Big Bang’s 2nd Album ‘Remember’ deemed harmful

Under the Commission of Youth Protection, Big Bang’s 2nd album ‘Remember’ has been labelled harmful for teenagers with the reason that the song ‘Strong Baby’ in the album contains inappropriate/suggestive lyrics.

From 6th March, Big Bang’s 2nd album ‘Remember’ will have the sticker ‘No Sales Allowed For Those Under 19′ labelled on the CD.

A YG Entertainment representative said, “We did not arrange for a new recording for a clean version of the supposed problematic song ‘Strong Baby’. We will just have to sell the CD with the sticker label on.”

As to whether this order will affect SeungRi’s solo activity, “This coming 1st March will be his last performance, hence we see that there shouldn’t be any hindrance to his solo activities.”

DBSK Should Have Debuted Solo!?

TVXQ In Other Artists’ Eyes

G-DRAGON (BIG BANG)
Because we’re in different genres, I’ve never seen them as a competitor. TVXQ is our respected sunbae. Their vocal skills are strong, and we’ve studied much of their performances and choreography. I’ve watched them stay determined to push themselves forward. They really are the perfect sunbaes. 

TAEYANG (BIG BANG)
TVXQ has always chased after different music styles, and their members all have very strong talents. Seeing TVXQ’s music and stage makes me feel touched, and they’re a very good influence on us. We’ve also started promoting in Japan, and compared to TVXQ sunbaes, we still have to secure a place. We all like TVXQ very much. We hope this time we’ll use the chance to become more intimate with the members.

KIM GUN MO (SINGER)
If only I was a TVXQ member!
They’re a group that’s hard to believe, with talent that’s shocking.

YG ENTERTAINMENT’S YANG HYUN SOK (During a Big Bang Interview)
Ah! They’re the only singers I admire. TVXQ is really awesome. On the Live stage, they do very well. If they weren’t good looking, they would probably be the male version of Big Mama. Some bias our country’s people have toward TVXQ is wrong.

Choi Min Ho (3 Time Gold Medalist)
If I wasn’t a fan after listening to all of TVXQ’s fourth album, I wouldn’t be able to feel Youngwoong Jaejoong’s singing effortlessly like that. Xiah Junsu has a fine voice.

KENZI (COMPOSER)
TVXQ as an idol group is kind of a waste. If they took a step forward, they could also be a group of fantastic musicians. SM doesn’t cultivate idols without talent. TVXQ is the most talented group out there right now. In the music industry, Jaejoong and Junsu are also fine and talented singers. TVXA really is an awesome group.

MNet 21 Century Artist
I can’t say TVXQ is the country’s best singer. But, being able to harmonize all five member’s voices so beautifully isn’t something many groups can do. This shows that they aren’t just an idol group, but also have the potential to be a vocal group. They truly are the image of idol groups in the 21st century.

IZM
TVXQ’s five members all have very fine potential. If they focused on this, they could become five groups. Because of financial issues, they were put into one group- this kind of saying doesn’t seem like a rumour. But the five members’ harmonization has become the reason for this kind of good feeling.

Show Music Center PD
TVXQ are the most polite singers.

Tablo (Epik High)
From the beginning TVXQ was with us. Why~~do~~ we have the same thoughts? Seeing the support TVXQ gives us, really lets me see the love between singers. I can still feel it today. Really, I’m very thankful for this in the Hip Hop world.

FT Island
TVXQ sunbaes are very modest. Although they’ve already become Asia’s top idol group, we respect the humbleness they display at all times.

Japanese MC
They’re a very polite group.

Korean MC
Last year I was able to become closer to TVXQ because we did many shows together. As we filmed, I got to know more about their real lives, and they’re a group of hard to find hardworking young adults. Children like them are reasons my mood rises.

Park Joon Hyung
There were a lot of groups in the music industry during that time that disbanded because there were conflicts between members. Today I walked in and saw TVXQ, and knew that nothing like that would happen.

Rain (Singer)
I’m very envious of TVXQ, who is able to have those teen fans anticipating them. After the performances, those teen fans will chase after their cars,and wait for them outside the office buildings. But with my fans, after performances, they say “You’ve worked hard~” I’ve also been asked, “How come you don’t have teen fans?”

Jang Ri In
Before they go on stage, they always have a very stable attitude. It’s like they really have handsome and clear souls.

Kim Dong Wan (Shinhwa)
There are many groups coming out these days, and a lot of them look really good. TVXQ stands out among these groups.

K. Will
TVXQ’s vocal talent among idol groups is really the best. Especially their charisma and leadership onstage, it’s really good.

Super Junior
We admire TVXQ, who has been able to successfully make a place for themselves in Japan.

Tony An
After they get onstage, they can bring together all of the audience’s focus. This is the kind of thing we need to bring energy to the music world. From this kind of view, there should be many groups like TVXQ appearing now. It’s not talking about coming out with many groups. More like, there should be more groups with such power to influence. Being able to receive the general audience’s support can also become a good foundation for the entertainment industry.

Jong Hyun (SHINee)
Out of all our sunbaes, TVXQ doesn’t hold back, they’ve done very well. Especially to TVXQ’s Micky Yoochun, I’m very thankful. The first time ew went onstage, he came in person to bring food over to support us, I was really thankful that time.

Hairstylist
TVXQ has the most confidence. At the time they earned a lot of fans using the teenage girls style~

Kangta
Although they’re already top stars, their personality is still very good. Compared to when I was younger, they’re really very kind.

LSM (SM Entertainment)
It’s really a waste~ The kids who could’ve gone onto their solo careers became a group in the end.

Star News
TVXQ really changed the concept of idol groups. All the members have the talent to do solo activities right away.

