And the answers were “I’d like to take the subway”, “I’d like to ride on a bicycle through the streets of MyongDong”, “I’d like to eat Ddeok Bokki (spicy rice cakes) by the road sides”.
We see the pureness and youth of an ordinary 20-year-old in the Big Bang members, the ones who took the Kpop scene by storm this year.
Big Bang has started their 2nd album ‘Remember’ activities. Big Bang, who has been working without a rest for this 2 years and 6 months, was posed the question of what they would like to do if they can go on a vacation.

Q: This time for your title song ‘Sunset Glow’, it’s a remake of a famous song.
GDragon: We try to convey a message of hope for many people who are feeling wary of reality. Had wanted to do this since some time back and I had a talk with Yang president. So we took up the challenge and did the remake of this famous song.
Q: Helping the residents who are also the victims of the oil spill in the West Coast as the subject of your MV is really some refreshing.
TaeYang: We wanted to help out with the oil spill since last year but we couldn’t and it was a shame.”
GDragon: Even though we released a lot of minialbums, we try to put in a message for our full-length album. The release of our 1st album ‘Dirty Cash’ looked at the society at the time of a economy crisis. And for this 2nd album, we want to put in the message of hope.”
Q: You released albums after albums without rest.
TaeYang: Because we don’t want to forget. (Laugh) It will not be right if we take a rest. It seems that it is luck on our part that we can continuously release albums. And we thought it is something that we should do to produce enjoyable music at the right time to the masses.
Q: It seems that you guys have as little as no rest since your debut. When will your long vacation come?
SeungRi: It seems we can’t rest for even a day. But we would think that busy is a good thing too. We can’t do much to the fact that we are tired. We are in fact thankful that we can be this busy.
Q: What if, you are given 2 days of rest?
GDragon: I’d like to go to the amusement park with my friends. And I’d like to eat ddeok bbokki on the streets in a place with many people like in MyungDong. It’s been like 4 years since I last did this.”
TaeYang: Me too. When I was still a trainee with JiYoungie, we have a lot of fun taking the subway together to go for our training.
SeungRi: I would like to ride through the streets of MyungDong on a bicycle. I have been wanting to ride a bicycle a lot lately.
TOP: I’d like to find a quiet place and sleep during these 2 days. This is the practical way. Right now, we have to meet so many people in a day, this can be a rather tiring lifestyle.
