G Dragon is eyeing f(x)'s Sulli?
With their new title song NU ABO, f(x) is definitely shining under the
spotlight! Their popularity is undoubtedly due to each of the member’s
own charm as well.
f(x)’s Sulli’s $100,000 smile has become the new hot topic. Being only 16 years old, her eye smile has appealed to the general audience and celebrities alike. Singer/songwriter Yoon Jong Shin admitted through a broadcast of liking her, and even Big Bang’s G-dragon has confessed that among the recent idol groups that have debuted he is keeping an eye out for Sulli.

BIGBANG 「BSX」 World Cup Poster
BIGBANG member G-Dragon and T.O.P‘s appearance attracted some attention.
BIGBANG appeared in public for a long time last May 29 during the MTV VMAJ to attend the award ceremony.
Leader of BIGBANG, G-Dragon, still look stylish but somehow he was like missing some weights. Netizens literally called it ‘apple face.’
Coming in June with his movie film, Into the Gunfire, T.O.P appeared in the awards night with a sleek jaw line. The little changes with his looks captivated attentions.
Some fans commented, “G-Dragon’s face is indeed thin”, “I’m not suprised”, “Why is he losing weight…Are you dieting?”
BIGBANG won a total of 3 trophies at MTV VMAJ.

Interview VMAJ 2010 [ENG SUBBED]
at MTV Live (100531)
I guess the whole stadium was occupied by Big Bang fans. When they started
singing 'Number 1', the crowd became excited immediately. G-dragon was
hyper-active during the performance. I was a bit relieved as he was in a better
mood compared to their Electric Love Tour.
- The song they sang after 'Gara Gara Go!!' was 'Number 1'. When other artists were performing, the hall was colourfully lit by red, blue, white and yellow penlights. However, as soon as Big Bang entered the stage, all other colours disappeared and turned into yellow lights.
- Well, Since Big Bang rarely have schedules in Japan, all of their fans must be gathering together for tonight's event.
- Big Bang hi-jacked the concert till the end of the Encore setion.There were only yellow lights left and Big Bang sang way too many songs. (Smile)
- G-Dragon was laughing throughout the concert and running in a Kin-San fashion. (Adopted from the unique running style of Japanese Entertainer Kin san, a special way of running with one's heels.) SOL's dance moves were more exaggerated compared to usual. Other members also seemed happy, probably because they'd just won 2 awards at VMAJ 2010. V.I. who grabbed the MC post from SOL and D-Lite was so adorable!! (Smile)
-During V.I's Talk, he said, 'This year Big Bang would have separate schedules for each of the members.'
SOL: A solo album is on the way! It will be released once they make their Korean come back.
T.O.P: 'Into the Fire' will start screening.
D.Lite: Acting in a Korean Drama.
G-Dragon: Producing Big Bang's new album.
I could not remember the details so the above was just a brief summary.But did V.I forget to introduce his own plans...(Sigh) (He actually did talk about the screening of the movie 'Ninteen')
- Every member shared their coming events in Japanese. T.O.P who has not yet mastered Japanese tried very hard to speak japanese to his fans. Though his Japanese was not so fluent, he gave the longest speech!!(smile) Only G-dragon made V.I to help him introduce his future plans and concluded the talk with 'Ganbarimasu!' (Fighting!)

tweets about Big Bang
ryu_winds: Just now V.I. (Seungri) has introduced me his friends, a Korean Band called FT Island. They seem to have activities in Japan as well. They are awesome! Their POP is really backed up by their Band basics.

ryu_winds: C.N. Blue, Big Bang, Kara and 2NE1, these are the leading musicians in the K-POP field nowadays. However, it seems that their performances can seldom be seen via Japanese TV programs or music scenes. Though I am not very familiar with them, I am impressed by their performances and enjoy watching their shows. Why isn't there any similar Japanese Musician TV programs?

And another tweet from a producer from Tiny Voice, which was RT-ed by Ryu and Keita of W-inds. I'm not really familiar with him but he posted the backstage pic of Big Bang @ MTV Live posted here: http://www.bigbangupdates.com/2010/05/big-...0530-photo.html
ryosukeimai: Big Bang is great! (Compared to them,) Japanese productions have similar spirits of creativity. Yet the weakness of Japanese music is that, for the sake of sales results, Big Bang-style music would hardly be promoted as mainstream music in Japan. I believe it is finally the time to correct Japanese Entertainment Culture that reflected the legacy of Showa Period (1926–1989).

Flo Rida “G-Dragon has a good understanding of Western music”c:aleeexGD
American hip-hop singer Flo Rida gave public praise to Big Bang’s leader G-Dragon.
On May 29th on Mnet media ‘pop con’ Flo Rida stated “Through this exclusive interview I’ll give an honest statement on how it was working with G-Dragon.”
Through this interview Flo Rida stated “I was lucky to work with G-Dragon.” “He has a tendency of understanding western music really well as well as Korean [music], and he even composed English lyrics, he is a brilliant friend.”
It’s so good to see american artists recognizing G-Dragon’s talents and to go as far as to say “I was lucky to work with G-Dragon” is a huge compliment! ^__^ I’m happy he is getting recognized, the boy most definitely deserves it! a slap in the face to the antis XDD
