Hello. This is YG Entertainment.
Thank you for giving so much love to the GD&TOP 1st Album that was released last year on December 24th.
The GD&TOP bunny logo was mentioned many times in GD&TOP’s interviews because the logo was designed as an image of a bunny’s ears combined with the victory “V” hand sign, based on the Playboy Enterprises International Inc.’s bunny logo.
However, the company did not receive permission regarding the original bunny logo trademark rights that belongs to Playboy, so it has no association with Playboy’s work.
The company has considered the confusion from the issue and has received a polite request from Playboy Inc., and accordingly, we have decided to no longer use GD&TOP’s bunny logo.
Sales of the GD&TOP album that used the bunny logo will be halted, and the release of a NEW COVER Ver. with a new logo is planned for July.
We ask for everyone’s interest and support for the newly designed GD&TOP 1st Album New COVER Ver. (same content as the existing version) to be released in July.

Thelma Aoyama Talks Big Bang and TaeYang
MC: You’ve collaborated with BIGBANG SOL before right?
Thelma: SOL was the first overseas artist that I collaborated with. Artists in Korea are very stoic [disciplined]. They have a strong sense of professionalism. On the MV set, he kept on practicing and singing.
MC: Very devoted. What is the real (face) of SOL like?
Thelma: We filmed an MV together. That was the first time we spent a long time together. SOL is so shy.
Thelma: He is a shy boy so if we leave him alone, he is like this (she pretends to be SOL at 0:45)
Thelma: But when we talk with staff saying things like – yeah! he can enjoy saying/acting like …. So if we talk to him, he would be very pleased.
MC: I see – a little bit like me.
MC: Yes, if nobody talks to me, I am all quiet.
Thelma: Kidding ?
MC: I think I’m lying (laughs.) What is the charm of Bigbang?
Thelma: The charm? Each member has their own position [role]. G-dragon has leadership. Like at rehearsal, he has the ability to put the group together as leader. Top(‘s ) is Rap. Sol(‘s) is Dance and Singing. D-lite(‘s) is singing and he does MC too. VI’s is talk show and he does solo too. Everybody is multi-talented.
MC: Did you actually did meet all of them?
Thelma: I have, I have. A couple of times.
MC: Really? Where did you meet them?
Thelma: At the concert and we went out and had a meal together.
MC: You guys are that close.
MC: The friendship is deep!!
Thelma: (waving hand and shy)
MC: You!! Wow!
Thelma: Wow! (laughs)
MC: Please watch the clip BIG BANG!!
MC: That was the BigBang concert clip! How was it?
Thelma: I went to the one at Makuhari.
MC: You saw this?
Thelma: Yeah, yeah. Very powerful live.
MC: That’s right. And this, this hand move is so cool. I want to use it somehow from now on…
MC: OK now please watch the MV of Thelma where she collaborated with SOL. What is the highlight of the MV?
Thelma: The stage has front side and back side. And it’s turning around. There were quite a lot of complaints that it made them dizzy. And I thought – I have done it(laughs) But it’s a good MV so please watch! Thelma Aoyama and BigBang SOL – Fall in Love!

This tweet has sent VIPS world wide into a frenzy of questions…”What Kind of Journey??!?” ”Where’s he going?!“
All will no doubt be revealed when TaeYang once again forgets hes got his geotagging on ^^
Fans in the U.K are organizing a flash mob event to bring YG Entertainment to London. On Facebook, there is a public event page titled “Bring YG to the UK” with almost 600 users confirming their attendance (200 maybe attending). The flash mob is scheduled to take place on July 9th from 3:00PM at the Trafalgar Square in central London.
The event page describes the event as “a chance to really show the huge and growing YG fan base in the UK – hopefully it’ll be even better than the one they did in Paris for SM :)”
It gives four options for the dress code: Lollipop theme, Uniqlo Big Bang t-shirts, bright colors with lots of accessories, and Dr. Dre Beats headphones. The list of songs they plan on performing include: 1TYM’s “Hot,” Se7en’s “Digital Bounce” and “Better Together,” Big Bang’s “Love Song,” “Lie,” “Last Farewell,” “High High,” “Baby Don’t Cry,” 2NE1’s “Fire,” “I Don’t Care,” and “I Am the Best.” The flash mob will end with 2NE1’s “I Am the Best” the organizer said.
