The time is now.
After teasing fans to no end, YG Entertainment has finally revealed which artiste will be making a comeback.
In case you haven’t been following them closely enough, the “Who’s Next” series first started in 2013, where they teased fans prior to their artistes’ comebacks or debuts.
The first artiste who was revealed in the “Who’s Next” series is 2NE1‘s CL who made her solo debut, “The Baddest Female“. The “Who’s Next” series was then followed by other YG artistes’ comeback including Akdong Musician,Epik High, and BIGBANG‘s Taeyang. They’ve also debuted a new sub-unit duo Hi Suhyun, made up of Lee Hi and Suhyun from Akdong Musician, as well as BIGBANG leader G-Dragon and Taeyang with their “Good Boy” collaboration.
VIPs (as BIGBANG fans are lovingly called) quickly speculated that the teasers were indicative of BIGBANG’s comeback. When so many dynamites go off at once, it’ll produce a big..bang?
The speculation is also due to the fact that in February 2015, YG Entertainment CEO Yang Hyun Suk himself revealed that all 3 of their idol boy groups e.g. BIGBANG, WINNER, and iKON, will be making their comebacks and debut consecutively one after another in the first half of this year.
So really, who’s behind the dynamite-filled “Who’s Next” teasers which were released over the course of the past week? ;)
Yes, it is indeed BIGBANG. We need to note, however, that aside from revealing that BIGBANG will be releasing new music for their long-awaited comeback, YG Entertainment also revealed several more dates to look forward to, as seen in the artwork above. Perhaps this could be an indication that BIGBANG will be releasing singles on the 1st of every month through August?
Just in case you think it’s not possible, that concept is not entirely new because it was more or less the same thing that YG’s K-Pop idol girl group 2NE1 did prior to the release of “Crush” last year.
UPDATE (17th April, 9am):
YG Entertainment just released another teaser image possibly related to the impending, long-awaited BIGBANG comeback/comeback tour.
The poster doesn’t say much, except “BIGBANG PRESENTS MADE” and that it’s “STARTING THIS APRIL”. BIGBANG member Taeyang also posted up a similar announcement via his Instagram account.
In case you missed it, here:
If that’s not enough, the South Korean entertainment powerhouse also released an official trailer via BIGBANG’s YouTube channel.
It’s past mid-April now so we’re guessing that we should be expecting more comeback materials in the next few days if not the next 2 weeks or so?
Who’s excited? ;)
