Big Bang to shoot new MV in New York + YG talks about Big Bang's comeback and solo plans starting with Daesung [NEWS]

Shared by on February 8, 2012  

Yang Hyunsuk, producer and CEO of YG Entertainment, who just celebrated their 15th anniversary, remembers 2011 as a very difficult year. Daesung and G-Dragon, two friends who he has been taking care of since they were young, got involved in some troubles. Even though they're better now, Yang admits that at that time, it was really difficult.

"Last year was the worst year for us. They were friends who I took care of from when they were 13, and even I, found it difficult. Those were my thoughts as a parent. When I was running YG for 15 years, I wanted to give the kids a lot of freedom. However, I started finding restriction important too."

He says that since these never happened during his days with "Seotaeji and Boys", he found it hard to handle. But what happened already happened and he had to quickly admit that and get over it. As YG said himself, he both disciplined and supported BIGBANG like a parent or an uncle, rather than an older brother, and that's why he feels the most guilt towards BIGBANG."

"Not only did I learn a lot, I feel BIGBANG did too. Last year, BIGBANG hardly went outside and just stayed together in the studio, making them closer to each other. If nothing happened, they probably would have spent more time outside the studio and not show this much determination. It became an extremely bitter, but the best medicine. Most singers find it difficult to stay together for 5 years but with them, time only made them stronger."

YG has high hopes for BIGBANG this year. He plans to put all his energy into BIGBANG, who has been announced to do a World Tour.

"As a producer, I think that the whole world is watching now. When creating content, I want to be more detailed and spend a lot of energy into the music video as well."

BIGBANG will soon be going to New York to shoot a music video. They will be spending a lot of money to make it grand-scaled. Though YG has been careful about spending a lot of money, it's time for BIGBANG to take off again so he won't be too careful this time. YG has always been focused on quality over quantity. From 1TYM, BIG MAMA, SE7EN, BIGBANG and 2NE1, YG has always been very confident about their music. This is one of the reasons why he kept BIGBANG back while all other companies were having hallyu-concerts around the world.

YG states, "If we see the news or TV today, you see Kpop stars going out and having concerts outside of Korea. I don't want to do that with BIGBANG." His theory is that "the service of going to them will not work, we have to make them come to us." This time, his plan is to make a lot of good content and promote it well through a variety of sources.

Here, he began speaking about what fans are the most curious about: BIGBANG's comeback and world tour.

"BIGBANG's biggest asset is that even though they shine when they are together, they can also bring out their own solo albums. So I think of BIGBANG as six teams, not just one team." YG said that BIGBANG is both "together but separate", and Daesung, who had gone through the most pain, will be the first to release his solo album.

This year, starting with the Korean concerts in March, they plan to have a flawless world tour, within the first half of 2012 in Japan and Asia, then in the latter half in Europe, North America and South America. But YG won't forget about quality, either. YG said "In a stage, sound, lights and video are the most important. People in Korea tend to work separately so we used a lot of Japanese staff, but this time we are working with LIVE NATION, a US company." LIVE NATION is a performance company that has worked with Beyonce and Lady Gaga.

He said that BIGBANG is not one team, but six teams. There is BIGBANG, then Daesung, Seungri, G-Dragon, TOP, Taeyang. They focus when they're working on their solo albums, but also focus during tours for all of them, and they plan to help with both these sides. "We plan to start solos with Daesung. I want all the scars he got last year to be washed away soon." YG is family, and as the head of the house, this is the kind of thoughtful care he will give.

  • xin wei

    YES YG THANK YOU FOR FINALLY PAYING ATTENTION TO DAESUNGIE ;U; cannot wait. cannot wait at all. it's gonna be a busy year! IVIPS UNITE!

  • ♛ V ♛ I ♛ P♛

    First it was Vegas and now NEW YORK! I'm excited to see their MV!! OMG! :) I'm excited for Daesung's solo album!! About time!! =) I'm sure GD and Taeyang solo albums will be in the summer and then TOP and Seungri at the end of the year? Wow busy year for BIGBANG, no doubt! I will be supporting all five solo and as BIGBANG! I can't wait to go see them live in concert!! Such an exciting year! =)

  • Nicia

    Big Bang increase in activities is going to be hell on my wallet, but I regret nothing!! We deserve it <3 

    Jealous of NYVIPs ;_; make sure to get some pics & fancams if you can!

  • DS

    what did i read? daesung solo album, OMG.Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
    daesung daesung daesung daesung

  • VVIPforSeungRi

    Oh wow. It seems 2012 really will be BB's year, and it looks like a lot of work. I mean, there's gonna be promotions in both Korean and Japan, plus BIGSHOW/JAPAN TOUR/WORLD TOUR. And then each of them are gonna have a solo album. I'm actually so excited for Daesung's album, it's been a long time coming. There's actually so much to look forward to, it's crazy. Non-stop BIGBANG.

    And one reason why I applaud YG is that BB is a group that can each be solo as well as a group, as YG said. Even when BB isn't promoting, there are solo albums, and he lets EVERYONE have a turn, not just "the most talented", like other groups. Which means so much music for us fans!

    I'm glad for YG's focus on Daesung tbh. I mean, it's gonna be hard to be up on stage alone right after the scandal and face haters on his own, he'll gain confidence back and finally allow him to go solo after all this time.

    Though I'm pretty sure the packed schedule + 2NE1 in America means debuting his new groups in Korea without competition. xD


    GOD! I love YG! I've been waiting for Dae's album for the passed 6 years! TT.TT I can't wait to get my hands off that album.