But according to local media [Korean], YG Entertainment was not aware of this event taking place. YGE told Sports Chosun:
“We did not know English fans were gathering together for this event. In the past, YG artists received a number of calls from European music festivals to come and perform. We see there is demand for our concert in Europe, but realistically, it won’t be happening anytime soon. The situation with Daesung has not been solved yet, and 2NE1 already is scheduled to run Japanese promotions in September. But setting feasibility issues aside, we’re just thankful for the fans showing so much interest. We hope this becomes a chance to really globalize K-Pop.”
A flash mob event was held in Paris last April to request for an additional “SM Town World Tour in Paris” concert. The event took place in front of the Louvre receiving massive press coverage from all over the world. SM Entertainment originally planned for a single concert in Paris, but following the flash mob event, decided to add another concert. This has led flash mobs to be organized in other parts of the world as well, including Toronto and New York, where flash mobs will take place on July 2nd and July 6th, respectively, to request SM Town Live concerts in North America.

The heat of Hallyu is still not going away from Europe.
Following the flash mob for SM town’s concert, a flash mob is taking place in London, UK on 9th July.
On 27th, from a site, there was a page called Bring YG to the UK in order to bring artists from YG Entertainment. After the SM town concert, it seems as though the European fans have shown a lot of interest in YG Family’s concert too.
According to this page, the fans, in order to demand a concert from YG will meet on 9th July at the centre of London, Trafalgar Square. They will sing and dance the hit songs by 1TYM, SE7EN, BIGBANG, 2NE1 etc.
Someone from YG Entertainment said that “We heard that there was a lot of interest in Hallyu in Europe but we are very thankful that there are so much interest coming from the UK” and that “YG have been thinking positively towards holding a concert in the UK”.
They also said, “Honestly, we were already in the planning stages to have a concert in the UK” and “In order to have a great performance, we are preparing things, one by one.”
In April, there was a flash mob in front of the Louvre in Paris, to extend the SM Town concert. Due to the flash mob SM town decided to have another day of the concert

“Just 10 seconds”-JiYong leant against the dance studio mirror, hoping it’s coolness would jolt him awake “10 seconds and I will be all over this”
“What were you doing last night eh ?”
JiYong opened his eyes to see TOP’s face an inch away from his, swaying from side to side with his child…
Uk Big Bang is 6 months old!
SO much has happened in that time and I want to thank Linda, Jolene, Myha, Wendy & Dee for all their help
And all our followers , cause we love you
And of course these 5…..
Here’s to another 6 months, whatever happens we will be here !!
Kwon Jiyong came out with a pair of sunglasses on and he was in black.
He took off his sunglasses later but he put on a hat
We were all amazed by how amazing he looked!!
However, he seemed to be so weak when he was greeting us— Maybe this is only me who thought like this.
Personally, I think he is the one who is affected the most by the incident of Daesung and he did not bother to hide his sadness.
Perhaps it is out of the responsibility of his being the leader, anyway I could not see he smile much today. Even when he was smiling, he just smiled a little.
During the Q and A session, there was a part when MC asked some questions, then the boys had to select some fans to answer them. I saw there was a banner on which ’ Seungri ah, you are the best’.
When it was the turn of G- Dragon, he said, ’ just let the fan of Seungri to answer it.’
I was so happy at that time. (because i ship Gri)
However, later I saw that Seungri was making a gesture besides G- Dragon: (He asked the fan) Put it down. Put it (banner) down.
Then he put swift his hand over his neck and made some facial expressions to hint the fan. That is why I could not see the banner anymore later and then I started to sense that there are something bad happening. I heard from the fans who were sitting at the front rows, G Dragon was teary eyed and he had dropped his tears. Later, he even swung out his ring.
After this incident, the stage performance seemed to have become a lbit dramatic. Hm, whenever Taeyang and others patted his shoulders or did other stuff in front of him, he was still only smiling slightly.
Today, Taeyang was asked a question, ’ if you were a girl, whom do you want to have a date with?’ Then, he laughed and said, ‘this question is such a cliche!’ Then Seungri said, ‘let me ask the questions. Taeyang, where did you buy this cute cap?’ (I cannot remember it very clearly now, it seemed to be like it.’ Then, Taeyang answered it shyly.
