Big Bang to focus on solo activities after their world tour ends

121223_bigbang_FUKUOKA_pr-600x399

After Big Bang finishes their world tour, the members will be shifting their focus to promoting solo activities.

The five members will be finishing up their world tour in Seoul from the 25th to the 27th. After the finale, the members will be promoting under their own individual names and not under the name of Big Bang.

G-Dragon will be going on a solo world tour, and will even be having a 3-dome tour in Japan for the first time as a Korean solo artist. He is also planning to release a new song within the first half of the year.
T.O.P has been filming for his movie ‘Alumni‘, and will continue to work on the movie for a bit more. He previously stated, “It’s currently 90% finished.” Fans are also looking forward to see him act again in dramas as well this year.

Taeyang and Daesung are currently working on their own solo albums. Daesung’s Japanese solo album, ‘D’scover‘, is set for release at the end of February, and he is planning his solo concert as well.

Seungri has also been cast in a drama on NipponTV. Even though he has constantly been promoting in Japan, this year Seungri is planning to promote in Korea as well.

Are you looking for a year filled with Big Bang?

Meanwhile 2NE1 ...

I want another GD album, GTOP album, and a Korean album for Daesung. I will miss them as 5 *pout*
markthatcoin 15th-Jan-2013 10:18 pm (UTC)
GD&TOP or bust!!!!!!!!!
hershelwalker 15th-Jan-2013 10:21 pm (UTC)
I need 2 know more about TOP's plans
markthatcoin 15th-Jan-2013 10:35 pm (UTC)
TOP belongs in a slapsticky romcom imo. he is hilarious on variety when he's with all the other boys.
hellodee16 15th-Jan-2013 10:22 pm (UTC)
idk how to feel about Dae's Japanese solo. I don't wanna see him flop tbh. ;_;
mizzyoung 15th-Jan-2013 10:48 pm (UTC)
ugh same ;~; he deserves to succeed because he's so talented
reelrecnizereel 15th-Jan-2013 10:27 pm (UTC)
I am hype for new Taeyang material & promos and interviews tbh!! I'd like to know what has been going on in that boys head as of lately .
45s 15th-Jan-2013 10:48 pm (UTC)
2ne1 still not doing shit. Wtf
vvipforseungri 15th-Jan-2013 10:49 pm (UTC)
Kinda still glad that they are allowed to all promote as soloists, rather than just the most popular member. That way I don't miss them as much...

Not happy though about the lack of deets on Seungri. I want a JPN solo album that he composes and writes and stuff. I am afraid for YB's solo because Solar was perfect save for You're My and if it's anything like his current style I'm not going to like it much :/ Want a GTOP album and more Dae!variety pls

(studiously ignoring the rest of YG that has yet to make a comeback/debut... VIPs are spoiled lbr)
mizzyoung 15th-Jan-2013 10:51 pm (UTC)
VIPs is where the money's at
mizzyoung 15th-Jan-2013 10:49 pm (UTC)
Here for Dae's solo work. And I hope and pray his Japanese promotions are a success because that can catapult his Korean album \o/

2ne1 tho... What is going on?
fantaesticbaby 15th-Jan-2013 10:50 pm (UTC)
I want a GTOP album tbh.

Meanwhile YG seems to have forgotten that 2NE1 exist.
unicornios 15th-Jan-2013 10:53 pm (UTC)
MY BABIES!!!

I need to know more about TOP's activities though. Is he going to spend the whole year working on Alumni? It's already taking too long.
markthatcoin 15th-Jan-2013 10:59 pm (UTC)
i think Alumni's nearly finished filming, and i imagine editing/premiere/promo will last a few months. that gives him more than enough time to do a drama and some GDTOP
frantastic 15th-Jan-2013 11:02 pm (UTC)
seungri album plz&ty
hurtmybones 15th-Jan-2013 11:06 pm (UTC)
lol @ how taeyang's album was supposed to come out in november
ashiva 15th-Jan-2013 11:16 pm (UTC)
He was still recording new stuff in US in November 19th, so no wonder things got postponed.

I want SeungRi to just focus on Japan 'cause if he works hard there I feel like he can create a long lasting place for himself in Japanese showbiz. Plus maybe Korea will start liking and respecting him more if he becomes popular in Japan?

And I'm truly looking forward to Taeyang's next album as based on his covers and music he has been listening as well as people he has worked with, it's gonna be something Frank Ocean and Miguel influenced stuff.

i love Seungri but this is screaming UKISS! to me :/
heartsolid 15th-Jan-2013 11:24 pm (UTC)
I'm excited about all the solo stuff (hopefully there's a chance of GD&TOP Vol 2, especially since TOP doesn't like promoting solo). *Does TOP like to act btw? I haven't seen him act, so I was wondering if it was something he wants to do or something YG persisted on. Boy is so funny & charismatic in variety - I wish him and all the boys together could do variety more often.