Singer
On the surface, they look glamorous, but in reality, they’ve all been through hardships in life. Truthfully, I really want to go over and give them big hugs.

TOP hospitalised a day after his birthday

First article:

Big Bang member TOP (21) was admitted to Seoul HeukSeokDong Central Hospital on 5th November at 1pm in the afternoon.

It was said that it was due to overwork and exhaustion and TOP has been told to rest in the hospital.

5th November is also the day that Big Bang releases their 2nd official album ‘Remember’, they have been busy practising with the preparation for their comeback right after their Japanese concert performances throughout the whole of October.

A representative from YG Entertainment said at the hospital, “The situation is not very serious, hence their comeback performance on the 8th will still take place.”

Some said it was due to suicidal thoughts..

There has been a lot of wondering by fans on TOP’s elder sister Choi Hye Yoon’s minihompy if Big Bang TOP’s admission into the hospital on 5th November was due to suicidal thoughts.

Media has also speculated about this possibility since it was discovered that TOP has taken a month’s worth of medicine on 5th November in his Seoul MaPoGoo HapJungDong home. And frantic fans have went on to TOP’s sister’s minihompy asking if TOP’s ’suicidal thoughts’ were true.

What YG Entertainment has to say…

 

A representative of YG Entertainment said, “TOP was already down with flu on 5th November, and he was working overnight until 4am in the morning doing recording. Furthermore on his birthday on the 4th, he went out drinking even though he usually cannot hold his liquor well. And after all this, he went home after after feeling fatigue and took medicine. His body couldn’t take the stress as he didn’t have the time to sleep and rest enough, and was admitted into the hospital.”

TOP’s Birthday

Big Bang member TOP (21) had to put aside the excitement of his birthday for a moment for the busy schedule of Big Bang’s comeback.

With Big Bang’s comeback with 2nd album ‘Remember’, the members have been training and practising on their singing and chereography everyday since dawn these days.

A representative of YG Entertainment said, “On the day of TOP’s birthday, 4th November, the Big Bang members were up since 2am in the morning for their CF filming and their practice for comeback. And during the CF filming, the other Big Bang members and staff presented TOP with a cake and sang birthday song for him. There was no special event for his birthday but just a nice small birthday party for TOP by the Big Bang members.

“When they had the extra time out from the filming and practising for their comeback, the members went out for a birthday celebration meal. And all the presents that TOP received from fans for his birthday have really heightened the birthday mood as well.”

Before their 7pm concert performance on 1st November, a 100-over-meter long queue of fans waiting to go into the concert hall. Also a while ago, there has been a lot of talk about the haste sold-out situation for the tickets for Big Bang’s concert this time. Also much concern was for the high cost of 800,000 KRW for their concert tickets sold illegally.

Big Bang sang about 30 songs in the 2.5 hours, including new performances of 6 songs off their first Japanes official album ‘Number 1′ released on 22nd October, and also individual performances to the delight of their fans.

For example, TaeYang did his solo performance of ‘Prayer’ and ‘Look Only At Me’, while DaeSung performed ‘Look at me, GwiSoon’. And for SeungRi, he prepared especially for this concert tour his rendition of Nakashima Mika’s ‘Eye’s Flower’ in Japanese.

Keita said, “There is this group who has been attracting a lot of media concernt and attention lately, which is Big Bang. Even though they are younger than me, also much capable, their dance performances were also enjoyable. Their performance was something to be jealous of.”

Also one member of group PinkInk (not sure if this it the correct name of the group, I just did direct translation) also wrote on her blog “After attending Big Bang’s concert, I went to listen to their other CDs. Even though I am not into Hip Hop, I like Big Bang.”

Not only this, it was also broadcasted on TokyoTV ‘RyuHa R’ programme, “We were surprised that Big Bang members sing so well.” Also on the programme, an official said, “Hip Hop, R&B, Eurobeat – from their music to dance style to their performing outfits, there is such a variety. Their performances were delightful, so are their individual members’ solo performances – they were impressive. “

DBSK as the Anti-smoking spokesman!!!

서울신문 나우뉴스]

그룹 동방신기가 금연 캠페인의 주제곡인 금연송 뮤직 비디오의 주인공으로 낙점됐다.

동방신기는 보건복지가족부가 진행하고 있는 2008 금연 공익캠페인 ‘세이 노, 세이브 라이프’(Say No, Save Life) 뮤직비디오의 마지막 주자로 나서게 됐다.

보건복지가족부는 지금까지 ‘세이노(Say-No) 금연송’ 뮤직비디오 시리즈에 국내 신세대 가수의 참여를 이끌어내며 금연에 대한 젊은 층의 자각을 일깨우는데 주력해 왔다.

금연송 뮤직비디오에는 그룹 슈퍼주니어를 첫 주자로 원더걸스, V.O.S, 에픽하이, 다비치, 서인영, 샤이니, 남규리, 빅뱅, 쿨, 신혜성, F.T 아일랜드, 카라, 2PM, 브라운아이드걸스 등이 출연해 왔으며 실제로 금연에 대한 관심도를 높이는데 성공을 거뒀다.

보건복지가족부는 “연예인을 통한 금연 캠페인은 청소년에게 간접흡연의 위험성을 알리고 메시지를 효과적으로 전달할 수 있다.”며 “이들은 청소년 층의 큰 공감대를 형성하는 데 기여한 바가 크다.”고 설명했다.

동방신기의 금연 뮤직비디오는 오는 26일 공중파TV 가요프로그램에서 방영될 예정이며 보건복지가족부가 운영하는 온라인 사이트인 ‘세이노(Say No)’ 금연캠페인 홈페이지(www.say-no.co.kr)에서도 감상할 수 있다.
