GD's Star Column

Hello This is Jiyong from BIGBANG.!!^^
Bit late but happy new years & I hope everyone's healthy.


First, Bigbang's 2012 world tour has been successful with only few final concerts left in Korea. Of course, we are most thankful for our fans and our staffs. Clap clap clap!! Thank you for your effort~!! Hope to do well in Korean Concert too ^^


Now~ What fun episodes can I reveal? I was thinking, to me,World Tour was more like traveling rather than schedule. So when I look back, each and everything is left in my head as a fun memory. I will tell you some special stories among them~ It's short but impressive so be ready! ^^

First thing that comes into mind was when I was with DARA noona in the Philippines. Dara from 2NE1 came to see our concert. (Nuna~ Thank you!!^^)


Since DARA was experienced with the Phillipines, our members and I stubbornly persisted her to take us to nice places. Finally, DARA nuna said she knew a good restaurant so she suggested that we go eat. So for the first time ever, All five members decided to eat! out! Even managers, staffs and securities!! Since it was our first eating-out in Phillipines, we were all excited and we got all dressed up and left with nuna ^^

At first we were excited so we talked about this and that, enjoying the view, in a picnic mood. Dara nuna said we would have to go to the suburbs but we were going too far~ Then people started falling asleep And it started getting dark. (I heard this later but Dara was anxious. Didn't know because we were in a diff. car ㅠㅠ)


After 2 hr drive, we arrived at an outdoor restaurant where u can enjoy your meal with great view and beautiful sunset. B.U.T. we left late so when we arrived it was already dark... We just had to eat in the dark. PPA RA BAM~! (DARA ver.) But since it's a famous restaurant, we just ate the food Dara recommended and it was a meaningful time and we talked. (This is where I took the picture with the Long~ Beer bottle~ You guys all know right??)


One more shocking fact we found out when we were almost done eating! There was a same restaurant 5 mins away from our hotel.. But I won't regret the fun talk with good food with good people. IF ONLY.. we didn't have to drive two hours...^^; Dara nuna!! Thank you for making good memories! Ssang you~!!!^^


There weren't any special episodes but I remember my traveling for few days in London after the show.

Roaming around London, I saw and learned a lot of things and met lots of fans who recognized me... It wasn't an official schedule so I wasn't prepared for the trip & I faced many problems but it was all left as a good memory.

We always drive in a hurry so we didn't have experiences like this so it was nice to sightsee, eat and talk with the staffs. I couldn't stay for long but if I get a chance I am planning to go back there (London) ^^


Us, BIGBANG, enjoy eating good food. We always eat each country's special food. We ate Crabs for every meal in Singapore that I almost got sick of it. hahaha^^; (But I would eat it again!!)

But a place we cannot forget is a Korean Restaurant~! We ate more Korean food outside Korea. We ate at least two Korean meals. Some Korean restaurants in other countries tasted better than Korean restaurants so I was often amused. ^^


Before the show, we always fill our stomachs with Side dish, Kimchi, Korean food from chef all the way from Korea.

Thank you again for all the staffs who take care of every little things to help us focus on our show. ^^


Ah!! And this is about the concert stage.Once the show starts the stage becomes a mess that’s almost like a battlefield~ We have to get dressed, fix our hair and makeup in a few seconds and appear on the stage like nothing happened. Lots of staffs work to make this happen. From all this chaos, I always do one thing. That is…MONITOR SEUNGRI’S SOLO STAGE!!

It's cute when Youngbae and Daesung run out of the dressing room, even though they’re not ready, to watch Seungri ...^^

Seungri is still a little bro to us & everything he does is so cute so now it became like a program to monitor his solo stage. He appears to look cool but is it just us that it looks a little cute~?^^ (Seungri fans~ don’t misunderstand~! Seungri is always a cool member to us!!^^)


When we are done performing we gather and discuss about that day's performance. Fun stories that only we know, even though it's only guy members when we gather we talk endlessly ^^;


We always said we will travel together but we never actually did. But through this tour, we were able to travel together. So this tour was a special time for me. Since we can't really go outside the hotel, we hung out in our rooms or in the pool. We were busy with solo and overseas schedules but from this tour, I got closer to my members than my family~^^


Going to good places with good people with good food and talking about good stories... Best thing I learned from this tour. And through the tour, I can say that I am the happiest right now! ^^ End of Jiyong's story~!!!