I'm so happy Dae finally has his moment to really shine as an artist - I hope Japan/everybody shows his album love so he's reassured he has amazing talent.

Seungri looks like he enjoys his solo time in Japan so hopefully he'll strengthen his fanbase there.

Tae seems to have solid comebacks - I enjoyed both HOT & SOLAR comebacks (especially HOT) so I'm looking forward to see how he's matured musically and as a dancer.... and perhaps for the possible lol's xD. I enjoy his interviews too.

I think Top likes acting, supposedly he's studying drama, too, but I have no idea when he'd have time for that.

Every film he does is a little better than the previous one.
pon_pon_pink 15th-Jan-2013 11:28 pm (UTC)
i need more daesung and i want it in korean T_T
also i need more GD&TOP and GD to come to europe (i'm gonna repeat this in every post. i need this fine man to stand 10 cm in front of me again <3)
idk about taeyang, i'm afraid of all the second hand embarassment i'll experience when watching him promote lol
and seungri, i need seungri in everything!
monster_mutt 19th-Jan-2013 03:05 am (UTC)
I want a proper Dae solo in Korean too :(

Am I the only one who heard the rumor about Top going into the military this year?
shintotchi 15th-Jan-2013 11:57 pm (UTC)
So what I get from this is Big Bang will not have a comeback until 2015 and all the idol boybands shall rejoice! XDDD
benihime99 16th-Jan-2013 08:19 am (UTC)
YG talked about a comeback summer 2013, so 2015 is probably a good guess
asnindie 16th-Jan-2013 12:05 am (UTC)
Why no Seungri solo, we need a new VVIP.

Taeyang idk, unless he tones down his identity crisis I don't think I'll be able to stomach a comeback with the way he is now.

TOP needs to do a body swap romcom lbr

GD, idk, his solo needs to be less rushed and less about his possessions.

Anything by Dae is good, hopefully he'll be feeling up to it.
markthatcoin 16th-Jan-2013 12:54 am (UTC)
omg i hate body swap romcoms but i would dieeeeeeeeee, TOP would be incredible in that (their Secret Garden parody is top notch)
xalexandriam 16th-Jan-2013 12:13 am (UTC)
As much as VVIP is still my jam, needs more Seungri. And YG needs to give him time to work on his album with proper promos and everything.

I also need a Korean album from Dae, but praying his Japanese album doesn't flop.

GIT DAT MONEY
markthatcoin 16th-Jan-2013 12:56 am (UTC)
as much as i love the boys together, i think BB doing solo stuff is good news for all the other yg artists (and soon-to-be artists): YG doesn't sit knee-deep in the sort of work the boys are doing so he can actually focus elsewhere
sweetcherrytree 16th-Jan-2013 01:03 am (UTC)
GD&TOP Vol 2 NEEDS TO HAPPEN
myeolraftw 16th-Jan-2013 01:15 am (UTC)
First of all, I want a new hairstyle for Taeyang. He should go back to mohawk because lbr, his hairstyle lately makes him fugly. >.<

I need moooaarrr of Seungri and a TOP&Dae collab would be awesome!
johnnyquest89 16th-Jan-2013 02:21 am (UTC)
Remember that u asked for a new one again when he starts rockin a mullet.
tempestdance 16th-Jan-2013 01:37 am (UTC)
I feel like TOP being in a drama is just a hope for YG - TOP's wanted to release a solo album for awhile now but YG insists on acting -_- TOP is a rapper, dammit.

Am I the only one who would prefer a full-length studio album from Big Bang more than the solo activities? Their last studio album was in 2008 for God's sake.
benihime99 16th-Jan-2013 08:15 am (UTC)
I've always head/read the opposite.
IIRC TOP said several time he doesn't want a solo album cause he hates to promote solo and really wanted to focus on acting.... that might just be YG PR but I kinda believe it when he says he hates to promote alone
shazz_chan 16th-Jan-2013 01:40 am (UTC)
I need me some moar solo Panda and excited for DS's solo, Japanese or Korean I'm just happy he's getting something!
zombiechick815 16th-Jan-2013 01:52 am (UTC)
While I'm sad we won't get anything new from BB as a whole for a bit, I'm really excited at the prospect of solo stuff from ALL the members. Each one of them deserves to succeed because they are all so talented.

And of course I'll be crossing my fingers for GD&TOP vol. 2 ^^
rally_pchan 16th-Jan-2013 02:24 am (UTC)
Another GD&TOP album please. Or just TOP.
