[Videos] Seungri and Big Bang on Leitura Dinâmica Brazil



Translation: "What Can I Do" released last week is still doing well on music charts and he should have his international debut this month. So we say good bye with Seungri's song. Good night and see you tomorrow!

The same program also had a KPOP special and below is the cut with BIGBANG. Full video here.






Translation: 2NE1 already has an album produced by Will.I.am, from Black Eyed Peas. The record will only be released in April, but it’s already on the Billboard list of potential hits. But KPOP is not only about girl groups. Big Bang is the main boyband of the moment, one of the the most awarded in Asia. From this group, comes famous names like Seung Ri and G-Dragon.

Note: They made a mistake on the part about Seungri's international debut. Not also sure about the bit on 2NE1.

[NEWS] Seungri “G-Dragon sent me a 30-line text message, he’s really hateful”


After saying Jiyong was his favorite member in pretty much the very beginning:
Jiyong is kind of hateful [by hateful it's not like hateful as in he hates other things/people but it's kind of like... someone you want to hate but can't]. He criticizes a lot but then takes care of us after, so it’s very hateful. After the first broadcast [of the comeback] he sent me a 30-line text message. This is the longest text message I have ever read from Jiyong.”
No Hong Chul asks what kind of stuff he wrote so Seungri replies
He wrote tons of bad stuff about my expression, live performance, gesture, what kind of dance is that, are you really a dancing kid, what is this, do you not exercise these days, you look so dwarfish/weak, do you not see the camera etc. I got scolded when I got home and I said stuff like please wait, I will do better etc.”
Then Seungri says that “Jiyong called the managers, stylists, etc. and told them to take care of Seungri well and give him warm food and all that caring stuff. Seungri says Jiyong is hateful because his hyung is so cool and can do everything.”
Another section was when No Hong Chul asks him what kind of comments online are the most hurtful. So Seungri says “this isn’t something that happened to me personally but to another person. The person called me crying and said that he got a comment saying ‘the only thing left for this person is suicide.
So I told him “to not care about those comments too much and tried to cheer him up but I was hurt too. I said that I would save him.”
He didn’t specifically say GD but I remember on NAN GD talked about how someone told him to commit suicide and for some reason the MC was like how did Seungri respond to those negative things? And GD talked about how Seungri was very mature about it and told him not to care about it blah blah so I’m guessing Seungri was talking about GD.
Another section is the classic if you were a girl who would you date from Big Bang?” Seungri answers “G-dragon.” he kind of sighs/groans LOL and hes like,
he is very romantic. I’m his roommate so I see everything. He’s seriously romantic. If he dates someone he makes a song for them. One time he asked me how the song was. And I said oh my god if this was released in Korea there’d be a huge deal and it would make so much money. But… since it’s for the woman he loves it’s only for her and gives up that money/fame from that song.”

[VIDEO/NEWS] Dara “G-Dragon is a good romantic”!



2NE1 member, Sandara Park unveiled a cute story with G-Dragon. On January 29, Sandara Park revealed on KBSTV2 Entertainment Tonight (MC Shin Hyun Jun) that, G-Dragon is someone you’d think ‘This is a man I hope to find good romance with,’ though you won’t think it of him” she said.
Sandara Park continued, “Not long ago, I went to ski with G-Dragon,” she said, “Usually, though it’s not something many people believe, G-Dragon is not one who says so many words. So he got my ski board that I was carrying, without saying anything,” she revealed.
When he heard this, G-Dragon said, “Sandara Park was holding this board that looked like twice her weight,” he continued, “It looked hard for her. So without care, I got it, her thanks is enough.”

[News] Big Tone talks about working with Seungri


Excerpt from an interview with BIGTONE:

How did you feel collaborating with Seungri for his new album?
It was a good experience.
Seungri composed and wrote lyrics for the first time on this mini album,
but he was very good and passionate for his first time,
so I had a lot of fun working with him.
It was the first time a song I worked on became a title song, so I felt good about that.

[NEWS] Jung Eun has died at age 15 of Leukemia


Last December, Big Bang and Jinusean’s Sean made a surprise visit to a young girl named Jung Eun, who was fighting for her life against leukemia. Jung Eun was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of 15, and her one dream was to meet Big Bang’s Daesung in real life, which led her father to leave a message on a Big Bang fansite.
Sean immediately took notice of it, and he and the Big Bang members periodically visited the fan in the hospital. They even invited her to their concert in February, in the hopes that she’d be well enough to attend by then.
But on January 28th, Sean revealed that Jung Eun had passed away. The artist wrote through his Twitter: Jung Eun has left for Heaven.
“Because of her father’s love and the efforts of Big Bang’s fans, Jung Eun was able to receive the precious gift of spending time with the members of Big Bang before she left. Jung Eun herself gave us a gift in return, in which she raised awareness for children fighting leukemia.
” I’ve earned a lot of things from Jung Eun. Jung Eun was able to bring together the fans of Big Bang under one heart. Jung Eun became a great example of the power of social networking.
” Our country is the strongest IT nation in the world, and I’d like for us to think for once just what we choose to share through social networking. I think it’d great if this section of our lives helped realize someone’s dreams, gave hope, and shared love. While fighting leukemia, this internet space was what helped Jung Eun realize her dream of meeting Big Bang.” Netizens commented, “It would’ve been so great if she was able to attend their concert in February…,” “I hope she is happy in Heaven,” and “Rest in peace.”
