I really like Big Bang even though I’m years to late To be a VIP as I was 27 when they debuted but I have too say I love the songs and I really love Taeyangs singing too he’s got a beautiful voice. Great guy really humble really talented they all are and he is a role model and so genuine and charming. He is my fave in the group also g dragon as well I wasn’t expecting to like this sort of music but I did. Cannot stop listening too them I can see why they have so many k pop idol fans. They paved the way for other younger idol groups and many look uptoo to these guys.
Not surprising. They are loved by the general public. No matter if they come back or not. Even other celebrities call G-Dragon the celebrity of celebrities. I hope kpoppies who say Bigbang is irrelevant saw those articles. Must be painful for them
