Big Bang and the Gold Artist Award

Big Bang performed the Best Hit Song Awards 2009 show and won the Gold Artist Award.  They only performed “GARA GARA GO!!” To be honest I’m kind of sad they performed this song because I think “Koe wo kikasete” is a much better song.

Shaun Evaristo on Pacific Rim Video

Choreographer Shaun Evaristo was interviewed by Pacific Rim Video for Alexis Avila and Sheroes’ Dancing For Cause Work shop to benefit Gawad Kalinga of The Philippines. The workshop was on Friday 11/20 at Team Millenia’s The Bridge Studio in Fullerton, CA.

If you’re not familiar with Team Millenia, you may remember them from ABDC and every summer they have their Summer Intensive workshop. You all should be familiar with Shaun, especially since he choreographs for YG Entertainment artists.

G-Dragon is ripped

At the MAMA event that happened a couple of days ago, YG artists took the stage and blew everyone away. More specifically G-Dragon that is. During a performance he had a wardrobe malfunction, while in the middle of his “Heartbreaker” set his pants ripped in a happy region.

Speaking of wardrobe, what is up with the white furry jacket? I know he’s a pretty boy, but really, do they really need to dress him in such things? He isn’t a girl, did they forget that? Although I am digging the hair a bit, long hair, shaved sides, reminds me of my old haircut. What I do like are his earrings. They’re pretty nice, looks like it’s to be about 0G. Now if he can only gain maybe like 5-10 pounds and not look like he’s anorexic, he’d be a lot hotter.

While I’m prone to say this is “omg ahaha”, what really got my attention in his performance was the camera work. That has got to be one of the worst cameraman workmanship I have seen. Not only did the camera man focus on G-Dragon’s misfortune, but you can’t even see the entire performance. What about the people in the control room? That couldn’t have been the only camera on set, as the stage is placed between two sets of audiences.

I don’t know about you, but I think that cameraman’s lack of ‘camera work’ is a lot more faulty than the wardrobe malfunction. It was more of a fancam than anything else.

I’m adding this because I like the the choreography.
