So lately I've really started getting into kpop and after seeing how big a fan of it you are I was wondering if you had any favorite interviews with Big Bang? Like, ones where you get to know the band a little better or ones you just like. Anything would be appreciated. Thanks so much!
Ah that’s so awesome, I’m so glad you’re liking kpop :) As for BIGBANG, the first thing you should watch is their pre debut documentary. It shows all the members (including a sixth member Hyun-seung who later ended up debuting with Beast! (and then left and they renamed themselves Highlight lmao)). It’s a quintessential part of seeing how hard they worked to get to where they are today, and how humble their beginnings were. I cry literally ever single time.
Next I’d recommend their variety show appearances. For this I’d just search YouTube for BIGBANG Weekly Idol, and BIGBANG Infinity Challenge etc. They typically do interview stuff within the episode as well as fun games/hilarious moments between the members. Happy Together is one of my all time favorites for interviews. It’s a relatively recent one and it’s just so great seeing them all together hanging out in a spa after all these years of working to get where they are. I’d also recommend hunting down the BIGBANG 0 to 10 MADE Documentary which shows everything they went through during the 2015 world tour, it’s heart wrenching and beautiful.
If you haven’t watched the Behind The Scenes/Making Films for their music vides, I’d check those out too!
As far as finding most of this material, head over to bigbangupdates, where they keep an archive of subbed episodes. You can also find things on YouTube but a lot have been removed due to copyright so you’ll have to search around.
sometimes it’s just fun to search “BIGBANG funny moments” or “BIGBANG interview” and let YouTube take you on an adventure. I can’t remember what variety show it was, but there’s a particularly funny episode of G-Dragon talking about TOP’s body. It was a YG family special, annnnd I found it right here haha.
That should be good to get you started, have fun! *VIP Until Whenever*
