Message from YG [2009.11.12] [Korean-English Translation]

2009-11-12   9:32:20 am

Hi, it’s Yang Hyun Suk here. Take a bow~

I’m here today for the news of Tae Yang’s solo album.

Tae Yang’s second digital single

<Wedding Dress>

Tomorrow (11/13) Tae Yang’s second digital single “Wedding Dress” is about to release.

“Wedding Dress” is the song that Tae Yang co-wrote with Teddy. It’s not on the TV as “Where U At”. We plan to promote this song until the end of 2009 and the MV directed by Mr. Jang Jae Hyeok will be expecting to air tomorrow.


Fans are waiting in anxiety for the release of this album. Many news that came out before have created a little confusion.

Speaking of the release of “Where U At” digital single went into silence and did not get enough promotional broadcasting.

And to the release of “Wedding Dress” without the public preview also went disappeared.

I’m sure that there are a lot of complaints on these matters.


The Artist and YG are working hard for the album with desire and the fans all want to know more to come on all that.

But according to the less amount of the off-line music sales than last year….

I don’t think it is easy now to release the album on-line today at the same time in this situation.


It’s hard to reach for No.1 on the weekly music chart. Keeping the listeners from not walking out on you today is hard enough. They swiftly shift the way they listen to a song.

The influence of both on-line and off-line music affects the TV people’s choice of a comeback artist with a brand new song.


Like 2NE1, who have got lots of love from their first mini-album, are not in the plan of the follow-up promotional activities for it.

You can say that G-Dragon’s “Heartbreaker,” “Breathe” and “A Boy” follow-up activities which got a short period in broadcasting is like the whole promotion of the entire album.

That’s why we make 4 PVs for it.


Tae Yang requests his album promotion period to last longer depending on the activities in the progress that we plan to do.

It’s like what they do in the typical American way of releasing a single first and then follows by the studio album.

The only different is you’ll have one hit single first and then the title track together with the album.

Let’s say, “Where U At” is the first track of this album, marking the starting point of it all and

then “Wedding Dress” to follow suit.

It’s going to be kick-ass!


Tae Yang’s promotional activities are set.

Last month the foreign choreographers came to Korea not to brainstorm on “Where U At” but for the steps of “Wedding Dress.”


Tae Yang’s comeback after one year and a half is just around the corner.

We put a lot of effort into it and look forward to a good feedback.

I want all the fans to show us your support.


I’m supposed to be here for the Tae Yang news.

But I’ll give you some short news on 2NE1 and G-Dragon.



Park Bom never stops smiling since her “You And I” gets such a good feedback.

Even when I get angry at or pressure her, she only keeps smiling.


The bad news is we have to postpone the release of their album to next year

And we cannot hold their concert on December 30-31.

That’s because we figured it out that we haven’t had enough songs to do so.


Then the good news is that we will have a surprise show on November 20

And I won’t go in details because it’s a surprise.


We know that you’re curious, but be patient, it won’t be that long.



He will have the concerts at The Olympic Park on December 5-6.

So, he will stop all the broadcasting activities to focus on his practice.

“G-Dragon” will hold a surprise event next month.

All I can tell is that all the ladies will love to do so.


I’ll be back next time.

Coming up next are Se7en and Gommi new albums0


Good-bye, everyone….Take a bow~ (Young Bae~ Hwaiting!)


2009. 11. 12.






VIPs, we know you’re complaining YG’s artist promo strategies on YB, but be patient; the album’ll be as hot as YB himself! The six pack abs to rule K-Pop!





Japanese-English Radio Excerpt of BIGBANG on Kira Kira★Time Fm Yokohama 84.7 on 09/11/08

Original in Japanese byみーまま

Japanese – English translation by Pinky.PK* exclusively for *Team.BIGBANG*

Please DO NOT use this Excerpt to make subtitles.

If repost, please DO NOT remove this line and all of the lines stated above.


BIGBANG went to 「KIRA KIRA HOUSE」of Yokohama FM.

YB also took the mobile phone charm as a little souvenir from the program.

The name of the radio show is “Kira Kira” (or “Glittering” in English)


DJ Aja: Can you tell us the title of a song that’s Kira Kira?

YB: I’ve been listening to Michael Jackson’s Human Nature.


The program then played Human Nature.


DJ: Thing that’s Kira Kira?

T.O.P: My ring. It always reminds me of my family.


DJ: What’s your most favorite word in Japanese?

YB: Ebisu and Meguro (the tube stations on JR East Yamanote Line (山手線), Tokyo Central Line) and Yoshinoya (the gyudon (beef bowl) restaurant located at every tube station.)

T.O.P: Ikuradesuka. (How much?)

GD: Bacchishi (Impeccable)

SR: Barabara. (Disharmony/scattering) and Goro Goro (the sound of a rolling big object). Do you think that the Japanese vocabulary in a form of word repetition sound so interesting?


DJ: The secret of making the MV?

YB: Nothing is a secret there. It’s a grassland, lots of grass, I mean! Such a really great scenery. Fact is, it’s sort of inconvenience making the MV because there were tons of insects! Wondering why there were so many of them in that spring time!?


The program played「声をきかせて」Club Remix as a background music.


DJ: The most delicious Korean dish?

GD: It’s Gukbap (or クッパ (kuppa in Japanese) it’s a soup with rice)

DJ: That sounds so sexy!


The program is updating the group pix of them. So, check it out!



G-Dragon’s recollection with Seo Tai-ji & Boys and his own self in Inkigayo

Fauxhawk can be awesome if you have it at the right time with the right person (forget the oldie Uncle David Beckham). Outstanding “The Initial G” hoodie. Kilt’s back. A tribute military tee to Michael Jackson with 1958-2009 written on the back of it? Ultra cool. Now we already dig those Ji Yong’s weekly messages in keeping “The King of Pop” alive in his appearance. What a touching remark!

We heart the today’s show. Super fantastic. Not a SpongeBob dance anymore. Ji Yong finally fits in his backup dancers for this particular song, so he kept on playing with the Inkigayo teasing camera’s angles, shone a light with his flawless white tooth and never stopped smiling since he got sandwiched by Seungri and T.O.P at the Incheon World City Festival yesterday. Glad to be back as a bunch of five, Kwon Leader? Or backstage chit-chat went on so well with your BFF, Young Bae? Just curious!

Most of all, we know that he’s not alone as what he continually confesses in many recent interviews. The solo career can be a horrible lonesomeness experience for someone who is more familiar with the BIGBANG way for years . We hope that you have someone you can always count on.

Considering one more pooch?
