Idol group Big Bang’s latest book ‘Shouting Out To The World’ is actually a book about self-development rather than of an autobiography.
That was what Big Bang members said when they were holding a press conference on 6th February in Seoul Press Centre for the release of the book.
Member DaeSung said, “This book is not about our success stories but rather our true thoughts and experiences that we go through this while.”
Leader GDragon, “Yes, like DaeSung-goon has said, this book is not about our success stories. Many people see us as the Big Bang who are always at a good spot. But what if we tell you we were actually floating stars? People will understand how we got to where we are now through this book.”
Member TaeYang, “The things we dreamt about before we debut as singers, the pain and troubles that we go through after that, the book will introduce to readers all these one by one. The book talks about our dreams as singers and also the future that we dream of and want to chase after for.”
And member SeungRi said, “When Yang Hyun Seok’s representative told us about the plan for this book, we were doubtful at first. But we understood that this is not the book about what we have done well, but about the dreams of 5 teenagers and how they were realised. We hope to embrace readers with hope and courage.”
The book ‘Shouting Out To The World’ was released on 28th January and has risen up to the #1 best seller list. Currently, a total of 160,000 copies have been sold.
Leader GDragon also talks about how of all the songs that he has self-composed, ‘Haru Haru/ Day by Day’ has been the most meaningful one for him.
He said, “Even though I like all the songs, I personally think that ‘Haru HaruDay by Day’ is the most meaningful song for me. Personally I feel that this song has the biggest sacrifice meaning to it.”
GDragon also revealed, “Fans and students have sent me many books. Whenever I had the time, I would read the books. But to say the truth, I feel that my level of writing is not to the level of my lyric writing.”
GDragon also revealed about his upcoming solo debut, “Right now, TaeYang and I are working hard on it. But I will come out with my solo works 4-5 months earlier than TaeYang.”
