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


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 ...

Geez, this. I listened to "My Girl" the other night and I had to double-check to make sure it was Tae. He sounded so much better then - you can tell its where his voice is supposed to be at/where he's most comfortable. He needs to just step back into a time machine - both voice and fashion-wise

Wow. I haven't heard that cover. ...Wow. That was beautiful. Damn I miss that voice (and I can't believe I forgot about that fine ass photoshoot @ 2:55). It's so rich and deep, and soulful towards the end.

Idk what happened...let us hope we'll be hearing this tempo (?) on the new album!

LOL @ the reverse puberty. But honestly I'd believe it.

I couldn't believe the first part of the vid especially. I haven't heard some of the features and its been a while since I've heard a few and to see the contrast between then and now is crazy. His singing voice is so much better when left alone. Sexier too *cough* I wonder how much control YB has on BB v. his solo projects? Hopefully he'll sing in his range of expertise and kick GD out the room before he starts giving singing advice.

So it's freakin GD. I'm not surprised since he kept trying to make Bom sing sing in a higher pitch on 2ne1 tv before he switched her to 'Oh Yeah.'

And oh yeah to YG fillin his pockets with cash - he won't care until it becomes a problem.

Thanks for sharing this btw.

Honestly.... musically he probably has more control than we think/give credit for. I mean the members always say when gd's not around yb's the one who picks up the leader role. + he's almost always in the studio slipping in at least 1 r&b track into the album (even if he didn't write them). while everyone else is runnin the gauntlet of the kpop idol. So I guess them high notes on the tracks could be his fault too lol.

if he goes back to the sounds and style of HOT i am all about that.

nhf anything else tbh

but ITA he sounds SO DIFFERENT in "my girl" he even sounds different on HOT than he does now. i HATE the way he's using his voice
heartsolid 17th-Jan-2013 02:10 am (UTC)
right? HOT was perfection.
me too, I so hope he's smart and has his musical ear strapped on tight. in the lives of "you're my" he could barely hit the high notes - he has to realize those high notes strains his voice.

omg when i went to see BB live for their tour i was stunned at how BAD he sounded at times. during his solo stage he barely sang his song---the back up singers did all the work. he belted out like 3 over sung notes, over danced and left.

i am SO not here for him lately.
heartsolid 17th-Jan-2013 02:55 am (UTC)
Oh wow, you went to the concert? That's so awesome. I was so upset I wasn't able to go. Were you there for sound check? I love hearing what they were like/interactions with fans were like during the ALIVE tour.

But wooww. He should catch a clue and stop reaching for high notes he's not meant to reach. I hope someone could convince him to revert to the deep vocals.

And I had to LOL at "he belted out like 3 over sung notes, over danced and left."

I think he's doing that shit he's done lately on purpose. I can't with him right now.
