Facts you didn’t know about BIGBANG

Many Western music listeners haven't ever even heard of South Korea's wildly popular, BIGBANG. However, the 5 member group has sold out concerts across the world and their fans, called VIPs, have religiously followed them since their debut with YG Entertainment in 2006. With multiple awards under their belt, including MTV Europe Music Award for Best Worldwide Act, BIGBANG is taking their talent to a whole new level. Their songs are catchy and unique, followed by music videos that are creative and edgy, with genius concepts and effects. When BIGBANG hits the mainstream Western scene, there will be no stopping them.
