[The New Paper] Fantastic big bang

FANTASTIC Baby.

That’s the title of Big Bang’s latest chart-topping electro dance track, but it could very well be an emphatic reaction to the superstar boy band’s resounding comeback.

Arguably K-pop’s most stylish R&B quintet – its members go by funky monikers G-Dragon, Taeyang, T.O.P, Daesung and Seungri – Big Bang has the vocal chops, nifty dance moves, cutting-edge fashion sense, and now, glowing statistics to boot.

Not only has their new mini-album Alive reached double platinum status (two million copies sold) in Taiwan, it has made a major splash in the West, coming in at No. 150 on the US Billboard 200 charts.

It marks the first time in K-pop history that a Korean-language album has successfully entered the Billboard 200 charts.
