Big Bang (빅뱅) is a Korean hip-hop group comprised of five members. They are the new face of YG Entertainment and the group was created through a long audition process filmed as a 10 episode documentary where one member was dropped, and the official group debuted at the YG Family 10th Anniversary Concert on August 19th, 2006.
The five members of the group are G-Dragon (Kwon Ji Yong; leader, rapper, vocal), T.O.P./Tempo (Choi Seung Hyun; rapper, vocal), TaeYang (Dong Young Bae; rapper, vocal), DaeSung (Kang Dae Sung; vocal), & SeungRi (Lee Seung Hyun; vocal).
Even though the members are all very young (born in 1987, 88, 89, and 90), they are a multi-talented group that is trained to be proficient in all aspects of music (i.e. singing, rapping, dancing, composing, and writing lyrics). The leader G-Dragon has trained with YG for 6 years, being an accomplished artist even before debut, along with fellow trainee TaeYang who also trained for 6 years. T.O.P. was known in the undergroud hip-hop world for his beat-boxing and rapping skills, and is the oldest of the group with a goofy personality that brings laughter to the group and to fans. DaeSung is the ever-smiling vocalist of the group who still attends school regularly while being in Big Bang and is praised by other YG artists for his singing. Seungri, the youngest member, was also the last member to be added to the group, but holds much promise with his impressive dancing skills.
Big Bang has released three singles (Big Bang, Big Bang is V.I.P., and B I G B A N G 03); one album (Since 2007); one minialbum (Always).
(Not to be confused with the Norwegian rock band Bigbang.)
