"Big Bang: Blowing up."
K-pop sensation Big Bang’s latest video is fantastic, baby
The boy band genre may be slowly fading in North America, but over in Asia, one act is blowing up all over the place.
If you haven’t yet heard of K-pop sensation Big Bang, an ultra-stylized five-piece boy band from South Korea, chances are you will hear about them a whole lot more in the near future.
Consisting of G-Dragon, Taeyang, T.O.P., Daesung and Seungri, Big Bang has been active since 2006 and has released various EPs that helped it break into the Japanese market.
The group’s latest “mini album” Alive was released in February, and single Fantastic Baby has garnered over eight million views on YouTube since it was released just 10 days ago.
It doesn’t hurt that Fantastic Baby is easily one of the most colourfully twisted pop videos we’ve seen in a while, combining RPG style art, riot gear, steampunk elements and street pop swagger.
Rumours abound concerning a worldwide tour, so keep your ears peeled.
