YG Entertainment hints at an earlier comeback for Big Bang

For the past month, Big Bang has been dropping hints on their March comeback. According to industry officials, however, the boys could be making their return a month earlier than expected.

The boys had planned to release an album ahead of their ‘Big Show‘ concert in March. Officials believe that in order for this to be possible, their album has to be released by late February at the latest.

Taeyang recently revealed to Star News, We’re planning for our ‘Big Show’ concert in March, and around that time, Big Bang will release a new album. Whether it’s an official studio album or a mini-album has yet to be decided.”

Officials have been noticing that YG Entertainment has been pooling all of their resources into Big Bang’s comeback album lately. They’ve been rushing to enlist music video directors and have concentrated their staff on its release.


Which Boy Band Is the Most Good-Looking?

Photos titled “Male Idol’s Overall Appearance” have surfaced various online communities, and they have created quite a buzz among Korean netizens.  An enthusiastic fan cleverly overlapped the images of the members in each boy band to create one representative photo for each group. A total of ten photos – representing Super Junior, JYJ, Big Bang, 2PM, SHINee, BEAST, MBLAQ, Infinite, UKISS, and FT Island – have been humoring netizens and fans alike.

While no one specific member comes to mind in most photos, Seungri’s face jumps out in Big Bang’s representation, while Wooyoung and Lee Hong Ki’s features are dominant in 2PM and FT Island’s photos respectively.

Those who’ve seen the photos commented, “JYJ is really handsome,” “This is why they are idols…Even their  appearances blended-in look amazing,” “It must have been labor-intensive photoshopping all thirteen faces for the Super Junior photo.”

What do you think? Which boy band has the most good-looking overall face out of the photos below?

On January 2, MTV Style put together a top 12 list of “It” girls from around the world. They described 2NE1 as: “K-Pop has picked up an insane amount of steam domestically between Girls Generation and 2NE1, with both of their major stateside performances eliciting an inexplicably bananas amount of crowd support. We’re keeping our eyes glued on 2NE1 as the new year progresses, namely because of their bestie collab status with our beloved Jeremy Scott and their enviable collection of high-drama streetwear like JoyRich.”

2NE1 released specially designed shoes in collaboration with Jeremy Scott and Adidas in October. 2NE1’s CL was also picked as having the #1 International Collaboration in 2011 by MTV Iggy for her performance at the “2011 MAMA” with Black Eyed Pea’s Will.I.Am and Apl.De.Ap.
