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).
We previously reported on the release of Big Bang‘s G-Dragon and Daesung‘s Talk videos.
With their comeback right ahead of them, TOP slightly mentioned Big Bang’s future moves and what they have in store for us within this next year.
Actress Kim Yoo Jung, who has publicly admitted to being a fan of Big Bang‘s T.O.P, displayed her deep affection for the sexy rapper yet again for Valentine’s Day.
Kim Yoo Jung recently guest-featured on the February 14th Valentine’s Day special of MBC FM4U ‘Hur Soo Kyung’s Music Village‘.
When a listener called in and guessed that Yoo Jung would most likely pick T.O.P as the idol she would give chocolates to this Valentine’s Day, Kim Yoo Jung did not deny it for a second.
“I like Big Bang a lot,” she said. “I would actually like to gift all the members with chocolate, not just T.O.P.”
Se7en has been making his promotional rounds on various music programs since his successful return to the music scene with the Park Jin Young-produced single When I Can′t Sing, and no topic was off limits when he recently sat down with Mnet’s Wide Entertainment News.
The singer appeared on the February 9 broadcast of the show ahead of his M Countdown comeback on the same day where he revealed which YG artist he thought was the most handsome and talked about his relationship with singer Rain.
When asked whom he considered to be the most handsome artist in his agency, Se7en responded, “I personally like the way I look. I personally like my face.”
However, in the end, he decided to give first place to T.O.P, citing the Big Bang rapper’s “charismatic gaze” as one of his reasons.
Singer and actress, Uhm Jung Hwa, chose Big Bang’s TOP as the greatest partner she has ever worked with. During a recent interview on KBS 2TV “Entertainment Weekly”, Uhm Jung Hwa gathered much attention when she chose TOP over her “Dancing Queen” (movie) partner and co-star, Hwang Jung Min.
Singer Se7en who recently released a new song produced by J.Y Park sat down to conduct an interview with SBS TV‘s ‘Midnight TV Entertainment‘.
On the episode that aired on February 8th, Se7en, who has made a comeback for the first time in a year and six months revealed the true personality of Big Bang‘s T.O.P.
“When T.O.P comes out on TV, he looks extremely fierce and charismatic,” he said. “But behind the scenes, he has so much aegyo.”
Further in the interview he shared his thoughts on producer J.Y. Park. “J.Y. Park is 12 years older than I am so I don’t know if I’m allowed to say things like this, but, he is really adorable,” he said.
With their comeback nearing on the 29th, Big Bang TOP’s teaser photo was released. It revealed the shocking new transformation and concept, leaving it up to netizens to foreshadow that the rest of the members’ hairstyles will be just as big of a transformation.
On the 6th, TOP revealed a photo of himself on the YG Entertainment blog where it showed his bright sky-blue hair and intense masculine beauty. As this photo first reached out to the online public, many fans began posting on their personal online blogs and/or SNS accounts saying, “TOP’s eyes and hair are so overwhelming and powerful” and “First the silver hair and now the blue hair, he can pull it off perfectly”.
But apparently, YG says this is only the beginning. During a phone call on the 6th with OSEN News, they garnered much more anticipation when they stated that, “The other members have most definitely taken the risk to transform into something just as shocking as TOP has. They have especially put forth a lot of effort in their hair to better surprise their fans.”
In addition, they have also added that, “A diverse spectrum of fashion for each member will also be seen throughout this new album,” and “Not only have we stressed on showing off the masculinity like we did with TOP, but we have also been planning many different concepts to reveal as well.”
On the heels of Se7en‘s triumphant return last night, YG Entertainment is back updating their YG-Life blog with the first concept photo for “Fantastic Baby” one of seven new tracks from Big Bang‘s upcoming album titled ‘Alive‘!
Big Bang’s T.O.P, charismatic in sunglasses as if a cut from a pictorial
Pictures of Big Bang member T.O.P taken by a fan at the set of a CF are creating a buzz online.
Recently on an online community board, several pictures have been posted tagged as ‘T.O.P, you’re looking at me, right?”
Even though the pictures are taken by a fan, T.O.P exudes a feel like he’s in a pictorial. T.O.P may be wearing a pair of sunglasses, but his charisma takes over and it feels as if he’s making eye contact.
Group Big Bang’s T.O.P‘s DJing images are making waves on the web.
You said you’re a fan of Big Bang, which member do you like?
– I like them all, but TOP oppa’s voice is attractive. And, he also tries hard to become a singer. I like that sincere side.
If you were to act with him?
– I want to try acting as brother and sister. I’m too young to act for romance. It’ll be strange. I can’t even imagine such situation. The act itself will be very exciting, don’t you think? Haha.
Big Bang‘s charismatic rapper T.O.P (Choi Seung Hyun) will be mostly active as an actor in 2012.
His agency YG Entertainment remarked, “T.O.P wants to work mostly as an actor in 2012 and is reviewing a few different scenarios for dramas and movies. He feels optimistic about the new drama ‘Celebrity‘, and it’s one of the projects he is highly considering.”
T.O.P was among the first picks for Yoon Suk Ho‘s ‘Love Rain‘ as well as ‘Only You‘ with Kim Haneul, however, he personally felt most drawn to ‘Celebrity‘.
