The singer went through some psychological shock and since then have kept mostly to himself- even refusing to spend much time with his family. But recently, pictures of him at a church have surfaced, and this is the first time fans have heard any news about him in months. It seems as though Daesung is spending a lot of quality time within his church community lately.

[News] Seungri has the potential to be the next Kang Ho Dong? (110928)

On an episode of Mnet‘s ‘Wide Entertainment News‘ that aired on the 27th, the topic of who could be the next greatest MC to fill the shoes of legendary Kang Ho Dong was discussed.

The characteristics they were looking for were ‘cute’, ‘an insatiable appetite for meat’, ‘highly energetic’, ‘loved by all generations’, ‘speaks extremely well’, etc.

The celebrity at the top of the ‘high energy’ list? None other than Big Bang‘s maknae, Seungri. He was chosen for his intense vivacity, others on the list were Leessang‘s Gary, Seo In Young & comedian Park Myung Soo.

Seungri’s speaking abilities rivals Kang Ho Dong and he’s remarkably popular and even has his own sights on running a business. When he was a guest star on ‘Strong Heart‘, he made everyone on set explode in laughter as he spoke, and he and the rest of Big Bang are becoming increasingly popular not only in Korea but overseas as well, enough to be called the faces of this Hallyu wave. Seungri has plans to open an academy in Junrado, Gwangju, Daejun and even one in China.

In the ‘cute’ category, Kim Hyun Joong and KARA‘s Kang Jiyoung were chosen, along with SNSD‘s Sunny and Jeon Hyun Moo. For the category of the next celebrity with potential to be adored by all generations, veteran MC Song Hae was chosen along with Eun Ji Won and singer Lee Seung Chul, as well as actor Song Sae Byuk.

As for celebrities that can speak as well as Kang Ho Dong, Lee Wae Soo was chosen along with Kim Seo Hyung and Kim Sarang, as well as comedian Yoo Sae Yoon. For the category of best appetite for meat, actress Kim Tae Hee, Shin Minah, comedian Jung Hyung Don, and 2NE1‘s Park Bom were chosen.

[News] MBLAQ's Thunder invites Seungri out for salmon (110927)

On September 27th, MBLAQ‘s Thunder revealed a fatigued-looking selca of himself along with a special message to Big Bang‘s Seungri. Through his Twitter, Thunder wrote, “Revealing my dark circles! Seungri-ya~ let’s go eat salmon.”

Seungri is known for his panda-like dark circles, hence the mention in the tweet. Some also believe that eating salmon will help lighten up your dark circles, but it seems Thunder needs sleep more than anything.

His dark circles especially stand out against his pale white skin and bleached hair. Fans commented, “I heard that broccoli is better than salmon”, “Go catch some salmon with Seungri oppa one day”, and “You must be really tired lately.”

(NEWS) GDTOPVI in KWM Malaysia 2011 Malaysian Star Newspaper

Seven South Korean acts put up an awesome performance during the Korean Music Wave 2011 at Stadium Merdeka.

YOU can’t argue with K-pop daebak (literally meaning K-pop is awesome or the best), a pop music phenomenon which is the rage here! Amid frenzied scenes of pop adulation, the Korean Music Wave 2011 concert underlined the genre’s popularity at Stadium Merdeka in Kuala Lumpur last Saturday night.

The biggest K-pop concert in Malaysia (to date), the screamfest was headlined by Big Bang’s Seungri and GD & TOP, and featured Park Jung Min, FT Island, U-KISS, Teen Top and girl group 4Minute.

The screaming never stopped as the seven sizzling South Korean acts wowed 10,000 K-pop fans made up of VIPs (Big Bang fans), Primadonnas (FT Island fans), KissMes (U-KISS fans), 4nias (4Minute fans), Angels (Teen Top fans) and Park Jung Min fans.

By the time it was Big Bang’s turn to perform, the crowd was on their feet, with some perched on plastic chairs while others moved to the grass where they could bounce and groove freely.

Looking dashing in a suit, Big Bang’s Seungri got fans leaping with joy when he declared that “Malaysian fans are bagus”, then serenaded them with VVIPWhat Can I Do and Strong Baby.

While the rest of the acts kept to a black-and-white theme, GD & TOP were a riot in their colourful outfits as they ran about the stage belting out High HighOh Yeah and Knock Out. Making their debut performance here, the duo were pleasantly surprised that local fans could sing Korean songs.

A blast of pyrotechnics and golden streamers took the show to its grand finale but fans waited around to watch their idols being shuttled off in vans.

The show may be over but my ears are still ringing with fans screamingsaranghae! (We love you), bogoshipoyo! (We miss you!).

[News] K-pop band Big Bang brings the house down

Even with just three members, out of the original five, K-pop band Big Bang brought the house down last night (Sept 23) with loads of energy and declarations of love for their Singapore fans.

In just one hour, the trio - Seungri, 20, G-Dragon, 23 and TOP, 23 - brought out seven songs, to which every single teenage girl fan sang along to. This resulted in a fast-paced concert that matched songs like Seungri's White Love*; G-Dragon and TOP's Oh Yeah, where they exchanged rapid fire verses of rap in Korean without missing a beat.

This brought the end of day one of the F1 weekend to a high and set the standards for the following concerts to come.

(NEWS) G-Dragon writes his song even in a crowded airport?

Big Bang’s G-Dragon’s airport photo is the latest buzz on the web, but not for the reasons one might expect from a fashionista like GD himself.

The photo above was posted on an online community board on the 23rd under the title, “G-Dragon writes his songs even at the airport”.

The poster described, “G-Dragon was standing in the baggage claim area wearing a headphone. Then suddenly he took out a piece of paper and started writing something on it. I took a peek at it and I was surprised to see that he as writing music notes”.

As you can see in the photo G-Dragon is in a busy airport with many people around him, but when his musical genius kicks in he has to write his songs regardless of the time or place.

After seeing the photo the netizens commented, “So this is how managed to write more than 100 songs”, “It’s nice to see him concentrating so hard”, “He looks good even when he’s writing songs”, and so on.

(NEWS) Big Bang Daesung to return for 2012 Big Show?

Big Bang’s Daesung could very well be making his comeback with the group in February of 2012.

Daesung was forced to withdraw from all promotions for the remainder of the year due to a scandal involving the death of a motorcyclist. Back in May, Daesung had run over a motorcyclist on the road, who had previously crashed and was lying unconscious on the road. Investigations dragged on for months, and Daesung was eventually found not guilty for his involvement with the motorcyclist’s death. For that reason, there’s a slightly bigger chance that Daesung will be returning sooner than expected.

Almost every year, Big Bang holds their February “Big Show” concert, and it’s rumored that Daesung will make his comeback through that event.

YG Entertainment CEO Yang Hyun Suk cautiously commented, “We are still careful about Daesung’s comeback to the industry; for now, Daesung has no promotional activities. We will try to bring Daesung back, but instead of through a program on TV, I think a concert where fans can really see him up-close and personal would be better.”

He concluded, “Of course, we haven’t even confirmed whether we will hold next year’s February ‘Big Show’ concert yet.”

Currently, Daesung is actively involved in his church and doing small services for the community while taking this period of hiatus to reflect.
