Big Bang member, G-Dragon, donated a hat to a charity auction that was bidded as high as 600,000₩.

E-daily hosted a charity auction event from the 11th to the 17th sponsored by Woori Financial Group and Lotte Mall. Celebrities donated various clothing and accessories to this charity. Popular idol groups and Hallyu Stars such as: Big Bang, Kara, Choi Ji Woo, Yoon Eun Hye, Kim Tae Gyoon, Park Kyung Hwan, and Kim Kwang Hyun participated in this event. Also, Korea’s national soccer team and other sports stars donated their uniforms and autographed balls.

Big Bang’s G-Dragon, an everlasting idol, donated a hat that was auctioned from the 6th to the 16th of May. His hat became the best item, making a record of 610,000₩.

His black and white cap was bidded for a record of 72 times.

A limit was set when it was realized that most bidders for this hat were adolescents and university students. To prevent the price from going too high, the officials set a maximum bidding price of no higher than 10,000₩.

Also, Kara member Han Seung Yeon greatly helped the charity as well. She donated an autographed book called ’21 People Who Move the World Oprah Winfrey’. It was auctioned for 300,000₩.

All proceeds of this charity event will be donated to a children’s foundation for missing children.

Big Bang challenged themselves with shocking style for their debut as fashion magazine models.

Big Bang who recently released new single album ‘My Heaven’ in Japan, had a photoshoot for a men’s fashion magazine ‘Arena’ with world famous photographer Terry Richardson.

Big Bang members first introduced themselves with brief English before a photoshoot began at a studio located at Kangnam, Seoul. When Terry turned on a Michael Jackson song, Taeyang responded with a Michael Jackson dance. While TOP was doing an action of spitting out flower petals , Terry kept saying “good, good,” and went on with the harmonious atmosphere throughout the photoshoot.

Terry Richardson added ‘freedom’ and ‘sexiness’ on top of each member’s natural ‘color’ for their styles during s shoot, then he appeared as a model for a June cover of ‘Arena’ to capture a memory they made and shared during a shoot.

After photoshoot, Daesung said, “The photo concept was sensual so I was a bit surprised, but I finished it well. I think I can be sexier if I get another chance.” G-Dragon said, “I really wanted to be in front of his camera because I really like Terry’s photos. My wish finally came true today,” and smiled happily.

Terry Richardson quoted, “I will never forget about Big Bang’s pureness. I don’t like typical and fixed things. They looked more like playful boys rather than superstars,” during an interview with ‘Arena.’

‘Arena’ with Big Bang’s cover and their photos will be released on the 20th.

THE GIST:

it’s been 8 months since he last posted a “YG Message” … back in 2001 he first started this to deliver the official news straight to the fans, wanting to tell them personally.

but since recently he’s been planning so many things, they were subject to change without notice (YES THEY DID -.-) & the fans didn’t like this, so he would like to APOLOGIZE for this behavior. (apology accepted.)

also, he would like to assure the fans that any news coming from sources other than associations w/ YG to be taken lightly or as “prior information” instead of anything being official, & that only the “Message from YG” would have accurate info on his plans, since he wrote it himself. so fans, take news lightly until they are officially confirmed.

A LOT MORE UNDER THE CUT ———————————>

-note: ITALICS are sung in English

[CL] I go by the name of CL of 2NE1
It’s been a long time comin’ but we here now
And we ’bout to set the roof on fire baby (Uh oh)
You better get yours, cuz I’m getting mine (hey)

Eh eh eh eh eh eh eh ehh, 2ne1
Eh eh eh eh eh eh eh ehh, you gotta ring the alarm
Eh eh eh eh eh eh eh ehh, we 2ne1
Eh eh eh eh eh eh eh ehh, Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

[CL] Come in, come in, come in to a different world
Put aside your annoying worries
(Go) La la la la to my natural humming
(Go) Ha ha ha ha so no one can make fun of you

[MJ] Now let’s dance dance dance here (you) wanna get down
Think up bigger dream dream dream(s) cuz I can do what I want in this world
I have the freedom to do whatever I want tonight, tonight oh

[PB] Those stars that are sparkling in my eyes
Those lights that are burning my heart
They won’t last forever, but there’s nothing to lose
Oh oh oh oh (Oh oh oh oh)
Oh oh oh oh yeah

[Chorus]
[CL] I want to g-g-g-g-g-g-go crazy
I want to r-r-r-r-r-r-r-run faster
To those tall buildings, above that blue sky
I want to s-s-s-s-s-s-scream loudly

[SD] You got that fire that makes my heart go bump bump bump
You gotta drop it like it’s hot, don’t try to stop it now
Ooooh that fire, it makes your mind go boom boom boom
I gotta drop it like it’s hot don’t try to stop it now (hey)

[CL] Get up, get up, get up, although you fall many times
Even when the world I trusted betrays me again
I-I-I-I will never cry like a fool
Uh-oh-oh-oh don’t act innocent like others do

[MJ] I will take you to the end, follow, follow me
My heart races til it’s out of breath
Somehow I don’t hate it, I’m having fun
Don’t be scared, let it go
To a better tomorrow
Le-le-le-le-le-le-let’s go!

[PB] Those stars that are sparkling in my eyes
Those lights that are burning my heart
They won’t last forever, but there’s nothing to lose
Oh oh oh oh (Oh oh oh oh)
Oh oh oh oh yeah

[Repeat Chorus]

Scream

Eh eh eh eh eh eh eh ehh, 2ne1
Eh eh eh eh eh eh eh ehh, you gotta ring the alarm
Eh eh eh eh eh eh eh ehh, we 2ne1
Eh eh eh eh eh eh eh ehh-

[SD] Make your hair move move move move
Shake your booty gently gently gently gently
Make your hair move move move move
Shake your booty gently gently gently gently

[CL] Shake it UH

[Repeat Chorus]

[CL] I always want to be free like today
Heh~
