July 9, 2010 1 comment

Big Bang’s Seungri will be having surgery tonight at 9pm local time for acute appendicitis.

YG Entertainment expressed on the 9th,

“Seungri will be operated on tonight for acute appendicitis.

After recording Strong Heart on the 8th, he complained of stomach pains and then proceeded to the hospital this morning for diagnosis. The results of the tests were revealed this afternoon, and it was determined that he had acute appendicitis and not gastroenteritis.”

A representative said,

“Taking care of the body is a priority.

His treatment is a priority over his schedule.”

Kangta recently made an apperance on MBC’s Golden Fishery Knee-Drop Guru that aired on the 7th where he talked about his personal best idol group.

Kangta was asked by Kang Ho Dong on the show, “Is there a certain idol, or idol group you have been taking particular note on?” where he answered right away without any hesitation, “Definitely Big Bang (T.O.P, G-Dragon, Seungri, Tae Yang, Daesung). They do not lack one single thing. They have done amazing group activities together, and each member has continued with spectacular solo debuts so they’re definitely the best.”

Taeyang falling short of expectations?

With Taeyang’s highly anticipated recent comeback, confetti and fireworks should be flying in the air, right?

Sadly, Taeyang’s recent single I Need A Girl is not receiving as much attention and love than expected. On many music charts, this song’s ratings are unsatisfactory and doesn’t reach up-to-par in comparison to Big Bang’s past releases of Lies (2007), Last Farewell, Haru Haru (2008), Sunset Glow, etc; all of which have received sensational reactions.

When I Need A Girl was released on the 1st, the standard rating for this song was 6th place on 벅스 (Bugs!). 5th on Melon, Doshirak, and Soribada. 8th on Cyworld, and although the song managed to rise 2nd place on M! Countdown, it hasn’t placed 1st as of late. At least not yet as of now.

During this time of the year when numerous new songs have been released such as IU’s Nagging, Jo Kwon’s The Day of Confessing My Love, Narsha’s I’m In Love, Son Dambi’s Can’t U See, as well as the hot rookie debut miss A’s Bad Girl Good Girl, the situation definitely makes for a tight competition between singers in terms of rankings on the music charts.

Compared to Taeyang’s past successful solo releases of Where U At and Wedding Dress, the results for I Need A Girl seem to be disappointing. Especially since YG Entertainment spent a lot of their effort in making Taeyang’s comeback as stellar as possible. These are the reasons why the results following-up the release of I Need A Girl are so shocking to the public. Not only Taeyang, but Daesung’s past solo release of Cotton Candy didn’t receive a lot of attention than expected as well.

Taeyang Needs a Girl and wins #1 on M! Countdown

Bali Silver Jewelry

After an explosive week of back to back comeback performances for YG Entertainment’s very own Taeyang, it seems as though the media isn’t convinced in the man’s star power. But was there a need to doubt the man?

Taeyang always keeps things thoroughly professional and continues to bring out his best whenever he performs on the stage. Today’s performance of I Need a Girl and You’re My definitely proves that nothing will put him down and as he puts on quite a show for the fans. Perhaps it’s just a slow start for the artist, and maybe fans and non-fans alike will soon come to appreciate his efforts as a performer!
Having only just returned last week, Taeyang came up against MC Mong as the top 2 for this week’s M! Countdown. And in the end, it was Taeyang who came away with the win. Congratulations to Taeyang for his first win for I Need A Girl.

Btw, videonya liat di youtube ya gan.

March 20, 2010 Leave a comment

Remember the war movie, Into The Gunfire starring Kwon Sang Woo, Cha Seung Won, Kim Seung Woo and Big Bang’s T.O.P.? We have heard nothing much about it since but the following will probably do enough to whet your appetite.

A press conference was held this afternoon at the filming set where the main cast members were present with their war makeup/paint. The media was also taken through the filming set as they filmed for the movie.

Into The Gunfire is a movie that’s about 71 South Korean student soldiers fighting against hundreds of North Koreans during the deadly Korean War. The movie begun filming last November and is scheduled to hit cinemas in June 2010.

Looks epic.

Taeyang will perform a duet with Brian McKnight

Taeyang will perform a duet with Brian McKnight

Previously we reported that Big Bang’s Taeyang was going to open for Brian McKnight’s April 1st concert titled McKnight At Night at the Seoul Jamsil Stadium. Now there’s reports that Taeyang will actually perform a duet performance with Brian McKnight.

They’re scheduled to perform My Kind of Girl which was originally a song by Brian McKnight featuring Justin Timberlake. Taeyang said he loves this song and he admires Mcknight very much, so this should be a great honor for him.

Brian Mcknight’s management was looking for someone to open for his concert and Taeyang was suggested to them. Brian Mcknight personally saw one of Taeyang’s videos and was impressed.

Previously, Taeyang opened for Alicia Keys and now he’s going to perform alongside Brian McKnight on stage, which is pretty awesome. Hopefully, it’s not an April Fool’s joke. Thanks to YBftw for the tip.
