The K-pop group debuted on Aug. 19, 2006 in the “YG Family 10th Anniversary” concert. YG Entertainment’s first teen-idol group after six years of preparation turned out to be a megahit, as it stormed the charts with excellent rap skills and powerful performances.

Big Bang has churned out a flurry of megahit songs, including “Fantastic Baby,” “Lies,” “Haru Haru” and “Bang Bang Bang.” It has 13 music videos with more than 100 million views each.

Currently, all of the group’s bandmates except Seungri are serving their mandatory military duty.

The latest EP, “Flower Road,” written by G-Dragon and T.O.P, was released in March when Daesung started his military service. The song tells fans about Big Bang’s beautiful memories and wishes for the day they meet again.
