Big Bang’s Electric Love Bus

Big Bang finally started their 2010 tour in Japan called “ELECTRIC LOVE TOUR.” To commemorate this wonderful occasion they guys designed their own tour bus. The group will be in Japan this month to do their tour and then head back home.

They kicked off their tour in Yokohama Arena yesterday (2/10) and will do another show tonight and will head to Kobe World Hall (13~14), Nippon Budokan (16~17), Osaka and Nagoya.

SeungRi stated, “I can’t wait to go back home [to Korea.]” While G-Dragon informs their fans that “all the preparations have been going smoothly, so please enjoy it to your hearts content.

If your attending the concert tour and have not been informed of the guidelines, you should take a look at their official Japanese website as they have instructions for conduct before, during and after the show; also information on how to give presents to the members, available in Japanese, Korean and English. You can view them here.

If you can’t make it to the concert, have no fear. TBS Channel will be airing a line up of Big Bang concerts for all their fans.

Did Namie Amuro plagiarize?

First it was G-Dragon who was under the scrutiny of Korean netizens, this time its Japanese artist Namie Amuro.

South Korean magazine has stated that Amuro’s cover for her upcoming album “PAST < FUTURE” is a copy and Japan’s netizens on 2ch are calling it an “international disgrace” and are saying that the cover should be changed immediately. Japan is very proud of its top stars so for a Korean fashion magazine to publish this is a disgrace, especially since South Korea has been ‘plagiarizing’ (so to speak) Japan (i.e. the TV/variety shows) earlier this year.

Amuro who will release her new album “PAST < FUTURE” after 2-years has gained popularity all over Asia. She is a Oricon Chart topper and is voted as ‘most liked celebrity’ and ‘nicest female artist and lifestyle’ (ok its something along those lines, not exactly).

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.

TaeYang is asking WHERE U AT?

TaeYang just released his new digital single, “Where U At?

I’m not going to go into details other than Lyle Beniga and Shaun Evaristo totally kill this choreo. So does TY.  So it’s safe to say that Shaun wasn’t only doing GD, but TaeYang’s project while he was in Korea.

What I want to know, is how come they come up with sick choreo’s for TaeYang, but when it comes to GD, its just not as intricate or looks just as awesome. Oh well. Here you go.

Enjoy the coolness of this song and the choreo because the choreo is sick. And the fact that Lyle and Shaun are both in it makes it cooler. That means the level of skills were all up to par and not lacking.

While I’m at it, here’s a piece that Lyle did for the movie FAME. It’s the Halloween piece.

Also a Lyle with s**t kingz workshop tour in Tokyo. This is just too cool not to show. I always love how you can tell if an American choreographed it as opposed to a Japanese.

Shaun Evaristo & Lyle Beniga for Tae Yang

lyle shaun aimee yongbae

So maybe it’s not Shaun choreographing TaeYang‘s new song “WHERE U AT“, maybe it’s Shaun’s friend Lyle Beniga. Or maybe they both are working on more than one song for TaeYang?

Lyle twittered on 9/29, “leaving 2day…Just wanna say m/v is gonna look amazing & I’m very proud of YB!!

lyle twitter

Shaun also just came back from Korea two to three days ago. He even posted a photo of Tae Yang and Aimee when they went to eat. So it’s possible that they [Shaun and Lyle] both choreographed for Tae Yang.

That or Shaun was there choreographing one of GD‘s new songs and it happened to be at the same time. Also since Aimee Lucas was with Shaun this time in Seoul, does this mean that she was choreographing for 2NE1‘s new album? Or was she there just to hang out?

Either way, it’s just cool that YG has some of the world’s most wicked choreographers coming to choreo for one of Korea’s best hip hop idols.
