Idol Group Big Bang to Offer 'Big Show'

Iconic boy band Big Bang had a busy year in 2008, and the five-member group is staging a concert titled "Big Show" to celebrate the New Year and thank fans.

Comprised of TOP (Choi Seung-hyun), Victory, G-Dragon, Dae-sung and Tae-yang, the group will perform at the Olympic Park Gymnastics Stadium, one of the biggest concert venues in Seoul.

The group's reputation for bringing hoards of fans to their concerts is nothing new, and it's been proven once again that Big Bang is still one of the top idol groups in the business.

The three-day concert tickets were sold through Internet Web site G Market, with more than 200,000 fans logging on to buy tickets when the sales opened, with more than 180,000 fans doing the same during the second stage.

Big Bang originally planned on holding three concerts ― one on Jan. 31 and two the following day ― but after fans demanded more, the group's agency, YG Entertainment, decided to hold another on Jan. 30.

With further Internet ticket bookings planned for Jan. 6, the agency estimated that more than 52,000 fans will appear at the concert venue, bringing them a whopping 4 billion won in revenue.

Some members will work individually as solo artists this year and some will appear on entertainment shows, so the series of concerts will be a memorable moment for fans to see the group perform together on stage. According to YG Entertainment, the stage was built according to a design that looks like the letters "BB", representing Big Bang.

The group debuted in 2006, led by former hit pop group Seo Taiji and Boys' member Yang Hyun-suk. The group made it big mainly with self-produced songs, and its first single, "Big Bang", was produced by G-Dragon. Success came again with the group's second album, "Remember", in November, and the talented members started to branch out and pursue personal dreams such as releasing solo albums, acting and even appearing on stage.

Big Bang will perform at the "Big Show" from Jan. 30 to Feb. 1 at the Gymnastics Stadium, Olympic Park. All tickets cost 66,000 won. For more information, visit Open the link
