big bang korean boy band

Big Bang is a famous korean boyband, consists of five members : G-Dragon, Tae Yang, Seung Ri, Dae Sung, T.O.P. Big Bang may be the most well knowned Korea group band after Tohoshinki.

Although their debut was somewhat successful, it was not until the release of "거짓말" ("Lies") that the group gained mainstream success. Big Bang have been noted for their music as well as their taste in fashion, becoming famous throughout the country in the process.

Big Bang also famous in Japan, as they are also releasing album in Japanese language. In 2008, "Big Bang" entered the Japanese market with their Japanese album "For The World" (a collection of previous Korean singles in addition to new song "How Gee"). A third Korean mini-album "Stand Up" was also released.

Big Bang is a complete team. The members of the band are all talented performers; from vocals and rap to dance and songwriting, Big Bang filled its debut album with music created by the members themselves. G.DRAGON and T.O.P wrote the lyrics of their debut single. All 5 members of the band will not take part in each song; each member of the band will choose the songs that best showcase their talents. G.DRAGON and T.O.P., who both excel in rap, will perform “We Belong Together” and the R&B ballad “A Tearful Fool” will be performed by Tae-yang, Dae-sung and Seung-ri.
