A photo of Big Bang‘s T.O.P in Japan was recently uploaded to a Korean community site with the caption, “T.O.P got married in Japan?”
In the photo, T.O.P was carrying a lady on his back with MBC‘s filming crew around them. Because of the photo, netizens are speculating that T.O.P is the latest idol that will be added to We Got Married‘s roster.
Many are also wondering who is the lucky celebrity that got paired with T.O.P.
Netizens commented, “That girl must have saved the country in her previous life to be paired up with T.O.P”, “Among the BIGBANG members, I was hoping it was Taeyang who will be on WGM”, “Thank goodness it isn’t Seungri”, “Doesn’t that lady look like Jiyong?”
Q. The second TOP came on stage, “winter ended and spring found us.” I love all the parts and tunes of “Fantastic Baby”, but I lost conscience when TOP’s “Boom Shakalaka Boom Shakalaka” part came on. You know the feeling when your whole body feels like a spell has cast on it and you can’t move at all? Like a lagging computer, all day I am yelling Boom Shakalaka, Boom Shakalaka. What in the world has “TOP God” done to me? (more…)
StyleM’s STAR vs STAR recently conducted a poll asking netizens which star best suits bright and colorful hairstyles. The results were released on the 14th of March and TOP got a total of 522 votes (56%) and Park Bom had a total of 413 votes (44%).
T.O.P, “If the image of a ‘star’ becomes a hindrance to my acting, then I will throw that image away any time”
Big Bang T.O.P, “If the image of a ‘star’ becomes a hindrance to my acting, then I will throw that image away any time.”
Big Bang’s TOP recently showed an interest and attachment to the subject of “acting”.
Being able to freely manage the life of a musician and actor, TOP decked out the front cover of a special edition March issue of Cosmo Men Magazine. As TOP showed off the image of a very playful gentleman in his New York style suits, he also gave off the vibe of a very masculine charisma that not many other idol members can pull off.
During an interview(with Cosmo Men), TOP said that he would throw away the image of a “star” any day if it was to get in the way of him becoming an actor, hence stating that he would never want to take on the roles of a popular singer, a bad boy, or a wealthy family’s son since those are the only characters that tend to garner the most popularity. He stated that he wants to take on a role that suits him well, not just a role where he can gain popularity from it.
When the interviewer confessed that he would do well in any role, he stated, “I had times when I thought that being a celebrity didn’t fit me at all,” but confessed that, “Even though I was not born to be a celebrity, I have studied about it a lot and have many things learned. I am still continuing to learn to become the best.”
Interviewer: Many fans have been looking forward to hear from you. How have you been?
TOP: These days, I’m trying to concentrate on this album, ALIVE. Actually, there was a drama that I was working for 3 months but I cancelled it so I can focus on this album.
Interviewer: What does BIGBANG mean to you?
TOP: When I have my kids, I want to show them my twenties. For me, it is a keepsake of my hottest youth.
Interviewer: What is the common thing about BIGBANG members? How can you guys be doing fine?
TOP: In spite of having our own passion, we are so warm-hearted. Everyone is truthful, pure, passionate, energetic and always go for the same path. How could we do well as a team, it’s because each has different characters and dispositions but we don’t go against each other. When I see them as an older brother, they always lean on each other. They seem to be a real family, including me.
Interviewer: What do you think of this album?
TOP: I’m dearly attached to this album. I had so many inspirations when I worked as GD&TOP. I wrote lyrics having much attachment/affection. This album shows our honest feelings. I really want to show you as soon as possible, without embellishment.
I was on the show because I heard that Gummy noona didn’t get number 1 in the previous competition, so I had a “I must make her number 1” thought. In the end, she got a really good score (number 1) so I felt satisfied. Actually if ‘I’ am a Singer’ was my own stage, I would be very nervous but since I was there only to help so I told myself not to worry. After I finished the stage for ‘Rascal’, I really did end up becoming one.
It’s not like that, but the after I finished recording for ‘I am A Singer’, I randomly saw Lee Mi-Suk sunbae-nim on ‘Healing Camp’. As a matter of fact, I said on a variety show before that “it’s tiring having photoshoots with Lee Mi-Suk sunbae-nim” as a way to be funny, but it became too exaggerated and I regretted saying that. It will definitely be an honor to act with Lee Mi-Suk sunbae-nim. As for my acting, I have a few projects on hand but because BIGBANG’s album release has been pushed to an earlier date, so my entire focus is on the album right now. If there are any other good projects and if our timing is the same, then I definitely want to act together no matter what.
There’s nothing much to say about my solo album. I will release it when I think I’m ready. To be honest, I have already created lots of songs but I think I should work on them a bit more. I’m working on my confidence too and it’s slowly increasing. If I can’t produce an album that will make people surprised, then I don’t think there’s a need to produce one. First of all, I want to worry less starting from January, 2012 (laughs).