‘Celebrity’ tells the story of a girl who is anguished after being dumped by her idol boyfriend. In order to get her revenge, she becomes an idol star as well but falls in love with a different top star. The love triangle plot is based off a true story of real celebrities, which is garnering the high interest of viewers everywhere.
Big Bang‘s T.O.P drove his fans crazy after doing a ‘wave’ dance that completely contradicts his mysterious and charismatic image.
T.O.P, along with his fellow Big Bang members G-Dragon, Daesung, Taeyang, and Seungri performed labelmate 2NE1‘s “I Am The Best” for ’YG Family 15th Anniversary Concert‘, which is currently taking place in Japan.
Dressed in all black, the members flawlessly performed both the solo and group dances that are an essential part of the “I Am The Best” performance. What drove the audience especially wild, however, was handsome rapper T.O.P’s sexy wave dance that showcased his silly and playful side.
Netizens who saw the footage responded with comments such as, “I want to see the actual video, not a fan cam“, “I want to see the Japanese fans’ reactions“, and more.
Big Bang‘s rapper, T.O.P and veteran singer, Kim Tae Won were recently spotted wearing the same jacket.
On December 24th, Kim Tae Won wore a stylish red-and-black jacket at the 2011 KBS ‘Entertainment Awards‘ ceremony. The jacket was the very same one worn by T.O.P. when he performed on Mnet back in March. However, netizens were amazed at how different the two celebrities looked despite wearing the same jacket.
Kim Tae Won emphasized his rocker style by wearing leather pants and a fitted black shirt. He accessorized with chrome aviators as well as an elaborate silver pendant and chain. The red and black jacket added a splash of color, while heightening the look of a cool musician.
T.O.P., on the other hand, lived up to his reputation as the trendy, yet masculine idol as he wore the jacket with ease. The pattern can be overwhelming, but thanks to T.O.P.’s clean cut look and silver hair, it blends in perfectly with his style.
Big Bang‘s T.O.P. has announced plans of making an acting comeback through a casting offer from an upcoming drama tentatively titled ‘Celebrity’.
YG Entertainment revealed, “T.O.P. has plans of pursuing his acting career this year so we’re currently looking over several different drama and movie offers. We’re steering the discussion for ‘Celebrity’ in a positive light, but that is just one of many we’re considering.”
T.O.P. was rumored to be in discussion for ‘Love Rain‘ and ‘Absolute You‘ last year, but he’s decided to wait it out for ‘Celebrity’, a drama that handles the various scandals in the entertainment industry. A girl that becomes betrayed by her idol boyfriend debuts as a celebrity herself to get revenge but falls in love with another top star.
T.O.P. himself will be playing the role of a perfectionist named Jung Soo Hyun, a man that falls in love with ‘Ban Hana’, the girl that becomes betrayed by her former love.

There have been many beautiful faces gracing the cover of 1st Look Magazine in 2011, but the ‘Cover Of The Year’ title went to none other than Big Bang‘s T.O.P!
Big Bang’s T.O.P revealed the circumstances of how his collaboration with Gummy for “I Am a Singer” came to be.
T.O.P appeared on the December 11th broadcast of MBC‘s “I Am a Singer,” in support of fellow YG artist and senior, Gummy. In this “Sanulrim Special,” T.O.P joined Gummy on stage as the featuring rapper in her 2nd challenge performance of “Rascal.”
T.O.P explained that he felt bad seeing that Gummy was in 7th place, and decided to participate so that he could help. To this, Gummy explained, “T.O.P and I fit each other musically. The lyrics for the rap portion of the ‘Rascal’ stage were written by T.O.P himself.”
Gummy performed “Rascal” before Kim Changwan, the vocalist of Sanulrim, starting with a fantasy-like atmosphere then switching to a lighthearted rhythm, adding cuteness to the song. Kim Changwan praised her for the performance, saying that she managed to understand the original song perfectly, and that there was even more of a feeling of freedom as compared to the original song.

Representing the three major agencies, Big Bang‘s T.O.P (YG Entertainment), Wonder Girls‘ Sunye (JYP Entertainment), and SNSD‘s Yoona (SM Entertainment) have volunteered to show their support for the SBS ‘Survival Audition K-POP Star‘ contestants. Viewers are already curious as to what kind of wisdom these three will share with the hopefuls. Reportedly, they showed their professionalism and sincerity by offering good pointers, and encouraging words.
Rather than informing the contestants of what to expect from judge BoA, SNSD’s Yoona drew attention for sharing her thoughts on what label mate and senior, BoA, is like behind-the-scenes. “Senior BoA has a side that’s soft and sensitive. When the SNSD girls spend time with her, she easily jokes around and makes us feel comfortable,” she said. Yoona also reminded the contestants that it is most important to be confident during any given performance.
Big Bang’s T.O.P whose face was captured in the pilot teaser stated, “Don’t try to make up extra things up as you go. CEO Yang Hyun Suk hates when you try to please someone so bad that you make others feel uncomfortable. It’s most important to show him your potential. If you do that, then you’ll have well delivered your true talent.”
J.Y. Park previously remarked that he was determined to meticulously turn each page in his book, so that he would not accidentally skip over someone, ruining their dreams forever. Sunye was deeply touched by his determination, and the singer who auditioned before J.Y. Park ten years ago offered her encouragement to the contestants with, “All of the judges including J.Y. Park are such perfectionists that they will be able to easily catch each of your talents.”
