Fanchants for Korean Music Wave Singapore

Dear SGVIPs attending Korean Music Wave [Singapore]

Despite the tough situation Big Bang is in due to DaeSung’s accident, GD & TOP, Taeyang and Seungri still kept their promise and will be performing for us at Korean Music Wave. We must show our support through our fanchants. Here’s a guide on how SG VIPs can chant during their performances. We must show them that they are very well loved in Singapore, so please learn the lyrics to the songs and their respective chants.

Download link for fanchant:

Note: The words in red are those that we need to chant alongside them. You may view their broadcast performances for more reference.

Let’s make Korean Music Wave a memorable one for Big Bang so that they would love to come back to Singapore again, this time with all five of them :)

Big Bang Photo Set Giveaway Winner!

First of all, thanks everyone for participating! I wasn't expecting so many comments (180 in total, excluding repeats & questions) but I thoroughly enjoyed reading every single one of them! It was a hard decision to make because there were a lot of really good ones. I felt like I was actually there at the amusement park watching these imitations come alive! I chose the winner based on their creativity and how much the entry made me laugh, so props to Gabby Pikachurr-Omg! I thought it was funny that the rest of the members seemed to be scattered around the park and I can totally see your bias do everything you a heartbeat!

GD & TOP Album Launch in the Philippines

Manila, Philippines – March 5, 2011 is the day dedicated to Filipino VIPs as it is the day for the GD & TOP album launch. The album launch happened in 3 of the biggest malls in the Philippines: Astroplus The Block, Astroplus Mall of Asia and Odyssey Megamall. The event started at 10 am and lasts up until the mall closes. Fans started lining up as soon as the mall opened. As time passed by, the line started to get longer.

Wanna Go to YG Building? Follow Me!!

If you have a chance to go to Seoul, you will hear the whisper inside you that says “Go to YG building. Go to YG building”
And you will have to fight with yourself because you are so busy with your schedule and it is not like you are going to meet anybody there. You will fight with yourself for awhile.
Eventually, the whisper inside you will win. Just like my whisper won. Hahaaaa
If you don’t know how to go there here is your direction.

Hear Our Voices: A G-Dragon Project

Sent in by Char of Very apt since we know that GD isn't currently feeling well ^^

Since GD worked so hard on the GD&TOP album for us, I thought it would be cool if we created an album for him! However, we need help from other VIPs in order for this project to work. :) You will be able to submit a shout-out message and any drawings, designs, photos, etc. to help contribute to the project.

Please take the time to read the guidelines below and be sure to check out the FAQ section at the bottom.

Big Show 2011 Thread

Hey guys, I know that a lot of you have questions regarding BB's upcoming concert related to ticketing/booking, etc. so I'm making this thread so we can "discuss" tips and whatnots about the concert.

Some of the members of our team are planning to watch too and since we're first-timers, we're also clueless about lots of stuff. So far, the purchasing dates for the tickets have been released and that online selling will be via G-Market:

Fri, 25th February 2011 concert --> Tue, 18th January 2011, 8PM
Sat, 26th February 2011 concert --> Wed, 19th January 2011, 8PM
Sun, 27th February 2011 concert --> Thu, 20th January 2011, 8PM

To get the ball rolling, I guess those who have questions can post what they want to ask on the comments section and hopefully those who have already attended YG concerts in Korea can share their experiences and answer some of the questions ;)

[Will update this post when more info come in. Thanks!]
