Hyunseung (now of BEAST fame) was originally due to debut as a member of Big Bang, even appearing in the reality show in the build up to their debut, but was cut, as YG felt his personality and stage presence needed developing. G-Dragon has been heavily involved in the writing and composition of Big Bang’s songs right the way back to the first mini-album. in 2007, the band’s Korean activities were brought to an early close as it was reported some members had been hospitalised due to exhaustion. They resumed Japanese promotions at the end of the year.
In 2009/2010, most of the work produced by Big Bang was focused on their individual activities including release by the duo GD&T.O.P. They did however release a CF with labelmates 2NE1. In May 2011 Big Bang’s Daesung was involved in a car accident that caused the death of a motor cyclist. He did not appear on stage with Big Bang until the end of the year for the YG anniversary celebrations. In 2013 Big Bang returned to pursuing solo activities, including T.O.P’s acting career.
Big Bang have an R&B pop style, however their ‘Fantastic Baby’ comeback was a synth pop track and their solo promotions follow a wide variety of styles.
