Big Bang’s G-Dragon caught doing marijuana….

*sigh* them Koreans are becoming more like them Westerners.

It’s just been reported that Big Bang‘s leader G-Dragon has been caught by authorities for smoking marijuana.

We indicted G-Dragon on the charges of smoking marijuana,” said a representative for the Seoul police on October 5th.

According to investigators, G-Dragon had smoked marijuana sometime in the middle of May this year, and had taken a drug test in July. Although the results had come back negative with an initial urine test, further tests overturned that decision, and he had confessed at the time that he had been taking the drug at a Japanese club when he had visited the country for a concert.

“I smoked a cigarette that someone had given me at a club,” G-Dragon said. “The smell was somewhat different from that of a regular cigarette so I was slightly suspicious that it was marijuana, but it is true that I smoked it,” he said.

According to investigators, since the amount of marijuana was so small and G-Dragon had no prior offences, they decided to give him a warning.

2011 has finally opened up, and Inkigayo promises to be another fun and exciting show filled with amazing performances from the top singers of Korea.

GD & TOP’s “Knock Out” banned from SBS, KBS, and MBC~

‘Knock Out’ banned from all three public broadcasting networks~!

Does anyone else get the impression that YG has been getting Big Bang to copy the American Music industry? Their song lyrics, raps, music videos, and concerts are turning more and more provocative, and well… Western-like. I read the lyrics below, and sure, it uses words not commonly used in polite little Korea. But it’s honestly not that innapropriate.
*sigh* I just think this is karma… for trying to be more Western like and getting critisized for it =|

GD&TOP’s third title track, “Knock Out“, has been banned from all three public broadcasting networks.

KBS, MBC, and SBS stated that the reason for the ban was because the title and lyrics used slang, which they believed would damage the national psyche.  The song itself has been popular on music charts, and news of the song’s ban quickly became a controversy amongst Continue reading

Following up quickly with performances of “High High” and “Oh Yeah” (feat. 2NE1’s Park Bom), the two have built up an anticipation so wired that one spark could throw the entire industry in flames.

Their first full-length album and concept photos were released today, and we’ve combined the two releases into a formidable double-hit. But first, a little background on the tracks!

Their title track, “Bbeokigayo,” boasts unique lyrics like “Even the coffee names they sell in corner stores are T.O.P,” and “No matter what I throw on, I’m photoshoot ready.”

GD & TOP’s album recieves over 200,000 pre-orders~

Pre-orders come flying in for GD & TOP’s new collaboration album~

It’s become one of the most anticipated releases of the year, and recently, YG Entertainment provided a figure to show how big GD&TOP’s debut album could be.

They revealed to Money Today Star News, “The duo’s first album will be released offline on the 24th. As of today, the 22nd, we are surprised to have already received 200,000 pre-orders. This is more than the pre-orders of any past Big Bang album. The window for pre-orders is open until the 23rd, and we expect the sales figure to increase.”

The incredible response to GD&TOP’s unit album is credited to the pre-release of the singles “High High” and “Oh Yeah”, in addition to their SBS “Inkigayo” performance.

It’s also been a long wait for Big Bang fans, as it’s been quite a while since members of the group collaborated to deliver a non-solo release.
