[OSEN=정준화 기자] Sorry for not saying goodbye coolly, but it is harder to let them go as the time to say goodbye is coming closer. As BIGBANG is appearing more in front of fans in order to build more good memories with fans before they join the army for mandatory military service, fans are facing bigger and bigger sorry feelings for the imminent separation from BIGBANG. Even though it is a separation only for a couple of years, that seems to be no condolence for BIGBANG’s fans.
Upon the release of “MADE FULL ALBUM”, BIGBANG made a lot of appearances in front of fans, not only in TV music shows every week, but also in “The Infinite Challenge”, “Weekly Idol”, “Radio Star”, other TV shows, and fan meetings. Then, BIGBANG’s service for fans reached its climax at the large-scale concert held in Seoul to draw 60,000 fans.
The timing could have never been better. The release of the first full album in eight years in the year of celebration of the 11thanniversary of debut, and then the last concert before joining the army. Because it will be difficult to see the performances of the complete team of BIGBANG for a couple of years from now, fans at the concert were so much excited.
BIGBANG held “BIGBANG10 THE CONCERT : 0.TO.10 FINAL IN SEOUL” on January 7 and 8 at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul, to meet 60,000 fans. The concert was live-broadcasted on NAVER V-LIVE, to invite fans who were not able to get the tickets to the concert, too.
The concert was the grand finale of BIGBANG’s concert and fan meeting tour that have been carried out in Korea, Japan, China, and also other regions, in celebration of the 10th anniversary of BIGBANG’s debut. BIGBANG and their fans looked back on the past 10 years together and promised their future together with V.I.P., having touching moments.
BIGBANG’s set list prepared for the concert was surprising. The concert was filled with BIGBANG’s top hit songs released for the past 10 years, including “LIES”, “LAST FAREWELL”, “LOSER”, “GOOD BOY”, “IF YOU”, “BANG BANG BANG”, “FANTASTIC BABY”, “SOBER”, and so on. The members poured out all their energy from the beginning to the end and fans acclaimed BIGBANG, shaking the golden crown sticks for entire 200 minutes.
The members also performed their solo hit songs. SEUNGRI’s “STRONG BABY”, DAESUNG’s “Look at Me, Gwisoon”, G-DRAGON’s “Heartbreaker” and other songs were performed. After GD&T.O.P’s “HIGH HIGH” and GD&TAEYANG’s “GOOD BOY” were performed, T.O.P sang “DOOM DADA” and TAEYANG performed “EYES, NOSE, LIPS”, to make the atmosphere at the concert reach the climax.
By the end of the concert, a parade of great hits including “IF YOU”, “LAST DANCE”, “BANG BANG BANG”, “FANTASTIC BABY”, and “SOBER” were performed. As BIGBANG has a large pool of hit songs that resonate with everyone and they are still creating new hits, the team’s concert was all the more fancy and rich. Notably, BIGBANG’s live performance was perfect and they presented remarkably eye-catching fans service and attitude on the stage, which have been polished further for the past 10 years.
Fans cannot but feel sorry for the fact that they cannot see such perfect performances of the five members of BIGBANG for some time. TAEYANG expressed his gratitude for fans and promised to come back soon.
“From our debut 10 years ago until today, the past 10 years have passed really fast, all because we were together with you. It’s not the last time that we spend together, so don’t worry… It’s just that we cannot see each other for some time. I believe all of you are feeling the same with us. Just as the past 10 years together have passed so fast, the time you will be able to see the five of us on the stage again will come so fast.”
