BIGBANG is a 5 member boy group signed to YG Entertainment, and is one of the most popular groups in Asia. BIGBANG first made their debut in 2006 but didnt gained much popularity until 2007 with their single “Lies.” Since then the group has made huge strides in the KPOP music industry and have broken and made many records. They are the first Korean group to win “Best Newcomer“ and the “Japan Records” award with their Japanese Album “BIGBANG“, and were the first KPOP group to have an album reach the top 10 on the US iTunes chart. BIGBANG has recently released their 5th mini album “Alive“ and within hours of it’s release it dominated music charts around the globe. One unique trait that separate BIGBANG from other groups is that the members write and compose their songs themselves.