Everyone Good~~~Bye~~~~!! See you at the Seoul Concert~!^^

TOP's column was the best. It made me finally like him, he seems like he'd be interesting to talk to.
This was cute though.
heartsolid 25th-Jan-2013 10:33 pm (UTC)
lol, you didn't like him before (/why)?
hellodee16 25th-Jan-2013 10:34 pm (UTC)
There was a same restaurant 5 mins away from our hotel..
lol omg

and so cute of them to always monitor seungri's stage.
heartsolid 25th-Jan-2013 10:39 pm (UTC)

How cute was that!?! <3

our members and I stubbornly persisted her to take us to nice places. Finally, DARA nuna said she knew a good restaurant so she suggested that we go eat.

Dang Dara, you made them beg? lol. Does she like hanging with BB members - by herself especially? Also, IDK much about the Philippines, why was Dara anxious of nighttime?

This series was so cute, I enjoyed it
aifurikuri 25th-Jan-2013 10:48 pm (UTC)
It was taking too long to reach the restaurant, and to make it even worse, she also might have realized that there was one near the hotel. Oh well, at least they got their food in the end.

Poor Dara.
soramai 25th-Jan-2013 10:47 pm (UTC)
aww, that was fun to read! I like the way they all want to watch Seungri solo performance.

And lol, Dara, you're too cute!
mizzyoung 25th-Jan-2013 10:51 pm (UTC)
Dara has been increasingly endearing to me lately. I never had an opinion of her, but once she got that undercut I've been paying attention to her more often
miwa201 25th-Jan-2013 11:02 pm (UTC)
mte, she's my second bias now. She's too cute.
jeugd1 25th-Jan-2013 11:00 pm (UTC)

Aw, this was cute. The bits of them always making sure to watch Seungri's stage are super adorable.

even though it's only guy members when we gather we talk endlessly
Just say that you get together to gossip, Jiyong.

I really liked these columns. It made me feel ~closer to them :'D
markthatcoin 26th-Jan-2013 12:17 am (UTC)
i loled at that line. boys gossip worse than girls.
vvipforseungri 25th-Jan-2013 11:58 pm (UTC)
I loved reading these, I feel like it's been so long since I've seen them... but they did attend the Gayos so. I've missed these mofos.

LOL @ monitoring seungri's stage lbr jiyong you've got to quit trying to make people think you find sr just "cute" still.
pon_pon_pink 26th-Jan-2013 12:12 am (UTC)
daras friendship with the boys is so cute <3 and ahww GD bb i love you way too much. This was really sweet and i think i liked all their columns but TOPs was probably my favouirte. But i also like reading stuff from GD because he always seems so cool and distant but just like when reading his twitter he's actually very childish and cute.
markthatcoin 26th-Jan-2013 12:16 am (UTC)
this was so cute. i love them! and cameo by Dara ^^ tbh i was ambivalent on pretty much everyone except TOP until Alive, this past year really endeared them all to me

i can't wait for the DVD so i can relive the concert forever omg: i honestly thought Seungri's stage was Taeyang at first because of that MAMA performance from 2010 with the damn IRIS/guns theme. i sat down. then i leapt up. i was so taken aback!

OP do you think you can edit in links to the other articles in this series like at the end of this post? from one fan to another, THANK YOU ^^

this marks the end of the Star Column and i am so grateful for that. the column really help me understand their thoughts during their tour. and also at the boys stuffing themselves with chilli crab in Singapore! i wish they would try other food though. there are many other better delicacies here haha
falling_empress 26th-Jan-2013 10:31 pm (UTC)
daesung actually looks good for once in that pool pic.

unfffffffffffffff GD feels coming back.
kittyxgrell 27th-Jan-2013 02:57 pm (UTC)
