[NEWS] KBS Entertainment Relay & Big Bang Controversy

Posted: 25 Feb 2012 10:08 AM PST

(Please read the links posted after the article)

On KBS "Entertainment Relay", the controversies of Big Bang's sudden comeback and incidents from last year were brought up along with very suitable statements.

With the recent news of Big Bang's new comeback, a lot of heated reviews have been made. Especially with the public appearance both Daesung and G-Dragon made asking for the public's forgiveness.

The first major issue that was covered on this day's episode was of the time Daesung (appeared on Healing Camp and) showed his gratefulness and sorriness, "At the funeral, the family of the deceased got very angry with me. However, the aunt and older brother of the victim came to me personally after some time had passed. They told me, 'We cannot changed what has already happened and we do not want you leaving what you have behind. We want to see you working harder and smiling on television more often.'"

But regarding this situation, Entertainment Relay's staff was able to personally meet the mother of the deceased and asked about it. The mother responded, "He (Daesung) never even came near here (the house). Even at the funeral, we couldn't even see his face," and that Daesung had shown up for one of the funeral days, but never even met up with the victim's parents.

Accordingly, many viewers of tonight's episode have been commenting, "So what if he didn't see them? It wasn't his fault and he didn't want to purposely kill the man." And in regards to the settlement money, the parents stated, "We have not gotten any." With the parents living through hardship in a poor environment, it saddened the viewers as they were watching them throughout this interview.

On one hand, Daesung was acquitted for the accident and had released announcements of a new drama production only after four months. G-Dragon had also continued to film television advertisements even after his marijuana controversy.

Some arguments are being made that they are taking advantage of the suspension of indictment and acquittance that were given upon them.

Currently, 63.6% of South Korea has taken a poll that Big Bang's comeback is still too early.

[NEWS] Yang Hyun Suk, “I don’t have the courage to make another group like Big Bang anymore.”

Posted: 25 Feb 2012 04:58 AM PST

YG Entertainment's CEO, Yang Hyun Suk (43), has revealed, "I don't have the strength or courage to create a group like Big Bang anymore."

When CEO Yang recently held an interview at the Seoul Mapo-Gu YG Building, he stated, "Although I will be producing more groups in the future, I don't think I will ever be able to find new group members that could harmonize with each other as well as Big Bang does. All of them match up to each other perfectly like a man and woman would do when they are in love."

According to his explanation, Big Bang may not be the best looking and may not be the best dancers out there, but each member holds a distinct individuality as a weapon that allows them to perform freely, which is the main reason why they receive so much love from their fans in and out of our country.

"Usually in both Korea and Japan, group dancing (synchronized dancing) is the most popular characteristic people look for in groups. However, Big Bang shows a lot of free moves and dances within their performances. That is why I think they receive a lot more response from different countries outside of Korea and Japan."

Considering these factors, Big Bang's new mini-album 'ALIVE' holds many different genres of music to appeal to fans outside of Korea as well.

CEO Yang also stated that, "Aiming to make a musical change and living up to the focal point, this is an album with comprehensive genres" and that "in order to let each of these songs shine it's own special light, we have decided to make all six songs the title song."

Currently, to let the world know of these songs, Big Bang has been undergoing multi-directional promotions.

On the past 22nd, one of their songs titled "BLUE" was the first to be released and has taken over the #1 spot on all music charts and the rest of the song's teasers have been planned to be revealed through TV advertisements starting on the 24th.

The order of these releases are as follows: 24th 'Love Dust', 25th 'Bad Boy', 26th 'Ain't No Fun', 27th 'Fantastic Baby', and the 28th 'Wings'.

CEO Yang elaborated, "Having all the songs from the album be title songs might be, needless to say, the first to set precedent within the country" and that, "Choosing only one song to perform on music show programs to win the #1 spot is meaningless now, in my opinion. What's more important is that we need to let everyone know of this brand called Big Bang and let everyone know of every song on their album."

Big Bang's new mini-album will be released on the 29th, as well as the group's comeback concert (on March 2-4) at the Olympic Sports Stadium.

[News] Block B’s P.O Diagnosis!

Posted: 25 Feb 2012 02:04 AM PST

Note: Please note that Brand New Stardom and Block B have not released an official statement regarding this matter. P.O's condition is NOT THE SAME as the classic depiction of schizophrenia. His diagnosis is very minor and was brought on by stress and shock. He did not have a pre-existing condition. 

The diagnosis of Block B's P.O, who was hospitalized as a result of public criticism against their inappropriate interview with Thailand media, has been revealed.
Through a call with W Star News from a representative of Block B's management BrandnewStardom, it was explained that, "The results of P.O's diagnostic tests, who is currently admitted to a university hospital, has come out. The psychiatric expert's opinion is that it's stress-induced schizophrenia. It looks like the immediate cause of it would be excessive cyber-bullying." The official added that while his condition is not critical, his improvement shall be further monitored before other arrangements are made.
"We hope there will be no more criticisms arising from mere speculations. Although we had hoped to not expose the hospital, fans are already moving (to visit him). Because it is now the weekend, it would also be difficult to move him to another hospital." He continued, expressing their helplessness in the situation.
Regarding the other members of Block B, he relayed that, "The kids were ignorant and rash but the reactions have been too severe. At present they are very anxious and look very pitiful." He avoided responding to questions about Block B's future activities.
