Big Bang TOP's Curated Auction Garners $17M, Draws Criticisms From Experts

Big Bang's TOP debuts as an international curator today and holds his first solo auction in Hong Kong with an impressive total sales of approximately 17 million US dollars.

TOP curated and introduced several pieces of Western and Asian Contemporary arts at tonight's Sotheby auction in Hong Kong showcasing his knowledge and passion in arts. Although successful, TOP debuting as curator draws criticisms from curator experts.

In an interview with The Korea Times, curator Sam Bardaouil comments,

"I think people will be very upset if I am working as a curator and then I compete in the Olympics in Germany's swimming team. I think this is the same analogy, really,"
"I think when you do something for a very long time in your life, you'd just know what you are doing.
"Being a curator is really hard work and you need to study and read a lot and think a lot before you comment about it. A lot of curators are also quite easy and superficial, but it is really bad actually. You need to really know and think and be sure what you are saying."
Meanwhile, TOP is openly displaying his interest in arts on his SNS and fans are expressing that they are very proud of his new-found career. Read the full interview and article from The Korea Times.

YG Cancels Big Bang's 10th Anniversary Guerilla Concert

Today, YG Entertainment puts up a notice about the cancellation of Big Bang's "Guerilla Concert" which is supposed to take place this week.

According to the official statement, the cancellation is due to the leakage of information regarding the venue and safety issues. YG explains that they are in the process of reserving an ideal venue but the media and other outside sources got hold of the information.

In regard to this, the essence of a surprise concert is meaningless and the agency and Big Bang members are anxious about the security due to the influx of fans. Therefore, they made a decision to ultimately cancel the guerilla concert, an event to commemorate Big Bang's 10th year anniversary.

Meanwhile, YG and Big Bang are planning another event to celebrate the special occasion so VIPs have nothing to worry about.