    Smiling angels stans  <333

  • Gloria Caballero

    It was both. Vegas and LA. The beach scene was LA and of course the rest was Vegas. 8)

  • Ann


    What more can I ask for? Indeed 8th February was a great day. I cannot stop smiling like a stupid girl haha

  • rollingpin

    This is the best news I've heard all day! Really hope Korea will show Daesung a lot of love and that the antis don't come out and make his life harder. But I really feel now that they are closer and that no matter what happens the members will have each other's back. When solo promotions come, I can imagine the other members coming down each time to give support and strength because they're a team, and as awful as 2011 has been I think it'll become that catalyst and driving force for them to become even bigger and even more legendary. Expecting more great things ahead for the group. Fighting!

  • vipzzz

    yes please stalk big bang please pretty please , any of you new yorkers i beg and please post it on youtube ^^ try to get a little snippet of their song too ;D and their new hairdooss heheh!


     omg and about that big bang mv casting thing if it is real i wonder what it there mv is about?? big bang on skateboards chasing a girl in the park lol idk xD

  • Secret_gurl89

    can't wait for daesung solo album please..:)

  • Maroug25

    Should I be heading to NYC too?!!does it really worth it?!
    Lol!! Lucky iVIPs,before we get to see the other four member's radical transformade teasers they can actually have a glimps if they can go to the mv set and take fan pic for us who eagerly anticipating to have a sneak peak about them too..and you guys can hear the song too..if the title track is fantastic boy or blue during th mv making they play the music as a background and they act and lip sync to shoot it if you are near a the location be smart and take a vid of it..and spread it on because we wanna know too...
    Last year was in LV this NY daumm....this is gonna be something mad crazy as tonight...Dae solo,Ri,GD,TOP, this for real?!!
    Half of the year active as a group and second half as solo artists?!!
    "together but seperate" well said,how could he descibe BB more than this..
    I respect YG to be able to be a good father/CEO,caring and thoughtful man who raised his boys through some harsh and painful situations and when nobody believed tha they're gonna survive he put his heart and soul in them and they made it,survived!!!
    this is BB's year,after all the bad and good things happened to them no mater what they are coming back stronger than ever to capture our hearts...
    Bty.?it's been two days snce the 1st photo teaser came out?!!
    Actually when th hell the other ones are gonna be published..!??:@
    dying here to see my GD what looks like now Ri Tae Dae all of em ...
    I hope the radical change won't be something really ridiculous rather than the point of shocking the world with the changement and genuine make over...
    It's 6am here and I kinda sleepy so guys have fan speculating how to do your NYC spying mission..ok?!
    And plz don't forget about us who are waiting some fan srvices like pics vies and accounts:):):)Good morning sunshine VIPs..

    hope everything will be fine and smooth.

  • Debbiebisvip

    Ok, I have 3 things to say:

    1. People diss and hate on YG, but you absolutely cannot deny that the man knows how to promote his artists (take notice JYP/SME) He's smart and he knows his business, which is why he (and his artists) have so much success. Holding BB back during the hallyu wave? No other CEO would have done this except YG because he KNOWS and he UNDERSTANDS his business and his artist. He is a very clever man.

    2. A DAESUNG SOLO!? OMG OMG OMG FINALLY! I completely get why YG held Daesung back (after his troubles last year it was a very wise thing to do, had he of allowed Daesung's solo to take place and then the accident occurred, this would have had a very damaging effect on both Daesung and YG as a business. So once again, YG is a VERY astute businessman and we must never underestimate him)

    3. World tours and a video in NYC!!!!! I really only have one thing to say about this.....


    Thank you and goodnight.

  • juju

    Daesung SOLO??! yes please <33

  • Lhotshot83

    I am so very proud of Big Bang, they really went through so much, and now they are back and willing to come see all their fans outside of Korea, just to make us all happy.  Way to go Big Bang, I look forward to seeing you when you come to the US, I'll go anywhere you come, because I know you won't come anywhere near I am in Indiana.

  • lise07

    love how he said he wants people to come to see them rather than the other way round, cool story!

  • fayelfrida

    so heartwarming.. .PAPA YG!!
    we love you for making BIGBANG..special..
    love love this news.. i freakin can't wait for feb 29.. sigh* 

    im soo full loaded with my school stuffs. waa.. i need a breather. BIGBANG i need you. !!

  • Tai_do113

    ´VIPS! please don't stalk them on the place where they are going to shoot the mv.. please don't. I don't think they want to have any fans around while they are filming so just let our boys stay focus on the mv shootin'!

  • trkn91

    here is the my thoughts,i just checked the the amount of how much BB albums have been sold till this time from wikipedia.And GD's heartbreaker album has the highest rate and also his solo concert can gather thousands.Top from his first movie collect all amazing awards,he also is great composer like other BB members,Seungri has his academy,Taeyang he is the solo king whatever song he presented.Daesung not currently but,he is the variety show prince and his drama rocks.YG's first reason about BB is of course about money,he is the CEO of a company right ? So why do these boys try so hard for BIGBANG name ? why would they want to share the income,why would they want to divide the money to 5 while they already can get that much money in their solo activities ? for me BIGBANG is more beyond of meaning "idol band".I know the answers of these questions.and thats why i love them everyday more and more.And YG is the real idol for me,these words are just so fatherly.

  • dodo18

    you are so right , and that's why we love them, they don't need to be under bigbang name to be successsful but they still want to be together.

  • Iona Meehan

    YG states, "If we see the news or TV today, you see Kpop stars going out
    and having concerts outside of Korea. I don't want to do that with
    BIGBANG." His theory is that "the service of going to them will not
    work, we have to make them come to us."Wait wait wait. Does that mean that he doesn't want to promote Big Bang overseas too much? And my dreams are once again gone T__TAnyway, on a happier note, I'm happy Daesung is going to release his solo album :3 I'm so excited!! Big Bang fighting~!
