K-Pop group Big Bang’s “2014 BIG- BANG + a CONCERT IN SEOUL” DVD will be released in both Korea and Japan on July 2. The DVD, which contains footage from Big Bang’s Seoul concert from this past January, features songs including “Fantastic Baby” as well as the group’s other hits. Big Bang met with 36,000 fans during their recent Seoul concert. Footage from the DVD is expected to make the viewer feel as though they’re actually at the performance.
At the concert, Big Bang member G-Dragon hinted that they would be releasing a new album soon, giving fans more news to be excited about. G-Dragon has reportedly been composing and producing for the group’s new album since March, according to Fuse TV. The album will be EDM and R&B-centric, a similar sound to the group’s previous tracks. The others in the popular 5-member idol group are currently busy with individual promotions.
Taeyang is set to release his solo album on June 2. Although very little details have been released regarding the R&B singer’s upcoming album, there is speculation that it might be titled “Rise.”
So far, one poster with Taeyang’s name and the word “Rise” has been released to promote the singer’s new album. T.O.P is currently preparing for his photobook exhibit set which will begin on June 4 and last until June 7 in Seoul. Fellow Big Bang member Seung Ri launched his acting career with a role in the SBS drama “Angel Eyes.”
He also made an appearance on the Japanese drama “Detective Kindaichi,” which is set to air in Korea as well. Daesung has been preparing to release a new solo album in Japan on July 16.
