Seung-chan's Diary: "Golden state California"

Posted: 04 Nov 2012 07:00 AM PST



Bigbang did live performances at Honda center which is far from LA by 1 hour.
Beyonce, Lady GaGa, Usher, Bon Jovi !! famous American artists have done Live here. their photos are exhibited in front of waiting rooms. our photos would be exhibited there soon, I thought !

but I did something absurd today. I can't excuse about it. I shouldn't have said 'Sunshine State' to California fans.
Sunshine state is a common word used in Flo Rida, "California is Golden state" a driver told me.
it's like I said "Thank you Yokohama!! (^O^)/" in Osaka. I'm a fool for real.. I should apologize heartily tomorrow. recently I have affairs to be reflected...

but I tried in clumsy English... eventually, everyone said "SeungRi is Funny guy!"...
I didn't intend to be funny.. I was sincere in English.. why do I become a funny guy.. why.. I will ask my mom..

After Live, special guests appeared ! performers in Glee, a popular drama in the US, came to greet us !! somehow they seemed to come for GD. GD, you have wide acquaintance ! friends are all over the world !! amazing !!
Glee said they wanted to do cover of BB's songs in drama. I'm so glad !! look forward to it !! Fans enjoyed Lives freely today !

and this picture ! it's a pic during Live. do I not look like Chumabuki Satosi a bit?^__^ Sorry, Chumabuki Fans

Big Bang draws throngs to impressive North American debut at Honda Center

Posted: 04 Nov 2012 06:00 AM PST





Imagine a young group whose first-ever performance in North America plays out before a near-capacity crowd at Honda Center. That's exactly the dream-gig scenario for Big Bang, a South Korean male quintet that thrilled an audience of mostly teen girls and twentysomething fans Friday night in Anaheim.

Formed in 2006, the well-marketed troupe has been expanding its brand since returning from a two-year hiatus in 2011 intent on reaching audiences beyond its native land and Japan, where the singing and dancing K-Pop sensation has racked up plenty of hits both together and via solo projects. Now the group, the sole Asian ensemble to win the World Act prize at the MTV Europe Music Awards, is on its first world tour, visiting 25 cities in 16 countries, including China, Thailand and Indonesia, plus a stop at the U.K.'s Wembley Arena.

For just under 2½ hours Friday night, the guys in Big Bang – G-Dragon, T.O.P., Taeyang, Daesung and Seungri – plus a dozen supporting dancers and a seven-member backing band (sadly positioned high above the stage and difficult to see) delivered an energetic, bombastic performance that had fans on their feet all night, screaming and cheering for more. And when they exhausted their material, they simply performed several of the most popular songs (including "Bad Boy") again.

Like a long line of boy bands before it – from the Osmonds in the early '70s to Duran Duran in the '80s and Big Time Rush and One Direction this decade – Big Bang provides its youthful audience with a lively concert experience, evidenced by obviously thrilled fans from all over Southern California and elsewhere. Faced with only these dates or another pair in New Jersey next week, some admirers traveled from Las Vegas, Denver and further away to snap photos, hold up handmade signs proclaiming their affection for a favorite member and generally clamor for their heroes at one of these two Anaheim shows.

Among the most appealing songs of the night were the spirited dance track "Fantastic Baby" (with its "dan dan dan dan dance" chorus), the R&B-flavored "Lies" and the infectious pop of "Monster," which segued perfectly into the modern urban groove of "Feeling." In addition to the members' vocal talents, the production for this Alive Galaxy Tour 2012 – designed by Laurieann Gibson, who helped concoct Lady Gaga's Monster's Ball dazzler – showcased sharp choreography and special effects like pyrotechnics, large video screens embedded in the stage, and platforms that lifted or lowered the gang on cue, all of which added to the larger-than-life impact.

Granted, there was little in the way of originality in Big Bang's performance. But the West Coast debut proved to be a fun, well-executed show sure to please patient American fans who had waited years to see them in the flesh. And seeing as both of these Honda Center shows attracted such massive audiences, the aptly named group could soon expand its reach to more stateside points.

The bigger question – whether the group will create a more sophisticated and significant role in the musical universe, as Duran Duran ultimately did – will have to wait.

MBLAQ storms Chile with their popularity “Airport & Hotel Paralyzed”

Posted: 04 Nov 2012 03:29 AM PST



Idol group MBLAQ show explosive popularity in Chile. Following last year's Kpop MBLAQ in Brazil, they continue to show their popularity in Chile.

