I just finished watching the MADE movie and there was something Taeyang said towards the end of the film that really struck a chord with me.
He started by mentioning how the term ‘Big Bang’ itself refers to a beginning in the universe. And then he continued that similarly, the five of them as Big Bang are always seeking new heights, always looking for new ideas - concepts that no one else has done - to try out. So in a way, they’re always beginning. And that even ten years on, they’re just at the beginning.
What a beautiful and poetic way to summarise their entire career thus far as five. As sad as I am that a hiatus is nearing, Taeyang’s words were a great source of comfort and a reminder of why us fans admire them and their work so much.
So here’s to many more beginnings with Big Bang ♡♡♡
I feel so grateful to have been a part of [big blockbusters] – the characters I’ve had the opportunity to play are unique, and they’re very different from each other. Ronan and the Elven King are too extraordinary to worry about them getting lost.
I adore color, so I’m going to keep talking about this. In the comic book world everything is black/white with a strong primary accent. It is clean and simple without background clutter. Take a look:
I love that someone placed the glass of orange juice simply so we could have yellow present in this shot, which is a collection of vibrant colors. Is it to highlight her confusion, perhaps?
The scenes at the police station were cast in a sickly green:
The prison was stark, almost devoid of color.
But wait, now check out the real world. Look at all this clutter, with different colors spread out haphazardly. It feels chaotic and disjointed, with no theme or cohesion. It’s not thoughtfully drawn, rather it is real.
And then the ending shot. Kang Chul is now in our world, he should follow our rules, yet somehow he has brought his comic book aesthetic with him. It makes him seem even more powerful.
