Big Bang triumphs in Tokyo


K-pop boy group Big Bang enchanted an audience of about 30,000 during a recent concert in Tokyo, YG Entertainment, the agency of the five-member boy group, said on Sunday.

The group performed a finale for the Tokyo Girls Collection 2015 S/S, one of the largest fashion events in Japan, on Saturday and sang four of its hit songs including “Tonight,” “Hands Up” and “Fantastic Baby.”

The fashion event was marking its 20th anniversary. This year’s event was the largest in those 20 years.

Among all the K-pop acts, Big Bang has one of the strongest followings in Japan and it has been holding nationwide concert tours there between November and January.

With the concerts in cities across Japan, the boy group set a record as the first non-Japanese musicians to have attracted 740,000 people to concerts over a period of three months.

Meanwhile, the group is likely to return to Korea’s music scene sometime in the first half of this year.

Although Taeyang and G-Dragon, two members of the band, formed a hip-hop duo last year, fans have been waiting for a long time to see Big Bang together again.

The last album from the K-pop boy band came out in June 2012.

Bing Bang debuted on the music scene in 2006 and has had a successful career in Korea and abroad.
