Celebrating their 10th anniversary was a big accomplishment for BIGBANG and marking this accomplishment the group conducted an interview at their tenth anniversary exhibition.
Conducting the interview at S-Factory in Sungsu-dong, Seoul, the group talked about the past ten years, answering questions, and taking fans on a personal journey. As a group, they addressed what makes them stand out from others in the industry, what has kept them together for this long, and what their future holds.
Recently CNN Press Room posted an article online giving fans a sneak peak into BIGBANG’S interview which is set to air next month. In the interview the group did for Talk Asia, they addressed pressed issues that fans have been asking for some time. BIGBANG also talked about their upcoming mandatory military duties, Taeyang addressed the question with his concern over their fans:
“We have been asked questions concerning that the most. Of course, there are many tasks and responsibilities lying ahead of us, but those are stuff we are supposed to do naturally. Apart from that, as how we did so far, or because we want to fill the next 10 years in a better way, I think that’s why many people worry even more. Fans or the public….”
When asked about where they see themselves in ten years, each member added a personal perspective:
Taeyang said, “Whatever happens, it’s been like this so far, but I think we are going to continue doing stuff that each of us want to do and like doing.”
G-Dragon said, “It might be slow, but we moved forward continuously and that’s why I think we are here. I think that’s how it will be in the future.”
T.O.P said, “I hope we have been making new examples that didn’t exist before and I want to become someone who can contribute a lot to the Korean culture.”
Daesung said, “We hope to be a bigger influence to the overall genre, a good influence.”
