\When my 13 year old eyes laid down on the new K-Pop group, Big Bang, I was instantly in love. I honestly didn’t know what their songs meant but every time I sing along to Tae Yang‘s lyrics, G-Dragon‘s electrical composition or even rapping along T.O.P‘s, I knew that I didn’t want any other Korean boy band.
It was actually my then 18 year old cousin who got me hooked. I remember one time, we were inside the car, on our way to Tagaytay that the only songs blasting from our earphones are those of Big Bang’s. It was a very wild obsession–from simply listening to songs to watching music videos and TVCs to watching (and patiently downloading) Youtube videos of their many Television show guesting and as huge as buying a DVD of their Global Warming Tour (2008).
Since being a V.I.P, I’ve always wished they’d go here in the Philippines and throw a big concert and they actually did weeks ago and I was very VERY disappointed to not have to go. So I just had to settle down with watching their (fairly) old music videos and sing along. Le tears 😦 but the week before their concert, I actually bought a local magazine with them on the cover; I was mindlessly scanning through books and magazines at Book Sale when I went across Sparkling Magazine (published by Summit Media) October issue without thinking, I grabbed it and headed for the counter to pay 150 bucks for a 60+ paged glossy magazine. I actually might regret it soon. Eep!

Maybe, if I’d wish again, they’ll come back for another concert. I’m pretty good with these wishes, they might actually come again. Lol So in the mean time, I’m leaving you with my fave music videos from the start of their career.