Finally, the MC asked Seungri, ‘so where did you buy this pair of cute glasses?’ Seungri said it is a pair of glasses with no glasses attached .
Then, Tabi suddenly rushed to his side and did a gesture of looking like he was going to pinch his own eyes out.
They were singing ‘La La La’, ‘Sunset Glow’ ‘Haru Haru’ etc in the middle of the concert. They performed songs which beatbox is involved and nearly all of the part of beatbox was done by Seungri!!
He was really awesome!!
We all said we wanted to listen to ‘La La La’ so badly but ,They have not sung it for a long time already so it seemed that they have forgotten the lyrics and even the lyrics seemed not to be so familiar to them.
When they were taking a break in the middle of the show, the MC asked the fans who was confident about their dancing skills or who has some special skills. Then, there was a fan coming up on the stage.
When the male fan walked on the stage, there were screaming everywhere in the venue, ‘Daesung!!’ I was shocked when I had the first glance of him too. He looks really alike with Daesung. Not only his eyes but also his expression and the way that he danced looked a bit alike with Daesung.
When I was watching his performance, I felt like crying.
When it was the Q and A session, Seungri sand songs about raining and G Dragon smiled. I thought this was the biggest smile that has even spreaded on his face ever since the show started.
I dared not to look into G-Dragon’s eyes later. He was so sad and he did not cover up his emotion. Perhaps it is because he recalled what had happened on him before.
The other three members were trying hard to spice up the atmosphere. When they were performing ‘Last Farewell’, Tabi changed his gestures from moving his hands upward to downward, Taeyang was amused by him.
Tabi also tried to make Seungri smile later. Someone asked Tabi question like which member he did miss most. I felt there the atmosphere was kind of dead at that time. Everyone seemed to be silent at that time.
Then, Tabi answered , ‘I miss every member.’ (I do not remember it very clearly) Anyway, when it came to the end of the show, the name of Daesung was not mentioned at all.
However, in the parts which Daesung should appear, there were only Seungri and G-Dragon holding their shoulders with each other without the smiling Daesung emerging from anywhere…
It rained cats and dogs today. Waiting is painful and coupling with the incident of Daesung, everyone was sad…
I really thought it was exceptionally sad in this kind of days. There were so many VIPs who had been waiting outside the venue starting from the night before. Nights of these days are really cold.
After the concert had started, I don’t know whether it is because they were so happy to see us again.
G- Dragon could not hold back his sadness and solemness. The other three gave me a feeling that they were forcing their smiles out. Whenever I think of it, I feel sad. It seemed there are dance steps of ‘kudos on the floor’ when they were performing ‘Lies’.
When they had done the ‘kudos’, the four boys all looked so sad. It looked like all of them had so much to burden in their hearts but they were still trying to spice up the air. I felt depressed when watching them acting like this.
They were so unhappy themselves but they still tried to care about our feelings. Seungri was trying to imitate Tabi. I was relieved a bit when watching his imitation. Taeyang was helping G- Dragon to sing several lyrics when the latter could not do so.
I did not remember which song it was. I think it was one of the last songs, the fans who were standing in front of me just screamed ,’ Daesung!’
I was standing at the back, then there was a group of people pushing forward since they wanted to see whether Daesung was really here. After the show, I thought, it is because we all wanted to see him so badly so whenever we saw anyone who resembled him, we were so emotional…
When they were delivering their concluding speech, it seems to be a habit that we would ask them to ‘encore’ and we did so too.
There was a vip said Taeyang casted a glance at G- Dragon and the latter shook his head a bit. We were a bit disappointed but we really did not ask for it anymore and let them go silently.
There were VIPs said G-Dragon was taking deep breaths when he was in the part of which Daesung should perform in tonight. When they were performing ‘Love Song’, all of the four members were hiding in a shade.
Not only the expression of G-Dragon is not good but also those of other members. When they were performing ‘Stupid Liar’, nobody were counting the rhythm and doing the ‘hitting head’ moves’ as usual.
They did follow the steps later but they seemed to be sadder then. I have just has a look of the fancam that taken by myself. G-Dragon said, ’ I thanks LG OPTIMOUS for providing the stage for us. I am so happy for it. I hope we can meet you in this way frequently in the future. Next time, we will perform in a group of five. In fact, you all have done so well already.’
