[NEWS] Big Bang in Singapore's Magazine (8 Days)


Big Bang's Big Year
Comeback kids, Big Bang, are back with a new disc, Alive.
Here's why it's a career milestone for the Korean hip-hop maestros.


1. THEY'RE BOUNCING BACK FROM ADVERSITY
2011 was a rough year for Big Bang - Daesung was charged and later acquitted of running down a motorcyclist in a hit-and-run; G-Dragon was caught smoking pot. Instead of being damned to obscurity, both earned sympathy points for braving through the scandals. They returned to the studios like industrious idols and churned out the aptly-titled Alive.

2. THIS IS THEIR FIRST ALBUM AS A FULL GROUP OF GIVE IN TWO YEARS
Okay, so singing about being bad boys in 'Bad Boys' on your redemptive return doesn't exactly sound like a good idea. But scratch beneath the surface of the R&B-driven Alive and you'll hear that the boys are a little more sombre and grown up.

3. THE WORLD IS WATCHING
They're embarking on their very first world tour - yes, their solo concert will travel out of Seoul for the first time in their seven-year career. There are whispers that they might make a pit-stop here, so fans should keep their fingers crossed.