MBLAQ on the first of this month to attend KBS "Music Bank in Chile" arrive in Chile's Santiago International Airport. On the day of arrival to greet MBLAQ, seas of thousands of fans gathered together. MBLAQ's appearance caused the airport to become paralyzed.

The explosive response from the fans continued to the hotel. MBLAQ went from the airport to Santiago's Sheraton Hotel where roughly 100 fans were gathered causing the boys to take more than 20 minutes to get off from their car to the lobby.

After entering the hotel, fans did not leave but shouted "MBLAQ" until the members came out from the terrace of the hotel. In addition, members' appearance at the outdoor pool caused explosive roar.

MBLAQ's friendly fan service also gained Chilean fans to become more excited. In particular, MBLAQ member Lee Joon prepared a Chile flag and posed for the camera with it over his chest as he made his appearance to the fans at the airport. Mir also waved several times to the fans that waited at the hotel to convey his greeting from the terrace of the hotel.

Their high popularity in Chile is no surprise. On October 26 MBLAQ's Chile fans held a large-scale event in the middle of downtown Santiago where approximately 1,000 fans watched MBLAQ's "Mona Lisa" and "This is War" MV in celebration of MBLAQ's arrival.

In addition, MBLAQ last year in Brazil also showed their popularity when visiting San Paulo,Brazil in September of 2011 which also paralyzed the hotel and airports. In addition, in the local program "Leitura Dinamica" on TV Beja compares Justin Beiber and MBLAQ.

MBLAQ plans to have their comeback in the first half of 2013.

Hot K-pop group 2NE1 surprise fans at ‘mystery’ gig at Clarke Quay

Posted: 04 Nov 2012 02:46 AM PST



Popular Korean pop quartet 2NE1 surprised about 2,000 local fans on Friday night when they appeared on a makeshift stage at Clarke Quay to perform five songs.

SingTel, which organised the concert at Read Bridge, had kept the group's identity a secret until just past 7pm when the four girls popped up on stage.

But some fans had speculated that the performers were 2NE1 when the foursome – Lee Chaerin, 21, better known as CL; lead vocalist Park Bom, 28; vocalist Park Sandara, 27; and rapper Gong Minji, 18, better known as Minzy – were spotted earlier shopping at Marina Bay Sands.

Still, it was a treat to have their suspicions confirmed, said 2NE1 fans.

K-pop group 2NE1 gave a surprise performance in Clarke Quay on Friday night, as part of SingTel's new brand campaign to celebrate its transformation into a multimedia and infocomm company, and going beyond telco services. The performance could be viewed on giant screens around town such as Knightsbridge, and through their Amazapp mobile app.

BTOB’s Interview with EPOP Malaysia

Posted: 04 Nov 2012 02:20 AM PST



Q: BTOB is known as a multi-talented group.
Changseob: That's because we can play instruments other than singing and dancing. I learned to play piano and drum since I was in Grade 3 in high schools. Eunkwang and Hyunsik know how to play piano too

Q: You like to look at the mirror?
Eunkwang: I didn't like to look at the mirror after I put on my makeup. The members said I am someone who didn't like to take care of my appearance but lately I look at the mirror a lot (laughs)

Q: How did you got the nickname 'Arrogant Ilhoon'?
Ilhoon: Maybe because I looked arrogant on TV. Actually I am not. Lots of people said I looked like Yong Junhyung BEAST. But I am grateful because this means they looked on me.

Q: What are your aims?
Minhyuk: I want to be the first person that people would think of when they heard 'BTOB'. Compared to an older fans, I am more popular with the younger fans. Maybe because I looked younger than my real age.

Q: Were you able to suit yourself with the lives in Korea?
Peniel: I came from Chicago. I went to Korea for the sake of being a singer. Before this I never thought of going to Korea. For the sake of learning korean, I watched lots of dramas. But it's still hard for me to fit in with the culture. I am always confused with the formal words especially when I met the sunbaes.

Q: Has anyone ever said that you looked like Seo In Guk?
Sungjae: Yup. Not long before this I took a picture with him at the hair saloon. He looks more handsome in reality. But lots of people also said I looked like Lee Min Ki sunbae. I feel so happy because both of them is a great sunbae.
