Two years and ten months, that is how long it has been since K-Pop last had a comeback from Big Bang. Up until this point, we have had rumors and excuses as to why we V.I.P‘s had to wait. Then we started to see teaser photos and, in true YG Entertainment fashion, they gave us nothing but a date then we got a time. But the date give was April 1st also known as April Fools Day. So many us were just afraid that it was just another YG troll and he was was toying with our emotions yet again.
Now it looks like the guys of Big Bang are just doing more then a simple comeback. They are going to make history. According to the newest teaser we are not getting not 1, not 2 , not 3 , but 5 new releases this year. That right ladies and gentlemen , boys and girls 5 releases in 2015. That is unprecedented it is not done in the industry and yet it is something that is totally Big Bang’s style.
Five releases in one year, one release a month for 5 months . If this is in fact true, and these dates correspond to song/video releases, then Big Bang is not simply coming back but also making a statement. In my mind, Big Bang is reminding the rest of K-Pop why they are more than just another group but a global force. This group has something rare in KPOP and that is a strong domestic and international fan base. Most of the groups have one or the other.
For 2015 I am predicting a good old fashion fan-war. Based on the comeback dates, we know Big Bang will be going head to head with some of K-Pop’s most popular yet still very much junior groups. Many of these groups that we all know and love have had success thanks in part to the fact they have not had to challenge a group like Big Bang. It will be exciting to see what the next 6 months bring us from the YG powerhouse.
On a more somber note, unfortunately there are rumbling across the K-Pop universe that this is the beginning of the end for Big Bang. Let’s face it; the group has been enjoying success with their solo projects. So is this the end or are the guys just making up for lost time? Only time can tell and all we can do is wait.
