General discussion about the group here. Please don't try to fangirl too hard. Fangirls ruin everything.

The latest single. Fifth Japanese single, titled "Beautiful Hangover."
Not as great as their past Japanese singles. "Gara Gara GO!!" was awesome, and their whole Japanese album was amazing. :(

Also Taeyang, I love you.

So, since I am so in love with 2NE1, I decided to give other YG artists a chance. GD and TOP have been doing things, and despite knowing nothing about BIG BANG, I love them.

THIS VIDEO.

There's sexy ladies and puppies and bubble wrap and TOP reading Mama Makes Up Her Mind. The entire video is gifworthy (and has been made into gifs already over at omona and tumblr). I'll spare you and stick with a reasonable number:

High High ruled too. In fact, I liked the song much more. The MV really can't compare, though.

IN CONCLUSION, IT IS MY OPINION THAT--

Aaaand it's been banned.

GD&TOP’s third title track, “Knock Out“, has been banned from all three public broadcasting networks.

KBS, MBC, and SBS stated that the reason for the ban was because the title and lyrics used slang, which they believed would damage the national psyche.


Ayup.

There's a translation here of the lyrics.

Yes, they are so damaging to Korean psyches. Because I don't know about you, but I am so offended by words like "This is double double, double double,combo double double, double combo// They say bubble bubble, bubble bubble // So you wander wander wander and we turn turn turn."

That's exactly what I was thinking :lol: Korea is just weird like that I guess. That music video was really weird and random though, but it was fun to watch. And TOP's chair xD

Maybe it's code for "lemme motorboat them sweater puppies" in Korea. Bubble bubble. Combo. :lol:

One of their other promo tracks for this cycle got banned also, but only by one channel. Hilariously, I understand this being offensive far more than I do being scandalized be the words "Knock Out."

...another title song “Don’t Go Home” has also been banned from MBC.

This morning, Big Bang’s company YG Entertainment (YGE), said to Moneytoday Starnews, “about getting “Knock Out” banned, we were a bit expecting that to happen, so we are not planning to request the retrial, but we are a little surprised at MBC’s decision about “Don’t Go Home”.”

Continuing to speak, “We don’t think “Don’t Go Home” has any problems, so as the other broadcasting stations, KBS and SBS didn’t ban it. Meanwhile we were surprised at MBC’s decision banning “Don’t Go Home”. but considering MBC have their reasons too, we’ll request for a retrial politely this time.”

YG also added, “We think TOP’s rap in “Don’t Go Home” is considered to be the problem, but please understand that they’re just lyrics.” They also emphasized, “We are not modifying the lyrics in the process of requesting for the retrial.”

TOP’s rap consists,

I don’t want this awkward atmosphere, Is the sound of the clock usually
this loud? I just hear the swallowing sound in my neck. What should I
say? Look baby, I just want to greet the morning with you, Before the
night ends, a secret party for only the two of us, But you’re like a
Cinderella, you wanna leave when the clock strikes 12, A night by myself
is too long, callin’ up to your parents, I’m pretending to be strong but
I feel uneasy


Meanwhile the other song “Knock Out” is banned from the three major terrestrial broadcasting stations for the name of the song is spoiling the national psyche.

WOW. That's amazing. :puppyeyes: :lol: :oiy:

You should check out Big Bang. I still haven't heard all of their stuff, but random stuff they do is pretty great.
Did you see the collab they did with 2NE1 when 2NE1 first debuted? Start there for an intro/segue. My favorite song of theirs is Lies.

Following GD&TOP, Seungri released his mini-album called "VVIP." AKP has kindly listed all the tracks and so forth so click here if you want to listen to them.

I personally think the album is alright, it's just that I find some songs slightly boring and well American pop sounding? But one of the tracks features IU so that's pretty cool :thumbsup:

IU <3

"Lollipop" was really my exposure to Big Bang. I had that song on repeat for HOURS. My grandmother was probably ready to claw her ears off.
My first song was "Haru Haru, though" (ironic, I know), but I really wasn't *that* into it. I like it some now, but it's still nothing compared to "Lollipop."
Other choice songs (in my opinion) are "Hallelujah," "So Beautiful," and their entire Japanese language album.

I'm so bad though. I don't know which one Seungri is. :whistling:

MV for Seungri's What Can I Do was released a few days ago. Watch it! WATCH IT!

It's nothing special, but I think he sings pretty good. ;D

AHAHAHAHAHA I CAN'T

I lost it at the pomegranate and it was all down hill for me after that. Every SENSUAL SEXY SENSUOUSNESS moment they tried to convey with food or snakes or holding books or whatever just broke me apart until I flailed helplessly on the floor, gasping for breathe between my now painful laughter.

Someone posted this. And this. Everyone else thought it was the most sensual sexy sensuality of all time.

What a way to get around censors. I need to go take a nap to recover from this.

The double standard on Omona is absolutely incredible. These girls are RAUNCHY. If the dudes all commented like this on a SNSD or KARA video they'd get the internet beatdown for being objectifying pig-faced superpervs.

Yes, it was a music video composed entirely of innuendo and men I don't find sexy trying super hard to look sexy. It was too much for my little brain.

Nah, I have more of a boner for GD than TOP. But I will confess he is a good-looking guy.

Big Bang is resuming Japanese activities in April. Single, then a little tour. Should be good. :)

Neither of them do it for me. GD would seem like potentially less of a jerk than TOP, but I could still see him being kind of one. Also he's tiny; I would not feel like a delicate lady.

TOP has a good voice, though, I will give him that much. That's still not enough for me to put up a poster of him in my room and leave him lipstick kisses like sadude does.

You must have me confused with GD. The man who actually, you know, wears lipstick.

It's been out for a while.

They also did a Secret Garden parody on their comeback special that made me weep with laughter. TOP likes kissing dudes and G-Dragon likes having boobs.

Also they're fighting with KBS now. You missed a lot.

Does GD break a real guitar every time? That's a waste. His guitar segment is also hilarious.

But nothing, NOTHING is funnier than TOP's "sexy" face in the very last shot. HE HAD IT... HE HAD IT... aaaaand he lost it. Poor TOP.

I think this album is most definitely one of their better ones, but I'm looking forward to their Japanese release.
Come on, "Lollipop ~Japanese Ver~."
