Posted April 25, 2012 by

Idol group Big Bang is preparing to wrap up promotions for their mini-album, ‘ALIVE‘.

Their agency YG Entertainment remarked, “Big Bang will be wrapping up promotions for their mini-album ‘ALIVE’ with a final performance on April 29th’s SBS ‘Inkigayo‘ and will be focusing on their Japan Tour.”

Big Bang began their activities for this mini-album by kicking off their first World Tour performance in Seoul this past March, and the boys have broken numerous records since.

The group coined each track on their album as title songs, and all the tracks claimed the #1 through #7 spots on various music charts, receiving an explosive reaction from the fans.

Their track “Fantastic Baby” has proved to be a fan favorite, as it still remains within the top 10 on the charts, even after 2 months of being released. Their album has sold an impressive number of over 270,000 copies, more than any other album released this year.

‘ALIVE’ also broke the top 200 on Billboard without participating in any separate promotions or releasing an English version of the album. Big Bang also became the first Korean artist to have a photo of their performance be showcased on the main page of the Grammy Awards website.

Big Bang also visited Taiwan for the very first time, and their songs climbed to the #1 spot on 8 different Taiwanese music charts, and during their Seoul concert, Big Bang also broke a record for drawing the most Japanese attendees in the history of concert performances.

Once Big Bang conclude promotions for ‘ALIVE’, they will be shifting their focus on their World Tour which will first take them to five cities in Japan this May, performing for 150,000 of their Japanese fans.
