About Big Bang
Meet the South Korean version of One Direction, Big Time Rush or Westlife.
Under YG Entertainment, the group known as Big Bang -- leader G-Dragon, T.O.P., Taeyang, Daesung and Seungri – debuted back in the summer of 2006 and are now officially known as the "Nation's Boy Band." They also happen to be the all-time best-selling artists in Cyworld, South Korea's official social network service operated by SK Communications.
Big Bang's big breakthrough came with the hit "Lies," which went to No. 1 on all major Korean music charts and stayed there for a record-breaking seven consecutive weeks. The group received Song of the Year honors at the 2007 Mnet Korean Music Festival, and followed the success with the chart-toppers "Last Farewell" and "Haru Haru." That netted them Artist of the Year from Mnet in 2008, and after the group expanded their music to Japan, they captured three awards at the 9th MTV Video Music Awards Japan.
Though Big Bang members have branched out to work on solo endeavors (Taeyang and G-Dragon have each released individual albums), the band re-emerged in 2011 with the album "Tonight." They were subsequently named Best Worldwide Act at the 2011 MTV Europe Music Awards, and three months later released "Alive," their first Korean album to chart on the Billboard 200.
Big Bang embarked on its first ever world tour, which concluded in early 2013. Their 2014 schedule remains just as ambitious, with dates scheduled through August. Notable dates include stops at the Real Now Festival in Seoul and the A-Nation Music Festival.
