Go!” and sold over 30,000. Big Bang then finished recording the album by the end of July. BIGBANG who saw that successful beginning does hope that this time they can make “Gara Gara Go” counted again in Japan. If on the first single “My Heaven” BIGBANG shows lyrical feelings, this time with “Gara Gara Go” they show funky and natural-free spirited charm very well. “Gara Gara Go” which in English spoken as “Gotta Gotta Go” is written in Japanese Katakana character and it reflects “forget about everything and let’s have fun throughout the night”. The lyrics are also have such a bright meaning, and it f it’s well with summer, it’s a fresh song that has make it way to high position in music charts not only in Japan but also in Korea. BIGBANG who had made “Gara Gara Go” into English and Japanese version, made another special version of it for their Korean fans, which in the refrain part of the song they changed the lyrics into Korean. So there’s each one song in Korean, English and along with that they made that song into a unique song. In addition, “Gara Gara Go” includes TOP and G-Dragon fierce rapping in a fresh song called “Top of the World”. “Gara Gara Go” charted #5 and the album itself reached the #3 position in charts.

They released G-Dragon’s first solo album, “Heartbreaker vol.1” on August 18th 2009. People’s attention for G-Dragon’s solo album perhaps already started and getting hotter since it’s on the planning stage. G-Dragon also let go of the concept of an Idol because he’s BIGBANG’s leader who already created nation’s greatest hit songs such as “Lies” “Last Farewell” Day by Day” and even “Sunset Glow”. For addition, to be called “BIGBANG’s style”, his style is also becoming the center of the issue everywhere he goes, and for this album not only popular persons but fashionistas are also got a big expectation. His solo album’s title song called “Heartbreaker and it starts with G-Dragon’s strong narration, and until one point it fascinates your ears till the satisfaction point and leaves you with a strong impression. In addition songs like “A Boy” and “Butterfly” that have contrast styles between each other are enough to make you, who wait for G-Dragon’s solo album, flutter in excitement.

Still in 2009 August, BigBang released BIGBANG vol.1 in Japan. BIGBANG who had received many loves in Japan with their Japan major single debut “My Heaven” then “Gara Gara Go” had released their first Japan album titled BIGBANG on August 19th 2009. On this June BIGBANG had sweep away Japan’s major music market with their debut single and second single continuation release, on the first week they’ve made it to Oricon Top 5 chart and they had become the most talked about topic. It’s such an unbelievable condition since they’re a rookie singer. And as a follow up BIGBANG came up as the winner for the Best Album with “Asia Best 2006-2009” and with their first Japan album “BIGBANG” both at the same time, and that make them feel very strongly determined for the next activity in Japan. In this Japan album, BIGBANG brought up fresh bigbang’s songs such like “My Heaven” “Gara Gara Go!” and the other songs like “Bringing You Love” “Follow Me” “Love Club” etc.

Last time Taeyang leaved a deep impression to the music critics and the public with his songs like “Only Look At Me” and “Prayer” and the other songs that featured in his first solo mini album, [HOT]. Taeyang surpasses the stereotype of a popular idol group lead singer and along with his musicality he has been reborn into a musician image which people already approved to.
In fact, last year Taeyang had swept away various kind of music charts and broadcast charts, and the critics gave him ‘the most popular music’ award, and after that in his first solo concert he held a concert that only adults can enter, with those he surpasses boundaries for an idol singer and, being interactive with present generation, he also did some daring attempt.

Today, on “Where U At” MV which has been released on the 15th we can see Taeyang’s new coreography and dance style that has been rumored far before today. Foreign dancers that contribute in that MV also said, “Compared to any other dancers I’ve ever seen until now, Taeyang is surely above them. For me it’s nearly impossible that a singer that supposed to do singing have dance skills like that,” and he also said that he (Taeyang) didn’t hold onto the praises he almost get to hear everyday.
Just like last year hits, start from, Taeyang’s “Only Look At Me” and “Prayer”, then “Lollipop”, and also 2NE1’s “Fire” and even “I Don’t Care”, the person who creates sensation with every songs he made, Teddy, is also set up to work with Taeyang in “Where U At”. Once again we can see Taeyang’s fantastic rhythm and gather expectations for it.
The point about 22 years old Taeyang who, until now, still hasn’t got any girlfriend is considered into the lyrics of “Where U At”. It tells about his (Taeyang) future partner that might be live somewhere in this world and while imagining place where her might be Taeyang is longing for her, real circumstances like this are also the point of what the song is all about and it’s absolutely a touching song.
