[News] "Entertainment Relay", broadcast that was made for answers they want to hear

Several articles on the "Entertainment Relay" controversy were posted already but here is a commentary piece from 10Asia about the recent broadcast. 10Asia is famous for its fair articles and straight-to-the-point commentary.

The broadcast was aired with Reese Witherspoon's interview, DJ DOC's court details and Block B's apology. It was followed by "BIGBANG's comeback timing controversy". The BIGBANG special was separated from all the other issues in the broadcast. It was argued that BIGBANG's comeback was too soon because of couple of members being involved in different incidents. The broadcast pointed out that G-Dragon's and Daesung's incidents still have few suspicions and doubts that are not yet clearly sorted out.

[News] Big Bang chosen as "Sunny10" models

On the 28th, Coca Cola announced that BIGBANG will continue to endorse Sunny10 Sparklingade.

Last year, Sunny10 had G-Dragon and T.O.P as their main advertisement models and they did a re-make of Sunny10's CF song, which was a big hit.

This year, with BIGBANG's comeback, all the members of the group will be working as Sunny10's Sparklingade models.

Coca Cola said, "Idol group BIGBANG's trendy and stylish character matches Sunny10's Sparklingade's image. Because of this, we decided to go with BIGBANG for Sunny10's new CF. BIGBANG making a comeback to the public after a long a break and Sunny10's Sparklingade are both fresh and we believe that Sparklingade's 10% fruit juice will grab younger consumers' attention and love."

BIGBANG recently shot a TV CF with the message, "FRESH SWITCH" to Sunny10's Sparklingade. It will start airing this March.

[News] Taeyang, "T.O.P is actually childlike, even a little klutzy"

On the recent filming of SBS's Running Man, Big Bang's Taeyang disclosed that T.O.P's cold, charismatic persona is actually just a made-up image.

During the shoot, T.O.P showed his relaxed and even clumsy sides, making the co-stars and producers laugh. A few years ago, T.O.P starred in "Iris," the hit action drama starring Lee Byunghun, as a ruthless and brutal killer. This, along with his charismatic performance on the stage, has defined the image of T.O.P so far.

Taeyang (edited!) said, "You remember T.O.P as a cold-hearted killer from Iris, but he is actually so gentle and childlike, even a little klutzy."

He continued, "Real T.O.P and the killer in 'Iris' are completely different. He has a warm and mild personality."

During the shoot, T.O.P was indeed smiling all the time and being a nice man, to the surprise of all.

[News] Fans accuse KBS "Entertainment Relay" of foul play with Big Bang

BIGBANG recently appeared on KBS 2TV “Entertainment Relay,” and the title for their segment was “BIGBANG’s comeback, is it a return that is already forgiven?” BIGBANG fans were suspicious whether KBS was deliberately trying to downplay BIGBANG’s comeback. “Entertainment Relay” pointed out whether it was too early for BIGBANG to comeback.

The fans argue that the “inappropriate” title and direction of the segment was due to KBS and YG Entertainment’s rocky relationship. In 2010, KBS and YGE had issues of how long BIGBANG would be appearing on the show. Afterwards, YG Entertainment celebrities would not appear on KBS award shows. YGE associated acts were also not present for “Music Bank in Paris.”

When the interviewer asked the actress who her ideal type is, Kim Yoo Jung answered, “BIGBANG’s TOP is my ideal type.” She added, “In one of the interviews, the interviewer asked me to choose my ideal type out of Kim Soo Hyun, Jung Il Woo, Yeo Jin Goo, and Lee Min Ho, and the story was blown out of proportions.” The VJ playfully asked, “So Soo Hyun is just an oppa?” Kim Yoo Jung shyly responded, “Kim Soo Hyun is just an oppa I like.”

During the short segment, Kim Yoo Jung also revealed her brain structure, showing that BIGBANG’s comeback occupied a substantial part of her brain.
